These Affordable Massage Guns Are Just as Good as Pricier Models — and They're Even Cheaper for Prime Day
Prime Day 2020 is drawing to a close — and it’s safe to say huddling around our computers all day to cover Amazon’s best last-minute deals has led to some uncomfortable body aches and pains. So although we’ve identified spectacular deals on AirPods, face masks, and even garden sheds, all we want now is to uncover the best massage gun deals to soothe our exhausted muscles.
Luckily, today’s sale isn’t over yet and two of Amazon’s top-rated massager guns are heavily discounted until midnight: the Vybe Premium Percussion Massage Gun and the Vybe Pro Percussion Massage Gun. Both deep tissue massagers use powerful percussion movements to penetrate the muscles and help them relax, but each model has noticeably different features.
The slightly more affordable Vybe Premium Percussion Massage Gun packs a punch with five vibration settings that deliver up to 3,200 strokes per minute. It comes with four unique therapeutic attachments — including a special knot-busting head to reach trigger points and a wishbone design to target pain along the spine — and has enough battery life to run for four hours.
Called “the best money ever spent” by one reviewer, the premium model is extra quiet and is quieter than 60 decibels, or the equivalent of a normal conversation. It also has a lightweight handle and comes with a sleek carrying case that makes it easy to transport.

The higher-end pro model is slightly louder than the former with a smaller battery life, but delivers even more power with up to 3,400 strokes per minute. It also makes up for the difference by offering more versatility through nine different intensity settings and eight interchangeable heads.
Better yet, the popular pick already has more than 1,000 perfect ratings from reviewers that say it’s just as good (if not better) than pricier alternatives like Theragun, Hypervolt, and TimTam. Plus, shoppers say it’s actually much quieter, too.

And whether you’re prone to back pain, regularly weightlift, or occasionally fall asleep in the wrong position, you’ll find these massager guns can be a total lifesaver for a quick recovery. In fact, one reviewer wrote they literally “can’t recover” without these massage guns, while another called them “literally life changing.”
“After a lower back injury I was in constant pain for a period of 7 to 8 months, until I bought this massager. The day-to-day pain was due to intense and unrelenting muscle tension that originated from lower back/buttock — and caused pain all down the leg and into the left foot,” they wrote. “This massager was able to penetrate into the deep tissue muscle layers and within a week or two of using, most of the pain and muscle tension was gone. [It] was pretty amazing, and yes, rather life changing.”
If you’re still on the fence, consider this: Both massager models are still marked more than $30 off right now. But when Prime Day ends at 11:59 p.m. PT tonight (Wednesday, October 14), it will take these unbeatable prices with it.
