October Prime Day, officially called the Amazon Early Access Sale, has stirred up online shopping activity with a second round of Prime Day deals this year, pushing rival retailers like Walmart and Dell to counter with their Walmart Rollback Sale and Dell Prime Day sale, respectively. Amazon’s event is on its last day, however, which means it’s almost over. You should start your shopping by taking a look at the wide range of offers across all the popular retailers, not just Amazon. To show you what kind of bargain prices you’ll encounter, we’ve rounded up some of the best deals that are available right now.

The third-generation Apple AirPods were released last year, but the second-generation Apple AirPods are still a worthwhile purchase from Prime Day AirPods deals, especially if you’re on a tight budget. They’re very easy to set up with your Apple devices, and they automatically connect whenever they’re in range. The wireless earbuds can last up to five hours on a single charge, and with the juice from the charging case, they can last for more than 24 hours. You can also access Apple’s Siri through the AirPods — you just have to say, “Hey Siri.”
