    I am a Prime member and am hoping to pick up a decent backup laptop for my daughter to use at school at a good price...but, I can't even sniff a login to Amazon.
    Get an oops screen every time with some pics of stupid dogs. Tried my phone and a PC.
    I'm guessing all the good deals will be gone by this evening and I'll be left picking the crumbs...

    I'm on but there is nothing here.. There UX/UI SUCKS and so do there deals. They really should just call it, "Hey, let's lower the price on the Sh%t we can't sell because they are worthless" Day

    Couldn't get on at first but have been on for the last 20-30 minutes. Nothing great so far. Saw a cool Japanese Chef's knife but it was 100% claimed already.

    Saw some cool looking ear buds with good ratings. But they were wired. I don't do wired. I'm not a caveman for gawd's sake!

    Exactly what I am worried about if there are any good laptop deals...

    Got in and there are only a couple of laptop deals at this point or coming up soon...I have a few solid requirements, like W10 Pro, SSD only or SSD+HD, i5 or better, not refurbished, and lightweight with a decent sized screen (DD uses a gaming laptop at school now and I'd like her backup to be something a lot easier to carry). Nothing on super sale is fitting the bill as I type...

    Was hoping to get some deals but I'm not a Prime user, don't think getting a Prime account would be worth it, so guess I'm out on it. Hoping those of you on Amazon get the deals you're looking for.

    Guess it makes sense that the bargain laptops for Prime Day are going to tend to be ones with W10 Home for more casual users.
    Looks like using my employee discount to order a custom unit directly from a manufacturer is going to make a lot more sense...the DD is a CS major and I think that getting her a more full featured OS like Pro is a must.

    They had a pretty good Chromebook laptop deal yesterday and a few others. I ended up getting one of their Amazon Fire TVs but that was a deal of the day instead of a Prime Day deal.

    They had some good wireless deals. IIRC they had some wireless Bose headphones half off and I'm pretty sure they had some Beats earbuds on sale too.

    If you don't mind spending $150 I recommend checking out the Bose Soundsports. I bought a few pairs a while back of those and their competitors in the same price range, tried them out, kept those, and returned the rest. The thing that put them over the top of the others was the sound, better connection, and at least for me, better fit which is important for something I use pretty much every day. It's really annoying to have earbuds that are uncomfortable after 30 minutes or fall out all the time.

    I'd really like to get some Bose over ear wireless headphones. I've got some great Sony ones, but I'm always looking to upgrade audio equipment.... but only at sale prices!
