More: 16 Amazon Prime secrets you didn’t know about
1. The most popular Instant Pot is at its lowest price yet
Stop everything. We just found out that the Instant Pot Duo is at its lowest price ever at Amazon. Right now, you can get it for just $50 thanks to an on-page coupon for $10 off, which is half off. That’s insane—and Prime Day hasn’t even started yet. People (including myself) love this magical cooking device because it can literally do it all. You can steam vegetables, sauté onions for a curry, and even bake in it—and fast. Seriously, pressure cooking has changed my life and is great for summer cooking when you’re already hot and don’t want to turn on your oven. At this price, you really should try it out for yourself.
Plus, if you want an Instant Pot with an LCD screen and extra features like an egg cooker and cake maker, the Instant Pot Duo Plus is also on sale for $70 at Amazon.

2. Half off: The most popular Echo speaker
Smart speakers can be a lot of fun to have around the house, and right now you can get the most affordable smart speaker in the Alexa family for an even better deal. Most of the time when Amazon lowers the price for the Dot, they do it by under $20, but you can get it for half off right now and get this awesome speaker for $25, which is incredible. This third-generation Dot speaker came out late last year and it makes it so easy to voice control your music, check the weather, set alarms, and ask Alexa all kinds of questions. These were back-ordered quickly last year when their price dropped this low before, and we wouldn’t be surprised if this happened again for Prime Day, so grab one while you can.

4. Under $35: Our favorite affordable grill thermometer
Summer is the time for grilling and having a blast, but if you want to make sure meat is cooked at the right temperature, you’re definitely going to need a meat thermometer. Thermoworks makes some of our favorite meat thermometers, and right now you can get the most affordable grill thermometer we’ve ever tested for 20% off. Since the ThermoWorks DOT usually goes for $43, this is a terrific discount and you’re saving about $10. This also makes a great gift for grill lovers, so pick one up while this deal lasts.
Get the Thermoworks DOT for $34.40 at Thermoworks (Save $8.60)
5. Under $30: These flashlights that don’t need batteries
I know, I know—buying a flashlight probably isn’t high on your to-do list. And to be fair, it’s kind of a boring purchase, at least compared to some of the other cool things on this list. But these Anker flashlights are different, in that you don’t actually need batteries for them. They’re actually USB rechargeable, which is so convenient. The LC40 usually runs for $20 and it’s our favorite affordable flashlight, but the LC90 (which is normally $36) is even better, since it’s brighter and boasts a better range. You can still save on both of these flashlights, and they can offer great peace of mind—especially if you’re planning any big trips this summer.
- Get the Anker Bolder LC90 for $26.99 (Save $9) with the code “ANKERLITE”
- Get the Anker Bolder LC40 for $15.99 (Save $4) with the code “ANKERLC40”
6. Under $150: The best affordable robot vacuum around
Vacuuming floors in this weather? Ugh. Chores like that are lousy to do pretty much always, but it’s especially annoying having to take time out of your busy day to clean floors, especially when you’d rather be outside enjoying this fine summer weather. Allow me to introduce you to your next favorite purchase: the Eufy RoboVac 11S robot vacuum.
This little guy is the best affordable robot vacuum we’ve ever tested, and it can help take one more task off your chore list. It helps keep floors tidy between deeper clean sessions, and right now you can get it for the lowest price we’ve ever seen, courtesy an an on-page coupon for $25 off and the promo code “ROBOCVAC11S.” That means you’re actually getting $75 off, and since this only lasts through July 14, you definitely don’t want to put this purchase off for long.
Get the Eufy RoboVac 11S Robot Vacuum on Amazon for $149 (Save $74.99) with the code “ROBOVAC11S”
7. Get up to 70% off on select All-Clad cookware
Want professional-grade cookware but don’t want to drop a small fortune to get it? We love All-Clad’s incredible selection of pots, pans, and kitchen tools, but we’re not usually so crazy about their price. Today, however, is a different thing, because right now you can grab some of All-Clad’s highly coveted cookware for up to 70% off during their Packaging Damage sale. What does that mean, exactly? Well, these are items that were damaged slightly during shipping and/or packaging. They’re still absolutely fine to use and can be an exquisite addition to any kitchen, but technically speaking, All-Clad wouldn’t sell them for full price because they have some cosmetic damage (i.e. a small scratch or ding). If you want amazing cookware and you’re shopping on a budget, these are worth grabbing. All-Clad doesn’t do sales often, so that’s another reason to take advantage of this sale while you can.
