Amazon Prime Day 2020 is here (tomorrow)! ‘Tis the season to find the best deals on TVs, electronics, toys, household items, car accessories, clothing, and well, everything really. And since there are too many deals to keep track of, we’ll be doing it for you. 

This post will be updated every half-hour throughout both days of Prime Day (October 13-14). Bookmark this page so you don’t miss out on the best Prime Day 2020 deals for you, your household, and your entire Holiday shopping list. Keep in mind, many of these deals are very limited time, so prices may change.


Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) Smart speaker – $18.99 (62% off)

Nowadays, many people have smart speakers from various manufacturers all over their homes, and for good reason, they’re inconspicuous, sound surprisingly good, and are fairly cheap. Even though they’re already super affordable, this deal on the third generation Amazon Echo Dot is the lowest price we’ve seen yet. For less than 20 bucks you can turn your entire house into a smart device, thanks to Alexa, which has the ability to turn on your TV, turn on a smart faucet, operate your oven, and a whole lot more. Short of the flying cars, we truly are starting to live in the future The Jetsons promised us.

Apple MacBook Air (13-inch, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD Storage) – $899.99 (10% off)

Apple products rarely go on sale, so this is a nice find if you’re in the market for a new laptop. This MacBook Air has a 13.3-inch retina display and is available with 256GB (the sale price is for this version) or 512GB of SSD storage. 

Bose Solo 5 TV Soundbar Sound System with Universal Remote Control – $149.99 (49% off)

Your TV should sound as good as it looks. If you’ve already found that TV deal you’ve been looking for, you should think about upgrading the audio quality of your home entertainment setup. You don’t need a 7-speaker sound system to hear a difference either, a sound bar will give you noticeably improved audio quality over just your TV’s built-in speakers and from just one component. This one from Bose is on sale right now for Prime Day. It has one connection to your TV as well as Bluetooth connectivity so you can wirelessly stream audio from your smartphone.

Apple AirPods with Charging Case (Wired) – $114.99 (28% off)

Apple AirPods are pretty much the essential wireless ear buds to have if you want to be one of the cool kids. Not only do they look cool, though, they’re actually a super convenient way to quickly and conveniently pop in headphones whenever you need. If you’re an Apple user, you know that it’s often pretty rare for the company to participate in sales, which is why we’re excited to share with you that for Prime Day, Apple has discounted their AirPods w/ rechargeable case by 28%. Keep in mind that while the ear buds are of course completely wireless, you’ll still need to plug in the charging case for when you want to charge them. But for such a steep discount over the AirPods Pro (which also happen to be $50 cheaper right now, if you’re a big spender), we’d say that’s an easy concession to make. 

Sony Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headphones – $88 (56% off)

We know there are a lot of noise cancelling headphones on this list, but it’s for good reason. They are the single easiest item you can buy to make any traveling experience better. These things improve everything from flights, to road trips, to bus rides, and almost every model of notable noise cancelling headphones out there is on sale today. These Sony’s are usually $200 to pick up, and even at that price we’d say they’re worth it. At the current price of $88? They’re a no-brainer. Be right back, we’re ordering some for ourselves. 

Razer BlackWidow Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard – $89.99 (47% off – the lowest price we’ve ever seen it)

If you’re a gamer, you already know about Razer keyboards. If you’re just now delving into the pastime, this is a great keyboard to start with, and this is the lowest price we’ve ever seen it at. It features fully programmable macros and Razer Hypershift allows for all keys and keypress combos to be remapped to execute complex commands. Also, if you just want a cool, glowy keyboard to type on like normal, it’ll do that too. Check it out here at nearly 50% off.

Nintendo Switch – Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition Switch – $299.99 (Not discounted – just a popular item)

Animal Crossing New Horizons is undoubtedly one of the hottest games out right now and it’s been a while since any of us here have seen a Nintendo Switch for MSRP, so while this console isn’t technically “on sale” it’s totally worth taking a look. Just be warned, while the console certainly looks the part, it annoyingly doesn’t come with the game itself, so you’ll have to shell out some extra coin for that. In our opinion? Still worth it. 

1 Year of Nintendo Switch online + SanDisk 128GB MicroSD card for your Switch – $39.99 ($30 off)

The Nintendo Switch is great, but it’s not without faults. One of those faults is that the storage space isn’t quite as robust as it probably should be. Luckily, though, you can supplement that with a regular old MicroSD card. Thanks to this deal, you can pick up a 128GB MicroSD card as well as a 12 month subscription to Nintendo’s online service, which includes over 60 free NES and SNES games as part of the subscription, for the super low price of just $39.99. With this bundle, you’re essentially getting the online subscription for about 5 bucks. It’s a stellar deal if you own a Switch and don’t already pay for the subscription. 

Sony X900H 65 Inch TV: 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV with HDR, Game Mode for Gaming – $998.00 (29% off)

Looking for a solid 4K TV and don’t want to pay over a grand? Do you want that TV to come with all the bells and whistles like 4K gaming at 120 fps, Alexa compatibility, and a gaming mode specifically designed to work with a Playstation? Well, look no further. This Sony X900H screen has all of that and more, and it’s currently available for 29% off, bringing the total price down to $998.00.

Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones – $199.00 (43% off)

There are a few items for us that are must-haves when traveling and noise cancelling headphones are one of them. When you fly over 100k miles a year, being able to relax on a plane is paramount, and these Bose headphones are some of the best out there. They cut out the droning of jet engines like you would not believe and can help you get some shut eye on red-eye and transatlantic flights. The only thing that has prevented us from purchasing them is the $350 price tag, but for Prime Day they are an astonishing 43% off, bring the price down to only $199.00. 

Instant Pot Duo Nova Pressure Cooker 7 in 1, 10 Qt – $99.99 (33% off)

There are several sizes to choose from (ranging from 3 quarts to 10) so if you don’t need one this big, there are options. The 3-qt is only $49.99. That’s over 58% off! Great for rice and your favorite crockpot meals. Autoblog’s Multimedia Producer Erik Maier has this one and loves it. 

LG Alexa Built-in Nano 8 Series 55″ 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV – $499.99 ($399.01 off)

Let’s be honest. There’s one reason you’re up at 6am reading a post about Prime Day on Autoblog. You wanted a new TV. Well, here’s the first of many, and it’s 44% off. Let’s see if it checks all of the boxes. Known brand? Check. Ultra HD? Check. Smart TV? It has Alexa built in, so yes, check. The only thing that could keep you from wanting to snag this deal is if you don’t want your TV listening in on your conversations, which, in that case you better get rid of your phone and basically every other appliance you own too.

All-new Fire HD8 Kids Edition tablet – $79.99 (43% off)

This tablet would make a great gift for a family with children. It comes with a kid-proof case and built-in stand and is protected by a 2-year worry-free guarantee, which means if it breaks you can return it and Amazon will replace it for free. Stream over wifi or view downloaded content on-the-go with 32 GB of internal storage and up to 12 hours of battery for reading, browsing the web, watching videos, and listening to music. You can also add a microSD card for up to 1 TB of additional storage. Included with this purchase is 1 year of Amazon Kids+, which gives your kids access to over 20,000 apps, games, books, videos, audiobooks, and educational content from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Disney, and more. The subscription will then automatically renew every month starting at just $2.99 per month plus applicable tax but you can cancel at any time by visiting the Amazon Parent Dashboard or contacting Customer Service. Amazon Kids parental controls allow you to set educational goals, create time limits, and filter content.

DJI Mavic Mini Combo – $399 (20% off)

$100 off this DJI drone bundle is enticing. Our Manager of Production Eddie Sabatini owns and loves this drone. He flies it nearly everyday outside and sometimes, against his better judgment, inside. He even crashed it into his house and it still flies great after swapping out the nicked up propellers. 

At just 250 grams the Mavic Mini is almost as light as the average smartphone but the best part about its compact size is that in the United States and Canada you can fly this camera drone without the need to register it with the government. The bundle comes with the drone, the DJI Mavic Mini remote controller, 3 intelligent flight batteries (this is maybe the best part of the bundle as the Mavic mini doesn’t have the longest flight time but with 3 batteries you’ll be able to stay out shooting longer) 3 pairs of spare propellers, 2 micro USB cables, a gimbal protector, RC cable (Micro USB connector) RC Cable (USB-C connector) RC Cable (Lightning connector), a pair of spare control sticks, 18 spare screws, a screwdriver, 360° propeller guard (use this propeller guard IF you try flying indoors), a two-way charging hub, a DJI 18W USB charger, and  carrying bag.

Kindle – $59.99 (33% off)

The “Prime Exclusive Deal” for the Kindle e-reader is a sweet one. It holds thousands of books. A single charge of the battery lasts weeks. And with Audible, you can easily switch between reading and listening. The $59.99 sale price is for the ad-supported Kindle, so we recommend spending the extra $20 to get the version without ads. Multimedia Producer Erik Maier had this to say about his own Kindle: “I can not recommend that thing highly enough. I use my Kindle all the time and love it!”

Garmin GPS Units and Smartwatches – Up to 48% off

There are a ton of great rivalries in the world. Lakers vs Celtics, Yankees vs Red Sox, 1990s Red Wings vs Avalanche, and of course the greatest rivalry of them all: Garmin vs Apple Watch. We’re fans of both here at Autoblog (Senior Producer Christopher McGraw is currently wearing a Vivoactive 3 Music), but right now, only one is a Prime Day Deal, and it’s up to 48% off, in fact. This includes a ton of the Garmin smartwatches including the Fenix 5 plus, Vivoactive 4 and 4S, Instinct, Forerunner 645 and a bunch more. We’re not saying it’ll improve your Ironman times, but it might make your training sessions a little more impactful. Check out the deal above to upgrade your wrist “hardwear.” 

Segway Ninebot S Smart Self-Balancing Electric Scooter – $379.99 (22% off)

Remember when those two-wheeled, balancing “hoverboards” were all the rage a few years back before they started lighting houses on fire while charging? Good times. Well, this Ninebot S isn’t so far off, apart from the fire starting. This self-balancing scooter has a range of over a half-marathon at 13.7 miles, a top speed of 10 miles per hour and can handle inclines of up to 15% without breaking a sweat. Speaking of breaking a sweat, that’s one thing you won’t be doing riding around on this Segway. And at 22% off, you won’t be breaking the bank either.

TOPTRO Native 1080P Projector – $179.99 (25% off)

The first home theater deal we’re featuring, the TOPTRO projector is great for those who want a full hd projection. Unlike projectors that say that they “support” 1080p but project in 720p (or worse, an unwatchable 480p), the TOPTRO projects in 1080 and can support up to 4K. Another huge plus is the removable dust filter, meaning it is super easy for anyone to clean out. 


Vantrue N2 Pro Uber Dual 1080P Dash Cam – $119.99 (40% off)

This dash camera features time lapse video, parking mode, night vision, and in-app WiFi and GPS. It has a front facing camera and a sensor that simultaneously captures video inside the vehicle cabin. It’s backed by a 1-year warranty and currently has a 4.4 star rating on Amazon.

High powered portable car vacuum – $27.96 (30% off)

The Hotor handheld vac is made for the 12V outlet in your car. It has a bright LED light to help you see under and in between seats, and three different nozzles with lots of useful attachments to clean those hard to reach places. Comes with a washable filter and carrying case.

WizGear Magnetic Phone Car Mount – $11.89 (34% off)

A great addition to any car, cell phone mounts help you go hands-free while driving. This mount sticks to your dash with a 3M adhesive strip so it doesn’t block air vents. With over 10,000 ratings and an average 4.3 out of 5 stars this phone mount is worth considering. It’s a lightning deal that’s already partially claimed (at the time we wrote this) so you’ll have to move fast.


Remote Control Construction Dump Truck – $87.20 (42% off)

This RC toy truck from Top Race can haul up to 7 lbs with a play time of 45 to 50 minutes per charge. It has a solid Amazon rating (4.4 stars) but the deal is already 48% claimed so you’ll have to move fast on this one. The transmitter uses 4 AA batteries (not included). Great for ages 5 and up.

Kids Against Maturity – $19.49 (51% off)

For fans of the game Cards Against Humanity, this is a great family-friendly version to add to your game night rotation. Good for four players or more, ages 10 and up. Includes 500 question and answer cards. 

LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Rocket Truck – $11.79 (41% off) SOLD OUT

With this 198 piece kit the little engineer on your shopping list can build a rocket truck, off-roader and quad bike (not at the same time). Perfect for builders aged 7 and up.
