Amazon's biggest shopping event of the year is officially underway - and this year, there are more deals than ever.

Amazon Prime Day sale began this morning and features over 2 million deals. Now through June 22, there are big discounts available on top-rated electronics, Amazon devices, home decor, kitchen gadgets, summer clothing, and much more. While supplies last, shoppers can score savings up to 70 percent off on popular brand names and products, like Apple AirPods, Nintendo Switch games, Echo Dot smart speakers, Roomba robot vacuums, and Le Creuset cookware.

This year's sale has tons of markdowns exclusively for Prime members, too. Anyone who signs up for a free 30-day trial of Prime will gain access to the complete assortment of offers, plus other perks like free two-day shipping, access to Amazon's Prime Video streaming platform, and dozens of additional benefits

And for the first time ever, the retailer is featuring "Wow Deals" on especially popular items in addition to its famous 24-hour Deals of the Day, and even shorter Lightning Deals, which typically last for just a few hours. This new type of sale comes with savings as steep as 40 percent off. Quantities are limited, so they will likely sell out quickly.

And Amazon's new Wow deals won't be the only ones to move fast. In fact, all of the markdowns featured in our curated shopping list below are expected to be highly sought-after, and they're likely to become backordered or sell out completely before the sale wraps up on June 22 at midnight PT (we will update this story as deals sell out and new ones become available). Start your deal hunting through Amazon's Prime Day hub, or browse some of the best offers below - just be sure to grab what you want ASAP.
