Even better? Tons of the products on sale during Prime Day this year have been tried and tested by AD’s editors, like the Nectar mattress, which won our Best Mattress-in-a-Box award, and the Coway Airmega 250 Smart Air Purifier features editor Nick Mafi praised for its smart controls and quiet operations. Here’s where you can shop the best mattress Prime Day deals if a good night’s sleep is top of mind.

A rustic counter stool or two can really pull any room together. Use them as a plant stand or a place to drape extra textiles.
Best Amazon Prime Day deals: Kitchen Appliances
Home chefs and kitchenware aficionados will be happy to hear that there are lots of good deals being cooked up this year. We recommend trying out the Wolf coffee maker that our contributor Terri Williams tested and named her favorite splurge machine, as well as some of our fave coffee accessories. And don’t overlook the Bialetti Moka Express deal—contributor Lauren Joseph swears by it for a “rich, deeply flavored, concentrated cup of coffee.” If you want to grab something for your kitchen, here’s a link to all of the early Amazon Prime Day deals on coffee makers we’ve come across so far.
And if caffeine is less your thing, there is a ton of kitchen goodness left to go around. There are dozens of Instant Pot deals–whether you’re looking for an air fryer or a pressure cooker–and classic cookware from Le Creuset is also deeply discounted at the moment. But perhaps the best of the best deals in kitchen appliances come from Zojirushi and Vitamix. Scroll for more scores.
There’s no more trusted name in the rice cooker business than Zojirushi. Act now for 20% off or risk a lifetime of burnt or undercooked rice.
If you’ve ever wanted a Vitamix, today is the day! We’d highly recommend taking advantage of this $200 off price tag while you can.
This little wonder can do it all: Braise, slow cook, sear and sauté, or you could use it as a cooking pan. Plus, this handy instant dutch oven is 30% off.
Or, take it up a notch and do all that and more. This 11-in-1 Instant Pot is also an air fryer.
More great kitchen deals

Best Amazon Prime Day deals: Personal Tech
When else are you going to see deals on hands-free Apple AirPods, Bluetooth smart speakers, and OLED smart TVs, as well as home security and Amazon Alexa–assisted speakers? If you‘re looking to take your workouts to the next level, several of our favorite headphones for fitness enthusiasts–we tried and tested more than 20 models in the name of good journalism and a quest for extended battery life–are also available at some of the best prices you’ll see all year.
How often do you see Apple products on sale? Prime Day is the time to snag a pair of discounted AirPods while you can.
Terri appreciated these attractive earbuds for their “ultra-chic” profile but also their ability to last two hours on a quick charge, handle calls, music, adaptive noise cancellation, and access Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant with touch controls.
Likewise, the B&O sport model have a superior look and feel, but their performance is equally impressive–Terri noted “seven hours of outstanding sound quality off of one charge” in her list of accolades.
If you're one of the seemingly few people who haven't purchased a Kindle yet, scoring one while it's $40 off could be the move.
Best Prime Day Deals: TV & Entertainment
Go a little old school in style but high tech in performance with this Marshall wireless bluetooth speaker, currently a healthy 34% off.

Best Amazon Prime Day Deals: Smart Home & Security
Join the 21st century this Prime Day with some top of the line home tech. Several of our perennial favorites, like the Google Nest thermostat and the wi-fi enabled August Smart Lock, are marked down for the big day—no coupon required. We also highly recommend checking out the Prime Day TV deals if you’re making big ticket purchases in that category (Samsung Frames are a popular choice amongst Clever home tour subjects), or for any streaming devices.
We love a good smart home device. This smart lock from August makes it way easier to secure your home–and to share access with friends and family–without keys. It works with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit for seamless connection.
Keep your climate under control from any mobile device with this top-rated smart thermostat, loved by more than 37,000 Amazon shoppers.

You might be surprised to see how many great tech deals you can find on Prime Day for under $100–we know we were.

Or take it up a notch with these smart security cameras.
If you're looking for security and a personal assistant all in one, an Echo Show could be the deal for you. The Show will connect and manage all of your smart home gadgets and even keep you entertained with Netflix or Prime Video.
Best Amazon Prime Day deals: Vacuums
Vacuuming doesn’t have to suck (metaphorically, that is). We’re excited to see that more than a few reliable cleaners we’ve tested—like Terri’s favorite Shark robot vacuum designed for hardwood floors and the iRobot Roomba 692 that was one of the most purchased products by Clever readers last year—are on sale during the 2022 Prime Day bonanza. If you’re casually in the market for a vacuum, keep scrolling! But if you’re in dire need of a deep clean, we recommend checking out our roundup dedicated to the many Prime Day sales on vacuum cleaners running at Amazon, Target, Dyson, and more retailers as we speak. We can pretty much guarantee that there's a vacuum for every household on sale somewhere across the internet right now.
This Roomba has all the fixings of a perfect robot vacuum at a fraction of the price–and more than 22,000 Amazon customers agree. The best part? It gets better every time it does its job with advanced mapping technology.
Calling all minimalists: feast your eyes on this crisp white and stainless steel vacuum. The Dreametech T10 boasts Dyson-style cordless technology and a detachable battery, plus powerful suction, a long runtime, and an incredibly sleek design.
If you prefer an upright model with an extra boost of power, try this Shark specimen, which is bagless and formulated for pet hair.
What’s not to love about a self-emptying vacuum? This very special Roomba claims to be so intelligent that it can not only detect pet waste, but also avoid it–and thus any messes that come with it.
If you prefer an upright model, try this Shark specimen, which is bagless and formulated specifically for pet hair.
More great vacuum deals
Another one of our favorite vacuums for hardwood floors, the Shark WANDVAC System transforms from cordless stick vac to handheld dustbuster or extension tool–and it weighs less than two pounds.
This cool, sleek Shark is -14% off and has more than 12,000 positive reviews to back it up. Control it with your phone (you can even schedule cleanings while you're not around) and watch it do its thing for 120 minutes on a single charge.
Is there anything more handy than powerful little dustbuster? Pick up small spills, keep your car clean, or trail that messy family member as they leave crumbs around the house. And it's priced under $30!
When is Amazon Prime Day?
Technically, the two-day sales extravaganza started very early this morning at 12 a.m. PST and will run through 11:59 p.m. PST on Wednesday, July 13. That said, the best early Prime Day deals have been rolling in for the past few days and more will be added through out the next 48 hours. More on that below!
How does Prime Day work?
A Prime membership is required to take advantage of the deals. Luckily, it doesn’t take much to become an Amazon Prime member. They offer a 30-day free trial for newbies, and after that it’s $14.99 per month to take advantage of their blazing fast shipping, Prime Video, and all the other benefits the mega retailer offers. And a note for book on tape nerds, an Audible membership is sold separately.
Now, on to the deals. Some last the full 48 hours, others are what they call “lightning deals” and don’t last more than a few hours.
We recommend a few things:
Pace yourself. Like we said, it’s a marathon, not a sprint!
Keep track of items you’ve got your eye on. You can set up deal alerts on Amazon by adding faves to your cart and clicking “save for later.”
Cross-reference where you can find the lowest price (keep reading for more on that, too).
Are any other retailers offering discounts during Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon isn’t the only retailer hosting a sales event during the next 24 hours. It‘s like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Labor Day all rolled into one. So far, Target, Nordstrom, Sur La Table, Wayfair, Home Depot, Best Buy, West Elm, and Walmart have all announced their deal days. Last year we saw tons more brands joining the Prime Day party throughout the course of the event–and we were delighted to see smaller businesses like one of our bedding faves, Brooklinen, and the Internet famous Our Place also joining in with 15% and 20% off sitewide, respectively. And to keep things exciting, we're seeing a new brand hop in every few hours.
