It's best to avoid Google and Apple products — corporate rivalries simply don't incentivize Amazon to list them at a discount. "Since Amazon is increasingly a competitor to Google and Apple, you can expect Amazon isn't going to do them any favors for Prime Day," Hales says. "As a general rule, these products can be found with better deals elsewhere, like Best Buy, Target, Newegg, Walmart, etc."
Drew Kalinski, founder of the Amztut guides for entrepreneurs seeking to make a profit on Amazon, agrees. "Google and Amazon aren't the best of friends — they are major competitors," Kalinski says. "Google has a wide range of home devices such as Chromecast devices and Google Home speakers similar to those that Amazon sells. If you prefer Google devices over that of Amazon, then I suggest waiting until Black Friday or Cyber Monday."
