Good morning. Today is Amazon Prime Day, a sort of midsummer Christmas in which Amazon drastically reduces prices on thousands of great products available only to Amazon Prime members. (Not a Prime member? Sign up now, and don’t miss out!) Throughout the day, we’ll be scouring Amazon’s shelves to bring you the best Prime Day deals. Here’s a primer on Amazon Prime Day (heh), and here’s an ongoing list of all the best deals we’ve found so far. Happy hunting!
• Here’s yesterday’s gear news in case you missed out.

What’s New, Now
Samsung S8 Unlocked Phone and VR Accessories
Save 60%: Samsung’s visceral, futuristic Galaxy S8 smartphone, plus all the fixings of an introductory VR setup: wireless charging base, Gear VR headset and a high-res 360-degree camera.
Pelican Elite 30 Quart Cooler
Save 24%: Keeps food and beer and whatever else cold for up to 10 days, locks tight as a submarine hatch, and probably resists grenade blasts. If you somehow manage to break it (good luck with that), Pelican will send you a new one. Also available in 20-, 50- and 70-quart capacity.
Sony 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV
Save 25%: It’s a 2017 model, so, expect the latest and greatest technology. No promises that it won’t be outdated in a year, though. Television technology moves fast.
Anova WIFI Sous Vide
Save 35%: Sous vide cookers are being evangelized by the world’s greatest chefs. It’s about time you converted.
Playstation 4 Slim Bundle
Save 24%: One of the most popular consoles on the planet, plus an award-winning video game thrown in for good measure.
Game of Thrones: The Complete Seasons 1-6
Save 67%: Season 7 begins in six days. Are you all caught up and mentally prepared? (Probably not — no god-fearing GoT fan ever is.)
Peel Super Thin iPhone 7 and 7+ Case
From the Gear Patrol Store: Peel is the original and best ultra-thin iPhone case. Forgoing a logo, it’s designed to keep the original look of your phone while still protecting it. You’ll forget you have a case on. At just 0.35mm thin, Peel wraps seamlessly around your iPhone. A subtle lip protects the protruding camera lens.
