Amazon Prime Day isn't just a great time to grab a great deal on a Garmin watch or a new two-man tent, it's also an opportunity to bulk-buy essentials at a big discount. They might not be glamorous or exciting, but allergy tablets, tissues, and energy gels are the type of products that get a big price cut during Amazon's annual sales event, and the savings really add up when you think about how much you'd pay if you bought them elsewhere only when you need them.
These are the cheap deals I'm stocking up on for Amazon Prime Day. They might not be as exciting as a new GPS watch or pair of hiking boots, but provided I can find enough storage space at home, I'll be glad I did.
UK bulk-buy deals
Cheeky Panda bamboo tissues (96 packs):
£24.99 £17.49 at Amazon
Save £7.50 You know how it is when you're hiking and hayfever strikes, or it's a cold day and your nose decides to start running. Right now, you can get almost 100 packs of hypoallergenic bamboo tissues for under £20, which is cheaper than they've ever been before. You'll never be caught short and snotty again.
US bulk-buy deals
I'm in the UK, but if you're in the US there are some nearly identical deals so you can stock up on the essentials as well.
Nuun Sport Electrolyte Tablets:
$44.94 $23.77 at Amazon
Save $21.17 I'm a big fan of Nuun electrolyte tabs (they taste a lot better than most), and if you live in the US you can stock up for 47% less than the usual asking price. This deal gives you six flavors, with 10 tablets in each tube (the tropical one is particularly good).
Compeed blister plasters:
$20.61 $18.81 at Amazon
Save $1.77 There are larger packs of unbranded blister plasters available more cheaply, but reviews are mixed and some people question the quality of the glue. I can vouch for Compeed, and this deal works out similar to the UK one in terms of price per plaster. You're getting 18 of them here.
