Amazon Prime Day 2021 is going to be here in no time--the sales bonanza is set for June 21 and 22, now roughly a week away, and will bring thousands of discounts for Prime members on video games, tech, and much, much more. As hype for Prime Day 2021 starts to build, Amazon has released a batch of early Prime Day deals. The early deals focus mainly on Amazon's own first-party gear like Fire TVs, Echo Dots, and Echo Buds. There are lots of great Amazon deals to be had ahead of Prime Day, and we're rounding them up here ahead of Prime Day 2021. Prime members can also take advantage of a free game offer via Prime Gaming and discounted subscriptions to services like Amazon Music Unlimited and Audible Premium Plus.

You'll want to be signed into your Prime account to take advantage of the Prime-exclusive deals below. For more great discounts, catch up on the best Prime Day TV deals, cell phone deals, monitor deals, PS5 deals, Xbox deals, and Nintendo Switch deals.
PC gamers can snag a free game for Origin right now via Prime Gaming, a service included for free with Amazon Prime. Battlefield 4 is up for grabs until June 21--you'll receive a code that can be redeemed on Origin (you must do so before July 21).
2019's Echo Show 5 has fallen to $50 in Amazon's early Prime Day deals, offering a compact screen for watching videos, following along to recipes, checking the news or weather, video calling, and more. Its smaller size also makes it ideal for a nightstand, and it features ambient sunrise lighting as well.
Luna, Amazon's cloud-based game streaming service, works with any standard Bluetooth-connected controller. But Amazon promises its own proprietary controller can reduce latency from 30 milliseconds down to 17. You can also use it to transfer between different devices. Luna uses a subscription model with different "channels" that offer various libraries of games.
Though Luna is still in early access, all Prime members will be able to sign up for Luna during Prime Day (June 21-22). A seven-day free trial is available. If you're planning to sign up, you'll probably want to take advantage of this controller deal.
Amazon Smart Plugs are down to 15 bucks each as an early Prime Day deal--these little smart plugs let you schedule lights, fans, and appliances to turn on and off automatically and let you control them remotely as well. This can be particularly useful if you want to turn on the lights while you're away to make it look like you're at home. And if you like to have a pot of coffee ready for you in the morning, you can schedule that to turn on automatically as well.
An alternative to some higher-priced in-ear headphones like Apple's AirPods, Amazon's Echo Buds connect with your phone for hands-free music playing. You can get up to 5 hours of playback per charge and up to 15 hours with the charging case. It's made to connect with Amazon Alexa, but it works with other services like Siri and Google Assistant.
Amazon's own fitness tracker includes some of the same information suite as similar trackers from Apple and Fitbit, like steps, heart rate, and sleep tracking. You can ask Alexa for a summary of factors like your health and sleep quality, and an optional membership gives you a broader range of workout programs and tools. That subscription is free for the first six months, then $4 per month after that.
Early Prime Day deals always include some cheap Fire TVs, and one of the best deals features this 50-inch Toshiba 4K TV (2020 model) that's on sale for just over $300. It comes with Fire TV built in and is an excellent option for streaming from Disney+, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and more.
Another early Prime Day deal, this 43-inch Insignia smart TV is $100 off exclusively for Prime members right now. It's really just a matter of what size TV you want when it comes to these Prime Day TV deals. The Insignia TV also comes with Fire TV built in with the ability to stream content from all the top services.
The smallest of the four TVs on sale ahead of Prime Day, this 24-inch Insignia HD Fire TV is on sale for just 100 bucks. This 720p TV is small enough that you could even use it as a second screen on your desk, or anywhere else you could use a small TV as you work.
The Echo Frames are essentially a way to wear a smart device all day. The frames are compatible with most prescription lenses, and they include Alexa connectivity and open-ear audio to play sound directly into your ears.
If you're looking to add some modern convenience features to your car, the Echo Auto is a hands-free smart assistant you can use while you're on the road, and it's on sale for its lowest price yet ahead of Prime Day. You can ask Alexa to play music or manage your shopping list, make calls, and more. It also pairs with your phone to make a hands-free display. Right now, you'll get a free six months of Amazon Music Unlimited with the Echo Auto as well.
Right now you can claim four free months of Amazon Music Unlimited if you've never been subscribed to it before, giving you access to over 70 million ad-free songs and podcast episodes. If you don't want to stay subscribed, be sure to cancel before the four months are up--it's $7.99/month afterward.
