Amazon's October Prime Day event is finally over, but not all of the best deals have ended.

Whether you're here to grab your next great Android phone, a new smart TV to level up your watch parties and gaming sessions, or the highest quality earbuds you can afford because someone new moved in upstairs (and they're a stomper), you have precious few hours left to snap up one of these deals that Amazon forgot to switch off before you get stuck waiting for Black Friday.

Without further ado, we've sifted through all of our favorite Prime Day deals to round up these spectacular and still-alive savings for you and everyone in your family.

Best remaining Prime Big Deal Days deals

    $179 $350 Save $171

    Beats knows how to bump up the beat in the best ways, and you can get a pair of its newly-upgraded Studio Pro headphones for almost half-off even after the end of Prime Day. While Beats may be an Apple subsidiary, but these work quite well with Android, too, so we don't have to worry about a sub-par experience at all.

    $237 $330 Save $93

    While Amazon's Fire HD line typically takes the spotlight for budget tablet deals on Prime Day, this is the tablet dead to beat in my mind. During Prime Day it dropped as low as $200, but at $237 it's still a deal worth snapping up.

  • Google Pixel 7a blue render, front and back

    $449 $499 Save $50

    Google launched the 7a with a higher price than its predecessors, but Prime Day brought it back down to its budget-pricing roots. For the two-day sale it dropped as low as $399, but if you missed that you can still grab it for $449 - a tasty $50 discount.

    Acer's best Chromebook is down to one of its best prices ever, and it's still there even after the end of Prime Day. Eligible for the brand new Chromebook Plus certification and packing a beefy i5, the Acer Chromebook Spin 714 is perfect for work or play.

  • Sony SRS-XB13 portable Bluetooth speaker

    $48 $60 Save $12

    One of our favorite deals from Prime Day saw this Sony speaker drop to $35, but the new $48 price is still hard to resist. The SRS-XB13 is perfectly portable, the controls are intuitive, and for its size, it sounds great for small rooms. Mine lives in my shower for my morning singalongs thanks to its long, included strap.

  • Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5

    $1500 $1800 Save $300

    You can no longer buy the brand-new Z Fold 5 at its Prime Day price of $1,400 - but its post-Prime Day price of $1,500 is almost as good. That's still a whopping $300 discount on Samsung's latest big screen foldable phone, which packs top specs and S Pen stylus support.

Phone deals

The Google Pixel 8 Pro was only announced a couple of days ago, but the free Pixel Watch 2 that it comes with during the preorder window is one of the biggest bonuses we've seen for a flagship Android phone in years. The Pixel 7a's dropped all the way down to $399 for Prime Day, but is still sitting pretty at a $50 discount on $449. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 11 and both of this year's Samsung foldable phones are still discounted, and almost as cheap as they were during the main sale days.

Tablet deals

Amazon's Fire tablets are sadly no longer available at discounted prices, but other options are. The other big name in Android tablets, Samsung, is still packing deals on the Tab S8 series and the Galaxy Tab A8, while even a couple of Apple's iPads are available at close to their Prime Day prices right now.

Earbuds deals

Sony's WF-1000XM5 earbuds arrived in late July, so I was hoping for its first big deal to come during Prime Day - its $22 discount was hardly earth-shattering, but at least it's still running. They remain the best wireless earbuds on the market, though at $140 (up a little from the Prime Day low of $120) the Pixel Buds Pro are nothing to sneeze at.

Wearables deals

Well, we were hoping for a deep discount on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6, which is the best Android smartwatch to get right now, but its deal pales on comparison to the original Pixel Watch. Granted, the Pixel Watch 2 was announced last week, but as there's no preorder bonus for the new one — nor too much of a change in the new model — your best bet here might be the original Google watch, which is still at the same discounted price now that Prime Day is over.

Chromebook deals

Chromebooks have always been a bit odd for Prime Day events because when it comes to Chrome OS deals in the U.S., Amazon runs a distant second to Best Buy, but this time, Amazon had a much better showing than expected. If you need an excellent Chromebook right now, the Acer Spin 714 is the best premium Chromebook around, and it's close to its lowest price ever.

Smart home deals

The smart home category has the inverse problem from Chromebooks: its tidal wave of smart home Prime Day deals will drown you if you're not careful. Amazon ran deals on almost every smart home device it makes, from Echo's speakers and displays to Blink's many cameras to Ring doorbells and Eero routers, but those have ended now. Luckily a smattering of Roomba, Google Nest, and other deals are still live on the site.

What are Amazon Prime Big Deal Days?

Ever since Prime Day 2020 was pushed into October, Amazon has held a sale event in the month of harvests and horror movies. This year that October event was called Amazon Prime Big Deal Days, and it took place October 10-11.

Yeah, the name is a…mouthful, but at least it’s less confusing than “Prime Early Access Sale.” That was the event’s name in 2021 and 2022, and in 2021, the event actually did focus on early access to new products, but now it’s a “normal” deal event with the usual lightning, one-day, and multi-day deals. We also saw the return of invite-only deals that replaced those blink-and-you'll-miss-it sellout deals of yesteryear.

The timeframe of this event is unique: September and October are big months for new product launches for any company wanting to sell their goods during the busiest quarter of the year (Q4, October to December). Thus, the October event offers a surprising mix of the first deals on brand-new products, clearance sales on older models, and discounts on everything else. October 10-11 put this event a week after the Google Pixel 8 launch, so the Pixel 8 series is up for preorder, and the Pixel 7 series is deeply discounted.

When is the next Prime Day?

If Amazon sticks to its usual schedule, with Prime Big Deal Days out of the way, we should next get a big Prime sale in July 2024 when Prime Day proper next rolls around.

Of course, between now and then we have the small matter of Black Friday to contend with, which will see even more sales across Amazon and other retailers ahead of the holiday rush.

What are Prime invite-only deals?

Once upon a time during Prime Days, there would be some truly jaw-dropping discounts on select items: a $99 smart TV, hundreds off of a just-released phone, $400 Pixelbooks, and so on. These sweet deals would have thousands — if not tens of thousands — waiting patiently for the exact lightning deal or deal of the day to start, and at 03:00:00:01, we'd all try to hit refresh and Add to cart. Some would succeed, but most would either end up on the waitlist or miss out entirely, all within 5-10 seconds. This was fun for bots, but for most of us, it was a huge letdown, and so Amazon has finally given us something that's a little less stressful and a little more fair.

Invite-only deals are announced weeks ahead of the actual event, and now that Prime Day's done, all invites have been distributed. Better luck next time, folks!

Do you need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber?

Yes, like all Prime-branded events, Amazon Prime Big Deal Days is exclusive to Amazon Prime subscribers. Amazon Prime’s annual membership is $139, and the monthly subscription is slightly more expensive at $15 a month ($180 over a year). College kids can get Amazon Prime Student for $69 a year or $7.50 a month ($90 over a year), and people on certain government programs (EBT, Medicaid, etc) can pay $7 a month for Prime Access after their eligibility is verified.

If you don’t want to pay for Amazon Prime, you can get a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime; you’ll just have to remember to cancel your Prime membership. Or you could keep it through the holiday shopping season for $30 and then cancel before the new year rolls around. Though really, between Prime Day, Prime Big Deal Days, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, there are enough discounts to easily pay for the membership, to say nothing of the included music library, Prime Video’s expansive catalog, and, of course, the free shipping.
