Prime Day 2023 has officially been announced for July 11th and July 12th! There are hundreds of thousands of great deals planned for the big sale this year. But this is Amazon, so you’re obviously not going to have to wait for the sale to officially begin to find great Prime Day deals.

Amazon turned up the heat on its early Prime Day sales, offering great prices even earlier this year. This is our first look at Amazon’s official Prime Day deals list for 2023, and it’s a banger! Amazon’s official Prime Day page is packed full of info, but we have so much more to show you.

Our expert commerce team has rounded up some of the best Prime Day sales you can already shop right now. Just remember that you’ll need to be a Prime member to get these prices. The good news is that if you haven’t already joined Prime, you can get a 30-day Amazon Prime free trial if you hurry.

Even better than all that, there are offers right now that get you free money.

Free Amazon credit for Prime subscribers

Amazon Photos
Amazon Photos promo offers a $15 Amazon credit to Prime members.

Amazon has a special Amazon Photos promotion for Prime subscribers. All you need to do is back up your photos with the Amazon Photos service and you’ll get a $15 credit added to your account.

You can check out the promo page for more details. Needless to say, there are plenty of terms and conditions. Also of note, you’re not eligible for this deal if you’ve already taken advantage of a similar Amazon Photos promotion in the past.

Also, there’s another great deal that gets first-time reloaders a free $10 Amazon credit. Just add $100 or more to your account with Amazon Reload and you’re all set.

The only problem here is that not everyone can get this deal, even if you’re a Prime subscriber. Check out the details and see if you’re eligible right here.

Now that we’ve covered some of the best early Prime Day 2023 deals that are available now, let’s take a look at what’s coming during the main event.

On Wednesday, Amazon released a preview of the best Prime Day 2023 deals coming on July 11-12.

Amazon said that Prime Day will include millions of deals worldwide in 2023. Last year there were about 2 million deals available globally, so it seems like Prime Day 2023 will at least be on par with that.

Some of Amazon’s hottest Prime Day deals of the year are already available now, and you can see them all on Amazon’s early Prime Day deals page.

Examples include the Echo Dot 4 with a free smart LED bulb for $19.99, the Fire TV Stick Lite for $11.99, and the Echo Show 5 for $34.99 instead of $85.

The retailer also included a preview of specific deals that we can expect to see on July 11-12 during Prime Day.

Below, you’ll find an excerpt from Amazon’s press release.
