It’s Prime Day! For the next 36 hours, scads and scads of things are going to be on sale on Amazon (but only if you’re a member! You can get a free 30-day trial if you’re not one yet). But if you’re not sure where to start, we’re here to help — below, a roundup of all the Strat-approved things that are now on sale, many of which are at the lowest prices they’ll be all year. Note that everything will be on sale only until supplies last, so don’t dillydally. Be sure to check our Prime Day hub for the best deals and follow us on Twitter for up-to-the-minute action. We’ll be updating this throughout the next day and a half as things continue to go on sale.

A quick and easy one if you’re thinking about cutting the cord — or if you just want to get a jump on stocking stuffers: The Amazon Fire Stick is half off.
