If you buy only one thing today, make it this Samsonite suitcase — it's nearly 50% off

What is it?

Got a big-time getaway planned? Ask yourself this question: Is your luggage up to snuff? If not, we found an amazing deal from one of the best brands in the business. On sale for Prime Day for as little as $157 (down from $310), this 28-inch Samsonite Winfield 2 Hardside Checked Bag is one of Amazon's top-selling suitcases for good reason — and in true Samsonite fashion, it comes with a 10-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

This baby sports 360-degree spinner wheels for easy navigation. We love the side-mounted TSA locks and that the hard shell features a brushed pattern to hide scuffs and scratches. The bag expands 1.5 inches so you can really pack it in.

Why is it a good deal?

Samsonite is a standout brand for all the right reasons, and this bag is no exception. It's a great buy even when it's not on sale, but the fact that the purple version is nearly half-off today makes it one deal you don't want to miss.

Why do I need this?

Not only does this sleek carry-on fit in the overhead bins of most airlines, but it also features four multidirectional spinner wheels for an effortless glide through the concourse. If security is a concern, this sturdy case has side-mounting TSA locks to keep your stuff safe and comes with a 10-year warranty. Bonus: it's expandable, so you'll always have room for souvenir shopping.

What reviewers say

Over 15,000 shoppers have given this carry-on a flawless rating: “I can't say enough good things about this line from Samsonite!” said a five-star fan. "Since purchasing them a year ago to replace my older luggage I've thrown them on and off buses, dragged them from train to train, crammed them in and out of more taxis and shuttles than I can count and dragged them about a mile and a half down the road in the rain (they're surprisingly water-resistant at the seams and expansion fabric, although certainly not waterproof). Through it all the handles have held up. The locks are still in perfect working order. ... A must-have."

Another shopper was thrilled with how much it holds: "Shockingly spacious inside, given the outside measurements!"

This five-star shopper is hooked on the ease of use and durability. "They weigh almost nothing and we can load them with our items instead of losing 10 lbs. just for the suitcase itself. The wheels spin and move like butter on a hot pan! I have had others that I would swear that all four wheels are trying to move in separate directions. They have been tossed around like a sack of potatoes by the airline staff and they still look great! I am very happy with my purchase."

Our advice? Snap one up and enjoy the ride.
