Amazon Prime Day: Live expert advice for all the best deals

Amazon Prime Day: Live expert advice for all the best deals

If you don't have access to a laptop or desktop, then you'll want to download the Amazon Shopping app on your smartphone.

Once you have your list of products you want, go to their product pages and write down their prices.

These are good discounts and more will be revealed in the coming hours. That's in addition to other deals on toys, sporting goods and bedding.

Not all sales are equally appealing. But, for baby Amazon-ers, all the terms and deals can get a big confusing so here's everything you need to know so you're fully prepared for Australia's official second Christmas.

Over holidays, for instance, retailers often offer steep discounts on everything from computers to appliances.

Prime Day, which is when members of the subscription service can find special deals on the company's website and in Whole Foods store, first began in 2015.

Controllers, headsets, memory cards, and other accessories make up a core part of the hobby for many gamers, and having the right gear is crucial. Just keep in mind that there's a fee if you don't meet that minimum.

So before you click the purchase button, be sure that the deal you're getting is really a deal.

As discussed, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and eBay, among others, are all planning to rain on Amazon's parade with some sales of their own.

That means consumers are likely to see major price cuts across the range of Echo speakers and Amazon is already giving a taste of what could be to come. Amazon will obviously get most of the attention, since its sales event will have the most deals, but you might be surprised by the savings you can get elsewhere.

You can shop Prime Day without even using your hands. We even tapped the experts from Thrifter.com, the best damn deals site on the web, to help us out. You can also search by product category using the drop-down from the top-left corner.
