It's Dec. 6, friends, which means our remaining holiday shopping days are numbered. If you haven't yet crossed off the chronic wanderlusters on your list, Amazon is offering a pretty great discount (up to 30 percent savings) on select pieces of luggage from the constantly expanding AmazonBasics brand.
If you're not yet familiar with the retailer's in-house brand, it offers exactly what it seems like it would: a wide range of simple, affordably priced essentials intended to make your life (and your travels) easier. There's a super-popular external hard drive case, a tablet stand with 2,500 five-star ratings, a beloved-by-many silicone baking mat, and a really solid set of packing cubes with over 1,000 glowing reviews. And, of course, there's luggage — which we've seen, unzipped, and wheeled about at an Amazon event earlier this year — that's surprisingly robust for the price.
The deal is part of this year's 12 Days of Deals promotion, which offers Amazon shoppers special savings on a particular category each day through Dec. 13. For your reference, here are the remaining themes:
12/6: Home (bedding, bath, décor)
12/8: Baby, pets, camera
12/9: Beauty and personal care
12/12: Furniture lawn and garden
12/13: Sports and outdoors
Before you get to shopping, it should be noted that all of the pieces come with a three-year limited warranty that promises to replace or repair the bag or offer you a refund only if the damage is a result of a defect in "materials and workmanship under ordinary use." This warranty does not cover problems caused by regular wear and tear or damage or loss caused by an airline. This is pretty standard, as only premium luggage brands like Briggs & Riley, Travelpro, and Eagle Creek have "no questions asked" warranties. But for less than $50? We'd call that a steal.
