The Goovi Smart Robot Vacuum boasts intense suction, making short work of dust bunnies and pet hair—and the price is right: For Prime Day, it’s only $172 (down from $269). The Goovi can handle any floor type, including carpets, hardwood and tile, thanks to large wheels that roll over small obstacles—yes, even door ledges.
Shared a delighted reviewer: “I have a dog that sheds a lot. The robot can get the hair in hard to reach places like under the sofa. On a full charge, it can clean for about 90 minutes. When the robot gets ‘tired’ it drowsily makes its way back to the charging station. I have mine set to wake up at 6 am automatically everyday. I can honestly say my house is dramatically less hairy.”

If you’re a hiker, biker or love a good camping trip, a CamelBak water bottle is a must. The leak-proof model has a two-finger loop for easy carrying, and it’s dishwasher-safe. It’s also BPA-free, and comes in 18 colors and prints.
“Let’s be real for a second... I used to literally NEVER drink water,” one shopper shared. “Not kidding, I would go four days without water. My body was used to living in a state of dehydration until I became an adult and would get headaches all the time. I’ve had a few hydroflasks but when I put ice in it was too cold to drink and I hated unscrewing the lid. With this straw lid, the plastic bottle, and the size— I DRINK WATER NOW. Like 4 to 5 of these a day.”

I have weird ears and no in-ear headphones have ever fit me this well. The seal is great and it just doesn’t move!”

Sometimes, we get really lucky, and a big name drops the price on luxe headphones for Prime Day. These wireless Sony WH-CH710N Noise-Canceling Headphones are on sale for just $88—that’s a whopping $112 off—at Amazon. An incredible 56 percent savings and the lowest price we’ve ever seen on these top-rated headphones.
Originally $200, the wireless headphones feature the crisp, clear audio you’d expect from Sony. Sony’s ‘Dual Noise Sensor Technology’ blocks out nearly all background and ambient noise. No humming from your air conditioner or thrum from the washing machine; it’s just you and your music. Makes an impressive holiday gift (they’ll think you spent a fortune).
“The Sony headphones are perfect. They sync easily and the sound is clear,” raved a five-star reviewer. “The noise-canceling feature is great and often annoys my wife and kids when I can't hear them. These are very comfortable.... The charging is quick and the battery life is very good.”
