We got early access to Amazon’s list of Prime Day deals (#blessed) and spent hours scouring through it to find the best picks. We focused on products that are good for you and your mind, body, and spirit. So whether you’re looking for a new ‘fit to hit the gym, an easier way to keep your house clean, or gadgets for your kitchen, we’ve got you covered.

Keep in mind that there are literally so many other Prime Day deals to take advantage of (like too many to count), so keep your eye on the prize and check Amazon’s page during the event to make the most of it.

Amazon Halo

  • Discount: 30% off
  • Type of deal: Spotlight Deal
  • Deal start and end time: 6/20/21–6/22/21

Amazon’s fitness tracker gives you insight to basic health stats like steps, heart rate, sleep time, and sleep tracking. With a membership (free for the first 6 months, then less than $5 per month!), you also get access to body composition analysis and intensity-based activity tracking. And it’s also supposed to have high tech voice analysis to give you insight into how you sound to other people (Cool or creepy? Your call). A battery charge lasts 2 to 7 days based on if you have voice analysis enabled.

The best part is that a membership gives you access to a library of programs from popular brands like Lifesum, Sweat, Headspace, and Weight Watchers. But remember that this thing doesn’t have a screen like an Apple Watch — it’s def got more of the original Fitbit vibe.

Amazon Echo Show 5 and the new Amazon Echo Dot

  • Deal start and end time: 6/20/21–6/22/21

The Dot is a compact version of Alexa designed to extend Alexa throughout your home bc omnipresence is key to a smart home. Both speakers can connect to your smart home devices so you can control ’em without ever lifting a finger.

Ring Alarm 5-piece and 8-piece kits

  • Discount: 40% off
  • Type of deal: Spotlight Deal
  • Deal start and end time: 6/20/21–6/22/21

The Ring Alarm system keeps your house on lock… literally. Both kits come with everything you need to get your home security system started, including a “base station,” a keypad to arm and disarm the system, a contact sensor for windows and doors, a motion detector, and an extender to keep everything connected.

The only difference between the two kits is that the 8-piece kit comes with three extra contact sensors to cover more doors and windows to make sure you’re not getting any uninvited visitors.

These kits don’t come with cameras, but you can always add one on later once you get started with these security basics.

Garmin fenix 6S Pro

  • Discount: 29% off
  • Type of deal: Spotlight Deal
  • Deal start and end time: 6/21/21–6/22/21

Its battery also somehow lasts up to 34 days depending on what mode you use (we see you Apple Watch users… daily charging could be a thing of the past).

Take advantage of this deal because this thing ain’t cheap.

You can also use your phone’s microphone to talk to them if the treats aren’t doing the trick.

If you sign up and pay a low monthly fee for the Furbo Dog Nanny, you can also get alerts if a person is detected, if a carbon monoxide or smoke alarm is going goff, or if glass breaks. With the right placement in your home, Furbo basically acts as a home security system.

  • Discount: 38% off
  • Type of deal: Spotlight Deal
  • Deal start and end time: 6/22/21 (24 hours only)

We know what you’re thinking: “WTF is a smart scale??” Basically, it works like a regular scale but can give you extra insight into your body composition (body fat percentage, water percentage, and muscle and bone mass). This info gives you the full picture of your body as you’re trying to gain muscle mass or lose weight — after all, there’s more to getting fit than the number on the scale.

This one from Withings allows for up to eight users and connects to Apple Health, Fitbit, and Google Fit. Reviewers say it’s easy AF to use, but some don’t love that you have to give up a lot of personal info for it to work.

  • Deal start and end time: 6/22/21 (24 hours only)

Drybar is a blowout salon that launched its own line of adorable, moderately priced hair products and tools. This interchangeable styling iron comes with different attachments, so it’s really three tools in one: a traditional curling iron with a clamp, a curling wand, and a waver. Our only advice is to be careful, ’cuz once you try Drybar’s hair products, you won’t be able to stop buying them.

Tineco A11 Hero Cordless Lightweight Stick Vacuum Cleaner

You can snag the Element (the brand’s cheapest mattress option) or the Original Hybrid (the brand’s most popular mattress option). The best part is that you still get Casper’s 100-night sleep trial if you buy through Amazon, so you can return either mattress for a full refund if you don’t end up loving it.

The Original is your classic medium-firm all-foam mattress, and the Mint has a few more bells and whistles designed to help you sleep cooler. It’s also a bit softer than the Original. No matter which you choose, you get 100 nights to try it for yourself at home.

Want some pro tips on getting the most out of Prime Day? Here’s whatcha need to know:

Know the different types of deals

There are four different kinds of deals you might come across while shopping. Keeping an eye on the deal type will help you know if you need to buy right away or if you have time to spare:

  • Spotlight Deal. On non-Prime Days, these are Amazon’s “Deals of the Days” (DOTDs). They’re 24 and 48 hour-long deals on popular products on Amazon. Amazon will usually showcase these on the home page of its site.
  • Lightning Deal. These deals run for less than 24 hours and are first come, first served. There’s only a limited amount of each product, so you’ll need to get ’em while they’re hot.
  • Can’t Miss, Jaw-Dropping Deal. TBH, there’s not a lot of these. But these are basically the same thing as a Lightning Deal except on top tier brands and categories.
  • Best Deal. These are longer running discounts (more than 48 hours) and promotions on various products.

Watch deals and get notifications

Though Prime Day has an official start date of the 21st, not every single deal goes live at that time. To keep track of deals you’re interested in, you can turn on notifications in the Amazon app to get alerted when certain deals start. This is a major key 🔑 for catching those limited-time deals we mentioned. Learn how to turn them on here.

Take advantage of a $10 credit for supporting small businesses

Prime members that spend at least $10 with a small business from 6/7 to 6/20 can claim a $10 credit to use on Prime Day. That means even moooore savings (woot!) while supporting the businesses that need it most.

Get cash back if you use your Amazon Prime credit card

Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card and Amazon Prime Store Card users already get 5% back when shopping on Amazon — but during Prime Day, you get an extra 1% back. That’s a whopping 6% reward for shopping Prime Day.

If you don’t already use an Amazon credit card, you can actually apply for one before Prime Day and potentially get a decision in time to add it to your account to shop deals. You’ll even get a $50 Amazon gift card added to your account if you’re approved for the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card and a $100 Amazon gift card if you’re approved for the Amazon Prime Store Card.

Ask Alexa what’s up

If you have an Alexa, she can apparently get you early access to deals by saying, “Alexa, what are my deals?”

It’s unclear exactly what deals she’ll offer you or if they’ll be personalized based on your browsing or purchase history — but hey, it’s always worth asking.

When is Prime Day?

Officially, Amazon Prime Day starts on June 21 and runs through June 22. BUT deals on products started as early as the 13th and can run all the way until July 1 (though the vast majority of deals will start June 20–22).

What kind of deals can I expect?

There are deals on basically everything. From smart home devices, cookware, mattresses, and electronics to activewear, shoes, watches, and fitness gear (and so. much. more.). You’ll find discounts from anywhere between 20 and 90 percent off. 😱

Do I need to be a Prime member to shop Prime Day deals?

Yes. But if you’re not a current member, have no fear. Amazon obviously wants as many people shopping Prime Day as possible, so you can start a 30-day free trial to shop the deals. You’ll just need to remember to cancel it before it charges you the actual membership fee.

If you already used your free trial, it might be worth signing up for a membership (or stealing your parents’ login info… but you didn’t hear that from us 🤐).

Do any other stores have deals on Prime Day?

Prime Day is technically an Amazon event, but competing stores like Walmart, Target, and Best Buy have already announced or started similar sales for the same time frame. You can also shop these sales without a membership, so nonmembers should def check them out.
