1. Up to 30% off Roku streaming devices
One of the best early Prime Day deals we’ve seen comes from Roku. Four of the brand’s most popular streaming devices—the Roku Express, the Roku Premiere, the Roku Streaming Stick+ and our favorite streaming device of all time, the Roku Ultra—up for grabs for up to 30% off. We loved these devices because they offer 4K content and advanced remote controls. Roku devices also bring together Apple TV, Netflix, Hulu, Sling TV, Disney+ and more popular streaming platforms and channels to your TV.
2. Less than $200: One of the best wireless earbuds on the market
Apple’s best wireless earbuds—the Apple AirPods Pro—just got a huge price cut for Prime Day, dropping from $249 to $219 to $199. A former best overall winner in our test of the best wireless headphones on the market for their active noise cancelation, a snugger fit than previous models and a battery life that lasts roughly four-and-a-half to five hours, you can’t go wrong with these little buds—especially at this Prime Day pricing.
3. Less than $20: This super popular wine opener
Whether you’re shopping for a gift for the wine lover in your life or you’re simply sick and tired of fighting with your Cabernet cork, this Oster cordless electric wine opener, which falls from $19.99 to $17.79, is the Prime Day deal for you. With claims to open your vino in seconds and a foil cutter to help remove seals, pouring yourself a nice glass of red or white has never been easier, according to its more than 16,300 reviews. Customers say this device is simple to use and works like a charm—as long as you follow the instructions. Wrote one happy buyer: “Best $17 I ever spent … after I read the manual!” It comes with a recharging base and works on up to 30 bottles on a single charge.
4. More than $50 off: This top-notch slow cooker
The season for hearty stews, chilis and soups is upon us, and to take full advantage of it, you’re going to need a great slow cooker on hand. Calphalon’s digital sauté slow cooker, which has fallen from $149.99 to $95.99 for Prime Day, is just the ticket for all three. While it’s not ideal for lasagna or baked goods due to its super deep bowl design, it was great for soups and stews, with a dial-and-lever system to control the time and functions that we deemed “a dream come true.” A few other added bonuses? Its nonstick inner pot, which proved to be a breeze to lift, its easy-to-use functionality and the programmable 15-minute increment feature that allows for more precise cooking.
5. $20 off: This top-rated chest freezer
Chest freezers have been tough to track down this year and this Midea MRC050S0AWW chest freezer is not only in stock—it’s on sale. Regularly $296.86, you can snag it for $277.32 right now. We haven’t yet tested this machine but if the glowing Amazon reviews are any indicator, it’s a top-notch buy: Shoppers say it’s the perfect size for a small family—not too big and not too small. Added one happy buyer: “[It] keeps everything frozen and fits perfect in a corner.”
