These awesome Prime Day deals on some of Amazon's most popular devices are already live
UPDATE: Amazon Prime Day 2020 may be long gone now, but we have Amazon Prime Day 2021 to look forward to. Here's what to expect this year:

Although we're technically still six days away from the official start of Amazon's highly anticipated and oft-delayed Prime Day 2020 sales event, the e-commerce giant is wasting no time treating its most devoted customers to some sweet deals on the company's best-selling smart speakers, tablets, e-book readers, and more.

Hot on the heels of those killer Echo Show 5 promotions we told you about just yesterday, several other substantial Amazon device discounts appear to have been recently added to the dedicated Prime Day section of the world's most popular e-commerce platform.

Interestingly, some of these very compelling deals can even be claimed by non-Prime members, like a 50 percent price cut for a third-gen Echo Dot Kids Edition in Blue and Rainbow colors that normally costs $69.99 a pop. Or a 25 percent discount on a Fire HD 8 Kids Edition two-pack of your choice.

Meanwhile, you will need to sign up for an Amazon Prime subscription before you can shave 80 bucks off the $209 list price of a certified refurbished second-gen Echo Show with a 10.1-inch screen and 1-year warranty, and the same goes for a certified refurbished second-gen Echo Plus currently available at 50 percent off its $119.99 MSRP.

In case you're wondering, these are two of the most successful Echo-branded devices that have yet to get a sequel, although the overhauled and vastly improved third-gen Echo Show 10 is slated for a vague commercial release "in time for the holidays." The fourth-gen "regular" Echo you can pre-order ahead of an October 22 delivery start essentially renders the Echo Plus obsolete by integrating smart home hub functionality, but the aforementioned $60 discount keeps the "Plus" model in the limelight for a little while longer.

Up next, Amazon Prime members should be happy to hear they can save $30 on the Echo Auto to easily add Alexa assistance to their car, as well as bring the $79.99 regular price of a certified refurbished Kindle with a built-in front light and "special offers" down by a cool 30 bucks of its own.

Last but certainly not least, you don't need to wait until October 13 to save anywhere between $45 and $70 (or more) on a number of Kindle, Kindle Kids Edition, and Kindle Paperwhite "essentials" bundles including various handy covers, screen protectors, and power adapters.
