Amazon started making its own Fire TVs in recent years, not to be confused with its popular Fire TV Sticks. These are full TV sets that come in a range of sizes, from 43 to 75 inches. The Omni Series is a 4K smart TV with HDR that offers hands-free Alexa, Dolby Vision and much more. At these discounts, they are a great option for anyone looking for a large-screen TV at a discounted price.


Amazon Prime Day is a great time to invest in a new mesh Wi-Fi system for your home. Put an end to dead zones and slow spots around your home with Eero's latest systems which are compatible with Wi-Fi 6, 6 Plus and 6E. There are single units, two-packs and three-packs available, so be sure to check out the whole sale now as these prices may not last until Prime Day actually arrives.


Ahead of Prime Day, Amazon is offering Prime members the ability to try its Audible Premium service for three months at no cost. The service normally costs $15 a month, making this a $45 savings and a great way to listen to some audiobooks this summer while relaxing by the pool.

Things like toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent and even razors are likely used in your home on a daily basis. These necessities don't always go on sale, but when they do it's a great time to stock up. Right now, spending $75 on popular brands including Tide, Gain, Gillette, Bounty and more will score you a free $20 credit that you can use for another purchase on Prime Day. That's like getting free money for things you need to buy anyway.


Right now, Prime members can get four months of access to the service for free ahead of Prime Day. It offers unlimited access to more than 90 million songs that you can stream or listen to offline from a wide variety of devices, like your phone or an Echo Dot. Remember to cancel it before the trial ends or it will auto renew at $9 a month.


Whether you're planning an outdoor excursion this summer or want to be prepared for potential bad weather, having a portable power station is a great investment. Ahead of Prime Day, Amazon has a $50 on-page coupon for Jackery's Portable Power Station 500. It has three USB-A outputs, two DC ports, one car charging port and has a small display for seeing how much power is left. It comes with a built-in handle to make transporting it around easier.
