Amazon Prime members really do have all the fun. Yes, you have to pay an annual fee to be a member, but the benefits — two-day free shipping, instant access to movies on Amazon Prime Video, discounts at Whole Foods — totally outweigh the cost of admission.
Here’s a perk that most people (even Prime members) might not know about: Membership gives you access to Amazon’s "secret" section of sales. There's actually a hidden hub that's dedicated to "Just For Prime" deals, so it’s been really hush-hush ... until now. 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.

Watch more TV for less with the Fire TV Stick Lite — on sale for just $20 (down from $30) for Amazon Prime members. It’s easy to set up: It plugs into just about any HD or 4K TV’s HDMI ports, syncs to Wi-Fi and then provides access to hundreds of streaming apps and channels, including Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+, YouTube, Prime Video, Starz, Showtime and much, much more. For someone looking to cut the cord, so to speak, with their cable provider, this is perfect.
"I admit that the thought of cutting off cable caused me actual emotional pain," shared an Amazon shopper. "But so did paying that cable bill. The Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite delivers everything I need for TV viewing. I am not missing cable at all! I am so happy that this technology is available and delivers television viewing in a remarkably easy and painless way at such an affordable cost. Now, what to do with that $120 extra per month."
And for anyone wondering: The Fire TV Stick Lite is the same as the standard Fire TV Stick but with a different remote. This remote has Alexa voice assistant built-in, but it doesn’t have a TV on/off switch or volume controls, which is why it's deemed the "Lite" version.
Curious about your oxygen levels and whether your organs are receiving enough of it? This Konquest KPO-1720 Digital Fingertip Pulse Oximeter, which is on sale for just $10 (or $20 off for Prime members at Amazon), gauges your blood oxygen saturation levels, pulse rate and pulse strength within a few seconds so you can get a speedy read on your health.
Simply place the device on your index finger and your vitals appear on the large, easy-to-read digital LED display. It’s comfortable to use, fits almost any finger size, and even comes with two AAA batteries. It's an ideal tool for the allergy-prone too.
"I purchased it because I have asthma and I wanted to monitor my levels of oxygen," shared a five-star reviewer. "Also, because now with the coronavirus and since I have several allergies, it is difficult to know if it is regular coughing or something else, so I want to catch any problem as early as possible. It is easy to use, and I like that it came with the batteries."
Under the watchful eye of the Blurams Wi-Fi Security Camera, Prime members can find peace of mind for only $30 (was $40). The camera detects motion and records when it senses activity in Full HD at 1080p resolution. It’s app- and Wi-Fi-enabled, so you can watch all the action on your phone or tablet. Video and audio automatically save to the cloud via a microSD card or in the Blurams cloud.
The Blurams cam even has night vision, so it can keep an eye on your home when you're asleep. And thanks to two-way talk and a built-in microphone, you can safely confront unwanted guests.
"It helps track and monitor my home with ease; when it picks up motion or noise it immediately sends an alert to my phone and puts a live video on my phone screen," wrote a happy five-star reviewer. "I also use it to keep an eye on my dogs while I’m away, so when I see one of them getting into the garbage, I can just speak through the phone and into the camera to stop them."
Looking for a great gaming headset? Are you an Amazon Prime member? If you answered yes to both questions, this Alwup A9 Gaming Headset is for you — especially since it’s on sale for $18, or $2 off for Prime members only
Compatible with Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, as well as gaming laptops and desktops, this Alwup headset features immersive audio and stellar noise-canceling microphones for crystal-clear voice chats. Its earcups are foldable and made from memory foam for long-lasting gaming. Some shoppers even say this pair is on par with Audio Technica and Bose headphones.
"This is a quality set of headphones. I was impressed with the sound quality, especially for the price. They rival my Audio Technica ATH-M40x headphones, which are about the same amount off of my friends $300+ Bose headphones," raved a happy gamer. "They were extremely comfortable to wear. The over-the-ear cups didn't press on my ears at all. The tension ... was just adequate to hold them in place but didn't feel like it was trying to squish my head in. The band on the top flexes to just where it needs to be to fit you and acts like a hammock on your head. I comfortably wore these at work for 3+ hours and felt like I could have kept going."
On sale for $27 for Prime members only (was $30), the PrimeTracking Personal GPS Tracker is a compact tracking device with a super-long 14-day battery life. Once the GPS tracker is stashed under a car seat, it can give you real-time stats of its movement, even in the most remote places — thanks to PrimeTracking’s 4G global satellite technology. Locations are viewable on the company's phone app; you’ll see a pin on Google Maps.
It comes in handy for tracking company vehicles or those used by your kids, parents or grandparents, so you’ll always know where they are in case of an emergency.
"Very impressed. We bought the tracker for our real estate agents to keep track of them and their showings. Everything was very accurate," shared a delighted shopper. "The support is beyond anything I ever experienced. At the end of the day, you never know when you show a house who you are showing it to. We like to be careful. This way we can keep everyone safe by giving them a tracker to make sure they are all right. We also use the tracker to [monitor] our teens' driving. It tells us how fast they are driving, which honestly is my favorite part."
Want decadent lattes and cappuccinos at home without investing in a gigantic espresso machine? Enter the FoodVille MF02 Handheld Milk Frother. The handy, USB-powered device whips plain milk into fluffy froth for coffee drinks. Various speeds and attachments allow you to froth or whisk to your liking. You can even use it for eggs, whipped cream or smooth batter.
"I am thrilled with this little hand mixer," says a satisfied shopper. "No batteries, recharges quickly, great power, multiple attachments and it produces excellent frothy milk for my morning cup of coffee."
Get in the zone with these TrebLab Z2 Over-Ear Headphones, on sale for $78 (was $98) for Prime members only. This active noise-canceling pair delivers exceptional audio clarity with booming bass. And talk about endurance: They offer a long battery life of 35 hours per charge, as well as cushy ear cushions so you can work out all morning and rock out all night. For the price, you really can't do better.
"TrebLab Z2 are the best headphones I own," shared a satisfied shopper. "The sound is crisp and the bass hits hard. The buttons on the right can play, pause or change the song and increase and decrease the volume. On the left is an on/off button for noise-canceling. Headphones come with a really nice carrying case. The great sound gives me the extra needed drive to power through intense workouts!"
Let’s face it, surge protectors usually aren’t pretty. That’s why we always hide them away behind a bookshelf, desk or couch. But this SuperDanny Surge Protector — on sale for $20, or $2 off for Prime members only — looks just as good as it works.
Armed with three power outlets and two USB ports, this surge protector can effectively turn one wall outlet into five with up to 240 volts of power. It also gives your work area or entertainment center some pizzazz with its wood-grain look.
"This power strip is awesome. I was tired of looking at the ugly black power strip next to my couch," wrote a happy five-star Amazon reviewer. "I use it to plug my laptop in so I can use it on the couch, but man, what an eyesore. This wood grain one looks great and blends in with my wooden side table. I love that it has the USB ports so when my friends come over and sit on that side they can plug their phones in."
If you have an Apple iPad, it’s likely you can draw and take handwritten notes on it too. But, let’s face it: The Apple Pencil is expensive (hello, $125). No worries: Amazon Prime members can pick up this Kimzy ElegantPen Disc Stylus Pen for just $10 ($7 off). That’s a considerable price difference for something that does essentially the same thing.
This aluminum pen features the precision you need for creating detailed works of art. It’s compatible with Samsung Note20, Google Pixel 5 and just about any capacitive phone or tablet — including the Apple iPad. It even comes with a case.
"Love, love, love this pen. My kindergartener used it with his iPad for 'at home learning' during quarantine and it made our life so much easier. He could not draw and write the things he was required to do without this pen. I even bought a second one," shared a delighted five-star reviewer.
Roku devices are sweet! You access all your favorite movies and TV shows from more than 500,000 video streaming channels, including Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Prime Video, Disney+ and more. But while the included remote can navigate the Roku platform with ease, it can’t really navigate your TV itself.
Enter the SofaBaton R2 Universal Remote Control, a remote that can control your Roku device and TV at the same time. Now there’s no need to double-fist your remotes — yay! This baby can handle it (including power and volume control) — and it’s on sale for just $17, or $8 off for Amazon Prime members only.
"This is a great replacement for the standard Roku remote," shared a five-star shopper. "Having volume control is a huge benefit and the main selling point for me. I just use this one remote, instead of having to use the standard Roku and TV remotes."
Never get stuck in the middle of nowhere without a battery pack for your phone. This Yacikos Portable Charger — which is on sale for $22, or $7 off, for Prime members — has a fast and reliable stream of juice for phones, laptops and tablets with two USB ports and a single microUSB port. It can charge most phones up to six times before the battery bank itself needs to recharge.
"I had bought a handful of portable chargers, since I’m always on the go and there’s never a wall outlet when you need one," wrote a satisfied Amazon shopper. "Its claim for 26,800mAh [milliamp Hour] is right because I charged my phone and other devices for a whole day and it only lost 50 percent. Overall, I’m beyond impressed with the quality and price of this power bank and would definitely buy it again as a gift for one of my friends."
