Here is a list of the best Alexa Prime Day Deals that are currently live. I’ll be updating this list throughout the day as deals expire and new deals go live. Included are all sorts of Alexa compatible gadgets like light bulbs, switches, plugs, cameras, locks, starter kits, hubs, security systems, games, and more. Read more ›
The SiliconDust HDHomeRun CONNECT DUO is on sale for $69.99 and the HDHomeRun CONNECT QUATRO is on sale for $99.99 at Best Buy. The former is $30 off its regular price, while the latter is $50 off. These are both the lowest prices that I’ve seen, but I don’t follow this product too closely, so it may have been cheaper in the past. HDHomeRun is a device that allows you to watch over-the-air channels through your Fire TV and other streaming devices. It’s essentially like a network connection for your HD antenna. You can use the official HDHomeRun app for Fire TV to view the content, or use a number of other supported apps, like the Channels app, MrMC, or Plex. The difference between the DUO and QUATRO is that the DUO has 2 tuners, while the QUATRO has, as you may have guessed, 4 tuners. The number of tuners determines how many channels you can watch or record simultaneously.
The NVIDIA Shield TV with Remote has gone on sale for $139 for Prime Day. At $40 off the regular price, this is the lowest price that the Shield TV has ever been. This is easily the best streaming box that runs the official Android TV operating system. It has a powerful CPU that can breeze through any task you throw at it and a GPU that is unrivaled by any other streaming device for great gaming capabilities. This discount is a Lightning Deal that has limited quantity and it will surely sell out, so be sure to get your order in quickly if you’re interested. This unit comes with a remote control, but if you also want a game controller, there is the Shield TV with Remote & Game Controller that is also on sale for $179.99.
The Eufy Genie Smart Speaker is on sale for $17.33 for Prime Day. This price is about $15 off the retail price. The lowest I’ve seen the Eufy Genie go for in the past is $19.99, so this is the new lowest price that it has been. You can read my review of the Eufy Genie, but it’s essentially an Echo Dot clone. It sounds slightly better than an Echo Dot, but is missing Alexa features like calling/messaging that are only found on Echo devices. It also does not have Bluetooth, so it can’t be paired with a phone. If you already have multiple Echo devices, you’ll probably be happier spending the extra money and getting an Amazon Echo Dot for $29.99 instead. But if you want to try out a smart speaker for the first time without spending too much, the Eufy Genie is a good choice.
The 50″ Toshiba Fire TV Edition television has Sold Out. Oddly, instead of being listed as unavailable, it has been removed entirely from the listing. At $110 off the regular price, the $289.99 price for the 50″ size was too good to pass up by many. The deal went live in the wee hours of yesterday morning and was available for just over 24 hours. Amazon put the 43″ Toshiba Fire TV Edition television on sale for $249.99 this morning, possibly in anticipation of the 50″ size selling out, and it’s still available for now.
Amazon is now bundling a free 6 month subscription of their music streaming service, Amazon Music Unlimited, with the purchase of most Echo devices. You have to be a new customer to Amazon Music Unlimited to receive the free subscription and it will automatically renew at $7.99 per month after the free 6 months are over if you do not cancel. To receive this deal, you must specifically purchase one of the following Echo device listings, which are listed at the same Prime Day sale price as their regular counterparts: Amazon Echo for $69.99, Echo Dot for $29.99, Echo Spot for $99.99, or Echo Show for $129.99. If you’ve already purchased the solo device today, there doesn’t seem to be a way to receive the free 6 month music subscription afterwards, so you’ll need to either chat with customer support or try to cancel your original order and re-purchase it using the above links.
The Show Mode Docks are back on sale at the same introductory prices that were offered during the pre-order period earlier in the month. The Show Mode Dock for Fire HD 8 is $34.99 and the Show Mode Dock for Fire HD 10 is $49.99. Both of those prices are $5 off the regular price. If you’re buying both the dock and the tablet, be sure to get either the Fire HD 8 + Dock bundle for $79.99 or the Fire HD 10 + Dock bundle for $144.99 instead of buying each item separately. The bundles will save you an additional $5. For more info, see my overview of Show Mode and my review of the Show Mode Dock.
Amazon currently has great deals on their various Echo models, but what makes those deals better is the ability to add a TP-Link Smart Plug Mini to any Echo purchase for just $10 more. The smart plug being offer currently costs $24.99 on its own. It has been as low as $19.99 in the past, so getting it for $10 is a great price. The smart plug allows you to control whatever you plug into it through an app and through Alexa. The bundle is available to purchase with the Amazon Echo for $79.99, Echo Dot for $39.99, Echo Spot for $109.99, and the Echo Show for $139.99. If you’ve already purchased an Echo but didn’t get the smart plug bundle, you may still have time to cancel the original order and place a new one.
The Motorola Moto G6 has just gone on sale for $259.99 for Prime Day. This is a new Prime Exclusive version of the Moto G6 that comes with 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM instead of the usual 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM found in the usual Moto G6 phone. The Moto G6 launched just over a month ago and is one of the hottest affordable phones out right now. It packs in a Snapdragon 450 1.8 GHz octa-core CPU, 12 MP + 5 MP dual rear cameras, 8 MP front camera with flash, 5.7″ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, 3,000 mAh battery, microSD card slot, and fingerprint sensor. The phone is unlocked and compatible with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon. Check out my roundup of unlocked phone deals that I’ll be updating throughout the day.
When Prime Day kicked off, the main deal for the 2nd-gen 2018 Toshiba Fire TV Edition televisions was the 50-inch size for $289.99. At $110 off the regular price, it was the deal to get since the other two sizes only dropped by $30. Now, Amazon has just reduced the 43-inch size by another $50, making the 43-inch Toshiba Fire TV Edition television on sale for $249.99. At $80 off the regular price of $329.99, this is the new lowest price the 43-inch size has ever been. It’s lower than even the 1st-gen 2017 Element Fire TV Edition televisions ever reached. The 55-inch size is still $449.99, which is just $30 off the regular price. During last year’s Prime Day, Amazon hardly reduced the price of the largest 1st-gen Fire TV Edition television, so they may be doing that again and focusing sales on the smaller sizes.
