Best early deals to shop now

As far as our calendars are concerned, there’s simply no better two-day shopping event than Amazon Prime Day.

Now that we know the event is taking place Tuesday, July 12 and Wednesday, July 13 (we have a countdown in place already, in case you were wondering), we’re upping the deal-hunting and product-recommending tenfold.

The major retail shopping holiday — which was initially launched to celebrate Prime members — is now a full-fledged celebration that’s not only a cash cow for Amazon, but a cash-saver for us.

With thousands upon thousands of marked-down prices, you’re bound to find at least one product (or ten) that’ll pique your interest across a slew of categories: the buzziest smart home products (including Amazon devices), time-saving air fryers and a host of home decor and beauty buys to comb through.

What’s more, you’ll have prime access (pun totally intended) into all the much-acclaimed Amazon best-sellers that are the retailer’s finest (think: the Revlon Blow-Dryer brush we reviewed and wireless earbuds, among others).

The best early Prime Day deals of 2022

You don’t want to miss Amazon Prime Day 2022 and, as we anxiously await the shopping extravaganza, the retailer is hosting some fabulous deals to kickstart your add-to-cart experience.

Note: As Amazon Prime Day 2022 approaches, we will diligently look out for all the best Prime Day deals for you. We will continue to update this story with more great deals ahead of Prime Day.
