[Deal] Amazon slashes the Echo price to just $89 for Prime Day

Amazon’s Prime Day is technically tomorrow, but the 30 hours worth of deals actually start at 9PM ET, with 13 countries joining in the fun. It’s the third time that Amazon is holding its deals showcase, which in previous years has produced higher sales than the retailer’s Black Friday promotion. Join us after the break to check out a sneak-peek into the sort of deals you can expect to see.

As you might expect, Amazon’s devices are front and centre, with the Echo being discounted by 50% to $89.99, and the Dot dropping by $15 to $34.99. The Fire 7 tablet is reduced to $29.99, and you can grab the Kindle PaperWhite for $89.99. Prime members who haven’t previously signed up to Amazon Music Unlimited can also get four months of the streaming service for just $0.99 when buying an Echo device, Kindle e-reader, Fire TV device or Fire Tablet.

If you’ve recently purchased an Echo device, you can get a $10 discount off the 1st order you place through the Echo, Dot, or Show device.

Other prime picks include a 25% discount on Amazon Basics items, from office gear to outdoor stuff, and you can also save 30% on nursery essentials.
