Back in 2015, Amazon has been making waves with its first annual Prime Day shopping event. “You can’t just dream up a shopping holiday!‘ people cried, and yet sales picked up steam, statistically surpassing Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday in a few years. It spurred competing sales and millions of Amazon Prime memberships. It’s happening again – somehow.

Deals on Amazon devices are a dime a dozen, but since Amazon recently introduced several new gadgets, we’ve been seeing discounts on older models. We’ve highlighted the best deals below, but you can check out all Amazon device discounts here.

Amazon Fire HD 10

This is a low priced match that we’ve only seen a couple of times. The Fire HD 10 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite tablet from Amazon. It’s best for light browsing, video watching, or gaming, but it’s powerful enough to handle some very light work tasks, especially when paired with a Bluetooth keyboard. There is no Google Play Store but there is a workaround to add it and access more apps. It’s hard to find another good tablet at such a low price. Read our guides to the best tablet and best Fire tablet to learn more.

This was $5 cheaper on Prime Day (the one in July) and it’s possible it will drop in price next week. The fourth-gen Echo Dot (8/10, WIRED Recommends) has been our favorite Alexa speaker for a while, but Amazon has announced a better-sounding fifth-gen model if you’d rather have the latest and greatest. This fourth generation model is still a great device. It’s small enough to fit in any room and the sound quality is decent despite its size. You can set alarms or timers, check the weather, listen to music or play games Skyrim only with your voice You can get the model with a built-in clock for $10 more.

The Amazon Echo Show 8 is our most popular Alexa-powered smart display, and that price brings it $5 cheaper than we saw last Prime Day – an all-time low. The 8-inch display size is almost universal, whether you’re following a recipe or checking the weather. There’s a built-in camera with automatic zoom and pan capabilities for video calls or conferences. Check out our guide to the best smart displays for more recommendations.

Amazon Echo Glow

This is the best price we’ve found for the Echo Glow. It’s a poor sunrise alarm but a decent night light. It’s aimed at kids, but can also work well in a guest room, especially given that Alexa speakers can also double as sound machines. To control the lamp, it must be paired with either an Echo device or the Alexa app.

Note that the coupon codes must be entered at checkout and they are only valid for Prime members. We’ve seen this drop to $35 before, but never as low as $25. The Echo Show 5 is too small for our liking, but it’s a good Alexa-enabled alternative to the Show 8 if you want a screen in an area with limited space.

Tech and Home deals

The Google Pixel 6A (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite Android phone and also earned our top pick for best cheap phone. This offer is the best discount we have ever seen. Even if it’s not on sale, the Pixel 6A represents incredible value with great performance, excellent cameras, impressive battery life and a beautiful display. If you’re looking for a new smartphone, it’s hard to find a better deal.

The TCL 6 Series (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is the best TV for most people. This is one of the best deals we’ve seen for the 55-inch size. The quantum dot panel means viewers experience vibrant colors, deep blacks and excellent contrast. This TV also has Roku built right in for easy streaming capabilities. If you don’t need the latest and greatest, the TCL 5-Series is almost as good as the 6-Series – we recommend it for newcomers to TV – and every size is on offer. Read more about it in our guide to the best TVs.

SteelSeries Prime Wireless

Our favorite gaming mouse is on sale! Technically made for e-sports games, the Prime is not overloaded with too many buttons. It’s snappy and responsive, with clicky buttons. The wireless range is impressive and reliable, and it moves smoothly on almost any surface.

We last saw such a deal last December. Now is a good time to jump in if you missed it then and are in the market, although chances are it’ll be available again for this price sometime in the future. This luxurious (and expensive) espresso machine has a built-in burr grinder and hot water spout. Simply load it up with beans and tap the digital display to start making drinks at home. There’s even a steam wand for simple lattes and cappuccinos. Our guides to the best espresso machines and the best latte makers have additional tips, including some that will be easy on the wallet.

Free weights are one of the best tools for working out at home, and a variety of weights of these AmazonBasics dumbbells are available at historically low prices. We haven’t tested these ourselves, but they have good customer reviews overall. Some reviews mention that the rubber has a bad odor on arrival, but a few days of ventilation shouldn’t fix that if it does occur. Note that these are sold individually so you’ll need to add two to your cart if you’re trying to get a pair.

Selling pages of competing retailers

Other stores have started offering competing deals that don’t require an Amazon Prime membership (and others likely will). Here is a list of merchants who may be participating in the promotion.
