In case you hadn’t heard, Tuesday is Amazon Prime Day, in which deals are rolled out constantly on Amazon.com for 30 consumer-happy hours. This year, the Seattle-based company is making its first deals available on July 10 at 6 PM PST. Amazon Prime members can begin tracking deals a day earlier, as the first bargains will be announced 24 hours before they go live.
The logistics of particular Prime Day deals vary from item to item. If Amazon runs out of stock for an item for which a deal is available, you’ll be able to sign up for a wait-list in the event that more become available. Some deals are classified as Spotlight Deals, which last until the item is out of stock. Others are classified as Lightning Deals, for which time and quantities are both limited.
There will be a lot of stuff for sale — more than your average person might have time to wade through. That’s why we’re doing it for you. We’ll be poring over the deals throughout the sale and offering up our favorite items — those our editors have tested, owned, or tried at some point and love — and listing them below. We’ve teamed up with The Wirecutter as well to help sort through all the stuff and come up with items that rank highest on their site.
Check back often to see what kind of deals we’re keeping an eye on!
7/11/17: Prime Day is On! Here’s What We Love
- Instant Pot IP-DUO80 Pressure Cooker. Amazon’s “#1 best seller” and the large batch pick in Wirecutter’s pressure cooker guide, this cooker will change the way you make dinner (here’s our chef’s guide on how to use it when after you buy it). Get it here for 31 percent off on Prime Day.
- Blue Yeti Microphone. Easily one of the best prices we’ve seen for ages on Wirecutter’s pick for best USB microphone. Get it for 30 percent off here on Prime Day.
- Tramontina Professional 12-inch Pan. This slightly larger version of Sweethome’s pick for best nonstick pan is just $32 after discount (shows up in cart). Get it here for 28 percent off on Prime Day.
- Eufy RoboVac 11. The second-lowest price we’ve seen on Wirecutter’s best robot vacuum. Get it for $190 on Prime Day using code Prime008.
- Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit. Wirecutter’s pick for the best smart LED bulbs has never seen a better price. Get it here for $60 off on Prime Day.
- Anova Sous Vide Bluetooth. This used to be Wirecutter’s top pick for Sous Vide, and we concur. It was replaced by the wifi version, but they’re very similar— this one is just cheaper. In fact, this is close to the best price we’ve seen on this model. Get it here for $50 off on Prime Day.
7/10/17: Our Favorite Deals So Far
- Garmin Approach S6. With a GPS device a player can eliminate one unknown in golf’s constant game of calculus: distance to the pin. After about 36 holes wearing the watch, we found that the Garmin’s Approach S6 not only offers a high-res touchscreen color display but also the ability to manually move the pin to more precisely dial in your yardages. Get it here on Prime Day.
- Coleman DayTripper Beach Shade. We’ve found that a small shelter like the DayTripper Beach Shade is far superior to that of some wind-averse umbrella. Setup takes about 10 minutes and it can fit about three adults with room leftover. Get it here for 25-percent off on Prime Day.
- Oculus Rift: Wirecutter’s pick for the number one VR headset is pricing for $200 below its street price. Get it here for $399 on Prime Day.
- MalloMe 10-Piece Camping Cookset. Think of this as a bare-bones, 1-pound kitchen you can string up on your backpack. It’s a hell of a lot better than eating jerky for a week. Get it here for 71-percent off on Prime Day.
- Tile Mate. Wirecutter calls the Tile Mate the best Bluetooth Tracker of the bunch for finding your lost stuff.
- Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug, 20 Ounces. We’ve been big fans of this Zojirushi mug for a while, and for good reason: It’s practically bullet-proof and can keep your drink hot (or cold) for six hours, according to its rave reviews. Get it here for 38-percent off on Prime Day.
- Anker Elite Dual Port 24W USB Travel Wall Charger. Because you can never have enough wall chargers, Wirecutter says this is your chance to stock up. The Anker Elite is $10 for Prime Day, down from $13, and one of their top picks for multi-port USB chargers. Get it here for 30-percent off on Prime Day.
- Utopia Kitchen Pre Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet (12.5 inch). A good, well-seasoned skillet can be your best friend in the kitchen (trust us), and something you’ll use for years if you take care of it. And for the money, this one is a great place to start. Get it here for 46-percent off on Prime Day.
- Victorinox Swiss Army Pocket Knife. Every man should have a Swiss Army knife. Complete with 15 different tools, it’s good for everything from cracking open a beer at a BBQ with its bottle opener to opening packages with its 2.45-inch blade. Get it here on Prime Day.
- Amazon Echo. The editors at Wirecutter are in agreement with the editors here at Men’s Journal in their enthusiasm for Alexa, the smart speaker that can simplify much in life (we suggest starting with one in your kitchen). Now, you can get one for less than $100. Get it here for 38-percent off on Prime Day.
- Amazon Dot. For all the Alexa in a smaller package, try the Dot, which is going for just $35. Get it here on Prime Day.
- Bolle Mojo Snow Goggles. Bolle is known for its impressive lenses, with sublet tints and nuanced colors that are great for any activity from golfing to hiking. The Mojo snow goggles are no different and offer visual clarity like no other on snow. Get it here on Prime Day.
- GORE BIKE WEAR Men’s Power Bore-Text Active Jacket. For those blustery days of cycling, you need a jacket that is windproof and waterproof with great breathability. This one from Gore checks all the boxes. Get it here on Prime Day.
- CamelBak Podium Water Bottle, 24 oz. If you ride with any regularity, you know the value of a full water bottles — and how fast water bottles get lost or wear out. Stock up on one of our favorite spartan bottles, the CamelBack Podium, while it’s cheap. Get it here on Prime Day.
- CamelBak 2016 Fourteener 24 Hydration Pack. This is the standard-bearer hydration pack, holding three liters of water with just enough pockets and a fit that’s perfect for day hikes. Get it here on Prime Day.
7/7/17: Pre-Prime Deals
- Amazon is offering some pre-Prime Day deals on things like a discounted rate on Amazon Music Unlimited, coupons on food, and a $10 coupon if you stream a Prime Video before Prime Day.
