Amazon’s Prime Day has arrived and with it an entire world of epic deals just waiting to be snatched up. But with thousands of products to choose from and only so much time before each deal runs out, it can be difficult to track down the best hits. Never fear: The Points Guy has scoured Amazon’s Prime Day deals to find the unbeatable items that might be worth a look, particularly for travelers on the hunt for new gear. Plus, JetBlue TrueBlue members can earn as much as 6x points on Prime Day purchases.

1. Samsonite Spinner

Amazon lists this among the top deals of the day and we have to agree. At 66% off, these Samsonite spinner hardside bags are the definition of a steal. You’ll save $184 off the full price — more than enough to book a flight to somewhere fun. This deal is live.

2. FlyHawk RFID Blocking Wallet

Credit cards are your gateway to the sky, so it might be worth it investing in some extra gear to keep them safe. This Italian leather wallet will do just that, with built-in RFID-blocking technology to stop would-be hackers from accessing your cards. This deal starts: 7:35pm.FLYHAWK RFID BLOCKING WALLET
