Amazon Prime Day is here, but to score the best deals, you’ve got to move fast. Many are flash-sales style that only last a few hours, and all are subject to availability and prone to selling out.
There are also plenty of “deals” on things that you probably don’t need and will regret buying at any price, as well as some “deals” featuring prices that aren’t particularly special. With these caveats in mind, we’ve waded through the off-brand cutlery, no-name sandals, and mediocre prices to gather the best early Amazon Prime Day deals you can snag.
Coleman Road Trip Propane Portable Grill LXE: Go play outside, or at least go cook outside with this compact portable gas grill from Coleman. It’s available in lots of colors, but in this case, the red one will save you lots of green — at just $100, it’s 41% off list price.
iRobot Roomba 652 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner: Have you wanted a robotic vacuum that will sweep up dust and dog hair like a mechanical Cinderella but never took the plunge? Now’s your chance to, uh, clean up. This model is now $250, 33% off the list price. Last year, Amazon sold 23,000 Roombas on Prime Day, and the vacuum robots will probably be a big seller again in 2017.
Under Armour Storm Undeniable II Duffle Bag: Talk about grab and go: This sturdy duffle with four exterior pockets and a padded strap in red, navy or black is just $19 — down from a list price of $45.
Instant Pot DUO80: This eight-quart pressure cooker is a major cult favorite for a reason. (Seriously, just read the rave reviews.) And right now, it’s just $90 — 31% off list price. That’s 10 bucks cheaper than the six-quart model!
All-Clad 700362 MC2 10-Piece Set of Silver Cookware: Prime members pay $300 on Prime Day for this high-quality set of cookware from All-Clad, normally priced at $600.
Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II: Whaaaat? Bose fans know this premium (but pricey) audio equipment rarely goes on sale — so take advantage of a rare chance to snag this popular portable Bluetooth speaker for $139 — a discount of 30%.
Game of Thrones: The Complete Seasons 1-6 on Blu-Ray: Winter is coming. And if you haven’t caught up on HBO’s wildly popular fantasy series, Game of Thrones (or missed your chance to watch it for free legally), here’s the next best thing: A sweet deal on the Blu-Ray box set — all six seasons for just $75, a 46% discount off the regular price.
SOLO Mio Sonic Face Cleanser and Massager Brush: The patent-pending device cleans and exfoliate your face with pulsations and soft silicone “bristles,” and it’s just $30 today — representing savings of as much as 73%.
SCOTTeVEST SJ Qzip Sweater: Keep more of your money in the trio of zippered pockets in this lightweight men’s sweater — marked down 50% to just $30.
DeWalt DCK240C2 20v Lithium Drill Combo Kit with SAE and Metric Wrench Sets: DeWalt’s drill-driver combo set normally costs $159. For Amazon Prime Day, it’s $142, and you get two wrench sets included as a bonus in the special bundle as well. Amazon says you’d pay $202 for all of these items separately, meaning Prime members could save over $75 on the purchase today.
