Amazon’s annual spend-a-thon has started its descent, and it’s time to start reading up on the best early Prime Day luggage deals from Tumi, Delsey Paris, Samsonite, and GQ favorites like Carhartt, Rains, and Thule. While the mega-store keeps shoppers guessing the exact dates, you can expect Prime Day to begin in mid-July. If you want to order new luggage before your next trip on the Fourth of July weekend, however, you can take advantage of the best luggage deals already live on the site ahead of Prime big deal days.

We’ve collected all the best Amazon Prime Day luggage sales for you below, including carry-on luggage, hardshell options, weekender bags, upright luggage, duffle bags, travel backpacks, spinner luggage, checked bags and more, plus some insider details on what to expect when Amazon finally throws down the summer sale gauntlet.

What To Expect During Amazon Prime Day 2024

Typically, Prime Day takes place over two days in mid-July, but unofficial sales typically start weeks before the official kickoff. Already, we’re seeing new price drops on top luggage brands and also discounts on lesser-known brands (you know, the ones GQ readers know). Because of this, hardside expandable luggage, softside expandable luggage, carry-on suitcases, options with spinner wheels, toiletry bag, travel accessories, and tech products with chargers that come in clutch at the airport are already cheaper than they were a few weeks ago. Before adding a deal to our shopping guide below, we check price history tools and our past coverage to ensure the deal is actually worth your time (the fine print is that not all “discounts” in Primeland are actually genuine deals).

Lastly, while we’ve found a decent number of luggage deals already, we haven’t found many discounts on luggage sets so far. If you need a new two- or three-piece luggage set, then we recommend waiting for Prime Day itself. That’s when we expect more baggage bundles to drop into the sales department.

Rollers, Spinners & Checked Bags

Ben Sherman

Derby Spinner 2-Piece Set

Amazon is packed with hardside luggage bearing clothing brand logos (no lie, you can get Wrangler luggage). But at this point, the affordable hardside category has become commoditized, and you’re mostly shopping for aesthetics. In which case, this standout green feels like a win.

Eddie Bauer

Expedition Duffel Bag 2.0

If your vacations involve booking guides and rental cars with 4WD, get yourself a beefy piece of luggage that can handle adventure. Eddie Bauer’s rugged rolling duffel has plenty of useful features, like a laundry compartment with odor control, smooth skate wheels for rolling over unpaved ground, and Goldilockscompression straps for cinching down all your gear.


Maxlite Softside Expandable Checked Luggage

When you need a goldilocks bag—big enough to check, not so big it takes up half your closet—reach for this 25″ in-betweener. A step up from Samsonite, it’s an all-black bag that won’t show any scuffs or stains even after years of hard-knock travel life.


Winfield 2 Hardside Spinner, 20” Carry-On

The famous travel brand’s Winfield line is an ideal 20-inch carryon. This spinner is small enough to fit in the overhead compartment, and the affordable price tag is like an unexpected upgrade when you’re least expecting it.


Helium Aero Hardside Expandable 29″ Checked Luggage

If you aren’t afraid to check a bag, but are afraid of overzealous baggage handlers, invest in the Helium Aero, a hardside bag with an extra-durable polycarbonate shell and an attractive metallic finish. This bag also gets bonus points for a locking handle that stays right where you want it to.


Crew Classic Softside Spinner, 21″ Carry-On

Travelpro’s “Crew” line has a simple pitch: These bags are stewardess approved. The latest entry in the lineup has durable but smooth-gliding wheels, handsome accents, and a smooth telescoping handle. It also has an extra inch on the average carry-on, and this is one arena where size matters.


20″ Carry-On Spinner

Most Amazon budget brands aren’t worth your time, but if you need a starter bag for a teen or Gen Z member of the family, this adorable spinner has just the right balance of personality and affordability.


Chasm Carry-On Spinner

Last year, Prime Day brought discounts on the Thule Subterra line, but this year, the Chasm lineup get the biggest price drops. This bag has a water-resistant exterior and an internal mesh pocket for dirty clothes, making it a convenient carry-all carry-on. Plus, if you love the look of this olive green bag, you’ll find a matching backpack below.

America Tourister

Cascade Hardside 24″ Spinner

Can you say ombre? With this unique finish, you don’t need to stick a silly little bow on your bag to recognize it on the carousel.


Alexis Hardside 29″ Checked Luggage

Don’t apologize for being an overpacker. Instead, get a bag that can fit all your outfits, your backup outfits, and the goodies you buy along the way. The unique polycarbonate shell gives this bag a distinct look, and it’s surprisingly lightweight for its hefty size.


19 Degree Extended Trip Hardside Checked Luggage

If you aren’t picky about the hue of your bag, you can find some massive $200+ discounts on Tumi hardside suitcases right now. If your starter suitcase is ready for retirement, upgrade to a premium bag that will last for decades. Better yet, both checked and carry-on versions of this baggage are on sale.

Duffle Bags


Heavy Haul Utility Duffel Bag

We always try to include a Carhartt duffle in our guide to the best Prime Day luggage deals, and this year it had to be the new Heavy Haul bag. It looks like something from the Carhartt WIP line, and we love the 700D brown canvas nylon, excessive number of handles, and extra-large 75L capacity.


Chasm Sports Duffle

This import comes by way of Amazon Japan. If that’s not enough to sell you on this fiery sports bag, then maybe the spacious 70L capacity, waterproof tarpaulin fabric, wide-mouth opening, and compression straps will finish the sales job. Yes, you can wear it as a backpack, too.


Hilo Weekender Bag

Looking for an affordable duffle that will still get you approving nods from fellow clotheshorses? Rains (yes, they’re on Amazon now) has you covered with this no-nonsense, weather-resistant black duffle.


Defender 4 Large Duffel Bag

This straightforward duffle will work equally well as a gym bag or a weekender, though depending on how much your feet sweat, probably not both.


Lite Duffel

The Australian EDC brand makes a no-frills duffle that’s still handsome enough for you. Make this svelte over-the-shoulder bag your new overnight partner or weekender go-to.



Subterra Daypack

Swedish brand Thule makes a mean runabout rucksack, with a bounty of protected pockets (including a molded case on the side for preserving your sunglasses) and a capacious 25-liter size that can stash a 15″ laptop by way of a quick access zip.


Chasm Backpack 26L

This durable sports backpack still has a compartment for your 15-inch MacBook. Though not quite as durable as the Thule cargo carrier on your car, it’s just as cool.


Rolltop Rucksack

Made with the Danish outerwear brand’s signature polyester fabric, this travel bag has a clean, minimalist look with smart details like a rolltop closure, carabiner, and side-open laptop sleeve. Just don’t call it a backpack. (It’s a rucksack—get it right.)


Voyageur Hannah Leather Backpack

Tumi’s leather backpack will be the ideal carry-on companion with a discrete luggage pass-through and enough room for your laptop or tablet.


Cool Backpack

Sometimes, the first backpack you owned is still the right choice 20 years later. Only now this classic Jansport comes with a 15-inch laptop sleeve.

Tote Bags


Helium DLX Weekender Tote Bag

A business class-worthy travel bag that’s wide enough to pop in a laptop, all your in-flight reads, and more.

Lo & Sons

Catalina Deluxe

Is it a duffle? Is it a tote? Keep them guessing with this easy-carry travel bag, which makes it easy to separate dirty and clean clothes into different compartments.

Travel Accessories


Packing Cubes 8-Pieces

At this point, everyone should have converted to the tao of packing cubes—and this mega-set delivers enough packing cubes for the entire family.


AirTag 4 Pack

Apple’s AirTags basically crowdsource tracking by anonymously using nearby iPhones to feed you the location of your items. Next time you walk through an airport, take note of how many iPhones you see, and rest easy knowing that none of your bags are going to slip off the grid (even if they don’t make the connecting flight).


Airplane Bluetooth Transmitter Adapter

Are you going to buy the overpriced headphones your flight attendent is hawking down the aisle? Hell no, you’ve got your dignity. So, plan ahead with this game-changer of a gadget, which lets you tune into the in-flight entertainment with your very own wireless earbuds or headphones. This Bluetooth transmitter keeps you connected and wirefree.


Laptop Backpack B210

When you’re checking a bag but still need to bring a laptop on the plane (ugh), this ultra-affordable, ultra-sleek laptop bag keeps you nimble and quick.
