Amazon Prime Day 2018: Best deals on PC games and hardware

Deal or no deal

Featured post Amazon Prime Day 2018

This year’s Amazon Prime Day is almost at an end. At midnight tonight, Amazon’s big day o’ deals will be over for another year (or, you know, until Black Friday in November), so if you had a look at the deals yesterday and thought, ‘Hmm… I could do with a new SSD or graphics card’, then you’ve still got time to pick one up.

I know Amazon is evil etc, but just in case you do fancy picking up a bargain, I’ve put together a list of all the best of the best PC Prime Day deals right here, covering hardware and games alike. Happy hunting.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2018?

Starting at 12pm midday on July 16 until 11.59pm July 17, this year’s Amazon Prime Day will feature 36 hours of DEALS DEALS DEALS.

It should be noted you do need to be an Amazon Prime member in order to take advantage of all these shiny discounts. It’s pretty easy to sign up – click here if you’re in the UK, or here if you’re in the US – and you can always use the 30-day free trial to take advantage of the deals if you don’t fancy stumping up a full year’s membership in one go. Just remember to cancel it before you get charged an entire year’s membership.

You may, of course, wish to boycott this year’s Prime Day in order to support the Spanish Amazon workers who are on strike today protesting Amazon’s efforts to reduce workers’ rights.

Best PC Prime Day game deals:

As an Amazon Prime member, you also get access to Twitch Prime, which nets you some free games each month – a bit like PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold. You’ll need to have a Twitch account and play them through Twitch’s own client to take advantage of it, but hey, free games! In addition to the usual free games, however, this year’s Amazon Prime Day will see Twitch Prime members get a massive 21 free games this month, and you’ll find the entire schedule of when they’re arriving over here.
