Outfitting a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can be so expensive! MissionarySquare is relatively new…but on my other website, www.thegiftygirl.com I have been closely monitoring Prime Day and Black Friday for the past six years.
There are some things that go on sale regularly for these Amazon sales, and luckily for you a lot are on our missionaries’ packing lists!
I will be updating this post in the wee hours of each morning with that day’s best deals. You can either choose “Prime Big Deal Day Deals” OR type an item in the search bar and then click “Prime Day Deals” on the left to narrow down the search results to those items that are on sale.
Remember, that some of the Prime Day deals (usually labeled “Lightning Deals”) will go into your cart with a “timer” so you will need to purchase within 15 minutes or so. Read on to snag some deals that will save you some cash as you get your missionary ready.
Pro Tip: Always look to see if there is a “coupon” you can clip for the item. Sometimes you are able to stack the coupon with a Prime Day deal and save even more!
Keep scrolling for the best missionary deals!

Samsonite two piece luggage: Samsonite is well known for the durability of their luggage. This is a two piece hard sided set with 20″ and 24″ suitcases at a great cost!
3 piece Hard Shell Set has great reviews and comes in fabulous colors (easier for your missionary to find their luggage! It also has built in TSA locks and includes a 20″, 24″ and 28″ expandable. The 20″ is more carryon sized.
This travel Duffle bag comes in great colors, has a luggage pocket (to hook to the handle of a suitcase), can be squished to a much smaller size and is on lightning deal (limited quantity). This could be a great carryon option!
This is the 28″ Amazon Essentials Luggage Hard Shell that is also on sale.
Here is an even bigger piece at 30″ Hard shell suitcase from U.S. Traveler in Navy.
If you want your missionary to have luggage they can find easily, this Kenneth Cole Two piece set comes in amazing colors. (Prime day sale prices are slightly different for each color!)
8 Piece soft Sided Luggage including packing cubes: If you want soft sided luggage (that’s what we sent with my son to Brazil!) this is an amazing price.

This brand of three piece hard shell luggage is also an amazing deal (almost half off!) and has great reviews (plus lots of different colors to choose from.
If you are looking for soft luggage that can go under beds, this 4-piece set soft sided luggage set comes in lots of colors and looks like a great option.
If you need a carryon piece, this 16 inch option has some great organizing pockets and is hard shelled.
Packing Cubes are a great way to keep your missionary organized by compartmentalizing their clothes and other products. Sometimes (especially in foreign missions) they won’t have a dresser and will basically live out of their suitcase.
This is the brand of packing cubes we sent with my son! they have held up well through all his transfers and kept him organized (be sure to click the extra $2 off coupon)
Waterproof carryon backpack: This comes in a lot of colors and is waterproof! I love how it doesn’t lose it’s form. Be sure to check the extra 10% off coupon!
Large travel backpack that comes with 3 packing cubes This looks like an awesome option!
This Carryon Backpack looks like a solid and sturdy piece that will last a whole mission. (My son uses his when he does overnight splits!). Make sure and check the 15% off coupon that should stack on top of the sale price!
I LOVE this Carryon Backpack for women! SO cute and full of pockets. They also have more masculine colors also on Prime Big Deal sale!
If your son or daughter is headed somewhere rainy, this waterproof backpack will be a great thing to have! My son used his as a carryon and occasionally in the field.
Zipping Garment Bag: These are the coolest thing! It is a garment bag that zips into a duffel! My son took this as his carry-on and uses it for splits. Be sure to click on the extra 20% off coupon.
Travel Shoe Bags are important for missionaries because they keep those well used (DIRTY)shoes away from clothes during transfers. This travel shoe bag set is waterproof and zips up. Reviews are great!
Roll-up Vacuum Compression Bags: This kind doesn’t include a pump but works excellently! We used this type for my son.
Vacuum Storage Bags: These will be perfect for sizing down fluffy items like a pillow or blanket AND protecting clothing if your missionary is going somewhere with lots of rain. This 18 piece set comes with 12 that vacuum seal with the provided pump and 6 that hand roll the air out of them. There is also a 40% off coupon?! I’m not sure how that stacks or works with the sale price?? Make sure and check the box and see if it makes it even cheaper!
Lewis N. Clark Passport Neck Wallet: This one is highly rated and on a great deal for Black Friday
Passport Holder Pouch RFID blocking with lots of pockets and can go around the neck or attach to a belt! Black is the cheapest color option.
Travel Neck Wallet: This looks like a great option if you have a missionary traveling foreign!
Slim Passport Wallet: If you have a son (like mine!) who didn’t want to wear a neck pouch this is a nice looking wallet that is RFID blocking and holds passport and credit cards.
Canvas Crossbody Bag: This looks like the perfect size and comes in 3 colors. Could work for a sister or Elder (but is not waterproof!).
Waterproof Crossbody Bag: This is a great size, has many pockets (including one for a water bottle) and is waterproof. This is as close to the one my son took that I could find (his is not on Black Friday Sale)
This lightweight waterproof crossbody bag looks cute!
This Travel Jewelry Holder is compact and cute! Great for holding Sister Missionary Jewelry.
Mini Jewelry Case: This one is tiny and is half off!
Pants Hanger: This is what we bought for my Elder. It makes it easy (and compact) to hang pants!
Amazon Basics Wooden Tie and Belt Hanger: Another flat and easy to pack hanger that will help keep your Elder organized.
Travel Blanket/Pillow: This blanket folds into a pillow and has a handy strap so you can put it on your suitcase carryon handle. I HIGHLY recommend sending a blanket of some sort with your missionary, even if it says bedding is provided. Mission training centers are often kept on the colder side, temperature wise.
Travel Pillow: For long flights and bus rides, this comes in tons of different colors and is made of memory foam.
I can see this Waist clip fan being a life saver for Elders in hot and humid places! It hooks right to their belt and is on a great sale for Amazon Black Friday.
Another option is this neck fan. It would provide so much relief from the heat while out walking!
Umbrella: This Travel Umbrella comes in many colors and has a built in clip to hook to a crossbody bag! It is a MUST for Elders or Sisters in rainy areas!
Travel Umbrella with built in flashlight: This isn’t the same brand we sent my son but he has one with a flashlight and has used it and loves it!
Bedding Essentials on Prime Day for Missionaries
If you have a missionary going somewhere hot or humid, purchase cooling sheets like these that are on prime big deal days (and almost half off)! One missionary mom recommended purchasing full size sheets for missionaries serving foreign missions because beds aren’t always the same size. She sent four with her son and he was able to use extras on laundry day OR as curtains/room dividers (so smart!)
Twin sized Cooling Sheets for a great price! I sent dark gray ones with my boy.
Another must for foreign missions are bed bug mattress protectors. (I KNOW! It made me grossed out but it is a smart choice!) This zips over the entire mattress adding an extra layer of protection from bed bugs. Be careful with the cheapest options…they are more like paper and will not last 18 months-2 years for our missionaries.
You’ll also want a bedbug pillow protector. This is a two pack, so you could probably share with another missionary!
Travel Sheets When your missionary has to go on overnight splits, they will love having this set of sheets to put on their temporary bed. It is a two person set but should be fine for missionaries!
Travel Blanket: An extra blanket for beds and travel! This is compact and soft.
Compact Sleeping Bag: We sent this with my son to Brazil at his cousin’s recommendation (who served in Argentina. It is compact and warm! (and almost 50% off!) My son said this was the #1 favorite thing that he has taken on his mission! He has appreciated the compact size and warmth on chilly nights.
Shoes on Prime Day for Missionaries
I did a quick look through the most recommended brands for missionary shoes and found these shoes on Prime Black Friday sale. Prime day deals are sometimes only on certain sizes! Check your missionary’s size and then look for the blue “Prime Black Friday rectangle directly under the price.
Clarks Men’s Walking Oxford: Clarks is a highly recommended brand and these are 50% off with Prime Black Friday
Clark’s Chukka Boot: Another great shoe option at 57% off.
Rockport Stormsurge water proof Toe Boot These look as close to the ones we sent with my son (one pair anyway) that I could find. We wanted a higher side for walking through jungle-y places (although he hasn’t needed that where he is serving in Brazil!). These look nice too with dress pants.
Cole Haan Zerogrand Wing Ox Oxford: This is a great brand of shoe for missionaries and one of the top recommended on FB groups. Only certain sizes and colors are on Black Friday sale, but check this one out to see if it works for your missionary!
Copycat Cole Haan: You can’t beat the price on these lookalikes (and the reviews are good too!)
Men’s Winter Boots Waterproof Fur Lined: These look great, have amazing reviews AND are so affordable. Snow or rain in your son’s mission? These might be a great choice!
Men’s Chukka Boot if your missionary is serving somewhere more jungle-y this is a great option!
Pillow Slides Missionaries love having a soft pair of slides that they can wear in their apartment.
Shower Slides: These are so comfortable and great for missionaries. My son was grateful to have his! (and they are almost 50% off!)
Shoe Shine Kit: Teach your missionary the importance of keeping their shoes clean, conditioned and polished before they leave on their mission! A little bit of “Saturday is a special day” care every week will keep their shoes looking and functioning the best.
Shoes for Sister Missionaries
Clarks Slip on Loafers: These are one of the top recommended brands for Sister Missionaries,they have lots of color options and options for wide and extra wide feet! Just make sure the color and size you choose are on Prime Black Friday Deal!
Memory Foam Mary Janes: These have a lot of things to make them extra comfortable.
Mary Jane Shoes: These come in several colors and look like a comfortable walking shoe for Sisters.
Ultra comfortable slip on shoes: Sisters love this brand for comfort! They are 33% off.
Fur Lined Winter Boots: These are tall, warm and waterproof!
Sorel Winter Boot: I grew up in Alaska and Sorel boots were the only kind my parents bought…I still have a pair I wear in perfect condition 30 years later! (For real!) I would definitely splurge on these boots if I had a daughter going to a snowy location.
Columbia Snow Boots for Women: Columbia also makes a durable winter boot!
Rain Boots: These are so cute and over half off!
Shower Sandals for Women Your daughter will love having these to keep her feet from getting fungus/warts in shared showers.
Safety/Health Prime Day Deals for Missionaries
I wish they had this insulated 24 ounce Lifestraw bottle when my son left! (he just has a plastic lifestrpaw bottle) A great water bottle with a filter to keep water safe and cool (for missionaries serving in developing countries.
Lifestraw filtered water bottle: The exact water bottle we sent with my son is on sale today!
273 Piece First Aid Kit: We sent my son with a massive first aid kit like this one! I just wanted him to be able to have what he needed if he had a health emergency. Only certain colors are on sale so check before you buy!
This waterproof mini first aid kit is another great Amazon Big Deal Days buy! There is also a medicine bag (bag only!) that your missionary can use to put all of their meds.
Probiotics Probiotics are a great choice for Elders and Sisters serving in developing countries. Anything you can do to keep their stomachs safe(r) is worth the cost!
Reusable Earplugs (snoring companions?) We sent my son with these nice reusable ear plugs.
Laundry Products for Missionaries
Laundry Bag Backpack: This is GENIUS especially if your missionary has to haul their laundry to a laundromat. A big size plus lined inside for wet items, this is what we sent with my son. You can send this with a heavy duty 3M hook and your missionary can hang it up and have a dedicated laundry space.
Collapsible compact laundry bags two set: These look like a compact option great for missionaries!
Laundry Detergent Sheets: These are amazing for foreign missionaries AND missionaries heading to pretty much any MTC! They are like a dryer sheet but have laundry soap in them. They are light, easy to pack, and will get your missionary started on laundry without a trip to the store. My son loved these for the MTC and start of his mission.
Clothing Steamer: This is a game changer for ironing! Steaming clothes doesn’t require an ironing board and is so much faster! They are a little bulky, however (but worth it!).
Here is a more compact clothing steamer option. It is also more expensive but will be easier to tote around! Click the 10% off coupon!
Bath/Hygiene Products for Missionaries
Microfiber towels are the best option for missionaries serving in hot and humid climates. They are more compact than normal towels, and dry faster (a necessity in many missions without clothes dryers!). This set of two towels are sized larger 53.5″L x 26.5″W I would choose a darker color so you don’t see stains and dirt as easily!
Colorful Turkish towel Quick Drying This is a pretty towel option that also dries quickly!
Manicure Set: Having good toe and fingernail hygiene is important for missionary health, especially when they are walking a ton! You can find cheaper options but they are not as sturdy and long lasting.
Portable Clothesline This is the one we bought for my Elder! They have no dryers in Brazil (and many other places!) so this should help!
Mesh Shower Caddy: This is especially good for the MTC when your missionary needs to take hygiene items back and forth.
Missionary Tech Deals for Amazon Prime Day
Speaker with TF Card Slot: Per another missionary mom recommendation, I purchased a speaker for my son and put songs on SD/TF cards (Christmas, instrumental, EFY type songs). This will give them access to music! You can read all about how to do the music in this post How to send music with your missionary
This 2 pack set of Micro SD cards are 64 gb each they will hold a TON of music!
Headphones with Microphone and Noise Cancelling: These may not LOOK super cool, but I like that they aren’t gigantic (for packing sake) and include noise cancelling for those ever important weekly calls home! They are a great deal on this prime big deals day (make sure and clip the 10% off coupon too!)
WIreless Headphones: My son asked for these a few months into his mission for P-day calls home! These are compatible androids and missionaries love to use them for calls.
Folding Bluetooth Keyboard: This is one of MY favorite buys for my missionary because it makes it easy for him to type up letters every week. And those letters are the best part of my week!
Travel Alarm Clock This is compact, inexpensive and has lots of great features. Now that everyone has their own cell phone this might be a moot point…but maybe for missionaries that have a hard time waking up?
A universal travel power adaptor: This says it works anywhere in the world!
Clothes for Elders on Prime Day
Amazon Classic Fit Golf Pants Some Colors are on sale for Amazon Prime Day These come highly recommended for Elders. They are soft, wicking and dry fast. Make sure to order darker colors (doesn’t show sweat or stains as easily!). My son did NOT love these as they weren’t as stretchy as others. He has more of an athletic build so keep that in mind!
PGA Tour Flat Front Golf Pants: These are my son’s VERY favorite of all of the pants we sent. We ended up buying him and sending two more.
Flex Dress Shirt: This is a great looking dress shirt! It has lots of great reviews, stretch and is wrinkle Free.
Mens Crewneck Sweater: Tons of colors available, this has great reviews and looks so nice!
This Kallspin Cable Knit Sweater is so great in person soft and gorgeous…we bought it for my missionary in black and gray! And then he asked for two more colors.
Men’s Waterproof Windproof Winter Coat: This is inexpensive and has amazing rating! A great deal for a snowy assignment!
Merino Wool Socks This four pack of wool socks are the ones we purchased for my Elder. Wool naturally wicks sweat away so these socks should be great for any climate! There are several color options.
Under Armour Dry Tech Moisture Wicking Socks. this is a great deal for a four pack of socks ($2.80+ a pair) plus they are breathable and have medium cushion.
Sock Ties: I hear these are a popular trade commodity in MTCs! And they are super cheap under $4 a tie.
6 pack of neckties These end up being about $3 per tie, and are great for trading at the MTC/CTM!
4 pack of skinny neckties: These are great colors and patterns for $5 each!
Christmas Tie: This is cute and would be a fun Christmas gift! Grab two if you can (one for your Elder and one for his companion!
