Featured Deal: Apple AirPods Pro | $199
Amazon Prime Day 2020 is here! The annual mid-summer sales event, which delivers two days of wide-ranging, oft-amazing deals, is now officially happening today, and tomorrow, October 14th!
Two days of deals and likely some of the best prices you’ve seen on a whole host of goods this year. It’s exclusively for Amazon Prime members, however, so make sure you have an account (or that you’re willing to pay for one) if you want to take part.
So here’s a look at some of Amazon’s top bargains for Prime Day 2020.
Instant Pot Ultra | $50
This is a serious deal on a can’t-miss kitchen appliance. The Instant Pot Ultra is $70 off right now, letting you bring this multi-talented device into your home. Instant Pots have a devoted following thanks to their speedy pressure-cooking capabilities and compact size, and this Prime Day price is the best we’ve seen.
Wisdom Panel Essential | $70
Do you have a good boy or girl at home? If so and you don’t know its heritage, does that gnaw at you? Now’s the time to unearth the truth with the Wisdom Panel Essential DNA test, which uses a simple cheek swab to get you the details you seek. It’s marked down to $70 during Prime Day, while a more robust Wisdom Panel Premium test is discounted to $128.
Razer Blade 15 Gaming Laptop | $2,100
Save $500 off of the robust and powerful Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop, which packs a portable punch for PC gaming anywhere you please. This configuration has a 10th-gen Intel Core i7 chip along with a NVIDIA RTX 2070 Super Max-Q GPU, 16GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD. It’s certainly not cheap, but that’s a huge savings if you need a super-powered beast of a notebook.
Been holding out on adding a robo-butler to your home? Well, now’s the time: Amazon has the iRobot Roomba 692 robot vacuum on sale for $120 off the list price today, getting you an autonomous helper that’ll sweep up your space and can be controlled via smartphone app if you please.
Here’s a deal that saves you $50 and also grants you a $25 Amazon gift card to spend later. Sony’s celebrated WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling wireless headphones are on sale during Prime Day, providing an isolated soundscape for all of your favorite tunes and podcasts. The Amazon gift card is just the cherry on top here.
If you’re putting together a new PC rig or just want to max out the storage on the one you’ve already got, then this Seagate BarraCuda Pro 12TB SSD deal is a must. Right now, you’ll save $120 on this speedy and sizable solid state drive.
Toshiba 50” 4K Smart TV | $260
If you’ve been waiting to make the 4K leap, now might be the time. Amazon has this Toshiba 50” 4K Smart TV for only $260, a savings of $120 from the list price. It’s an Amazon Fire TV with all of your favorite streaming video apps pre-installed, so you need only connect to a Wi-Fi network to stream Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and more.
Expandable storage lets you boost the capacity of portable devices, including the Nintendo Switch and select smartphone and tablets, and right now Prime Day has a slick bargain on this sizable SanDisk 512GB microSD card. It’s marked down from a $200 list price, and you may never need to delete Switch games again after this meaty upgrade.
Fitbit Versa 2 | $128
People might be talking about the new Apple Watches, but if your smartwatch needs are a bit simpler, you can spend less than half the cash of an Apple Watch SE and snag this Fitbit Versa 2 bargain right now. This fitness-tracking, notification-delivering wearable is marked down from $180 during Prime Day.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0” | $100
Save $50 on a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0” tablet during Prime Day. This Android-powered tablet is modestly-powered, but it’ll handle streaming media like a champ and has enough power to run games solidly as well. The 32GB of internal memory can be expanded with up to 512GB of additional space via microSD card… (see SanDisk deal above).
Amazon Echo Show 5 | $45
Amazon Prime members can snag this Prime Day deal, with the Echo Show 5 smart screen marked down to half-price right now. It’s a small screen at 5”, as the name suggests, but it’s an ideal addition for your kitchen when you want to read recipes or play music, or in your living room as a smart home hub that you can pair with cameras, smart lights, and other gadgets.
Also, you can add a Blink Mini home security camera for just $5 more!
Phonesoap UV Sanitizer | $65
In today’s world, it’d behoove you to sanitize ALL the things, including your smartphone. Studies have shown it’s one of the germiest things in your possession, but not after you buy this Phonesoap sanitizer for $65. Just drop your phone in and let the UV lights do their job. Clip the coupon at Amazon for the 20% discount.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II | $200
Get yourself a comfortable pair of headphones that sound just as fantastic as they feel. The Bose QuietComfort 35 II have noise cancellation and voice control when paired to smartphones and tablets. They’re just $200, which is still pretty expensive, but it’s the best price you’ll find on a pair of cans consistently rated among the upper echelon.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G | $750
At $250 off, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G is not totally impossible for the average consumer to buy. This is one of the most powerful smartphones ever with a fast octa-core Snapdragon 865+ and 8GB of RAM running the show. This is an unlocked model for use on almost any wireless provider in the United States, Sprint and Verizon included. You’ll need to be a Prime member to take advantage.
Vava Dual Dash Cam | $125
If you’re hitting the road often, you should get a dash cam. This Vava unit records front and rear, has collision detection, and sees in the dark for $125, a $25 discount. Just don’t forget to clip the $10 coupon at checkout.
Apple iPad Mini | $336
If you’re on the hunt for a compact iPad right about now, this is the best deal we’ve seen on the current-generation iPad Mini. It’s $63 off the list price right now, nabbing you a 7.9” Retina display, a capable A12 Bionic processor, and 64GB of internal storage.
Apple AirPods Pro | $199
Save $50 right now on Apple’s top-of-the-line wireless buds, which feature a refreshed design with rubber tips along with noise canceling, improved audio quality, and a wireless charging case. The AirPods Pro are pricier than the normal AirPods and also more expensive than some competing options, but people love ‘em. Join the party while they’re discounted.
Apple Watch SE | $270/$300
The Apple Watch SE just came out a couple weeks back, delivering a lower-cost alternative to the Series 6 without losing many key features. And while this discount isn’t massive, we’re still surprised (and delighted) to see Apple shave $10 off of the asking price on both the 40mm and 44mm sizes.
Grab this bargain while it lasts if you want an excellent watch at a more-reasonable-than-usual price. Only select styles are still on sale as of this update: the 40mm in Gold and the 44mm in Silver and Space Gray.
Amazon Echo Auto | $20
Did you know that you can bring Alexa into your car? Amazon’s Echo Auto device does just that, linking into your car audio system via Bluetooth or aux cable and then using your phone’s network connection to play streaming music, play calls, and more.
It’s $20 right now for Prime members, marked down from $50, plus you can opt for a package that includes the Echo Auto with 6 months of Amazon’s Music Unlimited streaming service for the same $20 price point. Music Unlimited auto-renews at the regular price once the promo ends, however, so just be aware of what you’re signing up for.
