Thankfully, if you simply can’t wait until next week for major savings, you don’t have to, because plenty of items are already discounted on the site.

Some of the best early Prime Day deals happening now are on highly sought-after Amazon devices like Echo Dots, Fire tablets, Kindles, and more for up to 60 percent off.
