It’s the first day of October y’all, which means Prime Day is right around the corner (October 13 and 14, to be exact). While we may have to wait a couple weeks for Amazon’s biggest sale of the year to arrive, there’s still plenty of superb deals to be taken advantage of right now at the online giant.
In between a top-of-the-line Bluetooth speaker to level up your jam sessions and a best-selling Dash griddle to transform your breakfast routine, we’ve found plenty of markdowns worth checking out. Keep scrolling to find the best deals we found on Amazon this Thursday.
1. Save $30: The best portable speaker we’ve tested
Whether you’re hosting a backyard hangout around the fire pit or going for a long hike this fall, you may want to have your favorite tunes playing in the background. To do so, you’ll need a Bluetooth speaker that’s durable, easy to carry, and has powerful sound, all of which the JBL Flip 5 offers. It’s our favorite portable speaker, as we found it offered the best all-around performance with a waterproof exterior, excellent 12-hour battery life, and incredible, room-filling audio. This model comes in a massive range of colors too, from camo to teal, and is compatible with USB-C quick charge. While it normally retails for $119.95, right now it’s 25% cheaper than usual and going for just $89.95.

3. Save $8.50: These handy, space-saving colanders
Colanders are a total workhorse in the kitchen, whether you’re straining boiling pasta water through them or they’re catching the fruits and veggies you need rinsed. When we put them to the test, we found that while most require two hands—which isn’t ideal while cooking—the Joseph Joseph colander ($26.99) needs only one, which we liked. This similar Joseph Joseph set, once $15.99 and on sale for $9.99, is now $2.50 cheaper thanks to the on-page coupon below the price listing. That’s a total savings of $8.50, meaning you can this stackable set for just $7.49. Thoughtfully designed with an easy-glide handle to fit ergonomically in your hand and three knobby feet to sit solidly in your sink without tipping, this nesting set is a total dream according to more than 800 reviewers. As one shopper writes, “I have several colanders, but these are my favorite: deep, comfortable to hold, space-saving design and sturdy—everything I could want in a colander.”

4. Extra $3 off coupon: One of our favorite laundry detergents
As a bargain shopper, I love a good opportunity to save on items I use everyday. Such is the case today, as Amazon customers can knock a few bucks off the price of Tide Original. Normally $11.99, by clicking the on-page coupon right below the price listing, you can nab it for $8.99 at checkout. We chose Tide as our “best value” pick in our roundup of laundry detergents, as we found it out-cleaned its competitors by as much as 14 percent. Although we did think it was a bit too harsh for sensitive skin types, shoppers can opt instead for Tide Free & Gentle, which was a top contender in our testing of the best laundry detergents for sensitive skin—and it’s also $3 cheaper with an on-page coupon! Just note these have an estimated shipping date of October 8.
