    You're probably familiar with the concept of buying an Instant Pot or Echo Show on Prime Day — but it's time to familiarize yourself with one of the more slept-on corners of the website during this annual holiday: deals on movies!

    Columbia Pictures

    For two days, Amazon is offering steep discounts on an impressive selection of movie rentals for Prime members. These discounts also apply to purchases, if you feel inclined to own one of these films forever (not a bad idea considering how often titles jump from platform to platform these days).

    Oh, and before you waste any more of your precious Prime time, we checked, and none of these are available with a Netflix subscription already. Happy streaming!
