Despite a rough start filled with downtime, glitches, and boycotts, Prime Day 2018 looks like it was a success for Amazon. The online retailer says it sold “more than 100 million products” during the 36-hour “day” of deals in a press release July 18.
Amazon’s own Fire TV stick and Echo Dot were the top sellers, which is no surprise given their extremely low $30 or less price points. The Instant Pot and LifeStraw (still on sale, see below) were also top sellers.
Prime Day officially ended as of 3 a.m. ET July 18, but after doing an audit of all the deals we recommended, we noticed that quite a few are still on sale for at or near their Prime Day prices. Below are the very best sales from all of our Prime Day articles, spanning many tech and entertainment categories. Up top, we’ve hand-picked deals we really love—because they’re products we’ve written about or already have experience with, so you’ll be sure to not accidentally pick a dud of a deal.
Be sure to also check out our Post Prime Day Deals from Apple, Walmart, and Other Stores.

Bose Noise-Cancelling Cans for Cheap
These wired Bose headphones are perennial best-sellers and today they’re almost a steal. Usually priced at $300, you can get them today for less than half their MSRP. If you or someone you know fly a lot, then you’ll want these headphones. They sound good, and the noise cancellation helps your ears feel just a little bit better after a trans-continental trip in coach class.

The Greatest R2-D2 Toy for a Real Bargain
Want to own the coolest Star Wars toy ever? You’ll be able to get a Sphero R2-D2 for way less than its $180 introductory price. It rolls around, lights up, and warbles in authentic astromech fashion. Artoo works with any Android or iOS phone with an feature-packed app. You’d have to be a moofmilker to turn down a deal like this one.

The Best Android Tablet for Way Cheap
When we sampled a wide array of tablets earlier this year, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 was easily the best Android tablet of the bunch. With a vivid 9.7-inch OLED screen, included S-Pen, and powerful specs, it’s a good buy at its MSRP but a great deal at $445.

A Solid Deal on a Good Fitbit
We thought the Fitbit Alta HR was pretty good when we took it out for a spin last year, but with today you’ll save 40 percent, making it even sweeter. It’s compact, has the features we’ve come to expect from a Fitbit, and manages to last a week on a single charge.

LifeStraw Personal Water Filter for $15 (was $25). Whether you’re camping, hiking, or traveling internationally, a light, small, portable, and packable water filter can save your life (or at least save you from a night or two of terrible tummy trouble). This is a great price for a water filter that doesn’t require any batteries and won’t make your water taste weird.
23andMe Health and Ancestry Genetic Service for $139 (was $300). 23andMe’s genetic reports are wildly popular.
Tile Mate and Slim Combo Pack for $45 (was $60) – Add to cart to see additional discount.
Furbo Dog Camera for $169 (Was $249) – Is your stay-at-home dog so over frozen dog food in Kongs? We loved the Furbo when we reviewed it. It’s clean, simple, easy to use, and you can also remotely toss Cheerios at your crawling infants in a pinch.
August 3rd-Gen Smart Lock for $113 (was $150). We loved August’s pill-shaped, silver, Alexa-enabled smart lock when we reviewed it last year.
Black and Decker Lithium Drill for $35 (was $99). A surprisingly powerful cordless drill for the weight, and the price.

These are four of the Best Games on Switch.
