Prime Day is just a few days away, and Amazon is getting us pumped by unveiling a slew of early deals that may rival the big sale itself. I'm talking about serious discounts on Fire tablets, cheap headphones, and smart TVs as low as $99. If I didn't know any better, I'd say it seems like Prime Day has already begun. Keep reading for some of our favorite early deals, and take a look at the full list on Amazon so you don't miss anything. 

Naturally, many (but not all) of these deals require a Prime membership, just like the upcoming offers that make up Prime Day. We'll specify when that's the case so you don't run into any surprises. If you're not a member yet, now is honestly the best time to sign up, since Amazon offers a full 30 days for free. That'll give you enough time to take advantage of both the early deals and upcoming Prime Day offerings, not to mention benefits like free shipping and access to the Prime streaming library. 

Amazon Prime: 30-Day Free Trial

Amazon Prime: 30-Day Free Trial

Become an Amazon Prime member today and you'll unlock all of the early deals plus every featured offer when Prime Day hits. If you no longer want the membership after the sale event wraps up, simply cancel your account before the end of the 30 days. Otherwise, expect to pay $14.99/month for all the goodies listed above. 

In case you missed the announcement, Prime Day is set to occur on July 12th and 13th. It's hard to predict the exact deals that'll go live, but it sounds like Amazon will be trying to lighten the load on American households reeling from inflation by offering a huge bounty of deals sitewide. There's even talk of a possible second Prime Day this fall. But let's not get ahead of ourselves; keep reading for a few of our favorite early Amazon deals.
