Just when we thought the dust had settled on Amazon Prime Day (a misnomer, because it’s actually two days), an annual tradition that has become the biggest shopping occasion, the behemoth retailer has come back full force with a worthy follow-up, Amazon Prime Big Deal Day. It’s a time before the holiday season when we’re able to score the sweetest deals on the greatest in grooming, gym equipment, tech, kitchen appliances, and more. But before we queue all the discounted stuff, here’s the 411.
When Is Amazon Prime Big Deal Day?
Today! Amazon Prime Big Deal Day runs from October 10 to 11, marking these dates as the two of the best deal hunting days this side of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
How Can You Shop on Prime Big Deal Day?
Everyone who wants to enjoy the all of the deals during the annual sale must have a Prime membership, which costs $14.99 per month and includes free two-day shipping, same-day delivery on some orders, a Prime Video subscription, NFL Thursday Night Football games and Amazon Music Prime. For those who aren’t already Prime members, Amazon is offering a 30-day free trials.
What Are the Best Prime Big Deal Day Sales?
Amazon is chock full of big savings: over 24 percent off Apple AirPods, $200 off a Sony Bravia television, 50 percent off a desk treadmill, and much, much more. The products on offer is as close to innumerable as possible. This why we narrowed the selection, curating a list of can’t-miss sales that are just too good to pass up. Check them out below.
When it comes to wireless earbuds, few would argue the ubiquity of Apple Airpods. It is pretty much the standard, the go-to for many. And now that the device is on its second iteration, it may be time to upgrade the pair that you keep misplacing. Though the design of the latest version isn’t too far off earlier models (the body is a little more bulbous and the stems are shorter), the sound quality is definitely enhanced.
This is not a drill: Sony’s massive Bravia television, with a 4K ultra HD screen (the visuals doesn’t get crisper than that, folks) is now $200 off. We repeat: $200 off, which is almost 16 percent off the retail value. That’s a whole lot of savings—especially from a quality device that features advanced processing technology.
Ah, the mighty tablet, a tool used by artists, architects, and designers, along with anyone that has to conduct presentations about compound interest regularly (looking at you, business execs). Those with kids will also tout the miraculous qualities of this hand-held device and how it can occupy little ones for hours on end. Basically, if you don’t have a tablet, it’s time to get one. And if you’re in the market for the cream-of-the-crop, one that can do it all, one with a 12.4 inch sAMOLED screen, all-day battery, and ultra-wide camera, look no further than Samsung’s Galaxy tablet—now 24 percent off.
Over the past few decades, updates to iPhones and Androids have made standard point-and-shoot cameras much less widespread. But if you’re looking for unmitigated quality, if you’re looking for professional pictures, if you miss the sound of the shutter as you take a shot, Sony’s a7 III camera delivers. It features advanced image sensors and a 15-stop dynamic range, meaning that you can take images with perspective, with incredible color clarity; you can create art without filters—something that your phone can’t do as effectively.
If you’re looking to get in tip-top shape at your home gym, Bowflex’s SelectTech 840 kettlebell is exactly what you need. Not only does it take up minimal space, but it also provides six different weights that can be adjusted with the click of a button. The device allows users to tackle all muscle groups, which means you don’t need anything else to get the toned physique you desire.
You know what’s nice, especially when the temperatures dip? A nice warm towel. Zadro TLB’s warmer is the easiest way to keep your towels, robes, and pajamas warm. Simply toss them in the bucket, set the timer (which has an auto-shutoff feature), and they’ll come out nice and toasty in no time. The brand’s device heats evenly, too, so you don’t have to worry about anything needing more time in the device.
Are you a burgeoning oenophile? Then Samsung’s wine cooler could be the perfect home for your growing collection of varietals. It has five smooth-sliding shelves and enough room for up to 51 bottles. But the vital feature—especially if you like to mix it up—are the dual temperature zones that allow you to store your favorite red, white, and sparkling wines at their optimal temperature.
Need some earbuds to go with your iPhone but hate the look of the ubiquitous AirPods Pro? How about this stemless pair of in-ear headphones from Beats (which is owned by Apple). The Fit Pros have most of their more famous cousin’s features, along with better sound quality and a more secure fit thanks to the built-in ear wings. They also come in more colors, including black, gray, and purple.
We’ve all felt the frustration of sitting down to watch a movie and finding it has disappeared from our streaming service of choice. That’s why you might want to have some of your favorite films around in physical form, especially if you like obscure titles. The best all-around format for cinephiles remains Blu-ray, but you’ll need something to play them on. That’s where this excellent player from Panasonic comes in. It’s a must-have for any serious movie lover’s home theater.
Vacuuming is an important step of cleaning your home, but it’s also an activity that can take up a lot of time. That’s also true for mopping. Luckily, this robot from Samsung can handle both for you. It’s equipped with a 3-D camera and LiDAR sensors that work with the unit’s AI to create full map of your home. Simply program it and it’s ready to go. Then it vacuums and mops wherever needed. Even better, when the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ get full of dust and debris, it empties itself.
Sitting at a desk from 9 to 5, back crouched as you gaze at a laptop, can leave your body feeling fatigued and, in many cases, could cause strain to your back, neck, and wrists. Such is the usual scenario if you work stationary in a cubicle. But if you have your own office, whether it be at home or on-location, you can avoid all that by investing in a desk treadmill. Yes, it isn’t standard, but if you have the space, why not get all your work done while burning calories in the process? And there’s no better time than any to get one of the best around, Exerpeutic’s 5000 ExerWork, because it is now 50 percent off.
Portable speaker makers tend to focus on function over form. Don’t tell that to Bang & Olufsen, the Denmark-based audio brand that offers products that sound as good as they look. Indeed, you’d want to show off its devices. And this wireless bluetooth speaker, one that has an eight-hour runtime on a single charge, one that is beloved by real-deal audiophiles, is certainly no exception.
Need some headphones to really dull out the noise around you? Are you looking for something with more oomph than standard over-ears? In the market for something timeless, something that you don’t have to replace in the next year or two? Enter Beats’s Studio Pro wireless headphones, a pair that offers arguably the best sound quality around. They also come in more colors, including black, gray, and navy. All this, and they’re also over 40 percent off? Don’t sleep on this stellar deal, folks.
A worthy addition to your home gym, elliptical machines are one of the best ways to exercise. And this one from Niceday pretty much has everything you could want or need—thanks to clear monitor displays, double-resistance levels, and noise-canceling capabilities. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles as newer models, but if you’re in the market for something durable that’ll help burn those calories, make sure to get your mitts on this effective device.
Bose is a household name in consumer audio, so it shouldn’t surprise that its soundbar is equipped with everything to suit all of your home theater needs. With a variety of different connections, voice control and spatial audio, the soundbar provides all the features you’d want, all thanks to nine speakers inside the soundbar. Still, the best features are the PhaseGuide technology that guides sound throughout the home.
They won’t turn heads the way a Swiss timepiece will, but there’s no denying that smartwatches are useful. The Apple Watch can’t be beat if you’re already used to the brand’s other products, be it their smartphones or computers. The SE isn’t the latest model, but it has all the features you need—and at an even friendlier price.
Acer’s products are not to be messed with. Every single bit of its tech is deeply impressive—especially this gaming monitor, which includes a rich contrast and brightness ratio for striking colors, a 165-hertz refresh rate, and a wider curved display for an immersive experience. It also includes built-in speakers that are so powerful that there’s no need for separate audio.
Thanks to Anker, you don’t have to pick between devices to power up. The brand’s sleek and compact charging station features six—yes, six—ports: two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, and two AC outlets. It’s so powerful and effective that it can charge a MacBrook Pro in less than an hour, while simultaneously juicing the battery of your phone, headphones, and other necessary devices.
The force is strong with Netgear: The brand creates a host of exceptional products, all of them made to connect you to the ether, the World Wide Web with greater ease. Its Wi-Fi systems will boost all your devices—from a MacBook Pro and Playstation 5 to your iPhone 11 and Samsung S20—offering the utmost speed. You don’t have to wait to download or transfer files any longer. Not to be outdone, of course, is the design that looks straight out of a Star Wars flick.
While many of the important documents we need are easy to access on a computer or tablet, there’s still virtue in putting some things on paper—and for that, you need a good home printer. This one from Canon, though unable to print things in color, is a high-tech offering that you can sync wirelessly from your phone via an app. Which means there’s no fumbling around with USB drives to print out those pesky forms that need signing.
We’ve already given our spiel about the wondrous qualities of owning a tablet (see the Samsung Galaxy above), but if you’re a loyalist to the house that Steve Jobs built, nothing will surpass the iPad. And it definitely deserves fidelity. From fast wireless connectivity and all-day battery life to Liquid Retina display and touch ID, it’s no wonder why the iPad has such a stellar reputation.
There’s nothing worse than gallivanting out and about only to have your lifeline, your phone, die on you. It’s a terrible scenario—one that can be easily avoided with iWalk’s mini portable charger. It may not charge your phone fully, but it carries enough juice to keep your mind at ease. More importantly, it’s super compact, able to fit into your pocket without any fuss.
If you’re someone who wants a treadmill that’s an exercise routine in and of itself, then Schwinn’s device is a great option. It comes with 50-plus global routes that auto-adjust in real time and can reach speeds up to 10 mph. The LCD screen helps you monitor how you’re performing, and it’s equipped with 16 workout programs.
Nothing will get you around faster and more efficiently than an e-bike. And if you’re in need of a new electric two-wheeler, Hurley’s Thruster—with its 350-watt hub motor that can reach speeds up to 20 mph and streamlined look—will surely impress.
Headphone design has come a long way over the years, but over-ear models can still look a bit clunky. Not this excellent set from Sony, though. They feature a sleek, minimalist design that looks chic. They also offer stellar audio quality, whether you’re listening to your favorite playlist, absorbing your favorite podcast or even talking on the phone.
