Can you believe it’s already July 2, guys? It seems like only yesterday I was debating whether or not it was too cold for sandals. But now that July is in full swing, it means the count down to Prime Day is officially on, too. This two-day sales mega-event is like the Super Bowl of savings and it’ll start on Monday, July 15 and last for 48 hours.

It’s huge. It’s overwhelming. It’ll last 12 hours longer than it did last year, which means you’ll have even more time to score the best deals online. Here at Reviewed, we know how overwhelming Prime can be, which is why we’re trying to give our readers all the knowledge they need in advance to make the most of it. And right now, you can actually get discounts on several of our favorite top-tested products, from the Instant Pot Plus to our favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker and more.
1. This Instant Pot that’s finally back at its lowest price
Did you honestly think Instant Pots wouldn’t be on sale for Prime Day? Everybody’s favorite kitchen appliance and the best sales bonanza of the year were practically made for each other, and we’re getting a little sneak peak at just how good Prime Day will really be thanks to this early sale on the Instant Pot Duo Plus, a.k.a. one of our favorite pressure cookers of 2019. It’s an itsy bit better than the popular Duo model, especially since it comes with extra features like an egg cooker and cake maker. Plus, it’s fitted with a large blue LCD screen for easier use. You can save about $40 on it right now, which is just a jaw-dropper of a deal. Plus, if you order it now with Prime shipping, you can get it in time to make some incredible sides for the Fourth of July.

2. The best affordable Bluetooth speaker we’ve ever tested
I’m counting down the days until Prime Day, sure. But the other big event I can’t wait for is the 4th, because for me, it’s basically one long weekend’s worth of cookouts, fire pits, ice cold beers, and impromptu dance parties. But the secret to having an impromptu dance party s that you need a good way to blast those summer jams. Fortunately, our favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker is on sale and it’s $8 off in red and blue. This speaker offers 24-hour battery life, impeccable sound, and it’s easy to transport, so if you wanted to keep the good vibes going and going, you really could with this speaker.

3. This best-selling mini fridge that’s perfect if you live with roommates
For a long time when I lived with roommates, I used a mini-fridge, too. Yeah, okay, I get that, that might seem a little weird, but who wants to fight over fridge space with a bunch of other 20-somethings? Plus, it gave me an excuse to buy all the wacky Polar and La Croix flavors my little seltzer-loving heart desired with no shame whatsoever that I might be hogging too much precious fridge space. Of all the mini fridges we’ve tested, this one from Danby was one of the more affordable models and it is hands down amazing if you need more space to stash your favorite beverages. It’s super affordable right now at just $188, which is the lowest price it’s been all year. While it didn’t win any awards against the competition, we still adore it because it’s so quiet. It also fits up to 120 cans, and the full-glass door and blue LED lighting make it so that you can see what you’re working with seltzer (or soda or beer or wine-wise) at just a glance.

4. The best headphones we’ve ever used (no, seriously)
Listen up, because this is one deal you really don’t want to miss if you’re searching for the best noise-canceling headphones. The Sony WH-1000XM3 over-ears are so good, they make us want to shout it from the rooftops. In fact, they’re so dang amazing that they just edged our old favorites—the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series IIs—for the top spot.
You don’t have to be an audiophile to appreciate how good these are (although it helps). Thanks to Amazon, there’s another reason to buy them, since you can actually save $96 on a pair right now if you buy them renewed. Technically, renewed status means they were pre-owned but were certified to work and look like new by Amazon. Trust us, it’ll be worth it if you want to upgrade your headphones game.

5. Our favorite wireless earbuds for a solid deal
Prefer earbuds to headphones? I hear you there. If you’re looking for a lightweight alternative to normal headphones, they’re obviously the way to go. And of course, AirPods are more than just “earbuds” right now—they’re basically the muse-have item of 2019.
When we tested the best true wireless earbuds of 2019 for ourselves, we dug their incredible audio quality, which is so much better than wired earpods. We also loved their extra-long battery life and durability, and on Amazon you can grab the latest model Apple Airpods (which now feature wireless charging using a Qi-compatible charging mat) for $20 off their standard price, which is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for them. Discounts on Amazon for Apple products almost never happen, so this is a deal you shouldn’t pass up.
