Prime Day may officially be over, but there’s still plenty of money to be saved on the few great deals left kicking. Over the course of Amazon’s two-day deals extravaganza, the Wirecutter Deals team sorted through 47,112 (!!!) of the best deals and discounts—but found only 342 worth posting. Here are the best of the bunch that are still hanging around.
A powerful Dyson for less
Cordless stick vacuums are so convenient that they can actually make cleaning the house enjoyable—and if you’re going to go the cordless stick route, there’s no better pick than a Dyson. According to our reviews, any Dyson model can be a good buy for the right price. Now discounted to $180 when you use the code PASTE20, the Dyson V7 Allergy is a variant of our to pick, the V7 Motorhead. Other than the Allergy’s post-motor HEPA filter, the two models are almost identical in performance and come with the same amount of attachments. Though we don’t think HEPA filter does much, this is still a good chance to grab a powerful vacuum for less than $200.

An affordable Chromebook
A Chromebook is best for folks on a budget who need a lightweight web-browsing computer or a laptop for their kids to use for online schooling because it can do most of the things a laptop can do for a fraction of the price. The HP Chromebook x360 14c-ca0053dx is a more powerful version of our runner-up pick, the HP Chromebook x360 14c (ca0065nr)—and a bit pricier, too. This deal brings the price down to $500, though, which makes it only $100 more than our runner-up. With a Core i3 processor and 8 GB of memory, it’s a fast-working Chromebook that has a solid keyboard and trackpad, along with a vibrant 14-inch touchscreen. So if you’re looking for a Chromebook with more RAM but don’t want to shell out for the Pixelbook Go, this is a great step up from the normal version of our runner-up pick.

The best dry-food containers
Rubbermaid Brilliance Pantry Food Storage Containers (18-Piece Set)
Deal price: $23; street price: $27
As winter draws nearer, you’ve already started to brainstorm household projects to tackle once the weather turns frosty. If organizing your pantry tops the list, you’ll need a good set of dry-food containers to store your rice, cereal, pasta, and assorted snacks. Down to just $23 for a 18-piece set (nine containers, nine lids), the durable, airtight Rubbermaid Brilliance Pantry Food Storage Containers will keep your food from growing stale. With a tight seal that stays that way even after multiple runs in the dishwasher, these containers are also leak-proof, making them great to store leftovers in, too. To meet Walmart’s $35 free shipping minimum, you’ll have to add something else to your cart; otherwise, curbside pickup is a good option, if you don’t mind hopping in the car.

Plants for folks who normally kill plants
Shop Succulents Variety Pack of Mini Succulents (pack of 16)
Deal price: $25; street price: $36
If you’ve decided you want to become a plant person but seem to have more of a black thumb than a green one, succulents are a good place to start. Simple to care for and extremely difficult to kill, these hardy succulents need to be watered only every 10 to 14 days. This deal brings a pack of 16 desert plants down to $25, and though you can’t pick each individual plant, the pack includes a nice variety. And if ordering plants online makes you wary, a former Wirecutter senior editor says they came packaged carefully and arrived healthy.

A baby carrier for toddlers
For moms and dads on the go, a reliable baby carrier is crucial. The Ergobaby 360 Cool Air Mesh Baby Carrier is an affordable choice when you want to free up your hands while also reducing back pain. Though the Ergobaby 360 is a bit bulkier than our other picks, it works well for parents carrying larger toddlers. And the carrier also allows parents to face their child outward in a front carry so their youngster can see the world. Comfortable-to-wear and ergonomic, this carrier is now down to a new low of $98.

You’ve probably been watching a lot of TV lately. Investing in a streaming stick like the Roku (if you don’t already have one) is the best and easiest way to turn every television into a smart TV with instant access to any streaming platform. This is a great discount on the top pick in our guide to the best media streaming devices, and it matches the lowest price we’ve seen for the device this year. The Roku Streaming Stick+ offers 4K streaming, a wide selection of content, and an easy way to declutter your entertainment system, to boot. Though it’s available from both Walmart and Amazon, the Roku from Amazon won’t ship until October 24.

A cheap hair-styling tool
If the Dyson Airwrap tops your wish list but you can’t bring yourself to spend $550 on a hairstyling tool that isn’t made of solid gold, it’s worth checking out the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. A great choice for anyone who loves salon-style blowouts and has tried to re-create the results at home, the Revlon One-Step combines the power of a blow dryer and a round brush into one easy-to-use hot-air brush. The Revlon One-Step was beloved by our reviewers, who said it works just as well as the Airwrap for a tenth of the price. Now down to the lowest price we’ve seen this year—but just in black and with delayed shipping—the Revlon One-Step will give you the blowout results you’re looking for, without completely emptying your wallet.
