During the two-day 2020 Prime Day sale on October 13-14, it’s a once-a-year HUGE sale at Amazon — like, 100,000 items get put on sale. It’s bigger than Black Friday for Amazon.
As the name implies, Prime Day is an exclusive two-day sale for Amazon Prime members.
Spotlight Deals are the main attraction. They include deals from the top brands with the most popular items stocked with larger than normal inventories. These deals last until they sell out. You can begin previewing some of these deals now and begin adding them to your cart and/or wishlist.
I’m a Prime member (and you have to be to get these deals) and I’ve been shopping Prime Day for a while now. You can sign up for a free trial and then if you are like me you won’t want to cancel it because free 2-day shipping and free movies they offer are so amazing. Check out more about amazon prime here.
So if you have your list for Christmas this is a great time to get some things off the list at a great price. Remember it’s October and Christmas will be here before you know it.
Some of my favorite prime day deals
Amazon Prime Day Deals for Stuff We Already Own and Love
Amazon Fire TV Stick– When we stopped using cable a few years ago it was a pain to use all of our streaming services. That’s when we got a firestick for our bedroom which made it much more convenient to watch Netflix and Hulu as well as all the great stuff Amazon offers. We loved it so much we got a second stick for our living room. They are inexpensive and make life much easier.
Kindle Fire Tablet – This is actually my daughter’s tablet but I love using it too. She is getting a laptop for school this year since she will be in 7th grade and having her own computer is becoming more necessary. So I get to have her tablet which is perfect for all the reading I love to do.
Echo Dot– Last Christmas I gave a dot to my husband and I knew he would love it but I didn’t realize how much we all would end up loving it too. It’s just so helpful for playing music, setting timers while cooking, and finding out the weather. We have three of these. It’s so helpful and we like them all around. One in the master bedroom, one in the kitchen and one in my daughter’s room.
Slow Cooker – Believe it or not, I am not the cook in our family. Isabella may only be 12 but she is already much better at cooking than I am. If I do cook though I want it to be as easy and simple as possible. That’s why I love having a slow cooker. You can make so many tasty meals with a slow cooker and the best part is that you get it ready in the morning and leave it alone and by dinner time your meal is ready to go.
Instant Pot – Although I’m a fan of and love my slow cooker I really wanted to get an Instant Pot. I’ve heard rave reviews on them for months. Then this summer while visiting my parents I got to see theirs and was impressed with how easy it was to use and how good dinner was. So I finally got one and if you don’t have one get it because it makes dinner so much easier.
Amazon Prime Day Deals for Stuff We REALLY Want
23 and me DNA Test– My husband and I have been talking about doing our ancestry DNA test for a long time now. We both really find it super interesting and want to find out more about ourselves and who we come from. I’m thinking this is going to be our Christmas gift to each other this year. If you have been wanting to do your DNA testing grab this kit while it’s on sale.
Echo Show– Since we don’t live near family and spend a lot of time video chatting with our families, I really want to get this Echo Show to be able to video call with our relatives more easily.
