Amazon already has quite the family of devices, with a huge range of Kindles, Fire Sticks, and Alexa speakers – and they’re all discounted on the last day of Amazon Prime Day 2020.
The internet giant recently held an Amazon launch event that announced new Alexa devices, clearly planning not to be outdone by the 2020 Apple Event which saw the release of the Apple Watch 6 and iPad Air 4.
It seems Amazon strategically launched their new products just in time to release new Amazon Prime Day deals and ahead of the Black Friday shopping event. Amazon is always pushing their devices with often generous discounts on Prime Day – here are the very best deals that we’ve found.
If you’re interested in a deal, you’ll need to move quickly. Already we’ve seen the Amazon Fire 4K Stick and Nintendo Switch bundles sell out in a matter of hours. There are also lots of great Prime Day laptop deals which are being snapped up and we’ve rounded up all the best Amazon Prime Day deals across a range of products so you can catch the best bargains before they disappear.
Big sellers so far within Amazon’s own devices include the Echo Dot costing £18.99, the Kindle Paperwhite at £79.99 and Fire HD 8 Tablet now half price at £44.99. The Echo Show 5 is also now at its lowest ever price on sale for £39.99.
To join the service and grab some bargains on sale day, here is where you can sign up for Amazon Prime and get a 30-day free trial.

One of Amazon’s most iconic and best-selling devices, the Alexa-powered Echo speakers has revolutionised music playback and kick-started the virtual assistant market.

Ahead of the official start date, Amazon released a whole list of Prime Day early access deals across its own devices.

Who is it for? If you want affordable, small and easy to use, this is for you. You get all the Alexa commands, turning on your home gadgets to answering questions with this compact device. You can also play music, but the sound quality isn’t as good as some of the other devices.

Bear in mind that this new model isn’t released until 22nd October – so any Prime Day deal would be on the redesign.
Echo pre-order prices:
Echo (4th gen)
Joining the Dot in the next generation is the standard Echo. It may look just like the Echo Dot from the outside – but this improved model offers a 3.0-inch woofer, dual-firing tweeters, Dolby audio, and a built-in smart home hub. Again the Echo won’t be released until after Prime Day – so be prepared to wait if this virtual assistant appears as a deal.

Echo Show 5
Best deal: Amazon Echo Show 5 was £79.99, now £39.99

Who is it for? If you want to dip your toe in the smart home market, but want something more than the standard Echo Dot then this might be for you. With a display, you can read the weather as well as hear it, but it’s not so big that it takes up too much space. You can also use this for video calls and the sound isn’t too bad on it either.
