Amazon is a winner when it comes to convenience. You can search thousands of products, order the item in a couple of clicks with the “Buy Now” button and have it delivered in a couple of days (or sometimes less) if you’re an Amazon Prime member. And when you find a great deal at the online retailer on top of the convenience, it’s pretty much unbeatable.

Now that summer is here, even unofficially, it’s time to stock up on the items you need to help carry you through the season. From water toys to camping accessories, here are some of the top summer sales on Amazon. Prices are subject to change.

Pool Ride-On Toy

Sale Price: $17.49

You won’t fear this gator — an alligator-shaped inflatable the kids can ride on in the pool. Right now, it’s priced at 44% off. At 80 inches long and 45 inches wide, the gator is plenty large for one bigger kid or two smaller ones. (It’s recommended for ages 3 and up.) No matter the age, the kids will have plenty of fun riding the gator.

Flying Insect Trap

Sale Price: $145.37

This extra-large bug trap by DynaTrap offers up to one acre of protection from mosquitos, flies, wasps, gnats and other flying insects, and at around $145, it’s a great deal. Its normal Amazon price is $221 — a 34% savings.

The unit uses no pesticides or chemicals and requires a 110-volt outlet for operation. According to the product description, the unit will need to operate for three weeks to see an impact on mosquitoes and six weeks to break the insect’s breeding cycle.

Summer weather means more time on the golf course. Get ready for your round with the SKLZ Gold Flex Golf Swing Trainer Warm-Up Stick, currently 31% off its regular price. Use the stick to warm up before heading to the course. Swinging the weighted head will help you to generate muscle and power with your shots, and the repetitive practice will develop good habits along with strength, tempo and flexibility.
