Unlike Black Friday, which always falls the day after Thanksgiving, Amazon keeps us guessing as to when, exactly, we’ll be able to snag the best Amazon Prime Day deals. But at last, the day(s) is almost near, and over here at Vogue, our team is as eager to grab some summertime steals.
This year, most of my colleagues have their eyes set on items that will help improve their health and homes, like chic, minimalist blenders and smart vacuums. Naturally, traveling once again is also top of mind. That’s why we’re also taking advantage of the offerings on noise-canceling headphones perfect for long trips and walking shoes to solidify our vacation outfits. Speaking of clothes, of course, we’ve also unearthed some treasures in the fashion department—like tried-and-true Birkenstock sandals and timeless Keds.
Below, find all these and more items we’re hoping to see on sale during Amazon Prime Day this year.

I’m hoping the Nespresso Vertuo Next Coffee and Espresso maker will go on sale. I just came back from a two-week holiday in Italy, where drinking espresso multiple times a day became a habit. I’m hoping to continue consuming delicious coffee from the comfort of my own home!
Julie Tong, Commerce Director
I’ve been on a big smoothie kick lately and love the idea of being able to finally blend these fruit concoctions at home versus overspending elsewhere for a single beverage. I have my eye on this sleek white Beast blender for Prime Day. Its chic minimalist design will fit perfectly in with my home decor and it also comes with a to-go cup and detachable infuser as an added bonus.
I’m also prone to misplacing my Airpods, and I think it’s finally time to double up on my pair.

Anyone who lives in New York City knows that the thick of summer can be quite brutal. Even if you already own an AC, the heat can still feel suffocating! I’m looking to invest in another cooling device for my apartment and have my eye on this tower fan that promises a quiet, comfortable, and refreshing breeze. To slip on and go during vacation, I know I can’t go wrong with this pair of stylish slides by The Drop.

I’ve recently tapped back into the nostalgic trend of Y2K claw clips. Though not quite like the mini butterflies fluttering atop my head in elementary and middle school, these modern iterations add an elevated touch to the otherwise flashy fad.
Tiana Attride, Associate Manager of Audience Development
The two cats I’ve adopted within the past year—and more specifically, their endless supply of hair constantly scattered all over the floor—have come together to annihilate my sanity. At last, I am broken. That’s why I’m hoping to snag a deal on a robot vacuum. Ideally, a Roomba (classic) or a Eufy (which honestly looks more like a Mac than a vacuum cleaner).
Lilah Ramzi, Commerce Editor
So many sneakers have been having a fashion moment—partly due to surprise collabs with luxury labels (looking at you, Gucci x adidas). I, meanwhile, have remained proudly devoted to my Keds Champions sneakers, a shoe that’s about as classic as it gets. First of all, they’re incredibly minimal by design with an unfussy outer, thin sole—it’s minimalism at its best. Secondly, the shoe has a starry history, with everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Audrey Hepburn sporting them on screen. Lastly, they’re shoppable on Amazon and on sale (I hope!) for APD. What’s not to like?
Abby Sjoberg, Senior Director of Audience Development and Analytics
I can’t be the only one who is still baking bread, right? Well, if my TikTok is any indication, I’m surrounded by sourdough starter lovers & passionate rye enthusiasts. That’s why for Amazon Prime Day I’ve got my eye on this—chefs kiss—beautiful bread pan from Le Creuset. This isn’t my first homeware from the storied French brand and it certainly won’t be my last. I’m confident this will take my bread-making to the next level.
Liana Satenstein, Senior Fashion Writer
I go through toothbrushes weekly…I’m a hard brusher! These are my favorite toothbrushes that can handle my GI Jane strength. So I think I’ll get these in bulk.
Lucy Dolan-Zalaznick, Senior Associate of Creative Development
Is it finally my time to buy Birkenstocks? If they go on sale during Amazon Prime Day, then the magic 8 ball says: likely yes.
Mai Morsch, Fashion Editor
I recently misplaced my beloved Mason Pearson hairbrush and will definitely be replacing it this Prime Day. I also am dying to get my hands on Andy Baraghani’s cookbook —I’ve made many of his recipes and they never disappoint!
Taylor Lashley, Social Media Manager
When I’m on a long plane or car ride, I like drowning out everything around me, so noise-canceling headphones have become my best friend. Because of this, I’ve been eyeing Apple’s AirPods Max headphones for months and if they go on sale for Prime Day, I’ll have no choice but to finally make the purchase.
Sam Ravin, Senior Associate of Creative Development
Who knew Prada was on Amazon!? I’ve been eyeing these tortoise sunnies for months, and a sale is all I need to pull the trigger—everyone, please pray to the Prime Day gods for me on July 11!
Willow Lindley, Accessories Director
I got this as a gift for my dad for Christmas and I’ve been very jealous of his herb selfies (this thing grows like crazy!) so now I’ve decided to invest in one for myself. No more animals eating my herb garden now that I can grow them indoors all year long.
