The best Prime Day deals that are $5 or less

Whether you don’t really need anything or cash is tight right now, I totally get the urge to sit Prime Day out this year. But where’s the fun in that? Amazon sales are incredibly rare, and this year’s Prime Day discounts are epic. Everyone should get in on the fun, even if it means you just buy something cheap and small for fun.

Obviously, there are lots of discounts on big-ticket items like vacuums, Amazon devices and laptops, but there are plenty of budget-friendly deals, too. If you don’t want to feel left out of the thrill of shopping Amazon Prime Day, but don’t actually have a lot of money to blow, check out the five Prime Day deals under $5 below. They’re not just inexpensive, they’re actually very practical and legit good deals you shouldn’t miss out on.
