Consumer Reports says now is the best time to buy blenders and other kitchen appliances and gadgets, especially since Amazon Prime Day is offering deep discounts and retail competitors are charging in with sales:
- Walmart is holding its Deals for Days 2021
- Wayfair has its June Clearance Event with kitchenware up to 55% off
- Macy’s is offering “epic” Two Day Only Specials, which include everything for your home, from a $54.95 Instant Pot (save 54%) to a $99.99 wine preservation system (save 49%)
- Select All-Clad and Le Creuset pieces are on sale for over 50% on some items through Tuesday from Sur La Table. For example, this All-Clad non-stick three-pan set (8, 10 and 12 inch) are on sale for $100 instead of the regular $225 price tag. The All-Clad non-stick two-pan set (8 and 10 inch) are just $60 instead of $120.
Amazon Prime Day, the retail giant’s biggest sale of the year, has already started and continues to offer more than one million deals, from household appliances to the hottest technology, until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, June 22.
It should be no surprise that Amazon is discounting its own products, especially smart devices such as Fire Tablets, Fire TV, Kindle E-readers and Echo and Alexa Devices. If you’re ever going to want an Alexa-activated device, now is the time.
