Catch these October Prime Day bargains before they disappear
We’ve already had one Prime Day in 2023, but Amazon is now taking us on a second outing just in time to get a head start on holiday shopping. The Prime Big Deal Days sales extravaganza features some of the BestReviews Testing Lab’s favorite products. Many top-selling small appliances, home items, unique gadgets, essential beauty products and more fall into the $100-or-less price range when they are on sale for the big event.
Amazon often has deep discounts on its own products, so we expect to see deals on the Echo Dot, Fire Tablets and Fire TV Sticks. To help you get started, we’ve rounded up the best deals that cost less than $100.
