Can't wait until Monday? Here's a few deals Prime members can get right now:

Certified Refurbished HD 8 tablet for $40 (16GB): This tablet (new) is a good value at $80. At $40, it's a real bargain. Read our full review here.

Echo Show for $130 (regularly $230, though it's usually on sale for less): We didn't love the Echo Show at $230, but it's more enticing at $130. Read our full review here.

Certified refurbished Kindle Paperwhite for $70: If you can't wait for the $80 Prime Day deal for a new Kindle Paperwhite, you can get this refurbished model for $10 less right now. 

Certified Refurbished Fire HD 10 Tablet for $90 (32GB): We expect to see a significant discount on the HD 10 on Prime Day, but this is still a great deal on this tablet, which you can now turn into an Echo Show. Read our full review here.

128GB SanDisk Ultra Micro SD for $32: This isn't related to Prime Day, but I just thought I'd throw it in because this is a very good price for a 128GB memory card.
