If today you find yourself surreptitiously shopping on your work computer, or wondering how you ended up charging a discounted swing set to your “emergency” credit card, you’re not alone: It’s Amazon Prime Day.

The company launched the annual event last year to promote the Amazon Prime loyalty program, which costs $99 per year and offers members perks such as free two-day shipping. Last year was a success, raking in more new Prime members than on any other day in the website’s history, according to Amazon.

This year has been heralded by the retail giant as having twice as many deals as last year, including participation from third-party sellers. Notable discounts include a Samsung curved 55-inch 4K TV for nearly half off (all of which have already sold out), XBox One bundles, and all kinds of headphones.


In order to participate in the day’s festivities, you need to have a Prime membership, which includes a 30-day free trial upon signup.

And if you take advantage of Prime Day and decide to keep up your relationship with Amazon, here are some Boston-inspired goods available now on the website.
