Every day, the shopping giant adds and removes deals from this secret hub on a handful of Echo smart devices, Fire TV video streams, and Kindle e-readers—and the savings are huge. If you’re looking to build a smart home or just want to read mountains of books on one screen that goes anywhere, you need to know about this site. Here are our current favorite finds.
Echo Dot 5th Generation has all the features you know and love in an Alexa-enabled device, but with the best sound yet. This petite device—it’s less than 4 inches in diameter—looks great on your countertop or on a bookshelf. Choose between black and gray tones, both are on sale!
“Nothing to dislike!” said a happy buyer. “The 4th generation Dot was great but the sound wasn’t perfect. But this one – the clarity and quick response. It’s like you’re talking to a human! So quick is her perception of what you’re going to say.”

Echo Buds are small and lightweight, with reviewers swearing they feel like they’re wearing nothing. They include active noise canceling to block out background noise, along with four ear sizes to help you find the perfect fit.
“A great pair of budget headphones,” said a satisfied customer. “The ear tips are comfortable and I have been able to wear them for hours without any problems. The medium ear tips fit my ears, but I had to add medium sports fins. Three different sizes of fins and four different ear tips come in the box, the medium for all fits the ears on me. It doesn’t matter if I’m walking, bending over, lying down, or sitting up straight. The headphones stay comfortably in place without me having to adjust them or feeling like they’re falling out of my ears.”

“This is the best system I’ve ever used,” said a satisfied customer. “The speed is incredible… I never see dropouts or dead spaces.”

With this security kit, you can see, hear and talk to people inside and outside your home through the security system on your phone or Echo Show – and see what’s going on thanks to HD live view.
“If you’re looking for easy and cheap, like I was, Blink is the way to go,” said a five-star fan. “Adding a camera to the system is as easy as scanning a QR code. The image quality for the price is exceptional, even at night. I like how you can schedule the system to automatically arm and disarm at night very precisely on a seven-day schedule.”
