This week in Android: Prime Day deals are live! Pixel 5 giveaway continues
Buy all the things!
Amazon’s Prime Day sale is under way. The full event begins on October 13th, and lasts for 48 hours, but early deals have been popping up for a few days now. Those of us that are used to Prime Day being held in July are worried about our savings for Black Friday deals next month, but then, if we can save cash on our favorite new toys and tools now, no complaints.
Looking to save on some of the best smartphones, audio products, wearables, and more? Amazon Prime Day takes place Tuesday, October 13 and Wednesday, October 14. Head here to see all the best deals! For those that are searching for a new drone, we’ve got a nice list of drones on sale over at Drone Rush.
