If you're looking for great deals on tech products, the next two days of Amazon Prime Day – July 11 through July 12 – will be your best opportunity to bargain hunt until Black Friday. The sheer volume of products on sale can be overwhelming, some of the best deals are time-limited, and, of course, you need to do your due diligence to ensure that you're actually getting a good deal (check out our tips on how to get the best deals on Amazon Prime Day). So, to help get you started, I've pulled together a curated list of deals I've vetted to be great bargains.

The C2 series is LG's 2022 line of mid-range OLED TVs, and they are stunning. They have some of the highest picture-quality ratings in the industry, with superb black levels and fast response times for gamers. And for OLED TV, it's bright. The consensus among professional reviewers is that this year's C3 model doesn't bring much more to the table, so snap up this deal.

We fell in love with The Frame (2022) and gave it a Techlicious Top Pick of CES 2022 award. While not on deep discount, the product has just launched, and it's at its lowest price to date.

In our testing, we found the QN90C to be a movie lover's dream, "delivering one of the most accurate pictures available in a 4K TV, with plenty of brightness, and without compromises in clarity or color, making it one of the top TVs at any price."

Streaming media players

Fire TV Stick 4K Max – Price: $24.99 (save $30.00)

The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is my favorite Fire TV stick because it has WiFi 6 for better streaming, a fast processor for smoother apps, a voice remote, and picture-in-picture to stay on top of live TV.

Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote – Price: $16.99 (save $23.00)

If you need streaming apps for cheap and don't need 4K, this is a no-brainer.

Roku Streaming Stick 4K – Price: $34.99 (save $15.00)

The Streaming Stick 4K sits in the middle of Roku's lineup with 4K streaming with support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ and reliable 802.11ac dual-band MIMO wireless. The only thing missing is the fancy Voice Remote Pro, which is rechargeable and has hands-free, voice-activated operation. If you need the better remote, you can add that for $29.99 and still come out $5 ahead.

Roku Streambar – Price: $89.99 (save $40.00)

If you're looking for a streaming media player and better sound for a secondary TV, the Roku Streambar fills both needs at a bargain price.

Chromecast with Google TV – Price: $39.99 (save $10.00)

I've been using Chromecast with Google TV for months and find it to be the simplest to use of the streaming media players on the market. Catch it while it's on sale.

TCL 40XL (256GB, 6GB RAM) – Price: $125.99 (save $74)

TCL is known for its high-quality budget-friendly TVs, and it shows in the quality of the 6.75-inch on this entry-level Android phone. It has an impressive 50MP camera, runs Android 13, and has plenty of power for everyday tasks. The tradeoffs are no 5G, no water resistance, no wireless charging, and no NFC (so no tap to pay). But for the price, it’s a great deal.

Samsung Galaxy S23 (128 GB) – Price: $599.99 (save $200.00)

This year, Samsung gives you two good reasons to upgrade it its Galaxy S23 line of phones; a much more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and significantly improved cameras.

This large 11-inch Android tablet is powerful enough to serve as a secondary computer when paired with the Book Cover Keyboard Slim ($72.99, save $67). And it's perfect for note-taking with the included S Pen.


Pebblebee Card and Pebblebee Clip – Price: each $20.99 (save $9.00)

Pebblebee's Card for wallets and the Pebblebee Clip for keychains leverage the massive Apple Find My network, making them just as useful as an Apple AirTag ($28.50). Plus, they're rechargeable, so you don't have to swap out batteries when the battery dies. In my testing, I found the Pebblebee trackers are just as easy to set up as an AirTag, and they work well, with a clearly audible alert when you ping your item.

 Apple Watch Series 8 – Price: starting at $279, save $120 on all models

You rarely see Apple Watch at this big a discount. Price: 41mm GPS $279 (save $120), 41mm GPS + Cellular $379 (save $120), 45mm GPS $309 (save $120), 45mm GPS + Cellular $409 (save $120)

Samsung Galaxy Watch5 – Price: starting at $159.99 (save $120.00)

If you have a Samsung phone, the smartwatch to buy is the Galaxy Watch5 because of the tight integration between the devices. It has everything you need to track fitness and features advanced health tracking, including taking blood pressure and an ECG. And if you get the LTE version, you don't need your phone for calls, texts, and data. Professional reviewers love it, too. If you don't have a Samsung phone, know that some features, like the blood pressure readings and ECG, won't work. 

Withings ScanWatch – Price: $239.95 (save $60.00)

If you like the look of an analog watch but want a smartwatch, this is the smartwatch for you. It can take an ECG and tracks sleep, heart rate, blood oxygen levels, and much more.

Amazon's Echo Show 10 makes video chat hands-free, from answering calls to keeping you in focus. I bought one at the end of last year and have been using it to visit my mom virtually in her skilled nursing facility. She doesn't have to do a thing. The camera swivels on the base to keep her in the frame and the display in view. It's been a gift for both of us.

Anker 622 Magnetic Battery – Price: $39.99 (save $30.00)

If you have an iPhone 12 or newer, you'll love this 5,000mAh battery with a built-in kickstand that can attach magnetically to your phone. It's not particularly speedy, charging wirelessly at 7.5 watts or wired at 12 watts, but it is convenient.

Anker Nano II 65-watt charger – Price: $33.99 (save $16.00)

I use this tiny 65-watt charger in place of the huge power brick that came with my laptop. It not only saves space, but it’s also lighter in my bag.

It has a loud siren and bright light to scare away intruders for outdoor use. And, like most security cameras today, it has two-way audio so that you can communicate with your pets for indoor use. The security camera consistently earns high marks by professional reviewers, with the quibble that a subscription is required to record video and some other features.

Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 – Price: $149.99 (save $100)

While the Video Doorbell Pro 2 has been on the market for a few years, it's still one of the best options on the market. In our testing, we found that it had few false alerts, thanks to radar collecting accurate motion information and the ability to see a head-to-toe picture of visitors at the front door. It also maps where visitors go within your yard.

eero Pro 6E tri-band mesh WiFi – Price: $399.99 for a 3-pack (save $150.00)

I like the eero products because they are incredibly simple to set up and use. While on the expensive side, the WiFi 6E standard will future-proof your WiFi for years to come, with high speeds and a 6Ghz channel (in addition to 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz).

eero 6+ dual-band mesh Wi-Fi 6 system – Price: $194 (save $105.00)

This robotic floor cleaner will mop your floors and vacuum your carpets for up to two months with minimal maintenance on your part. That's because it empties its dustbin and washes and dries its mop head between uses.

iRobot Roomba Combo j7+ – Price: $799.00 (save $300.99)

We gave the Roomba Combo j7+ an Editor's Choice award after reviewing it. It has plenty of suction, navigates well, and takes care of dry debris for weeks at a time.

Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro – Price: $209.00 (save $129.59)

If you have a pet that sheds as much as mine does, you'll appreciate this two-in-one corded vacuum and mop. You can vacuum copious amounts of fur and mop in a single pass.
