4 Best Early Prime Day TV Deals (October 2023)

4 Best Early Prime Day TV Deals (October 2023)

Black Friday is almost synonymous with great deals on TVs. The original American shopping holiday has featured bargain televisions going back to the days of big-screen sets that weighed as much as a refrigerator. Amazon’s own shopping holidays are increasingly catching up. In July, Prime Day deals on TVs were plentiful, including screaming sales on sets from LG, Samsung, and Vizio. We expect similar sales for Prime Big Deals Days, Amazon’s new October event which will be on October 10 and 11, 2023.

Maybe it’s the start of the NFL season and fall TV schedule, but some of the current TV deals are actually on par with what we’ve seen on Prime Day. We will have the best Prime Day TV deals in October, tracking prices closely on top WIRED-recommended TVs, soundbars, and 4K streaming devices. In the meantime, here are a few current TV sales to keep an eye on.

Updated September 20, 2023: We refreshed this piece in anticipation of Prime Big Deals Days in October, removing two dead deals and adding a nice sale on our favorite TV for gaming

We’ve noted the deals that match the Prime Day price from earlier this summer.

Our favorite TV for gamers is on a steep discount right now, down from its normal $2,100. Reviewer Parker Hall had high praise for this model: “Whether you’re passively viewing or actively gaming, the LG C3 is an object lesson in realism, detail retrieval, motion handling, and all the other stuff that goes into truly satisfying image quality.”

Samsung’s Neo QLED panels are some of the best and brightest I’ve ever seen, making them particularly well-suited to brighter viewing spaces. We have not tested this specific model, but there’s built-in Alexa to help you set timers and play Spotify when you’re not watching a movie. This one features mini-LED backlighting for near-perfect contrast and a center pedestal mount that lets you place it anywhere.

Samsung’s Neo QLED panels are some of the best screens for bright rooms, and this pedestal-mounted 75-incher fits perfectly on most TV stands. This model also features mini-LED backlighting, which means you’ll get even better contrast and color highlights, and it has Alexa onboard, which makes it easy to set timers and ask the weather.

Laptop and Tablet Deals

2022 MacBook Air

Apple MacBook Air

Photograph: Apple

While it was $50 cheaper earlier in the month, this is still an okay price on the best MacBook for most people (7/10, WIRED Recommends). It has a bright and sharp LCD screen, slim borders for a sleek look, and enough power for everyday tasks. The webcam is 1080p, so you’ll look sharp in all your video calls, and there’s a MagSafe magnetic charging port, so if your roommate trips over the cable, the laptop won’t go flying (the cable will just detach). Read our Best MacBooks guide for more.

This older MacBook Air (9/10, WIRED Recommends) was the first to use Apple’s custom silicon, but it’s still plenty powerful for sending emails, writing documents, and browsing the web. It uses Apple’s older design, but that might not matter, considering the stellar price. Remember, you can also use Apple’s Education Store to score steeper discounts.

LG Gram Superslim

The LG Gram SuperSlim (7/10, WIRED Review) is stunning. The 15.6-inch screen belies just how lightweight and portable this super-slim laptop feels. While unfortunately, the performance doesn’t match up to the price tag, the $400 discount makes the value much better. If you need something powerful, pick another recommendation, but this should work just fine for tasks like homework, browsing, and streaming. 

We saw a better discount earlier this month, but this is still a solid price. This gadget is for anyone who wants to enjoy the comfort of a tablet with the productivity of a laptop. The Surface 9’s 12th-gen Intel chip is adept, and you have the option to add 5G connectivity if you want internet access wherever you go. You can read our in-depth thoughts about it here.

The Surface Go 3 is just powerful enough for simple tasks, like web browsing and writing, and it’s lightweight, which makes it great to tote around everywhere. Just remember that you need to buy the Type Cover, which is also on sale for $70 ($30 off), if you want the full experience with the keyboard (though you can also use any Bluetooth keyboard). This has dropped lower in price before, but you can still save some cash if you’re in the market. 

Dell G15 laptop

This isn’t the prettiest laptop, nor is it the most portable, but it’s powerful enough for some gaming between coursework. The G15 has a 1080p screen with a 120-Hz screen refresh rate, does a good job with heat management, and doesn’t get too loud. The power brick is bulky though. Read more in our Best Gaming Laptops guide.

Want a Linux machine? This is a powerful laptop (8/10, WIRED Recommends) with a great selection of ports, and the default Pop!_OS is simple enough for newbies and experts. Read our Best Linux Laptops guide for more recommendations. You’ll automatically get $100 off the laptop after you customize it to your liking.

This discount may not be available near your location (or only might be available as “Open-Box.” Chromebooks run Chrome OS, so most of your work will be done within the Chrome browser. (You can still install Android apps.) This Acer Spin 714 has a 12th-gen Intel Core i5, which should make it powerful enough for most school and office tasks. It’s compact, despite the 14-inch screen, and you get all the ports, including two USB-C ports, an HDMI, a USB-A, and a headphone jack. Read our Best Chromebooks guide for more picks.

OnePlus Pad tablets with keyboards attached

OnePlus Pad

This promotion nets you the magnetic keyboard cover for free ($150 retail value) when you purchase the tablet. We really liked the OnePlus Pad when we tested it (8/10, WIRED Recommends). It’s an Android tablet, but there are a great many improvements in the software to make multitasking more efficient. The LCD screen is bright and sharp, and it has a 144-Hz screen refresh rate. It’ll get three Android OS updates and four years of security updates. 

If you want a Windows laptop straight from the company that manages Windows, we think the Surface Laptop 4 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is the best choice for most. The Ryzen 5 chipset can easily handle more than a dozen tabs in your browser of choice, and its 13.5-inch high-res screen looks nice. You get a USB-C port with a USB-A, plus a magnetic charging port. Read our Best Surface Laptops guide for more details.

This deal is back and even better than we saw last week. The HP Spectre x360 14 is our favorite 2-in-1 laptop. The 3:2 aspect ratio means the screen is square, which makes the laptop especially great for productivity. It’s sleek and slim, with good specs, a nice stylus, and even a USB-A port.

The Kindle Scribe (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is expensive, but it hasn’t fallen this low in price before—even on Prime Day. It’s the best (and only) Kindle for taking notes. It can come in handy while note-taking during lectures or annotating text for a class. This model includes the basic pen and 16 GB of storage; larger capacity versions are also on sale, but their price drops aren’t quite as enticing.

This is the first and best price drop we’ve seen for the recently released Google Pixel Tablet (7/10, WIRED Recommends). The tablet itself performs well and looks great, and it doubles as a smart display thanks to the included charging dock. It also has solid speakers—a rare boon for a tablet. Pair it with a Bluetooth keyboard and you can do some work on it, though it’s intended more as a device for home use and play.

The iPad Air (8/10, WIRED Recommends) has Apple’s M1 processor, giving it laptop-grade power to crush almost any task you throw at it. It has a 10.9-inch LCD screen, Touch ID built into the power button, and support for the second-generation Apple Pencil (which is down to $89 right now). We strongly recommend you pair the iPad with a keyboard like the Smart Keyboard Folio or Apple’s Magic Keyboard.

Backpack and Tote Deals

Image may contain Backpack and Bag

Photograph: Moment

This is a camera bag, but you need to buy the camera insert separately. Without it, it’s still a perfectly great backpack. The rear pocket can fit a 16-inch laptop (barely), and there’s a stretchy side pouch to fit a water bottle. On the front, the vertical zippered pocket is great for storing smaller items, like chargers and battery packs. The Kodra fabric it’s made of is durable and has a double-layer waterproof coating. We’ve used it for more than two years, and it has held up well. 

It’s not the prettiest bag, but it’s lightweight, and the exterior is made of 100 percent recycled polyester ripstop with a water-resistant laminate. Even when it’s packed full, it feels slim. You can fit up to a 15-inch laptop in the suspended sleeve. 

Lo and Sons Hanover backpack

You’ll find this backpack in our Best Backpacks guide—and in our Best Recycled Bags guide, because it saves 22 used plastic bottles from landfills. It has a padded, detachable insert with four pockets inside, plus two water bottle pockets. 

Prefer a tote bag? This is the top pick in our Best Tote Bags guide. It distributes weight well, and there are tons of pockets for organization, plus a spot for a 16-inch laptop. There’s ample padding to protect all your gear, and the material is weatherproof recycled nylon. It zips closed to keep everything safe.   

Router Deals

Google Nest WiFi Pro on green backdrop.

Google Nest Wifi Pro

The Nest Wifi Pro (7/10, WIRED recommends) is one of those set-it-and-forget-it products. It’s super simple to set up and use with the Google Home app, where you can customize settings, set parental controls, and monitor network performance (if you even want to bother). This supports the Wi-Fi 6E standard, so it’s a little more future-proof, and the three-pack means you can set these around a large space (up to 2,200 square feet) to get balanced coverage (you can also just buy a single or two-pack). Read more in our Best Mesh Routers guide.

The Deco X20 is our best budget mesh Wi-Fi system pick. It has great parental control options, and while coverage and speeds are just OK, it was easy to set up the whole thing. It’s a dependable system and hard to beat at this price, especially on sale.  

This one from TP-Link is more powerful than the X20 and supports the newer Wi-Fi 6E standard. It’s easy to set up and delivers good performance, though the range can be limited. You can choose to go with the one-pack or three-pack as well, all of which are on sale. We have more details here.

Asus ROG Rapture GT6 mesh routers

This router (yes, it’s a router) has LEDs on the side, because how else would anyone know you’re a gamer? This tri-band router is one of the best-performing mesh routers we’ve tested and has features that let you prioritize traffic to gaming devices so you can get the smoothest experience in fast-paced online games. The price was $20 lower a couple of weeks ago, but we still think this is a worthy deal.

This Asus is not a mesh router, but it’s the best overall Wi-Fi 6E pick in our Best Routers guide (8/10, WIRED Recommends). It has reliable performance and tons of customization options in the mobile app and browser interface, and it comes with parental controls and network security with no need for a subscription. 

Phone and Accessory Deals

Belkin 3in1 Charging Stand for Apple Devices

Belkin 3-in-1 MagSafe Wireless Charger

Photograph: Belkin

This is our favorite MagSafe charger and one of the best wireless chargers on the market. I use mine every night and take it with me on every vacation. It can simultaneously charge compatible iPhones, AirPods, and Apple Watches. You can also purchase the stand version for the same price. The discount code (LDAY2023) should show automatically during checkout. 

The Pixel 7A (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite phone for most people. It has an exceptional camera system, flagship-grade performance, a nice 90-Hz OLED screen, IP67 water resistance, and super smart software that’s helpful. Plus wireless charging too! It’s hard to beat at its MSRP and this sale makes it even more of a steal. If you want to save even more, last year’s Pixel 6A is on sale for $299 ($50 off).

This deal was slightly better last week, but it’s still a great discount. The Pixel 7 Pro (8/10, WIRED Recommends) has more upgrades than the Pixel 7A, such as a larger, 120-Hz screen, a 5X optical zoom camera in addition to the primary camera and ultrawide, plus it has better battery life. The standard Pixel 7 is also on sale for $449 ($150 off) at Amazon and Target, and it shares many of the same features as the Pixel 7A with a slightly larger screen. Just know that a Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are expected to arrive this October.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 and Fold5 smartphones

Samsung Galaxy Fold5 and Flip5

Photograph: Samsung

The new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is a fun little flip phone. If you buy from Samsung directly, you can toggle on the Education Offers at the top for an extra 10 percent off, plus you’ll get upgraded to the 512-GB model. 

Samsung’s new Z Fold5 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) folds like a book and is great for multitasking. Buy it from Samsung directly to nab it for $1,530 when you toggle on the Education Offer, and you’ll get the 512-GB model.

This is one of the best deals we’ve seen on the A54 (8/10, WIRED Recommends). It lacks features like wireless charging, but you do get a microSD card slot to expand storage, decent performance, and close to two days of battery life. 

Sony LinkBuds

Sony LinkBuds.

Photograph: Sony

The Sony LinkBuds (8/10, WIRED Recommends) are some of our favorite wireless earbuds. The open design has a physical hole in the middle, which allows the wearer to hear what’s going on around them. That makes these especially good for activities like walking or riding your bike to class. 

We’ve seen this price a few times throughout the years, but the awfully named Sony WH-1000XM4 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) don’t tend to fall below $278. Adorama is throwing a free power bank from a no-name brand in with your purchase, though you can use other retailers like Amazon and Best Buy if you just want the discounted price. There’s a new generation of these headphones out, but the older model still make our list of the Best Noise-Canceling cans. 

These headphones regularly bounce between $279 and $329. The QC45 headphones are comfortable and have excellent noise cancellation. Find more recommendations in our Best Noise-Canceling Headphones guide.

Pixel Buds Series A

Google Pixel Buds A-Series.

This is a great price for our favorite wireless earbuds. The Google Pixel Buds A-Series (8/10, WIRED Recommends) have great sound, a comfortable fit, and Google Assistant built right in. We wish the battery lasted longer, but it’s hard to beat the value offered here. 

The Beats Studio Pro (7/10, WIRED Review) are new headphones and they’re already on sale. They have excellent noise canceling and good sound overall, but the controls and battery life aren’t the best, and we wish there was an adjustable EQ. This price makes their quirks easier to stomach. 

We recommend several OtterBox products in various buying guides. Right now if you buy any case or screen protector for an iPhone, you’ll save 15 percent. Read our Best iPhone 14 Cases guide for more recommendations.

You can get 10 percent off one product or 20 percent off two or more when you enter code BTS23TG at checkout. We recommend a few different products from Casetify. There are phone cases, tablet cases, laptop cases, and other fun accessories available in a huge variety of styles and prints. One standout is the Snappy Cardholder Stand—we haven’t tested it, but it’s a kickstand that doubles as single card storage, perfect for student IDs or dormitory keycards. 

These are some of our favorite wireless earbuds (9/10, WIRED Recommends), thanks to the excellent noise-canceling tech and the dual dynamic drivers that deliver clean sound. The fit is comfy, and you get up to five hours of listening time with active noise-canceling turned on. The IPX7 rating means it’s fine to use these in the rain or during sweaty workouts.  

This is one of the lowest prices we’ve tracked on the Galaxy S23+ (9/10, WIRED Recommends). It’s one of the best flagship phones you can buy today, with a sharp and bright 120-Hz AMOLED screen, good battery life, tons of power, and a triple-camera system that can consistently capture great photos. The smaller S23 is also on sale for $700 ($100 off).

More Tech Deals

Satechi aluminum iPad stand

Satechi Tablet Holder

Use code BTS30 to get 30 percent off Satechi’s accessories. Choose from chargers, cables, cases, and other tech peripherals. We recommend the tablet stand, wireless charging stand, and 3-in-1 charging stand to name a few gadgets. 

Even though it was $10 cheaper earlier in the week, this is a solid discount on the Garmin Venu Sq fitness tracker (8/10, WIRED Recommends). A newer version of this watch is available, but this original model is still capable, especially for the price. Learn more about it in our Best Garmin Watches guide.

This bad boy can fit so many plugs in it. There are twelve AC outlets, plus two USB-A ports and a USB-C port. The extension cord measures five feet long. If you and your two roommates simultaneously need to charge your phones, laptops, and tablets, you’ll still have three outlets left over. Imagine the possibilities. This is the cheapest price we’ve seen for this surge protector. 

Apple Watch Ultra

Apple Watch Ultra.

Photograph: Apple

The price will show at checkout. This is a match of the best deal we’ve seen for the Apple Watch Ultra (8/10, WIRED Recommends). A smartwatch makes a great school gift, but the Ultra is overkill. However, if you’re planning on playing sports or participating in intense physical activity, the extra-robust features might be worth the higher price, and it’ll last a full weekend on a single charge. Check out Best Apple Watch Accessories guide for straps, cases, and other goodies. 

This model is similar to our top pick in our USB-C hub buying guide. It turns a single USB-C port into a multi-port hub with HDMI, an SD card reader, and even a headphone jack. It also supports pass-through charging. 

We recommend this in our guide to the Best Work-from-Home Gear, but it’ll come in handy in a dorm room or first apartment too. It takes up a whole wall outlet, but it turns those two outlets into six. There’s also a USB-C port, a USB-A port, and an optional nightlight.

Amazon Fire Stick 4K Max

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max. 

Photograph: Best Buy

The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is one of our favorite streaming sticks for folks who don’t mind Amazon brazenly shoving its content into their face. Just plug it into the back of your TV and use the remote to scroll through a variety of streaming apps. You may also be able to get the non-4K version for $20, but that promotion is limited to specific Amazon accounts—and it’s worth the extra $7 to get 4K compatibility. 

“It’s like 10,000 cables when all you need is a wall charger,” or whatever Alanis Morissette said. It seems like you can never have enough wall adapters. Not only is this USB-C charger tiny, but it comes in a bunch of translucent colors like the tech of the ‘90s. It’s capable of delivering 30 watts—so it’ll probably charge up your phone, tablet, and other devices faster than whatever you’re currently using. 

This is the best-looking robot vacuum, and it performs well to boot. It has an automatic emptying feature and built-in storage for the various included accompaniments. It also has reliable navigational skills and strong suction. Let this robot do the cleaning while you do homework. 

Logitech MX Mechanical Mini keyboard

The price has dropped even more on this understated mechanical keyboard with low-profile keys. It’s wireless, and the battery lasts for a really long time if you don’t use the backlighting to light up the keys. It’s also super comfortable to type on. You can pair it with three devices and switch between them with the push of a button. 

This is featured as the best keyboard for most people in our Best MacBook Accessories guide. It was on sale for $150 earlier in the month, but this price is still okay. The built-in Touch ID button lets you log in and authenticate purchases. It also has the same function row keys as M-series MacBooks, plus a dedicated Do Not Disturb button and a number pad.

If you plan on spending $100 at Apple anytime soon, this is an easy way to get an extra $10 for your trouble. Apple gift cards can be used in-store or online, but they can also be redeemed in the App Store and elsewhere. If you subscribe to Netflix through your phone, for example, you can apply this gift card to your membership. 

The newest Echo Dot With Clock is our favorite Alexa speaker for the bedroom. The built-in digital clock combined with the power of Alexa makes this speaker a particularly great nightstand companion. Alexa might even be able to help with your homework.

This is another deal that matches the prices we saw during Prime Day. The stylish Amazon Echo Pop speaker (7/10, WIRED Review) isn’t the best-sounding in the Amazon Echo lineup—but it’s probably the cutest. The front-facing design is fine for a desk or a nightstand. Just don’t expect this gadget to set the mood for your next house party. 

Outlet space can be an issue. This gadget can help. It’ll turn a single wall outlet into three AC outlets, plus two USB-A ports and a USB-C port. We generally like Anker’s gear, and while it frequently goes on sale, this extender doesn’t usually fall below today’s deal price. 

Deals on Everything Else


Happy Planners

Photograph: The Happy Planner

Happy Planners make our favorite paper planners. Several different options are on sale right now. You can choose between various layouts, cover styles, and lengths. Prices start at $7.

I’ve never used these journals, but they have solid reviews and seem a bit like Moleskine knockoffs. Either way, $4 per notebook is a decent deal. There’s a little pocket on the inside cover, an integrated bookmark, and an elastic band closure. 

Prices start at 40 cents. Index cards, Crayola crayons, composition notebooks, and pencils are just a few of the things you can pick up for under a dollar. If you don’t have school-age kids, sales like this are an easy way to pick up supplies to donate to local classrooms or school supply drives. 

Cosori electric kettle

This kettle is featured in our guides to the Best Electric Kettles and the Best Dorm Gear. It boils water quickly, and the blue LED light shows you at-a-glance if your water is ready. Roommates will appreciate the lack of a shrill whistle.

Different colors are available at different retailers, so check another store if you don’t see the one you want. This itty-bitty Keurig takes up very little counter space, making it perfect for dorms or shared living spaces. I have one on my desk. It works exactly how you’d expect it to, though I prefer using an ecofriendly K-Cup and supplying my own coffee grounds. This price matches the deal we saw on Prime Day.

Target is offering discounts on throw pillows, with prices starting as low as $10. This includes floor pillows, which are great for adding seating to small spaces. I’ve purchased a few of them and they’re both comfortable and relatively durable.

Luna weighted blanket on blue background

Luna Weighted Blanket

Photograph: Luna

Use code LABORDAY20 at checkout to save. Luna is featured in our Best Weighted Blankets guide partially because of the sheer number of sizes, weights, and colors you can choose from. A weighted blanket can provide comfort when you’re feeling anxious or homesick—or your roommate is chewing with their mouth open again. Check out our list of early Labor Day Sales for more deals. 

Laundry detergent, toilet paper, disinfecting wipes, and other essentials are included in the massive selection of items. Choose at least $60 worth and you can get a $15 Amazon credit back with code BTSSTOCKUP. This deal is a great opportunity to save if you need to restock your frequently used items. 

This deal gets you a Costco Gold Star membership, plus a $45 Digital Costco Shop Card (which is basically a gift card you can redeem online or in-store). You’ll also get a coupon for $40 off an online order of $250 or more, but note that it expires in October. This deal is only valid for folks who haven’t had a Costco membership since at least March of this year. If you use the digital shopping card, this is essentially like getting a one-year Costco membership for $15.

Similar to the Amazon deal above, this is an easy way to restock essentials like cleaning supplies and health products. Your gift card will be sent via email once you place a qualifying order. Note that you need to claim the deal through Target Circle, which is free to join.

WIRED reviewer Brenda Stolyar swears by a similar water-filtering pitcher. It’ll filter impurities out of your tap water so you can cut back on single-use water bottles while staying hydrated. Replacement filters are pretty affordable as well. The pitcher might not fit in a mini fridge, but it should do the trick if you have a bit more space to work with. 

College students and teachers can get 20 percent off a qualifying purchase at Target through August 26. These deals are redeemed through Target Circle, which is free to join. Some items are excluded, but this is still an easy way to save on all sorts of essentials—especially if you’re placing a big order. 

You always need more power strips. This one has eight outlets, and each can rotate so that one bulky charging adapter won’t block the other outlet. Smart! 

22 Best Deals at Walmart’s ‘Plus Week’ Prime Day Sale (2023)

22 Best Deals at Walmart’s ‘Plus Week’ Prime Day Sale (2023)

Amazon Prime Day isn’t just an opportunity for Amazon to flex its muscle. Its arch-competitors get in on the action too, and Walmart has jumped into the fray with its Walmart Plus Week sales event. We found plenty of great Walmart deals on many of our favorite televisions, soundbars, wireless speakers, and more.

Note: Deals have now been opened to all shoppers and not just Walmart Plus members, as they were until 11:59 am ET today. Walmart Plus isn’t free to join. It typically costs $98 per year, but Walmart has a promotion right now that drops the price to $49 for your first year. It includes benefits like a bundled Paramount+ subscription, free delivery on orders over $35 (some products don’t have an order minimum), and more.

We test products year-round and handpicked these deals. Products that are sold out or no longer discounted as of publishing will be crossed out. We’ll update this guide periodically throughout Prime Day.

TV and Streaming Deals

Be sure to take a gander at our Best TVs and Best Streaming Devices guides. Our tips on How to Choose the Right TV might also be handy.



Photograph: TCL

This TV is currently our top recommendation for most people. It supports every major high dynamic range (HDR) format and can handle up to 120 frames per second while gaming. The downside (and this might not really be a downside) is that TCL replaced its excellent built-in Roku interface for Google TV, which looks nice and has every app you could want but is a little more sluggish.

TVs with OLED panels have pixels that act as their own backlight. These pixels have the ability to turn themselves off, giving you perfect black levels—darker than a typical LED screen. WIRED associate reviews editor Parker Hall says the C2’s 4K OLED display is “utterly gorgeous” and notes that it has some of the lowest input lag of any TV he’s ever seen. If you’re a gamer, that’s good news for you—it’ll handle gaming up to 120 Hz in 4K.

Chromecast with remote

Chromecast With Google TV (4K)

Photograph: Google

The Chromecast With Google TV (8/10, WIRED Recommends) comes with a well-designed interface that lets you watch channels directly on your TV without having to cast it from another device. There’s a remote control too. It has nearly every app you could want, and yes, you can still cast content from your phone or laptop if you prefer.

Roku is our favorite streaming service. The interface is quick and snappy, it’s easy to use, and there are no obnoxious attempts to push particular channels on the viewer (cough, looking at you, Amazon). This is the slightly cheaper version of our favorite in our Best 4K Streaming Devices guide. It doesn’t come with the hands-free voice control in its remote, but it’s razor-quick and has a good range on its wireless remote.

Soundbar and Audio Deals

Read our Best Soundbars, Best Bluetooth Speakers, and Best Speakers guides for other recommendations.

Vizio M Series 2.1 Soundbar

Vizio M-Series 2.1

Photograph: Vizio

For a soundbar without an included subwoofer, the M-Series 2.1 has surprisingly robust bass. It’s our go-to recommendation for a budget soundbar because it combines rich sound and sleek design at an affordable price. There’s an HDMI ARC connection that lets your TV remote control the volume. You can even use its Bluetooth connection to stream music to it.

Small as a hockey puck, you can take the Clip 4 practically anywhere. Just use the carabiner clip to attach it to your day hiking pack, bicycle handlebars, or folding chair on your way to the beach. It’s waterproof too, so you don’t have to sweat about pool water, rain, or, well, sweat.

Save space by bundling your streaming device right into your soundbar with the Roku Streambar. Not only does it include our favorite streaming service, through which you can stream practically any channel, but the audio quality is quite good for the price.

Platin 5.1 Surround System audio components

Photograph: Platin

WiSA technology lets this handsome, compact 5-channel system from Platin Audio (8/10, WIRED Recommends) stream and sync audio from a puck placed near your TV. The five small speakers and compact, under-couch subwoofer are made of beautifully woven cones and sleek, modern cases. It’s also incredibly simple to set up, needing only a power source for each speaker, plus an HDMI cable that plugs into the streaming puck.

This deal has ended at Walmart, but it’s still going at Amazon. Sennheiser’s first home soundbar, the Max, is also the best-sounding soundbar we’ve ever heard. The cheaper Plus on sale here has less bass and lacks the built-in voice assistant, but has the same 3D audio processing that enables it to fill up a room with rich, detailed sound in Dolby Atmos immersion.

This Sony speaker’s three up-firing drivers shoot sound all around your room rather than shooting audio straight at your ears, like most Bluetooth speakers. It also comes with Google Assistant and Alexa, plus Wi-Fi support, so you can shout your commands to it too.

Nest Doorbell

A big part of the reason why the Nest Doorbell came runner-up in our Best Video Doorbells guide was the price. For as long as this deal lasts, that won’t be a problem. This version operates off batteries rather than being wired directly into your home’s electrical system. You need to download the Google Home app, but if you want to retain 30 days of video history and smart alerts, you need to subscribe to Nest Aware, which costs $6 per month. Expect to get about a month of use between charges. The field of view isn’t the widest, but it’s wide enough, and its night vision offers solid video quality.

Cut back on your cooling and heating bill with a thermostat that learns your patterns so that it can crank down the HVAC when you’re away from home. You can also control it manually through the Google Home app. Like any smart thermostat, your home needs to have central heating and/or cooling for the Nest Thermostat to integrate.

Google Nest Hub

The 7-inch-screen Nest Hub (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is a solid option if you don’t need (or don’t want) the Nest Hub Max’s built-in camera. You still get all the same functionality of Google Assistant, as well as sleep tracking that’ll digest your sleep data (if you sleep close enough to it). It also supports gestures, so you can control many features (such as music playback) with simple hand movements. The 10-inch Nest Hub Max is also on sale for $190 ($40 off).

The Nest Audio (8/10, WIRED Recommends) may be a bit long in the tooth as far as smart devices go, but it still offers the excellent Google Assistant with a bold speaker that does a much better job at filling a room with rich, full bass than a typical Nest Hub or Nest Mini. Like all Google smart home devices, it integrates easily into a wide range of Google and non-Google smart devices that you can control through the Google Home app. Connect two and you can have a stereo setup.

The Nest Cam’s video quality is impressive, with HDR and 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second; as soon as it gets dark, the night vision kicks in. There’s also two-way audio, two-factor authentication, and accurate detection to alert you about people, animals, and vehicles. Through the Google Home app, you can control the cam’s settings and view the video feed. Unless you pay $6 per month for a Nest Aware subscription, you’re limited to three hours of history. Upgrading to Nest Aware gives you 30 days of event video history and familiar face alerts. It lacks a privacy shutter though.

Lodge Dutch Oven. 

Photograph: Lodge

The Dutch oven is one of the kitchen’s most versatile cooking tools. With them you can bake bread, simmer stews on the stovetop, roast chicken, and cook up casseroles. European legacy brands cost an arm and a leg, but this American-made Lodge cooks as well as any of them. The non-stick, enameled surface makes clean-up a breeze, and since you don’t have to immediately re-oil it after cleaning, like with a bare cast-iron piece of cookware, it takes less effort to maintain, too.

Lodge pans are one of our Buy It For Life picks for a reason. Over time, they form a non-stick cooking surface without relying on Teflon, and cast iron retains heat extraordinarily well. Fry, sauté, even bake a pan of cornbread inside the oven. 

Kitchen space is often tight. Once you’ve added the obligatory coffee maker, toaster oven, and microwave to your counters, small spaces are often left with little to work prep space. You can add room to set down utensils or mixing bowls with this bamboo workstation that you place over your stovetop burneres. One will cover half a typical stove. Get two for a continuous flat surface over all four burners.

Roborock Q5 robot vacuum and smartphone

Photograph: Roborock

The Roborock Q5+ (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite robot vacuum for several reasons. It’s simple to use, the app is easy to navigate, and the vacuum itself is incredibly reliable. It can also map multiple room types and designate different floor types for those rooms. The biggest downside is the price tag, which means you’ll want to grab one now.

This is our favorite budget standing desk and it has been working reliably for a few years now. The setup is a little complicated, but the desktop feels sturdy and elegant, despite being made of environmentally-friendly chipboard. You can save three height presets. 

We’re big fans of Fujifilm’s Instax line of cameras and printers. This is a good deal on one of our favorite printers. It offer good color rendition (for instant prints) and it’s easy to print from your phone thanks the Instax Link app. The has plenty of fun layouts and premade templates was well.

66 Best Prime Day Deals for Your Kitchen and Home (2023)

66 Best Prime Day Deals for Your Kitchen and Home (2023)

Homes are expensive. So are all the things we’d like to fill said homes with. But Amazon Prime Day is ripe with deals to pick up all your dream home goods—like a KitchenAid mixer, a robot mop-vac, a smart security camera, or a fantastic weighted blanket—at a better price. We’ve rounded up all the best Prime Day home and kitchen deals worth shopping for.

Note: Many of these deals may require a membership, including Amazon Prime, Target Circle, or Walmart Plus. Amazon Prime has a free 30-day trial if you don’t already have it (set a reminder to cancel it before it automatically renews). Target Circle is free to sign up, but you’ll need to save the offer to your account from the main offer page or on the actual purchase page for a particular item to see the deal price at checkout. Many of Walmart’s deals are in early access for subscribers but will be available for everyone later in the day.

Nutribullet Smart Touch Blender

Nutribullet Smart Touch Blender

Photograph: Nutribullet

The Nutribullet Smart Touch is a powerful, stylish addition to your kitchen, with a sleek touchscreen display that lights up against the blender’s black finish. It has plenty of options, allowing you to use this handy blender for smoothies, soups, purées, and frozen drinks. It can also handle hot liquids. And, this sale is a better deal than we’ve seen in recent months. 

KitchenAid stand mixers are pricey, but they’re a long-term investment that’s well worth it for many home chefs and bakers. This 4.5-quart version is a solid sale and a nice size for smaller kitchens and homes. This isn’t as good of a deal as we saw over Memorial Day, and we usually see prices dip a little lower during Black Friday if you aren’t in a hurry to own a KitchenAid.

Instant Pot makes some of our favorite pressure cookers and multicookers. While this isn’t one of our picks, this Instant Pot is nearly half off and has nine different abilities baked inside it: it can be a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, sauté pan, steamer, sterilizer and food warmer. It also comes with an extra sealing ring, a silicone egg rack, and a stainless steel steam rack.

CrockPot 7 Quart Oval Manual Slow Cooker


Photograph: Amazon

We haven’t tried this exact Crock-Pot model, but we have happily used others from this brand. A lot of people have gone the Instant Pot route, but I’m still a slow cooker gal. There’s nothing like the aroma of a meal that’s been cooking all day. This one should make enough to feed a family of seven. There’s a pretty sage green version for $30 ($20 off) as well.

According to the WIRED Gear Team, Stasher bags are a must for every home. The silicone reusable bags will replace disposable storage bags, cutting down on trash, and come in a variety of sizes to meet your household’s needs. And they’re safe for dishwashers, freezers, and microwaves.

We love Rezip’s reusable baggies as a cheaper alternative to Stasher bags. A variety of sizes are available for sale from Rezip right now, including the 8-piece bundle, 10-pack flat bags, 2-pack collapsible pet bowls, and 2-pack tall bags.

Braun MultiServe Coffee Machine

Just want a single cup of coffee? The Braun MultiServe Coffee Machine (8/10, WIRED Recommends) can brew up a full pot or a single cup, combining the advantages of a regular coffee machine and a Keurig. Bonus: It has a rare certification from the Specialty Coffee Association.

This deal isn’t an unusual price to see, but it’s still a fine deal on the Keurig. The Classic single-serve Keurig is $30 off, and the Duo model that can brew either a single cup or a pot of coffee is $60 off.

The Breville Barista Express is a longtime favorite of WIRED’s Gear Team, thanks to its sturdy, mostly-metal construction and easy cleaning. It’s great for espresso, steaming milk, and grinding beans, and lasts for years.

TPLink Archer AX21

TP-Link Archer AX21 Router

Photograph: TP-Link

As the best budget router you can buy right now, TP-Link’s Archer AX21 delivers reliable Wi-Fi 6 performance. It’s not the fastest and the range is limited for modest homes with a limited number of devices, there’s no need to spend more than this. The Tether app is straightforward and packed with all the basic options you need, including traffic prioritization, parental controls, and a guest network. It is regularly as low as $75 and has been $70, but we’ve never seen it this low.

This is our pick for the best router for most folks. It is a dual-band Wi-Fi 6 router that delivers stable, speedy Wi-Fi coverage for the average home. It has four gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, a single gigabit WAN port, and a USB 3.0 port on the back. TP-Link’s Tether app has all the options you are likely to need including guest network, traffic stats, and band splitting.

While most folks don’t need Wi-Fi 6E yet, this Deco mesh system from TP-Link is one of the most affordable ways to try the 6-GHz band. A 3-pack can cover up to 7,000 square feet, and it’s very easy to set up. This tri-band system will use the 6-Ghz band for backhaul by default but you can configure it to connect with a Wi-Fi 6E phone or laptop and get extremely high speeds within a short range of the router.

Three Eero 6 Plus mesh WiFi routers

Photograph: Eero

Amazon’s Eero mesh systems are designed to make life simple. They are easy to set up, work well, and double as smart home hubs. But remember that an Eero Plus subscription ($10 per month) is required for features like parental controls and advanced security. Included in our best mesh Wi-Fi routers guide, the Eero 6+ is the mesh for folks with up to 1 Gbps internet and a home smaller than 4,500 square feet. It has been this price before last Prime Day and around Black Friday, but never lower. The one and two packs are also on sale.

This Amazon bundle combines one of the best mesh Wi-Fi systems with one of the best streaming devices. The Eero Pro 6 (3-Pack) is a reliable mesh that will work well for folks with up to 1 Gbps internet and larger homes up to 6,000 square feet in size. This bundle has only been this low before in Lightning deals. It usually hovers between $350 and $450.

The Eero Pro 6E (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is Amazon’s most powerful mesh Wi-Fi system. It is easy to set up and use, delivers reliably speedy Wi-Fi, and doubles as a smart home hub. But parental controls and security software require a subscription starting from $10 per month and there are cheaper options. We have seen this three pack go as low as $420 before, but never as low as this. The one and two packs are also on sale.

The Nest Wifi Pro (7/10, WIRED Recommends) appears in our Best Mesh Routers guide as the ideal choice for folks seeking simplicity. If you just want your internet to work reliably and can’t be bothered to tweak settings, Google’s pill-shaped mesh routers will suit you. They use the 6-GHz band for backhaul and double up as smart home hubs with built-in Thread radios, Bluetooth LE (low Energy), and Matter support.

Skylight Frame

Skylight Frame

The large Skylight frame looks great on a tabletop. It’s an honorable mention in our Best Digital Photo Frames guide, but it’s not our favorite for image quality, especially for photos taken on a smartphone. This is a pretty good deal if you don’t mind losing a little detail. Both the 10″ and 15″ sizes of the Skylight frame are on sale.

This deal is only valid for in-store, pickup, or same-day delivery. Last year, the reward was only $10, so this is a nice $5 upgrade. It’s pretty easy to spend $50 on home products, especially if you’re in need of supplies like toilet paper and laundry detergent. May as well throw a Scrub Daddy in there too.

TUSHY Classic 3.0 Bidet

Tushy Classic 3.0

Photograph: TUSHY

If you want to get started with bidets without needing to add electricity or spend a lot of money, the Tushy Classic 3.0 is our recommended bidet. It’s easy to set up and start using, no power source required, and even comes in a variety of colors and knob finishes to perfectly match your bathroom. And it’s on sale for a little better price than we’ve seen so far this year.

If you want a great remote with Google Assistant built in, plus the ability to easily stream from your phone, 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. 

It’s been a while since we’ve tested a Eufy scale, but like most of Eufy’s products, we’ve found it to be attractive and versatile, even if it doesn’t have too many features. It’s the affordable price that usually seals the deal, however.

BLUEAIR Pure Fan Auto

Photograph: BlueAir

This air purifier and fan combo will look great in any room. It adds some coolness to the air it purifies, and it will cycle the air in a 326-square-foot room five times an hour. It can’t cool off an already toasty room, but it will feel nice if you’re sitting right in front of it, and it is fairly quiet. Read our Best Air Purifiers guide for more recommendations.

Inside scoop: this blanket will be in a gift guide later this year. WIRED reviewer Louryn Strampe loves these oversized blankets, so get one at a great deal before we tell the world about them.

Roborock Q5 robot vacuum and smartphone

Roborock Q5+. 

Photograph: Roborock

The Roborock Q5+ (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite robot vacuum for several reasons. It’s simple to use, the app is easy to navigate, and the vacuum itself is incredibly reliable. It can also map multiple room types and designate different floor types for those rooms. The biggest downside is the price tag, which means you’ll want to grab one now.

The Roborock S7 Max isn’t in our robot vacuums guide yet, but it still comes recommended by the Gear Team. The Roborock is good at mapping and is thorough and fast as it cleans. Just be sure to program it to vacuum before you mop, or else it tends to soak your floors.

Samsung’s Jet Bot AI+ has navigation worth writing home about—we’ve even seen it deftly dodge a sleeping dog while it cleaned the floor. It leaves about a 4-inch clearance around any obstacles (including large sleeping animals) so it isn’t great if you need a lot of edge cleaning. It’s a large vacuum with a massive tower, which we don’t like, but it’s quiet, fast, and powerful. It usually has a hefty price tag to match all those things, but you can find it for nearly half off right now.

Shark AI Ultra 2in1 Robot Vacuum with iPhone displaying Shark app on purple backdrop.

Shark AI Ultra 2-in-1 Robot Vacuum.

Photograph: Shark

We like the Shark AI Ultra 2-in-1 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) as an affordable option for a vac-mop combo. It maps your home quickly and accurately, won’t get your floors wet when it mops and is more compact than other vac-mop combos. And, right now, it’s even more affordable than it normally is and lower than most of the sales we’ve seen this year.

As other mapping robot vacuums have gotten exponentially better, Eufy’s maps have stayed … well, just a little wonky in our testing. However, this powerful twin turbine vacuum is perfect for basements with a lot of kids and dogs that need deep cleaning.

The Hoover OnePwr is one of our favorite cordless vacuums for a few reasons—including the fact that it stands on its own without assistance, which many cordless vacs don’t do. It’s both lightweight and powerful and picked up everything from cereal to litter with one pass on its medium setting. It’s also rarely on sale, so grab it for a lower price while you can.

Dyson V8 Cordless Vacuum

Dyson V8.

Photograph: Dyson

The Dyson V8 Origin on average sells for $350, and it has reached as low as $250 before during prior Black Friday sale events. Still, this is a lower price than you’d typically see, and if you can’t wait, it’s a solid vacuum. It’s a pared-down version of our budget Dyson pick, and you can read more about it in our Best Dyson Vacuums guide.

We haven’t tested this mop yet, as it’s a new version of Swiffer’s PowerMop, but WIRED reviewer Medea Giordano has her eye on the wood version. If you’re looking for a new mop for wood floors, you might want to check this one out.

The Wyze Cam Pan V3, our favorite panning indoor camera, features a smart design that can spin 360 degrees and tilt through 180 degrees. You can set waypoints for it to cycle through, it can track subjects, and there’s a privacy mode where the lens faces down. Video quality is decent at 1080p and 20 frames-per-second, but sound quality is poor. Similar to other Wyze cameras, you need a microSD card for local recording unless you want to subscribe to Cam Plus for $2 a month.

Security camera

Wyze Outdoor V2 Camera.

Photograph: Amazon

Our pick for the best budget outdoor security camera, the Wyze Cam Outdoor V2 records in full HD and comes with a base station for local video recording, which means there’s no need for a cloud subscription. The Wyze app is quick to load and offers scheduling for recordings, a customizable detection zone, and two-way audio. But the downsides of this camera include low frame rate and lack of HDR, and you’ll need a microSD card for local recording unless you want to subscribe to Cam Plus for $2 a month.

The Arlo Essential Indoor Camera, one of our favorite indoor security cameras, features a compact design, clear video, two-way audio, and a privacy shutter. There’s also expansive smart home integration and proper security with 2FA. But there’s no local storage and you need a subscription starting from $5 a month to get cloud storage and top-notch smart alerts. Grab this two-pack for half off while you can. 

Currently top of our Best Video Doorbells guide, the Arlo Essential Wired Video Doorbell offers an expansive 180-degree view of your front porch, delivers swift notifications, and records detailed video day or night. Arlo’s notification system is a cut above the rest, and a ring to the doorbell can even trigger a phone call to your phone.

Arlo security camera

Arlo Pro 4 Outdoor Security Camera.

Photograph: Arlo

Crystal-clear footage, speedy loading, and excellent smart notifications make this one of the best outdoor security cameras you can buy. It was only knocked off the top spot in our guide by its successor, the Pro 5. The Pro 4 is still a top camera and a two-pack will likely be enough to keep a watchful eye on your property. But you will need an Arlo Secure subscription at $13 per month to unlock cloud storage and all the best features. While it has been as low as $130 before, this is the lowest price we’ve seen.

We haven’t tested the floodlight version of Google’s outdoor Nest Cam, but we’re fans of the regular version (which is also on sale), so if your home is controlled by Google and you want a floodlight with your outdoor security camera, go with this version.

Get started with smart bulbs with one of our favorite smart light starter kits from Philips Hue. It comes with three bulbs, a smart button switch to control them with, and a hub to connect these and future Philips Hue devices to. You can also control these with a voice assistant like Alexa or Google, and create preset scenes. It’s a better sale than we’ve seen in a while for this kit, making it a better investment than usual.

Blink Mini

Photograph: Amazon

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 downside is 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. 

The smartest indoor security camera in town is Google’s indoor Nest Cam. It’s got HDR, automatic night vision when the lights turn out, two-way audio, enforced two-factor authentication, and accurate detection to alert you about people and pets. Plus, it comes in a few finishes to blend in with your home. You will need a Nest Aware subscription, which starts at $6 per month for 30 days of event video history and familiar face alerts. The latter is especially handy, since it will let Nest notify you about which person it sees in your home (or if it’s an unfamiliar face).

If your home is controlled by Google Assistant, or you use a Google Chromecast, the best outdoor security camera for you is the Nest Cam. It just has a simple mounting plate to install, so it’s a good choice for both homeowners and renters alike. It has a 130-degree field of view, HDR, night vision, a microphone, and a clear speaker. Like other Nest Cams, you’ll need a Nest Aware subscription, which starts at $6 per month for 30 days of event video history.

Google Nest doorbell

Photograph: Google

The only reason Nest’s video doorbell isn’t the top pick in our Best Video Doorbell Cameras guide is because of the price tag. Which means this shopping holiday is the perfect time to snag one. It’s easy to mount, and easy to remove and charge the battery (make sure to hold onto Google’s charger, since we’ve found that off-brand chargers raise charging time from 5 hours to 15 hours). It has an expansive view, night vision, and great notifications. And, like other Nest cameras, you’ll need a Nest Aware subscription, which starts at $6 per month for 30 days of event video history and familiar face alerts.

If you want a camera-free version of our favorite smart display, and don’t mind a smaller screen, now’s the time to strike. The second-gen Nest Hub (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is small enough to fit on small side tables and spaces, and if you add it to your bedside table, it can even track your sleep.

The latest Nest Thermostat isn’t quite as smart as the original Nest Learning Thermostat, meaning it doesn’t learn and adapt to your habits, but you can still set schedules. It’ll also turn itself down when you leave your home, saving you energy, and you can control the temperature via the app. If you like how Google runs its smart home, we think you’ll like this.

Brooklinen Weighted Blanket on pink backdrop

Brooklinen Weighted Blanket

Brooklinen’s weighted blanket is a great choice if you’re looking for something larger—the 12-pound blanket is one of the biggest options from our weighted blankets guide. It’s textured and comes in a range of beautiful colors. But the best part (besides the fact that it’s on sale right now) is that it has a fantastic return policy—you have an entire year to decide if it’s the blanket for you.

If you’re looking for fantastic organic cotton sheets, don’t miss out on this deal. The Brooklinen Organic Core Sheet Set is a favorite from our organic mattresses and bedding guide. These sheets have a 300-thread count and are soft without being overly silky.  Made from Global Organize Textile Standard (GOTS)-certified organic cotton, these sheets are also Oeko-Tex certified, so there are no (known) toxic chemicals here.

Nothing says luxury (or big Tony Soprano energy) like a plush robe. Brooklinen’s super-plush robe has thick material and deep pockets that made our reviewer feel like they were staying in a luxurious hotel rather than just hanging out at home.

Shark HyperAIR hair dryer bundle

Shark HyperAir Blow Dryer.

Photograph: Shark

Shark doesn’t just make vacuums. The HyperAir is one of our favorite hair dryers because it offers a variety of attachments, which come in bundles for sleek blowouts (an air concentrator and a brush) or defined curls (an air concentrator and a diffuser), and both options are on sale. An extra bonus with the HyperAir has a 2-in-1 air concentrator that can expand or shrink, so you can adjust it based on your needs, rather than having two separate sizes like most hair dryers. 

This is a great deal on one of our favorite hair straighteners—the Smooth+ a slightly larger version of the Style+ that we recommend, but besides the size they’re exactly the same. And, it’s the cheapest price we’ve seen on either model in a few months. 

dyson hair straightener

Dyson Corrale

Photograph: Dyson

We love the Dyson Corrale (8/10, WIRED Recommends), but it’s extremely expensive. It makes you feel fancy like all Dyson tools tend to do, and its flexing plates quickly get your hair straighter with less heat—they curve around the hair, avoiding the splaying-out effect and uneven heat distribution that plague other flat irons. Still, it has flaws for a $500 hair straightener. It can be used without a cord, but the battery life is too short to straighten my whole head of hair. The onboard battery also makes it quite heavy, and only the blue color is on sale. 

This hair dryer is effortless to use, thanks to the lightweight, plastic design. It has multiple heat and speed settings. The only downside is there’s no diffuser, so this is a great deal for anyone who isn’t looking to diffuse their curls while they blow dry.

Theragun Mini Massage Gun. 

Photograph: Therabody

The Theragun Mini is the minimalist Theragun’s family of massage gun devices—it’s smaller and lighter, so it’s easier to bring somewhere and is more affordable than the rest of Theragun’s offerings. And the Mini still offers 20 pounds of pressure. It’s a better deal than we’ve seen lately, but only by $10.

We love the Theragun Pro (5th gen) for serious athletes, and the on-sale 4th gen is still great even if it’s not the newest version—the main difference we noticed between the two models was that the 5th gen is a little quieter. While it’s not the lowest price we’ve seen lately, it’s still a great price at just over 40 percent off.

We haven’t tested the Prime, but its specs place it in the middle of Theragun’s massage gun options. It packs 30 pounds of force, 10 more than the Mini but half as much as the Pro. This is the best deal we’ve seen in a while on the Prime, so if you’re looking for a good middle ground of features and power, this is a good time to grab this Theragun model.

Tymo Ring hair straightener

Photograph: Tymo

We often see the Tymo hair straightener brush for around $60, but this is still a solid deal. We recommend the regular one in our Best Hair Straighteners guide that’s $50 (and almost always 10 percent off), but this is the new version and has nine heat settings rather than just five, has denser brush teeth and ions.

Love the design of Dyson’s hair dryer, but don’t want to drop that much cash? We recommend the Laifen in our Best Hair Dryers guide as a cheaper dryer with a similar design. And now it’s even cheaper for the same style. It’s not as nice as the Dyson, but our writer still enjoyed using it.

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.

We thought the price tag on this comfortable wearable breast pump (8/10, WIRED Recommends) was a little scary, but the convenience was worth it. It’s even more worth it at this discount.

Lovevery is one of our favorite gift subscription boxes for kids, but it’s normally super expensive. The beautiful, high-quality toys are plastic-free and will last forever, and now you can get it for a little cheaper than usual.

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 that are included in the box are irresistibly cute and perfect for little hands. 

This stroller will be one of our top recommendations soon in our Best Strollers guide. It has the benefits of a jogging stroller with great suspension and nice wheels, but still folds down nicely and flat (though it won’t stand on its own while folded) and is slim enough to use for city walks and shopping. It’s one of the best strollers out there for the money already, so don’t miss a chance to get it for even cheaper.

Litter Genie cat litter box

Litter Genie.

Photograph: Amazon

This price is only available for in-store, pick-up, and same-day delivery. If you have a cat, a Litter Genie is a lifesaver. Scoop clumps into the top compartment, then open a hatch to drop those clumps to the bottom where they stay odor-free (for two weeks or so) or until you empty it. No more daily trips to the garbage! You do have to commit to buying refill bags, though.

Several pet toys and accessories we like are discounted too, like the SmartyKat Karrot Kicker Cat Toy and the Boots & Barkley Cat Wave Scratcher. But because of the in-store only offers, some of the deals are deceiving. This cat tree, for example, says it’s included in the 20 percent off, but isn’t sold in stores, so when you go to checkout, the discount isn’t factored into your total.

We haven’t tested this scratching post, but it’s a good kind of scratcher to have around the house if you’ve got cats. Check out our Best Cat Toys and Supplies guide for more.

Score one of the best electric scooters you can for a steal. It already offered some of the best range for the money, meaning it’s even better right now. WIRED reviews editor Julian Chokkattu frequently got around 15 miles out of the scooter, and found it to be a comfy ride with its 9.5-inch tubeless tires.

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 this deal out.

30 Best Early Amazon Prime Day Deals 2023: Pixel Phones, Amazon Devices, and Robot Vacuums

30 Best Early Amazon Prime Day Deals 2023: Pixel Phones, Amazon Devices, and Robot Vacuums

since 2015, Amazon has held at least one Prime Day per year. It’s the annual sales event where the retailer slashes prices on thousands of products across its online storefront (and triggers similar sales on other retailers too). Prime Day, over time, has become two full days of shopping instead of one, and in 2022 there were two Prime Day events, one in the summer and one in the fall (because money). This year’s Prime Day event falls on July 11 and 12, starting at 3 am Eastern time. 

You need to be a Prime subscriber to take advantage of the discounts (here’s a free 30-day trial; set a reminder to cancel it before it automatically renews), but there are plenty of deals for anyone who isn’t a member. WIRED will be scouring the platform to bring you the best deals throughout the event, but there’s good news: Price drops have already started. We rounded up the best early Prime Day deals we’ve found right here—on Amazon and other retailers—and we’ll keep this story updated. Our Prime Day Shopping Guide is full of tips to help you navigate the event like a pro.

Updated July 8, 2023: We’ve added new deals and crossed out expired ones.

Google Pixel 7A

The brand-new Pixel 7A is our favorite Android phone for most people (8/10, WIRED Recommends). Now, for the same price, this bundle also gets you the Pixel Buds A-Series, our favorite wireless earbuds. The phone is powerful, and it has wireless charging and a nice bright screen—oh, and some of the best cameras you’ll find for the money. It’ll be supported for years to come, so you won’t have to upgrade anytime soon. 

Enter code TOTALPRIME at checkout to see the discount. It applies to every option Totallee sells on Amazon. We like these thin cases. They’re mentioned in our Best iPhone 14 Accessories guide. They aren’t going to protect your phone from most drops, but they do keep away scratches and scuffs and the usual wear and tear. The thin cases are sleek enough that they don’t interfere with MagSafe or wireless charging. They’re perfect for anyone who hates using a case but wants some protection. 

Casetify’s sale features new products being added every day from now through Prime Day, though the discounts are only for Prime subscribers. Select phone cases for different devices will be on sale at up to 35 percent off. We recommend several Casetify products in our Best iPhone 14 Cases guide, and they make excellent if pricey cases for Pixel and Samsung phones too. They’re protective but are also immensely stylish.  

Anker MagGo 637

Clip the on-page coupon to see the discount at checkout. We love Anker’s MagSafe wireless chargers. This one doubles as a power strip for your desktop or living room. It features three AC outlets on the back, two USB-A ports, and two USB-C ports, one of which is capable of outputting 65 watts of power (enough to recharge a MacBook). WIRED reviews editor Julian Chokkattu has been using it for the past year with no issues. 

This is one of the lowest prices we’ve tracked on this solid-state drive. You can pop it into your PC if you have an M.2 drive, or into a PlayStation 5 to expand your storage. Other sizes are on sale, and so is the version without the heat sink. This one packs plenty of storage space and is super fast—we recommend it in our How to Build a PC guide. WIRED reviews editor Julian Chokkattu just added this to his PC and it has been working flawlessly. 

Moft’s Smart Desk Mat is a folding desk mat that can balance your laptop or tablet, and you can snap your phone onto the wireless charger as you work. There are three bundles of the Desk Mat, which each have different accessories—the Smart Paper Kit, the Digital Kit, and the Full Kit, all of which are on sale for 10 percent off using coupon code Summer10.

Kindle Paperwhite Kids Edition

This is our favorite Kindle for kids. It’s waterproof and has a warm backlight that can make reading in the dark easier. It also includes a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+, which is an age-appropriate content library that has built-in parental controls. You’ll also get a protective case and a two-year no-questions-asked replacement guarantee. If your kid runs over their e-reader with a dirtbike or throws it out the window, Amazon will send you a new one. 

We think the Fire HD 10 is a better device overall, but when it comes to value, the Fire HD 8 (6/10, WIRED Review) is hard to beat—especially with this deal, which is a match of the best we’ve tracked. The Fire HD 8 tablet has similar bells and whistles to the Fire HD 10, but the smaller display isn’t as nice. It remains a good option for kids or anyone who wants a screen larger than a phone to watch movies on the go. Read more in our Best Amazon Fire Tablets guide. 

The Amazon Echo Buds (8/10, WIRED Recommends) are made for Alexa fans. These earbuds have good sound and a great app, but the real standout is how easy it is to use Alexa while wearing them. You can have Alexa integrated so it’s easy to ask for the weather, set a timer, and check your calendar.

Make sure you click “See All Buying Options” to see the deal. Our favorite portable charger for tablets can fully recharge an 11-inch tablet twice, while still being slim enough to fit into the padded sleeve of most backpacks. (It can also charge a laptop in a pinch, though it won’t work for something powerful like a MacBook Pro.) It has USB-C and USB-A ports and an LED display that shows you the percentage of power remaining in the bank.

The Apple Watch Series 8 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite Apple Watch. (The 41-mm version is also on sale for $329.) Most people will be fine with the new second-generation Watch SE, but this model includes an electrocardiogram, an always-on display, a skin temperature sensor for better period tracking, a more accurate heart-rate monitor, and the ability to measure blood oxygen levels. Check our Best Apple Watch Accessories guide to make the most of your smartwatch. 

Our favorite Fire tablet, the Fire HD 10 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is the fastest and biggest tablet in Amazon’s lineup. There are better tablets out there for more money, but it’s decently powerful and is great for watching shows and movies or reading books through Amazon Prime and other Amazon memberships. It’s the best you’ll find under $200, and right now you can get it for under $100. We certainly like it a whole lot more than the new Fire 11 Max.

Household, Smart Home, and Entertainment Deals

Roborock Q5 robot vacuum and smartphone

Roborock Q5+

The Roborock Q5+ (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite robot vacuum for several reasons. It’s simple to use, the app is easy to navigate, and the vacuum itself is incredibly reliable. It can also map multiple room types and designate different floor types for those rooms. The biggest downside is the price, which is more reasonable now.

Enter code SUMMER at checkout to see the discount. Branch makes some of our favorite home office gear, including our top office chair recommendation. It has plenty of adjustable features, so you can contour it to your body, and it happens to look really nice. With the same code, you can also get our second favorite, the Branch Verve chair for $494 ($55 off), or the Branch Standing Desk for $629 ($70 off).

Just want a single cup of coffee? The Braun MultiServe Coffee Machine (8/10, WIRED Recommends) can brew up a full pot or a single cup, combining the advantages of a regular coffee machine and a Keurig. Bonus: It has a rare certification from the Specialty Coffee Association.

Amazon Fire Stick 4K Max

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max

This deal matches the price we saw during Cyber Monday last year. It’s also the best price we’ve seen. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is our top streaming stick recommendation for folks that want to use Amazon’s software when streaming. Amazon-owned content is featured more heavily than you’d find with a Roku or other streaming stick, but if you don’t mind that, this deal is worth checking out. You can also get the Fire TV Stick 4K for $23, but we recommend spending the extra two bucks to get the 4K Max. 

The Echo Studio is featured in our Best Smart Speakers guide as the best-sounding model with Alexa baked in. We just wish the shape wasn’t so … awkward. If you want a speaker that can fill a room with bass-heavy sound and tell you the current temperature of a city halfway across the globe, the Echo Studio is a solid pick. 

This deal price is $5 higher than the lowest we have tracked. The fourth-generation Amazon Echo (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is the best Alexa speaker overall. The round design is pleasing and fills a space with 360 degrees of sound. In our Best Smart Speakers guide, we commend this model for its compact footprint and ease of use. 

Amazon Echo Pop

The Amazon Echo Pop (7/10, WIRED Review) is a brand-new smart speaker that’s super stylish, with a wide array of color options to choose from. The only catch is that the sound is front-facing. If you’re used to the robust-ish surround-ish soundscapes of the hockey puck-shaped Amazon Echo Dot, the Pop may not be your favorite. But at $18, now is an easy time to check it out. 

The newest Echo Dot With Clock is our favorite Alexa speaker for the bedroom. The built-in digital clock combined with the power of Alexa makes this speaker a fantastic nightstand companion. Set alarms, check the weather, and listen to white noise with the help of a compact little sphere. You can get the model without a clock for a few bucks less if you would rather holler at Alexa to check the time instead. 

This deal price matches one of the best we’ve tracked. We recommend this plug in our Best Smart Plugs guide. It’s especially great for people who prefer Alexa to other smart-home assistants. You can control the plug with Alexa or with the Alexa app, no need to download another app if you already have Alexa devices in your home. The smart plug supports routines, vacation mode, and more. I use it to turn off my box fan in the morning so I don’t fall back asleep after hitting snooze for the seventh time. 

Amazon Echo Show 8

This is our favorite Alexa smart display. The size is just right—not too big and not too small. The screen is sharp, and the functionality is as convenient as you would expect. It can display the weather, timer countdowns, workout videos, and more. We especially like the physical camera shutter. The speaker is pretty good too. 

If the Echo Show 8 is the perfect size, and the Echo Show 10 is a little too big, then the Echo Show 5 is a little too small. It will do just fine on a nightstand or desk, but the screen is simply too tiny to be useful for tasks like checking out a recipe or watching the news. Read more about it in our Best Smart Displays guide. 

This received an honorable mention in our Best Smart Displays guide. The display itself swivels on top of a cylindrical speaker, which means it can keep you in frame if you use it for a video call, or show you recipe videos as you move around the kitchen. That convenient feature can also be a bother—when it comes to placement, you’ll need to consider your options carefully, lest the screen bump into a wall or nearby object. 

This deal price is over $10 lower than what we saw during the most recent Prime Day sale. The Blink Mini received an honorable mention in our Best Security Cameras guide. It offers decent video, two-way audio, and motion detection. Alexa is also built in. One caveat is that some features, like unlimited video recording and extended live view, are locked behind a subscription that starts at $3 per month.

The price drop will only show up after you add the product to your cart. This is the first and best discount we’ve seen for the newest installation in the Legend of Zelda series. Play as Link and search for Princess Zelda to uncover the mysteries of the kingdom in the sky. It’s very similar to Breath of the Wild but offers many quality-of-life improvements. Read our full review here. 

This air purifier and fan combo will look great in any room. It adds some coolness to the air it purifies, and it will cycle the air in a 326-square-foot room five times an hour. It can’t cool off an already toasty room, but it will feel nice if you’re sitting right in front of it, and it is fairly quiet. Read our Best Air Purifiers guide for more recommendations.

We haven’t tried these oven mitts, but we’ve had great experiences with KitchenAid products, and $7 is $7. These are the mini kind, which means they only really cover your fingers. They’re good for pulling small pans off the stove, but not for carrying a hot skillet when you’re grilling out. The silicone grip will help you keep a tight hold on whatever you’ve got.  

This is our favorite mesh Wi-Fi option for folks with larger homes. It’s a three-pack and offers three gigabit Ethernet ports on the main router and two on the nodes. Setup can be tricky, but once you’re up and running, the speeds, coverage, and stability are excellent. Read more in our Best Mesh Wi-Fi Systems guide.

The Eero Pro 6E (7/10, WIRED Recommends) Wi-Fi system is easy to set up and use and has reliable, speedy performance. If you’re already an Eero user, it’s compatible with other Eero devices, and it can also be a smart-home hub, thanks to included Zigbee and Thread support. The one-pack, two-pack, and three-pack options are all on sale for Prime subscribers. 

Personal Care Deals

Shark HyperAIR hair dryer bundle

Shark HyperAir Blow Dryer Sleek Bundle.

We’ve seen this drop down to $150 before, but this is still a good discount on one of our favorite hair dryers. You can also save on the green color. This bundle includes a concentrating nozzle and a round brush, so it’s great for blowout styles. Shark also sells a curly bundle, which is on sale at Walmart for $160 ($70 off). You’ll get a diffuser for curly styles and a concentrating nozzle for straighter styles. 

The Dyson Corrale (8/10, WIRED Recommends) delivers fantastic, silky results on even super curly hair, but that performance comes at a price. This is why seeing it on sale right now is extra exciting.

This cheap electric toothbrush is even cheaper right now. The Philips One is slim enough to feel like a regular toothbrush and has gentle vibrations if you aren’t looking for something powerful. It comes with a small case for traveling. Select colors are on sale. 

Parenting Deals

Ergobaby baby carrier

Photograph: Ergobaby

It’s easy to see why the Ergobaby Omni 360 is such a popular baby carrier. It can adjust to carry kiddos as little as a newborn and up to 45 pounds, and it can be worn in a variety of positions. It’s lightweight and comfortable, and though it’s not as sleek as some carriers, it provides plenty of support without feeling overly bulky. As a bonus, it comes with a little detachable storage pouch so you aren’t left balancing the baby, the carrier, and a bag.

Most wearable breast pumps are pretty pricey. The Imani i2 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is one of the cheapest to get the job done—and it has the FDA approval you want in a breast pump. It’s ultra-minimalist, though, with no screen and just a few buttons on the top of the pump, so you’ll need to track pumping time and the mode you’re using. And the parts aren’t dishwasher safe. But otherwise, it’s a great pump that will deliver what you need most.

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, with items ranging from pet food and school supplies to pantry staples and household essentials. Need to restock on dish soap, granola bars, doggy bags, or vitamins? It’s worth checking this deal out. 

Enter coupon code PRIME10 to save 10 percent on orders over $12 (up to $10 off). All Amazon Prime members are eligible for a free one-year Grubhub+ membership. You can get free delivery on orders over $12. This promo ends on July 10. 

Select Amazon Prime members who upload a photo for the first time are eligible for a free $15 Amazon credit when they spend $30 or more. Not all customers qualify; this page can help you figure out whether you’re able to get in on the deal. We don’t hate Amazon Photos, and we certainly don’t hate “free” money. 

If you’re eligible for this deal, you’ll need to click the big yellow button that says “Activate this offer to your account.” Then, choose and purchase an eGift card worth at least $50. You’ll get a $5 credit to your email on the same day as your gift card purchase. Amazon eGift cards can be sent to yourself via email, so if you’re going to be spending $50 at Amazon any time soon, this is an easy way to snag an extra five bucks. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to use the $5 credit before August 25 or it’ll expire.
