Stupid-hot deals on all of our favorite stuff.

Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale 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 speed-demon sneakers, bougie tech, and impeccable massage devices.

The Weirdest Stuff You Can Buy on Amazon

This year, we’ll be blessed with deals just a few months after the Amazon’s annual Prime Day with two full days of killer deals—October 11 and 12—but that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in pre-Prime Early Access Sale deals with an array of A+ products that are already marked to move. 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. 

Satisfyer Pro 2 Clitoral Stimulator

The Satisfyer Pro 2 is the top-selling vibrator we’ve featured many times over on Rec Room (including in this in-depth review), and for good reason: It’s truly the best bang for your buck when it comes to oral-sex-simulating clitoral-stimulation toys. Get off on non-contact pulsation and suction pressure for discreet solo play with 11 intensities to play around with, and right now, enjoy 24% off.

TORRAS Coolify Portable Air

Temperatures may be dropping outside, but that doesn’t mean that A/C still isn’t necessary (especially if you tend to run warm, like we do).

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 any Prime-adjacent sales events—is a top choice. Upgrade your binging experience with this TV’s 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 26% off

Apple AirPods

Sure, AirPods were easy to avoid at first—looking like an up-charged, easy-to-lose version of the Apple earphones that came pre-packaged with an iPhone (except, you know, without the wiring). That said, once you’ve actually tried a pair for a few days, it’s hard to go back to anything else. You really can’t go wrong with AirPods’ noise-cancellation technology and in-case, fast-charging abilities. For 43% off, grabbing a new (or extra—trust us, we understand if you’ve got a bad habit of dropping an AirPod into nearby sewer grate) pair looks even more inviting. Oh, and don’t sweat it if you’re not fully “bought in” to the Appleverse; if you don’t own an iPhone or MacBook, AirPods can also connect to Android devices and the Google Pixel.
