With just one day left until Amazon Prime Day — or shall we say Prime Days — Amazon is gearing up to drop a lot of amazing deals that’s exclusive for their members. It’s one of the biggest shopping events of the year with deep savings on millions of products throughout the retailer’s website.

If you’re looking to save on household products, electronics and laptops, clothes and shoes, video games, fashion accessories, kitchen appliances, 4K TVs, and more, then Prime Day is one of the best times of the year for the price savvy.

Since there are so many deals going on during the shopping event, it might seem difficult and overwhelming to comb through each and every one to find the best discounts for you. That’s where we come in.

We’re going to scour Amazon (and other retailers) for the best deals on the products that you actually want. In fact, Amazon has already dropped a few early deals just before the official start of Prime Day, so if you’re looking for a head start on the savings, scroll down and start shopping.

Do I need to be a Prime member?

Yes, Prime Day is exclusive to only Prime members. However, if you’re not a member and don’t want to spend $119 per year for all of the amazing perks and discounts available for members, there are ways to get the most out of Prime Day for free. Interested? Just read this article and it will walk you through the process to sign up for a free 30-day trial membership.

How do I find the best deals?

Some of the best deals will be found on Amazon’s Gold Box deals page. This is a good place to start and where the online retailer’s “Deals of the Day” spotlights are found, as well as the company’s “Lightning Deals” — which typically last for a few hours. However, Prime members get access to these deals 30 minutes before non-members. So if a product sells out within 30 minutes, non-members are out of luck.

Meanwhile, follow Yahoo Lifestyle on Facebook and Twitter to stay on top of the best deals during Prime Day. You can also follow our live-blog during the two-day event.
