Join Hafta-Ichi to Research the article “5 Everyday Essentials Worth Stocking Up on During Prime Day”
It goes without saying that the pandemic has disrupted a lot over the course of the last seven months, changing how we view the world—including what we now think of as everyday essentials. Would you have considered an arsenal of board games an absolute must-have back in February? But now, for many people, it’s unthinkable not to. The Wirecutter deals team knows that you never planned to need all this new stuff, which is why we’ve pawed through every Prime Day deal out there to find you the best prices on 2020’s everyday essentials… because if you’ve got to stock up to make it through the impending winter, you might as well do it for less. Here are the best deals we’ve found so far.
Keep your smile white
Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips Kit
Deal price: $28; street price: $45
Whether you hate Zoom or love it, the truth of the matter is that virtual meetings are here to stay. And though showing up for your 9am meeting in your jammy bottoms is a huge perk of those video calls, the focus on your head and shoulders is not. Distract your coworkers from your tousled ’do with a dazzling set of pearly whites. Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips are a low-tech and affordable way to brighten your smile at home. They may take a little longer to work than other teeth-whitening methods, but if you’ve got the time (and would prefer to avoid the dentist), this deal brings these Crest strips down to the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this kit.

Trim your hedges
Panasonic Electric Body Hair Trimmer and Groomer for Men ER-GK60-S
Deal price: $40; street price: $55
There may be a lot out of your control right now, but your appearance doesn’t have to be. And though clean-shaven isn’t every person’s idea of sexy (and that’s perfectly fine), some folks feel better after they’ve gotten rid of any excess body hair. If that sounds like you, you’ll need a reliable body hair trimmer to get the job done. The Panasonic Electric Body Hair Trimmer and Groomer for Men, our runner-up pick, is an easy-to-use, water-resistant trimmer that effortlessly (and quietly) cuts through pubic hair in a single pass. Because it has multiple trimmer attachments, the Panasonic is versatile enough to toggle between light landscaping and clearing the entire field. And though this trimmer is marketed towards men, our female testers actually found it easier to maneuver and more powerful than our top pick. This Prime Day matches the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this trimmer, making now a good opportunity to pick up an easily maneuverable trimmer for less.

A fast-working coffee grinder
There are two kinds of people in this world—folks who grind their coffee beans each morning and folks who have never experienced the magic of a truly fresh cup of joe. If you’re part of the bean-grinding club (or you’d like a membership), an electric burr grinder will make your morning routine that much easier. The OXO Brew Conical Burr Coffee Grinder is a compact, capable grinder that can be relied on for a consistent, speedy performance. Though it doesn’t grind as evenly as our other picks, the OXO comes with a wider range of functions than other budget grinders. Our budget pick also comes equipped with a timer, a removable hopper, and a mechanism to help reduce static build-up as your coffee grinds. For folks looking for a speedier way to grind coffee in the morning, the OXO is now on sale for $75 when you use the code THANKYOU at checkout—but this deal will only be around until the end of the day, so act fast if you’re thinking of picking one up.

A comfortable-to-wear sleep mask
It’s already hard enough to fall asleep these days with all those anxious thoughts bouncing around your mind—you don’t need anything else, like the sliver of light that streams in through the slats of your blinds, to distract you. If you’re yearning for the days when you used to fall asleep fast (and stay that way through the night), a sleep mask might be able to help. The Nidra Deep Rest Eye Mask, now down to $9 in black, is the best sleep mask we’ve tested. Lightweight and adjustable, the Nidra has a unique, contoured design that gives your eyes space to flutter underneath. These deep eyecups, along with the mask’s unstructured nose gap and Velcro strap, make the Nidra a better fit for a wide variety of faces. As our top pick, the light-blocking Nidra works best for folks who sleep on their backs or sides—if that sounds like you, this deal makes now a great time to pick up a cheap way to sleep better at night.

Spend $40, get $10 free
The best deals are usually the ones that involve free stuff—and there’s nothing better than when that freebie is money. As part of a Prime Day promotion, Amazon is offering $10 free when you spend $40 on gift cards to the site. If you already plan to shop the behemoth’s Prime Day sale, there’s little argument against this deal: You’re likely already planning to spend at least $40 on Wirecutter picks (😉), so you may as well get an extra $10 to play with while you’re at it. But whether you plan to stock up on the essentials now (and you should, since the deals are hot) or would rather save that $50 for a future rainy day, act fast since this offer will only stick around through the end of the day.
