If you want to view this Saturday's (October 14) solar eclipse safely, you'll need a pair of specialized glasses. Sunglasses are not safe or appropriate for solar viewing. Fortunately, they're relatively inexpensive and you can get 20% off a 12-pack. These SKKAEO solar glasses are scratch-resistant and are compliant with ISO 12312-2 international standards to keep out 100% of harmful ultraviolet and infrared light.

Save 20% and get a 12-pack of solar eclipse glasses for $14.30 on Amazon

It should be noted that NASA does not approve any brand of solar viewing glasses, so the sell line in the listing as 'NASA-approved' is wrong. However, they are stated as complying with ISO 12312-2 international standards for safe viewing of the sun. 

This is a top deal for a number of reasons. Yes, it's timely ahead of Saturday's solar eclipse but it's also the lowest ever price we've seen for them on Amazon. Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days event is well underway and this deal shows. The 'ring of fire' eclipse will be visible across Northern and Southern America and of course, you should never look at the sun without protection so, why not take advantage of a top deal just in time for the solar event?

While we recommend taking advantage of a deal like this, if you want to check out more deals and astronomy content, you should take a look at our best telescopes, telescope deals and binoculars deals guide.
