For the latest on Amazon Prime Day check out our 2018 coverage here.

It’s the third annual Amazon Prime Day, the members-only pseudo holiday filled with flash sales and deep discounts at the country’s largest online retailer. Keeping track of Prime Day is a daunting task, so we’ve teamed up with Vox Media’s commerce editor Chloe Reznikov to try and keep tabs on deals as they’re breaking.

Amazon Prime Day starts July 10 at 9 p.m. EST and runs until 2:59 a.m. on Wednesday, July 12. We’ll update this story throughout the day, adding deals as they come up and crossing them off when they’re no longer available. We’ll be focused on games and hardware, but if you you find something extraordinary in another, parallel category feel free to drop it in the comments below.

Of course, if you’re looking for the best deals in tech our friends at The Verge are rounding them up as well.

First things first. To participate in the best parts of Prime Day you need to be an Amazon Prime member, which will run you a cool $99 for one year. There are some big benefits to having a Prime membership, including Prime Video and Prime Music. You will also automatically get Twitch Prime, which grants you a bunch of perks on the streaming service including free games, ad-free viewing and one free channel subscription every 30 days. Of course, there’s also free two-day shipping on everything you order.

If you’re not already a Prime member, consider signing up for a free 30 day trial.
