The Very Best Prime Day Amazon Deals (UPDATING)

Prime Day is finally here, and so are the bargains. We're scouring Amazon for the very best deals the World's Biggest Store is offering during its annual discount bonanza. We'll be updating this list throughout the day, so keep checking back! 

Mental Floss has affiliate relationships with certain retailers, including Amazon, and may receive a small percentage of any sale. But we only get commission on items you buy and don’t return, so we’re only happy if you’re happy. Good luck deal hunting!


The wildly popular 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker manages to cram a rice cooker, a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a yogurt maker, a warmer, a steamer, and a saute/browing pan into one tight package. The device has piled up a stellar 4.7-star Amazon rating with over 19,000 reviews, and it's also been one of the most popular items for Mental Floss shoppers. For anyone with a tight kitchen space, this versatile cooker is a convenient, compact workhorse. It's usually $129.95, but today it's marked all the way down to $89.99. Pick one up for yourself or your favorite cook!

Thinking of upgrading your TV? Today's the day. Sony's XBR55X700D 55-inch model is down to just $500. Sure, it may be the 2016 model, but once you get your first look at the 4K picture quality, all you'll remember is what a bargain you got.

Luggage isn't the world's sexiest purchase, but a good suitcase or carryon can make any trip feel that much smoother. Samsonite may be the biggest name in the suitcase game, and Amazon is knocking over $300 off several exclusive sets for Prime Day. If you have been needing to pick up a new carry-on spinner and checked back, you can nab both for under $120, a real steal.

Are you sick of having to get up and walk across the room to turn on a light? Of course you are. We all are. Now, there's finally a way to escape the tyranny of light switches. Amazon's hands-free, voice-controlled Echo Dot can sync up with the Philips Hue smart lighting system to control all the lights in your home. This bundle comes with an Echo Dot, which can control all manner of smart lights, thermostats, locks, thermostats, and the like, and a Philips Hue starter kit of two A19 LED smart bulbs and a bridge controller. A bundle like this would ordinarily set you back $120, but Amazon's slashed the price down to $84.75. If you've been waiting to make your home a little smarter, it's time to take the plunge.

A good drill can make a world of difference in your DIY and home repair projects, and Amazon is offering a steal on a 20V lithium-ion Black + Decker model for Prime Day. The project kit comes with a 20V drill that offers more than enough power for your standard household jobs, plus a set of screwdriving and drilling bits, a level, a utility knife, a tape measure, and a carrying case. If your drill is on its last legs, you can't go wrong with a $33 upgrade.

For an activity that's supposed to be rugged and simplistic, camping can be expensive. Tents can be especially pricey, so if you're planning to get back to the land, you'll want to jump on the Prime Day tent deal. Amazon is offering the eight-person Coleman Montana tent for just $67.99, a huge savings off of its normal $219.99 list price. Yes, for the price of one night in a hotel room that would almost certainly be mildly disgusting, you can own your very own tent. This model has a 4.1-star rating over nearly 1600 reviews, and it's also the official tent of the National Park Foundation. And trust us, those guys know their tents.

Vacuuming is the most tedious of chores, and until scientists can finally deliver on the robotic-maid promises The Jetsons made, you can farm out at least a little bit of your housework to a robot. Roomba's robotic vacuums are handy, effective time-savers, but they're usually on the pricey side. For one day, Amazon's solving that price. The Roomba 652 is marked all the way down to $250 today. If you hate vacuuming and love feeling like you're living in the future, you can't afford not to buy one.

Chances are good that you're overdue for a new toothbrush. On Prime Day, you can own the smartest toothbrush you've ever seen at an even smarter price. The Oral-B Pro 700 Series gives you real-time feedback to help direct your brushing on the most important areas, gives you a warning when you're brushing too hard, and tracks your brushing habits. It's even Bluetooth compatible! It's also racked up a 4.4-star average over 3,100 reviews, so there are lots of smiling customers out there. This kind of tooth-brushing technology would usually set you back $219.99, but Amazon has scrubbed the price down to $85 for Prime Day. You can't even get one cavity filled for $85. Trust us.

The ChopBox Smart Cutting Board Has a Food Scale, Timer, and Knife Sharper Built Right Into It


When it comes to furnishing your kitchen with all of the appliances necessary to cook night in and night out, you’ll probably find yourself running out of counter space in a hurry. The ChopBox, which is available on Indiegogo and dubs itself “The World’s First Smart Cutting Board,” looks to fix that by cramming a bunch of kitchen necessities right into one cutting board.

In addition to giving you a knife-resistant bamboo surface to slice and dice on, the ChopBox features a built-in digital scale that weighs up to 6.6 pounds of food, a nine-hour kitchen timer, and two knife sharpeners. It also sports a groove on its surface to catch any liquid runoff that may be produced by the food and has a second pull-out cutting board that doubles as a serving tray.

There’s a 254nm UVC light featured on the board, which the company says “is guaranteed to kill 99.99% of germs and bacteria" after a minute of exposure. If you’re more of a traditionalist when it comes to cleanliness, the ChopBox is completely waterproof (but not dishwasher-safe) so you can wash and scrub to your heart’s content without worry. 

According to the company, a single one-hour charge will give you 30 days of battery life, and can be recharged through a Micro USB port.

The ChopBox reached its $10,000 crowdfunding goal just 10 minutes after launching its campaign, but you can still contribute at different tiers. Once it’s officially released, the ChopBox will retail for $200, but you can get one for $100 if you pledge now. You can purchase the ChopBox on Indiegogo here.
