If you’ve been an Amazon Prime member for at least a year, you most likely know about — and look forward to — Amazon Prime Day. One day a year, Amazon offers a slew of deals. Think: Black Friday-like prices, but just on Amazon, and in July.
And while we don’t know just what will be on sale yet, we can look at past Prime Days to get an idea.
The past two Prime Days were Mondays. In 2018, Prime Day was on July 16 and lasted for a day and a half. In 2017, Prime Day was July 10. Prime Day 2019 will last 48 hours over the course of July 15-16.
Looking back at previous years’ bargains, it would be safe to assume you can find some great deals on Amazon products, like Alexa-enabled devices, Kindles, Fire TV sticks and more. You’ll also most likely find deals on Instant Pots, as they have proven popular in previous years, along with other kitchen products, such as stand mixers.
Other items that are normally marked down on Prime Day include exercise accessories like water bottles, smart TVs, vacuums, select furniture, baby monitors and outdoor cameras, clothing, books and a whole lot more.
In 2017, the most popular item worldwide was the Echo Dot. A 23andMe DNA test took the top spot in the United States, and in Canada, Instant Pots were the most-bought item. The following year, the U.S. jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon and made that the most popular item in the country, while our neighbors to the north were buying tons of Lifestraw water filters. The top item worldwide in 2018 remained the Echo Dot, along with the Fire TV Stick.
Taking all of that into account, here are some deals you just might find on this year’s Prime Day:
The Instant Pot was popular in multiple countries two years in a row, so odds are it will be on sale this year, too. In 2018, it was on sale for 41% off and sold out early, so Amazon ended up discounting a different multi-cooker instead.
KitchenAid Stand Mixer
You’ll probably find some sort of stand mixer on sale — if not a KitchenAid, something similar. In 2018, a KitchenAid mixer was on sale for $279.87, regularly $349.99. Interestingly, the same KitchenAid stand mixer is on sale for $269.87 right now, though some colors are even less, and some don’t include shipping, so shop carefully. If this on your must-have list, you could take a chance and snatch it up immediately, or see if it will go even lower on Prime Day.
23andMe DNA Test
Amazon sold a ton of 23andMe DNA tests on Prime Day 2017, so you will likely find some brand of DNA test on sale again. The current price of the 23andMe DNA test is $199, but it was $99 on Prime Day.
Roomba Vacuum Cleaner
This iRobot Roomba 652 Robotic vacuum cleaner was included in the deals on Prime Day 2017, so chances are you’ll be able to find a Roomba, another brand of robotic vacuum or at least some other kind of vacuum on Prime Day 2019.
Fire TV Stick
The Fire TV stick featuring Alexa was popular last year, so chances are it will be on sale again. The current price is $39.99 and you can probably expect at least $10 off … but it may be even more.
What are you hoping to see on sale for this year’s Amazon Prime Day?
