Prime Day is over, but these 10 exclusive deals are for Prime members only

Yahoo Entertainment 24 June, 2021 - 11:04am

Now that Prime Day is over, all the hottest deals from Amazon’s big blowout are gone. But just because Prime Day 2021 is over doesn’t mean that all of Amazon’s exclusive Prime-only deals have disappeared.

Aside from all those fantastic deals that are available to anyone and everyone, there are also some exclusive sales that only certain shoppers can take advantage of.

Considering how popular Amazon’s Prime service has become in recent years, the odds are quite good that most people reading this right now are Amazon Prime subscribers. If that happens to be the case and you are indeed a Prime member, you need to be aware that you get more than just free express shipping and access to Amazon Prime Video’s ever-expanding library of streaming movies and TV shows. Everyone out there who pays for Prime definitely needs to check out this department on Amazon, because so many people are completely unaware that it even exists! It’s a somewhat secret page called Just for Prime and it’s packed with exclusive deals that only Prime members are eligible for. And the best part is that Amazon updates it all the time with new bargains and special discounts.

People who subscribe to Prime can always find dozens of excellent and exclusive deals in this somewhat secret Amazon department. Today, we’ve selected 10 popular bargains that we’re going to highlight for you in this roundup.

The best Amazon Prime Day deals still available

CNET 24 June, 2021 - 07:32am

Amazon Prime Day 2021 is in the rear-view. On the books. Over and done. "That's a wrap, people!" But, as we predicted, some deals are still available. If you were off-planet the last couple days or waiting for that check to finally clear, you've still got a shot at some good bargains.

One thing to note: Although most Amazon-branded gear has returned to regular price, it won't stay there for long. All throughout the year, every few weeks or so, we see discounts on things like Kindle e-readers, Fire TV Sticks and Echo Show smart displays. Not Prime Day-level discounts, but discounts all the same. Bottom line: Never, ever pay full price for these devices.

There's one particularly great "deal" you can still get: If you're a Prime subscriber and don't already have an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa card, Amazon is still offering a $150 gift card when you sign up. Usually this perk is around $70, so don't pass up this bonus money.

Let's move on to the best deals still available. 

Here's a deal that was briefly available via Amazon during Prime Day; now it has migrated to Walmart. As I noted previously, it's a powerful, reasonably intelligent robo-vac, but unless you're able to situate its dock on a hard floor (as opposed to a carpeted one, as shown above), steer clear. Like a lot of these things, it has trouble parking when there's even the slightest height difference.

Read my Wyze Robot Vacuum hands-on to learn more.

This was down to $70 during Prime Day, but it's still a tremendous deal for Amazon's 8-inch smart display. Yes, there's a newer Echo Show 8 with a better camera and, yes, that model will at some point see its own big discount. But the original is still a great product, one highly recommended at this price.

This isn't the best price we've ever seen on AirPods Pro -- that was about $170. But at $190, it's an easy recommendation for anyone who's been holding out for Apple's top-rated noise-canceling true-wireless earbuds.

At its $40 retail price, the new-for-2021 Roku Express 4K Plus was already dirt cheap. But now our new favorite streamer -- which gets every streaming service you can think of in luscious 4K HDR quality, along with a ton of free ad-supported content -- is 25% less expensive.

Roku's flagship streaming box offers all the bells and whistles, including a remote finder, an Ethernet port and support for Dolby Vision 4K HDR. I remain a big fan of the remote's wired headphone jack, which is just less of a hassle than wireless audio via the Roku app (which doesn't always work well, in my experience). It has two programmable shortcut buttons, too.

Along with Xbox Cloud and Google Stadia, Amazon's Luna is one of a high-powered trio trying to make cloud-based gaming more mainstream. In the case of Luna -- which is still in beta -- you can fire up streamable sessions in browsers or dedicated apps on everything from PCs and Macs to iPhones and Android devices, as well as Amazon's Fire TV Stick 4K. Of course, you'll need to pay a monthly fee of $6 to $15, but you'll be able to game anywhere you have a superfast internet connection.

This was down to $49 during Prime Day proper, but at $56 it's still a solid buy. Read our Luna Controller hands-on.

This is a CNET Editors' Choice product, one that originally sold for $300 when it debuted in late 2019. Since then, Samsung has added an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) feature that helps this model rival the much pricier Galaxy Watch 3.

This pretty much ties the lowest price on record for Apple's venerated earbuds, a great pick for anyone who doesn't like the in-ear feel of noise-canceling earbuds (namely the AirPods Pro, which are currently on sale for $190).

And if you pay using your Amazon Prime Rewards Visa, you'll score 6% cash back, effectively dropping your price to an all-time-low $94. Read our Apple AirPods review to learn more.

Note: Pricing here has been all over the place today. First it was $100 in-cart, then sold out. Then it was back, but with an "in stock soon" disclaimer. 

Ask anyone who owns a Vitamix and they'll probably go on for as long as you'll let them. This is simply one of the best and most powerful blenders that'll whip dense and frozen ingredients into a fine puree without breaking a sweat. It's also a pleasure to operate and it's never been cheaper, down to a very tasty $189 for Prime Day -- while supplies last. 

This is the lowest price to date for this highly versatile oven, which my daughter has been using in her apartment for about three months. Her unsolicited verdict: "This is the greatest thing ever." 

The machine is not only large enough to roast a whole chicken (and it comes with a spit for that very purpose), it also has modes for baking, dehydrating, reheating and, of course, air-frying. Mighty attractive at this price.

Amazon seller JuLongYang knocks $15 off this power bank when you apply promo code AM5XNCKE at checkout. I've seen plenty of chargers similar to this one, but never priced this low.

And check out the specs: 30,000-mAh battery, solar-rechargeable, two USB Type-A ports, one USB-C 18-watt PD port and a Qi wireless charging pad. It can also recharge via USB-C, Micro-USB and even Apple Lightning. Stellar deal.

The latest Apple Watch is on sale with a $120 discount at Best Buy and Amazon on the 40mm Product Red model, and up to $70 off on other models. In addition to an always-on display and ECG, the Series 6 monitors blood-oxygen levels (though you shouldn't expect medical-grade results there). Read our Apple Watch Series 6 review.

The Watch SE is the step-down model in Apple's 2020 smartwatch line. It's similar to the 2019 Series 5, but without the always-on screen and ECG function. The Watch SE also boasts a more powerful processor and a Retina display that's 30% larger than the much older Series 3. The best deal we're seeing right now is $40 off at Amazon on some colors of the 40mm version. Read our Apple Watch SE review.

Isn't it time to start calling it "Prime Days"? Because it hasn't been just a single day for years. Once again, it's a 48-hour event that runs as follows.

These are all the deals that are currently live.

As always, anything and everything. But this is definitely the time of year to look for deep discounts on Amazon gear, including:

Granted, that stuff goes on sale all the time -- a recent Mother's Day sale revealed savings rivaling Prime Day on a lot of these devices -- but the absolute lowest prices are usually reserved for Prime Day and Black Friday.

We also typically see better-than-usual deals on things like Instant Pots, Apple AirPods, Bose headphones and Roku streamers. Make no mistake: This might be Amazon's party, but plenty of other stores and sellers will be getting in on the action.

This may be an Amazon event, but that's not stopping other stores from holding sales at the same time. Walmart announced a Deals for Days event running from June 21 to 23. Similarly, Target's Deal Days event runs from June 20 to 22. Best Buy is dropping tons of deals too.

Subscribe to our daily spotlight on the best tech deals on the web -- from phones to gadgets and more.

The best thing you can do is sign up for an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card. It's a no-annual-fee card, so there's no cost to get it. Once you're approved, you'll immediately receive a $100 Amazon gift card, and then get 5% cash back on most Amazon purchases -- including products that are on sale for Prime Day. Sometimes Amazon bumps that cash back to 10% or 15% on select items.

Right now, for example, you can also get 15% back on various Kasa smart home products10% back on the Amazfit Band 5 and more.

This year Amazon is busting out some new tricks to promote the massive event. The retail giant held a three-part concert series called The Prime Day Show on June 16, livestreaming performances from Kid Cudi, H.E.R. and Billie Eilish and backstage material. The livestreams will be available for 30 days.

Should I buy an 83-inch OLED TV?

TechRadar 24 June, 2021 - 03:34am

A look at the new 83-inch OLED TV size

You'll only find two 83-inch OLED TVs on the market so far: the LG C1 and Sony A90J. Both are high-end 4K TVs from some of the biggest TV brands in the market today, who share an ambition to cater to demand to ever-bigger, ever more impressive OLED screens. And given that sales of 65-inch TVs with OLED recently overtook their 55-inch counterparts, it's no wonder that manufacturers are looking to up their game.

It's an interesting time for OLED TV sizes. Only last year we saw the introduction of 48-inch OLED TVs, a step-down size for more compact homes, while LG Display (the sole supplier of OLED TV panels) has confirmed that 42-inch OLEDs are in the works as well. It's clear that the scale and reach of OLED is expanding, which only means there are more options than ever to help cater to your needs.

But it's the 83-inch OLED TVs that appeal to those with the space, and the budget, to get a truly cinema-sized screen into their home. But should you really buy an 83-inch OLED TV, with the cost that it entails? We'll tell you everything you need to know below.

There's the LG C1, a 2021 screen that's featured highly in our best TV and best OLED TV guides. LG Electronics (the TV maker) tends to be the first out of the gate with new OLED panel sizes, given it's close relationship with LG Display (the sole supplier of OLED TV panels). 

Just as we saw 2020's LG CX herald the arrival of the 48-inch OLED TV before the Sony A9S, Philips OLED+935 and Beovision Contour came onto the scene, so too was LG C1 the first to come in an 83-inch size.

The second 83-inch OLED TV on the market is the Sony A90J OLED – Sony's flagship 4K TV for 2021. You can now find both 83-inch OLED TVs globally too.

We're sure to see more 83-inch OLED TVs, possibly a singular Philips or B&O model in 2021, before a wider expansion in 2022. But 55-inch TVs and 65-inch TVs will likely stay the bestsellers for a while yet.

How much does an 83-inch OLED TV cost? It all depends on which television the size is featured on.

83-inch panel sizes are, so far, limited to flagship or near-flagship models. That means the baseline price is already somewhat inflated.

The 83-inch LG C1 comes with a sizeable $5,999 / £6,999 / AU$12,599 price tag – a big step up from its 77-inch model, which retails for $3,499 / £3,999 / AU$6,995.

The 83-inch Sony A90J, meanwhile, will set you back $7,999 / £6,999 (around $10,500). So LG's model will prove cheaper, though Sony's has a couple of unique perks, like its Acoustic Surface Audio+ sound system (which used the panel as a speaker) or adjustable feet for putting the screen flush on a counter or allowing space for a soundbar underneath. It's worth noting, too, that the A90J is Sony's OLED flagship, whereas LG has two more premium models above the C1 (the LG G1 and LG Z1).

You can, of course, buy quite a few 85-inch TVs with LCD or QLED panel technology, which is some cases are meaningfully cheaper – though you won't get the infinite contrast ratio or per-pixel lighting of an OLED screen.

There's no denying that a larger screen tends to offer a more impactful picture, one where you can see the benefits of modern TV technology more clearly. The advantages of 4K resolution, with all the added detail of those 8 million pixels, will be more apparent on an 83-inch OLED TV than a 40-inch TV (half the size) or even a 65-inch TV (three quarters).

There's something to be said for the sheer sense of scale, too. An 83-inch TV will give a cinema-like experience, especially when paired with a good surround sound system or Dolby Atmos speakers. It'd be far better for group gatherings or family movie nights, with high visibility (as well as OLED's great viewing angles) ensuring you're not competing for a good spot on the sofa.

In the case of both the LG C1 and Sony A90J, the picture isn't quite matched by the audio, though – the former's 40W speakers being a bit distorted on the bass, and the latter's screen-shaking audio being less precise than a good soundbar would be.

83-inch OLED TVs have only just arrived, but it seems pretty certain that OLED TV makers won't stop there.

LG Display has said it's "set to strengthen its lineup by producing 83-inch and 42-inch OLED TV displays starting this year, adding to the existing 88-inch, 77-inch, 65-inch, 55-inch, and 48-inch OLED TV displays." 

"This year," as in 2021, makes it seem that 42-inch OLED TVs are on the way before the year is out, though we've had no firm details as of yet. It may be that the 42-inch panels begin to be produced, but aren't utilized in commercial lineups until early-mid 2022.

We don't expect OLED TV sizes to get much larger, to be fair, given that 88-inch 8K OLEDs already exist, and beyond that point you're not really looking at practical sizes for the modern consumer. Additional sizes will likely attempt to target smaller budgets with 42-inch displays, though it's unlikely we'll get 32-inch TVs with OLED screens.

Paul Lee, Head of Global Research at Deloitte, tells us that “Having lots of data on a small screen is hard. Watching a really good movie on a small screen is hard. I would expect television, increasingly, in terms of drama and sports and the like, to be formatted for large screens. So I really can't see OLED TVs becoming a lot smaller.”
