San Jose, Calif. (KTVU) - Amazon Prime Day 2019 is upon us, and the e-commerce giant has lined up a bunch of sales and discounts on tech gear that are at their lowest prices ever. If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, now’s probably the best time to take the gadgets off your wish list and on to your shopping cart.
There are discounts on literally thousands of electronic items, so it’s hard to stay on top of all of them. It’s hard to ascertain the actual price from the sticker price of a device and how significant the price drop is. For this round-up, we used a website called camelcamelcamel which tracks and graphs the price history of a product on Amazon.
Here’s a shortlist of some of the most deeply discounted on smartphones, smart watches, smart speakers, tablets, headphones, and more that we've found so far.
Amazon Fire TV, Echo, Tablets, Kindle, and more
Some of the biggest price drops on Prime Day are on Amazon’s range of smart speakers, tablets, e-book readers, and media streaming devices. The Echo Dot is selling at $22, the smart speaker’s price usually fluctuates between $30-50. The Fire TV Stick 4k is on sale for $24.99 (usually $40-50).
