On Monday,. The annual (but long-delayed) event will take place Oct. 13 and 14 — but the megaretailer isn’t wasting any time: , with more to come between now and the big days. Note that you must be an Amazon Prime subscriber to take advantage of these (and most other) Prime Day deals.

That’s basically like buying one and getting one free, because right now a single Dot is selling for $39.99. This deal is for the third-generation models.
More interested in the brand-new Echo Dot with Clock that Amazon announced just last week? There’s already a deal to be had there, too: It currently sells for $60, but you can save $20 on a Dot with Clock two-pack with promo code DOT2PACK. (That same code will save you $20 on a pair of new no-clock Echo Dots as well.)
Cut the cord! This deal ties the lowest price on record. In fact, it hasn’t been that low since around the holidays last year. For $130 you’re getting the two-tuner, 500GB model. If you want the four-tuner, 1TB version, it’ll cost you just $50 more.
Another “lowest price ever” deal, the Insignia is a current-generation 4K UHD TV (it was released this year) built around Amazon’s Fire TV interface. That means you get all the compatible apps and streaming services, plus an Alexa-powered voice remote. There are three HDMI inputs as well, the better to accommodate your game consoles and whatnot.
Another interesting early deal: You canwhen you spend at least $10 at a select US-based small business. The above link will take you to page where you can browse by product category and seller region; be sure to look for the “small business” banner so you know the product qualifies for the promotion.
