ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping.

Amazon is sprining into spring with new chances to save big. On Thursday, the retail giant announced its first-ever Big Spring Sale event, running March 20-25. Amazon says it will slash prices and offer near-holiday priced deals on tablets, TVs, headphones, robot vacuums, home goods, and popular flagship Amazon products like the Echo smart speaker line and Fire tablets. 

Today, the Amazon Big Spring Sale officially kicked off, and right now you can save up to 30% or more on top products from brands like Apple, iRobot, Dyson, Bissell, Anker, Shark, and more.

The best Amazon Big Spring Sale deals to shop

Here's a peak at some top tech deals we've found scouring Amazon's Big Spring Sale for top savings. And yeah, we've hands-on tested all these products and recommend them, too. 

How long will Amazon's Big Spring Sale last?

Amazon is offering significant sales and discounts during its Big Spring Sale event, which runs from March 20-25, 2024, but we've already seen great savings surface last week ahead of the spring event. 

What is Amazon's Big Spring Sale?

Amazon frequently runs sales several times during the year, and we just saw tons of products discounted ahead of Valentine's Day and Presidents' Day last month. Its most popular Prime Day sales occur in October and July. 

Amazon has run spring sales in the past, and this Big Spring Sale appears to be a larger rendition of previous iterations (and given that Amazon has referred to this Big Spring Sale as the "first-ever," this new spring event may be here to stay, too). 

Essentially what you can expect from Amazon is tons of deals across almost every product category, all available for a limited time. Amazon also announced that new deals will be launching daily, so be sure to check back here for all the best deals available -- we'll be updating our content every day.
