Amazon Prime members really do have all the fun. Yes, you have to pay an annual fee, but the benefits—two-day free shipping, instant access to movies and TV shows on Amazon Prime Video, discounts at Whole Foods—totally outweigh the cost of admission. It’s like you’re a preferred shopper who can easily cut the line.

Here’s a perk that most people (even Prime members) might not know: Members can get access to Amazon’s ‘secret’ section of sales. This hidden hub is dedicated to ‘Just For Prime’ deals, so it’s really hush-hush. Oops! 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.

If you need a new gaming controller for the Nintendo Switch, then this deal is for you. The Kutime Wireless Gaming Controller is on sale for $21, down from $40, for Amazon Prime members only. Extremely comfortable, it features a solid grip (thanks to faux leather) and up to 10 hours of battery life, plus its buttons are completely re-mappable to best suit your gaming experience. It offers three levels of vibration, so you can customize the amount of shock feedback you want to receive. Bluetooth-enabled, you can pair it with just about any laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet for PC and mobile gaming. And Amazon shoppers love that it comes with an impressive ‘rumble’ feature too.

“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. The battery seems to last several days of playing, and it’s rechargeable using an included USB-C cable which makes it easy to charge...”

I've set up a couple of routines with my Echo device using this smart alarm and I'm very happy with it,” wrote a delighted reviewer. “It makes a great bedside light, and I find both the sunrise and sunset features very calming. I work third shift, so I enjoy anything that helps make my sleep better.”

Don’t know the wonders of Roku? Let us enlighten you: Roku gives you access to tons of movies and shows from more than 500,000 video streaming channels, such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, Prime Video, Disney+ and more. While the included remote can navigate the Roku platform with ease, it can’t navigate the TV itself. But we found something that can.

Enter the SofaBaton R2 Universal Remote Control, a genius gizmo (eight bucks off for Prime members) that can control your Roku device and TV at the same time. No more double-fisting needed: This baby can handle it all—including power and volume control.

“This is a great replacement for the standard Roku remote,” shared a five-star shopper. “Having volume control is a huge benefit and main selling point for me. I just use this one remote, instead of having to use the standard Roku and TV remotes.”

“I used this to replace the cheap keyboard and mouse that came with my PC—which is loud, awkward and hard to type with,” explained a savvy Amazon shopper. “Even my 9-year-old daughter complained about it whenever she uses my PC to do distance learning for school. This combo set is really nice and easy to use compared to what we had, and only one USB receiver to connect both the mouse and keyboard...Keys on the keyboard are quiet and smooth to use making the overall typing experience effortless.”

It features a detachable USB port for a power bank (like the Yacikos Portable Charger mentioned above). And it’s waterproof too! Amazon shoppers vouch for its usefulness and style.

“I love this bag. I've gotten so many compliments on it,” raved a delighted Amazon shopper. “When you unzip the top, a large interior is revealed with two interior pockets. I am able to fit my laptop, wallet, keys, mouse, water bottle and more. The back has a zipper that runs the length of the bag if you need quick access to your laptop. The interior is padded without being too heavy.”
