This sale is available to Prime members only, but you can sign-up for a free 30 day trial membership here and still take advantage of the sale. And, your membership includes SO many more perks than free delivery, like Amazon Prime TV, Amazon Music, Amazon Photos (unlimited cloud based storage!), 1 year of free Grubhub delivery service, plus so much more! There's also a Prime Student option with a discounted member rate and exclusive perks for college students. Alright, let's get to the good stuff!
Clear Acrylic Frame or iPad Easel- Such a high quality piece, this makes such a beautiful gift! I use mine almost daily in my kitchen.
Cane Rattan Display Boxes- I shared the rectangular version with you several months ago when they were on a crazy sale and they haven't such a low price since. BUT, the square version is included today and the price is great! The size is generous and these are wonderful quality, would make such a great gift or styling accessory.
Dryer Vent Cleaner Vacuum Attachment- Built up dryer lint is such a fire hazard, this handy tool helps to keep it cleaned out.
Gold Bamboo Flatware- This is probably one of my favorite Amazon purchases ever. I bought 3 sets on Prime Day last year. The weight and quality are fantastic, and it goes through the dishwasher like a champ!
Ground Meat Chopper- I've had one for years and it finally broke, replaced it with this one. I consider this tool a kitchen essential!
Sheet Set- I ordered these for my nephew for Christmas and he goes on and on about how great they are!
Wall Mounted Acrylic Necklace Hanger- I added these to my closet earlier this year and they are such nice quality- super easy to install.
Veggie Chopper- I'm not big on kitchen gadgets but love, love, love my chopper. I don't know what I ever did without it! (Yes I do... I chopped 4x longer with a knife- ha!)
Sofa and Chair Covers- This link is to a page because I wanted you to see the variety available, several are included in Prime sale. I bought several of these for both of my kids' furnished dorm rooms/apartments last year (aka nasty-who-knows-what's-on-there upholstery!). I really liked this brand and they fit well! If you have a college student with provided furniture I'd say these are a must!
Desk Chair Slipcover- Another thing that made a huge difference to make a furnished dorm chair so much cuter and lighter.
Thirstystone Coaster Set- True Story... my son actually asked for these for his apartment last year. These that actually absorb moisture are my favorite.
Pom Pom Striped Pillows- I have these in two colors and think they're so cute! They've held up well outdoors, too.
Gingham Cloth Napkins- Great set of cute napkins, several styles and colors available.
Hydroflask Bottles- The kids love 'em, might as well get them on sale!
BEAUTY & FASHION
Whitening Eye Drops- We had so many super early morning wake up calls on a recent trip after short nights of sleep, and I woke often with red, tired eyes. These drops clear every bit of redness, it's almost freaky how white your eyes are using them and at least helped me look less tired than I was!
Foot Peel Mask- I've talked about these multiple times, just get it! You'll thank me later. I especially like these because I don't particularly enjoy going to get pedicures.
LED Rechargeable Travel Mirror- I've used this on multiple trips now and would hate to travel without it! It comes in handy around the house, too.
Initial Necklace Set- These little sets are fantastic, I love giving them for gifts for my daughter's friends.
Toiletry Travel Bag Organizer- perfect to stash lots of little items and pack away neatly in your bag!
Stretch Woven Belt- I purchased this a while back and it's so comfortable, love adding it to skirts or dresses this summer! It's the perfect accessory with a straw hat. I recently saw a black one too at a store in the mall for $$$ and promptly looked for a better deal, this multiple color set is such a bargain!
Quilted Crossbody Bag- I have a black one, just got the brown as well and have loved carrying it this Summer.
Striped Bag Strap- always love replacing original crossbody stripes with one of these for an extra pop! (I have and love this one too, on sale!)
Packable Straw Hat- I'm addicted to wearing straw hats this Summer... or should I say addicted to not fixing my hair- ha! With a hat and a low messy bun or pony I can have a pulled-together look in seconds!
High Waisted Athletic Shorts- My daughter loves these!
Adidas Cloudfoam Running Shoes- I have these in 2 colors and they are so comfortable, SUPER lightweight!
One Shoulder Tankini Top- I LOVE this swim top! I have this exact color and it's stunning. Wore last Summer to the beach and lots to the pool, it's so flattering and comfortable. Lots of colors to choose from and fantastic quality!
Mens Mesh Oxfords Sneakers- My husband has a couple of pairs of these and loves them for work. They're perfect for a dressy/casual look but feel like sneakers!
OUTDOOR & FAMILY FUN
Trail Camera- My husband got this for Christmas and we've had fun seeing what critters lurk in the woods behind our house! This one just records onto a card to you don't have any kind of live viewing, but we just pop the card out and look at the footage ever so often.
Ring Video Doorbell- We finally joined the video doorbell club and my husband ordered this earlier this year. The little bit of extra peace of mind and security is nice, and he especially likes being able to see everything on his phone app when we are out of town.
Ring Stick Up Security Camera- He also got this one for the back of our house... we're covered! 😂
Badminton Set- We haven't played Badminton since the kids were little but I used to love playing as a kid! We recently played again and my daughter requested we get a new set... add to cart!
Vintage Paper Dolls Puzzle- Gave this as a gift to my puzzle-loving Mother in Law, she recently finished it and it's SO cute! Perfect nostalgia design.
Mediterranean Windows Puzzle- This one is so pretty too.
Pool Float Hammock- I've been wanting to try this type of float at the pool, I like that you can use it as a set or reclining float, and that these are easy to store as well.
Pool Noodle Sling Seat- Another good float option!
Cordless Rechargeable Blower- One of our most used tools, we use it almost daily to blow off the patio, outdoor furniture, rugs, etc., not to mention yard work debris.
Waterproof Lightweight Large Beach Blanket- How fabulous is this huge beach blanket? Sand sweeps right off, this would be so handy to keep in the car for park days as well.
Inflatable Travel Neck Pillow- Just bought 3 of these (already had 1) for our recently international trip and it's a must! I never like traditional microbead or memory foam neck pillows, I can never get them adjusted to be comfortable. This inflatable one allows me to fill it as loose or firm as I like, AND it saves space and fits in a convenient little pouch when deflated.
Kindle Paperwhite- I've had one for about a year and a half and don't know how I got along without it! I still love a "real" turn the page book, but you can't beat an e-reader for trips and easy night time reading, and I love that this one is waterproof so I use it all the time at/in the pool.
Grabber Tool- My brother in law asked for this to pick up stray trash around their property when he's on the riding mower, and my Mom recently got one to help pick up things when she was having back problems. So many handy uses!
USB/Outlet Power Strip- I share these often but I love these power strip outlets with USB ports, I keep an extra in my travel bag.
Wrench Roll Up Pouch- My son asked for this at Christmas, he loves it to help keep his tools organized.
MY PRIME DAY LIST
I'm using this opportunity to stock up on some things that I've been needing, so here's what I've already purchased from the Prime Sale, and a few more things that are in my cart. I also shared a similar post for last year's Prime Day, so check that out for more of my Amazon favorites!
Hybrid Mattress- I'm pretty sure it's time for a new mattress and you bet I'm shopping the deals today. I think this one is the winner! I've ordered a mattress in a box before several times and actually love the process, trusting the 12,000+ great reviews on this one!
Foldable Sun Shade- Is anyone else having a blistering Summer like we are? My son's car shade was worn out, glad to find this one on sale.
Bath Pillow- I've been needing one for a long time and haven't come across one in stores, good deal on this one.
Disposable Food Prep Gloves- love these for handling raw meat or tossing veggies in olive oil.
Colorful Kimono- Great for Summer with a good coupon attached today!
Medallion Sandals- I bought these in Gold and Hot Pink earlier this Summer, this price is lower now and I'm going to grab the tan ones as well. All three together are still less expensive than the similar looking Tory Burch Miller sandal, score!
Collapsible Totes- My reusable shopping bags are dirty and worn out, I think these will be a great replacement!
Rechargeable Toothbrush- My dentist recommended that I switch to a rotating electric toothbrush with a pressure sensor, this one should fit the bill!
Scissors Set- Where do all the scissors go? Great little set for kitchen shears, crafts, or whatever!
Loose Jumpsuit- My daughter and I think these are so cute and have been wanting to try them, she's getting the mossy green and I'm getting the dark red.
Abalone Marble Strategy Game- I had never heard of this game before but we played it with the kids in Poland (report on that trip coming soon!) and it's so fun! It immediately went in my cart!
Alright, I hope you find some great deals on some things you need today, and maybe even a great deal on a little splurge!
