What Other Prime Day Deals Do We Expect?
Predicting Prime Day deals isn’t an easy task, but we can safely assume that Amazon will slash prices on its own devices and brands, such as Echo, Alexa, Kindles, Fire tablets, Amazon Newsstand and Prime Video Channels. We also wouldn’t be surprised to see sales on the Cloud Cam and Blink.
Also, given the delay in Prime Day and need to break through an expected cluttered sales season in October, Amazon might launch brand-new products. TBD!
Fun fact(s): According to Amazon, the most-purchased items on 2019 Prime Day were the Instant Pot DUO60, the 23andMe DNA Test Kit, Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips Kits and LifeStraw personal water filters.
Certain categories consistently see discounts during Prime Day. So with that in mind, below are the items we’re placing bargain bets on:
Smart home devices and lighting (especially Roomba vacuums, Echo devices and anything that pairs with Alexa)
TVs and laptops
Hand tools and appliances
Household essentials (trash bags, coffee, dishwasher detergent, batteries)
Fashion (both from Amazon’s own brands but also FRYE, Under Armour, J.Crew and Crocs)
Magazines from Amazon Newsstand
