Amazon Prime members really do have all the fun. Yes, you have to pay an annual fee to be a member, but the benefits — two-day free shipping, instant access to movies on Amazon Prime Video, discounts at Whole Foods — totally outweigh the cost of admission.
Here’s a perk that most people (even Prime members) might not know: Membership gives you access to Amazon’s ‘secret’ section of sales. There's actually a hidden hub that's dedicated to ‘Just For Prime’ deals, so it’s really hush-hush...until now. The cat’s out of the bag!
If you’re not a Prime member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial to take advantage of all the savings — including free two-day shipping. If you decide to stay with the service, it’ll run you $119 per year (about $10 per month), and you can cancel anytime.

On sale for $30 for Prime members only (was $50), the Blurams Wi-Fi Security Camera detects motion and records when it senses activity in Full HD at 1080p resolution. It’s app- and Wi-Fi-enabled, so you can watch all of the action on your phone or tablet. The camera saves video and audio to the cloud via microSD card or in the Blurams cloud, so you don’t have to worry about losing it.
The Blurams Cam even has night vision, so it can keep an eye on your home when you're asleep. And thanks to two-way talk and a built-in microphone, you can confront unwanted guests!
"...It helps track and monitor my home with ease; when it picks up motion or noise it immediately sends an alert to my phone and puts a live video on my phone screen...," wrote a happy five-star reviewer. "I also use it to keep an eye on my dogs while I’m away, so when I see one of them getting into the garbage I can just speak through the phone and into the camera to stop them."
Packed on the quarantine 15? Keep tabs on your weight and other health stats like your BMI (body mass index) with the Loftilla Bathroom Smart Scale, right now a paltry $16 for Prime members only. The sleek, ultra-thin scale can sync to iPhones, Android smartphones, Fitbit, Apple Health, and Google Fit via Bluetooth to give you info on the go.
"This is not your momma's bathroom scale! Sleek design with a nice [Bluetooth] feature," raved a fan. "Just add the app and the technology will chart your BMI and weight gains and losses for the long haul. It's fun to see the graph fall."
Rise and shine! If you’re having trouble waking up in the morning, this gentle alarm clock might be just what the doctor ordered. The HeimVision Sunrise Alarm Clock mimics sunrise, but in your bedroom, to help you wake up gradually and naturally. Choose from seven different chimes — including birdsong, Hawaii wave, streams, beep beep, win dells, chord, ringtone and piano — or FM radio.
And right now, if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can get it for $40.
"First, let me say that I will never use a regular alarm to wake up again," shared a happy morning waker. "The sunrise light alarm has changed my life for the better. I find I am ready to awaken and feel better throughout the day! I had a light alarm that looked very much like this one, except it was a nightmare to setup and then after three months of use, just died without warning...This model allows me to use my phone to do the setup and will even let me do voice commands..."
For Prime members only, this top-rated Coredy Robot Vacuum Cleaner (R300) is on sale for $123, or $36 off with the on-page coupon at Amazon. Built-in sensors ensure it avoids stairs. And at just under three inches high, it scoots under beds and couches to grab all the dirt and dust that's been there for...years? Plus, it’s incredibly quiet, and its nimble wheels transition from floors to carpets like it’s nothing.
"I never thought I’d need something like this, but now that I have it I cannot figure out how I’ve lived without one," wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. "It gives me the opportunity to do literally anything but actually clean my own floors. And y’all, I hate cleaning floors. You can ask my husband. Cause he is the only one who ever does it. So I don’t actually even know why I’m stoked, but I am!"
Let’s face it, surge protectors aren’t pretty. That’s why we always hide them away behind a bookshelf, desk or couch. But this SuperDanny Surge Protector Power Strip — on sale for $19 for Prime members only — looks just as good as it works.
Armed with three power outlets and two USB ports, the gizmo can effectively turn one wall outlet into five with up to 240 volts of power. It also gives your work area or entertainment center some pizazz with its wood-grain look.
"This power strip is awesome. I was tired of looking at the ugly black power strip next to my couch...man, what an eyesore," shared a five-star Amazon reviewer. "This wood-grain one looks great and blends in with my wooden side table. I love that it has the USB ports so when my friends come over and sit on that side they can plug their phones in."
Whether you use it for gaming or working from home, we'll bet the Andaseat Jungle Ergonomic Swivel Office Chair — on sale for $244, or $156 off with on-page coupon for Prime members only — supports your back more than what you're currently using. High-density foam contours to your body for superb spine and neck support. It can also recline and tilt up to 160 degrees and lock in five positions. Made of PVC leather, it's super-durable and a snap to clean.
"So comfortable," raved a shopper. "Due to the pandemic, I need to work from home. A good chair like this [lets me] sit for a long time...I can adjust the support level to ensure my comfort."
On sale for $80 (was $120) for Prime members only, these TrebLab Z2 Over-Ear Headphones deliver exceptional audio clarity with booming bass. The active noise-canceling pair has a long battery life of 35 hours per charge, as well as cushy ear cushions so you can rock out all night long. For the price, you really can't do better.
"Treblab Z2 are the best headphones I own," shared a satisfied shopper. "The sound is crisp and the base hits hard. The buttons on the right can play, pause or change the song and increase and decrease the volume. On the left is an on/off button for noise canceling. Headphones come with a really nice carrying case. The great sound gives me the extra needed drive to power through intense workouts!"
Looking for a simple alarm clock with a nice big display? The DreamSky Digital Alarm Clock — on sale for $17 for Prime members only — can do more than just wake you up in the morning. It can also play your favorite tunes (FM radio!) as you rise for a new day. It comes with a built-in headphone jack for when you want to listen to podcasts in privacy and a battery backup in case the power goes out.
"This clock is perfect for our guest room! It’s easy to read with so many functions and has a USB port to charge your phone with," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper.
On the market for a shiny new Nintendo Switch accessory? The Kutime Wireless Gaming Controller is on sale for $21, down from $40, for Amazon Prime members only. Extremely comfy, it has a faux leather grip and up to 10 hours of battery life, plus its buttons are completely re-mappable. Pair the Bluetooth-enabled controller with just about any laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet for PC and mobile gaming. And get ready to rumble; three levels of vibration let you customize the amount of shock feedback you receive.
"If you want a good controller and don’t want to pay for the Nintendo Switch Pro controller, this is a really nice one," raved a delighted gamer. "I opted to buy this over the PowerA controllers because the PowerA ones don’t have rumble. The rumble on this controller is great. It also has a good weight to it so it feels sturdy..."
