If you’re anything like me, you love a good deal. There are certainly times where I’ll splurge on tried and true products, but if I can save some money, I’m all for it!
That’s why I always have my eye on the latest deals in-store and online.
Until recently, Black Friday, Labor Day and Memorial Day were my go-to bargain-hunting shopping days. However, as online shopping started becoming more prominent, Amazon Prime Day rose to the top of my favorite deal days of the year.

Why I Consider Myself An Avid Amazon Shopper
If you haven’t already noticed, I adore Amazon. Why? Three words: My Prime Membership.
In my opinion, this is the most attractive part about the entire site. While everyone can browse Amazon, Prime members can access exclusive deals along with free one- or two-day shipping.
Not signed up? You can try it out FREE for 30 days. It’s a great way to test the service without making a full commitment! (don’t worry, you can cancel after the free trial)
By becoming a member, you can also explore Amazon Music. It’s basically a streaming service filled with thousands of artists, playlists and albums.
I love the streaming option because browsing is super simple and quick. In fact, there has never been an artist, playlist or album I couldn’t find on the site. Whether I’m cooking or cleaning, I always have to have music playing in the background — so Amazon Music definitely comes in handy!
What is Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day started in 2015 in honor of the site’s 20th anniversary. The one-day event eventually turned into a two-day shopping experience where buyers could save more than double on their favorite household, tech, fashion, beauty and toy items.
This year, Amazon will offer over one million deals spanning 48 hours! In addition, they are putting a stronger emphasis on supporting small businesses and allowing people to shop from new and innovative companies across the site.
They’re also offering the option to gift a Prime membership. So, if you’d like to give someone the option to take advantage of the service, you can send them a three month or 12 month plan… the perfect gift for someone who already has everything! (wonderful for college students as well)
Do I have your attention yet? If not, I listed some of my favorite deals that you should check out. I know I have my eye on them and hope you can find them helpful as well!
My Favorite Home and Kitchen Deals
If you’ve seen my Fabulous Farmhouse Finds Amazon list, you may recognize this Glass Domed Serving Plate. I was thrilled to find that it was on sale because it’s perfect for holding freshly-baked cookies or autumn-inspired treats!
The Yankee Candle Spiced Pumpkin Candle has over 7,000 reviews on Amazon and it’s currently on sale for 40% off. I love pumpkin everything during the fall (recipes, scents, you name it!) so you bet I have my eye on this one!
The Scotts Outdoor Cleaning Wipes are my go-to for patio furniture, outdoor cooking essentials and more. I even featured them in a TODAY Show article. While the savings aren’t huge, this is a cleaning product you’ll want to use time and time again!
Last holiday season, I joined Hoda and Jenna on the TODAY Show to feature three of my favorite compact appliances. One of them was the Omorc Habor Air Fryer and it’s currently on sale for under $100!
I love the Mrs. Meyers brand and even listed the hand soap as one of my favorite cleaning products on the TODAY Show! While the hand soap isn’t on sale, this dish soap three-pack is currently discounted. Plus, who doesn’t love the scent of lavender?
Did you take a look at my coffee blog? If so, you’ll know that the Nespresso Aeroccino 3 is my favorite frother. Not only does it completely upgrade my cup of coffee, but it’s super compact which makes it easy to store. Right now, Amazon has it on sale for over 30% off.
Ina Garten has always been one of my favorite chefs. Her book, Modern Comfort Food is a bestseller and it’s currently 40% off.
My Favorite Prime Day Style Deals
Aren’t these Sperry Topsider Saltwater Boots the cutest? They look perfect for fall — especially on the days when the weather is unpredictable. I also love that they’re on sale for a limited time.
The NYDJ Jeans have been a favorite of mine for years. They’re super comfortable and in my opinion, they make me look a size smaller! Um, two pairs please!
A good bag that will last for years is a closet staple. While I don’t own the Frye Melissa Shopper, it looks like it fits the profile! Depending on the color you want, you can get it for 46% off during Amazon’s Prime Day event.
Superga Sneakers have been popular for a while now. While I don’t have a pair of my own, white sneakers are versatile and super practical. I love how these ones can go with just about anything!
This is the Orolay Down Jacket and it’s one of the most popular wardrobe items on the entire site. It’s also known as the “Amazon Coat” and it currently has over 11,700 reviews!
Do you have a favorite pair of rain boots? Hunter makes some great ones that will last you for years. During the Prime Day event, you can get them for a fraction of the regular price.
My Favorite Beauty Deals
Crest 3D Whitestrips were a bestseller during last year’s Prime Day event. This year, they’re expected to fly off the site! You’ll want to snag them quick to score the deal.
89,000… that’s how many reviews this hair tool has! The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer makes it easier to style your hair because you don’t have to hold the brush and blow dryer separately. I can’t vouch for it, but you can take a look at the reviews if you’re considering making the purchase.
Vitamin C is an incredible brightening agent and nowadays, the ingredient is showing up in multiple skincare products. If you’d like to give it a try, the TruSkin Vitamin C Serum might be worth looking into.
I don’t have it yet, but the sale price and the fact that it has over 37,000 reviews is the reason I’m keeping my eye on it.
My Favorite Tech and Smart Home Deals
In May, I shared my favorite cleaning products with the TODAY Show’s shopping team. One product I reveled was the iRobot Roomba 675 Robot Vacuum which is super helpful for cleaning up all the dog hair around my home!
Okay, can you tell I like vacuums? The Dyson V7 Motorhead Cordless Stick Vacuum was another one of my recommendations. It’s lightweight and great for quick pickups. It’s also on sale for Prime Day.
It’s no secret that Apple AirPods are some of the most popular ear buds on the market. I love mine for phone calls, video calls and for listening to music while cleaning my home! If you’ve had your eye on a pair, you can score them right now for over 20% off.
I love my Blink Mini Security Camera which is why I’m so happy to see that it’s on sale for Amazon’s Prime Day event. It’s not bulky and doesn’t stand out, but it makes me feel safe and secure because I can always keep an eye on my house no matter where I am at the moment.
Don’t get me wrong. Sitting down with a good hardcover book is unbeatable. Unfortunately, it’s hard to store a bunch of books especially when your collection keeps growing! That’s where the Kindle Paperwhite E-reader can come in handy. I gave it to my mother last year for Christmas and she adores it!
You can also gift a free year of kindle unlimited so your loved one can access over 1 million e-books and unlimited listening to thousands of audiobooks.
If you’ve ever wanted to turn off your light from your bed, the Kasa Smart Plug Pack might be a good buy. They work with Amazon Alexa or Google Home — meaning you can control your home devices and electronics by voice or by scheduling through an app on your phone.
From running apps to searching things on the internet, there’s really nothing the Apple iPad Mini can’t do. Right now, you can get it for over 15% off.
Okay last vacuum… I promise! I only have the Roomba but this Shark ION one seems like a pretty good deal as well. It has a 4.6-star average on Amazon and it can work on both carpet and hardwood floors.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself of starting early on holiday gifting, I hope this list is helpful! Remember, this sale only lasts two days so take advantage of the deals before they’re gone. Have fun!
From my home to yours,
