Amazon loves to discount their popular devices even before the big Prime Day deals – which are coming soon.

If you can’t wait when Prime Day arrives or are not a prime member, there are some deals around already.

There will be plenty of Prime Day tech deals so you might want to hold out for the big sales if you are an Amazon Prime member.

One reason for Amazon’s huge success with its lines of tablets, smart devices, doorbells, lights and other gadgets is that they are, in generally, hugely affordable.

While there aren’t many deals left from the early summer sale, some key products are still cheaper than normal.

You can also pick up the rest of the range:

Both the 3rd- and 4th-generation Echo Dots make regular appearances in Amazon’s Alexa device sales.

Honestly, never pay full price for one – just wait patiently and you can save yourself £10, like right now.

The Echo Show 5 offers a screen-based Alexa experience

We’ve watched Amazon’s range of screen-based smart speakers climb down in price over the last couple of years – and for Prime Day, they’re starting to become seriously affordable.

Case in point: the huge 40% price drop on the 2021 Echo Show 5, which will do everything from video calls to streaming Netflix to acting as an intercom with a linked device like a Ring Video doorbell.

In fact, you can pick up this Ring Video Doorbell and Echo Show 5 bundle for 64% less (was £104.99, now £59.99).

We weren’t entirely sold on Amazon’s range of screen-based Echos when they were first launched a couple of years ago – but they’ve proved a vital addition to many people’s kitchen counters.

You can use them to stream the likes of Prime, Netflix and YouTube, but of course they’re excellent for Alexa-commanded voice calls – and of course you can hook them up with your security cameras.

In this bundle you can also pick up a Blink outdoor security camera (which naturally can be paired with the Show 5) – and they’ve been reduced by a superb 67%.
