Prime Day sales tend to move fast — a little too fast. In fact, one of my biggest Prime Day pet peeves are deals that sell out within seconds. Amazon hopes to change that with a new breed of Prime Day deal called the invite-only deal.
To get these limited edition deals, you need to sign into your Prime account and request an invite to buy it. Amazon will then send you a link to buy it when the deal goes live on Prime Day (July 11). It may sound tedious, but this is Amazon's way of ensuring something doesn't sell out seconds after going live. It's worth noting that requesting an invite doesn't ensure you'll get that deal.
Currently, there are 10 invite-only deals. My favorite is the Amazon 43" Omni Series 4K Fire TV for $99. I've been covering Prime Day since the event's inception and I've never seen a 43-inch 4K TV sell for this cheap. It's easily one of the best TV deals of all time, particularly for anyone looking for a budget 4K TV. It's worth noting that while we liked this TV for casual gaming (thanks to its low lag time of 9.8 milliseconds), in our Amazon Fire TV Omni review we said it's not the best option out there if you're looking for a perfect TV. However, at $99 — it's still an epic deal if you need a secondary TV or just don't have a big budget to play with.
Within seconds of requesting an invite, I got an e-mail from Amazon confirming my request. The e-mail stated that if invited, I would receive an email with a unique link on Prime Day when the deal goes live. Here's a look at the other invite-only Prime Day deals now available.
Best invite-only Prime Day sales
Amazon 43" 4K Omni Fire TV: was $399 now $99 @ Amazon
Editor's Choice deal: The best invite-only deal drops the price of the Amazon 43-inch 4K Omni Fire TV to just $99. That's the cheapest 4K TV we've ever seen. The 43-inch Omni Fire TV is the latest TV (released March 22) in Amazon's TV lineup. This new smaller size brings HDR 10/HLG support to a smaller 4K screen for those who can't fit a 50-inch or larger TV into their living room. In our Amazon Fire TV Omni review, we said it's solid for gaming thanks to its low lag time, but you should only buy it when it's on sale, as there are better/cheaper options for your money. And at $99, this is an unbeatable deal.
Star Wars Darth Vader Stand for Echo Dot: was $39 now $29 @ Amazon
For the diehard Star Wars fans, this Echo Dot stand will make your Alexa speaker look like Darth Vader. It's compatible with the Echo Dot 4th and 5th generations. You can also opt for a Mandalorian or Stormtrooper stand for the same price.
PAIGE Women's Mayslie Jogger: 60% off @ Amazon
This invite-only Prime Day deal knocks 60% off the PAIGE Women's Mayslie Jogger. Unfortunately, it doesn't tell you what the final price will be. (Apparel pricing is usually based on size and styles). Likewise, you'll be able to take 67% off the PAIGE Men's Federal Jeans.
JBL Live 660NC: was $199 now $89 @ Amazon
These wireless noise-canceling headphones are one of the best cheap noise-canceling headphones we've tested. They provide great bass-forward sound, effective ANC, superior connectivity, and a battery life that can last up to 50 hours. When this deal goes live, it'll be the cheapest price ever.
Price check: $199 @ Best Buy | $199 @ Walmart
SodaStream E-TERRA: was $159 now $89 @ Amazon
The SodaStream E-TERRA lets you make sparkling water from the comforts of your home. Three preset levels let you control your carbonation level so your sparkling water is just how you want it. The E-TERRA includes a sparkling water maker, 60L CO2 cylinder, and a dishwasher-safe reusable carbonating bottle. Its previous all-time price low was $109.
FOREO Luna 3: was $219 now $109 @ Amazon
The FOREO Luna 3 is a 2-in-1 facial cleansing and firming brush that has won praise from the likes of Marie Claire, Allure, and Cosmo. It uses proprietary T-Sonic pulsations to remove dirt and makeup residue from underneath your pores. The pulsations are gentle and provide a soothing effect as the device glides across your face lifting excess dirt and oil. Note: This device has hit $109 in the past, but only on very rare occasions. Additionally, there is a newer Luna 4 available for $279.
Bulova Men's Marine Star Quartz Chronograph Watch: was $450 now $179 @ Amazon
This six-hand men's chronograph watch features a sporty nautical appeal that celebrates Bulova's Marine Star line. The stainless steel timepiece features silver and red accents, a date display, and signature tuning fork at 12 o'clock. This would be the first time the watch goes on sale at Amazon.

The Acer Swift X is a sleek laptop made for high performance. In our Acer Swift X review, we said it's designed to please someone who wants enough oomph to get them through the work day. This config features a 14-inch 1080p LCD, AMD Ryzen 7 5825U CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and an RTX 3050 Ti GPU. Its previous all-time price low as $749, making this a solid laptop deal for Prime Day.
Motorola Razr+: was $999 now $849 @ Amazon
Motorola's new foldable will be on sale come Prime Day for just $849. In our Motorola Razr+ review, we said it sets the standard for all other clamshell foldables coming out this year and even tops the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. We also loved its long battery life (10 hours and 9 minutes), which is better than that of the average smartphone. The Razr+ features a 6.9-inch OLED FHD+ 165Hz inner display, 3.6-inch OLED, 144Hz outer display, Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB storage. There's also a 12MP main (f/1.5), 13MP ultrawide (f/2,2), and 32MP (f/2.4) front camera.
