 Summary List Placement

Amazon’s Prime Day has some of the best discounts you’ll find online all year.
Cult-favorite products like the Instant Pot drop to all-time lows, and Amazon releases new lightning deals every few minutes across its categories — from tech to home goods. 
On Prime Day last year, Business Insider readers took advantage of a lot of deals — but these 30 are the ones they bought the most of. 
If you’re applying a fastidious longterm strategy to Prime Day 2020, this isn’t a bad place to get ideas for your own wish list. We’ve seen discounts on most of these products consistently for the last few years of the event. 

Prime Day may be Amazon’s made-up retail holiday, but it also happens to play host to some of the best sales and deals you’ll see on products all year.

Last year’s Prime Day took place on July 15-16. It was live for 48 hours — a departure from the 36 hours of deals we saw in 2018. Prime Day 2020 is rumored to take place in October this year, after much delay.

Every year, the Insider Picks team sorts through Amazon’s more than 1 million deals in real-time on Prime Day to share the top 0.1% of discounts.

But once Prime Day is over, we like to go back and see which deals resonated most with Business Insider readers. Firstly, because it helps us get better at finding the sort of deals we should try to highlight for you during future Prime Days; secondly, because it’s fascinating that the LifeStraw keeps making the list year after year.

Take a look at the 30 deals Business Insider readers bought the most during last year’s Amazon Prime Day, starting with the most popular.

Among our own readers, the best seller was a promotional deal Amazon ran on Kindle Unlimited — a departure from past years dominated by tech. With the deal, Prime members who hadn’t yet tried the service could sign up for three months of Kindle Unlimited, and get access to over 1 million books, for free. The service usually goes for $30 for the same time frame.
