Update: Prime Day has passed and these deals are no longer valid.

The wait is over. Prime Day is here. The big 30-hour event starts tonight at 9 p.m. We will be live blogging all the deals when the event officially starts. But we know with just how big Prime Day is and how much information will be out there, you're looking for any tidbit of info about what's really going to be on sale. While we can't share absolutely everything we know just yet, we can definitely give you a heads up on some of the great deals you can expect to see.

We've actually been covering a lot of pre-Prime Day deals for a while now. Check out our Prime Day tag to see some of those, including four months Amazon Music Unlimited for $1.

Try out 7-days of PureVPN for just $1 right now

Also be sure to check out some of the individual Prime Day pages for things you might be interested in. Amazon has set up a Prime Day launch page, a page just for TV deals, and a page for voice shopping through Alexa-enabled devices.

Here's a breakdown of the some of the best deals we've seen so far:

  • Amazon Echo down to $90 (from $180)

    • This is a pretty great deal since previous best deals were closer to $130 or so
  • Echo Dot down to $35 (from $50)

    • The refurb version dropped to $30 recently but this is the best price ever on a new version
  • Kindle Paperwhite for $90 (from $120)

    • This is standard fair for the Paperwhite, a deal we've seen many times, but it's still a good price
  • August Smart Lock for $50 off

    • The best price we've ever seen on this smart lock is $170. This deal should bring it down to $150, and that'd be a great buy at that price
  • Element 55-inch 4K Ultra HD TV - Amazon Fire TV for $400 (from $650)

    • This thing just came out in May. It has never dropped in price. This deal won't last two seconds, so keep an eye on it.
  • Willow and Everett Salt and Pepper Grinder Set for 25% off

    • These are currently $22, if the 25% off starts with that price they'll be $16.50 with this deal. That'd be the lowest price in more than a year. Definitely a good deal.
  • iBaby Monitor M6S 1080p Full HD Wi-Fi Smart Digital Baby Monitor

    • This baby monitor is supposed to be 30% off. That would drop it to around $121, and it has only dropped below $130 once before.

And here are just a few more deals:
