Amazon Prime Day starts tomorrow — Monday, July 15 — but Amazon recently revealed (via press release) the full list of which Amazon devices will be on sale, and what their prices will be. A few of these deals are already available, like the Echo Input for $15. (See below for more.)
There are plenty of price cuts, but this year’s list is more about meeting past sales rather than beating them: while a few items beat Black Friday 2018 pricing, many others merely rival it, while some are priced a little higher. The Fire TV Cube, for example, will be $70, but it was $60 last November.
One notable omission: The all-new Echo Show 5, which debuted last month at $90 and will apparently stay there for Prime Day — unless you buy 2, which gets you $30 off. The larger Echo Show, however, will drop to $160, its all-time low.
Amazon says “select” device deals will hit the site a day early, on Sunday, July 14, at noon PT. And if you already own an Alexa-capable device, you can already start asking “What are my deals?”
Here’s a roundup of the deals available right now, followed by the complete list of Amazon device deals for Prime Day. Full disclosure: That list is mostly taken directly from an Amazon PR email that expands on the aforementioned press release. We’ll be parsing these (and other) deals throughout the weekend to highlight the best ones once the sale starts on Monday, July 15 at 12:01 a.m. PT.

Note: CBS All Access and Showtime are divisions of CNET’s parent company, CBS.
Prime Day deals available now
Another deal exclusively for Prime subscribers, the Ring Video Doorbell Pro and Echo Dot bundle drops to just $169 when you add them to your shopping cart. Previously the Ring was on sale for $169 all by itself — the Dot just adds icing to the cake.
Note that this sale is only for Amazon Prime members, with the discount applied at checkout. Right now, you can snag the Ring Video Doorbell Pro for the nice price of $170. The smart doorbell works with Alexa, and lets you check on your porch remotely with an app. You can even tell the delivery person to leave your package with your Amazon Echo Show 5 smart display.
Hold off on this one. The second gen Echo is great and $70 is a reasonable price, but it will drop to $50 on prime day.
Here are all the deals coming Monday
Prime Day Amazon Echo smart speaker and smart display deals
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.
Prime Day home security deals
The original Ring doorbell is on sale on Prime Day too, in addition to the newer Pro model. If you don’t need a slimmer design and 1080p streaming, go with the older Ring instead of the Pro to save yourself some money.
Ring’s simple, but reliable security system was already reasonably priced. The Prime Day sale makes it a great buy if you want a DIY system monitoring your home.
Amazon has sales on all kinds of Ring products for Prime Day, which makes sense as Amazon owns the smart home brand. The outdoor Spotlight cam hangs on your porch and provides reliable lighting and monitoring for your yard. The Spotlight Cam is also easy to set up, making it one of our favorite outdoor cams. The $140 price makes it a steal.
The Stick Up Cam doesn’t stand out from the crowd as well as the Spotlight cam. It’s an indoor cam with a wired and wireless version. It’s a solid performer, but lacks some of the features of similar security cams. Still, at a discount, it’s worth considering.
The Blink XT2 is a weatherproof security camera with a battery that can supposedly last for two years. Getting a two-pack for $100 is a nice deal.
More Prime Day smart home deals
Both the bundled system and Eero’s individual routers will be on sale on Monday. The mesh system in particular creates a seamless network capable of covering a large home. Our main issue with it is the price, which is dramatically less for Prime Day. If you want a mesh Wi-Fi system, this is a good time to grab one.
You can also save $100 on an Eero router during Prime Day (pay just $99).
Amazon Smart Plug and Amazon Echo Combo

Amazon is introducing a new bundle here and we’ll add the link once it’s live. The simple smart plug lets you add voice controlled connectivity to dumb devices like lamps. Pairing it together with an Amazon Echo smart speaker makes for a compelling smart home starter kit.
Our favorite smart thermostat has an Alexa speaker built-in and includes a temperature sensor so you can customize settings based on a specific room. The Ecobee SmartThermostat features better microphones and a sleeker finish than previous versions, and the sale brings the price into the range of less capable competition.
