This year, Amazon decided to switch things up a bit for Prime Day. It will begin on Monday, July 15 and last for 48 hours—meaning it’s the longest Prime Day to date and 12 hours more than last year to snag incredible deals. But thankfully, you don’t have to wait until the actual Prime Day to score a good one.
More: Here’s how to prep for Amazon Prime Day now that dates are revealed
There are already so many amazing products at Amazon that are already at their lowest and Prime Day prices. How do I know this? Well not only do we test products here at Reviewed, but we also use price tracking tools so we know when they’re at their lowest prices, so you can get the best possible deal. This Friday, we found deals on Fire TVs, Amazon Echoes, and nugget ice machines—all before Prime Day.
1. The popular nugget ice maker at its lowest price ever
If you love the nugget ice that comes from the Cherry Limeade you always order at Sonic, then you’re going to love this deal. These small, easy-to-chew ice cubes are superior to regular ice, and you can get in your own home thanks to the Opal Nugget Ice machine. It’s typically wildly expensive at $500, but right now you can get it for just $378.21. It may still seem pricey, but this is a huge discount and literally the lowest price we’ve ever seen for it.
After testing this fancy ice maker, we were blown away by how perfectly shaped the ice was and how easy it was to use. But if you consider yourself a mixologist or are just obsessed with the nugget ice served at Sonic, we think this purchase is completely worth it.
Get the Opal Nugget Ice Maker for $378.21 (Save $121.78)
2. Amazon Echoes already at their Prime Day prices
Prime Day is known to have some of the best prices on Amazon devices, and Amazon decided to gift us early with huge discounts on Echoes—and you don’t even need a Prime membership to access these deals. Right now, you can get an Echo for $30 off and an Echo Dot for $25, which are the same prices we saw for Prime Day last year. Both of these Echoes are some of our favorite smart home speakers for their reasonable prices and sound quality. Plus, you can get easy access to Alexa, who can answer all of your questions about the deals going on during Prime Day.
- Get the Echo (2nd Generation) for $69.99 (Save $30)
- Get the Echo Dot (3rd Gen) for $24.99 (Save $25)
3. A portable charger for juice on-the-go
Between heading to concerts, being outside all day rooftop bar hopping, or hiking for hours, you’re going to want to make sure your phone is charged. Not only is it the worst feeling to have a dead phone, but it can be dangerous if you lose your friends. But you can keep your phone juiced up wherever you are with this discounted portable charger from Anker. It can deliver more than three charges to an iPhone X, offers high-speed charging, and has two USB ports, so you can offer some juice to a buddy, too.
Get the Anker PowerCore 15000 Redux Portable Charger for $31.99 (Save $8)
4. A Fire TV at its lowest price ever
There’s one official Prime Day deal you can get right now—you just need to be a Prime member to access it. The 43-inch Toshiba Fire TV has dropped down to $180, which is its lowest price we’ve ever seen. At typically $300, it’s usually a little more expensive for an HD TV, but with this discount, we find that it’s a completely reasonable purchase. It also has Amazon Fire TV built right in (one of our favorite streaming services), so you can easily stream all of your favorite TV shows and movies. Plus, with an Alexa voice-activated remote, you can use it to ask about Prime Day deals when the big day actually comes.
Get the Toshiba 43-inch 1080p Fire TV for $179.99 (Save $120)
5. Our favorite handheld knife sharpener at one of its lowest prices
A dull knife is not something you want to mess with. Not only does it make chopping anything much more difficult, but you also have a higher risk of the knife slipping and cutting your hand (believe me, I’ve been there). But with a knife sharpener, you don’t have to let your expensive knives go dull. The Chef’sChoice ProntoPro is the best handheld knife sharpener we’ve ever tested because in just a few minutes it gave our knives a more refined and sharp edge than any other manual sharpener we tried. Right now, you can get it for one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen.
Get the Chef’sChoice ProntoPro for $35.64 (Save $9.22)
