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.

On sale for $19 for a five-pack for Prime members only, these Fiream Washable Face Masks are made with three layers of soft, breathable cotton. Ear loops have handy rubber stoppers for a comfy fit, and you’ll get two lanyards and five filters thrown in for good measure. Expect an assortment of playful patterns, from floral to leopard.
“I absolutely love these masks,” raved a savvy Amazon shopper. “Perfect size, soft material with room to breathe. The nose wire and chin rest keeps them from slipping or moving around. Kept their shape after washing...”
More than 5,600 Amazon shoppers gave this Miatone Bluetooth Wireless Speaker a flawless five-star rating—and it’s on sale for just $26 (was $35) for Prime members only. The audio is crisp, the bass is deep and it just looks cool too. It features a 100-foot Bluetooth range, while it’s also lightweight and waterproof, so feel free to take it on the go.
“I'm impressed with this particular bluetooth speaker. I've had a number of other BT speakers, and the build quality of this one is among the best of the best,” raved a satisfied Amazon shopper. “...Very solid feel to it. It has really been tested, too. I've used it working in the garage where I dropped it on the hard floor multiple times with no effect to the speaker. I've dropped it in the yard on wet and muddy grass and it just keeps on playing. I've taken it in the shower at least 10 times now (singing in the shower just got great accompaniment).”
Your video chats are about to get a whole lot better. On sale for $30, this Samcorn HD Webcam features a glass lens that can stream video at Full HD and 30FPS (frames per second) for crisp images ideal for Zoom, Google Meet, Skype and more. Complete with a mini tripod stand and a wide viewing angle up to 97 degrees, it’ll automatically balance white levels and color correction to make you look your best—even in dim light.
This shopper loves “the sliding security cover so I don't accidentally record myself when people are watching. Just gives me peace of mind.”
This infrared forehead thermometer quickly gets the job done and it’s just $20 right now at Amazon. It’s so popular that it has earned a perfect five-star rating from more than 3,100 reviewers, and we can see why. Simply point the Purea Infrared Forehead Thermometer to get a quick body temperature. The reading will show in seconds on the large LED digital display. It’s foolproof—and nurse-approved.
“I am a nurse, and I need to measure the patients’ temperature frequently,” wrote a savvy shopper. “The traditional oral thermometer takes too long, and it needs to be disinfected every time. The process is tedious, so I bought this forehead infrared thermometer, which only takes one second to measure the temperature with accurate readings. It can save me and my patients a lot of time.”
If you’re the type to lose your keys or just rather not carry around a heavy keyring, read on. The Smonet Bluetooth Smart Deadbolt works via your phone, the keypad or an actual key. That way, you don’t need to bring your keys when you run out to the store, and you can give the code to a friend or anyone who needs access when you’re not home. Four AA batteries will provide 5,000 openings (about six months or so).
“This smart lock is really good and it was easy to install and works great,” raved a smart home shopper. “It fit right into where my old deadbolt used to be so I didn't have to make any new holes. I really like the app. App allows you to designate a code for a period of time. I can be 100 feet away and my phone will open it. The battery works perfectly so far.”
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 faux leather grip 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...”
The YI Smart Security Camera is more than just a camera—it has an optional Emergency Response Service that can instantly connect you to your local fire, EMS services and police for around-the-clock security and peace of mind.
“So far so good. Just set these up in my parents’ house as we have a lot of people coming through to care for my father,” shared a satisfied shopper. “The setup was crazy-easy! The images are awesome. They record 24/7 and you don't have to get the Cloud storage if you don't want it. The cams record to MicroSD card (sold separately) and when you go back to review footage it shows the entire timeline along with markings where activity was present...”
At $73 (was $89) for four, as a Prime member, you’ll pay just $18.25 per cam.
These days, you never want to leave home without a spare charger. On sale for $24, the Yacikos Portable Charger is a no-brainer—it delivers a fast and reliable stream of juice for phones, laptops and tablets with two USB ports and a single microUS port. Plus, it can charge most phones up to six times before the battery bank needs re-juicing itself.
“This charger seems very well built and has enough power to last awhile,” wrote a tech savvy shopper. “Easy to use.”
If you’re having trouble waking up in the morning, you might just need a new alarm clock. Amazon’s No. 1 best-selling clock radio, the HeimVision Sunrise Alarm Clock, mimics sunrise, but in your bedroom, to help you wake up gradually and naturally. Choose from seven different chimes—think birdsong, Hawaii wave, and piano—or FM radio.
“It's pretty much everything I wanted. The most important feature for me is the ability to control it with Alexa. 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.”
A steal at $35, this Himawari Travel Backpack is chock full of bells and whistles. It can transport a 15.6-inch laptop (and its accessories) with more than enough room leftover for clothes and other gear. 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.”
