Prime Day technically starts tomorrow, but the deals are already flowing thick and fast, especially on Amazon’s own suite of devices such as the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick, Ring video doorbells and more. Amazon devices are always a hit among our CNET readers during Prime Day. Shoppers especially enjoy taking advantage of the bundles, where you can score a speaker or display packaged with a free accessory like a smart bulb or smart plug. Not only do you get additional savings, but it can make it even easier to smarten up your home.
To help you make the most of these offers, we’ve rounded up the best Amazon device deals you won’t want to miss. We’ll update this list when we spot something new or when older deals expire, so keep checking back for the latest. Some of these deals sell out quickly, so you’ll want to act fast and get them before they’re gone.
Best early Prime Day deals on Amazon devices and services
This bundle, which includes the latest Echo Dot and a free Sengled smart bulb, was a hot item during Prime Day last year — in fact, it was the most popular deal among our CNET readers. This year the price has ticked up just a few dollars to $23, but you now get the fifth-gen Echo Dot, which offers more functionality than ever before. It’s a great deal and one that sells out quickly. Grab it while you can.
Amazon’s top-of-the-line Fire TV sets are seeing steep savings, with as much as 25% off. Most sizes are down to all-time lows right now, making it the perfect time to upgrade your viewing experience.
The newest Echo Dot with Clock offers all of the features of the standard Echo Dot that we all know and love, but it comes with a few more tricks — namely, the ability to display upcoming calendar events, artists and song titles during music playback, or to show weather info with icons whenever you ask Alexa for the day’s forecast.
These new 2023 Echo Buds are already a solid value at $50, and right now you can snag them for the all-time low price of $35. They feature multipoint pairing, a 20-hour battery life and hands-free Alexa access. And if you want active noise cancellation, the second-gen Echo Buds are on sale right now as well.
