The Prime Day sale is awash with plenty of pricey product, from 4K TVs and projectors to premium headphones and serious wireless speakers. But if you're nearly all spent out – and at this late stage of the Prime Day game, we don't blame you – and have just a little bit of cash still to splash, we've found some excellent Prime Day deals under $50.

From heavily discounted AirPods rivals to well reduced Amazon Echo devices, here are the best cheap Prime Day deals still available...

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) + 6 months' music $49.99 $18.99 (opens in new tab)
Amazon's little hockey puck-shaped smart speaker is its best selling Echo device – one listen and you'll see why. It's small enough to easily move between rooms, and the unobtrusive design will suit any decor. The sound isn't half bad for the size, either. Plus six months' Amazon Music Unlimited, too.
