Wendy’s (Amazon Prime) Picks


It’s Amazon Prime Day, which is a day Amazon made up to get people to sign up for their Prime service by offering discounts on lots of great items. I happen to think Prime is a wonderful service and recommend it anyway, but if you’re looking for incentives beyond free and fast shipping, check out some of these deals, including a number of items that you’ve seen right here in past Wendy’s Picks columns and Readers Recs:

Save 34% on a Roomba! I have one of these and it’s seriously so great. I set it loose every other day as we head out and it runs round the apartment for an hour, and then we come home to a clean home with the Roomba (usually) safely docked at its charging station. UPDATE: That model sold out quickly; try this one.

The Instant Pot that Ladybug recommended a few weeks ago is marked down 42%.

This KitchenAid is 29% off.

This card game is 25% off and is for people who “are into kittens and explosions.” I don’t know about the second part, but I think most of us fit the first part.

I recommended this shimmery dry oil after a friend gave it to me for my birthday last year. It’s 35% off.

This beautiful Stila makeup set is 50% off with a Prime membership. Holla!

The world’s most comfortable maternity pillow is 60% off.

This Amazon Echo is 28% off.

Over half off these stylish Seven for All Mankind skinny jeans.

And over half off the trendy Fajllraven Kanken Daypacks.

    I got the Roomba based on recommendations here, and I can honestly say my house has never been cleaner. It’s not that I was dirty, it just gets into the nooks and crannies I never bothered with (like under my couches and bed). So worth it.

      That reminds me, I should set up my roomba tonight. It doesn’t do so well with our slanted chair legs and it gets confused if I just let it loose on the main floor, but with a little work setting it up, it does a good job!

    I bought the Instant Pot. A facebook friend also recommended it and the review seem awesome. Fast cooking of fresh food – yes please!

    Oh man. I think I need to stay away from prime day. I just bought a Roomba. On the plus side, I have been wanting one for about 5 years.

    I’ve had a Roomba for years but the battery went kaput right before I moved in October and I never replaced it. Just bought a replacement battery! Thanks for the Roomba reminder!

    Oh hell yes! Exploding Kittens is such a fun game, you guys. There is also a phone app! If you buy the game, I recommend the NSFW version. It’s hilarious.

      It’s such a fun game! I got an alert from the makers today that they’ve created their first expansion pack called Imploding Kittens.
