We've scoured the Prime Day deals for the best prices on window air conditioners and portable A/Cs currently available (if you're not sure which one is right for you, and you know it's possible to install a window unit in your home, default to the window unit).
We'll be keeping this post updated throughout the two-day sales event, so you can quickly find the best deals on all the top-performing products.
The best air conditioner deals to shop for at Amazon
Get the Gree 10,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner at Amazon for $295.99 (Save $74)—This A/C is currently the lowest price on Amazon for a window unit and can handle rooms up to 550 sq. ft. If you're looking for a relatively cheap A/C that still has some kick to it, this Gree is a good pick.
Get the TOSOT 12,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner at Amazon for $369.99 (Save $60): Don't need smart features and just need to keep a relatively small space cool this summer? This TOSOT is good for rooms up to 550 square feet and will provide that area with some powerful cooling for its price.
Get the MIDEA MAW12R1BWT 12,000 BTU EasyCool Window Air Conditioner at Amazon for $377.45 (Save $51.55): This powerful cooling machine is also available at lower BTU ratings, but this one has the best Prime Day deal available. We love the inclusion of a washable filter, as replacing disposable ones can get expensive, fast.
Get the Sinlaku 10,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner at Amazon for $471.99 (Save $118): This hefty model from Sinlaku is the heaviest one on sale today, but helps to make up for its weight by offering a remote control and self-evaporation feature so you don't have to worry as much about any condensation leaks.

Not to be outdone, Best Buy is also hosting a sales event today, and they also have some great discounts on A/Cs.

Get the Frigidaire FFRA102WAE 10,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner at Best Buy for $324.99 (Save $25): Another powerful option, this A/C can handle rooms up to 450 sq. ft., perfect for a room that needs a bit more raw strength to keep cool.
Get the Frigidaire FFRA051WAE 5,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner at Best Buy for $167.99 (Save $25): This inexpensive Frigidaire is another great pick for a small room.
Get the Emerson Quiet Kool EARC6RSE1 6000 BTU Window Air Conditioner at Best Buy for $285.99 (Save $34)—This A/C comes with a standard array of smart features, like remote controlling it through an app. You can start cooling down your home as soon as you start your commute home from work, ensuring your home won't be sweltering by the time you arrive.
