Ready to shop the most magical internet shopping day of the year? Say hello to Amazon Prime Big Deals Day. Markdowns on everything from home goods and electronics like the Kindle to beauty tools are already live on the site. There’s a catch, though—these savings are only available to Amazon Prime members.
Now is the time to splurge on that fun weird stuff sitting in your Amazon wishlist, frequently repurchased household items like detergent and big-ticket finds such as TVs and tablets. As a bonus, those who sign up for a Prime membership don’t just get free shipping and exclusive savings—Amazon TV shows and movies are included with membership.
What is Amazon Prime Big Deals Day?
Amazon Prime Big Deals Day deals are like the retailer’s Black Friday specials, only better. With hundreds of deals already live on the site, it’s worth signing up for a Prime membership (or taking advantage of a free 30-day trial) ASAP to score the savings. Stock up on holiday gifts, fall clothing and other seasonal must-haves for less.
When is Amazon October Prime Day 2023?
This year’s October Amazon Prime Day—also called Prime Big Deal Days—takes place on October 10 and 11, 2023. Prime-exclusive savings are only available during that 48-hour period, so we recommend filling your cart ahead of the sale before your favorites sell out. We expect to see an influx of Amazon coupons and slashed prices on bestsellers across all categories. Last year’s savings topped out at 70% for some finds!

Shoppers with Prime memberships (or who signed up for a free 30-day trial) are able to score up to 70% off popular products from all categories. Plus, those who sign up get to enjoy other great Prime benefits that come with the subscription (like fan-favorite funny Amazon movies and TV shows).

The Best Amazon Prime Day deals
Multi-purpose steam cleaner
When caked-on gunk doesn’t surrender with sponges, a steam cleaning kit is sure to take it down. Unlike a traditional steam mop, this handheld tool uses 12 different attachments to clean out almost any nook and cranny—including behind the sink. Because it uses concentrated steam instead of chemicals, it’s safe to use around pets and kids. Snag this cleaning machine while it’s a whopping 20% off during October’s Amazon Prime Day deals, plus an extra 30% off with coupons.
AncestryDNA genetic test kit
In the age of the internet, genetic testing is easy to do. This genetic testing kit, available for $40 off during October’s Prime Day deals, tests 2,300 global regions to determine living relatives and ethnicity estimates and help create family trees. Doctors recommend DNA testing kits for all sorts of things, including locating allergies and finding passed-down diseases. Why not learn a little more about yourself?
The Editor-loved Bed Jet 3 takes cooling bedding to a new level, and it’s currently $110 off. Bed Jet’s biggest draw is the cooling and heating system built into the device. This app-powered system eliminates nightly hot flashes and provides moisture-dissipating comfort all night long. Temperature controls on the included app make it easy to set a specific temperature or cycle through different temperatures throughout the night for ultimate customization.
Bissell PowerGlide Pet
Craving a cordless stick vacuum for quick pickups? The Bissell PowerGlide Pet has any mess covered. A tangle-free roll brush, up to 30 minutes of runtime and LED headlights that highlight missed dirt are only a few of our favorite features. This pet hair remover is 17% off during October’s Amazon Prime Day deals.
Swivel power strip and charging station
It’s always good to have an extra power strip lying around. Stock up on a few while they’re $15 off. Apart from offering six electrical outlets, each charging station also boasts three USB charging ports for phones or watches. A 180-degree pivoting anchor port makes it easy to move the outlet for easier access without unplugging a thing.
Mini phone projector
For 30% off (plus an extra $10 coupon), score a mini projector for October Halloween movie nights. This lightweight, 1080p HD projector works with Android and Apple phones, TV sticks like the Fire Stick and USBs to deliver high-definition sound and an 8,000-lumen picture. A carrying case and tripod come with it, so it’s easy to set up a personal theater anywhere.
Hoover commercial spot extractor
Protect carpets from stains and spills with the Hoover carpet scrubber. While it’s bulkier than a portable carpet cleaner, this commercial-grade carpet shampooer tackles deep, set-in stains quickly and efficiently using five spinning brushes—no bending over to scrub required. Hot air suction speeds up drying time and a separate dirty water tank makes this a seriously solid machine—especially for 18% off.
Tineco Floor One S3
We love a wet and dry vac, and the Tineco Floor One S3 never disappoints and right now, it’s $120 off! This smart vacuum detects debris, adjusts the suction power and cleaning mode and gets to work on tough messes instantly. Floor One S3 is a smart wet and dry vac that blows every other option out of the water. That’s why it’s one of our favorite Amazon Prime Day deals. Between the cordless, lightweight build and self-propelled motor, using it is even easier (and cheaper) than hiring a maid.
Bissell Crosswave Cordless Max
As animal enthusiasts, we love a good vacuum for pet hair. The Bissell Crosswave takes this a step further with the inclusion of dry and wet mess capabilities. Do double duty by mopping and vacuuming all in one single push. It beats doing two separate chores, especially when you can snag the Crosswave at a savings of 41%. The discount is so good, it’s one of our Editor picks for Prime Day!
