Amazon promised that for its 20th birthday on Wednesday, July 15th, it would have "more deals than Black Friday." With just hours to go before the clock turns over to midnight PT, it's starting to tell us what those deals are. Biggest among them is probably the Fire TV Stick, which will be $15 off at $24.00. It's knocking $30 off the Kindle (though not, apparently, the Paperwhite) and $60 off the price of the Fire HD 7 and Fire HD 7 Kids Edition. You'll need to be a Prime member to get any of the deals.

The other deals are a little less clear and a little more like the Black Friday deals we've seen over the years, with discounts on unnamed TVs, Smart TVs, Chromebooks, and cameras — including a "50-inch 4K TV bundle" for "under $1,000" and the even more vague "Bose headphones at the lowest price ever." There are still some specifics to be found, though, including 50 percent off Harry Potter books and 70 percent off a Divergent box set.

Amazon is also running a bunch of contests: customers can upload a photo for a chance to win $10,000 in Amazon gift cards, take a quiz to win a $2,000 gift card, and win a trip to see the Transparent Season 2 premiere. Also, anybody who listens to Prime Music on Wednesday will be entered to win Amazon gift cards worth up for $25,000.
