Amazon's October Prime Day event is in full swing, but if you're not currently in the market for any big-ticket items, there are still plenty of tech deals to be had on the cheap. 

For starters, there's a massive sale on Amazon devices going on right now that includes Echo smart speakers, smart plugs and TV streaming sticks for all-time low prices. I'm a huge gamer, and I've been looking to build out my PlayStation 5 library since I finally managed to snag one last year, so Amazon's slew of discounts on top PS5 games have definitely caught my eye too. 

With so many deals to choose from amid a list that just keeps on growing with each passing hour, it can be hard to narrow down which discounts are in your budget. That's why I've rounded up my personal favorite sub-$50 deals below. While you're at it, be sure to check out our Amazon coupon code guide for even more ways to save this Prime Day.
