Ah, good old Hump Day. We’re right in the meaty part of the week where chances are, you could use a little mid-day break or two to shop for the latest online deals. Since Prime Day is happening just five days from now (can you believe it?), most of us are just bracing for the onslaught of ridiculously good sales that’ll be happening during this 48-hour mega event.

But in truth, it’s still a pretty good time to buy and shop for stuff right now. Don’t believe me? I spent the better part of this morning combing the interwebs for those can’t miss, can’t live without ’em products that are on sale right now in advance of Prime Day for awesome low prices. Here are the best deals you can snag this Wednesday to help get over the hump.
1. Under $200: Two of our favorite robot vacuums—at their lowest prices ever
Wish there was an easier way to clean and maintain your floors? One that—just hypothetically speaking, of course—did most of the work for you? Say hello to your next great household purchase: the robot vacuum. Robot vacs are designed to pick up every day dust, dirt, and what have you in between more thorough floor cleanings (although if you use it as your sole vacuum method, I wouldn’t blame you).
Here at Reviewed, we’re really obsessed with these little devices, and Eufy makes some of our favorites, including the most affordable smart robot vacuum we’ve ever tested, the BoostIQ RoboVac 30. Right now you can get it for its lowest price ever at $179.99 if you use the on-page coupon and promo code “ROBOVAC30,” so you’re saving $90 on this unit. Need something slimmer, or worried that your robot vac won’t fully get in tight spaces? The Eufy Robovac 11S Slim is already the best affordable robot vacuum we’ve used ever, and you can get for its all-time lowest price of just $149 thanks to an on-page coupon and the promo code “ROBOVAC11S.” If you’ve ever wanted a robot vac of your very own, now’s the time to treat yourself.
- Get the Eufy RoboVac 11S Slim for $149 (Save $74.99 with an on-page coupon and promo code “ROBOVAC11S“)
- Get the Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 30 with boundary tape for $179.99 (Save $90 with an on-page coupon plus promo code “ROBOVAC30“)
2. Get the most popular Instant Pot model for just $50
Instant Pots are kind of magic. They do just about everything from cook rice to yogurt, and they can make meal prep throughout the week so much more stress-free. Honestly, there’s really no excuse not to have one—unless you’re waiting for the right deal, that is. As any foodie knows, there are tons of Instant Pot models to choose from, and some get especially fancy. But if you’re new to this and you just want the best pressure cooker that money can buy that won’t be exceedingly complicated, the Instant Pot DUO60 is going to be perfect for you. This is the most popular model among our readers and right now on Amazon, you can get it for just $50 (you can also get it for this price at Macy’s still with the promo code “DEAL“), which is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for it. This is one early Prime Day deal you’ll definitely want to scoop up before it disappears.
Get the Instant Pot DUO60 7-in-1 6-Qt. Pressure Cooker on Amazon for $49.99 (Save $29.95)
3. Take up to 50% off at Shutterfly
Thinking about the fall already? If you’re headed back to school or your kids are, chances are that it’s really been on your mind, especially as we inch toward the half-way point in the summer. There’s all kinds of planning and shopping you’ll need to do between now and fall semester, but one thing you won’t have to worry about are pictures. Right now, you can get up to 50% off at our favorite online photo printing service on back-to-school supplies, hardcover books, gifts, and decor.

4. The most affordable Bluetooth speaker we’ve ever tried—at its lowest price ever
Summer cookouts that turn into lovely evenings on your back porch or in the yard are the best way to spend the season, in my humble opinion. The one thing that could possibly make it better? A portable Bluetooth speaker. Whether you’re at your own house or you’re headed off for a weekend at the beach, a speaker that you can use anywhere can take your good vibes to the next level. You can grab our favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker, the Anker Soundcore, for its lowest price ever in black, courtesy of an on-page coupon and the code “SDCSPK3102.” It comes with a powerful 24-hour battery life, impeccable sound quality, and lightweight portability, so you’ll have plenty of reasons to love this, and at this low price, you won’t want to miss out.
Get the Anker Soundcore Wireless Bluetooth Speaker for $20.99 (Save $7) with the on-page coupon and code “SDCSPK3102”
5. Get 3 months of Audible for just $15
As someone who loves the feel of an old book in their hands, I was initially skeptical about Audible. After all, who wants an audiobook when you can have the real deal, right? But a few years back, I signed up for a trial and I’ve never looked back. It’s easily one of the best purchasing decisions I’ve ever made and it’s my favorite way to get through genre fiction (here’s looking at you, fantasy and YA books) that I secretly love but maybe don’t want … cluttering up my already packed book shelves.
The way that Audible works is that each month, you’re billed $14.95 and you can download two Audible originals, and one audiobook of your choice for free. If you don’t like the audiobook, you can return it at any time (even after you’ve listened to it fully, FYI), and you can share your account with friends and family, so they can download and listen along with books, too. It’s a really cool service, and right now Amazon is offering the best deal of all time on it. For new subscribers who are already Prime members, you can get three months of Audible for $4.95 per month, so $15 in total for 90 days. For those of us who love a good story, it’s a dream come true.
That’s not the only thing, though. Past subscribers can also get an awesome deal right now too, and get an annual membership up-front for just under $120. Since annual memberships usually go for $150 (and the cost of a standard membership is $180 if you pay month-to-month), this is a great way to save money and jump back into the service. To sweeten the deal, Amazon is also throwing in an Echo Dot, which you can get for just under $1.00. Seriously, if you’re a book lover, do yourself a favor and try this out already.
- Get 3 months of Audible for just $4.95/month (Save $30, new subscribers only)
- Get an Audible annual membership for $119.50 (Save $30-$60) and get an Echo Dot for $0.99 (past subscribers)
6. Best fashion deal happening now: Take 40% off Champion, Levi’s apparel and more at Urban Outfitters
Champion apparel was all over the place in the 90s, and as I said yesterday, I can remember those sweatshirts in particular because they were one of my Mom’s staples for bumming around the house. They’re back in vogue now, along with mini-backpacks, platforms, and sporty, fluorescent-hued apparel. It’s not a look for everyone, but if you’re feeling some ’90s nostalgia, it’s a really fun moment in fashion right now, and Urban Outfitters is here to help you stay stylish and save too, thanks to this sale they’re running now. Today is the last day where you can get up to 40% off select Champion apparel, plus Adidas, FILA, Levi’s, and more. I’m all about this $49 sweatshirt (because duh), plus these vintage denim overalls ($79) and this little mini backpack ($20) are seriously adorable.

7. Get $500 off this impressive QLED smart 4K TV
I know you probably want to be outdoors as much as possible this summer—after all, it’s beautiful out there. But summer can also be a good time to upgrade your home theater, especially if you’re all about movie nights or binging on returning favorites like Stranger Things, Black Mirror, and The Handmaid’s Tale (although I’d urge you to avoid binge-watching the latter unless you have time for lots of aftercare). Right now thanks to Drop, you can get a terrific deal on one heck of a QLED smart 4K TV and get $500 off its usual list price.
What’s so great about this state-of-the-art TV? It’s part of the Q8 series, which we really enjoyed here at Reviewed. We haven’t tested the Q80R yet, but it’s definitely one of the most popular models in Samsung’s 2019 TV fleet, and offers incredible picture and sound quality. This Samsung model offers an especially vivid picture because it uses quantum dot technology and LED backlighting, so you’ll catch everything in stunning quality. Another perk to the Samsung 65-inch Q80R QLED Smart 4K UHD TV, beyond its awesome picture quality, is that it’s a smart TV. You can use it to stream all your favorites and access Samsung’s SmartTV platform and SmartThings Hub. Not only can you use it to watch shows and movies, but you can also control all your smart home devices and appliances while you do.
Thanks to Drop, this massive TV is on sale for $1,799. All you need to do is sign up for a free account with Drop to take advantage of this deal, and this Drop price is good through Monday, July 15. The TV itself won’t ship out until July 26, so you’ll have to content yourself with your old TV—for now.
