Now is your last chance to order from Amazon for delivery by Christmas

Hunting down the perfect last-minute Christmas gift? The countdown is on — Amazon has announced today is the last day to order from tens of millions of items with guaranteed Two-Day Delivery before Christmas. Wondering what happens if you wait until tomorrow, December 23? You’ll need to take advantage of the retailer’s One-Day Delivery service, which is only available on select, best-selling items. So best to order now to avoid disappointment.

We know what you’re thinking: Ordering this close to Christmas is going to cost nothing short of a small fortune in shipping. While that’s usually the case, Amazon is currently offering a free 30-day Amazon Prime trial that sees this charge waived on all orders placed between now (December 22) and January 22. Best of all, the subscription won’t cost you a dime so long as you cancel it before January 21. It will also omit the fee for One-Day Delivery.

To recap, that’s:

  • Order on December 22 (today!) for Two-Day Delivery by December 24 for tens of millions of items.
  • Order on December 23 (tomorrow!) for One-Day Delivery on December 24 for select, best-selling items.

Now you’re all set up with Amazon Prime, you’ll want to start looking around for something to order. Fortunately, Digital Trends is on hand to help. Keen to save you money wherever we can, we tasked our team of expert bargain hunters with the all-important mission of sifting through Amazon’s Last-Minute Deals — strainer in hand — to separate the diamonds from the coal. What we’re left with is a list of the best Christmas deals you can trust.

The best offer we found? Frankly, it’s hard to narrow it down to one. Amazon has the Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case true wireless earbuds for $139 (save $20), the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute cordless vacuum cleaner for $469 (save $230), and the 13-inch MacBook Air for $700 (save $300). After something a bit different? There’s also Instant Pot Duo Mini for $56 (save $24) and a Garmin Vivosmart HR+ fitness tracker for $75 (save $105).

Don’t like the look of any of them? Take a look at our Holiday Gift Guide 2019. Just keep in mind that considering there are now only three days to go until Christmas is here, there’s a good chance some of the items included have no sold out and won’t be available until the end of the month. But if you do find something you like the look of and it isn’t in stock online, call your local brick-and-mortar retailers. They might just surprise you.

Grab this sleek Asus gaming laptop while it has a $450 discount
Cyberpunk 2077 running on the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14.

While there are a lot of excellent gaming laptops on the market, a lot of them tend to be pretty big and bulky, which makes sense since it's always nice to have a bigger screen to game on. Unfortunately, that does mean that those who prefer a smaller laptop don't get a lot of options, but luckily, the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is small and good enough for entry-to-mid-range gaming. If you've been looking for some great 14-inch laptops for gaming, then you'll be happy to know that the Zephyrus G14 is discounted heavily at Best Buy, all the way down to $1,150 from its original $1,500.

Why you should buy the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14
Even though the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is quite small, Asus still manages to pack a respectable RTX 4060 under the hood, which is a really excellent GPU for high-refresh, high-settings 1080p gaming, and great for 2K resolutions with some compromises. Luckily, the screen runs a 2560 x 1440 resolution and can hit an impressive 165Hz refresh rate, which means that you can choose between prioritizing resolution, refresh, or graphical settings. It can also hit a whopping 500 nits of peak brightness, which essentially means you can use this everywhere, even with indirect sunlight, so it really adds to the portability.
