Few days rile the masses quite like Amazon Prime Day, as it provides all the excitement of Black Friday without the camping and trampling. Prime Day 2019 begins at 12:00 AM PST on Monday, July 15, and runs through 11:59 PM PST on Tuesday, July 16. This year’s event will be a heck of a day for world travelers and would-be vacationers to stock up on new clothes and goods ahead of that next big trip.
Here are the best Amazon Prime Day deals for travelers, nomads and people who simply hope to wind up on a tropical beach in the near future.
Summer Infant 3D Lite Convenience Stroller
Traveling with a baby or small child means extra gear, including a stroller and maybe even a car seat. At home, you might have the Cadillac of strollers and perhaps that’s what you take on vacation, but it’s not easy. Summer Infant’s 3D Lite Convenience Stroller is, simply put, convenient.
Able to hold children up to 50 pounds, this stroller folds quickly and can fit right into a checkable travel bag without sacrificing any safety standards. Your little one will be on easy street and you’ll never have to worry about being late for a dinner reservation because your child is too busy looking at aquariums or trying to escape back to the pool.
Samsonite Centric Expandable Hardside Luggage Set
Buying luggage is like car shopping. Cut corners to save money and you’ll likely end up right back on the lot in a few years. But if you invest in a high-quality product and treat it well, you’ll be happy for a long time. In this case, Prime Day is offering a big discount on the Samsonite Centric Expandable Hardside Luggage Set, among other styles.
This two-bag set includes a 20-inch carry-on—perfect for the overhead bin—and a 24-inch spinner that will fit everything you need plus whatever souvenirs you’re bringing home. All the while your gear is kept safe by two side-mounted locks.
Intex Explorer K2 Kayak
Prime Day is delivering up to 30 percent off select Intex inflatable kayaks, including the best-selling Explorer K2. Fitting two people (up to a combined 400 pounds) this kayak is ideal for small lakes or calm rivers, or just what you’re looking for on a road trip to one of Florida’s islands.
The Explorer K2 comes with a high output pump for quick inflation, as well as two oars and a compact carry bag for packing it away in the car. The front seat is also adjustable and removable for both paddlers’ comfort.
Lenovo Smart Tablet P10
This Prime Day special will be found on the Treasure Truck on July 16, so keep an eye on your text alerts. At 25 percent off, this is a great deal for an Android device that will handle all your streaming and e-reading needs while you’re sipping margs at the resort pool.
Need a little more from your Lenovo Smart Tablet P10? Pair it with the Alexa dock to access thousands of perks, from asking for a new song or movie to pulling up your calendar to check the time of your diving expedition.
Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones
Think about all the noise that drives you insane on long flights. Babies and young children. Loud talkers. Snoring. Your fellow passengers who do the unthinkable and watch movies and TV shows on their tablets without headphones. Your stress level is probably rising just thinking about it.
Now, put on your Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones, press play on your favorite vacation music and let the stress melt away. And for a little extra peace, think about the 55 percent discount you’re getting on these headphones for Prime Day.
Sennheiser HD 4.50 SE Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
Another noise cancelling headphone option, the Sennheiser HD 4.50 SE Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones come from one of the first companies to ever use noise reduction headsets, back in 1984 with Lufthansa Airlines.
Fifty percent off for Prime Day, the HD 4.50SE offers instant pairing with Bluetooth 4.0 technology, as well as ear-cup mounted volume and song-changing controls for use with the integrated microphones. Best of all, this set boasts a 19-hour battery life.
Relay Kids Phone Alternative
Some people love the fact that once they arrive in a tropical destination they have to keep their phones on airplane mode until it’s time to return, lest they want to deal with increased rates. However, this presents a problem for parents who are traveling with teens old enough to explore resorts and beaches on their own. How do we keep track of these kids and let them know when it’s time to come back? The Relay Kids Phone Alternative.
For Prime Day, this clever walkie-talkie device is 50 percent off, and with a $9.99/month pre-paid subscription—with no contract—parents can take advantage of GPS tracking, message recording and, of course, pressing one button to let a kid have an earful… of details about dinner, obviously. There’s also a daily joke feature so dad will have something to share at breakfast.
Crocs Baya Clog
Say what you want about Crocs, but they’re like the Jeep of footwear—durable, rugged and utilitarian. At the end of the day, they keep your feet safe from hot sand and sidewalks, and they’re also pretty comfortable. A variety of Crocs styles will be discounted up to 50 percent on Prime Day, including the Crocs Baya Clog which is a fan favorite.
Ray-Ban Blaze Hexagonal Sunglasses
You know the brand name, but this specific style might not already be in your collection. What better time to pick up a pair of the Ray-Ban Blaze Hexagonal Sunglasses than when they’re up to 40 percent off for Prime Day?
Available in 10 styles and colors, the Blaze sunglasses are perfect for poolside reading or wearing to a nice dinner at an oceanfront restaurant.
Mophie Powerstation XL External Battery
We can’t say it enough: You’re going to want a battery pack with you on vacation. Available in three colors, the Mophie Powerstation XL External Battery is up to 40 percent off for Prime Day and it provides you enough juice to completely charge your smart phone three times. And for those truly romantic getaways, there are two USB ports so you and a loved one can charge your phones at the same time.
The Nintendo Switch is like a portable blast of nostalgia for fans of the old school gaming platform, as the online catalog has a ton of old NES titles you can play on the go. This Switch bundle comes with a $35 eShop gift card so you can pick up one of the newer games (Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are perfect starters) and the handheld console’s battery life is good enough for a quick flight or some down time by the pool or in a hammock.
