Furbo Pet Camera, $133.99 (Orig. $249.00)

As the world comes out of quarantine, my exceptionally needy pug is going to be seeing a lot less of me. Hopefully, Furbo will ease Smokey’s anxiety as I get back into my normal routine. — Maia McCann, Director of Programming & Pug Mom

AeroGarden White Harvest Indoor Hydroponic Garden, $89.95 (Orig. $149.95)

Credit: Morgan Greenwald

At the beginning of quarantine, everyone was making sourdough starters. I knew better than to even attempt such a bold feat, I decided to get an AeroGarden and grow some tiny lil’ grape tomatoes on my window sill. Seeing as I’ve killed many-a-succulent, I thought I’d kill these, too — but somehow, by some miracle, the AeroGarden is so easy to use that even I couldn’t kill the tomatoes. Months later, my plant is still growing tomatoes and I love her! If you’re not a tomato person, you can also grow herbs and other vegetables in your garden. The best part? You only have to water it every few days. It could not be easier for people born without green thumbs (like me). Morgan Greenwald, Trending Content Editor

Apple AirPods Pro, $199.00 (Orig. $249.00)

Credit: Amazon

This Prime Day, I am splurging on Apple Airpods Pro. I have completely worn through my first pair of AirPods that I got about three years ago, so it’s definitely time for an upgrade. The Pros have active noise cancellation and a more comfortable fit — and since they are $50 off today, I’m grabbing mine while they’re in stock. And seeing as they have over 60,000 ratings, I have a feeling these will go fast. — Julia Webb, Commerce Editor

Mario Badescu Facial Spray, Pack of 2, $9.80 (Orig. $14.00)

Credit: Amazon

I am obsessed with spritzing myself regularly throughout the day, and these are two of my favorites. It makes me feel like I am a beautiful goddess in a commercial, even though I’m just sitting on my basic Ikea chair in my tiny living room. I’ve also started spraying the inside of my masks because I am neurotic about maskne — glamorous! — Katie Mather, Trending Content Editor

LaCie Rugged Mini 4TB External Hard Drive, $104.99 (Orig. $149.99)

Credit: Amazon

As a photography lover, I’m constantly looking for the best ways to store my images. LaCie is one of the most well known external hard drive companies with excellent build quality and data storage options. 4TB at this price is hard to pass up! — Nicolas Rudzewick, Associate Video Editor

Lodge Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron Combo Cooker, 2-Piece Set, $39.99 (Orig. $62.00)

Credit: Amazon

My cast iron cookware collection is my pride and joy, and this two-in-one combo set is one I can’t wait to use. It’s perfect for small kitchen spaces and apartments, and boasts the reliability that comes with all things Lodge. — Moriba Cummings, Commerce Editor

Diamond Whetstone Knife Sharpener With Storage Base, $54.99 (Orig. $79.95)

All the knives in my kitchen are super dull, and I’ve been looking for a way to sharpen them forever. I’m a total knife-sharpening newbie, but I’ve heard great things about whetstones. The only thing is, angles are essential when using this method and I knew I would be overwhelmed. I love that this option comes with a guide to help you get the right angle — and the reviews are stellar. At 31 percent off, I have my fingers crossed that it’s what I’ve been needing! — Katie Dupere, Commerce Editor

All-New Insignia 43-Inch Smart 4K Fire TV Edition, $199.99 (Orig. $299.99)

Credit: Amazon

As a millennial, I’d resigned to the fact that there are two things I’d never own: a home and a television. One of those things will probably always be true, but this deal, for a 43-inch smart TV, is too good to pass up. — Dillon Thompson, Trending Content Editor

Michelangelo Rainbow 10-Piece Knife Set, $33.98 (Orig. $59.99)

I’m buying these gorgeous, stupid, 4.5-star-rated rainbow kitchen knives. Do I need ’em? No. But do I need them? Unequivocally yes. — Alex Lasker, Trending Content Editor

Syosin Professional Single Resistance Exercise Band, $12.99 (Orig. $15.99)

Credit: Amazon

I’ve been a #homeworkoutwarrior since the beginning of quarantine, and had a pair of resistance bands that I ripped in half. I thought today would be a great day to buy new ones! These look solid and would really add to my workouts. I’ve been really wanting to add resistance and weights back into my routine. — Max Rutcofsky, Social Media Manager

SGEYR HDMI 2.0 Switch Splitter With IR Remote Control, $19.99 (Orig. $26.99)

Credit: Amazon

This thing is great if you have multiple machines and/or consoles to plug into your TV. If you have limited HDMI ports, you don’t want to change the input on the TV or just make your setup look more organized, this helps. With the included remote, you can quickly switch between them with ease. — Antonio Dahl, Video Editor

Amazon Essentials Long-Sleeve Cross-Front Hoodie, $10.90 (Orig. $16.40)

Credit: Amazon

This Prime Day, I’ll definitely be buying this lightweight hoodie. For starters, it’s on sale for just $11 (a no-brainer if you ask me!). Not only is it perfect for working out during the colder months, but I know I’ll also find myself gravitating towards it during chilly summer nights. It comes in 10 different colors, and is the ideal pullover for heading to the gym to brunch. Plus, the thumb-holes are an added bonus. — Laura Galvan, Commerce Editor

Apple AirPods With Charging Case, $114.99 (Orig. $124.99)

I’ve always wanted AirPods, but could never justify buying them. $115 is a good price, and I’ll definitely use them. Also, I have around $100 in Amazon credit, so basically getting them for $15. Even better. — Justin O’Reilly, Associate Video Editor

Wolverine Claws Realistic Plastic Cosplay Costume Props, $19.99 (Orig. $39.99)

Credit: Amazon

Halloween is coming up and I want to be Wolverine. I bought myself some claws and they were on sale for 50 percent off! Yesterday, they were up for $40. Glad I waited! — Mark Chrysafis, Associate Video Editor

Audio-Technica Wireless Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones, $179.00 (Orig. $199.00)

Credit: Amazon

Audio-Technica is an A+++ brand that so many audiophiles like myself swear by. I just purchased their over-ear Bluetooth headphones to both use for gaming and editing. I’ve been super impressed with the warm quality of the sound. — Paul Lazo, Associate Video Editor
