As we enter the second official day of Prime Day, we’re seeing some fantastic Prime Day Deals on everything from health products, like blood oxygen monitors, to the latest tech, to massagers and vacuums. Our readers are some of the savviest shoppers out there, and we’ve taken their feedback to share with you the deals that they’ve been flocking towards. Get a leg up on Amazon’s big discount day by following the best Prime Day seals, according to our readers.

If you look at this list, one thing becomes clear: We know that we’ll be spending a good amount of time at home this winter, probably stretching towards the spring. Medical experts have weighed in, and while a vaccine to the pandemic might be developed in the coming months, it won’t be widely available until we get into 2021. Our readers are looking to items like the Roomba 692 Robot Vacuum from iRobot, to make sure the home stays effortlessly clean, and the Echo Show, to give you peace of mind (and maybe keep an eye on the kids) while you work away in your home office. Apple AirPods Pro are another popular item, which makes sense because of their ability to create a noiseless sanctuary — no matter what’s happening around you — while giving you total mobility; you can continue your Zoom meeting while checking on dinner in your Instant Pot. It’s all about convenience, safety, and peace of mind.

Our readers know what they’re doing, and we’re here to pass their knowledge, and the savings, on to you.

Discounts on Apple products are rare but for Prime Day 2020, the company has slashed prices across the board on Amazon. If you’ve been meaning to upgrade your MacBook or your relatively old iPad or even switch to AirPods from the dusty-ol’ wired EarPods, there’s no better time. But you have to act fast, because all of these deals will expire before the day's end. Lucky for you, you won’t have to browse through heaps of listings as we’ve compiled the 11 best last-minute Apple Prime Day deals right here.
Apple AirPods with Charging Case
-- $114, was $159

Apple’s base AirPods are on sale, too, and are available on Amazon for $44 off. The difference between this product and the higher-end model is that the case here doesn’t support wireless charging. Apart from that, the Apple AirPods are a no-brainer if you’re looking to upgrade to wireless earbuds. While they can connect to any Bluetooth-enabled device, they work best with an iPhone thanks to exclusive features such as instant pairing and gesture customization.
