Amazon tablets are not the only products you can find a deal on. There are other discounts on brands that include Samsung, Google, and Lenovo. Our personal favorite? SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab A8. It has a 10.5″ display, 128GB of memory, and a great user experience that makes it a bargain, particularly at a 36% discount.

iRobot Roombas

Always wanted your own robot cleaner to take care of your home or office while you take care of other things? Well, since Amazon and iRobot are joining forces to give you up to 50% off, now is your chance. You can snag one of the less expensive models in the iRobot Roomba 692 Robot Vacuum or get the self-emptying iRobot Roomba j6+ and witness machines doing your cleaning for you.

Grabbing a Dyson is the next best thing to having a robot clean your house for you, especially if you are looking to get every hair. That is precisely what the Dyson Ball Animal 2 vacuum can accomplish. With powerful suction and easy maneuvering, you can ensure your house or office is perfectly clean. Moreover, with Prime Big Deal Days, you get it (37% off) and many other Dyson products at significant savings.

BISSELL’s Revolution HydroSteam Pet Carpet Cleaner is also on sale if you need a deeper clean.

Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones

Sony is known to make one of the best pair of headphones you can find on the market, and that remains true whether you need something to listen to music or want to make phone calls. The only problem is that the premium product comes with a premium price tag. Fortunately, Prime Big Deal Days presents the perfect opportunity to get 29% off these Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones. There are also deals on other pairs and earbuds.

Laptops – ASUS, HP, and More

It is always nice to find big-ticket items on sale, and Prime Big Deal Days has quite a few, from TVs to laptops. Personally, we like ASUS, such as the affordable ASUS Vivobook Go 12, which is 36% off, or the ASUS ZenBook Pro, a pricier model that is currently going for 28% off. Regardless of whether you need something simple for work or want a dual-purpose machine that can handle games and multimedia, Amazon has you covered right now.

Peloton Workout Equipment

If you are thinking about upgrading your home office, you might also want to consider snagging some Peloton workout equipment at the same time. Not only can you grab an Original Peloton Bike with HD Touchscreen at 24% off, but there are also deals on things like the Peloton Guide and Peloton Dumbbells for complete workout prowess from within your own home.

Apple AirPods (2nd Generation) Wireless Earbuds

While these are not the only Apple products on sale, they are a whole 31% off on Prime Big Deal Days. That is a fantastic savings on a pair of earbuds so popular it has nearly 600,000 positive reviews. However, if you prefer, there are also significant savings on Apple AirPods Pro and Apple AirPods Max, among others.

Other Deals You Don’t Want to Miss

There are too many deals to count on Prime Big Deal Days, so we will highlight a few more before letting you go explore on your own, which you can do on the event homepage.

First are toys. With the holidays already upon us, it is time to search for the perfect gift, and Prime Big Deal Days makes that much easier. There is everything from high-quality Holy Stone drones to the very popular Barbie toys and LEGOs, and who doesn’t wish LEGOs were cheaper? No matter what age or interest, there are gifts suitable for all.

Cosmetics are also on sale, including brands like Laneige and Innisfree. In fact, LANEIGE’s popular Lip Sleeping Mask is 30% off, so it might be time to stock up.

Essentials and accessories are two categories many people overlook during events like Prime Big Deal Days, going only for big-ticket items and forgetting how much basic supplies like batteries, cables, and home improvement products can be. These items, along with kitchen supplies, are worth buying in bulk while they are on sale. After all, you’ll always need lightbulbs and batteries, and having a backup cable or two never hurt.

Conclusion

There are too many deals to count during Prime Big Deal Days, so everyone is guaranteed to find something they need. However, you should try to get what you need as soon as possible since there is always a chance the deal is limited or supplies run out before you can get yours. Don’t forget to check out the event’s main page to navigate through the numerous offerings.

You can also snag a Prime membership now if you do not already have one. There is a free 30-day trial for those who only want to be a member to access the amazing deals.
