Amazon Prime Day Deals Galore: PC Gaming Hardware, Storage, Laptops, Wireless Earbuds And More
There might not actually be a Christmas in July, but this year there is a Prime Day in June, and with it comes a host of discounts on practically every kind of item imaginable. Wondering where to start in your hunt with a bargain? Well, you have come to the right place. We've rounded up some noteworthy discounts across a few different categories, including PC gaming, laptops, audio gear, and more.
Depending on how much you plan to spend, and/or whether you frequently shop at Amazon (as many people do), the first order of business should be to claim a $10 promotional credit that is available when buying $40 in Amazon gift cards. Just hit the link and tap the "Apply code to your account button" or enter in promo code GCPRIME2021 at checkout. Then either add $40 or more in select Amazon.com gift cards or reload that amount to your existing gift card balance, and you'll receive a $10 promotional credit within two days.
That means the discount might actually arrive after the Prime Day sales event has ended. However, it's still a neat perk, especially since Amazon is home to frequent sales.
