Prime Day is the Best Time for College Shopping

If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, SheKnows may receive an affiliate commission.

If your kid is heading off to college in the fall (they grow up so fast!), you’ve probably got a list as long as your arm of dorm essentials that you need to buy. And if you thought buying 100 pre-sharpened pencils and a stack of notebooks and binders every single year was expensive, just wait until you’re trying to outfit a dorm with everything your nearly-adult child will require.

Luckily, it’s Amazon Prime Day — and if there’s a perfect time to check those supplies off your list, it’s right now, while everything is on major sale. (Not an Amazon Prime member yet? Sign up HERE to take advantage of the fabulous deals — but hurry, because today is the last Prime Day of the year!)

We’ve scouted out the best Amazon Prime Day deals on dorm essentials. We’re not talking about things your kid may or may not use (and you may or may not pull a muscle carrying up stairs on move-in day); we’ve found the products your college student will use and love, things that will make dorm living as simple and comfy as possible. We can’t guarantee the quality of their roommate, but we can bet that these Prime Day bargains will improve their quality of college life. And at prices like this, you’ll probably want to snag a few duplicates for yourself, too!

Keurig K- Slim Single Serve K-Cup

Everybody knows that caffeine is practically a food group for college students — all those late nights studying, right?! — and the Keurig K-Slim
is perfect for dorm rooms. It’s less than 5″ wide, so it’ll sit on top of a desk or dresser without being in the way. Best of all? It’s over 50% off right now for Prime Day!

Wireless Charging Station

At just $20 (that’s almost 60% off the regular price!), this Prime Day deal is a steal. This wireless charging station
can quickly charge 4 devices at once: iPhone, AirPods, Apple Watch, and Apple Pencil (it will also support the Samsung S20 models). Intelligent short-circuit protection, over-current and over-voltage protection, and high-temperature protection mean that nobody will be burning down the dorm room thanks to a faulty charger.

Apple AirPods Pro Wireless Earbuds

Sales on Apple products are practically unheard of, but for Prime Day, these babies are a whopping 32% off! With almost 85K near-perfect ratings, the Apple AirPods Pro
feature active noise cancellation to help your student study in peace (but also a transparency mode, for when they need to interact with the outside world). They’re sweat and water resistant, so they’re great for the dorm or the gym.

We’re fairly certain that no college student has ever raved about how awesomely comfortable their dorm bed is. But a good night’s sleep is important (especially when you only get a few hours), so this 3″ gel-infused memory foam mattress topper
will help turn an uncomfortable dorm mattress into a bed worthy of a snoozefest.
