Amazon Prime Day 2022: the best last-minute deals you can still get

Welcome once again, friends, to the best tech deals Amazon Prime Day 2022 has to offer. It’s now the end of day two, and our Verge Deals team is just about done highlighting the deals and discounts that are actually worth a damn. Instead of trudging through Amazon’s annual garage sale of overstock items yourself, however, let us help you.

There are definitely still some worthwhile discounts for those in the market for wireless earbuds, smart home tech, phones, TVs, games, and some other odds and ends. For example, the Beats Fit Pro are some of the best earbuds around and they’re $40 off, as is the unique Samsung M8 monitor / smart TV hybrid, which is on sale in green for $180 off.

Our goal is to focus on tech products that we know are good and ones with worthwhile discounts. So check out the list below for some last-minute discounts, or peruse some of the “anti-Prime Day” deals we’re covering at Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.
