On July 12 and 13, Amazon will kick off their annual shopping-and-saving extravaganza. Days like this are usually about scoring unbeatable deals, and we’d be lying if we didn’t admit that part of the fun is buying things you may not really need, but that sure would be fun to have. Keep in mind, you have to be a Prime member (or you can try Amazon Prime’s 30-day free trial during the sale!) to take advantage of all the deals. Here are eight things we’ll be adding to our baskets.
A (VERY) SMART VACUUM CLEANER
This high-tech, heavy-duty robot vacuum is arguably smarter than we’ll ever be. It uses a built-in navigation system to create cleaning maps in real time and can be controlled by app and Alexa, allowing you to adjust cleaning modes or manually change movements. It can cover carpet, tile, and hardwood floors, and you can even create keep-out zones in your home so it knows where to avoid.
Any pet owner will be thrilled to take care of their fur ball from afar. This dual pet feeder and water bowl allows you to regulate their feeding while running errands or at work. It has a non-slip mat for security and uses gravity for consistently full bowls.
If you haven’t yet jumped on the air fryer bandwagon, Prime Day is the perfect time. This 5.7-quart turbo fryer, which comes with a grill plate and skewer, is a healthy alternative to your typical fried foods—allowing you to cook everything from frozen veggies to chicken fingers and pizza. A flat basket design means you can get more food in the fryer than most models on the market, while still remaining relatively compact. Added bonus: It’s dishwasher safe.
Perfect for tailgating and backyard parties alike, this canopy from Coleman is a must have for keeping guests comfortable and out of the sun. With a UPF 50+ fabric, the canopy safely protects from the sun’s overhead rays. The frame expands to provide 12 feet by 12 feet of coverage, with stakes provided for stabilization, and the legs collapse with ease for quick folding and storage.
If you’re a fan of riding leisurely with the wind in your hair, this electric scooter from Segway is made for you! It accelerates up to 12.4 mph and can travel up to 13.7, but it is foldable and compact enough to fit in a car. It’s designed for casual use and if you really want to relax while you ride, you can get the option that has a seat!
Charcoal is known for its purifying properties and this face wash from L’Oreal is made to address common issues such as oily skin, shininess, dirt, sticky touch, dullness and clogged pores, making it a solid option for all skin types.
Everyone in the family should get a slice of the Amazon Prime Day pie, which is why we’re buying this volleyball net. Although the poles aren’t included, this heavy-duty net can withstand all types of weather and wear so the family can play game after game.
The Jackery Explorer 240 portable power station is great for road trips, camping, or a few hours poolside. You charge it using a wall or car outlet and it has varying ports for different devices. Despite all its power, it’s lightweight, weighing in at a little over 6 pounds.
