The Cheapskate’s favorite Prime Day deals: Top picks starting at $17

I are inclined to get jaded on the subject of Prime Day (and Black Friday as effectively), as a result of I monitor smokin’ offers all 12 months spherical. It is my bailiwick. That stated, there are some real standouts this 12 months, some merchandise slashed to their lowest costs on file — which subsequently makes them worthy of your time.

All these merchandise can be found as of this morning, Oct. 13. I will be updating this checklist if any worthwhile newcomers cross my radar or if something sells out — which is a particular chance.

One fast tip: In the event you’re shopping for any Amazon units as we speak, ensure to swing by cash-back service TopCashback, which is presently providing 8% back on nearly all Amazon devices. (Yep, that may be on high of the 5% you’d get through the use of Amazon’s Prime Rewards Visa card.) Within the meantime, when you discover any killer Prime Day offers of your personal, make sure you share them within the feedback!

It is not simply Amazon that has Prime Day specials. Living proof: The one finest Galaxy S20 deal so far comes from Seen. The service is chopping over $400 off the common value of the flagship cellphone, which usually sells for $984 (and $1,000 elsewhere). You may get out the door for $768, then obtain a $200 pay as you go MasterCard after two months of Seen service at $40 a month.

You may additionally obtain a $200 Samsung present card you need to use to purchase different goodies. All that is predicated on porting your quantity to Seen as a part of your buy. Nonetheless, it is a incredible deal.

Harman Kardon

One other all-time-low from one other retailer that is not Amazon! The Onyx Studio Four is a top-rated moveable speaker can play for as much as eight hours on a cost and has a built-in noise-canceling microphone in case you wish to use it for cellphone conferencing. It additionally helps you to maintain two units linked (cellphone and pill, maybe), a pleasant perk.

PJDM hasn’t reviewed the Onyx Studio 4, however it has a 4.7-star common from over 2,000 Amazon consumers and a 4.6-star common from the person evaluations collected by Google.

Amazon vendor: EarFun US

Value: $38.99 with on-page 20%-off coupon and promo code EFAIRPR1

A earlier EarFun product, the EarFun Free, is a PJDM favourite, providing stable sound and a few nice options. The brand new EarFun Air retains the USB-C and wireless-charging choices, however mimics the AirPods’ pipe design and provides in-ear detection. Which means if you take an earbud out, your music auto-pauses. Nice function.

Cheapskate Jr. has been testing these for a pair months. An early-release set had minor points, however a more moderen alternative solved all of them. His verdict: “These are the right earbuds.” (Granted, he has low requirements.) My take? Wonderful worth for the cash.


The all-around nice MyQ (I’ve used one for years) has by no means been priced this low earlier than, and this all-time-low deal is all of the extra superb when you think about it initially value over $100.

However this is the very best half: In the event you resolve to make use of it for Amazon In-Storage Supply, you’ll be able to get a $30 credit after your first order by making use of promo code KEY30 when putting that order. That greater than covers the price of the MyQ itself.

No query, the lovable Echo Show 5 for $45 is an amazing deal, however if you wish to use it anyplace aside from your nightstand, I believe you may need a greater display. The Echo Present eight has by no means been priced this low earlier than, and I would be stunned if we ever see it go decrease.

If there’s one factor the pandemic has taught me, it is the significance of getting good gear within the kitchen. Oxo’s non-stick frypan is broadly thought to be top-of-the-line available on the market, and it by no means goes on sale. So this is a uncommon alternative to get a deal.

The pan features a lid and a 10-year guarantee. One factor to notice: It is supposed for hand-washing solely. (I like to recommend that for all non-stick pans, only for the file.)

That is the primary time the Hearth HD 10 has been priced under $100. At $80, I’ve no selection however to rank it as top-of-the-line pill offers ever. Large high-def display, quick processor, expandable storage, stereo audio system, USB-C charging… shall I am going on? Type of makes you scratch your head on the considered paying $329 for a 10-inch iPad.

Sure, it is advisable to be an Amazon Prime subscriber to essentially benefit from it. However even when you’re not, it is a succesful pill at a ridiculously low value.
