Update: Prime day has ended. Thanks for joining us!

The big day is finally here! From now until 3 a.m., July 12, expect to see thousands upon thousands of deals popping up all because of Amazon's Prime Day. Our team at Thrifter will be hosting a live blog all day Tuesday, July 11, where they will be dropping the best deals they can find as they go live. Follow Thrifter on Twitter for up-to-date deal drops, too.

You have to be a Prime member to participate in Prime Day, but there are ways to save if you don't want to pay the full cost of Prime. If you aren't a Prime member at all, you can sign up for the 30-day free trial and still participate. If you sign up for Prime using an Alexa-enabled device, you can get $20 off for a year. Then you can use that same device to shop with your voice.
