Amazon’s Prime Day prices revealed!

Angela Lang/CNET

Prime Day technically starts Monday, but Amazon just cut the price on a huge swath of its own devices as of Sunday afternoon. We’ve consolidated the best deals available right now, such as the Echo Input for $15, as well as the announced sales that are scheduled to hit as of midnight PT. The good news: A few of these devices are hitting all-time lows, including the second-gen Echo for $50, second-gen Echo Show for $160 and Fire TV Stick for $15. The bad news: A few others merely match prices from last Black Friday, while others aren’t even on sale. (No discount on the sweet new Echo Show 5, which debuted last month at $90 and will apparently stay there for Prime Day? Only if you buy two, which gets you $30 off.)

Remember that if you already own an Alexa-capable device, you can already start asking “What are my deals?”

Note that Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. Also, CBS All Access and Showtime are divisions of CNET’s parent company, CBS.

Prime Day deals available now

This is the lowest price ever for the 2018 Echo Dot, down from $25 earlier.

This early deal is now live. The full-size Echo is 50 percent off. That’s a return to its best price ever.

Sarah Tew/CNET

Amazon’s Fire TV Recast is $100 off on Prime Day, starting at just $130.

Another deal exclusively for Prime subscribers, the Ring Video Doorbell Pro and Echo Dot bundle drops to just $169 when you add them to your shopping cart. Previously the Ring was on sale for $169 all by itself — the Dot just adds icing to the cake.

Tyler Lizenby/CNET

The second gen Echo Show refined the design of the first model and offers better sound quality and a 10-inch HD screen. It combines the functionality of a smart speaker like the Echo Dot with a touchscreen you can use for video calls and controlling your smart home with a tap. We like the $90 Echo Show 5 a little better, but $160 for the full-sized Show is a tempting offer. 

Chris Monroe/CNET

This is our favorite smart speaker for controlling your smart home. The Echo Plus has the same Alexa capabilities as the rest, it sounds better than other Amazon Echo speakers, and it has a built-in Zigbee hub so it can talk directly to small smart home sensors. With the Plus, you can do away with bulky third party hubs, so the $110 sale price is pretty appealing.

The original Ring doorbell is on sale on Prime Day too, in addition to the newer Pro model. If you don’t need a slimmer design and 1080p streaming, go with the older Ring instead of the Pro to save yourself some money. 

Prime Day Amazon Fire Tablet deals

Save $30 on the Fire HD 8 tablet, just $50, or get two for $80 — an $80 savings.

Save $50 on the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet, just $80, or get two for $140 — a $120 savings.

The All-New Amazon Fire 7 Tablet usually costs $50. During Prime Day it will be just $30. 

Save $40 on the all-new Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet, just $60, or get two for $100 — a $100 savings.

Save $50 on the Fire HD 10 tablet, just $100, or get two for $180 — a $120 savings.

Save $50 on the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition tablet, just $150, or get two for $280 — a $120 savings.

Prime Day Amazon Kindle deals

Save up to $50 on Kindle Paperwhite, plus get a $5 eBook credit and three months free Kindle Unlimited, starting at just $85.

David Carnoy/CNET

Save $30 on the all-new Kindle, plus get a $5 eBook credit and three months free Kindle Unlimited, just $60.


The Echo Dot Kids Edition will be on sale for $45. It’s similar to the regular Echo Dot, but has features and programming just for kids.

Here are all the deals coming Monday

Prime Day home security deals

Ry Crist/CNET

Ring’s simple, but reliable security system was already reasonably priced. The Prime Day sale makes it a great buy if you want a DIY system monitoring your home. 

Chris Monroe/CNET

Amazon has sales on all kinds of Ring products for Prime Day, which makes sense as Amazon owns the smart home brand. The outdoor Spotlight cam hangs on your porch and provides reliable lighting and monitoring for your yard. The Spotlight Cam is also easy to set up, making it one of our favorite outdoor cams. The $140 price makes it a steal. 

Chris Monroe/CNET

The Stick Up Cam doesn’t stand out from the crowd as well as the Spotlight cam. It’s an indoor cam with a wired and wireless version. It’s a solid performer, but lacks some of the features of similar security cams. Still, at a discount, it’s worth considering. 


The Blink XT2 is a weatherproof security camera with a battery that can supposedly last for two years. Getting a two-pack for $100 is a good deal. 

More Prime Day smart home deals

Josh Miller/CNET

Both the bundled system and Eero’s individual routers will be on sale on Monday. The mesh system in particular creates a seamless network capable of covering a large home. Our main issue with it is the price, which is dramatically less for Prime Day. If you want a mesh Wi-Fi system, this is a good time to grab one. 

You can also save $100 on an Eero router during Prime Day (pay just $99).

Amazon Smart Plug and Amazon Echo Combo

Save $55

Ben Fox Rubin/CNET

Amazon is introducing a new bundle here and we’ll add the link once it’s live. The simple smart plug lets you add voice controlled connectivity to dumb devices like lamps. Pairing it together with an Amazon Echo smart speaker makes for a compelling smart home starter kit. 

Chris Monroe/CNET

Our favorite smart thermostat has an Alexa speaker built-in and includes a temperature sensor so you can customize settings based on a specific room. The Ecobee SmartThermostat features better microphones and a sleeker finish than previous versions, and the sale brings the price into the range of less capable competition. 

Prime Day Amazon Fire TV deals

Sarah Tew/CNET

Save $50 on the Fire TV Cube during Prime Day. It costs just $70.

Sarah Tew/CNET

Stream your favorite shows with the Amazon Fire TV Stick and Alexa remote — it’s just $15 during Prime Day.

Sarah Tew/CNET

Spend just $10 more for the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K (usually $50). 

Sarah Tew/CNET

Amazon recently announced a slightly updated version of its flagship Kindle Oasis e-reader that’s due to ship on July 24. The new model has a color temperature adjustable light. But if you can live without that, you can save up to $80 during Prime Day on the Kindle Oasis 2017. Additionally, you get a $5 eBook credit and three months free Kindle Unlimited, starting at just $175.
