Note: Some of these Prime Day Deals are time-sensitive and as always, prices and availability are subject to change.
To make it even easier this year, check out all the deals in my Prime Day section of my Amazon Storefront and follow me on Amazon Live 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.

Amazon has partnered with me this year and I’m giving away TWO $500 Amazon Gift Cards. The instructions are in my Instagram Feed and Stories so be sure to follow me there.
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!
Curated Lists: Home, Beauty, and Health & Wellness
If you want to just jump ahead and shop my Amazon Storefront, you can find my curated lists here:
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.
For the last few 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. 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 one I have and use it so much I leave it out on my countertop.
You can even dehydrate fruits and vegetables. We make dried mango, apple chips, and kale chips.
This may be the best thing I bought all year. It mops and vacuums at the same time and has a self-cleaning mode. I have the S3 but if I had to buy it again, I would get the S5.
Personally, I love the OpenRun bone conduction headphones by Shokz. They allow you to hear the outside world without compromising sound and they’re super lightweight. And I still use my AirPods every day.
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 love the Kindle’s no questions asked warranty. I already used the two-year worry-free warranty and got a free replacement.
For more about the Kindle Fires Kids Edition, check out my post below.
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 Show every day.
My daughter even uses hers to watch Netflix’s “Stranger Things.”
Tip: you can also use the Echo Dot as an intercom system. Just ask Alexa to “drop in.”
eero Mesh Router
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!
I don’t know why we waited so long to get an outdoor camera. This 2-pack Blink camera is a great deal on Prime Day. We have one outside our front door and garage. Not only do you get notifications, you can playback videos throughout the day.
“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 more than seven 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 this one on sale 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.
We got TRX last year. This is a great price plus there’s a coupon for an extra 30-percent off.
This Echelon Smart bike is on also on sale for Prime Day.
Check out my spin bike reviews here.
I love the Peloton Guide for strength training. You can read my full review here. While you do need a Peloton membership, you don’t need Peloton equipment. And, you can stream almost all of Peloton’s classes.
Smart Measuring Tape
I bought this tape recently to keep track of my body measurements. It can be hard to see the changes in your body with just the scale. It syncs to an app on your phone.
Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer
I’ve been using the Revlon brush (this is the new one) 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 my hair tame without the frizz. You can read more about it here in this blog post.
If you’re interested in the Dyson, it’s not on Prime Day but you can learn how I saved a ton on my Dyson AirWrap.
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 almost never go on sale except on Prime Day.
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 .
A couple of years ago, I bought another brand of robotic vacuum to replace my Roomba and I hate it.
I have the Skylight calendar. The frame is a Prime Day deal.
If you’ve been wanting AirTags, now is the time to get them.
