October 13, 2020 By iwano@_84 Off

Amazon Prime Day doesn’t officially begin until tomorrow, Tuesday, Oct. 13, but because Amazon’s popular sale event is almost here, the retailer has already dropped a few early deals in hopes of enticing early shoppers.

The real sales and steep discounts will kick off at midnight tonight and continue through Wednesday, but today you can still score on a few items including Amazon and Alexa-compatible smart devices and other products.

If you don’t have a Prime account, some of these deals won’t work for you, so sign up for Amazon Prime before shopping. Here’s a look at a few of the best deals available now.

The Best Deal

Amazon Alexa Echo Dot Smart Device (3rd Generation) + Amazon Music

One of the best deals on Amazon today is an awesome deal on the third generation Amazon Echo Dot Alexa-enabled Smart Device going on sale for just $18.99 (regularly $40 when on sale) and comes with SIX MONTHS of Amazon Music Unlimited (a roughly $48 value) for free.

Alexa-Compatible Items
