Instant Pot 6-Quart Pressure Cooker on sale for Amazon Prime Day 2019

Amazon Prime Day 2019 is right around the corner, and we’re already firing up our clicking fingers. For the uninitiated, this online shopping event is an opportunity for Amazon to roll out its best deals of the year, in rapid succession, over the course of an edge-of-your-seat period of time.

This year, for the first time ever, the super sales event will last 48 hours, starting Monday July 15 at 12 a.m. PST (3 a.m. EST) and ending Tuesday July 16 at 11:59 p.m. PST. You’ll need to be a Prime member to take advantage of massive deals, and you can sign up for a 30-day free trial here. Once you’ve done that, get ready to score on beauty products, appliances, electronics, home decor, eBooks, and basically everything Amazon already sells at incredible price points... but even cheaper.

In addition to products, Amazon has traditionally offered savings on subscriptions to services like Audible, Amazon Music, and Kindle Unlimited. And, of course, Prime Day is the time to invest in Alexa-enabled devices, like Fire tablets and the new Echo Dot, which is already marked down by 50 percent (for now).

And that brings us to the best part: Building up to the big day, Amazon is already rolling out early Prime Day deals that you can shop right now! Below are our top five, can’t-miss sales.
