What Brad’s Deals Editors Are Buying on Prime Day
Our deal editors are researching, comparing prices, and looking through pricing history every single day as part of their job. They know a truly good deal at first glance and know when to pass on a deal because it’s just not worth the hype. While finding deals for our readers during Amazon Prime Day, it’s inevitable that they’ll find something for themselves during the search. Read more to find out which Prime Day deals Brad’s Deals editors consider to be worth their own hard-earned money.
$10 Credit for $40 in Gift Cards
Casey, our managing editor, couldn’t pass up this deal because as she puts it, “It’s free money.” Buy a gift card for a store you shop frequently (so you can just use it next time you shop there) and get the $10 credit to treat yourself to something special! This credit can only be earned once per Prime account.

Our Thoughts on Amazon Prime Day 2020
With the move from July to October this year, we didn’t quite know what to expect for Prime Day. But we’ve been pleasantly surprised. Amazon has made shopping and browsing their Prime Deals easier and faster this year and we were able to share quite a few great deals before they sold out. Having it in October has also gotten us really excited for Black Friday and all the holiday sales still to come!
