Amazon Prime Day is less than a week away, and we’re getting ready to round up the very best Amazon Prime Day 2018 Deals for you when the event begins.

There are sure to be a plethora of deals on everything ranging from PC accessories and hardware, to Switch consoles, PS4 Games, and Xbox One Live and Game Pass deals.
Once Prime Day 2018 kicks off we’ll update this page regularly with the best gaming (and related items) deals. You’ll find every gaming-related Amazon Prime Day deal just below, along with the time that the specific deal starts going by East Coast time.
The Best Amazon Prime Day Gaming Deals – 2018
We’ll be updating this page throughout the Amazon Prime Day period (July 16-17), catching any new gaming deals that Amazon decides to put as well as revealing the exact percentage you can expect to save on every gaming-related product, right as the deal goes live. There aren’t many great deals on at the moment, but we have some for you below, mostly for Amazon products including Kindles and Echo devices.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2018?
Amazon Prime Day 2018 starts on July 16, 2018 at 12 PM PT/3 PM ET. Prime Day 2018 will run for 36 hours (that’s not a day, is it Amazon!), so there will be plenty of deals to look out for.
Prime Day 2018 deals on Amazon (US and UK) will only be available to Prime members.
If you aren’t already an Amazon Prime member (and haven’t been a member in the past) you can get a 30-day trial. If you’re returning to Prime you’ll most likely have to pay the membership fee. You can sign up for Amazon Prime in the US here, or in the UK here.
It’s best to get signed up ahead of time so you don’t miss out on the best deals during Prime Day 2081. Some deals will be what Amazon calls Lightning Deals. These are very time limited and in short supply, so you don’t want to be wasting time signing up for Prime and miss out.
Free PC Games for Amazon Prime Day 2018
Signing up to Amazon Prime will also make you a member of Twitch Prime, which offers may bonuses including free PC games. You can sign up for Amazon Prime in the US here, or in the UK here, and both regions offer free-trials if you want to see if the membership is worthwhile.
The free games on offer from Twitch Prime over July are being givered a staggered release and are only available between certain dates. We’ve listed them all below, so make sure you log in during those periods to claim your free PC games on Twitch Prime.
