TL;DR: As of Aug. 7, select Amazon devices and Amazon device bundles are on sale across the site.
Amazon’s annual Prime Day savings event will be happening sometime in October, or so we’ve heard through the grapevine. (Things are still up the air at this point — the same goes for Black Friday.) But get this: You can score some stellar savings on select Amazon devices right this very instant.
The retail giant randomly put a bunch of its devices on sale for as much as 38% off, including several smart speakers, home security accessories, and some bundles that include one of each. Click here to see everything that’s up for grabs, or simply keep scrolling to explore our absolute favorite deals.
Echo Show 5 — save 22% and get 3 months of FreeTime Unlimited for 99 cents
Amazon’s 5.5-inch smart display features a built-in Alexa virtual assistant, which means you can ask it questions (“Alexa, what’s the weather?”) and control it using just your voice (“Alexa, play folklore by Taylor Swift”).
This particular deal includes a $20 savings on the device itself plus three months of FreeTime Unlimited for a mere 99 cents, which gets you access to thousands of kid-friendly videos, audiobooks, and skills and enables parental content controls. (We could see it being a big help for families who are adapting to remote learning this fall.) A $98.96 value, you’ll pay just $70.98 altogether.
Ring Video Doorbell 3 — save 10% and get a free Echo Show 5
Released in April, Amazon’s all-new Ring Video Doorbell 3 offers dual-band WiFi connectivity, Alexa compatibility, and adjustable motion and privacy zones.
If you order one ASAP for $179.99 (a $20 savings), it’ll come with a free Echo Show 5 that’ll allow you to see a live view of your doorbell’s camera and chat with your visitors.
For $20 more, you can upgrade to the Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus, which comes with an exclusive new “Pre-Roll” feature that captures extra four seconds of footage before motion is even detected — that way, you can find out what happened before any action starts.
The doorbell itself (normally $229.99) and a free Echo Show 5 (an $89.99 value) are all yours for just $199.99.
Fire TV Stick 4K bundle with Echo Dot — save 35%
This $64.98 bundle includes two bestselling Amazon devices: the Fire TV Stick 4K, a powerful streaming media player, and the third-gen Echo Dot, a compact smart speaker. Connect them to one another and you’ll be able to control what’s playing on your TV from across the room using simple voice commands.
Both devices are valued at $49.99 apiece, which means you’ll be saving a solid $35 if you buy ’em together as part of this deal.
Echo Plus (certified refurbished) — save 38%
The second-gen Echo Plus from 2018 is a sleek little smart speaker with crisp Dolby sound that sports a built-in Zigbee hub for easy setup with other smart home devices. This particular unit is “certified refurbished,” which means it’s used but tested and guaranteed to work as good as new.
A $129.99 value, you can snag one for just $79.99 — a $50 savings.
