Yesterday, Amazon announced that Prime Day 2020 will be closed for October 13th and 14th. It's usually July, but the coronavirus has pushed it back, now next door to other shopping holidays like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Some early deals were released before the big day, and more are likely to expire by then, like today.
The new spherical Amazon Echo (4th generation) introduced last week is discounted when you buy it in a 2-pack. Typically $ 100 per smart speaker, you can top up two for $ 170 ($ 30 off) when you check out and use the promotion code ECHO2PK. This product won't be released until October 22nd, but it's nice to save some money on this technology before it even comes out.
The new Echo Dot (4th generation) is a cheaper option that can also be purchased in a 2-pack with similar savings. These cost $ 50 each, but if you add two to your cart with the code DOT2PACKYou get two for $ 80 ($ 20 off). This Echo Dot will be released on October 22nd.
To save two packs of Echo Dots with integrated digital clocks as shown above, you can insert the same offer code as shown above at the checkout. Their price will be a bit higher, however, at $ 100 for two instead of $ 120. This model will be released on November 5th.
Another deal for early Prime Day 2020 is this 50-inch Insignia 4K HDR TV. Usually $ 350, $ 250. Currently, no offer code is required to receive this discount.
This model comes with Amazon's Fire TV software, which runs as the operating system (instead of requiring additional hardware like a Fire TV Stick) so you can instantly access popular TV and movie streaming apps like Netflix, Disney Plus, YouTube, Hulu and of course Prime Video. The overall look and build quality of the TV probably won't hold up to more expensive options, but this could work well if you need something big and cheap that gives you plenty to see.
