Fetch your credit cards: Amazon Prime Day has officially started and will last today through tomorrow. For the uninitiated, the e-retailer’s biggest sale and shopping-palooza occurs once a year and is basically like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and every other big shopping holiday wrapped up in a cardboard box with blue tape and a smiley arrow.

So, when is Prime Day?

While it debuted as a 24-hour flash sale in 2015, the popular event has morphed into a two-day blowout. This year’s sale will be happening June 21 and 22. Deals officially started going live at midnight PST (3 a.m. EST) and will last for 48 hours, so act quick to score what you want and before things sell out.

What are the best deals?

Chances are whatever you’ve been eyeing will be included—the e-comm giant will be offering a whopping 2 million deals across each category so everything will be majorly marked down. Big ticket tech items like TVs and laptops? Of course. Bestsellers like Apple AirPods and Apple Watch? Check. New kitchen appliances? Yes. Fashion staples such as customer-favorite swimsuits and summer sandals? You betcha. Amazon-branded devices like Kindle and Echo Show? Indeed. Some of Oprah’s Favorite Things? Oh, yeah! A few are up to 50 percent off.

How do I shop?

Don’t forget—you must be an Amazon Prime member to enjoy these deals so if you haven’t joined yet, carpe diem. Membership is $12.99 per month or $119 for the year (if you don't want to commit yet, sign up for a free 30-day trial) and in addition to these exclusive savings, year-round benefits include fast and free shipping on many products, movie and TV streaming, discounts at Whole Foods, and many more perks.
