Featured Deal: Oster Kitchen Appliances | Save Up to 48%
Amazon Prime Day 2020 is coming soon! The annual mid-summer sales event, which delivers two days of wide-ranging, oft-amazing deals, is now officially happening in a matter of days.
When? It’s taking place on October 13-14, delivering two days of deals and likely some of the best prices you’ve seen on a whole host of goods this year. It’s exclusively for Amazon Prime members, however, so make sure you have an account (or that you’re willing to pay for one) if you want to take part.
Though we’re still a couple days out from Prime Day, there are already plenty of fantastic deals at Amazon right now. Here’s a look at some of Amazon’s top bargains today, along with an FAQ about what to expect from Prime Day 2020.
Oster Kitchen Appliances | Save Up to 48%
Your Thanksgiving plans might have a big “TBD” stamped on them right now, but if you might be hosting this year—or you just could benefit from some key kitchen upgrades, regardless—then you’ll want to check out this Oster Gold Box deal.
Today only, you can save up to 48% on a wide set of kitchen devices, including a roaster oven, a toaster oven, a buffet server warming tray, a convection oven with French doors, an air fryer, or a blender. Stock up while you can!
NBA 2K21/Madden NFL 21 | $40 Each
Sports fans: if you haven’t snagged the recently-released NBA 2K21 or Madden NFL 21 yet, you can get either simulation for $20 off the list price at Amazon right now.
NBA 2K21 is on sale on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch, but note that you won’t get a free or even discounted upgrade to the upcoming PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X edition. However, when you snag Madden on PS4 or Xbox One, you’ll get a free upgrade for PS5 or Xbox Series X.
WT2 Language Translator | $140
These might look like a lot of the AirPods-esque wireless earbuds that we see on sale, but rather than use these for music, they work with your smartphone to automatically translate 40 languages on the fly.
The WT2 Language Translator’s list includes such languages as Spanish, French, Cantonese, Russian, Japanese, and plenty more, including 93 total accents. These ‘buds are listed at $300 but usually hover around $200—yet you can get them for $140 in Amazon’s Gold Box today only.
Apple Watch SE | $270/$300
The Apple Watch SE just came out a couple weeks back, delivering a lower-cost alternative to the Series 6 without losing many key features. And while this discount isn’t massive, we’re still surprised (and delighted) to see Apple shave $10 off of the asking price on both the 40mm and 44mm sizes.
Grab this bargain while it lasts if you want an excellent watch at a more-reasonable-than-usual price. Only select styles are still on sale as of this update: the 40mm in Gold and the 44mm in Silver and Space Gray.
Beauty & Grooming Sale | Spend $30, Save $10
Now’s the perfect time to stock up on your everyday beauty and grooming needs as Amazon is providing additional discounts across hundreds of items. When you purchase at least $30 worth of products from this landing page, you’ll get an additional $10 off in your cart.
You might as well grab anything that you’ll need in the weeks and months ahead while the price is right. We’ve picked a few of the top items below, but be sure to browse through.
AmpMed Infrared Thermometer | $26
Been eager to snag one of those no-touch infrared forehead thermometers that have sprung up so widely during the pandemic? Here’s a great deal on one at Amazon, where the AmpMed thermometer is more than half-off the regular price. You can use this one on the forehead or ear, and it has a 4.4-star rating from 700+ reviews.
Amazon Echo Auto | $20
Exclusive to Prime members
Did you know that you can bring Alexa into your car? Amazon’s Echo Auto device does just that, linking into your car audio system via Bluetooth or aux cable and then using your phone’s network connection to play streaming music, play calls, and more.
It’s $20 right now for Prime members, marked down from $50, plus you can opt for a package that includes the Echo Auto with 6 months of Amazon’s Music Unlimited streaming service for the same $20 price point. Music Unlimited auto-renews at the regular price once the promo ends, however, so just be aware of what you’re signing up for.
Save $15 off Nintendo Switch Games
Nintendo’s own first-party Switch games tend not to see significant discounts since they’re constantly in demand, but right now Amazon has a few of ‘em marked down 25% off.
The brilliant Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and pretty good Super Mario Party are all $45 apiece right now rather than the usual $60.
Amcrest 1080p Webcam | $34
Use promo code LPP9CJX7 at checkout
Need a better camera for your Zoom calls as work-from-home season continues on unabated? Amcrest’s 1080p webcam is well-reviewed by Amazon customers and has a manual flip-down privacy cover, along with a built-in microphone. Save $6 by using promo code LPP9CJX7 at checkout.
Amazon Echo Show 5 | $45
Exclusive to Prime members
Amazon Prime members can snag this early Prime Day deal, with the Echo Show 5 smart screen marked down to half-price right now. It’s a small screen at 5”, as the name suggests, but it’s an ideal addition for your kitchen when you want to read recipes or play music, or in your living room as a smart home hub that you can pair with cameras, smart lights, and other gadgets.
Enacfire E60 Wireless Earbuds | $30
Clip coupon and use code PROMOTIONE60
Get a quality pair of affordable earbuds on the cheap right now with these Enacfire E60 buds. You can get them in black right now by clipping the coupon on the page and putting in the code PROMOTIONE60 at checkout.
These earbuds provide 8 hours of playback on a charge and have five additional charges available in the case, plus they’re IPX8 water-resistant. Amazon users give them a strong 4.7-star rating, too.
TCL 10 Pro | $380
Clip the coupon on the page
TCL is offering big savings on its latest Android smartphone right now. The TCL 10 Pro has a large screen at 6.47” with a teardrop notch on top, and it’s a bold AMOLED display. The quad-camera setup has a 64MP main camera, the processor packs speed, and you get meaty internal storage at 128GB. This one’s on sale for $380 when you clip the coupon.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?
It’s happening on October 13-14 this year, which is months later than we’ve seen in the past.
Typically, Amazon Prime Day has taken place in July. That obviously didn’t happen in 2020, given the chaos of the current coronavirus pandemic and the impact it has had on Amazon’s ability to consistently fulfill orders for “non-essential” items. Now that Amazon’s shipping services are back to their regular consistency, they’re gearing up for another deals barrage.
What kind of deals can we expect?
We won’t know the actual deals for Amazon Prime Day 2020 until the sales event is formally announced, but we can look back at the 2019 deals for a sense of what might be up for grabs.
In short, nearly everything. Amazon’s own gadgets are usually deeply discounted, along with TVs, laptops, earbuds, game consoles, kitchen devices, robot vacuums, clothing, gift cards, furniture, and so much more. We’re likely to see thousands of discounts across the board, some more dramatic than others, with many standout deals in the mix.
And again, it’s only for Amazon Prime subscribers, so you’ll either need to be a member or sign up for the service when Prime Day hits. In addition to exclusive bargains, you’ll also get free shipping across the site, access to loads of digital movies, TV shows, books and magazines, and various additional perks too.
What about other retailers?
While Amazon will undoubtedly command the online shopping conversation during Prime Day 2020, expect other sites to try to snipe some of that momentum by matching Prime Day prices and/or offering other special discounts. We’ll be keeping tabs on those deals while also bringing you the best Prime Day deals once the event arrives, so stay tuned.
