The Wirecutter's Best Amazon Prime Day Deals
From Engadget - July 10, 2017

Amazon Echo

Street Price: $180; MSRP: $180; Deal Price: $90

The best deal we have seen on the Amazon Echo at $90, easily beating our previous low of $130. This price even matches the best price we have seen on a refurbished model. If you are seeking to break in to the Alexa ecosystem or add to your existing one, now is the time as this is likely as low as we will see the Echo at any point this year. This price is available for the Black or White color. Shipping is free.

The Amazon Echo is a speaker we recommend in our Alexa guide. Grant Clauser writes, "Echo, always listening via Amazon's Alexa voice service, lets you play music, order pizza, and get questions answered, and can control popular smart-home devices and 1,000-plus other things."

All-New Fire HD 8 Tablet

Street Price: $80; MSRP: $80; Deal Price: $50

An interesting deal on the next generation of our current budget tablet pick (released in May 2017). The two are likely to be essentially the same tablet, the more current generation very slightly updated if at all. The most notable update seems to be the addition of support for microSD cards up to 256 GB, a nice perk for those with a lot of media to store. At $50, this is a new low for this tablet and $30 off street price. Shipping is free.

The last gen Fire HD 8 is our budget pick in our Best Android Tablets guide. Of the newest gen Fire HD 8, Chris Heinonen and Ryan Whitwam write, "The new Fire HD 8 is nearly identical to its predecessor, our budget pick, but it supports microSD cards up to 256 GB and costs $10 more. It's available now."
