We’re in the home stretch of October Prime Day, so if you’ve been hesitating to head to checkout, don’t delay. But the good news is that many of our favorite deals are still live and available to shop. Some standouts include toys, which are such a major category that we asked our senior writer Liza Corsillo to pick her favorite Prime Day toy deals in a separate post. We also found a bunch of deals on things for your home, like Dyson vacuums and Vitamix blenders, so we did a huge roundup of those here.

But to make this roundup as easy for you to navigate as possible, I’ve broken out our best-of-the-best picks into 16 categories below. We won’t be doing many in-depth roundups this go-around, so this page will be your one-stop shop for all our favorite finds from the sale. We do have a roundup of everything on sale that we’ve written about and some delightful under-$50 finds.

I’m logging out for the evening to do some last-minute October Prime Day shopping of my own and won’t be checking this page again — so prices and stock availability may change by the time you read this. I’ll be back tomorrow morning to give you the rundown on the best sales to shop post October Prime Day. And to ensure you really don’t miss anything, why not sign up for our newsletter, too? We feature excellent deals in our email newsletter every day, so subscribe to keep up with all of our coverage.

Best Home October Prime Day Deals

I’ve broken out the better home deals into the categories above — like vacuums and bedding — but you can also find a selection of air purifiers, rugs, and my elegant Vitruvi essential-oil diffuser below. For even more home deals, check out our roundup here.

Best Sleep October Prime Day Deals

Bedding is always popular with our readers during Prime Day, and there are quite a few best sellers in the mix, including our best overall memory-foam pillow from Coop Home Goods.

Best Vacuum October Prime Day Deals

There’s a vacuum for every kind of person on sale for October Prime Day, whether you’re looking for a handheld option for smaller messes or a wet-dry vacuum for homes with spill-prone children. If you’re looking for a cordless option, you can’t go wrong with one of the many Dysons that are on sale. As a Roomba owner, I’d suggest you check out one of the many robot vacuums on sale; it makes life a lot easier when you don’t have to any of the heavy lifting. And as the owner of some very hairy cats, I’m also enticed by the Bissell carpet and upholstery cleaner, which was has been one of the most popular products with Strategist readers during this year’s October Prime Day.

Best Kitchen October Prime Day Deals

If you’re in the market for a pricey kitchen appliance, now is the time to find some really good deals. One of our best blenders, the Vitamix 5200, has been the most popular purchase with Strategist readers during this October Prime Day. I tend to dig around the pantry section on Prime Day, and I spotted some of my favorite items, like Fly by Jing’s chili crisp and Poppi’s low-sugar soda, on sale.

Best Travel October Prime Day Deals

One of last Prime Day’s best sellers, the Trtl travel pillow, is on sale again for the best price I’ve seen in months. For short trips, our best (less expensive) weekend bag is 35 percent off.
