But here’s a perk many folks don't know about: Prime membership affords you entry into a secret section of Amazon sales. What? Yup, it's true: There's a hidden hub of 'Just For Prime' deals waiting to be explored. And the key to the kingdom is nothing more than a Prime membership.
Not yet a Prime member? Sign up for a free 30-day trial to access this treasure trove of discounts — and benefit from all the other Prime perks, including free two-day shipping.

Hold onto your hats, folks: Amazon has this Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV — Fire TV Edition on sale for just $100 for Prime members only! This standout set delivers eye-popping colors and exceptional image quality — rare at this price. The audio, too, is top notch — and Alexa is included in the remote. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling through a grid of movie titles, you can simply say, 'Alexa, play One Night in Miami,' and she’ll take care of the rest.
"...very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV," says a happy Amazon shopper. "As far as clarity goes, I believe HD720p is plenty for this screen size. I’m a bit of a TV snob and the lower clarity is not noticeable in this size." If you're looking for a compact set for a bedroom or kitchen, you've found it right here.

Tea time just got easier. With the press of a button, you can have your brew turn out exactly as you like it. The Buydeem K2423 Electric Kettle boils up to 1.2 liters of water and keeps it warm until you're ready to pour. Right now it's on sale from $160 to just $98 with the on-page coupon for Prime members only. That's more than 60 percent off.
Handy presets for different types of tea — black, herbal, oolong, white and green, ensure a perfect cup every time. And this compact appliance is easy on the eyes, too.
Shoppers say it can compete with the big boys: "I absolutely love this machine," raved a five-star reviewer. "[It is] hands-down better than the more expensive Breville. The kettle is lighter-weight, the handle is easier to hold and more comfortable, it has all the same features (keep warm for 60 minutes, customize steep time, etc.), the filter basket is much larger, allowing the leaves more room to steep...."

On sale for $15 for Prime members only (down from $25), the Amazon Smart Plug is an ingenious doodad that fits between a power socket and an appliance like a coffeemaker, TV or lamp, enabling you to operate said device with your phone or your smart-home hub.

More than 355,900 five-star reviewers have sung its praises. "Got this smart plug so I can remotely turn appliances and lights on and off in an Alzheimer's patient's home," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper.

On sale for $70 for Prime members only (was $100), the Amazon Halo — made from a woven blend of polyester and nylon with spandex and silicone — has all the bells and whistles of any high-end fitness tracker. You can scan and manage your body composition and BMI (body mass index) via smartphone, track health stats and movement, and even tweak your voice tone for energy and positivity.
All of your health stats are viewable on the Halo app, too — and with unrivaled accuracy, thanks to partnerships with the American Heart Association, WeightWatchers and more. Best of all, it has an incredible battery life of up to seven days per charge — a whole week!
“I like the fact that this band doesn't have a face like other fitness bands or smart watches,” raved a satisfied shopper. “I find that it limits my electronics viewing time to the time that I am working out or anything else health related. I don't know about you, but for me another screen, even if worn on a wrist, is just not necessary!”

If you ever wanted Alexa in your car, here’s your chance. The Echo Auto is a clever little gizmo that instantly makes your old vehicle smart. It connects to your car's stereo via auxiliary input and pairs to your phone with Bluetooth. Then you can talk to Alexa just like at home.
No worries about the roar of you engine, the wind, or traffic getting in the way of your voice. The Echo Auto — which is on sale for $15, or $35 off for Prime members only — is designed with eight mighty microphones, so it can clearly pick up voice commands. It’s absolutely genius for making hands-free phone calls and calling up your favorite driving tunes on Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and more.
"I'm actually impressed with this little device," wrote a delighted five-star Amazon reviewer. "I've tried other car Alexa-enabled devices but they've always struggled to pick up my voice over noises such as the radio, a window being down or other people chatting in the car. [This device] always picks up my voice no matter the sound level."

Formerly $149, the Bobbito Massage Gun is on sale for just $49 with the on-page coupon for Prime members only. This handy tool lets you knead out tight spots and tough knots in neck, shoulders, back, legs, feet and more.
And no need to enlist the help of a friend — you can use it on yourself, easily and safely. It's designed with 20 levels of intensity, and comes with six attachments to help you tackle all sorts of problem areas. A handy carrying case keeps everything together. And some shoppers say using this massage gun is better than going to a chiropractor.
"Great massager! My back is now happy! I’ve had back pain for years.... Stretches, chiropractors, and massages only work for a short time, then the pain comes back shortly after," shared a shopper. "...This massager has been great.... It’s lightweight and holds a charge for a long time..."
And at this Prime-only price? It's an absolute steal.

The latest Echo Buds feature active noise-canceling (features that were not available with the extremely popular first generation). Now you can enjoy your favorite music and podcasts in peace — free from annoying background noise. If that sounds good to you, then you can score a pair for $80 with standard charging case (or $100 with wireless charging case) for Prime members only.
The second generation Echo Buds are built for long-lasting comfort with a new, sleeker design that fits securely in your ears (unlike Apple AirPods). These babies are durable and tough, with up to 15 hours of battery life per charge (and an extra two hours with a 15-minute quick charge). They also deliver high-quality audio that's well-balanced and clear with deep bass. And best of all, your trusty Alexa voice assistant is built-in.
"A quality pair of buds. Out of the box, setup was easy," wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. "I already had the Alexa app on my phone, so all it took was having the app open while I opened the case on the new ear buds. The setup was quick and easy...The audio playback is excellent. Experimented with some heavy metal and classical, and the sounds were great. Even the classics like Sinatra sounded great, with the vocals loud and clear."

On sale for $49 for Prime members only (was $70), the Luna Controller is wireless with a super-grippy and comfortable design that's made for Luna, Amazon's new high-speed cloud gaming platform that offers hundreds of games from top publishers. Think of it as Prime Video, but for gaming. And best of all?

The controller has a pair of thumbsticks for precision, dual fast-action bumpers and triggers at the top (four in total), four responsive action buttons and an accurate four-way D-pad. The controller is also re-mappable to best suit your gaming experience.
Some shoppers say that this controller is better than Microsoft's. "Wow! The best controller I have ever owned," raved a gamer. "Better build quality than the original Xbox X controllers. They feel great in the hands and trying to perform precise sniper aiming is a joy as the thumbsticks offer the perfect balance of resistance and control. To set up Luna controllers...is really simple and took me less than five minutes...this is a hidden gem of controllers!"
