Amazon Prime Day 2019: Last chance for bargains on Fire TV, Kindles, and Amazon Echo – CNET
Day 2 of Prime Day is in its final hours:. Amazon's immense shopping event began yesterday and the deals are still rolling until midnight PT of July 16 (3 a.m. ET). If you're in the market for an Amazon device — a Kindle, a Fire TV streamer, an Echo speaker, a Blink security camera, a Fire tablet or pretty much anything else the megaretailer makes — it's pretty much all on sale. After that, you may not see some of these prices again until November. So if you're an Alexa household, this is a great time to buy.
A few of these have already hit all-time lows, including the all-new Echo Show 5 for $50 and a Fire TV Stick for $15. And the sales aren't just on gear, either — you can get a three-month Kindle Unlimited subscription for free if you're a Prime subscriber. (Normally the trial is just one month.) And while the current-gen Echo's $22 price has never been lower, Amazon is also tossing it in at no extra charge with the AmazonBasics Microwave and Ring Video Doorbell Pro, among other bundles. (See below.)

Prime Day deals on Amazon devices
This is our favorite smart display with Alexa. The Echo Show 5 is pretty new, so it's a surprise to see it on sale already, but this deal is awesome. The Show 5 has a 5.5-inch touchscreen. You can talk to Alexa and it can wake you up with a nifty sunrise animation.

Note that at least one color has sold out, but the heather gray and sandstone models are still available.
Amazon's Fire TV Recast is $100 off on Prime Day, starting at just $130.
The second gen Echo Show refined the design of the first model and offers better sound quality and a 10-inch HD screen. It combines the functionality of a smart speaker like the Echo Dot with a touchscreen you can use for video calls and controlling your smart home with a tap. We like the $90 Echo Show 5 a little better, but $160 for the full-sized Show is a tempting offer.
This is our favorite smart speaker for controlling your smart home. The Echo Plus has the same Alexa capabilities as the rest, it sounds better than other Amazon Echo speakers, and it has a built-in Zigbee hub so it can talk directly to small smart home sensors. With the Plus, you can do away with bulky third party hubs, so the $110 sale price is pretty appealing.
Amazon is now bundling in an Amazon Smart Plug for no extra cost as a Prime Day exclusive. The Plus and the Plug make a great smart home starter kit.
You can control Amazon's simple microwave with a voice command if you have a smart speaker like the Amazon Echo Dot. Fortunately, for Prime Day, you can buy the Microwave at its normal $60 price, and it comes with a free Dot. Say the word and get your popcorn cooking.
This is the lowest price ever for the 2018 Echo Dot, down from $25 earlier. It's currently unavailable in Charcoal color but the Sandstone model is still on sale for $22.
