Prime Day 2020 is October 13-14. These deals will run for two days, but they'll sell out just as fast. Here are a few that we found.
Prime Day 2020 is finally here! It's a few months late compared to previous years, and you can probably guess why Amazon chose to do that. Coronavirus or not, Prime Day is bursting with the now-infamous fire sales on items from every single category. Here are some of the early deals we spotted.
These deals are exclusively for Amazon Prime members. If you're not already a member, try it out for 30 days!
Naturally, Amazon's own products are on sale for Prime Day. Here's a classic Kindle e-reader at a huge discount - take your pick between a lower price ($59.99) for the ad-supported version or the slightly more expensive ($79.99) version without the screen saver ads. Either way, the Kindle is a versatile e-reader with access to Amazon's expansive content library. It's compact and light enough to casually hold with one hand, and this latest model even features a front light for a more comfortable experience in dark environments.
The popular Kindle Fire is also on sale, making it one of the most affordable tablets around. The Fire HD 10 features a large 10-inch screen that puts in on par with other full-sized tablets on the market. Beyond Amazon's own services, the Fire HD 10 can stream content from Netflix, Disney Plus, and Spotify. It can also be used to join Zoom video meetings - hugely useful, as that's become one of the default ways of communicating during these "new normal" times. The ad-supported version is priced at $79.99; if you'd rather do without the screen savers, the price goes to $94.99.
Hey Alexa, what time is it? Amazon's assistant can be found on just about anything with a plug these days, but the Echo is one of the most distinctive devices around. The Echo Dot is actually the most popular, thanks to its diminutive size and affordable price tag. The standard Echo Dot is priced at just $18.99, but we couldn't resist this version with a stand that looks like The Child from Disney's hit series The Mandalorian.
TV prices have been tumbling in recent years, but this is almost unheard of. Here's a 43-inch 4K Toshiba Fire TV for $209.99 - there's no way to go wrong at that price. It's pretty basic as far as TVs go, but it's got all the stuff needed to enjoy content out of the box. There's the expected Prime Video app, and it also includes Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, and YouTube. The remote also features a built-in microphone for voice commands through Alexa, and this TV even includes 3 HDMI ports if you have other devices to connect.
Noise is inevitable, and it's not always an option to simply remove yourself from the vicinity of the source. Noise-cancelling headphones are a more practical solution, and the Bose QuietComfort 35 is one of the best around. The "QuietComfort" name carries instant recognition, but they also have a reputation for being pretty spendy for a set of headphones. Prime Day 2020 means these top-notch headphones are on fire sale - at $199.00, it's easily the lowest price we've seen all year.
Stay-at-home orders have resulted in a dramatic increase of workplaces authorizing working from home, but who knew video conferencing would place such heavy strain on a home network? In many cases, the source of the bottleneck is an aging router that simply can't keep up with the demand for data. The TP-Link Archer A7 is one of our favorite routers at its regular price, and we're happy to see it on sale at $51.99 for Prime Day.
A good vacuum can make all the difference in the world when it comes to keeping your home clean, especially if you have pets. Good vacuums are also not cheap, meaning many consumers will settle for cheaper options and deal with the lower performance. Prime Day features several price drops on vacuums; at $135.99, this Bissell Pet Hair Eraser is on sale for nearly half of its original price!
Coffee makers are often taken for granted until they suddenly become unavailable, usually due to some kind of malfunction in the device. Luckily, there are several options available during Prime Day. If you're looking for a quick fix, the AmazonBasics 5-cup coffee maker is a great choice. At $12.29, it's priced low enough to be an impulse purchase. The carafe is on the small side and probably won't be ideal for sharing, but this coffee maker brews quickly and is as easy to use as it gets.
If you're serious about coffee, only the best will do. The Technivorm Moccamaster is renowned for its quality and reliability, and it also happens to be one of the best coffee brewers around. They almost never go on sale, yet here we are with a Prime Day deal that knocks the price down to $244.99. While that's still an investment, it's a pretty significant discount from what these hand-built brewers usually go for.
Braun's electric shavers are well-liked for their close shave and quality construction, but they're also priced like the premium products they are. Here's a Series 3 ProSkin shaver on sale for Prime Day; the $69.94 deal is for the version that includes the Clean and Charge station that's normally a feature reserved for pricier models in the lineup. Even if you're happy with your razor, this makes for a great holiday gift.
Flossing is a chore, but it's essential for good dental health. A more popular option is a water flosser - instead of relying on uncomfortable dental floss, these devices clean out the gaps between teeth using water pressure. Most of them are fairly pricey in comparison to standard dental floss, but Prime Day means this Waterpik flosser can be had at a more reasonable $39.93.
