This story is part of , CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.
What do Americans love more than buying stuff? That’s right, deep-fried foods… I mean, saving money while buying stuff. And there’s no better time than right now to enjoy a boatload of savings on some exceptionally good and eminently useful products.
Yep, Amazon Prime Day is upon us again. Like Thanksgiving or the Fourth of July, this event should basically be a national holiday, an opportunity for all to love, laugh and, of course, spend. If you’re looking for some great deals on tools and garage accessories, you’ve come to the right place. Below, you’ll find a carefully curated list of car-related products that are being offered at steep discounts. Per usual, these deals don’t last long, so if you’ve got your eye on something — maybe even both eyes — make sure to snatch it up before you miss the proverbial boat.
We’re starting with one deal, but this post will continually be updated throughout the day so check back early and often for more great deals!
Extension cords aren’t necessarily a requirement for getting things done, but they sure are nice so you don’t have to work 3 feet away from a wall outlet. This flexibility can be a godsend, even if extension cords can also be a bit of a hassle, with their penchant for getting tangled. But it doesn’t have to be this way. For added convenience and freedom from dealing with a rat’s nest of knots, get the Giraffe Tools extension cord reel. This nifty tool is available at a 57% discount this Prime Day, for just $64. It has a handy 180-degree swivel bracket, an adjustable cord stopper, 50 feet of commercial-grade cabling for long-term durability and a grounded, three-prong end. Act now before this deal disappears like last week.
Tools and more for your home and garage
If you’re mechanically inclined or want to learn how to do more of your own repair work and maintenance, tools are critically important. Fortunately, the items we’ll be highlighting on this list are all affordably priced and superversatile. They’re things that are within reach of nearly everyone, but again, when we put deals here act fast, before these deals disappear.
