Amazon Prime Day 2019 is here with an event that will span two days — July 15 and 16. The time for wondering what deals you can grab to check off items on your wishlist is finally over!

With so many deals at your fingertips, it can be difficult to know which ones are really worth it. And while we can’t possibly share all the deals Amazon has planned, we can give you a helpful rundown on some of the best deals for your Amazon Prime Day pickups. Here are some of our favorite Amazon Prime Day deals — for products that are actually worth buying during this two-day extravaganza.

Instant Pots

The Instant Pot was the top-selling item in the U.S. on Amazon Prime Day 2018. After all, this handy kitchen device dramatically cuts cooking time for family favorites like roasts, chicken, soups, stews and more.

Instant Pots continue to remain extremely popular, so if you’ve been waiting to hop on the Instant Pot bandwagon, consider picking one up on Amazon Prime Day when you can save a considerable amount of cash.

One Prime Day deal we found is the Instant Pot DUO Plus 60. This programmable pressure cooker has nine primary settings and 15 smart programs built right in.

The Instant Pot DUO Plus 60 normally sells for $129.95 and is available now for $55.99. At more than 50% off the normal retail prices, this is a deal you’ll want to jump on sooner rather than later.



If you have a big-screen or smart TV on your wishlist, Amazon Prime Day has lots of deep discounts available!

One amazing Prime Day deal is this  Sony 49-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV. This model comes with everything you need. It has streaming capabilities built-in, a large screen for easy viewing, multiple HDMI ports for other devices and more. This TV normally costs $547.30 and is on sale before Prime Day for $437.84.



Tablets like Apple iPads are big sellers on Amazon Prime Days because shoppers can get some big discounts. Take a look at this Apple iPad Pro. It normally sells for $1,129 on Amazon, but during Prime Day, you can get it for only $699!  This iPad Pro has wi-fi and cellular connectivity, 512 GB of storage and front/back cameras for picture taking and Facetime calls.




Laptop Computers

It might be hard to think about, but back-to-school season is almost upon us. If the student in your family (or you) needs a new laptop computer, you should scour Amazon Prime Day for some potentially awesome deals.

The ASUS FX504 laptop is perfect for both hard work and hard gameplay. Sure, it can handle what a diligent student throws at it for research and papers. But this ASUS also has the processing speed to play some serious video games. And, doesn’t every student need some downtime?

This model which normally sells for $999 is available as an Amazon Prime Day deal for $749.



All you have to do is look around to see that tablets aren’t going anywhere. The days of the basic e-reader are gone and people of all ages love having everything from social media to streaming entertainment in the palms of their hands. If you’ve been meaning to snag one of these devices, you must jump all-in on Amazon Prime Day. This year, the Amazon Fire 7-inch 16 GB tablet is on sale for only $30 (regularly $50). At that price, you could pick up a couple of these for holiday gifts without breaking your budget.


Robotic Vacuum Cleaners

While buying a vacuum cleaner may not sound exciting, some of them certainly make cleaning the house a lot easier.

The iRobot Roomba 960 is one of the top-rated cleaners Amazon. This robot vacuum cleaner has the ability to map an entire level of a house and clean around objects and under furniture. Reviews also claim it works great on pet hair and allergens around the home. We also love that it automatically recharges and gets back to work when it’s ready.

The iRobot Roomba 960 has an Amazon Prime Day Deal price of $229.99, a savings of $145!



Redecorating a home or office? Amazon Prime Day might just be the perfect place to find that piece of furniture to bring your space together. Items like trendy standing desks are something to keep a close eye on for significant savings this year.

This Flexispot standing desk is on sale for only $208.60, which is a 40% savings over the normal $349.99 retail price.
