Apple AirTag 4 Pack

I’m traumatized after losing my bag at the airport recently, which is exactly why I’m picking up a pack of AirTags during the sale. Knowing that I will be doing a lot of traveling this holiday season, I feel comfortable knowing that I will be able to track my bags whether they get to me safely… or not. — Stephanie Griffin, social manager

$99.95 From $69.95 at Amazon


Instant cameras make it easy to commemorate anything, whether it’s a momentous event or an everyday photo. I don’t need a lot of fancy features, so this simple model seems like the perfect option. Plus, the pictures are mini-sized, which I love. The camera, which was discontinued by Fujifilm, usually hovers around $75, but I’m hoping it will be under $60 during the Prime Early Access Sale. — Caroline Curran, Associate Editor for Deals

CHI Handheld Garment Steamer

When you travel, there is nothing worse than arriving at your destination to find your clothes completely wrinkled and no sign of an iron nearby.

Apple iPhone 14 Pro transparent case with MagSafe​​​​​​

I have tried Apple’s silicone case for my new one iPhone 14 Pro, and while it provides good protection, it also covers up the phone’s beautiful Deep Purple color. That’s why I’m really hoping to get my hands on one of Apple’s clear MagSafe cases, which will let me show off my phone’s fancy new hues without worrying about any nasty bumps or drops. — Mike Andronico, Senior Tech Writer

$13.49 at Amazon


It seems like every major sale event I check for the Goshi Shower Towel is discounted. It’s good to replace them every six months or so, which means I’m always on the lookout for price cuts. I love them so much and they really do changed the way I bathe forever. — Kai Burkhardt, Associate Editor

$65 at Amazon

Bala bracelet

I’ve had my eye on these cute wrist/ankle weights for a while, and since I’ve been committed to doing mental health walks consistently, these would definitely raise the bar to hot girl walk status. Even better if I can get them for sale. —Sophie Shaw, associate beauty editor

Big Blanket Co.

I have this huge blanket – it’s literally 10 feet long – thrown over my couch and I love it so much that I’ve been dragging it to my bed every night now that it’s gotten cold. It’s quite expensive, but I desperately want another one, so I’ll keep an eye out for it to go on sale. — Stephanie Griffin, social manager

$58 at Amazon

Sony SRS-XB13 portable compact speaker

I’m a big fan of the Sony XB13 speaker – it really is best portable speaker for frequent travelers.

$49.99 $47.22 at Amazon

Hori Nintendo Switch Split Pad Pro

I love kicking back on the couch (or on the occasional plane ride) with my Nintendo Switch in handheld mode, but the smaller buttons often make my hands feel cramped. I’ve long been tempted to pick up Hori’s Split Pad Pro, which gives you a more ergonomic full-size controller experience that you can still take on the go. If it falls under the Prime Early Access sale, I may finally pull the trigger. — Mike Andronico, Senior Tech Writer

$39.99 $27.99 at Amazon

Color farm

I’ve had my eye on this viral product since I saw it on TikTok last month.

UGG shoe care kit

I recently bought two new pairs of maroon Uggs, and considering my old boots were completely destroyed by the snow last winter, I want to keep them as long as possible. I’m going to buy the set whether they go on sale or not, but I’m hoping the price drops below $35 so I can save some money while I’m at it. — Stephanie Griffin, social manager
