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 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. And if you’re looking for a toaster oven/ air fryer, I also have this one.
This is also a great air fryer with thousands of reviews and an additional discount at checkout.
You can even dehydrate fruits and vegetables. We make dried mango, apple chips, and kale chips.
Click here to follow me on Amazon Live. I stream 2-3x per week. Stop in to say hi. I often have exclusive promo codes and giveaways. You can learn more about Amazon Live here.
This is always a sought-after item. While it’s still pricey, this is the lowest price I’ve ever seen on the Nugget Ice Maker.
Also, check out these Bose headphones. I mention them in this blog post. My husband’s had them for years and it’s one of his favorite things.
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.
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 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.”
The Echo Show
The Echo Show “shows you things.” It has Alexa capabilities with a visual component. I got one for my kids this year. They love it. My daughter even uses hers to watch Netflix’s “Stranger Things.”
Also, the other day, she was home, didn’t answer her phone, FaceTime on the iPad, but I was able to drop-in to her Show.
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 certified refurbished Ring is super affordable and comes with a free Echo Show for prime members.
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 five years ago and haven’t looked back.
But you need the proper equipment:
My house gets access to my non-cable shows through the Roku device and these Kindle Fire Sticks. Simply, stick these into your television, download the apps you need, and voila, goodbye, cable.
This one is voice-activated.
To find out more about my experience as a cord cutter, more about why we got rid of cable.
Health and Wellness
Orgain Protein Powder
My favorite protein powder is on sale. We also love the kids version.
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.
The Schwinn IC4 is one of the most popular spin bikes to use with the Peloton app. Save almost 40 percent.
This Echelon Smart bike is on also on sale for Prime Day.
Check out my spin bike reviews here.
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.
This FitBit is a really popular heart rate monitor and it even tracks sleep. This is a less expensive model. Amazon’s own version, the Halo, also measures body composition.
I love my Apple Watch. In fact, it’s so old, that it’s practically obsolete. You can get this new one on Prime Day.
If you’re in the market for a new yoga mat, I have this one. I also love my foldable yoga mat.
These yoga pants have a cult-following and are often compared to Lululemon. I have tons of clothes from CRZ including these naked feeling leggings.
Under Armour is pretty much the only brand my son wears so I’m stocking up. They have clothes and shoes for everyone.
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 and save 5%.
A couple of years ago, I bought another brand of robotic vacuum to replace my Roomba and I hate it.
If you’ve been waiting for Prime Day to get a new Roomba, check out this one or this one.
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.
If you’re looking for a digital photo frame with a built-in calendar. We have the Skylight Calendar Frame and I love it. You can read the full review here.
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.
