I’m a Commerce Editor. Here’s What I’m Adding to My Amazon Shopping Cart This Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day starts next week (July 11 and July 12) and personally, I’m excited. Even though I’m a Commerce Editor, I’m very discerning (a.k.a. frugal) about what I spend my money on, and a lot of my must-haves I buy on Amazon Prime Day.

For one thing, I really like a deal, and the two-day event is filled with them!

Secondly, there are sales on the things you actually want and need, like new jeans, for example. I’ve been working on my wish list for a while, and it’s mainly clothing and beauty products. However, I’ve also been on the lookout for a new sofa, vacuum, and other home goods which have discounts attached.

I don’t travel enough (yet) to spend a lot on luggage., so this 8-wheel suitcase from U.S. Traveler is the perfect size and price. Its hardshell exterior makes it impervious to being banged around in handling, plus it’s also waterproof. The wheels spin 360 degrees to handle sudden turns, and the interior is fully line and has a zippered center. Another plus? That it’s available in several, easy to spot colors.

Democracy Women’s Ab Solution Jegging

These jeggings have more than 15,000 rating on Amazon. Here’s why: they’re ultra-stretchy and have slimming panels to smooth any bumps or ripples you want to camouflage. Available in more than a dozen colors, they’re a great option if you prefer wearing leggings, but need to go somewhere the pant-style isn’t appropriate. According to one happy Amazon customer, they’re “literally the best jeans ever!”

PMD Personal Microderm Classic – At-Home Microdermabrasion Machine with Kit

40% off!

Buy from Amazon, $95.40 (was $159)

Yes, you could go to a esthetician for microdermabrasion, but why would you when you could do it yourself? The PMD Personal Microderm Classic – At-Home Microdermabrasion Machine has exfoliating crystals, plus vacuum suction to dislodge the gunk in pores that make them look larger. It also helps to smooth skin, promoting a more even texture, and who doesn’t want that? When your face doesn’t have a bunch of dead skin cells on it, products also absorb better — another reason to exfoliate. The device only has to be used once a week, has several discs for the face and body, and is super easy to handle. Check out the before and afters. I’m willing to bet they will make you add the machine to your Amazon Prime shopping list too!

Blencot Women’s Casual Boho Floral Dress


Buy from Amazon, $49.48

Nothing says summer like a beautiful floral dress, especially one that easily transitions from day to night. I love this one because it has puffed sleeves and a V-neck, perfect for showing off a favorite dangly necklace. Although I’m thinking of snatching it in pink (shown above), it also comes in a myriad of other colors.

Furtalk Womens Wide Brim Straw Panama Hat


Buy from Amazon, $27.99

The Panama hat can make even the sloppiest, least thoughtful ensemble look chic, plus it offers UPF 50 rated protection. Much like sunscreen, a wide brim hat is a non-negotiable. Seriously, your future skin will thank you for it, and if you opt for something like this, you’ll enjoy compliments in the interim.

Viviscal Hair Growth Supplements

22% off!

Buy from Amazon, $27.30 (was $33.48)

I haven’t had a chance to try the Viviscal Hair Growth Supplements, but the reviews have me ready to add them to my cart for Amazon Prime Day. More than 11,000 customers give them a five star rating, and the before and afters are impressive. The supplements have B vitamins, including biotin, vitamin C, iron, and a Aminomar Collagen Complex to thicken locks. Here’s what one happy Amazon customer had to say:

I’m amazed at my 6 month progress using this product! After covid and the stress of buying a house, my hair was getting so thin and would not grow! I was embarrassed to go out! I found this and thought, Why not? And I am so thankful! My hair is so healthy, growing back thicker and fuller than ever before! Highly recommend!

mopio Aaron Sleeper Sofa

23% off!

Buy from Amazon, $329 (was $428)

I’m in the market for a new couch, and the mopio Aaron Sleeper Sofa is exactly my taste. For one thing, it’s mid-century modern style? Chef’s kiss! Secondly, it’s perfect if you’re planning to have guests over. The sofa is made with faux leather, which means it’s far more affordable than its genuine leather counterparts, and the tufted upholstery gives it a more inviting look.

Cosomall 6 Pack Women’s Invisible Seamless Bikini Underwear Half Back Coverage Panties


Buy from Amazon, starting at $20.99

I don’t mind a thong, but there’s something to be said about the comfort of bikini-style underwear. The ones from Cosomall are seamless — because no one needs panty lines — are buttery soft, and have lots of stretch. I also love that six come in a pack, and there is a wide selection of colors to choose from.

Happy Sailed Women’s Casual Sleeveless Jumpsuit


Buy from Amazon, $31.85

Jumpsuits are surprisingly versatile, working great for the office, date night, or a casual afternoon. This one has pockets — always a plus — and features a relaxed fit, so you’ll remain comfortably cool all day. It’s available in more than a dozen colors, goes up to size 4X, and will look great with flip flops or chunky platform sneakers.

Welltree Slides Pillow Slippers


Buy from Amazon, $23.99

I hate flats. However, it’s nice taking a break from the heels, and these pillow slippers have a little height. Also, they’re comfortable. Like, walking on a marshmallow comfortable, and they also have a non-slip bottom. I like them for around the house, but lots of folks like wearing this style outside — and with socks, no less! I’m not kidding. It’s a trend!

Libin Women’s Cargo Joggers


Buy from Amazon, $34.98

I’m not a huge fan of shorts, so when I’m lounging around my house or taking a walk, I like a slouchy pair of joggers. These have a UPF 50+ treatment, zip-up pockets, plus two cargo pockets with hook and loop closures to keep your phone and card safe. Available in 16 colors, sizes between XS and 3XL.

XTERRA Fitness TR Folding Treadmill

12% off!

Buy from Amazon, $331.49 (was $374.99)

I was reluctant to share my desire for the XTERRA Fitness TR150 Folding Treadmill, because I don’t want it to sell out before I’ve added it to my cart. However, the compact but sturdy machine is a great find, especially if you’re serious about fitness. Although I like working out outside, having a treadmill is super handy when snowy days put a wrench in my fitness plans, and this one comes with 12 preset programs, a large LCD screen to track progress, and transport wheels. It’s narrow, which is great for small spaces, and is stable enough if you want it for long runs.

Shark RV1001AE IQ Robot Vacuum with Navigation

41% off!

Buy from Amazon, $414.99 (was $599.99)

Most of us are busy, so it’s nice having a helping hand when it comes to cleaning. Since I’m not spending money on a housekeeper, this robot vacuum is the next best thing. It works with wi-fi, can pair with Alexa, and is a total whiz at mapping your home’s layout. Most importantly, it only needs to be emptied every 45 days, and has a no-tangle brush that can catch pet fur, hair strands, and other things you don’t want laying around. Operate with your voice or phone, and then kick back while the machine sucks up debris row by row.

LEVOIT Air Purifier

15% off!

Buy from Amazon, $76.49 (was $$89.99)

Does your home seem to absorb all the summer smells from the neighbor’s yard? Well, you don’t need to deal with the scent of fish frys, fire pits, or cigarette smoke. The LEVOIT Air Purifier is a master at removing funky odors. Ideal for 915 square foot or less spaces, its HEPA filter absorbs even the most minuscule particles, and can be operated with your phone or Alexa. More than 18,000 happy Amazon customers give it five stars!

Dokotoo Women’s Chiffon Top


Buy from Amazon, $28.99

Lightweight chiffon and kimono-style sleeves make this blouse a must-have. It looks sensational tucked into a pair of fitted jeans, but also works paired with a skirt for dressier occasions. I like to jazz up all my ensembles with accessories, but the drapey neckline is so interesting, you can definitely nix the necklace if you’re not in the mood. I prefer this top in black, but it’s also available in green, golden yellow, blue, and many other bold colors.

Asgard Women’s Waterproof Chelsea Boots


Buy from Amazon, $32.99

Unless you’re me, you’re probably not thinking about boot season. However, summer is a great time to find deals on the fall staple, and Amazon Prime shopping is even a better time to find sales. I love this Chelsea boot. It’s classic, cool, and looks good with regular jeans, skinny jeans — yes, some of us are still wearing those — and leggings. This specific one has ample toe room, EVA foam for a comfier stride, and are waterproof! I’m partial to them in black, but they also come in yellow, green, and grey.

Artistic Weavers Odelia Vintage Bohemian Area Rug


Buy from Amazon, $83.99

A rug is an easy way to tie a space together and add some personal style. Depending on the size, they can definitely run you a pretty penny, which is why I save the purchase for Amazon Prime shopping. This one is low pile, stain resistant, and under $100. If you’re not feeling the look in blue and orange (photo above), check it out in grey, purple, and orange, or purple and grey. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Frownies The Original Wrinkle Patch


Buy from Amazon, $23.95

I love Frownies! They’ve been around for 130 years and really do help soften forehead lines. They basically operate similar to face tape, making it difficult for you to make the expressions that, over time, create wrinkles. There are 144 patches in a box, so they last a long time, and I had no problem sleeping with them. They also work for around the eyes, and don’t slip off as easily as silicone-based face patches.

CRZ YOGA Women’s Strappy Sports Bras Fitness Workout Padded Yoga Bra Criss Cross Back


Buy from Amazon, $26

Sports bras are surprisingly expensive, so I’m always hunting for one that’s supportive and affordable. This one from Crz Yoga is ideal for Pilates, walking, and other low impact sports. And since it doesn’t have underwire, it makes a very comfortable sleep bra too!
