Whether you’re deep into the smart-home lifestyle or you’ve been meaning forever to set up a hub and bring Alexa's voice assistance into your world, now is the time to take action. These early Prime Day deals are simply too good to miss.
From all-in-one Fire TV Edition TVs to speedy eero Wi-Fi mesh routers, Amazon's early Prime Day deals are just bonkers. We rounded up the five best early deals with savings upwards of 45 percent — we're talking about prices starting as low as $15.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? You might want to get on that, at least this month: You can sign up for a free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
You know the old saying: If something seems too good to be true...sometimes it's not! And this is one of those times. Amazon has one of its top-selling TVs, the Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV — Fire TV Edition, on sale for just $100 for Prime members only! That's right: a 24-inch smart high-definition television for $100.
At 24 inches, this is a great second set for any home, ideal for a bedroom, den, even a spacious kitchen. While its size is midrange, it's fully loaded: Instant access to Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, YouTube, Disney+, Prime Video and so much more will soon be yours. And Alexa is included in the remote, so voice-directed browsing will be a snap.
Shoppers are as shocked by the quality of this TV as we are by this incredible sale! “I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV,” wrote a delighted shopper. “As far as clarity goes, I believe 720p is plenty for this screen size...I have been very pleased with the Wi-Fi reception of the built-in Fire TV. It actually works a lot better than the USB plug in external fire sticks, for whatever reason.”
On sale for just $50 (was $90), the Echo Show 5 is the smaller, sleeker version of the 10-inch Echo Show. With a compact, crisp five-inch display, it's perfect for a nightstand or kitchen counter. Listen to podcasts, watch videos, catch the news, prepare that recipe you've been dying to try. The smart-home display, featuring everyone's BFF Alexa, can double as a digital alarm clock. Amazon has a wide range of personalized clock faces to choose from, so you can bring a bit of individuality to your device.
"This is the best alarm clock I've ever had," wrote a savvy five-star reviewer. "The clock face is very easy to read from anywhere in the room. The screen has no distortion or discoloration from any angle...Perfect for checking the time in the middle of the night."
On sale for $15 for Prime members only (was $25), the Amazon Smart Plug, which easily syncs with the aforementioned Echo Dot, is an ingenious doodad that fits between a power socket and an appliance like a coffee maker, TV or lamp and enables you to operate said device through a smartphone app or a smart-home hub.
The Amazon Smart Plug empowers you to take care of everyday tasks like turning off the lights without getting up from the couch, or effortlessly brewing java from your bed in the morning.
That from-a-distance convenience is a huge hit with, and huge help to, the more than 300,000 users who've sung its praises. "Got this smart plug so I can remotely turn appliances and lights on and off in an Alzheimer's patient's home," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "I can remotely make sure things are off [with] the Amazon Alexa app — super simple to use and really helps me out. Now I don't have to drive over there....Thank you!"
Why should you have to spend hundreds of dollars on a reliable security cam? Well, you shouldn't! Here's Exhibit A: This Blink Mini HD is on sale for just $20, or $15 off, for Prime members only at Amazon. It features Full HD live streaming and two-way audio, so you can talk to house guests via the Blink app. This smart-home security camera also detects motion — it'll start rolling whenever it senses activity in your home. It also comes with a 30-day free trial for Blink cloud storage.
"This is a great little camera monitor," noted a satisfied five-star reviewer. "It’s easy set up, easily managed with your smart phone, clear image quality with motion detection. Can be set up to arm and record at any time. I bought this to use in my master bedroom by my desk where I keep sensitive information."
Is your router not cutting it anymore? If it’s slow, laggy and doesn’t cover every room — especially if you live in a two-story house — it's time to let it go. Because now there’s a way to get a fast internet connection everywhere in your home without being forced to huddle in one room. Reader, meet the Amazon Eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi 6 router, a compact wireless router that gets the job done as seamlessly as possible, and at a price you won't believe. This early Prime Day deal makes it yours for just $83, or $46 off, for Prime members only at Amazon. That’s not just a low price — it's the all-time lowest price for this little guy.
Here’s how it works: Simply connect this Wi-Fi router to your modem and place it in an open space. Once synced with your internet provider (it’s compatible with most major services), the Eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi 6 router can cover up to 1,500 square feet with speeds up to 900 Mbps. Unlike a Wi-Fi extender, which sacrifices speed for coverage, this mesh router can handle both. Plus, one of these little guys can support up to 75 devices at the same time. No lag, hiccups or dropouts! And shoppers are just in love with it.
"This device is super easy to set up and lightning fast," raved a very happy Amazon shopper. "I was able to stream two 4K movies and three HD movies on five devices at once with no lag. Set everything up in less than 10 minutes..."
