The Best Video Game Deals From Amazon Prime Day

If you haven't yet purchased any of Amazon's Echo products with Alexa support, or even if you're just thinking about scattering a few additional devices throughout your home, this Prime Day deal will be right up your alley.

And if you want a bit more "oomph" than the little speaker can provide - probably for music rather than when you ask Alexa to give you the weather forecast - you can connect it to one of your other speakers via Bluetooth or 3.5mm audio jack.

Amazon Prime Day starts at midnight on Sunday and the first Prime Day deals are now live. And clearly, they're celebrating hard this year, as the price of the Amazon Fire TV stick has already been slashed by a huge 50 per cent BEFORE the day.

One can also get access to the Prime Day sale by signing up for a free 30 days trial (only for new users). It comes with the Alexa voice remote, and makes a really affordable way to bring streaming smarts to a TV that might not have it. The most significant difference between the Dot and the Echo is the size and price. The Fire TV Stick 4K also has an updated quad-core processor so it will have noticeably faster and smoother performance when compared to older Fire TV devices.

The Echo and Echo Dot have both been dropped to a lower cost with the bigger device now £59.99 and the smaller Dot now £24.99. To kick things off Amazon has discounted the best-selling Echo Dot smart speaker down to $22.

Is there a monthly fee for an Echo Dot? You can also save $40 on a bundle that includes an Echo Plus and a Philips Hue White smart bulb.

Sunny and dry forecast this weekend
The heat begins to build towards the middle and end of the week with highs jumping into the upper 90s to near 100 degrees. Thursday: Sunny at the beginning of the day, with temperatures reaching a high near 85 degrees.

The bundling continues with a notable deal on the newest Kindle e-reader.

Once you tap the three horizontal lines at the top-left corner of the app, you go to your account's main menu.

Amazon Prime Day is (nearly) hereeeee!

These are good discounts and more will be revealed in the coming hours.

At Hindustan Times, we help you stay up-to-date with latest trends and products.
