Amazon's Prime Day kicks off in less than two days and there will a slew of deals to be had. Actually, just like last year, Prime Day will actually encompass two days of deals (the full 48 hours this time around); so maybe Amazon should think about renaming its shopping extravaganza.
With that being said, Prime Day deals are of course exclusive to members that pay $119 a year for the privilege. Those who aren't currently Prime members, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial to qualify for all of the promotions. As an added bonus, those who have an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card, you'll get 6 percent back on Prime Day instead of the usual 5 percent (this also applies to purchases made at Whole Foods).
As you might expect, Amazon is placing a big emphasis on its own-branded hardware, including its Fire TV streamers and Echo smart speakers. For example, the regular Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote will be discounted by $25, dropping to $14.99. Its Fire TV Stick 4K counterpart will be just $10 more. For those looking at the Echo Show, it is being discounted to only $159.99, while the standard Echo falls $50 to just $49.99.
If you are looking for an attractively-priced tablet, the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 will be on sale for $49.99 and $99.99 respectively. If you buy them in pairs, the prices fall to $79.98 and $179.98 respectively.
Of course, there are deals to be had on other Amazon hardware products (by way of acquisition) including a Ring Video Doorbell for $69.99 or the Blink XT2 2-Camera System for $99.99 (an $80 discount).
