Best Prime Day 2018 Deals: Echo, Kindle, Fire, Cloud Cam

Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers are rarely expensive (unless you opt for the premium Kindle Oasis). They’re built to be affordable, and they’re as cheap as they’ll get this year for Amazon Prime Day 2018. We’ve compiled every decent deal on Amazon-branded devices going on right now, which also includes Cloud Cams and Fire TVs. Some of them are pretty deeply discounted. Many, possibly all, of these deals will end at 2:45 a.m. ET July 18.

Amazon has a Device Deals page with many of the deals, but we have them all organized below.

Echo & Alexa Speakers

Amazon Echo Show


Read our WIRED Best Echo & Alexa Speakers guide for recommendations on which Amazon Echos we think are worth your hard-earned money. Our Best Smart Speakers guide has some Google speaker recommendations, as well. If you want to browse Amazon’s device deals for yourself, head over to its sale page.

Fire HD Tablets

Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet


We’re fans of some of Amazon’s Fire Tablets. The Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 are our two favorites, along with the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition (if you’re buying for a little one). Read more about all of Amazon’s tablets in our Which is the Best Fire Tablet? guide.

For most folks, the Fire HD 7 isn’t the best to buy because of its lower-quality screen, processing power, battery life, and camera. But it is also on sale this week and is dirt cheap, perfect for a kid. Amazon is also offering 3 months of its Kids FreeTime Unlimited for $3, which puts kid-friendly games, books, and TV shows on tap.

Kindle e-Readers

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite


The Kindle Paperwhite is our favorite ebook reader. It gives you an easy-to-read backlit screen and incredible month-long battery life, but it’s not the only solid e-reader Amazon makes. You can read about every Kindle in the guide to Our Favorite Kindles.

If you do buy a Kindle from Amazon, check out Kindle Unlimited. It’s normally $10 a month, but during Prime Day you can get 3 months for $1. It lets you read unlimited books (and listen to Audible books) for that price. If you’re an avid reader, the math is in your favor.

Cloud Cams & Ring Door Cams

Amazon Cloud Cam


The Amazon Cloud Cam allows you to monitor your home and do other things like allow Amazon delivery folks to enter your home. You can access video for the last 24 hours and it has features like night vision and two-way audio. To get more, Amazon has a subscription with features like person detection.

Fire TVs

Amazon Fire TV 4K


Amazon’s latest Fire TV supports hands-free Alexa and some advanced features like 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos sound. The other Fire TVs are now just compact dongles for your TV, and easily tuck away without much hassle. The Fire TV 4K is one of our picks for the Best TV Streaming Devices.

Fire TV Deals

Dash Buttons

Amazon Dash Buttons


All Dash Buttons are on sale for $1 instead of $5. They’re Amazon’s small little Wi-Fi enabled clickable buttons that you can stick around your house to easily re-order items. Each button is tied to a particular company. If you have, say, a particular type of laundry detergent you always buy, you could stick a Tide Dash Button on your laundry machine and tap it whenever you’re running low. It adds the Tide to your cart.

Other good uses might be for re-ordering diapers or Keurig K Cups. Just do us a favor and please don’t buy the Funyuns button if you hope to live a full, healthy life.

Amazon Prime Subscription Deals

These are deals above and beyond what Amazon normally offers for its various services.
