It’s Prime Day again! Here’s a running list of deals that I’m seeing that I think will benefit your favorite traveler (as well as some for the photographers out there). Come back to this post as I update it with other deals that I see!

Before the deals…make sure you have Amazon Prime
I’ve had Amazon Prime for years and think it’s worth the money for free 1-2 day shipping and Amazon Prime Video. If you don’t have Amazon Prime and would like to participate in some of these deals, click the box below for a free 30-day trial!
Now, on to the deals!
1. Belkin 3-plug power outlet and USB hub – 20% off
This is a mainstay on my annual Christmas gift list, and for good reason: it’s small, ruthlessly simple, and really cheap. Normally $20, it’s $16 for Prime Day (you should see the modified price in the cart)
I take these things everywhere in the world and have given probably 20 out as gifts. My original one is still working as well as the 2-3 I’ve bought since then, so I’ve been more than pleased with the durability. It’s just the perfect companion for me since I have a shocking amount of electronic devices I bring with me on the road.
2. Bose QC35II Wireless Bluetooth Noise-Cancelling Headphones – 43% off
One of the other mainstays on my annual Christmas gift list! I’ve had Bose wireless headphones for years and traveling just doesn’t feel the same without them. The QC35II headphones are wonderful with great battery life, lovely sound, and the fold up for a relatively small storage size. For Prime Day the price has been reduced from the normal $350 to $199 in the US, which I think is a killer deal for such wonderful headphones.
3. Beats Pro Wireless Headphones – 30% off
These wireless headphones are a somewhat rival to Apple’s Airpods Pro. As an owner of the Airpods Pro, I’m planning on getting some of these and selling the AirPods Pro. I have really small ear canals and just about every in-ear bud pops out unless there’s an ear clip. Well, the Powerbeats Pro have ear clips and they also have Apple’s H1 chip, the same chip as the AirPods, so the connectivity to Apple devices is as seamless as you’d expect.
For Prime Day the Powerbeats Pro are $175, down from $250. Like I mentioned before, I’m picking these up.
4. 2-pack of high-speed 128GB Lexar SD cards – 39% off
I can never have enough SD cards, particularly UHS-II cards which have much faster read/write speeds than their slower UHS-I counterparts (which, to be fair, are cheaper). There are a lot of Prime Day deals on memory cards and I think this is the best one. A 2-pack of 128GB cards is only $51. If you don’t need the speed of a UHS-II card, there are plenty of great deals on cards all the way from 128GB-1TB in the UHS-I category, but I think this 2-pack SD card deal is a nice blend of quality, future-proofness, and price. I’ll be picking these up as well.
5. USB portable power supply – 33% off
These portable USB power supply things are my lifeblood on the road when I’m on photography trips, since all of my cameras can be recharged via USB power. I skip all the smaller 10000mAh units and go right for the big ones like this one. At only $20, down from $30 for Prime Day, I think this one is a good value. I was hoping to see a more reliable brand available for Prime Day (like Anker) but oh well, this one should work just fine.
6. And something for the new homeowners out there like me, the Roomba 981 for 33% off!
Ok so this isn’t the cheapest thing out there, but I think it’s a fantastic deal. Normally $600, the Roomba 981 is on sale for Prime Day for $400. There are cheaper Roombas out there but this one navigates in neat rows, recharges and restarts cleaning automagically, and is a bit more powerful than the cheaper ones out there. My new place is a single-story condo with a combination of hardwood floors and rugs, so I think this will be absolutely perfect for me.
