Remember when Black Friday and Cyber Monday used to sit relatively alone atop the mountain of sales frenzy days? These days, Amazon Prime Day has joined in with more than 80,000 deals, including some items more than 70 percent off the usual price. But don’t sweat it: We’ve scoured the list of items on sale to find items that would appeal to those who enjoy to spend their days and nights outdoors – be it on a pool deck or camping in the woods.
For 2020, Prime Day is actually two days – Oct. 13 and 14. All you need to do to take advantage of the sale is to sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime (if you’re not a member already). Sales are also subject to availability, so don’t wait until the last minute to click the “buy” button. Most deals are also only on sale for a short window of time, so keep that in mind as you shop.
Here are the best Amazon Prime days we found for the pool deck, your lawn, your patio, your next camping trip and more.
NOMA Solar Post Lights
We love all the uses for these solar lights – put them anywhere outdoors to create a warm, comforting glow. The 8-pack of white LED lights is operated by a rechargeable battery that is weather resistant. An advanced solar panel can provide light for more than eight hours.
Outdoor String Lights with Edison Vintage Bulbs
We’ve long been a fan of outdoor lights to add a touch of class to the backyard. The antique look of these lights from Addlon makes them irresistible. They’re insulated so they’re safe for long-term use in the sun, wind and rain. They also can link up to five more strands if you’re outfitting a large space. (Check out more light recommendations.)
Shade & Beyond Sail for Patio
Sun sails don’t get enough credit for all they can provide patio and pool fans. Their design allows a breeze to pass through your patio while still protecting you from the sun. This particular model is not waterproof – rain will pass right through it – but that also prevents water from pooling and damaging the sail. (Here are some outdoor furniture pieces we also love.)
Master Cook 3 Burner BBQ Propane Gas Grill
Grilling season down in the south is practically year-round, so we’re eyeing this number from Master Cook with visions of burgers and ribs dancing in our heads. It has three stainless steel burners, two foldable shelves and a built-in thermometer in the lid. (Also, check out these unique outdoor grills.)
Bali Outdoors Wood Burning Fire Pit
This fire pit from Bali Outdoors can be swiveled 360 degrees, a feature that comes in handy if you’re using it as a grill. A collapsible triangle frame rack will hold the logs in the ideal configuration for optimal ventilation. A poker and log rack are included with the fire pit. (Here are more recommended fire pits.)
Rockpals 250-Watt Portable Generator
Charge this generator in just eight hours using a standard wall outlet or use the solar generator (not included) to do the job. It has two AC outlets, two USB ports and four DC ports. It will quickly power anything from a CPAP machine to a mini refrigerator. (Here are more recommended generators.)
Army Pans Military Backpack
This backpack from Army Pans is full of compartments and pockets for any of your gear – be it for travel, camping or any other outdoor use. Four main loading spaces can accommodate clothing and bulkier items. An adjustable belt and additional straps help distribute the weight comfortably. It’s water resistant and just aching for adventure. (More of our favorite backpacks.)
Bear Butt Double Parachute Hammock
Don’t head out for a day at the beach or in the woods without this durable double hammock. It’s incredibly lightweight at only 1.6 pounds. Built with enhanced nylon, it offers exceptional breathability. An attached sack is handy for storing your photo, water bottles and keys. (Check out these other recommended hammocks.)
Schwinn Vantage FXe 650b Electric Sport Hybrid Road Bike
An alloy frame with a mustache-style handle bar allows the rider to sit upright comfortably during any adventure. But the 250-watt motor is the real attraction here, providing up to 20 miles per hour of assistance. The battery – which lasts up to 50 hours – can be recharged with any standard wall outlet. (Our picks for best bikes for leisurely rides.)
Pelican Maxim 100X Sit-in Recreational Kayak
Stability and maneuverability are two qualities that you should focus on when shopping for a kayak. This number from Pelican offers both thanks to its Shallow V Chine hull design. This particular kayak is aimed at the average paddler and is built of impact-resistant material. It can hold up to 275 pounds and includes a padded cushion, cockpit table, bottle holder and drain plug. (More recommended kayaks.)
