The best Prime Day lightning deals to shop include 50% off Fire TV Sticks, 23andMe Ancestry Kits, and LifeStraws

Amazon Prime Day 2021 is officially here. This two-day, Prime member-exclusive event brings tons of discounts on products and services from companies like Apple, Sony, Samsung, and Nintendo.

In addition to the typical markdown, Amazon is also releasing several Lightning deals to tempt you. For those unfamiliar, Amazon Lightning deals are time- and stock-sensitive deals from Amazon.

During Amazon Prime Day 2021, Lightning deals are released every hour and on a timer, usually anywhere from two to six hours. The best deals end after they’ve been 100% claimed. If you manage to add one to cart, you have a limited time to check out or lose the deal.

The best discounts often run out of stock quickly. If you don’t snag one in time, there’s still hope. You can add yourself to a waitlist in case any shoppers change their minds or take too long to claim the markdown. We’ll be updating this post several times every hour with new offers.

Don’t want to sit around and wait for deals to crop up? You can get deals directly in your inbox via our newsletters, which you can sign up for by clicking here. To shop the rest of Amazon’s massive deal event, started June 21 and will end 22.
