Amazon’s Prime Day starts today, Tuesday, October 13th and continues through October 14th, 2020.
I’ve done the research so you don’t have to in order to curate this list.
This post contains affiliate links. See my disclosure policy for more information.
If you want to know of deals throughout the year, sign up at the end of this blog post for my weekly email. I share my Friday Favorites, a curated Kindle book deal list each week, my newest blog posts and more.
Note: Some of these Prime Day Deals are time-sensitive and as always, prices are subject to change.
To make it even easier this year, check out all the deals in my Prime Day Section of my Amazon shop and follow me on Facebook where I’ll update throughout the day. Not all deals can be added to the Shop so you’ll want to read this post in its entirety.
First off, if you are not an Amazon Prime member or your membership has lapsed, you’ll want to rejoin to take advantage of Amazon Prime Day. Click below for a free 30-day trial.
Tips and Tricks to Getting the Best Deal on Amazon Prime Day
When you see a product you want on Amazon, click on “Watch Deal” so you don’t miss out. If you do this on your phone, you’ll get an alert when the deal has begun. I missed out on a couple of deals last year because I didn’t set this up on my mobile device.
Amazon staggers out the Amazon Prime Day items. While some of them stick around for a while, even the full 48 hours, others last for a short time. Blink and they are gone!
Instant Pots & Air Fryers
The Instant Pot
I’m a huge fan of both my Instant Pot and Air Fryer. Rather than buying two appliances to clutter up your kitchen, Instant Pot now offers this two-in-one Instant Pot/ Air Fryer combo.
The Ninja Foodi also works as pressure cooker and air fryer, but it also bakes, roasts, and broils.
For the last three years, the Instant Pot has been one of the hot deals. In fact, I purchased this exact one a few years ago.
I know many people who have missed the deal and tried to find a similar one throughout the year. Trust me, today is the day to buy it. It’s a huge savings.
Even if you miss out on the deal, this is still one of my most favorite purchases ever.
If you just want the Instant Pot, this is the one I have.
My Instant Pot now has a permanent residence on my kitchen counter. The Instant Pot makes the best hard-boiled eggs and poached eggs–you will want to check out an accessory kit. This one comes with everything you could possibly need.
For more on how much I LOVE my Instant Pot, be sure to check out the post below.
I already mentioned the combo above, but if you don’t have an air fryer, I highly recommend getting one. I use it at least five times per week, way more than my Instant Pot.
I roast all sorts of vegetables, heat up veggie burgers and chicken fingers, and pierogies. We’ve even made air-fried donuts and fried pickles. It’s so much healthier than actually frying anything.
An air fryer is basically a mini-convection oven. It takes just minutes to cook your food and you can throw the basket right into your dishwasher.
This is the air fryer I have at home.
You can even dehydrate fruits and vegetables. We make dried mango and apple chips.
These wireless noise-canceling headphones are the lowest price I’ve seen.
My air pods make me so happy. I just got them a few months ago. Even though my house has constant noise, with everyone working from home and doing schoolwork, these air pods give me a much needed escape.
These are exact ones I have and the lowest price I’ve ever seen.
Besides the Instant Pot, one of the best things I’ve purchased on Prime Day is my Kindle Paperwhite, now waterproof!
If I were buying a new Kindle right now, this is the one I would get. Not only is the Oasis waterproof but it also feels more like a book as you turn the pages. Plus, it has a larger screen and charges quicker than the Paperwhite.
And, you can read in the bath or at the pool or beach.
Before buying the Paperwhite, I had a Fire but could not read with the glare from the sun. This Kindle goes everywhere with me.
If you have an older model that you would like to trade in, Amazon does offer a trade-in program, which can save you 20% on a new Kindle E-reader (limit 1 per customer) + get an Amazon.com Gift Card equal to an appraised value of your old device. My current Kindle would get me a $25 gift card.

Kids Fire Edition
My kids both have Kindle Fires. Is it as good as an iPad? For games, no, in my opinion. But it gives your child access to tons of age-appropriate games an extensive library of age-appropriate books. I recommended buying the models with built-in extra storage. Otherwise, you’ll be purchasing a storage card in the future.
I recently bought my daughter a new Kindle because her old one was no longer compatible with Osmo (see Prime Deal at the end of this post).
I love the Kindle’s no questions asked warranty. I already used the two-year worry-free warranty and got a free replacement.

I’ve never seen a better deal on the Echo Dot. With kids home now more than ever, they need lots of reminders. My kids use their Echo Dots every day. Last night, my daughter turned on white noise to fall asleep. She has dance parties in her room. And, my son uses his as an alarm clock.
Tip: you can also use the Echo Dot as an intercom system. Just ask Alexa to “drop in.”
We also have a couple of these in our house. It’s basically a smart-plug with Alexa installed. My daughter uses the one in the bathroom to play music when she showers.
The Echo Show
The Echo Show “shows you things.” It has Alexa capabilities with a visual component. This has been one of the only Alexa devices I’ve held off on buying but at this price, I just placed it into my cart.
Ever since we bought this eero mesh router, we’ve had zero internet problems. We tried the Google Nest but this was better. If you think your internet’s been spotty lately, this should help.
This hard-wired Ring video doorbell is a best-seller on Amazon and it’s a great deal today!
This Ring is super affordable and comes with a free Echo Dot for prime members.
“Cord-Cutting”: Get Rid of Cable
If you’ve been thinking of getting rid of cable, there’s no better time than now.
We cut the cord close to five years ago and haven’t looked back.
But you need the proper equipment:
This one is voice-activated.

Health and Wellness
Orgain Protein Powder
I bought a portable blender that I’m obsessed with, basically a knock-off BlendJet. You can find lots of them on sale here today.
I’ve had resistance bands for years but now that Peloton has classes specifically designed to use band for strength training, I’m using them more than ever. Check out this blog post about other accessories you’ll want to use if you use the Peloton app, bike, or Tread.
This Theragun alternative gets great reviews. I just ordered one for myself.
This FitBit Versa is a really popular heart rate monitor and it even tracks sleep.
If you’re in the market for a new yoga mat, this one gets rave reviews and it nearly half off.
These yoga pants have a cult-following and many compare them to Lululemon.
You can find other bestsellers by CRZ here with Prime Day deals.
Under Armour is pretty much the only brand my son wears so I’m stocking up. They have clothes and shoes for everyone.
We have one of these pillows and I just snagged another one.
Magna-Tiles is one of those expensive purchases that you probably think isn’t worth the price tag. Or, you think you can get a knock-off. Trust me, this is one of best toys you can ever buy. We’ve had ours for ten years and my kids still play with them. Plus, they never go on sale.
If you’re looking for educational games for your kids, I recommend the Osmo system. You can use it with either an iPad or Kindle Fire (see above).
There are math games, drawing, geography games and more. While you use a device, it’s more for the camera and you’re using the game pieces as manipulatives. Check out Osmo here.
Our favorite is the Pizza game where animal customers order pizzas and your child has to figure out the money. You’ll need the basic set above, first.
A couple of years ago, I bought another brand of robotic vacuum to replace my Roomba and I hate it.
NixPlay WiFi Photo Frame
I bought this frame as a gift for my parents this year. Upload photos to the NixPlay app and it shows up on their picture frame. Great gift. Great price.
Revlon Hot Air Brush
I’ve been using this brush for a few years now and it’s one of the things I can’t live without. It cuts my drying time in half and gets the back of my hair tame without the frizz. You can read more about it here in this blog post.
Tile Key Finder
I love this product so much that I included it in my gift guide for hot mess moms like me. Stop wasting time looking for your keys. This bluetooth tracker makes my life so much easier.
We have these reusable bags and use them for everything: lunch, snacks, even holding face masks.
23 and Me
This DNA kit is on major sale today.
