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, Kohl’s, Best Buy and Bed Bath & Beyond — as well as smaller brands like Our Place — as experts explained in our in-depth look at the history and impact of Prime Day.

To help you make the most of the fleeting shopping holiday, we compiled some of the best Prime Day deals live right now on Amazon, plus highlighted notable deals from counter sales happening at other retailers.
