Prime Day 2022 wraps up later today, and we’re already seen deep discounts on products we regularly buy and recommend at full price. Many of the best deals are under $50 and every deal in this post is a stellar one. But just for fun, we went ahead and ranked the deals based on the rarity of the discount and the utility of the product. Read on for our rankings.

The best Prime Day deals under $50, ranked

20. amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo SwitchSwitch with a glass protector on it


Coming in on the lowest ranking of under $50 deals that are still great is this glass screen protector that every Nintendo Switch owner should have. It’ll help keep your screen from getting scratched or damaged beyond repair. While this is a great price on a gaming staple, it’s not applicable to everyone and the overall savings are much lower compared to other deals in this list.

19. Frida Mom Adjustable Nursing PillowFridababy nursing pillow


This is the lowest price we’ve seen on a pillow we love for breastfeeding; in fact, we almost never see discounts on this nursing pillow. You can add or remove layers to find the right height from lap to latch — adjusting as they grow up. The deal is obviously not applicable to everyone, so it earns a respectable but lower spot in our rankings.

18. Amazon Kindle Unlimited SubscriptionThe Amazon Kindle e-reader leaning on a plant displaying a book’s pages in the middle of reading

This $4.99 for four months deal on Kindle Unlimited is well worth it if you enjoy reading new titles on your Kindle, since you’ll gain access to over 2 million titles. That said, Kindle Unlimited is primarily a boon for genre readers; you won’t find a ton of trendy best sellers on the app, making this a respectable, but lower-ranked deal on our list.

17. Luna ControllerLuna video game controller


Not everyone plays video games, and not all gamers use Luna, Amazon’s cloud gaming service. But for those that do, this is a steal of a deal on a wireless controller. It’s at its lowest price ever, earning it a lower-tier spot in our ranking. 

16. Roku 4KRoku Streaming Stick 4K 2021


Roku lets you bring streaming capabilities to your TV. While this is a great discount, it’s one we see matched around the holidays, making this a solid deal for the lower rungs of this ranking.

15. Battlefield 2042 for PlayStation 5Battlefield 2042 - PlayStation 5 screenshot


Taking place in the year 2042, Battlefield 2042 is a futuristic first-person shooter. With an in-depth story mode and incredibly fun online multi-player, it’s well worth the $20 price on sale. Since we don’t normally see deep discounts on Playstation 5 games, this earns an easy place in the middle of our rankings.

14. Laneige Lip Sleeping MaskA pink container of the Laneige Lip Mask


Skincare: so hot right now. Our readers are loving this 30% discount on Laneige’s ultraluxe lip mask. We think this one has broad appeal, so it’s going in the middle of our rankings.

13. Lodge Cast Iron Skilletchocolate chip cookie baked in a cast iron skillet topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce


You can make warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies in almost any decent baking dish, but a cast iron skillet is a way for you to take your cookies to the next level. We’ve seen the price dip a bit lower on this Lodge skillet, but you’re still saving 33% on an already affordable pan. A solid contender for middle rankings on this list.

12. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WildLegend of Zelda Breath of the Wild


Breath of the Wild isn’t just one of the best Zelda games, it’s one of the best games in years, period. This game’s price usually stays the same, still retailing for $60 years after release, but right now it’s down to $40, giving it a key spot in our ratings.

11. Braun immersion blenderbraun multiquick best immersion blender 2021


This little handheld tool can blend almost as well as the most powerful full-sized blenders, plus it cleans up much, much faster. We almost never see it deviate from its standard price so this is a rare (and deep) discount, earning it a solid middle ground on this list. 

10. Amazon Fire TV Stickfire tv stick 4k


Breaking into our top 10 is the Amazon Fire TV Stick, one of the most affordable ways to turn any TV into a smart TV. This particular model supports 4K Ultra HD streaming. It’s currently $25, an awesome discount of this popular device.

9. Crest 3D Whitestripscrest 3d professional whitestrips professional whitening kit


We’re all getting back into the swing of social events post-pandemic, and I don’t know about you, but my oral care was less than stellar during lockdown. $30 is a solid discount for teeth whitening strips, and a popular deal with our readers. A solid middle slot, for sure.

8. Amazon Halo Bandamazon halo band hero colors in onyx, pink, and black in front of a pink background


If you don’t need a smartwatch or can’t afford one, the Halo Band is an affordable alternative that can be used to monitor steps, heart rate, sleep time, and sleep tracking. Prime Day savings are bringing it to an all-time low, making this an awesome deal with a well-deserved middle spot on this list.

7. Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizerall-in-one revlon hair dryer - gifts for teen girls


A darling of the internet, the Revlon One Step is a game changer for those with a lot of hair to take care of — it lets you dry, style, and add volume to your hair in, well, one step. We often see it dip to this price on big deal days, but it remains a great discount to take advantage of. It earns a middle spot on this list because we expect to see the discount come back around during the holidays.

6. Vital Proteins Collagen Peptidevital proteins collagen peptides

Vital Proteins

We could all use a little more protein in our life, right? During Prime Day, may of Vital Proteins’ supplements are on sale for 35% to 45% off — prices we don’t see often. A rarely-discounted brand + tasty product + and huge deal places this one high up in our ratings.

5. Echo Show 5amazon echo show 5 2nd generation on a desk with pens and a lamp displaying a podcast


Seems only fitting that the #5 spot goes to the Echo Show 5, one of Amazon’s most exciting devices that lets you watch videos and call loved ones. Getting this all-in-one smart hub for under $50 is a stellar deal, which is why it graces the top of our list.

4. Amazon KindleA person turning a page of an ebook on the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite ereader.

Amazon’s Kindles have been on mega discount during Prime Day, and its most basic model (called simply “Kindle”) comes in just under $50 with the discount. This is currently the lowest price we’ve seen on this Kindle, and a must-buy if you’re e-reader curious. 

3. AquaSonic Black Series Ultra Whitening ToothbrushesPrime Day 2022 beauty deals: The AquaSonic Black Series Ultra Whitening Toothbrushes from Amazon.


Oral care: so important, such broad appeal. Everyone should brush their teeth. This toothbrush packs a powerful 40,000 vibrations per minute, and is highly capable of getting your teeth clean. It also comes bundled with eight replacement heads. An awesome, high-ranking deal anyone can take advantage of.

2. Bounty Quick Size Paper Towels (4 Pack)Bounty Quick Size Paper Towels (4 Pack).


A staple of most households, paper towel deals are incredibly popular with our readers. Many of you picked up this deal for Bounty Quick-Size Paper Towels, which often cost around $23. This deal is a great combination of a stellar product, solid discount, and wide appeal, earning it a top spot in this list.

1. Casper Sleep Essential Standard PillowCasper pillow


We’re fans of Casper’s pillows; we ranked the Original as the best pillow for side sleepers in our buying guide to the best pillows you can buy and we’ve never seen a deal this steep on it. Not to mention, it’s been one of the most popular deals with readers this Prime Day. For those reasons (and the fact that everyone sleeps, and thus, needs a pillow), this is our number one deal under $50 for Prime Day.
