Best Amazon device deals on Prime Day 2018

It's Amazon's national holiday, so of course the retail juggernaut is pushing big savings for its own Alexa-powered devices.

Lest we forget, Amazon made e-readers ubiquitous, tablets affordable, and smart speakers a thing. And just like clockwork, the retail giant is using Prime Day 2018 to drop prices on Kindles, Fire tablets, and Echo smart speakers. Oh, and don’t forget Amazon owns Ring now—so Ring Video Doorbell products are on sale too, along with Amazon's own Cloud Cam.

If you want to see the whole line-up of Amazon device price reductions, go to this Amazon page that showcases all the gadgets Amazon makes itself. Or just keep reading for a rundown of what’s on sale by category.

Looking for more Amazon Prime Day bargains? Check out our full list of deals.

Kindle E-reader deals

Our recommendation: Get the Paperwhite. It’s our favorite overall E-reader.

Fire Tablet deals

Our recommendation: We prefer iPads and high-end Android tablets, but at $100, the entry-level Fire HD 10 is a steal. 

Echo family device deals

Our recommendation: We’re still reviewing the Echo Look, but we feel you can’t go wrong with the Echo Show (it's a full-on smart display) or the Echo Dot (it’s insanely cheap, and fully Alexa-enabled). Incidentally, the Dot is currently back at its all-time low price, which we last saw during Black Friday 2017. What's more, Amazon is offering six months of Amazon Music Unlimited free with the purchase of an Echo device during Prime Day.)

Fire TV deals

Our recommendation: This one’s easy—the TV Stick is a better overall product, and look at that price.

Ring Doorbell and Amazon Cloud Cam deals

Our recommendation: We love security cameras, whether they focus on our doorsteps or living rooms. We never reviewed the Doorbell Pro, but love all of Ring's other doorbells. And we give high praise to the Amazon Cloud Cam as well as the Ring Spotlight Cam. Both received our Editors' Choice awards.

Of course, you’ll need Amazon Prime to realize these deals (go here to sign up). You may also consider our suggestions for getting a short-term Prime membership for free.
