Hold onto your hats, folks: Amazon has this Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV — Fire TV Edition on sale for just $100 for Prime members only! This standout set delivers eye-popping colors and exceptional image quality — rare at this price. The audio, too, is top notch — and Alexa is included in the remote. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling through a grid of movie titles, you can simply say, 'Alexa, play One Night in Miami,' and she’ll take care of the rest.

"...very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV," says a happy Amazon shopper. "As far as clarity goes, I believe HD720p is plenty for this screen size. I’m a bit of a TV snob and the lower clarity is not noticeable in this size." If you're looking for a compact set for a bedroom or kitchen, you've found it right here.

Is your router not cutting it anymore? If it’s slow, laggy and doesn’t cover every room — especially if you live in a two-story house — it's time to let it go. Because now there’s a way to get a fast internet connection everywhere in your home without being forced to huddle in one room. Reader, meet the Amazon Eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi 6 router, a compact wireless router that gets the job done as seamlessly as possible, and at a price you won't believe. This early Prime Day deal makes it yours for just $83 — that's $46 off — for Prime members. That’s not just a low price — it's the all-time lowest price for this little guy.

The Eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi 6 router can cover up to 1,500 square feet with speeds up to 900 Mbps. Unlike a Wi-Fi extender, which sacrifices speed for coverage, this mesh router can handle both. Plus, one of these little guys can support all the devices in use in your home at the same time (up to 75 devices, which is way beyond what you'd ever need). No lag, hiccups or dropouts! And shoppers are just in love with it.

"This device is super easy to set up and lightning fast," raved a happy Amazon shopper. "I was able to stream two 4K movies and three HD movies on five devices at once with no lag. Set everything up in less than 10 minutes..."

Formerly $149, the Bobbito Massage Gun is on sale for just $49 with the on-page coupon for Prime members only. This handy tool lets you knead out tight spots and tough knots in neck, shoulders, back, legs, feet and more.

And no need to enlist the help of a friend — you can use it on yourself, easily and safely. It's designed with 20 levels of intensity, and comes with six attachments to help you tackle all sorts of problem areas. A handy carrying case keeps everything together. And some shoppers say using this massage gun is better than going to a chiropractor.

"Great massager! My back is now happy! I’ve had back pain for years.... Stretches, chiropractors, and massages only work for a short time, then the pain comes back shortly after," shared a shopper. "...This massager has been great.... It’s lightweight and holds a charge for a long time..." And at this Prime-only price? It's an absolute steal.

Tea time just got easier. With the press of a button, you can have your brew turn out exactly as you like it.

Handy presets for different types of tea — black, herbal, oolong, white and green, ensure a perfect cup every time. And this compact appliance is easy on the eyes, too. 

Shoppers say it can compete with the big boys: "I absolutely love this machine," raved a five-star reviewer. "[It is] hands-down better than the more expensive Breville. The kettle is lighter-weight, the handle is easier to hold and more comfortable, it has all the same features (keep warm for 60 minutes, customize steep time, etc.), the filter basket is much larger, allowing the leaves more room to steep...."

Need a new gaming controller for the Nintendo Switch? This deal's for you. The Kutime Wireless Gaming Controller is on sale for $19, down from $40, for Amazon Prime members only. That's more than half off, people.

Extremely comfortable, this controller features a faux leather grip and delivers up to 10 hours of battery life. Its buttons are completely re-mappable to best suit your gaming experience.

And of course, it's Bluetooth-enabled, so you can pair it with just about any laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet for PC and mobile gaming. 

Amazon shoppers love that it comes with an impressive ‘rumble’ feature too: "If you want a good controller and don’t want to pay for the Nintendo Switch Pro controller, this is a really nice one," raved a delighted gamer. "I opted to buy this over the PowerA controllers because the PowerA ones don’t have rumble. The rumble on this controller is great. It also has a good weight to it, so it feels sturdy. The battery seems to last several days of playing, and it’s rechargeable using an included USB-C cable...."
