Prime Day 2023: the best Amazon automotive deals this week

We're finding the best Amazon automotive deals for Prime Day 2023 so you don't have to.

Prime Day 2023 is here, which is always a fun excuse to stuff the trunk of your car, truck, or SUV with all the Amazon automotive essentials you’ve put off buying long enough.

What is Prime Day and when do the deals start?

So what is Prime Day? Well, a few years ago, Amazon recognized that the summer months between Memorial Day and Labor Day were a baron wasteland for sales opportunities. As any smart company would do, Amazon decided to invent its own holiday – thus Prime Day was born.

This year, Prime Day (which is always more than one day) falls on July 11 and July 12. Shoppers can find opportunities to save across TVs, smartphones, home goods, and yes, even automotive products. Stay tuned on this page as we update it with all of the best Amazon automotive accessory deals.

In the days leading up to the event, watch this space for ongoing sales where you can still save a ton, and be sure to bookmark Deals on Wheels for the best daily car deals online, all year round.

Car care & tools

VanTrue N2 dash cam | 41% off

Returning to your car with a dent in your bumper because some moron tried to fit their Suburban-sized SUV in a Miata-sized parking spot is downright infuriating. But without knowing who did it, there’s not much you can do about it besides suck it up and file an insurance claim or ignore it and move on.

With a dash cam, however, you could review the footage and report the license plate so they’re held liable for the damage. There you go, a dash cam pays for itself after one incident, and the VanTrue N2 is one of the best-reviewed models you’ll find. Just make sure you account for cable management. I use these clips to keep wires out of my way when I’m cruising around in the Alfa Romeo.

Craftsman Air Compressor | 30% off

This Craftsman kit includes a PVC air hose with the coupler and plug assembled. In the box, you’ll find a chuck with a plug, a blow gun with a plug, and a tire gauge as well as a blow gun with an OSHA safety nozzle, rubber tip, and three inflator adaptors.
