Five Amazon Prime Day Deals Moms Will Love
Keep in mind that all the awesome deals you will find for Prime Day are for Prime Members only. If you aren’t an Amazon Prime member, this is a great time to give it a try because you can try it out for FREE for 30 days! Not only do you get that incredible two-day shipping on qualifying items with no order minimum, you also get access to the streaming services of Amazon Video, Amazon Photos and more!
1. Audible for 3 months at 66% off!
Some people love their podcasts and are subscribed to dozens that they listen to all the time. As for me, I am a bookworm who never seems to have enough time to read as much as I would like. Audible has been a game-changer for me because I can listen to books when I drive, as I get ready in the morning, or go about my normal day. Audible has been essential to helping me read more!
For Prime Day, new Audible subscribers can try Audible for just $4.95/month for the first three months, which essentially works out to a $10 savings per month for three months. Each month, you get one credit for an audiobook (that you keep!) plus two Audible Originals for $14.95 per month. After the initial three months, you can either cancel or continue for $14.95/month.
One of my favorite things about Audible is that if it turns out that I don’t like a book as much as I thought I would, I can return it and get my credit back to my account, no questions asked! Since things like narration can make such an impact on how much I enjoy a book, this really takes the pressure off and allows me to try new books outside of my comfort zone risk-free!
2. Amazon Echo Dot for $22 or Echo Dot Kids Edition for $45
A savings of almost $28 on the Echo Dot definitely makes me pay attention! We love using Amazon devices in our house to play music (more on that deal later), communicate as a family from one floor of the house to another, and even to manage household devices! We also use them to listen to audiobooks on our Audible account, check the weather or sports scores, play games as a family (try the “Harry Potter quiz!”) and more. Gone are the days of screaming, “KIDDDDSSS! COME UP FOR DINNER!!!” Instead, we drop in on the Echo Dot in the basement and can turn off the TV without lifting a finger or raising our voice.
BONUS: Check out the deals on the Echo Show if you have a video monitor in your child’s room. It’s fantastic to be able to just say, “Alexa, show me the nursery” and boom – there’s the video! Also works great if you have a video doorbell.
Prime Day Deals on Amazon Echo Devices:
- Echo Dot for $22(56% off regular price)
- Echo Dot Kids Edition for $45 with One Year of FaceTime Unlimited (36% savings)
- Save $90 on Echo Show + Smart Plug Combo
3. Instant Pot for $56
If you haven’t heard of the Instant Pot yet, you haven’t been paying attention. It is the pressure cooker that is all the rage in households across the country that can completely revolutionize the way you and your family make meals. The 6-quart version is on sale for just $56 (a savings of more than $40!) for Prime Day, so if you’ve been wanting to take the Instant Pot out for a spin, this is the time to do it! And may we recommend our Instant Pot Beef Stew Recipe?
4. 30% Off Prime Book Box for Kids
One of our goals as parents has always been to encourage our kids to be confident readers and nothing helps a kid fall in love with reading better than finding the books that truly excite them! The Prime Book Box for Kids takes the guesswork out of selecting new books your kids will love and delivers new books right to your door!
Get your first box for just $13.99, which is a full 30% off the regular price! Since the books in the box are already marked down by 40%, this makes this quite the steal for your little readers. You determine how often your boxes are shipped — every 1, 2, or 3 months — and your child can look forward to a box of books hand-selected specifically for them in each shipment. If you want to swap out some of the books that have been selected for your child, it’s easy to do before it ships. It’s the love of reading, delivered!
Note: The 30% off deal is only for your family’s first box and each box is curated by age.
5. Amazon Music Unlimited – 4 months for 99 cents!
We use Amazon Music Unlimited every single day in our family! We stream music of all kinds on the Amazon Echo on our kitchen counter for dining room dance parties and I rely on it for music in my office, from my phone, and everywhere I go. I love that I can play everything from the latest popular hits to white noise or nature sounds and everything in between. Nearly every song you can think of can be found on Amazon Music!
With this deal, new subscribers can try out Amazon Music Unlimited at an insane price – 4 months for 99 cents! Already have an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription? Prime Day also gets you upgrade deals like a discount on the Family Subscription and more! This music streaming works flawlessly with that Echo Dot- Kids Edition that we chatted about earlier, making sure your kids can play their favorite music but with the content filters and controls parents want. After the promo period, you can choose to cancel or continue your subscription at $7.99/month.
