As announced last week, Amazon has kicked off Early Prime Day Deals today with nearly all Fire TV Smart TVs being discounted at fantastic prices. Don’t let these being “early” deals turn you off because these are legitimately great prices with most of these TV prices being lower than they ever have been in the past. Highlights include the 43in Pioneer 4K for $199.99, which is the cheapest a Fire TV Smart TV with Dolby Vision has ever been, the 55in Amazon 4K Omni Fire TV Smart TV for $299.99, which is a full $70 less than it has ever been in the past, and the 75in Insignia 4K Fire TV for $599.99, which is the first time a 75 inch Fire TV has dropped below $600. Here is the full list of Fire TV Smart TV deals that are now live, with each deal compared to its lowest previous price. Read more ›
A new Early Prime Day Deal going live this morning is the Blink Video Doorbell for $34.99. That’s 30% off its regular price of $49.99 and this sale matches the lowest price this camera has ever been in the past. This deal is just for the doorbell itself, which means you’ll only be able to view the live camera feed when the doorbell is pressed. If you want to view live anytime, you’ll need to buy it bundled with a Sync Module for $50.98, which is 40$ off the regular price of $84.98 and is also the lowest price the bundle has ever been. Lastly, it’s worth noting that the Blink Mini cameras can be configured to act as a chime when the Blink Video Doorbell is pressed. Otherwise, you’ll need to rely on wiring your regular house chime into the Blink Doorbell or your phone for chime notifications.
The Early Prime Day Deals continue to trickle out of Amazon and today is a deal on Blink Mini camera packs. The Blink Mini 2-Pack is $29.99 for Priem members, which is 54% off its regular price of $64.99. That’s $5 less than it has ever been in the past. Similarly, the Blink Mini 3-Pack is $44.99, which is 47% off its regular price of $84.99. That too is $5 less than it has ever been in the past. Regardless of which pack you get, you’re paying $15 per camera. The lowest price a single Blink Mini camera has ever been is $19.99, so this is a pretty great deal if you’re looking to buy more than one. The cameras are available in either White or Black.

On sale as an Early Prime Day Deal is the Ring Floodlight Cam Plus for $149.99, which is 25% off the regular price of $199.99. This was $10 cheaper during Black Friday last year, but is likely as low as it will get for Prime Day. It comes in either White or Black and fetures a 1080p security camera with 140 degree field of view. This “Plus” version replaced the original Ring Floodlight last year by upping the floodlight brightness from 1,800 lumens on the original to 2,000 lumens on this newer Plus model and the lights on the new model can now be dimmed. It also has a 105db siren built-in and supports 2.4GHz 802.11n WiFi. This is the hard-wired version, but if you have an outdoor plug near your mounting location, you can instead get the Plug-in version for $20 more to simplify installation.
Amazon is continuing to trickle out Early Prime Day Deals as we get closer to the main sales event in just over a week. A new deal that went live this morning is the 50-inch Amazon 4-Series 4K Fire TV Smart TV for $259.99, which is 45% off the regular price of $469.99. The lowest price this TV has ever been in the past is $299.99, so this deal is $40 lower than that and a new all-time low price. This is part of Amazon’s own brand of smart TVs which were released late last year and are very likely manufactured by TCL. This is a 4K 2160p TV with support for HDR10, HLG, and AV1 decoding. It’s powered by the same MediaTek MT9020 (MTK T31) quad-core 1.5 GHz CPU and Mali-G52 MP1 504 MHz GPU as nearly every Fire TV Smart TV. It has 2GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. There are 4 HDMI ports, of which one is eARC capable, and it has 802.11ac WiFi, Ethernet, Bluetooth, optical audio out, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB 2.0 port. It also supports Apple AirPlay and Miracast for mobile casting and runs Fire OS 7. A good alternative to this TV is the 50-inch Pioneer 4K Fire TV on sale for $249.99, which is probably a cheaper quality TV overall but it has identical specs with the addition of Dolby Vision HDR support. See all the live Fire TV Smart TV deals here which I update daily.
One of the new early Prime Day deals starting today is the Amazon Halo View for $44.99, which is 44% off the regular price of $79.99. This deal is the new lowest price the Halo View has ever been and beats out its Black Friday price by $5. This is Amazon’s second fitness tracker and, by far, its more popular option since the original Amazon Halo didn’t have a screen like this one does. It can monitor the usual assortment of biometric data, including heart rate, blood oxygen level, and temperature. It can also do sleep tracking if worn at night and, of course, step counting. When paired to a phone, it can also silently alert you of notifications by way of its haptic feedback motor. It’s available with a black, pink, or green band, but there are also dozens of different accessory bands in various colors and materials.
Amazon has trickled out a few new Early Prime Day Deals today, including the Ring Video Doorbell for $74.99. With a regular price of $99.99, this deal, available for Prime members only, saves you 25% off the regular price. This sale is the new lowest price that this doorbell has ever been, beating out the previous low during Back Friday 2021 by $5. This is the 2nd-generation of Ring’s entry-level doorbell with an improved resolution of 1080p, which is up from 720p on the previous model.
If you head over to Amazon’s Prime Day deals page and scroll through the “Deals on Amazon Devices” section, you’ll notice that all Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Cube, and Fire TV Recast models are listed as on sale. Despite what Amazon, and many news sites, want you to think, these are not Prime Day deals. These current discounts are just an extension of the Father’s Day sale that started in mid-June and never ended. While Amazon hasn’t revealed Prime Day prices for Fire TV devices, it’s safe to assume when they actually do go on sale for Prime Day, they will be less than they are now, so you’re better off waiting. Despite early Prime Day deals starting on June 21, actual Prime Day is officially on July 12 and I expect Fire TVs to go live with their actual Prime Day discounts a day or two before that. The current deals on Fire TV Smart TVs, however, are legitimate Prime Day prices that likely won’t change between now and mid-July.
In addition to a slew of Fire TV Smart TVs going on sale as Early Prime Day Deals, Amazon has also put the Luna Controller on sale for $39.99. At 43% off its regular price of $69.99, this is the new lowest price that this controller has ever been. It beats out its previous best price, which was $49.99 during Black Friday, by a significant amount. Even if you have zero interest in ever subscribing to Luna Cloud Gaming, you should seriously consider this deal. For starters, if you like to game and are a Prime member, then picking up this controller gives you the best way to play all the free monthly Luna games that Prime members get access to each month. Paying just $39.99 to have an ongoing great experience for those free games is worth it in my book. Apart from Luna, this is just generally a great controller and easily the best one for Fire TV gaming of any kind. Yes, it connects to Luna directly over WiFi for the lowest latency possible, but it also connects to Fire TVs, Android phones/tablets, and Windows PCs over Bluetooth for non-Luna gaming. It can also connect over its USB-C port if you prefer to go wired, which comes with the advantage of not needing batteries since it can be powered over the USB connection. I’m just a big fan of this controller in general, so it’s great to see it finally drop to a reasonable price. There’s also a Phone Clip for $12.99, if you’re interested, that can attach a phone to the controller, but I personally never use mine because I don’t like the extra weight hanging off of the controller and can usually find a place to prop up the phone separately when needed.
