Like heatwaves and firework shows, Prime Day appears sometime in early July. However, what exactly will be on sale (and for how long) is a closely guarded secret. Well, wonder no more: Prime Day 2018 has kicked off, and we're seeing huge discounts across home and decor.
This year, Amazon is using the shopping holiday (which started at 12 p.m. PT and will run all day tomorrow as well) to promote their own private label lines, like the MCM-inspired Rivet and farmhouse-chic Stone & Beam. The quietly-growing AmazonBasics, which includes everything from sheets and hangers to paper shredders and fire pits, is also seeing price cuts.
But aside from private label items, there's a lot to shop. The typical big-ticket items, like vacuums and KitchenAid stand mixers, are also on sale. You can even pick up your very own nugget ice maker, should you be so inclined.
Below, see some of our favorite deals you can shop for home, from decor to cleaning. Not a Prime member yet? You can sign up for a 30-day free trial to enjoy all the Prime day perks, starting today as well.
With WiFi connectivity giving you the ability to clean at the tap of a button, this can get your home clean while you're not even at home. Great for pet owners or people who prefer daily cleaning, a Roomba won't replace deep cleaning altogether but can keep your floors and carpet clean with almost no effort from you. At $250, this is a great deal on a model that has nearly every bell and whistle you'd need without breaking the bank.
Less exciting than a robot vacuum, room darkening curtains are still a great way to keep sunlight out—and even cool A/C in. Not a sexy purchase, but at over 50 percent off, now is a great time to pick up this well-rated set from AmazonBasics.
If we've said it once, we've said it a thousand times: Pink rugs work anywhere. At under $100, this is a great deal on an area rug.
While this is still a lot for a vacuum, this is your chance to get one of the most advanced Dyson stick vacuums on the market on sale. It's definitely one of those buys for the cleaning-obsessed who need the best of the best. (And if any vacuum could go from "better" to "best," it's Dyson.)
Opal Nugget Ice Maker,
Does anyone need pellet ice? Perhaps not. But the cult-favorite frozen water can now be made easily in your own home. Its still an indulgence—but at $100 off, Prime Day might be the time to take the leap and get one.
Tuft & Needle Full Mattress, Full,
The original "mattress-in-a-box," Tuft & Needle is regularly ranked as best budget buy on the market. And, for the next 36 hours, you can get it for 20 percent off.
Rivet Gold Table Lamp,
Rivet also has some great accent pieces on sale, not just larger furniture like the couch. In addition to lamps, throw pillows, side tables, and art are also on sale.
Vitamix 5200 Blender,
Perhaps not as attractive as a KitchenAid mixer, a Vitamix is equally powerful when it comes to its dedicated tasks: making smoothies, nut butters, and purées in a flash. (Oh, and milkshakes and frozen margaritas, too.) This industry favorite can tackle any job without kicking out on you. If around $300 is still too much, consider grabbing a certified refurbished model for $199. The biggest difference is the "low profile" container, which still holds 64 ounces and is supposed to be easier to store.
