A great deal doesn’t always mean that it’s going to be cheap. If you’re getting a computer or a couch, you’re probably going to be outlaying some cash. But that’s not the case here. We’ve rounded up the best deals from Amazon Prime Day that are a great deal and easy on the wallet. Whether you need an iPhone case, a screen protector, or a weighted blanket, we have those here.
Some of these deals might require a membership, including Amazon Prime or Target Circle. Amazon Prime has a free 30-day trial. Target Circle is free to sign up, and you’ll need to save the offer to your account from the main offer page or on the actual buy page for a particular item to see the deal price at checkout.

You can find more picks in our Best iPhone 14 Cases and Accessories guide.
Hate iPhone cases but still want some kind of protection? Totallee’s your answer. Its cases are so thin that they’re by no means going to protect your iPhone from a drop, but they should keep everyday scuffs and scratches at bay. There are cutouts for the buttons on the sides and very minimally raised edges all around. There’s no official MagSafe support, but because the case is so thin, it works well with MagSafe accessories. Totallee’s clear cases are slightly more protective if you want to increase your protection while still keeping things very slim.
Zagg’s screen protectors are great. They’re among our favorite iPhone accessories, but the biggest issue with them is how expensive they are compared to the competition. Right now is the best time to get not only a great screen protector for an astonishingly low price but one that can keep prying eyes from seeing your screen.
WIRED editor Julian Chokkattu loves this little power bank, which we judged as the best for tablets in our Best Portable Power Banks guide. It fits in the padded sleeve of most backpacks and can recharge an 11-inch tablet twice. It even has a lovely fabric cover so that it doesn’t look out of place sitting on your table at the coffee shop.
Another favorite from our iPhone accessories guide is the Otter + Pop Symmetry Case, which is great for—you guessed it—PopSocket fans. It’s really only worth investing in if you love using a PopSocket all the time, since the case itself is a bit bulky and doesn’t have MagSafe support.
One of our favorite MacBook accessories, this Apple charger has two USB-C ports enabling you to charge up an iPad or MacBook alongside your iPhone. It is compact, with folding prongs, so you can slip it into your bag when you hit the road.
OtterBox’s Commuter Series packs some of the best protection you can find in an iPhone case, but without the bulkiness and separate holster that the heavier OtterBox Defender has. Instead, get this slimmer version of great protection for a better price than you’ll normally find.
This case is the top pick in our guide to the Best Samsung Galaxy S23 Cases and Accessories. It’s protective without adding too much bulk to your phone’s sleek silhouette. It won’t interfere with wireless charging, and we also like that the case is partially comprised of recycled plastic. Just note to avoid the clear versions—the buttons are rattly.
This is our favorite cheap iPad folio case. As the name suggests, it’s rugged. It protects your entire iPad, and the folio can fold to double as a stand for your slate. We wish the cover would automatically turn off an iPad screen when closed, but this is still a solid case—especially when it’s this affordable.
We included this in our guide to the Best iPad Accessories because it’s our favorite iPad stand. The design is sturdy and stable, and it’s lightweight enough that you can move it from room to room. You can also adjust the height and the viewing angle of your tablet thanks to the built-in hinges.
There’s nothing quite like drawing on an iPad—until you draw on one with a Paperlike screen protector. As the name suggests, these matte overlays make your iPad’s glossy display feel more like paper. The added texture and friction won’t impede your process, but they might improve it a lot. I, Louryn, found that these screen protectors made my handwriting look more natural with the Apple Pencil, too. Read more about these protectors in our guide to the Best iPad Accessories.
A wide selection of cases from Casetify are on sale for $30. You’ll need to be logged in to your Amazon Prime account in order to see the deal price. We’ve tested and enjoyed a few different cases from this brand. They tend to strike a good balance between style and protectiveness.
This flash drive made our list of the Best iPad Accessories. If you’re constantly getting notifications that your cloud storage is full, this flash drive is a handy way to offload some files. It has USB-C and Lightning connectors, so you can use it with your iPhone too. Read more about it and find additional recommendations in our guide to the Best Flash Drives.
This kit appears in our Best Travel Adapters guide and includes multiple plug attachments that slide and lock into place to keep you powered across most of the world. It is much larger than your average adapter but provides two grounded US AC outlets. There is also a built-in USB-C cable, two USB-A ports, and two USB-C ports.
Home, Kitchen, and Office Deals
Teach “Yes, Chef!” early with the Raddish Kids, one of our favorite kids’ subscription boxes for the budding culinary artist. The recipes are easy for kids to follow, and the tiny utensils included in the box are irresistibly cute and perfect for little hands.
We love Rezip’s reusable baggies as a cheaper alternative to Stasher bags. A variety of sizes are available from Rezip right now, including the 8-piece bundle, 10-pack flat bags, 2-pack collapsible pet bowls, and 2-pack tall bags.
Apparently capable of filtering out bacteria, parasites, and microplastics the LifeStraw is good for 4,000 liters and could be a handy addition to your backpack on your next camping trip. We have seen this a couple of bucks lower, but not recently.
Stasher bags are a WIRED Gear Team reusable favorite. They’re a silicone replacement for single-use ziplock bags, and they come in multiple sizes for all your needs, like sandwiches and snacks, or something smaller to hold your bolts and screws. They’re dishwasher-, freezer-, and microwave-safe. They even work for sous vide cooking.
This has topped our Best Cold Brewers list for several years now. It’s an immersion brewer. You fill a mesh tube inside the pot and then pour water over it, letting it steep for a day. The glass carafe is reinforced with plastic so it’s not as slippery or crack-prone as others, and the mesh filter is fine enough that your coffee won’t fill with as much sediment as its competitors. It almost never costs more than $18 these days, but saving a few bucks never hurts.
The Espro Ultralight Coffee Press combines the insulated walls of a coffee mug with a built-in French press. Unlike some other French presses, this one leaves behind very little sediment, avoiding that gritty mouthfeel when you take a sip.
Everyone should have a cast iron skillet in their kitchen. They last forever (if you take care of them), distribute heat evenly, and, when properly seasoned, even have the same non-stick properties as more modern pans.
OmieBox has perfected the art of bento boxes with this set. Not only does it come with clasping lids that stay in place, but the smaller containers can latch onto the lid of the larger one, so all the pieces of your meal stay together. No more awkwardly stacking boxes inside your bag.
This bamboo cutting board lets you reclaim some of the extra space taken up by unused stovetop burners. It covers one half of your stove so you can chop up all your ingredients right where it’s convenient to drop them into your pans.
Why use annoying clingy single-use plastic wrap when you can replace it with Bees Wraps? This product is more sustainable and more economical. It’s made of organic cotton, sustainably sourced beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin. Use it to wrap up your leftovers and rinse it in cold water for a wrap that keeps on wrapping. Each roll lasts for a year or longer. Read more about it in our guide to the Best Reusable Products.
The Owala FreeSip (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is one of our favorite water bottles. The lid lets you choose between sipping from a straw or swigging from the spout. We love the leak-proof design and the fun color scheme, too. Read our guide to the Best Reusable Water Bottles for additional picks.
This clever laptop stand appears in our best laptop stands guide. It can be easily configured into five different positions. At its tallest 10-inch height, you can comfortably stand for a little while, but you might want something taller if you are standing all day. What we really like about this one is that it’s light and folds down to just half an inch thick, so you can take it anywhere without adding much bulk.
This USB-C hub turns one port into three. You’ll get a USB-C port, a USB-A port, an HDMI port, and a headphone jack. We’ve recommended this in several guides, including the Best USB-C Hubs, the Best iPad Accessories, the Best MacBook Accessories, and our guide to Work-From-Home Gear.
The Anker Outlet Extender is a great way to add more outlets to your office without adding another power strip. It turns two outlets into six, plus it has a USB-A port and a USB-C port. It also has an optional nightlight. We feature this gadget in our guide to the most essential work-from-home gear.
Another work-from-home essential, this laptop desk can add some structure to your workflow when you’re typing away from your couch or bed. Part of the surface is adjustable, and part of it stays flat, so you’ll always have a place to rest your coffee. There’s even a tiny built-in drawer.
The Happy Planner is our favorite paper planner. It nicely toes the line of having cute features and frills without feeling overwhelming, and it’s super customizable. Happy Planner has a large sale going on, with 20 percent off the Back-to-School Collection, and 30 percent off the 18-Month Planners and Stickers (Spring Collection). There’s also an additional 30 percent off select, already-discounted items.
This is a slight variation of our favorite white-noise machine. While it lacks the buttons of the LectroFan Classic, it comes in a more attractive package and has more sound choices. It typically dips as low as $35, but we’ve never seen it this low.
It’s almost time for the newest Barbie movie to come out and it’s only fitting to celebrate with a massive sale on nearly 250 Barbie toys, play sets, and accessories. What better way to prepare for what will surely be a milestone moment in cinema history?
Having a few games on hand is helpful for curing boredom or impromptu game nights with friends. Amazon has a huge selection of board games and puzzles on sale right now to consider. Some highlights include the Cards Against Humanity Ultimate Expansion for $103 ($27 off), Dice Forge for $39 ($17 off), and Ticket to Ride for $30 ($25 off).
One of our favorite STEM toys for kids, this rock tumbler helps kids get interested in fossils and geology by showing them what kind of shiny gems and hidden treasures are lurking inside the rocks they find in the yard.
This clear bubble umbrella from ShedRain is one of our favorites. It has a 38-inch diameter canopy that’s spacious enough to keep you covered, while still letting you keep an eye on your surroundings.
The Weatherman Travel Umbrella is hands down our top umbrella pick. It automatically opens and closes, uses sturdy fiberglass ribs to hold its shape, and weighs less than a pound. It’s remarkably sturdy even in heavy wind situations, which is impressive for such a small package.
Amazon’s newest smart speaker is adorable on the eyes. The Echo Pop (7/10, WIRED Recommends) comes in fun colors and performs with solid-enough sound for its price point—and even more so right now since it’s more than half off.
The smaller, and cheaper, third-gen Echo Show 5 is easy to add to desks or side tables thanks to its small size. We think it’s a little too small to use in the kitchen or living room compared to other smart displays, but if a small size sounds ideal to you, the price is fantastic.
This is the lowest price we see for this smart plug. The Amazon Smart Plug is great for those who just want a smart plug to pair with their Amazon Alexa. You won’t need a separate app, just your current Alexa app. It’s not as easy to set up schedules and timers as it is with other smart plugs, but if you mainly plan to use voice command with your Echo or are familiar with the Alexa app, you’ll be fine.
The fifth generation of the Echo Dot is the best-sounding Dot yet, with better bass than previous models. The digital clock, small size, and ability to wake you up with your favorite playlist make it a perfect addition to any bedside table, which is exactly why we recommend it as the best Echo speaker for bedrooms.
The Blink Mini is a solid compact indoor security camera. It’s reliable and has good-quality video, two-way audio, accurate motion detection, activity zones, and integration with Alexa. The only downsides are that you need a $3 monthly subscription for cloud storage to record events and that it can’t distinguish between pets and people when it sees movement. But if you want a dependable, affordable security camera that will work with Alexa, this is a great choice and a better price than we’ve seen at past sale events.
These rope lights from Govee are one of our favorite smart lighting options. They support full RGB colors, come with a variety of pre-loaded animated scenes, and can react to music. The durable plastic strips are also water resistant so you can even use them outdoors.
A water leak detector might not top your wish list of smart home gadgets, but if your pipes burst, you might wish it had. The Moen Smart Water Detector is our top pick in this category. It alerts you within seconds if it detects a leak, and can also track temperature and humidity for up to 24 hours.
On the simpler side, this Govee water leak detector is inexpensive enough you can get several for a little more than just one of our other picks. These are easy to install, can send push notifications to your phone if it detects a leak, and if that fails, its siren can reach an impossible-to-miss 100 decibels.
Get our favorite smart plug for less than $10. The miniature size packs the same punch as larger smart plugs, but is easier to stack and won’t obstruct a second outlet. The app is pretty simple to navigate, and there are scenes, timers, and schedules you can program.
Our favorite light strips are on sale. Add them to back of furniture or underneath cabinets to add color into any room, and use either the power box or the app to control them.
Streaming, Tech, and Gaming Deals
If you want to use Alexa to control your TV, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max is our favorite streaming device from Amazon. It has a few benefits over older models, and it’s also a great choice for if you want to check your Amazon-compatible security camera feeds while watching TV. We last saw the price this low for Cyber Monday last year.
If you want a great remote with Google Assistant built in, plus the ability to easily stream from your phone, get the Chromecast with Google TV (8/10, WIRED Recommends). It has a wide selection of apps and can search across all of your streaming platforms at once for a show or movie, so it’s fast and easy to find what you want to watch.
While we like the Plus version better, the Roku Streaming Stick 4K is still easy to navigate, has all the major streaming services, and comes with a remote. Unlike the Plus, the remote doesn’t have hands-free voice control, but it has everything else. Walmart has the streaming stick on sale for $34 right now, while Target and Best Buy currently both have it on sale for $35.
While many of the best gaming headsets are expensive, you don’t have to break the bank. This headset is our pick for smaller budgets, and it is surprisingly robust. It feels every bit as sturdy as Steelseries’ more expensive offerings and sounds almost as good. It has been slightly lower than this, but not for a few months.
Luna is Amazon’s game streaming service, which has a few different channels, most of which have their own subscription fee (though there is a rotating section of free games). If you subscribe to one of these, like the Luna+ or Ubisoft+ channels, or if you play the free games, you can pick up the Luna controller for nearly half off right now.
If you love British telly, then don’t sleep on this deal to get two months of Britbox for a mere $1. It has a range of older British shows and Britbox originals like Sherwood and The Cleaner, and a few films from broadcasters like BBC, ITV, Channel 4, and Channel 5.
Your kids need headphones just as much as you do, and these are our favorites for the little ones. They hit that perfect intersection of sturdy and inexpensive, so they’ll hopefully last a while, and won’t be too expensive to replace if your kid breaks them anyway.
You might not think too much about what USB drive you use, but fortunately, we do. And we like this SanDisk Extreme Pro the most. It packs 128 gigabytes of storage in an inexpensive package, but it’s still durable with an aluminum case and a loop for easy attachment to a keyring.
A compact alternative to our top flash drive, the PNY Pro Elite V2 includes twice as much storage as the SanDisk drive and reaches read speeds up to 600MB/s and write speeds up to 250MB/s. It’s not quite as durable as the aluminum-cased SanDisk, but it’s still solid and reliable.
These PNY micro SD cards are one of our picks if you need to outfit a collection of security cameras with cards. The 64-gigabyte capacity isn’t overly huge and not super useful for most photographers or filmmakers, but this pack of three is cheap enough that you can spread them across several smaller security cameras for a pittance.
Wired controllers may not be the rage they once were, but they’re still a great way to save cash on console accessories. This one from GameSir is our top pick for controllers of the corded variety. It features customizable back paddles, a hair trigger mode, and swappable faceplates.
Travel and Personal Care Deals
This sleek iOttie will stay securely on your car vent while holding up MagSafe-enabled iPhones with the help of powerful magnets. It’s one of our favorite car mounts since it doesn’t move an inch, even on bumpy roads, and has a ball joint so you can angle it toward you. The only downside is the built-in USB-C cable.
This Yeti tumbler is pretty close to the Yeti travel mug we recommend, so it’s worth taking advantage of the sale. You’ll enjoy the matte exterior, the clear, sealed lid that lets you see how much is left in your cup (you can also use other Yeti lids), and coffee that will stay nice and hot.
This rugged camera case from Moment is one of our favorites for protecting your gear at home or on the go. They have space to store lenses, microphone attachments, film (if you’re still into that), batteries, and whatever other gizmos your camera gear needs.
The Satisfyer Pro 2 Gen 3 is our favorite suction toy for most people. It provides powerful suction but is also surprisingly gentle. The body of the toy is covered in soft silicone, making it easier to hold, and the mouth is removable making it easy to clean. It features a variety of vibration patterns, and a “liquid air” alternate mouth that provides a unique tapping sensation, making the toy great for every body type.
Stroker toys can be a bit of a crapshoot. Many don’t feel much better than using your own hand, but the Tenga Crysta Leaf earned a nod from us. The squishy, stretchy elastomer feels more natural than rigid plastic and allows you to feel and apply pressure with your fingers through the toy. Just make sure to use it with some high-quality water-based lube and clean it when you’re done.
Amazon will automatically discount your order during checkout when you spend at least $50 on select items. There’s a massive selection in this sale, including lots of kitchen and home items. Need to restock on dish soap, granola bars, doggy bags, or vitamins? It’s worth checking out this deal.
Right now, Amazon is taking up to 20 percent off a wide selection of gift cards including Uber, Panera Bread, Fandango, and tons more. It’s basically free money if you were already planning to spend money at these places. There’s a limit of one brand per customer, and make sure to use the assigned coupon code while checking out.
This bonnet hood attachment is perfect for curly hair. It works similarly to the dryers you might sit under at a hair salon, but it folds down to fit in a drawer, you can move around while using it, and it costs less than $20. The discount is slight, but it’s the best we’ve seen.
Gentle pressure on your eyes can make it easier to fall asleep. This mask weighs 9 ounces, so it isn’t too heavy, but it’ll still work—sort of like a miniature weighted blanket for your face. You can put it in the freezer for extra assistance with migraines or hangovers.
Earplugs are an important tool to protect yourself at loud concerts, but they don’t always look great. The Loop Experience Ear Plugs buck the trend by adding some fashionable rings that look more like conch piercings than plugs. These are similar to the Loop Quiet plugs that we’ve tested and loved enough to be one of our best earbud picks.
This is a taller version of our favorite insulator for cold ones. It’s designed for 16oz tallboy cans, the kind often used for various beers, energy drinks, and extra big cans of soda. It’s perfect to toss in with your gear for your next camping trip or tailgate.
One of the best ways to save money year round on Amazon is to sign up for Subscribe & Save, which gives you discounts on consumable items like coffee grounds, protein drinks, or cat food. Right now, you can save an extra 50% on the first order of a new subscription item.
The Colgate Hum (9/10, WIRED Recommends) sonic brush is our favorite smart toothbrush. Slim and light, the small brush head easily reaches the back of your mouth without causing discomfort. A companion mobile app offers insight into your habits. The Hum costs significantly less than most app-connected brushes, and the mobile app’s features are superior to its competitors. We have seen the black color as low as $23, but most colors hover around $42. This deal is currently somewhere in the middle, but it’s still cheaper than we usually see this toothbrush.
