Amazon Prime Day (which, being two days long, has a misleading name) doesn’t arrive until June 21 this year. But that doesn’t mean you can’t start shopping and saving right now. Some early Prime Day deals—especially Prime Day tech deals—are already in play. Consider it a teaser for the main event.
Much like Black Friday in the fall, there are more deals than can fit in a short two-day sale, so Amazon launched an Early Prime Day Deals page to roll out some of the discounts ahead of the savings event. Currently, the page features markdowns on Amazon smart home devices like Kindle readers, Fire tablets, Echo and Alexa devices and more.
Will these be the best prices of the season on these gadgets? Almost certainly not—we expect to see deeper price cuts on many of these products kick in on June 21. But if you can’t wait till next week, there are some respectable discounts to be had right now. Read on for the best early Prime Day tech deals at the moment. And check back later this week, because this article will be updated as we get closer to Prime Day.
Early Prime Day Tech Deals To Shop This Week
Apple AirPods Pro
This isn’t the lowest price we’ve ever seen for the Apple AirPods Pro, but the $52 markdown is a healthy discount nonetheless. With your purchase, you’ll get a trio of silicone tips to help you find the best fit. Unlike the original AirPods, this updated pair is water resistant, so it’s safe for exercising and using in the rain. Plus, the AirPods Pro have 24 hours of battery life when topped off via the charging case and they come with Siri built in.
Amazon Music Unlimited
Amazon Music Unlimited is like Amazon Music on steroids—instead of access to 2 million songs, you get 60 million commercial-free tracks that you can listen to on almost any device. It’s usually $8 per month for Amazon Prime members or $10 per month if you don’t have Prime, but right now you can sign up and get a four-month free trial. If you’re not crazy about it, cancel before the end of the four months and you’ll never pay a cent.
Toshiba 43-inch C350 Series 4K Smart Fire TV
This 43-inch 4K UHD television combines a bright and sharp LED display with Amazon’s Fire TV streaming operating system. The Fire TV interface is excellent and offers essentially every streaming channel you might want to watch (including Disney+, Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, Hulu and thousands more). If you want to, you can also connect an HD antenna to pull in over-the-air local programming. And the 30% off discount makes this competitive with Black Friday TV sale pricing. If you’re looking for something a little bigger, there’s also a 50-inch version of this TV on sale for $400, which is $70 off its regular price.
Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Generation)
Amazon’s own wireless earbuds are now in their second generation, equipped with highly effective noise cancellation and a transparency mode that lets you easily hear outside sounds with a tap. They have touch controls and built-in fitness tracking features, as well as a Find My Buds tool that’s very similar to Apple’s Find My app. These headphones are currently $40 off the regular price, and the version with a wireless charging case is also on sale.
Roborock S6 MaxV Robot Vacuum Cleaner
Roborock’s S6 MaxV is the robot vacuum brand’s flagship model, equipped with both vacuum and mop capabilities. It also features special sensors to help it navigate around your home and avoid obstacles. It can map and remember your entire house, complete with virtual no-go zones and individual rooms. Best of all, you can control it from the mobile app or with your voice by using Alexa or Google Assistant. And this sale price is the lowest we’ve ever seen for this model. To get the full $170 discount, be sure to click the coupon on the product page, which will give you an additional $30 off the $580 sale price.
Garmin Fenix 6 Pro GPS Watch
Garmin is the go-to wearables brand for athletes who are serious about tracking their fitness and performance, and the Fenix 6 Pro is one of the best rugged smartwatches money can buy for outdoor enthusiasts. It’s designed with features to satisfy athletes of all sorts, from runners and skiers to golfers, and includes more clever features than you’re likely to ever need. The always-on 1.3-inch display can be used to show topographic maps, track your heart rate and pulse oxygen levels, includes a grade-adjusted pace guidance feature called PacePro and more. And depending upon how you use the watch, the battery lasts anywhere from 14 to 48 days.
Amazon Echo Dot (4th Generation)
If you apply the promo code PDDOT2PK, you can get two Echo Dots for the price of one, which will save you $50 at checkout. This is the newest iteration of the Amazon smart speaker, shaped like a small fabric-covered sphere. It has improved sound quality but still includes all the usual features, like Alexa voice commands, the ability to operate thousands of smart home devices and access to Amazon Music, Spotify, SiriusXM and more.
If you prefer audio books to physical copies, consider signing up for an Audible subscription. Thanks to an early Prime Day deal from Amazon, you can get your first four months for just $7 each month. It’s a great opportunity to see if this service is right for you while saving more than 50% for a truly extended introductory offer. Just keep in mind that the monthly rate reverts to $15 per month after those first four payments.
Facebook Portal 10-Inch Smart Video Calling Device
You’ve probably heard about Amazon’s Echo Show smart display, but the Facebook Portal is a similar device worth checking out—especially while it’s almost half off. It’s a formidable smart display that you can use as a digital picture frame and to make video calls. The Portal is even shaped like a picture frame, which makes it a natural for showing off you photo collection, but it also connects you to your Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp contacts for instant video calls.
Roku Express 4K+ Streaming Device
Roku is the gold standard when it comes to streaming video players, and this Roku Express 4K+ is a brand new model for 2021. It can stream all your favorite channels in 4K UHD and supports virtually every streaming channel on earth, including the most popular ones like Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max and Disney+, just to name a few. The bundled Roku remote can be used to control your TV in addition to the media player, and it’s 25% off during the lead up to Prime Day.
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700
The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are among our favorite audio gear. They have outstanding noise cancellation (easily in the top three headphones on the market, as far as we’re concerned) and the relatively new 700s have a fresh, modern design that looks good and is comfortable to wear. You also get built-in Alexa and Google Assistant voice commands as well as a 20-hour battery life. The current $329 price tag is the lowest these earphones have ever been.
Get a $10 Credit for Prime Day
Ok, so this particular deal isn’t all about tech, but it’s too good not to mention. Make any purchase on Amazon’s Support Small page (we recommend the electronics section) and as long as you spend $10, Amazon will send you an email with a $10 credit that’ll be automatically applied to your account for use during Prime Day. We recommend saving that credit and using it to take $10 off a new laptop, tablet or gaming device during the 48-hour sale.
