Amazon’s Prime Day prices revealed!

Angela Lang/CNET

Amazon Prime Day starts tomorrow, but we have the full list (viapress release) of the Amazon and Alexa-powered devices that will be on sale — including a handful that are already available, like theEcho Input for $15.

The good news: A few of these devices are hitting all-time lows, including the 2nd-gen Echo for $50, 2nd-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 2, which gets you $30 off.)

According to Amazon, “select” device deals will hit the site today at noon PT. And if you already own an Alexa-capable device,you can already start asking “What are my deals?”

Here’s a roundup of the deals available right now, followed by the complete list of Amazon device deals for Prime Day. Full disclosure: That list is mostly taken directly from an Amazon PR email that expands on the aforementioned press release. We’ll be parsing these (and other) deals throughout the weekend to highlight the best ones once the sale starts on Monday, July 15 at 12:01 a.m. PT.

Prime Day deals available now

Yep, the third-gen Dot hasn’t been priced this low since November.

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.

Chris Monroe/CNET

Note that this sale is only for Amazon Prime members, with the discount applied at checkout. Right now, you can snag the Ring Video Doorbell Pro for the nice price of $170. The smart doorbell works with Alexa, and lets you check on your porch remotely with an app. You can even tell the delivery person to leave your package with yourAmazon Echo Show 5smart display.

Hold off on this one. The second gen Echo is great and $70 is a reasonable price, but it will drop to $50 on prime day. 

Here are all the deals coming Monday

Prime Day Amazon Echo smart speaker and smart display deals

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 $90Echo Show 5a 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.

Prime Day home security deals

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. 

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 nice 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.

Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote

Save $25

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

David Carnoy/CNET

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

Sarah Tew/CNET

But if you can live without that, you can save up to $80 during Prime Day on the Kindle Oasis 2017.
