The official start of Prime Day may still be a few days away, but that isn’t stopping the retailer from kicking off some epic sales. 

Amazon dropped tons of early Prime Day deals days ahead of the annual shopping event, which begins on October 13. With discounts up to 60 percent off, it’s the best way to get in on the savings and get your hands on popular products that are at risk of selling out—all before the frenzy peaks. Apple iPads, Bissell vacuums, and Casper pillows are just a few of the items that are already on marked down. 

Best Early Prime Day Deals

One of the most impressive sneak peek deals applies to the latest eighth generation Apple iPad, which is discounted despite launching just a couple of weeks ago. Given the brand’s popularity and the tablet’s array of new features, the iPad is likely to be one of the first items to sell out. It’s also likely to be one of the hottest holiday gifts this year, making now the perfect time to grab it for less.  

While most of the promotions are open to all shoppers, the epic Echo Dot two-pack offer is one of several Prime Day member-exclusives. Prime subscribers (or anyone who signs up for a free 30-day trial) can now get two of the smart speakers for less than the usual price of one. Those who register for a free trial will gain access to more markdowns like this one, including savings on Toshiba televisions and other Amazon device deals. There are hundreds of sales scattered across Amazon’s Prime Day hub, but if you want to skip the hunt and save yourself some time, start with our curated list of the best offers. Just be sure to grab items that catch your eye now because popular products may run out of stock before the event even begins.
