Stupid-hot deals on all of our favorite stuff.

Amazon’s annual Prime Day is right around the corner—the question is, are you ready??? The mega sales event has a chokehold on shoppers every year with its jaw-dropping discounts across the kitchen, home, tech, and apparel categories, resulting in low-as-you’ll-see-them prices on laptops, furniture, and more. We’re talking about viral kitchen appliances, bougie tech, and impeccable massage devices.

The Weirdest Stuff You Can Buy on Amazon

This year, we’ll be blessed with two full days of killer deals—July 12 and 13—but that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in pre-Prime-Day deals with the array of A+ products that are already on sale. We found some absolute bangers to get the party started, because it’s never too early to save some dough. Make a snack, blast some 80s bops, and let's fill up those virtual shopping carts.

Get off on non-contact pulsation and suction pressure for discreet solo play with 11 intensities to play around with, and right now, enjoy 20% off.

Honeydew Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillow 

Side sleepers, gather round. FYI, this pillow not only offers the crazy-good neck support you didn’t know you needed, but it cured our staffer’s problem with waking up in the middle of the night sweating and having an existential crisis. Plus, we want to slumber on anything “scrumptious” that resembles a huge marshmallow. This pillow has cooling copper gel and is filled with memory foam, and is ready to upgrade your sleep experience for $99.99. It’s a great alternative for another  bedding favorite that we hope will hit the sale rack this Prime Day—the Casper Foam Pillow with Snow Technology—and it’s $40 cheaper.

DASH Rapid Egg Cooker

Want to know what’s better than a bacon-egg-and-cheese when you’re hungover? An egg cooker that does all the work for you. This TikTok-famous egg-cooking device by Dash is capable of hard- and soft-boiling, scrambling, poaching, and making omelets, and right now the already affordable appliance is marked down an extra 6% (and we’ll be for sure keeping an eye on any additional price drops for Prime Day).

Ninja Professional Blender 

We love cooling off with smoothies, but hate spending our paychecks on massively overpriced smoothies from the juice bar. This highly rated blender from Ninja, known for its powerful blending powers, can fit 72 ounces worth of liquids, blast ice into a snowy texture, and create delectable dips, soups, sauces, and, of course, smoothies that you would have paid $14 for at Equinox. Plus, it’s dishwasher-safe and has a wildly good 4.7-out-of-5-star rating from nearly 40,000 reviews—and it’s already on sale for 30% off

Adjustable Standing Desk

Your work-from-home setup deserves to be state-of-the-art. Step one is to have a desk that you actually want to sit at—or stand at, and finding an adjustable standing height desk that isn’t clunky can be tough—but we love this one that gives you the best of both worlds with its height-adjusting motor and enough room for two monitors, for 29% off.

Amazon Fire 4K 50” TV

Popping a squat on the couch and flipping on trashy reality television (Love Island, whisk us away) will always be one of our favorite hobbies when it comes to de-stressing, managing hangovers, or just indulging in some good old-fashioned escapism. A smart TV makes it way easier to flip between your favorite garbage programming, which is why Amazon’s Fire 4K TV—sure to be marked down heavily for Prime Day—is a top choice. It will heavily upgrade your binging experience with its 4K Ultra HD screen that supports HDR 10, HLG, and Dolby Digital Plus sound, all of which which delivers a clearer, more vibrant picture with brighter colors and enhanced sound—and you can grab it for 45% off

Apple AirPods Pro

Ah AirPods Pro, the earbuds we all resisted for looking kinda weird and easy-to-lose, but have now come full circle on and can’t live without. You really can’t go wrong with their noise-cancellation technology, water-resistance, and in-case, fast-charging abilities. And for 20%, grabbing a new (or extra) pair looks even more inviting. Plus, if you don’t own an iPhone or MacBook, they also connect to Android devices and the Google Pixel.
