7 Best Early Amazon Prime Day Deals 2022

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from covering Amazon Prime Day for the last five years, it’s that the best early Prime Day deals are on Amazon’s own devices and in-house brands. In the past, that’s included the Echo Dot, Solimo dog treats, Amazon Fresh olive oil, and lots of smart TVs that are (of course) enabled with Alexa and Fire TV.

That’s basically the case with this year’s batch of early Amazon Prime Day deals, too — but it doesn’t mean these deals are bad. There’s lots of expert-recommended smart-home tech, including the Eero mesh Wi-Fi system and video doorbells from Ring, along with 4K TVs under $500. We didn’t find any dog treats or olive oil, but we did find some customizable leggings.

If you see something you like, go for it. These deals probably won’t get much better if you wait until Prime Day officially starts on Tuesday, July 12. But as with all of the Prime Day deals, you’ll only get these discounts if you’re an Amazon Prime member. It costs $14.99 per month, or $139 annually, and right now, Amazon is running a promotion where you get one week of Prime for just $1.99. (Prime Day, unfortunately, is about two weeks away — so you’ll have to start paying the full monthly price in order to take advantage of all the best deals.) We’ll update this post with more early Prime Day deals as they come up, but if you want even more sales coverage, including real-time Prime Day updates, sign up for our email newsletter.

Amazon eero 6+ Dual-Band Mesh Wi-Fi 6 System

These sleek Eero boxes are meant to replace your standard internet router and help you set up a mesh Wi-Fi network in your home. What that means, according to David Pogue, is that they’ll “create a single blanket of strong Wi-Fi coverage everywhere you go.” And of all the mesh networks he’s tried, Eero is the best-designed and most user-friendly. This set includes one base station and one beacon and should be enough to cover a two-bedroom home.

If your place is a bit bigger, you should spring for the bundle that includes a second beacon for homes up to 4,500 square feet.

Ring Video Doorbell (2020 Release)

Ring was one of the first big names in video doorbells, and the company was acquired by Amazon in 2018 for over $1 billion. That means it will seamlessly connect with your existing suite of Amazon smart-home products. You can even stream doorbell footage to an Echo Show or interact with the doorbell (by talking to someone at your door, for example) via Alexa.

If you don’t already have an Alexa-enabled device but want to give this video doorbell a shot, this bundle includes the Echo Show for just $10 more.

Toshiba 55-inch Class M550 Series LED 4K UHD Smart Fire TV

You can always find a slew of smart TVs on sale for Prime Day, and this 55-inch 4K TV from Toshiba stands out as an especially good deal. It’s got 4K resolution and HDR, which provides a wider range of colors and greater color contrast. It is, of course, enabled with Fire TV, but you can also get other streamers like Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+.

The last — and only — time this 50-inch TV was so cheap was Black Friday. It isn’t quite as spec’d out as the M550 above, but it does have 4K resolution (and if you’re a casual viewer, you probably won’t notice a difference).

Core 10 Women’s ‘Build Your Own’ Yoga Pant Full-Length Legging

Former Strategist senior writer Karen Iorio Adelson reviewed Core 10, Amazon’s in-house activewear line, in 2018, and she was impressed with these “build your own” leggings. “They aren’t totally custom — this isn’t Alexa taking laser measurements of your legs and 3-D-printing pants on the spot yet,” she explains, but you can dial in your preferred waist style, length, and size (from XS to 3X).

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
