I’ve been an Amazon member for over a decade. Here are the celeb-approved items I’m shopping this Prime Day

So many bargains!

Prime Day is back for 2024, with hundreds of thousands of products set to be discounted. While that can seem overwhelming, at least you have more time than ever to bargain hunt. 

Unlike past years, Prime Day is on for six days! From 16 July to 21 July, Prime Members can ‘add to cart’ like nobody’s business. The retailer is slashing prices on items from electronics to home and kitchen wares, Amazon devices, everyday essentials, beauty, video games, toys, shoes and more. 

It’s basically Christmas in July!

With two kids (one with a July birthday), Father’s Day coming up, a full-time job and a home that could use a refresh, this is what I’m planning to save on during the annual shopping event as a 15-year Prime veteran.

Hot tip: Scroll to the end to see how you can win a $1000 Amazon gift card – we have three up for grabs!

Amazon is my go-to for kids’ birthday presents, family activities and arts-and-crafts kits to keep my budding artist busy for hours – and away from a screen.

This Prime Day, Amazon is offering savings across craft supplies, kits and art accessories. Certain toys like LEGO are discounted as well. This means it’s the perfect time to stock up on birthday presents for all the parties my kiddos are sure to be invited to for the rest of the year.

And my Amazon wish came true – Squishmallows are on sale for Prime Day! I’m getting this adorable four pack.


Anne Hathaway’s expression is much like my own son’s when he sees me. Absolutely thrilled!

I have a teenage son, so it’s less about the toys and more about the electronics these days. According to Amazon, top brand names like Apple, Bose and Philips will be featured in the sales. 

While he’d no doubt love a new smart TV (this one from Sony is so amazing, I think it’s the perfect replacement for our living room), Apple Airpods, $150, or Bose headphones, he won’t get all three. However, these Prime Day deals make it tempting to grab them all!

Also, did you see the Fire TV Stick 4K Max? It’s 50% off right now, making it only $59. And to sweeten the deal, you also score a bonus 1-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate with purchase. Time to get Christmas ready!

Father’s Day isn’t until September, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get a head start on getting something for the rockstar men in our lives. 

I, for one, will be grabbing a Kindle Paperwhite, $214, for my darling husband. He’s really gotten into reading a lot of leadership books to level up in his career, and it seems like the perfect gift of support.

Also, when you sign up for a Prime membership between 24 June to 21 July, Amazon is giving you three months of Kindle Unlimited for free. After that, it’s just $13.99/month, and you can cancel anytime.

Oh and he’s also a fan of the new all-in-one Ninja Woodfire Pro grill David Beckham shared on his Instagram stories. While not an official Prime Day deal, Prime members can save $10 when spending $150 with Zip, using code ZIPPRIMEDAY at checkout.


Even celebrity chefs love the convenience of a good air fryer. (Image: X)

My kitchen has been neglected a bit too long. And trying to get dinner on the table for a family of four after working in the office all day is not an easy feat. 

So to streamline the process, I’m grabbing this Philip’s air fryer that not only seems to be celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay approved, but it also promises to make simple work of dinner. 

I’ll also be adding fresh kitchen towels (can never have too many!) and a pretty new cookware set that’ll make me want to actually cook dinner (I hope!). This non-stick ceramic set is beautiful.


Be like Beyoncé and get a Dyson Airwrap as your ‘everyday essential’ – I mean, it is on sale after all! (Image: Instagram)

From coffee pods to bubbly kombucha drinks, I regularly turn to Amazon to deliver the items I need straight to my door. 

With Prime Day, several of these items have been heavily discounted, making it easier to save. And in this economy, who isn’t pinching pennies?

Also, toilet bowl cleaners aren’t glamorous, but they are a necessity. So, I’ll be popping some of that goodness in my cart along with more shower, glass and surface cleaners. And I’m in dire need of a new Dyson vacuum. This one is nearly 50 per cent off – so adding to cart!

Literally, Amazon has pretty much everything. I regularly buy hand soap and body wash from the retailer as well.

And for a little “treat”, I’m adding this Dyson Airwrap to cart!
