Amazon is currently running a massive Spring Sale event slashing the price of everything from Apple devices to countertop kitchen appliances. While there are several worthwhile deals in this site-wide sale, there's also a lot of mediocre discounts that aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. 

I’m a Deals Editor for Tom’s Guide, which means it’s my job to scour retailers for top-tier discounts every single day. Now I’m using that expertise to sort through Amazon’s Spring Sale and pick out a small handful of deals genuinely worth your hard-earned money. 

From serious money off Amazon's own Echo devices to a big saving on one of the best PS5 SSDs, there are definitely some noteworthy discounted products in this Amazon promotional event. While these seven picks haven’t all dropped to the lowest price ever, these are the Amazon Spring Sale deals that have me itching to click the “Buy Now” button.

How to spot the best Amazon Spring Sale deals

Spotting the best deals in a sitewide sales event such as Amazon’s Spring Sale can be surprisingly tricky. That’s because retailers use all sorts of marketing tactics to convince you that every single deal is an unmissable saving. However, there are a few things you can do to make the process a little easier. 

For starters, we strongly recommend installing CamelCamelCamel. This browser extension is an essential tool for deal hunters. It can be used to track the price history of thousands of popular products. Plus, thanks to The Camelizer plug-in, with just a single click, you can see if you’re getting a genuinely worthwhile deal or just a few pounds off a product that is regularly available at a steep discount. 

Another important tip is to refrain from impulse purchases during a sales event. Retailers like to use subtle psychological prompts to convince you to buy without a second thought but always take your time before committing your cash. Consider if the item is something you really want, or have you just been sucked in by the claim that you’re getting a bargain?

It’s also worth checking our larger Amazon Spring Sale hub, which includes discounts across a range of product categories. If you’re looking for something specific, such as a new 4K TV or wireless workout headphones, you should find what you’re looking for there and it’s a great way to get an overview of what’s on sale in just a few minutes.
