Echo Dot — $24.99 ($25 off)

This 4th Generation version of the infamous Alexa-driven smart speaker is available in Charcoal, Glacier White, and Twilight Blue. Star Wars fans may want to ante up for the special Mandalorian stand. Either way, it's a nice little voice-controllable speaker to stream music, podcasts and whatever miscellaneous information your inquiring brain desires to know in an instant.

Echo Auto — $14.99 ($35 off)

As one might guess from its name, this device adds Alexa's capabilities to your car. It connects through the Alexa app on your phone via Bluetooth for most cars, although some cars require a wired connection. Not only can this set-up help you listen to music and see what's playing, check the news and ask questions, but also set reminders, add to your to-do's and even pay for gas.

Ring Video Doorbell Wired bundle with Echo Show 5 — $64.99 ($74.99 off)

This package includes two products: Ring Video Doorbell Wired and Echo Show 5. The doorbell uses advanced motion detection and night vision, recognizes two-way talking and provides high-definition video...to what's essentially an Echo smart speaker device with a built-in video screen. They're the perfect pair for seeing who's at the door from wherever you are, but especially if you happen to be in the room with the Echo Show.

Membership (free for six months and then $4/month) includes all sorts of tools and programs to help you work out, meditate or even address your nutrition. And of course, through the Halo app, you can connect with Alexa to answer questions you have about your health stats.

Fire TV devices can help enhance TV content, provide audio and even add a home theater element. Amazon

eero Pro mesh WiFi system — $191 (40% off)

It makes sense that a primarily online retailer would have a vested interest in ensuring its customers have ready access to Wi-Fi. So it wasn't a big surprise a couple of years ago when Amazon bought eero, a pioneering company in mesh networking. Conveniently, their node devices speak to each other to provide optimal coverage and the very throughput on your network you need to stream and buy stuff. This second-generation system is available in a few configurations, depending on the floorplan you're trying to blanket with Wi-Fi.

Echo Buds — $79.99 ($40 off)

Naturally, these active noise canceling in-ear headphones offer connectivity through the Alexa app to stream music, podcasts and audio books. But they also support access to Siri and Google Assistant as well. Whether charged with the wired or optional wireless version of the charging case, the either Black or Glacier White buds are rated for 5 hours of playback just on their own, an extra 15 hours from the case, and 2 hours from just a 15-minute quick charge.

Echo Frames — $174.99 ($75 off)

These glasses frames—to which you can add prescription lenses—have built-in audio capabilities. The only visual component is whatever you see with your eyes. In other words, they don't sport a built-in heads-up display. But if you tend to wear glasses, they're a good earbud alternative. Whether you want to listen to music or podcasts—or control your smart home—wherever you are, this is a way to do it while leaving your ears open to be more cognizant of your surroundings.

In addition to its audio, video and Smart Home devices, Amazon still offers Kindles and tablets. Amazon

Prime Movies — Up to 50% off

Although the hardware deals tend to get lots of ink, Prime Day also provides bargains on a variety of content for avid entertainment consumers to enjoy. For instance, right now Prime members can rent movies such as Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (normally $3.99) for $1.99; buy Spider-Man: Far From Home (normally $13.99) for $8.99; or purchase the entire Harry Potter Collection (normally $69.99) for $54.99—although arguably a better Prime Day deal, for about half that, the entire 8-film series is available on Blu-ray for $27.99.

Prime Video Channels — 99¢/Month (Up to 2 Months)

Instead of $3.99 to $9.99, Amazon's offering Prime Day deals if members sign up for such popular channels at Showtime, Starz, PBS Kids, or Paramount+. Each initially only costs a buck a month, but (as is the rule) you need to be a Prime member to take advantage of it. And after the special 2-month preview period, it automatically goes back to the regular rate. Still, a good way to save a few shekels.

Prime Membership - Free for 30 Days

As previously mentioned, Prime Membership is what unlocks access to all these (and millions of other) Prime Day specials. So to encourage newbies to sign up, naturally there's a special on the membership itself: pay nothing for the first month, then it's $12.99 per month and you can cancel anytime. So even if you choose to ignore the scads of other deals on this consumer holiday, you can still save money right away and in the long run.
