Welcome again, friends, to the best tech deals Amazon Prime Day 2022 has to offer. It’s now day two and our Verge Deals team is ready for another round of discounts and deals that really pay off. Instead of trudging through Amazon’s annual garage sale of surplus items yourself, let’s help you.

There are certainly some worthwhile discounts for those in the market for wireless earbuds, smart home technology, phones, TVs, games, and some other opportunities and targets. For example, the Beats Fit Pro are some of the best earbuds out there and they’re $40 off, and the unique Samsung M8 monitor/smart TV hybrid in green is $180 off.

Our goal is to focus on products we know are good, and products with valuable discounts. So check out our list below that we’ll be updating throughout the day, as well as check out some of the “anti-Prime Day” deals we also cover at Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.

We also blog live about new deals as we find them, along with certain highlights that we find particularly interesting, so you can hear more from our team there.
