Amazon Prime Day LIVE: the best budget deals before Christmas

Amazon Prime Day Air Fryer Deals

They are all the rage. Especially since we all started googling how much it costs to run an air fryer. (opens in a new tab) and discovered that they are considerably less expensive than other cooking methods.

Goodto editor Sarah Handley says there’s no better time to strike an air fryer deal — and Prime Day is the perfect time to strike a bargain. “Not only can an air fryer offer a healthier way to cook, it’s also cheaper to run than an oven, which can help you save a lot on your energy bills when it’s used regularly,” she says. “If you’re looking to pick one up, check out sales events like Amazon Prime Day where you can probably get a better version, maybe with extra features or more capacity, for your budget.

With that in mind, here are three of the best Air Fryer deals we found today.

Prime Day Price Drop: Playmobil Christmas Ball Advent Calendar

Mark my words, these will sell like hot cakes. You can’t beat Playmobil when it comes to Advent toy calendars. I should know – I’m an editor and my office is currently full of every kind of advent calendar you could imagine and these are the ones my youngest is most desperate to play with,

Yes, children love Playmobil advent calendars. And parents love them for giving us five extra minutes of peace on cold December mornings! But they also offer excellent value for money. Expensive, yes, but Playmobil pieces last for years (literally) and can be added to existing playsets to create fun that extends well beyond December.

Listed with a recommended retail price of £29.99, Amazon has dropped the price of the Playmobil Christmas Ball Advent Calendar to £17.16 for Prime Day. We’ve verified it’s a bargain and can confirm it’s still £19.99 if you buy direct from Playmobil.

Get it while it’s hot!

Amazon Prime Day Lightning Deal: Julia Donaldson Toniebox Pack

I’ll be brief: my nine-year-old daughter has a Toniebox and it’s literally one of the few things she owns that I would run into a burning building to save her. Ok, I wouldn’t do that, but I could momentarily pause and think about it. Seriously, this gadget is so good.

If I were you, I’d skip straight to the Amazon Prime Day sale and buy one while this Prime Day Lightning Deal is live. When they left, they left!

But if you need a little more info, it’s basically a screenless audio player for kids and it’s so complicated to use that even toddlers can handle it. (Good news for those of us with tech challenges!)

We use ours for bedtime stories – there’s a huge range of Tonies audio characters available to buy separately and you simply place one on top and the play begins.

It’s padded and portable so you can take it overnight or even pack it when you go on vacation and the battery lasts for hours before you need to recharge it.

The Tonie Bundle includes 1 x Toniebox Speaker, 1 x Creative-Tonie with 60 minutes of preloaded content and 3 classic Julia Donaldson Tonies: The Gruffalo, Zog and The Highway Rat.

Bargain. Go!

Thunderbolt alert!

If you want to know how to get the best deals on Amazon Prime Day (opens in a new tab) one of the tricks you need up your sleeve is some know-how about Lightning Deals.

Our Editor-in-Chief Sarah Handley (opens in a new tab) explains why they are worth watching:

“But you’ll have to be quick – some flash deals will only last around 30 minutes or until the item is sold out. But a bargain is only a bargain if you’re only going to buy it in the first place, so be careful not to get carried away with rush or limited-availability deals and spend more than you intended.

On that note, we just found a capper from a Lightning Deal for kids – wait…that’s coming next!

Next up: Deals on Prime Day Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition tablets.

*Calling all parents*

Make Christmas 2022 THE children’s Christmas with the all-new Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet. Plus, you can save big, as we found plenty in the Amazon Prime Day sale, and an even better one at street favorite Currys – we’re looking high and low for those savings.

The all-new Fire 7 Kids Edition 2022 tablet features a 7-inch display with 16GB of storage and up to 10 hours of battery life. This latest version of Amazon’s Fire tablet has a faster processor than the previous iteration and you get a year of Amazon Kids+, which means more games, apps, books and videos than kids will know what to do with!

I’ve lost count of how many Fire Kids tablets we’ve owned over the years, but as a mother of three and editor at Goodto, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to parents. The built-in parental controls are my favorite feature – they’re so easy to set up and adjust that you can filter what your child can access and even when they can turn on the tablet. It also comes with a 2 year warranty.

Speaking of tarts, are we talking about Christmas trees?

Amazon Prime daily deals on Christmas trees and decorations are a great way to refresh your festive decor without spending a lot. For starters, there’s £30 off this artificial Christmas tree for Prime Day.

Good morning! Welcome to the afternoon team on our Amazon Prime Day live blog. We’re here throughout Prime Day (Tuesday October 11 and Wednesday October 12, 2022) to track all the best deals to help you spread the cost of Christmas and save ahead of the festive season. I am Heidi Scrimgeour (opens in a new tab)Consumer Editor here at Goodto and wondering if it’s too early to crave chopped pies…?

Amazon Prime Day is perfectly timed if you want to spread the cost of Christmas and shop for gifts for the ones you love while deals fly. But what do you buy the woman who has everything? Perfume, of course. And our eagle-eyed editor Emily Stedman (opens in a new tab) just noticed that Eternity for Women by Calvin Klein is HALF OFF today for Amazon Prime Day.

Can we talk about advent calendars? I know it’s October, but we all want to spread the cost of Christmas this year, and that means buying them early.

I’m not going to give my age here but let’s just say that advent calendars aren’t what they were when I was a kid. Forget fancy chocolate advent calendars (opens in a new tab) and chocolate-free advent calendars (opens in a new tab) full of everything from jame to makeup – we counted ourselves lucky if we had a flimsy little paper calendar with a cute picture of a robin to gaze upon with glee each December morning.

Nowadays. of course, you get advent calendars filled with every treat imaginable. But toy advent calendars (opens in a new tab) are really where it is for children. And yet they are often very expensive – especially if you have more than one child to buy – and the content doesn’t *always* live up to expectations.

So I’m a big fan of the book advent calendar. (For the kids, I mean. I’m going to pick one of the best Advent calendars for food and drink (opens in a new tab)please, if you ask…) There’s something especially nice about taking time each day in December to snuggle up with your child and enjoy a festive story together.

So I’m definitely skipping the Mr Men Little Miss Advent Calendar: Storybook Collection (opens in a new tab) in my cart this Prime Day. With a recommended retail price of £19.99, you can pick it up for £9.97 today, but be quick, it’s an Amazon bestseller and when units sell out, the deal will end.

Did someone say Amazon Prime Day Barbie deals?

When it comes to Barbie dolls and accessories, you’d be crazy to pay top dollar for these – Amazon always discounts the Dreamhouse barbie during Prime Day and today is no different. Hooray!

These are the Barbie items that go into our cart today…

If there’s one thing we’re particularly excited about today’s Amazon Prime Day sale, it’s the toy deals.

At this point in the year, all the major toy retailers have announced their roundups of the best Christmas toys, and most young people have a good idea of ​​what they’d like to find under the Christmas tree. But toys don’t come cheap, and the prospect of buying expensive playthings gives many parents a cold sweat. With Amazon slashing the price of a whole host of toys this Prime Day, including Lego, Playmobil, Barbie and LOL Dolls, it’s possible to check off some things on your kids’ Christmas wishlists without breaking the bank.

So without further ado, here are some of the best Amazon Lego deals we’ve found in the Prime Day sale so far this morning…


Remember that supermarkets and other toy retailers often match Amazon prices on Prime Day – so shop around before you buy to check you’re getting a real bargain. We will check prices elsewhere and also look for offers that match the prices.
