These Five Prime Day Sales Are Actually Worth It

Amazon devices, the squatty potty, sneakers, laptops and diapers.

Amazon Prime Day, the day when Amazon posts thousands of deals on things you don't need or want and a couple great deals for things you actually do, is here!

We've waded through the muck and found some of the best deals in every category, and there are five main things worth their weight in savings: Amazon devices, sneakers, the squatty potty, select laptops, and diapers.

To get these deals you have to be a Prime member, so if you aren't already, sign up for a free 30-day trial.

1. Amazon Echo, Tap, Kindle, or Firestick

If you've been wanting to try or upgrade any of your Amazon devices, the best deals from Prime Day are on Amazon's own devices.

- Save $50 off the Amazon Echo and $30 on the Tap

- Save $15 off Amazon Fire TV Stick or Fire TV Stick with voice remote

- Get a Fire Tablet starting at $33 or a Fire Kids Edition at $69.99

- Save $30 on a Kindle Paperwhite

There are a limited number of these available and promotional pricing ends after Prime Day. And while all of these are occasionally discounted throughout the year, this will likely be the lowest you'll see them until next Prime Day. If you haven't read about Amazon's smart speakers, check out our review of the Echo and the Tap.

2. Sneakers

Among the 100,000-plus sale items on Prime Day, there are tons of athletic sneakers all at 60% off. Sales are on Men's and Women's brands like ASICS, New Balance and Adidas, and new styles should be added through the day. Check them all out here.

3. Squatty Potty

In case you weren't aware how bad you are at pooping, this investment will change your bathroom experience for good. We've reviewed it before and can't say enough. Buy the 7-inch white version on Prime Day for $18 for you and everyone you know who poops.

4. Notebook or Chromebook

If you're in the market for a Lenovo Thinkpad or Chromebook and don't want to wait for the Black Friday discounts, this might be the time to go for it. The best sales on these include:

- ASUS C200MA Chromebook 11.6-Inch for $179.99

- Toshiba Chromebook 2, 2015 Edition for $399.99

- Lenovo Thinkpad Flex 3 15.6-Inch Convertible Notebook, HD Touchscreen for $649.99

- Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260 12.5-Inch Convertible Ultrabook With Full-HD IPS Touchscreen for $799.99

There are a limited number and new sales should be added through the day. Check out all the Prime Day deals on laptops here.

5. Diapers

If you're a person who buys diapers, you'll know how much they start to add up. Prime Day includes 35% Pampers Swaddlers, Baby Dry, and Cruisers and 50% off Seventh Generation Free & Clear, and when that includes free two-day shipping, that might be the best deal of all if you have the room to stock up. See all available diaper deals here.
