5 more deals you need to see before Prime Day 2022 starts tomorrow

The ironic thing about this early sale article is that what I’m actually going to suggest is that you wait until Prime Day before buying anything big. Yes, there are some deals available already, and if you’re planning on buying multiple items before and then also during Prime Day, go for it.

But if there’s just one deal you’re looking for during Prime Day, I’d say you’ll definitely have to wait until the $50 gift card deal starts July 12 at 12:01 am PT. This deal gets you an additional $12.50 free when you top up your Amazon balance by $50 (using promo code GCPRIME22). However, this is only for those who are doing this for the first time. So if you’ve taken advantage of a similar deal, you might be out of luck this time. For now, here are all the other early deals to consider before Prime Day 2022 kicks off tomorrow.

1. Get 3 months Audible Premium for free

Yes, we’ll be talking about this deal all Prime Day. It’s already available and probably one of the best discounts we’ve seen during the Prime Day sale. Prime members can currently get 3 months of Audible Premium Plus absolutely free.

It’s an excellent deal and well worth it considering it’s free. Audible Premium Plus typically costs $14.95 per month, saving you almost $45 overall on the service. In addition, the 3-month membership gives you 3 audiobook credits, as well as unlimited access to the Premium Plus library at no additional cost (without having to use any of your credits as well). This is our most popular Prime Day offer, grab it ASAP.

2. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD for $34.99 (best price ever)

This is very likely a price match to what Best Buy is offering, but we’re not complaining, especially since we already have plenty of Amazon credit to spend thanks to the Prime Day stamp card deal.

Breaking this deal down, you don’t have to be a Prime member to access it, but it’s definitely still worth mentioning while on sale. There’s a massive $25 discount on Skyward Sword HD for Switch, making this the absolute best price we’ve seen for the game this year.

3. Get an Echo Dot (4th Gen) for $19.99 (save $30)

With Prime Day pretty much here, it’s no surprise that one of the most popular items on sale is back at a deep discount. Echo Dot smart speakers dominate Amazon sales every year, and I’m expecting something similar this time around.

With a massive $30 discount this year, you can get an Echo Dot for just under $20. Not only that, but if you snag one of the eligible Prime Day free credit deals, you can get the speaker pretty much for free if you’re smart enough.

4. Get 1 year GrubHub+ free with Prime

Here’s good news for Prime members who don’t like to cook. This deal is pretty awesome, as all Prime members are eligible for an annual subscription to Grubhub+, a grocery delivery service that typically costs $9.99 a month. All you have to do is be a Prime member and you can benefit here.

5. Fire TV Sticks on sale for Prime Day 2022

Here’s another absolute juggernaut for Amazon during Prime Day. Fire TV Sticks are selling like hotcakes during sales, and that’s not surprising either. Right now, you can get a Fire TV Stick for just $16.99, a 4K Stick for $24.99, or a 4K Max (with WiFi 6) for just $34.99. These are all fantastic offers to consider on Prime Day 2022.

Here’s a quick bonus mention as I think it’s very relevant for those looking to save as much money as possible during Prime Day. Amazon is running a “Prime Stamp Card” promotion that gives Prime members $10 in Amazon credit.

So if you shop early before Prime Day, you can easily get $10 back on Amazon. In addition, this deal also runs during Prime Day. So if you make a purchase during Prime Day, make sure you complete all other steps to receive your $10 credit.

Once you have a Prime membership, you can start collecting stamps. Note that you must do all four things before 11:59 p.m. ET on July 13. Here’s what you need to do:
