Instant Pot Duo Deals

You can find many different models under the Duo name, including the Mini, Nova, and Crisp (a pressure cooker air fryer combo).

 

1. Aim to get the 3-quart Instant Pot Duo Mini for around $60 on Black Friday.

It might be small, but this 3-quart Instant Pot is mighty with its 7-in-1 functions. Get it on Amazon during Black Friday and save $20 on their regular price of $79.95. Or, you could get it at Walmart during Black Friday, since they marked it down to $59.99 from $99.99 in 2020. Either way, same deal:

Buy 1 Instant Pot 3-quart Duo Mini 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker (reg. $79.95) $59.99, sale price
Free shipping with
Amazon Prime or on orders of $25+
Final Price: $59.99

Compare at Walmart: $59.99

 

2. Shop Target Black Friday and Cyber Monday for the best prices on the 6- or 8-quart Duo Nova Instant Pot.

Although you could scoop up the 6-quart Duo Nova for under $50 during Target’s Black Friday sale in 2020, the larger 8-quart Duo Nova model, which went on sale during Cyber Monday 2020, was a better deal (at $7.07 per quart) than the smaller version ($7.92 per quart). And it’d only cost you $6.53 more. If Target runs this same deal in 2021, I’d go for the larger Instant Pot.

Here are the best deals I found on the 6- and 8-quart Duo Nova models at Target during holiday 2020:

Buy 1 Instant Pot Duo Nova 6-quart 7-in-1 One-Touch Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker (reg. $99.99) $49.99, sale price
Use RedCard for 5% off
Free shipping on orders of $35+
Or free store pickup or “Drive Up”
Final Price: $47.49

Buy 1 Instant Pot Duo Nova 8-quart 7-in-1 Pressure Cooker (reg. $119.99) $69.99, sale price
15% discount
Use RedCard for 5% off
Free shipping on orders of $35+
Or free store pickup or “Drive Up”
Final Price: $56.52

Runners-up for low pricing on the 6-quart were Kohl’s at $59.99 plus $10 Kohl’s Cash and Macy’s, JCPenney, and Amazon for $49.99.

TIP: Create your own sale when you shop at Target. Scan Instant Pot barcodes with the Target app, or Google search “Instant Pot” to check out Target’s competitors to price match with other retailers like Amazon. If you find a better deal, show your cashier the price, and they’ll give it to you. Don’t forget to use your RedCard for an extra 5% savings.

3. Shop Macy’s Black Friday and save $10 over Amazon on the 10-quart Instant Pot Duo Nova.

Cooking for a crowd? You might want to go with the sizeable 10-quart Duo Nova at Macy’s Black Friday sale. In 2020, it’d cost you an extra $23.47 or $8 per quart compared to the 6- and 8-quart versions, but it was still cheaper than $89.99 for the 10-quart Duo Nova at Amazon’s Black Friday 2020 sale.

Buy 1 Instant Pot 10-quart Duo Nova 7-in-1 One-Touch Multi-Cooker (reg. $187.99) $89.99, sale price
Select No Hurry Shipping for $10 in Macy’s Money
Free No Hurry shipping on orders of $25+
Pay $89.99, plus $10 Macy’s Money
Final Price: $79.99

 

4. Save $86 on the 8-quart Instant Pot Air Fryer Duo Crisp during Target Deal Days.

You could save $86 on an Instant Pot Air Fryer Duo Crisp during Target Deal Days, which took place Oct. 10 – 12 this year. Not to be outdone, Amazon offered this model at the same price around the same time. However, Target had a couple of advantages. One, you could use your RedCard to save another 5%, knocking the price down to $113.99. Two, if the price drops between the Deal Days sale and Christmas, Target will adjust the price for you.

Buy 1 Instant Pot 8-quart 11-in-1 Air Fryer Duo Crisp + Electric Pressure Cooker (reg. $199.99), $119.99 sale price
Use RedCard for 5% off
Free shipping or store pickup
Final Price: $113.99

 

Instant Pot Max Deals

The difference between the Instant Pot Max and other models is the Max reaches 15 PSI, making it ideal for pressure canning foods.

 

5. Beat Amazon Cyber Monday prices on a 6-quart 9-in-1 Instant Pot Max by earning Kohl’s Cash.

While Cyber Monday is usually THE day to shop online for electronics or small appliances, Kohl’s in September 2021 offered 66% off the 6-quart Instant Pot Max and beat Amazon at their own game. The takeaway here is that even if the prices are close, or in this case, the same, always look into how much you can get back in Kohl’s Cash. Here’s the deal on the Instant Pot Max model I found in 2020 that Amazon couldn’t beat:

Buy 1 Instant Pot Max 6-quart Programmable Pressure Cooker (reg. $189.99) $79.99, sale price
Spend $25, receive $5 Kohl’s Cash, no limit
Free shipping on orders of $75+ or free curbside pickup
Final Price: $79.99, plus $15 Kohl’s Cash

Buy 1 Instant Pot 6-quart 9-in-1 Max Pressure Cooker (reg. $199.95) $79.99, sale price
Free shipping with Amazon Prime or on orders of $25+
Final Price: $79.99

Sign up for Amazon Prime a few weeks before Black Friday and be ready to jump on the deals.

 

 

Instant Pot Walmart Exclusive Deals

Walmart has the exclusive Pioneer Woman and Mickey Mouse Instant Pots that are definitely for a specific shopper. If you like the cheery patterns, then check into these for 50% off deals throughout the year.

 

6. Buy the Walmart exclusive Pioneer Woman 6-quart Instant Pot LUX60 for 50% off.

Walmart’s generally got some great rollback deals on their Instant Pots. However, one consistent deal I saw throughout 2020 was on the Walmart Pioneer Woman Instant Pot 6-quart LUX60 (reg. $99) on sale for $49-$59. It’s basically an Instant Pot Duo with cute flowers on it. If you can stand the flowers, you don’t have to wait till December to buy it on sale at Macy’s.

 

7. Save $20 on the 6-quart Walmart Exclusive Mickey Mouse Instant Pot Duo.

Like with The Pioneer Woman model, Walmart rolls back the price on the Mickey Mouse Instant Pot throughout the year. It debuted toward the end of 2020 and did not go on sale during the holidays, but I found this Instant Pot for $59.99 in March, April, May, and June 2021. Here’s the most recent deal I found:

Buy 1 Disney Mickey Mouse 6-quart Instant Pot Duo Pressure Cooker (reg. $79) $59, sale price

8. Save $40 on a 6-quart Star Wars Duo Instant Pot at Amazon in the spring.

The Instant Pot Duo Star Wars Collection includes R2-D2, Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper, and The Child from The Mandalorian. You can get these 6-quart Instant Pots at Amazon for $40 off their regular price. The lowest prices I found for this model ran during March and April 2021:

Off-Brand Pressure Cookers

Many off-brand pressure cookers function like an Instant Pot, minus the price tag. So, if you don’t care about the name, look for brands such as Insignia and Ninja Foodie.

 

9. Look to Best Buy during Black Friday for 50 – 63% off Insignia pressure cookers.

Best Buy has a few brands of pressure cookers that can perform many of the same functions of an Instant Pot. You can save an additional $20 if you go with an Insignia 6-quart cooker over the same size Instant Pot. Here are a few deals I found last Black Friday that ran through Christmas Eve:
