Did Amazon forget Prime Day is over? The two-day shopping extravaganza has come and gone, but the deals just keep coming. This weekend, they've unveiled a slew of markdowns to be excited about in category upon category. Whether you're looking to invest in a new TV, fancy new tech or just some new duds for your summer wardrobe, there's so much to snag while it's marked down.

Of course, with Amazon Prime you’ll get so much more — from access to new movies and TV shows, discounts at Whole Foods, exclusive sales and two-day shipping on many, many items. Not yet a member? Let's fix that; sign up for a free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

It's time to shop!

This deal seems too good to be true...but it ain't! Amazon has one of its top-selling TVs, the Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV — Fire TV Edition, on sale for just $110, or $60 off!

Instant access to Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, YouTube, Disney+, Prime Video, Peacock, Paramont+ and so much more will soon be yours. Alexa is included in the remote, so browsing will be a snap. Shoppers are just as shocked by the quality of this TV as we are by this incredible price!

“I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV,” wrote a delighted shopper. “As far as clarity goes, I believe 720p is plenty for this screen size.... I have been very pleased with the Wi-Fi reception of the built-in Fire TV. It actually works a lot better than the USB-plug-in external fire sticks, for whatever reason.”

How 'bout an audio steal to go with your new eye-dazzling TV? On sale for $170 (was $300), the Beats Solo Pro Headphones sync to just about any smartphone or laptop via Bluetooth, delivering rich audio and sturdy bass. Super sleek, the pro-level headphones come in a cool Light Blue. They’re noise-canceling, so you can block out just about all background and ambient sound to enjoy your favorite music and podcasts...or just a bit of silence.

“These are the best Beats so far. They sound very good and less bass-heavy than previous models. Sound is really crisp,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “Very worth it. The Noise Canceling feature is so good. You basically cannot hear anything around you!”

The Beats have up to a generous 40 hours of battery life per charge, so you don’t have to be tethered to a wall outlet all day long. In fact, they pump out a solid stream of music with top-notch audio for nearly two days. This is pretty impressive, considering that most wireless headphones tap out after about 30 hours.

Been hankering to make the jump to Apple-land...or upgrade your current Apple tablet? On sale for $520 (was $599), the Apple iPad Air (Wi-Fi-only model) is slightly larger than the previous iteration, with a 10.9-inch Retina display compared to 10.2. It’s also zippier, thanks to Apple’s A14 Bionic chip (the older model uses the A12 processor). Plus, it has 256GB of on-board storage instead of 32GB. In just about every way, the Apple iPad Air is bigger, faster, sharper and sleeker.

“...It's a bit faster, a bit thinner, a bit lighter, and a bit shinier than all the tablets I've used before,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “But, taken altogether — and taken along with the second-generation Apple Pencil — it feels like an entirely new experience. I haven't been this struck by a new device in a while...it fits itself into my workflow immediately. I think the highest praise I can give it is that it's amazing how quickly it effectively disappeared: Within a couple days of using it, I stopped noticing it, because everything about writing and taking notes with the iPad and the Pencil felt second nature; like it had always been there.”

It’s compatible with styluses like the Apple Pencil and keyboard covers like the Apple Magic Keyboard (both sold separately).

Amazon has chopped an incredible $47 off NBA 2K21 for Nintendo Switch — it’s down to just 13 bucks this weekend. The game features all 30 NBA teams and players, including Trae Young, Devon Booker, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kawhi Leonard, Zion Williamson, Damian Lillard, LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Steph Curry, James Harden and Gordon Hayward.

NBA 2K21 has all the dynamic, vivid gameplay you want, from multi-player online to one-on-one (you versus the game itself). For the first time ever, it features WNBA teams as well, with players like Brittney Griner, Elena Delle Donne, Liz Cambag and Nneka Ogwumike. Right now, the price is more than right...it's nuts!

"Bought the game for my son — he's an avid 2K Madden kid. He opened it up and loved it...It made me glad to see his smiling face," shared a delighted parent.

Sometimes, a product allows you to go smaller and smarter. On sale for $60 (was $80), the Echo Show 5 is Amazon's smaller, sleeker display. Armed with a 5-inch screen, the Echo Show 5 is the perfect lightweight multitasking component for your nightstand. This smart-home display can double as a digital alarm clock with Alexa built-in. In fact, Amazon has a wide range of personalized clock faces to choose from, so you can bring a little bit of your own personality to this device.

“This is the best alarm clock I've ever had,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “The clock face is customizable and very easy to read from anywhere in the room. The screen has no distortion or discoloration from any angle, so it is easy to see from everywhere...Perfect for checking the time in the middle of the night.”

Been thinking that one of these days you ought to pull the trigger on a robovac? Well, let 'er rip, because the top-rated OKP Life K2 Robot Vacuum Cleaner is now just $136 with on-page coupon for Prime members only at Amazon right now. That's $164 off. Not yet a member? Sign up for a free 30-day trial here.

The K2 is an ultra-quiet cleaning machine that can tackle just about any household surface from hardwood to carpets to tile, while its sophisticated sensors prevent collisions and tumbles. It's also mighty powerful, with up to 100 minutes of running time per charge. 

And, believe it or not, shoppers love it even more than that other robovac. "I really like this vacuum so far," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "It works better than an expensive Roomba that I had previously. It is quieter, doesn’t get stuck on all of my thresholds and rugs, and it has a larger bin for dirt.... It picks up a lot of pet hair and has a good battery life."

Wi-Fi–enabled, it's compatible with the Alexa and Google Assistant voice assistants. Suck it up and grab one while it's nearly 60 percent off!

What’s so great about the MacBook Air, you ask? Glad you asked! A speedy Apple octa-core M1 processor, 8GB of memory, 256GB of on-board storage and the latest version of macOS Big Sur, that's what. The Apple MacBook Air — on sale for $900 (was $999) — is a sleek and slim speed demon. It’s also super-lightweight at just under three pounds. Pretty too: You can score one of these in Gold, Silver, and Apple's signature Space Gray.

"Bought this laptop because I needed it for spring semester and I needed an upgrade from my heavy MacBook Pro. I work too, so I needed something super light and thin — I can just bring everywhere and slide it in my bag," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. She continues: "I am obsessed with how fast this MacBook Air is. The battery life is on point. I used it for movies and series at work and it lasted for three days. The processor is so good. I open so many tabs at once and it has not lagged on me." Watching movies and series at work? We want your job!

Whether you're outfitting a new apartment or looking for a gift for a loved one who is, this Farberware ensemble is a no-brainer. It has everything you need for the most expansive dinner spread: Two saucepots, a stockpot, two frying pans and a three-quart saute pan. Yum! Also yummy: This 60-percent-plus markdown! Plus, they're made entirely with stainless steel, so they're oven-safe for up to 500 degrees. Don't worry about cleanup either: Just chuck 'em in the dishwasher and walk away. 

"When I decided to buy a new set of pots and pans, I feel like I spent weeks researching which ones would be right for me," a shopper shared. "I wanted something that looked nice but was going to hold up well. These have a unique flair to them and have held up impeccably over the years that I've had them. No non-stick coating or rubber handles to deal with, easy to clean up, and they heat evenly."

If the past year (or your entire life) hasn't been kind on your eyes, now is the time to turn back the clock. This eye cream tackles those telltale signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines and more, plus it helps mask dark circles and puffiness. A cocktail of Vitamin E and a blend of peptides helps hydrate and firm, and a 40 percent discount (with on-page) coupon is pretty intoxicating, too.

"This eye gel is amazing," a shopper shared. "It smooths on with an easy glide, it keeps my under-eye area moist and has literally resolved the crepe look I had under my eyes that I simply couldn't get rid of with other eye creams. I had read the reviews on this product, searching for an eye gel rather than a cream, in order to hold the moisture in. I purchased it and am thrilled! It's light, makeup smooths over it easily and without any 'gunky' look like some creams can do, and it leaves my eyes looking much younger and fresh!"

Cross-front leggings have been trending all spring long; here's you chance to hop on board — and at half off, too. The criss-cross style of these yoga capris looks great paired with anything from a T-shirt to a sports bra (if you want to wear them to the gym!) and crops at the ankle. Available in 45(!) colors and ranges in sizes from extra-small to 3XL. 

"I love these leggings!" a shopper shared. "I am on the heavier side and these leggings are perfect dupes for more expensive brands. They are buttery and soft and are long enough for me at 5'9". I love the cross waist, it can feel like too much fabric there, but it makes my waist look SNATCHED. Love these and highly recommend."

The past year taught us many things. Among them, that we can never possibly have too much Purell. The brand's iconic formula is a must for any household, and the cooling gel leaves your hands feeling clean and hydrated — not sticky, like cheapo alternatives. Get it for just $15.

"Doesn't leave a residue and doesn't have much of an odor at all," one shopper shared. "This is our favorite brand of hand sanitizer by far."

These pillows are made from a polyester-and-soybean fiber blend, making them incredibly soft to touch (and vegan!) but firm enough to provide that all-important support. They're plush and fade-resistant, plus they aren't prone to staining. This weekend you can grab a pair of them for $22 off.

"These pillows are wonderful!" one shopper shared. "I had neck pain every morning from sleeping on pillows with no support. With these, I don't have to constantly readjust myself to find a comfortable position. They are soft yet firm and provide excellent support."

If you're a pet parent, you know how important it is to ensure that your pups are eating right (and not, say, getting their treats from the trash). While most puppy snacks are loaded with preservatives, dyes and all sorts of nasties, these bites from Amazon in-house brand Wag are made from 100 percent chicken breast, sourced and freeze-dried in the USA. That's it. They're packed with protein and are bite-sized, so they're good for both itty-bitty pups and big boys alike.

"These are the perfect treat to stuff in a bone to ensure hours of entertainment for your pup," a shopper noted. "They have a strong scent which entices them to keep working to get at it. The treats are light and squish to fit [inside] the bones pretty well. My dog goes nutty for these. Having a bone stuffed with treats she has to work for keeps her occupied and less likely to get bored and tip over the trash or get into things she shouldn't."
