Amazon Prime Day is right around the corner on Monday July 16 this year. And while your office may not celebrate this summer holiday, you may be wondering whether there are any good deals for your office (at least if you're a Prime member, or have been thinking about signing up).
Based on the limited information that has been released, there doesn't seem to be much in terms of big discounts on highly sought after new tech. But that's likely to change once the event starts. Below, you can read about a few items that you might be able to score a good discount on for your office. But before you read on, remember, caveat emptor! Just because it's on Prime Day, that doesn't mean you shouldn't run a Google search to see if that deal is as amazing as Amazon says it is.
Digital Storage and Necessities
External hard drives are important. Currently, there are a few good deals already on select external hard drives of various sizes. If you don't have one of these, or the ones you've been using are starting to show signs of wear, picking one up on Prime Day might be a good way to save a few bucks on essential tech that you need.
In addition to digital storage, you may want to consider checking out the prices on other digital necessities during Prime Day. Monitors, keyboards, mice, routers, and even whole computers, can often have great discounts.
Wireless Charging Phone Stand
While digital necessities at a discount are nice, so are some of the more frivolous digital toys and peripherals.
As more and more smartphones are adopting wireless charging, more and more options are opening up for phone stands that can charge your device without having to unplug it every time you want to pick it up. Though there's only one such device currently advertised on the Prime Day promo page, more may pop up when the event kicks off. And these devices are surprisingly cheaper than you might expect.
Amazon Echo Show
The Amazon Echo Show, which is basically an Alexa device with a screen, already has a steep $100 discounted listed. These devices can be used as peripherals in the office to help monitor time and answer simple questions quickly (like converting units, doing math, or just telling you weather it's going to rain).
If you're looking to buy a few throw pillows for the office couch, or maybe a coffee grinder for the breakroom, or maybe even a whole couch, or a desk, and don't have the time to make it a retailer, you might be able to find a couple worthwhile deals on Prime Day.
Protip: Amazon will have various coupon codes that Prime members may be able to use across the site. As IGN noted, on previous Prime Days, members got a code to get 20% off from Amazon Warehouse.
