Amazon Prime Day isn't till 21-22 June, but the online giant has just dropped a ton of early deals. From today, Prime members will be able to save up to 70% off Echo devices and shop some awesome 2-for-1 offers.
Want Alexa with audio and video? Try the five-star Echo Show 5 (2019) smart display. It's usually $80 but has just sunk to $45 (opens in new tab) in the sale. That's a sweet 44% saving on a nifty box of tricks with a 5-inch touchscreen.
If you're on the lookout for a cheap pair of true wireless earbuds, the Echo Buds (2nd Gen) have gone from $120 to $80 (opens in new tab). We haven't had the pleasure of testing this particular model, but at eighty bucks, they could be worth investigating. Again, the deal is for Prime members only.
You can score even bigger savings with Amazon's early 2-for-1 deals. Buy an Echo Dot (4th Gen) smart speaker for $50 and Prime members get a second free (opens in new tab) with the code PDLUDOT. These five-star spheres are hugely popular, and with good reason. This could well be the best early Prime Day deal we've seen.
Non-Prime members can save too, though. There's currently $40 off when you buy two Echo Dots and use the code PDDOT2PK.
Amazon Echo Show 5 smart display
$90 $50 (SAVE 44%) (opens in new tab)
Want a five-star Alexa smart speaker with the added bonus of a video screen? Of course you do. You can save $40 on the new Echo Show 5 as part of the early Prime Day deals.
2-for-1 Echo Dot (4th Gen)
$100 $50 (SAVE $50) (opens in new tab)
Small but mighty, the latest Echo Dot (2020) is an easy, and excellent, way to get your smart home up and running. Get two for the price of one with the code PDLUDOT.
The full-blown Echo (4th Gen), which we praised for its "weighty sound" also gets a bulk discount. Normally $100 each, they're already down to $75 each. Buy two, however, and you'll pay just $120 (opens in new tab) when you use the code ECHOPRIME.
Last but not least, there's $40 off Amazon's Fire TV Gaming Bundle (opens in new tab). This Prime Day deal gets you a Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote and Luna Controller (for Amazon's new cloud gaming service) for just $74. The Luna Controller normally costs $70 (opens in new tab) on its own, so you're effectively getting a five-star Fire TV Stick for $4! Tempting.
Amazon says this year's two-day Prime Day sale will feature "more than 2 million deals globally – the most deals ever offered in the history of the shopping extravaganza."
And if the early-release Prime day deals – including up to 40% off Fire TVs – are anything to go by, we're in for some unmissable savings.
