Get your carts ready, shoppers! It’s official: Amazon Prime Day 2019 is here, and we’ve got all the details so you can score the best discounts before the event of the summer wraps up tonight.

Prime Day 2019 is even bigger and more impressive than Black Friday, making it an excellent time to save on smart home and electronics, Amazon devices, home and kitchen products, beauty and skincare, and so much more. Shoppers can take advantage of the many lightning deals and special Spotlight sales on best-selling items across its many departments now through July 16 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

Here’s everything else you need to know about Prime Day 2019, including some of the best deals Prime members can score right now.

When is Prime Day?

Prime Day 2019 has already kicked off and will run through Tuesday, July 16 at 11:59 p.m. The news comes after a recently leaked press release hinted that the event may be scheduled for that day. Last year, the global shopping holiday lasted 36 hours, and began on Monday, July 16. This year’s 48-hour event is even longer.

How can I get the best deals?

To shop all of Amazon’s Prime Day deals, you must be a Prime member, but don’t fret! Anyone can sign up for a free 30-day trial while students can score a free six-month trial and discounted membership. Your membership will grant you access to every Prime Day sale, in addition to complimentary two-day shipping on tons of items and free same-day delivery on thousands more, discounts at Whole Food Markets, streaming on Prime Video and Prime Music, and even more benefits.

What are the best things to buy on Amazon?

With impressive discounts across all departments and product categories, it’s one of the best times of the year to treat yourself to something special (a new television or robot vacuum, for instance) in addition to stocking up on basics like sheets, towels, and cleaning products.

Amazon will feature both its famous Lightning Deals, which are limited-time discounts offered on a set quantity of products, and Spotlight Deals, which typically offer bigger savings on popular, more expensive products.

Last year, the Instant Pot pressure cooker was Amazon’s best-selling product on Prime Day. Shoppers can expect incredible Instant Pot sales yet again, among other impressive savings on popular televisions, kitchen gadgets and countertop appliances, smartwatches, and Apple products.

It’s also one of the best times to save on Amazon’s array of devices including its Kindles, Echo Dots and Shows, Fire TV Sticks, and Amazon Fire Tablets, as well as Alexa-compatible products like speakers, smart bulbs, and more.
