If you’re in the mood to upgrade your bedroom, you’ll find everything you need to design a space that looks and feels like a million bucks (but certainly doesn’t cost it) during this second Prime Day.
This Levoit air purifier has a three stage filtration system and is capable of filtering the air in rooms up to 178 square feet.
For something with a little more power, try the Levoit 400S, which can clean a room over just over 400 square feet and cured social media manager Rebecca Grambone’s puffy morning eyes.

Best Amazon Prime Day Deals: Smart Home & Security
Join the 21st century this Prime Day with some top of the line home tech. Several of our perennial favorites, like the wi-fi enabled August Smart Lock, are marked down for the big day—no coupon required. We also highly recommend checking out the Prime Day TV deals if you’re making big ticket purchases in that category (Samsung Frames are a popular choice amongst Clever home tour subjects), or for any laptops or streaming devices.
We love a good smart home device. This smart lock from August makes it way easier to secure your home–and to share access with friends and family–without keys. It works with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit for seamless connection.
A smart TV with Alexa built in for under $1,000? That doesn’t happen every day. You’ll be captivated by lifelike color and 3D audio all in one.

Best Amazon Prime Day deals: Vacuums
Vacuuming doesn’t have to suck (metaphorically, that is). We’re excited to see that more than a few reliable cleaners we’ve tested—like contributor Terri Williams’ favorite Shark robot vacuum designed for hardwood floors and the iRobot Roomba 692 that was one of the most purchased products by Clever readers last year—are on sale during the 2022 Prime Day bonanza. If you’re casually in the market for a vacuum, keep scrolling! We can pretty much guarantee that there’s a vacuum for every household on sale somewhere across the internet right now.
This Roomba has all the fixings of a perfect robot vacuum at a fraction of the price–and more than 22,000 Amazon customers agree. The best part? It gets better every time it does its job with advanced mapping technology.
Calling all minimalists: feast your eyes on this crisp white and stainless steel vacuum. The Dreametech T10 boasts Dyson-style cordless technology and a detachable battery, plus powerful suction, a long runtime, and an incredibly sleek design.
If you prefer an upright model with an extra boost of power, try this Shark specimen, which is bagless and formulated for pet hair.
What’s not to love about a self-emptying vacuum? This very special Roomba claims to be so intelligent that it can not only detect pet waste, but also avoid it–and thus any messes that come with it.
This cool, sleek Shark has more than 12,000 positive reviews to back it up. Control it with your phone (you can even schedule cleanings while you’re not around) and watch it do its thing for 120 minutes on a single charge.
Is there anything more handy than powerful little dustbuster? Pick up small spills, keep your car clean, or trail that messy family member as they leave crumbs around the house. And it’s priced under $40!
When is Amazon Prime Day?
Technically, the two-day sales extravaganza started very early this morning at 12 a.m. PST and will run through 11:59 p.m. PST on Wednesday, October 12.
How does Prime Day work?
A Prime membership is required to take advantage of the deals. Luckily, it doesn’t take much to become an Amazon Prime member. They offer a free 30-day trial for newbies, and after that it’s $14.99 per month to take advantage of their blazing fast shipping, Prime Video, and all the other benefits the mega retailer offers. And a note for book on tape nerds, an Audible membership is sold separately.
Now, on to the deals. Some last the full 48 hours, others are what they call “lightning deals” and don’t last more than a few hours.
