Amazon Prime Day Best Gaming Deals For Switch, PlayStation, Xbox, And More

After being delayed several months due to COVID-19, Amazon Prime Day 2020 is still happening, and it’s live right now on Amazon’s website with thousands of deals available, with more to come over the next 48 hours. As usual, you’ll need a Prime membership to shop the sale, and a 30-day free trial is available.

Despite happening later than usual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Day is bringing steep discounts on some of the best games for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Prime Day is also an excellent opportunity to snag consoles and PC hardware at a discount, and you’ll also find sweet deals on gaming accessories, merch, Blu-rays, collectibles, and practically anything on your wish list. If you’re looking to shop in the Prime Day sale, we’ve got you covered. Below, we’ve rounded up the very best deals so far and everything else you need to know.

Keep in mind you’ll need to be logged in to see Prime Day prices. On a listing, look for the blue Prime Day Deal label–your price at checkout will be indicated to the right of it. Other retailers are also holding anti-Prime Day sales this week. We’ve included some of those deals below (when those prices aren’t available at Amazon).

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is a massive sale Amazon puts on each summer (usually in July) for Prime members. It all began in 2015, when Amazon had a sale to celebrate its 20th birthday. In the years since, Prime Day has grown into a shopping extravaganza in its own right, with deep discounts on all kinds of items across the whole store.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?

Amazon Prime Day 2020 kicked off at midnight PT / 3 AM ET on Tuesday, October 13, and will end at 11:59 PM PT on Wednesday, October 14 (2:59 AM ET on October 15). The event will last a full 48 hours as it has in recent years.

How much is Amazon Prime?

The catch, of course, is that you have to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of Prime Day deals. The annual price of a Prime membership is $119 / £79, or you can get a one-month membership for just $13 / £8. Having to buy a subscription is a bummer, but there are ways around dropping cash just to take part in Prime Day. If you’ve never been a Prime member before, you can get a free 30-day trial just by signing up. Students get an even better deal: the Prime Student membership begins with a free six-month trial.

Even if you’re a lapsed Prime member and you can’t get the free trial, signing up for a one-month membership may be worthwhile, depending on what Prime Day deals you want to take advantage of.

Best tips for Amazon Prime Day

To get the most out of Prime Day, it’s best to know exactly what you’re shopping for. Otherwise, it’s easy to get sucked down the rabbit hole of Amazon’s endless lineup of deals. While Black Friday offers you a lot of time to plan for the exact deals you want to take advantage of, Prime Day deals are generally kept secret until the event kicks off, so you’ll want to be ready at your computer that day to snag anything you want. The best deals are sure to sell out quickly.

There are different types of Prime Day deals to be aware of, and understanding what these are can help your planning. Prime Day really kicks off about a week beforehand with early access or countdown deals. Throughout the event, you’ll also see spotlight deals–these run for 24 hours and can take place during the lead-up to Prime Day as well as the event itself. Lightning deals tend to be some of the best discounts of Prime Day, but these are limited-time, limited-stock items that will sell out fast. The best way to keep up with those is through the Amazon app on your phone as well as the upcoming deals page on Amazon. Hit “watch this deal” to get notified when it starts. Finally, there will be thousands of Prime Day-exclusive deals that run the entire duration of Prime Day, which will likely be 48 hours this year. These offers are still likely to sell out if they feature popular items, like the Nintendo Switch.
