It’s Amazon Prime Day! The sale officially starts at 3pm ET (noon pacific) today and goes for 36 hours, and will feature so many deals (I heard more than a million!) but the truth is not all of them are actually great deals–so we’ll be scouting out the sale and sharing our favorites as updates to this post, as well as swipe ups in Instagram Stories @chrislovesjulia. (Let me know in the comments if there is something in particular you’re looking for and I’ll keep an eye out!) The other good news is Amazon extended the sale to more countries than ever–so it’s truly a worldwide sale day.
If you’re unfamiliar, Prime Day is Amazon’s biggest sale day of the year — much like Black Friday in July. More than a million products will be discounted, but not all at the same time, and not all for the duration of the event. Some will be available only during certain hours as “lightning deals”, for example, while others may/absolutely will sell out. Last year, most of the things I shared from toys, to back-to-school supplies to my favorite duvet inserts!–sold out within 30 minutes.
The sale runs through 11:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday night, July 17 and you, technically, need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber to take advantage of Prime Day deals. (I think there are some exceptions, but either way, are there people that aren’t Prime members?) If you aren’t currently an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can try it for 30 days FREE here.
Below, we’ll keep a list of the best/our favorite deals divided by section, once we get a good list going. We’ll be updating this list all day long so keep checking back!

Do you use the iRobot Roomba in your house? Looking to gift one for Christmas! Thank you!
We just bought the video monitor to use in our baby’s room! So glad you posted about it- we’re first time expecting parents and you basically just saved us hundreds of dollars. haha. Can’t wait to use it! Thank you!
Hi!! I love your reco’s so i will DEF be checking back throughout the day tomorrow. One thought, maybe break up the suggestions between lightning deals vs deal of the day. Lightning deals sell out quick so as we go through the list, we’ll be able to know right away if we missed out versus if the deal is ongoing. Thanks for putting the list together and fingers crossed for great deals tomorrow!
Have you read any of the reviews on that video/baby monitor about the confidentiality concerns? I read a few about how the company can access your videos, web history, etc. and it scared me away from the purchase! Not that we have anything to hide, but kind of creeps me out!
Is anyone else having problems accessing the Amazon website? I can’t see any of the Prime Day deals.
Hi Julia! I’m looking for a big comfy fashionable chair for my living room. Something kind of like the 2 you have in yours. Thanks!!
Oh! Very intrigued by the camera you use as your monitor! Do you think it would work for twins in the same room or that I would need two cameras? (Looks like they can hook up to one feed so that would work!)
Thanks for this – just got my sis a baby gift!!
I’m hoping for a deal on the Keurig K250 – fingers crossed!
Please tell me you’ve browsed the customer review images for that nuLOOM Diamonds rug! I have so many questions about what’s happening in the image with the cat! Is that normal behavior for cat people? Is it a celebrity cat??
I’m looking for a Murphy Bed, cool gifts for a pair of five-year-old twins, and outdoor chairs! xo
Back to school stuff would be great! First time school parent right here :)
I’m definitely going to be refreshing this page often today, you always find the best stuff at sales! If you see any great deals on well-reviewed robot vaccuums, I’m going to have a very hard time resisting the buy now button.
Looking for an air fryer and down comforter!
This should be a holiday! I am looking for quality bed linens and smart home devices!
I’m not sure if they are going on sale, but check out the Dream Fit brand. The bottom sheet has an extra elastic band that really does hold the sheet on the bed. An added benefit is that the extra bands are two different colors so you know to put one color at the head of the bed and the other color at the foot. They are wonderful sheets!
Ooooohhhh, what a good idea! Thanks! I will check them out.
I’ve got my eye on the Instant Pot!
Looking for a good toaster oven. Not sexy, I know, but I haven’t bought one in years and it’s time. :)
Hi Julia! I’m looking for a good quality oversized throw blanket in a neutral color for my living room!
Thanks for putting his together! I’m looking for a cozy 8×10 rug for our basement. Do you know of any on amazon?
Looking for a king size headboard or bed and a food processor!
THANK YOU! I just went to amazon to start scoping stuff out and it was so overwhelming. Will check back on your list often.
Looking for an electric toothbrush and smart bulbs! Thanks for all the work you guys put in!!
Fingers crossed the Bissell Crosswave Pet is on sale!!
Hi! I am looking for a pair of inexpensive, wall mounted, white outdoor speakers. Thanks!
Yes! Would also be interested in these plus some backyard lights.
My husband has been wanting to get camping chairs – so I will be looking for a good pair that is lightweight to travel with but still comfortable. Thank you for the updates!!
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
