Score great Amazon device deals — from the Kindle Scribe to the Echo Dot — before Prime Day

A bunch of Amazon devices are currently on sale, in preparation for the Prime Big Deal Days 2023. Here are our top picks:

Prime Day (which will run on Oct. 10 and Oct. 11 this fall) is the best time to invest in some very discounted Amazon products. As our reporter Haley Henschel mentioned in her Big Deal Days 2023 explainer, the event is basically “two days of sitewide doorbusters, with Amazon’s own devices and services likely getting the steepest price drops.” For this reason, if you’ve been eyeing that expensive Kindle Scribe for a while — or else want to elevate your smart home setup with a top-of-the-line Echo speaker — next week will be an awesome chance to do so.

However, it’s easy to get lost in the layers upon layers of Amazon devices. After all, the retailer doesn’t shy away from offering products in a wide range of categories, including smart TVs, routers, tablets, and so much more. Use this handy roundup to help you sort through the (happy) chaos and get your hands on Amazon’s best.

We’ll keep track of top deals on Amazon devices through the end of the Big Deal Days, so watch this space.

Note: All newly added deals are marked with a ?, while deals with a ? have dropped to an all-time low price. Amazon’s exclusive invite-only deals are marked with a ?. Deals with a strikeout were either sold out or expired at the time of writing.

Why we love it

It’s always a celebration when Amazon discounts its tech bundles, and this Echo Show 5 (3rd Gen) and Philips Hue Smart Color Bulb bundle is no exception. With the Echo Show 5, stream your fave fall flicks with ease, video call your loved ones, tune into all of your beloved podcasts, or control compatible smart home devices. The Philips Smart Bulb is just such a device — allowing you to voice-prompt Alexa to change the intensity of its light or color, with no further effort required. The bulb also comes with cool features like the ability to sync with music, so that you can turn your living room into an Ibiza club in no time. Buying this bundle at the current discount will save you $39 compared to buying the Show and the Smart Color Bulb separately.

Best Kindle deal

Amazon Kindle Scribe (16 GB)

$289.99 at Amazon (save $80)

Buy On Amazon↗

Why we love it

The Kindle Scribe is the most expensive Kindle model after the Kindle Oasis, but we still think it’s worth the investment (especially during the Prime Day 2 sale). It works like a book and notebook both; equipped with a digital pen, the Scribe allows you to annotate articles, write journal entries, doodle with various brush types, and create folders to organize your work. You can use the device to import and export docs seamlessly, which makes it a wonderful productivity tool for school and work. Bonus points: The Scribe provides weeks of battery life on a full charge, so you can take it everywhere, worry-free.

Best Fire TV deal

Amazon Fire TV 32-inch 2-Series HD smart TV

$109.99 at Amazon (save $90)

Buy On Amazon↗

Why we love it

This Amazon smart TV is bound to upgrade your streaming experience — what with its HD 720p resolution, immersive Dolby Digital Audio, and Alexa-powered Voice Remote. If you’re interested in all these features, want access to tons of channels/apps (plus a free 6-month subscription to MGM+), but, at the same time, don’t want to spend over $150 on a TV, consider this Amazon device a godsend. Last Prime Day (in July 2023), this 32-inch 2-Series HD smart TV retailed for $20 more than its current price. Who knows? Maybe that price tag will plummet even further once Prime Day 2 officially kicks off.
