This article will be updated regularly as new Prime Day 2020 deals become available
UPDATE: All of the deals listed and detailed below are now live until October 15. Enjoy your early holiday shopping spree!
It's happening, ladies and gentlemen!!! The huge sales event that was supposed to take place months ago, in line with the previous editions of Amazon's summer Prime Day festival, is scheduled for October 13 and 14 after hitting a predictable snag caused by the coronavirus pandemic that gravely impacted so many different businesses, companies, and tech industry segments.
While 2020 has been a most unusual year (and definitely not in a good way), some things never change, as illustrated by Amazon's willingness to reveal pretty much every single killer Prime Day deal prepared for the e-commerce giant's in-house products.
We're talking everything from Kindle-branded e-book readers to Android-based Fire tablets, Alexa-controlled Echo smart speakers and smart displays, and various other smart home gadgets, all of which will be deeply discounted or are
already available at lower than ever prices. That's right, a number of compelling promotions have kicked off early
(in keeping with tradition), while the rest of the amazing deals listed and detailed below are set to go live at 12am PT on Tuesday, October 13, running for a whopping 48 hours.

Amazon Kindle Prime Day sale
Yes, good old fashioned e-readers are alive and well even in this day and age, but curiously enough, Amazon has yet to announce plans to discount the humblest and most impressive members of the always popular Kindle family right now. On the bright side, that still leaves you with two awesome deals to look forward to. Check that, the high-end Oasis variant is now on sale as well at a lower than ever price.
The waterproof Kindle Paperwhite with 8 gigs of internal storage space will be available at 38 percent off its list price.The aptly named Kindle Kids Edition, including a colorful protective cover and 2-year worry-free guarantee, will go $35 under its MSRP.The Kindle Oasis has a high-quality 7-inch glare-free screen, a flush-front design, and IPX8 water resistance, costing $75 and $80 less than usual in 8 and 32GB storage variants respectively bundled with $5 e-book credit.
Discounts on Amazon Echo speakers and Echo Show for Prime Day
The world's most popular smart speakers
have always been near the top of Amazon's lists of the best Prime Day bargains available with a Prime membership and no other strings attached, and obviously, this year is no exception.
Released in 2018, the diminutive but incredibly versatile and decently powerful third-gen Echo Dot is almost ready to score an unprecedented 60 percent discount.The previous-generation Echo Dot is also on sale at a truly irresistible price in combination with an Amazon Smart Plug after a $51 total markdown.The yet-to-be upgraded Echo Show 5 smart display is up for grabs in advance of the 48-hour Prime Day deal bonanza at 50 percent off its regular price.You can save even more ($65 instead of just $45) if you purchase the Echo Show 5 together with an always handy Amazon Smart Plug.The heavily discounted Echo Show 5 can also be had alongside a complimentary 1-year Food Network Kitchen subscription (normally worth $39.99), which negates the appeal of the solo smart display deal.A 3-month Amazon Kids+ subscription is technically not as valuable as the aforementioned foodie-oriented gift, but if you have children, you'll certainly appreciate being able to pay a measly $0.99 for it when you get the Echo Show 5 at a 50 percent discount.There sure is no shortage of special Echo Show 5 bundle deals this Prime Day, with the pint-sized smart display also available together with a similarly diminutive Blink Mini indoor smart security camera at a total discount of 75 bucks.Much like its little brother, 2019's Echo Show 8 hasn't received a sequel just yet, but it will soon receive a substantial $65 markdown.In anticipation of the impending release of the redesigned third-gen Echo Show, bargain hunters should be ecstatic to hear the second-gen 10-inch model is going $80 off list.The already affordable Echo Auto can now easily and seamlessly add Alexa voice assistance to your car at an even lower price than usual after a $30 discount.Before pulling the trigger on the solo Echo Auto, you might want to consider a separate Prime Day deal bundling the marked-down device with six free months of Amazon Music Unlimited access. Unfortunately, only "eligible customers" can currently claim this outstanding bargain.The Echo Flex is an incredibly convenient and affordable little device that can "make any space a little smarter" by plugging into any wall outlet and putting Alexa at your disposal, and for a limited time, you can shave 60 percent off its regular price.While it's reportedly unlikely that Apple will roll out a high-end HomePod 2 smart speaker anytime soon, Amazon seems prepared to fend off any and all competition in that market segment with the premium Echo Studio, available right now for 50 bucks less than usual.But wait, the Echo Studio can also be had at a $50 discount with two extra Philips Hue bulbs thrown in at no charge whatsoever.If you already own enough smart bulbs to fill more than one place, you might be interested in opting for an Echo Studio with Amazon Smart Plug package instead at $70 off.It's probably safe to say that the Echo Buds are not the world's most popular AirPods alternatives, but at $50 off their already reasonable list price, these Alexa-enabled true wireless earbuds are definitely worth a shot this Prime Day if you're on a tight budget.The Echo Link is certainly not the most popular Echo-branded device on the market today, but at a $60 discount, this high-fidelity music streamer for your good old fashioned stereo system might be worth a shot.As the name suggests, the Echo Link Amp comes with a built-in 60W 2-channel amplifier in addition to the basic hi-fi music streaming capabilities of the standard Echo Link, unsurprisingly scoring an even deeper $90 price cut.
Save on Amazon Fire tablets this Prime Day
There's a good reason why Amazon is typically ranked among the top five and occasionally even the top three global tablet vendors during the holiday season, as the company's Fire devices often drop their prices into impulse buy territory. Case in point:
The Fire HD 10 is gearing up to shave 50 percent off its reasonable regular price with a 1080p display in tow, powerful octa-core processor under the hood, and a stellar battery life of up to 12 hours on a single charge.If you want to save even more, the Fire HD 10 is also available at an $85 discount when paired with an Amazon Standing Case, Nupro screen protector, and 15W USB-C charger. That's right, the mid-end tablet is equipped with fast charging capabilities, which is not exactly a standard feature for the Fire family.Released earlier this year, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is up for grabs at a lower than ever price after a $60 cut.The "regular" all-new Fire HD 8 is also on sale at a cool $35 less than usual.2019's robust Fire 7 Kids Edition, covered by a pretty much unbeatable 2-year worry-free guarantee, will be 40 bucks cheaper than usual during the Prime Day festivities.If you think your children could need some extra screen real estate, you can get the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition at a 35 percent discount.The Fire HD 8 Plus is obviously not physically larger than the Fire HD 8, instead packing an extra gig of memory to enhance its multitasking skills. For a limited time, you can get that at a $35 discount.
Smart home Prime Day sale: Ring Video doorbell, Blink Mini Indoor cam
An Alexa-enabled smart speaker or smart display is undeniably a good place to start putting together a smart home setup, but obviously, you need a bunch of other stuff to turn your comfy nest (no Google-inspired pun intended) into a modern, intuitive, and fully automated environment. Normally, that might cost you an arm and a leg, but Amazon is ready to lend you a hand to save big on several essential smart home accessories and cool bundles.
The hot new second-gen Ring Video Doorbell, released earlier this year, is getting a substantial $30 price cut by itself.The all-new Ring Video Doorbell goes great with a third-gen Echo Dot at a combined $70 discount.The higher-end Ring Video Doorbell 3, which includes a rechargeable battery pack, as well as a couple of faceplates, wedge and corner mounts, will be available alongside the Echo Show 5 smart display at a whopping $140 off the bundle's regular price.The Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus stands out from the non-Plus version with a Pre-Roll feature offering you 4-second video previews, and for a limited time, you can get that for $70 less than usual.The even higher-end Ring Video Doorbell Pro can do 1080p video at a huge $170 markdown in combination with the Echo Show 5 smart display.The battery-powered Ring Stick Up Cam HD security camera is looking at a 20 percent Prime Day discount.The aptly (and not at all creepily) named Ring Peephole Cam with 1080p support and a removable battery can be had at a massive $110 price cut in a bundle with the third-gen Echo Dot.Not only is the Ring Spotlight Cam battery setup discounted by 25 percent right now, but for a limited time, buyers can also get the Echo Show 5 at no extra charge.The crazy cheap Ring Motion Sensor is 40 percent more affordable than usual, but before you purchase this thing, you might want to keep in mind you'll also need a Ring Bridge to actually make use of it as part of a Ring smart home setup.The ultra-affordable Blink Mini indoor plug-in smart security camera is even more affordable right now after a Prime-exclusive 28 percent markdown.The "all-new" Blink Outdoor security camera with motion detection and two-year battery life is on sale at an essentially irresistible $100 discount for Amazon Prime members only.The popular 5-piece Ring Alarm kit includes a base station, keypad, contact sensor, motion detector, and range extender, as well as a complimentary third-gen Echo Dot smart speaker for a limited time, at a total discount of $129.99.
