Amazon has revealed several upcoming Prime Day deals and among the news is that the 2nd-gen Fire TV Cube will be $79.99 next week. This will be the new lowest price that Amazon’s flagship Fire TV model has ever been. In the past, the Fire TV Cube 2 has only ever dropped down to $89.99, so this upcoming sale beats that by $10. We don’t yet know if any of the Fire TV Sticks will be on sale. Amazon typically reveals only a small portion of the sales ahead of time, which they’ve done again here. To see all the upcoming deals that we know about, which include 6 different Fire TV Edition television models, be sure to check out my post here. As I do every year, I’ll be here around the clock during Prime Day to post all the best deals as they go live, so be sure to check back and check back often. Prime Day sales will be going live at 12am PT / 3am ET on October 13.

Get this Echo Show 5 + Blink Mini Deal
Amazon is currently offering a bundle with the Echo Show 5 and Blink Mini security camera for just $49.99 as part of their Prime Day early bird deals. With a regular price of $124.98 for the pair, this is a great deal that saves you 60% off of the list price. This beats the previous best price for this bundle from last Prime Day by $15, making this the new lowest price that it has ever been. If there’s anything in your home you’d like to keep tabs on, like when a package arrives or how a pet is doing, this is a very inexpensive way to get everything you need. A handy feature is configuring Alexa to make an announcement whenever motion is detected on the Blink camera. Alternatively, for the same price, you can get the Echo Show 5 + Amazon Smart Plug.
Get these Fire TV Edition Deals
Among the numerous early bird Prime Day deals coming out today for Prime members are a couple of Toshiba Fire TV Edition television deals. First is the 2020 Toshiba 55in 4K Fire TV Edition TV on sale for $299.99, which is a new all time low price, beating out the last sale by $50. This normally $449.99 TV is, in my opinion, the best Fire TV Edition TV available because it’s among the few that supports Dolby Vision and offers DTS Virtual X audio processing. This TV comes with the latest Alexa voice remote, 2160p UHD resolution, Dolby Vision & HDR10 support, a built-in OTA tuner, 3 HDMI ports, 1 composite port, 1 USB port for external media, a headphone port, Ethernet, and 802.11ac WiFi. Also on sale is the 2020 Toshiba 32in 720p Fire TV Edition TV for $119.99. This is down from a regular price of $179.99 and is also the new lowest price it has ever been, but it beats the previous best price by just $10. This TV comes with the same new remote, 3 HDMI ports, and other features as the 55in, but is only 720p and doesn’t support Dolby Vision or HDR.
Get this Fire TV Edition Deal
The all-new 2020 Insignia 43in 4K Fire TV Edition television has just gone on sale for $199.99 as an early bird Prime Day deal for Prime members. This is the new lowest price that this TV, which normally sells for $299.99, has ever been. The previous best price was $219.99. This TV comes with the improved Alexa remote and was released earlier this year. Like all Fire TV Edition devices, it comes with the Fire TV interface built-in, so there is no need to connect a Fire TV or Fire TV Stick to it. This model features DTS Studio Sound, 2160p UHD resolution, HDR10 support, a built-in OTA tuner that integrates into the Fire TV’s channel guide, 3 HDMI inputs, 1 composite input, 1 USB port for external media, a headphone port, Ethernet, and 802.11ac WiFi.
Amazon has put several Prime Video Channels on sale as part of their Prime Day early bird deals. A dozen diferent channels are available for $0.99 per month for 2 months. The channels on sale are Epix, PBS Masterpiece, PBS Documentaries, Urban Movie Channel, UP Faith & Family, Lifetime Movie Club, Pantaya, Sundance Now, Motortrend, History Channel Vault, A&E Crime Central, and Movie Sphere. Each subscription unlocks a slew of content from Prime Video that can be watched through a Fire TV or Prime Video app. These subscriptions normally cost $3.99 to $6.99, depending on the channel. Prime Video Channel subscriptions can be canceled online in a single click at this page. If you’re worried about forgetting to cancel before the discount ends, you can always just cancel immediately after subscribing to get just 1 month for $0.99. You’ll still be able to access the content for an entire 30 days no matter when you cancel.
Get this Echo Auto Deal
Amazon has made several more Prime Day early bird deals available today and among them is the Echo Auto for just $19.99. This 60% discount off of the regular price of $49.99 is the new lowest price that the Echo Auto has ever been. As you’d expect, the Echo Auto brings Alexa capabilities to your car. The device pairs to your phone for its internet access and lets you make Alexa commands on the go. It works with your car’s speakers through either a Bluetooth connection or a wired 3.5mm aux audio jack. Amazon continues to add car-specific capabilities to Alexa, like paying for gas with Alexa, so it’s a good time to see what Alexa in a car has to offer at an all-time low price. As with all early bird Prime Day deals, don’t expect the price to drop any further when Prime Day arrives next week.
Get this Echo Show 5 Deal
The Echo Show 5 is on sale for $44.99, which is half-off of its regular price of $89.99. This deal beats out last year’s Prime Day and Black Friday price by $5, making it the new lowest price that the Echo Show 5 has ever been. Being a Prime Day early bird deal, this sale is only available to Prime members. The Echo Show 5 is Amazon’s smallest smart speaker with a screen. It’s particularly well-sized for use on a nightstand or on a desk. The 5.5-inch touchscreen lets you see and interact with Alexa responses. It has a front-facing camera, which can be closed with a physical shutter, for video calls through Alexa, Zoom, Skype, or Amazon Chime. a 3.5mm audio out jack lets you connect it to larger speakers if you want better sound than its pair of built-in speakers. The Echo Show 5 is available in either Charcoal (black) or Sandstone (white).
Get this Blink Mini Deal
The Blink Mini compact security camera is on sale for $24.99 as an early-bird deal for Prime Day. Being a Prime Day discount, this price is only availabel for Prime members. This is the new lowest price that this camera has ever been. Blink is owned by Amazon and is best known for their wireless battery operated cameras. The Blink Mini is their first wired camera and has been very well received. It features 1080p record, motion detection, and 2-way audio. You can use the mobile app, an Echo Show, or a Fire TV to watch the live feed of the camera at any time, but if you want the video saved you’ll need to either subscribe to the cloud plan, which starts at $3/month or $30/year, or get the optional Sync Module for local storage without a subscription.
Get this Echo Dot Deal
Amazon is offering a 2-pack of 3rd-gen Echo Dots for $39.98 for Prime members. Just add two Echo Dots of any color and use promocode DOTPRIME2PK at checkout to get this deal. This is a Prime Day 2020 early bird deal, so it’s very unlikely these Echo Dots will be any less when Prime Day rolls around on October 13th and 14th. These Echo Dots were $22 each last Prime Day, so this sale is $4 less than a pair has ever been in the past. Amazon just announced new spherical 4th-gen Echo Dots, but it’s not expected that they’ll be on sale during Prime Day because they don’t ship until after Prime Day. I can’t recall Amazon ever putting a pre-order item on sale during Prime Day.
