Amazon's fifth annual Prime Day has started (and despite its name, runs for 48 hours). Expect big deals on Amazon devices, from the Amazon Echo to the Kindle and Amazon Music itself.  

We're collecting all the best deals on Amazon devices right here, in the US and the UK…

UK: Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen): was £49.99, now £22
At less than half-price this is a great deal on the 'entry-level Alexa', Amazon's most popular voice-controlled speaker. The sound is decent considering the size – not ideal for serious music-listening but great for podcasts, radio, and news-listening in the kitchen, say, and with all the usual added benefits of an Echo: it'll play music (via Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, TuneIn and others), answer questions, read the news, check the weather, set alarms, control compatible smart home devices, and more.View Deal

UK: Amazon Echo (2nd Gen): was £89.99, now £54.99
If your budget doesn't extend to the Echo Plus, but you're nervous about the size and output of the Dot, then the Echo is the one for you. Seriously reduced, it's now more affordable than ever.

Puny in size it may be – in volume it's pretty mighty.View Deal
