Amazon Prime Day 2021 is finally here. During the Prime Day sales event, Prime members can take advantage of sitewide savings in categories ranging from tech and kitchenware to clothing and skin care. Amazon created the annual event in 2015 — and after six years, it’s grown so big that several other retailers are now hosting their own counter deals, including Target, Walmart, Wayfair, Best Buy and Bed Bath & Beyond.

Prime Day is traditionally known for its limited-time Lightning Deals, which tend to run for only a couple of hours. Deals go live throughout the day and you can keep track of what will be on sale here — you can also be alerted when certain items go on sale by setting reminders.

Since these are such a considerable feature of the short shopping holiday, we compiled some of the best Lightning Deals on top-rated items happening right now during Prime Day across categories including kitchen, home and tech. To ensure the quality of these sales, we’re checking deal prices again price trackers like CamelCamelCamel, Honey and others.
