There are always deals to be found at Amazon — and we’re pros at spotting the ones actually worth your money. You’d be surprised how many discounts look good on paper, but actually are too good to be true. Lucky for you, we’ve sorted through pages of deals and handpicked a few gems.

Between Mother’s Day sales and Amazon’s Pet Day discounts, there are some great options for you to shop on May 8. Here are the best Amazon deals of the day.

Our top pick

At a loss for what to get mom for Mother’s Day? A digital picture frame serves as a modern and convenient way to display her favorite memories and show off all of her favorite people and adventures. The Skylight 10-inch frame is a solid budget pick that lets you load it up with pictures by connecting to a WiFi network. It offers something a lot of other digital frames don’t have: local storage and touch-based controls, so it’s ideal for moms who aren’t always connected. The downside? Its screen isn’t as pristine as more expensive options might be.

It’s on sale for just $119.99 for Mother’s Day at Amazon — that’s 29% off its usual price and matches its all-time low price from Black Friday season.

Traveling this summer? You’re going to want some noise-canceling headphones. As Mashable’s Alex Perry noted in his review, “It’s hard to find a pair of over-ear headphones with a better all-around experience than Beats Studio Pro.” The sound is top-notch, the battery life is highly impressive (24 hours with ANC turned on; up to 40 without), and they work equally as well for iOS and Android users. The only thing that’s not so great is their price (reg. $349.99). Fortunately, after the release of the Beats Solo 4, older-generation Beats headphones are seeing big discounts. As of May 8, you can snag the Beats Studio Pros for only $179.95 — that’s 49% in savings and just $10 shy of their all-time low.

Thanks to Amazon’s Pet Day deals, you can snag the Tractive GPS tracker for dogs on sale for just $29.99. That’s 40% off its usual price and matches its all-time low price. A solid pet tracker on a budget, the Tractive GPS collar packs a bundle of features like a waterproof design, fast and accurate notifications, robust customization (including virtual fences) via the companion app, in-depth activity monitoring, and a built-in light.

“Although the lackluster battery life can be a pain to stay on top of, the tracker features enough bells and whistles to make it worth its low price compared to more expensive options,” Mashable Lead Shopping Reporter Dylan Haas concluded in his review.

Great for pet owners, frequent travelers, or any homeowner looking to keep an eye on their abode, the Blink Outdoor 4 is one of our top overall picks for a security camera. The Amazon-owned security camera works seamlessly with other Alexa-enabled devices, comes with customizable motion zones without the need for a subscription (although, a Blink subscription will unlock even more features), and has a battery life that’s hard to beat. Once you pop in the AAs you won’t have to worry about changing them for two years. This five-camera system lets you outfit your home’s entire perimeter for only $199.99 as of May 8 — that’s 50% in savings and matches this particular bundle’s all-time low price.
