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.

Amazon has revealed that its big Prime Day sale will be in July this year. Prime Day has historically been in July every year since it debuted in 2015, but the pandemic pushed it to October in 2020. Last year Amazon kicked Prime Day off in June but now it is returning to its usual month of July this year. The exact dates for Prime Day 2022 have not yet been announced, but, whenever they are, you can surely expect to find the best deals on Amazon devices during the big sales event. I’ll be finding and posting all the best deals when it happens, as I do each year.
As has become customary after the big sale, Amazon released some figures about Prime Day purchases. The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K claimed the title as the most popular item purchased during Prime Day. During the last Prime Day in October of 2020, that title went to the Amazon Echo Dot. As for Echo devices, it seems like their sales figures may have dropped quite a bit compared to previous Prime Days. Amazon also said that more Toshiba and Insignia Fire TV televisions we purchased this Prime Day than the last one, which was already more than the one before that. Read more ›
