Amazon Prime Day has arrived, and while it may not be the luxury sales event of the year, even the most discerning and discriminating shoppers will find lots to appreciate during the annual event.
One of the ways the e-commerce giant will achieve that is by offering really appealing deals. This year, the retail giant is offering savings of up to 50 percent off on everything from electronics to audio equipment, home entertainment essentials and even smartphones.
But here’s the catch. These deals are only available to Amazon Prime members. If you don’t already subscribe to the service, which waives shipping fees (and gives you access to countless films, TV shows and other content through Prime Video), you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here. If you need more convincing, take a look at some of our favorite Prime Day 2020 ideas below.

Samsung 4K UHD The Premiere Projector
Got designs on making your living room rival the local multiplex? Samsung’s Premiere projector, which can make a screen of up to 120 inches wide appear on a blank wall, might help you do just that. The device can create a crystal clear 4K UHD picture, and its onboard smart TV system will let you stream your favorite movies and TV shows seamlessly. It’s even got Amazon Alexa, so you can ask it to find programming for you hands-free—which will make it that much easier to get your popcorn handled before showtime.
Apple AirPods Pro
There’s a reason so many audio manufacturers have come out with so-called AirPod killers in the past several years: The real McCoy just works—especially if you’re an iPhone user. Right now, you can save $60 on the wireless earbuds that started a revolution.
Shark IQ Robot Vacuum
We wouldn’t blame you if cleaning your home yet again is the last thing you want to do—especially after a year of looking at the same four walls and floors. But Shark’s smart robot vacuum can take at least some of the work out of quotidian cleaning. The device will create an intelligent map of your home that’ll help it clean quickly and efficiently (you can tell it which rooms to skip, for example), and its extra-large canister only requires emptying every 45 days. Otherwise, it’s a more or less hands-off cleaning experience.
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700
Heading back to an open-plan office may mean you can’t blast Phish the way you do at home. Luckily, Bose’s excellent 700 headphones are $100 off—and in addition to amplifying your favorite tunes, they’ll cancel out the noise of your talkative coworkers when you’re trying to focus.
GE Profile Opal Countertop Nugget Ice Maker
One surefire way to be the coolest house on the block? Get a nugget ice maker. Not only will it help your guests keep their drinks cool during blazing hot backyard barbecues, but it’ll also mean you never have the leave the house to experience a full cup of drive-in quality soda or a professionally made mint julep.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G
If you’re in need of a new phone, Samsung’s standard-setting Galaxy S20 is nearly 30 percent off—and its excellent camera couldn’t be better primed to help you document getting back into the world after a long stretch in lockdown.
Le Creuset Skinny Griddle
Still wary about indoor dining? There’s no reason you can’t still enjoy chef-grade pancakes, smash burgers and other griddled foods at home. Le Creuset’s skinny griddle offers all of the heat retention and even cooking that its famous Dutch ovens bring to home cooks—and because they’re made of the same enameled cast iron, they’re equally easy to clean.
