'Prime Day' isn't kidding around: the best deals from Amazon so far

Amazon's 'Prime Day' sale looks poised to offer deals that are hard to find the rest of the year, even on Black Friday. Here are some of the best bargains of the day, including a 32" LED TV for just $75.

An package awaits delivery from UPS in Palo Alto, Calif. Amazon's 'Prime Day' sale celebrates the company's 20th anniversary on Wednesday, July 15, 2015.

They said it would be better than Black Friday, and it looks like they're keeping that promise. On the eve of their 20th anniversary "Prime Day" sale, Amazon has released a sneak peek of today's deals, and it doesn't disappoint.  

The most notable items on the sneak peek list are a 40"1080p LED TV for $115, and a 32" for just $75. These kinds of prices are unheard of even on Black Friday, although our tech editor David Dritsas points out that these particular TVs are "suspiciously devoid of brand names or specs." This is a legitimate concern, but for $75, being picky is overrated. Plus, the list also features a brand name 32" smart TV for under $200, which is another deal that's likely to be snatched up VERY quickly.
