"This Prime Day, I purchased my second pair of AirPods. Sadly, I lost my wallet a few months ago, which contained my precious AirPods that I used literally everywhere. Fellow introverts, I'm sure you get it. Having to replace such a pricey item (along with all of my IDs and credit cards) was a hard pill to swallow, but the fact that I can take advantage of this rare discount during Prime Day is a huge help." — Jasmine Grant, Senior Commerce Editor

"A few years ago, I dropped my Kindle in the pool, and I have never trusted myself to buy another one since. But this newer model is waterproof (aka me-proof), and I couldn’t resist the awesome Prime Day deal." — Amy Gordon, Commerce Editor

"I was super excited to snag a BioPEDIC body pillow! It's beyond time for me to replace the pillows in my bedroom, and this is the first purchase of many. It looks so cozy, I had to get my hands on it!" — Britt Franklin, Associate Commerce Editor

"For a good year now, my dad has been obsessed with my Bose headphones, asking to borrow them every time I visit. He’s not one to buy pricey electronics for himself, so this Prime Day I’m picking him up a pair as a belated Father’s Day gift. He loves how comfortable they are as well as how much they really block outside noise. But if I’m being honest, I don’t know what he’s going to be more excited about — me getting them for him or the fact that I got them at such a steal!" — Sarah Vazquez, Commerce Writer

"I've been searching for a new duvet cover, since my current one is from my freshman year of college (oops). Originally, I was looking for a plain white duvet. But once I spotted this reversible one, I couldn't get over how cute it was — and you certainly can't beat that Prime Day price." — Grace Cooper, Commerce Intern

"I also needed a new comforter for my new duvet (obviously). Plus, getting both for under $75 was a pretty big win. I've heard great things about this brand on Amazon, and I'm excited to finally get to try it out! As a hot sleeper who loves to pile on blankets even in the summertime, a cooling comforter is just what I need. And it's reversible!" — Grace Cooper, Commerce Intern
