Join Hafta-Ichi to Research the article “6 Amazon Prime Day Mega-Discounts of 50% or More”
You know what’s better than a discount? A mega-discount. We’re rounding up tons of great Amazon Prime Day deals on Wirecutter-approved gadgets and gear, but the mega-discounts below are the steepest we’ve seen. These are products that have had their prices cut—nay, SLASHED—by 50 percent or more. Because it’s all well and good to say, “I just saved $2 on a salad spinner,” but tweeting “I JUST SAVED 97% ON AN AMAZON MUSIC SUBSCRIPTION, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH YOUR LIFE?” is a move worthy of retweets and respect.
An easy-to-use streaming service
If you aren’t happy with your Spotify subscription, you haven’t bought into the Apple music universe yet, and Jay-Z and Beyoncé haven’t convinced you to sign up for Tidal for their surprise album drops, then give Amazon Music a try. Amazon Music Unlimited is a giant in the music streaming service space, and for good reason: It has 60 million songs available for you to stream at your leisure, and it’s super easy. You can even use Alexa to find the songs you’re looking for. (My editor’s 4-year-old daughter can do it. If she can, you can.) Now, for one whole buck (seriously, that’s it), you can use Amazon Music for the next four months.
A kitchen appliance that makes great meals simply
Here at Wirecutter, we love the Instant Pot. With its set-it-and-forget-it simplicity, the Instant Pot makes it a cinch to whip up gourmet-tasting meals in just a few minutes. While the Instant Pot Duo 6-Quart is the one that’s walked away with the electric pressure cooker crown, we love every iteration of it—including the Instant Pot Ultra Mini 3-Quart, which we think is a good option for one or two people, or folks with limited kitchen storage. As long as you’re cooking foods in small quantities, this is the one to buy.

Wirelessly charge your gadgets
Who wants to plug their phone in anymore? All those tangled cables are just an annoying mess. And the RAVPower Fast Wireless Charger (RP-PC058) is a great choice if you want to lay your phone flat while it charges cord-free. It charges quickly (a typical smartphone will go from empty to 50 percent in about an hour), and better still, laying your phone flat is a great way to keep you from staring at it constantly. Let your phone charge facing the ceiling. Be free.

The digital library of your dreams
If you’ve recently purchased an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, our favorite ebook reader, you’ll know that one of the reasons we love it so much is Kindle’s Unlimited service, which gives you on-demand access to a huge catalog of books for a flat rate every month. And right now, that rate is flatter than ever—just $30 for six months, half of its usual $60, as long as you don’t already have an existing subscription. Sure, there are tons of extraordinary and sophisticated works of literature available, but might I recommend a cookbook to accompany your earlier Instant Pot Ultra Mini 3-Quart purchase?

PlayStation Plus 1-Year Membership (Digital Delivery)
Deal price: $30; street price: $60
The Sony PlayStation 4 is our favorite gaming console for most people because it offers a huge library of exclusive games. Even better though is its subscription service, Playstation Plus—offered here for half its usual price—which allows you to play online multiplayer and choose two free games a month to play for as long as you remain a member (which, in this case, will mean at least a full year). You can show off this deal to your friends with members-only cosmetics and weapons in games like Fortnite. Plus, Sony offers 100 GB of cloud storage with every Playstation Plus membership so you can save your game’s progress anytime, anywhere.

Perform garage magic
My childhood was largely happy and carefree. When I did worry, it was primarily around whether or not the garage door was closed and whether my parents would, as a result, have to “turn the car around” after we’d left the house. If Chamberlain had made the MyQ then, we would’ve been able to put that tragic ritual to bed and closed the garage door from anywhere with the help of the Chamberlain MyQ Smart Garage Hub. Of all the controllers we tested, the MyQ was the quickest and easiest to install; plus, it was super easy to configure and use. Keep in mind that there’s no Alexa support, though it does work with Google Assistant, IFTTT, and a few other smart platforms.
