Amazon finally announced that the annual Prime Day sale will take place in July 12-13 this year. While the exact deals are still unknown, people are already making shopping plans for the big day.

Sure, it’s definitely a good idea to hold out on some items to see if prices drop on Prime Day, but it’s actually smarter to buy others right now while they’re already on sale. Why? Because the deals are already so good that there’s a strong chance the Prime Day prices won’t be much lower.

If you don’t want to risk an item you’re eyeing selling out, or you’d just like to have it sooner rather than later, you can go ahead and grab the nine items below without worrying too much that you’re paying more than you would on Prime Day. These markdowns are as low as we’ve seen on many of these items, so you can shop with confidence that you’re getting a really epic deal.
