Amazon has already started selling a number of its smart home devices at a discount almost a week before Prime Day even begins. One of the most notable deals already available is Amazon’s smart thermostat, which you can get for $42 – as long as you’re a Prime member. That’s 30 percent off the regular retail price of $60 and a new all-time low for the device. Launched in September 2021, Amazon’s smart thermostat offers you an affordable way to control the temperature of your home.

It’s not quite as feature-rich as its more expensive counterparts like the Google Nest Thermostat. But it’s Energy Star certified and can save you an average of $50 on your electricity bills each year. Plus, it’s Alexa compatible, allowing you to use the voice assistant to set custom heating and cooling routines. However, the thermostat itself doesn’t have a speaker or microphone, so you’ll need to use the Alexa app or another Alexa-enabled device like an Echo speaker to do this.
That brings us to another deal you can get right now: Amazon’s smart thermostat bundled with an Echo Dot speaker. The bundle with a fourth-gen Echo Dot speaker is $62, or $48 off the usual price, which is the lowest we’ve seen for it on the site. Meanwhile, the smart thermostat bundle with a second-gen Echo Show 5 smart display is also on sale for $77, or $68 off retail. That’s also a new all-time low for the duo.
If you’re primarily looking to buy Amazon’s Alexa-powered speakers, you can pick up a fourth-gen Echo Dot with an Amazon Smart Plug for $25. You’ll save $50 when you purchase the bundle, which normally retails for $75 and has never been so heavily discounted. Amazon’s smart plug adds Alexa voice control to any power outlet, so you can control any non-smart device connected to it, such as a smartphone or tablet. B. Lights, fans and other devices.
Finally, you can get the fourth-gen Echo Dot for Kids bundled with an Echo Glow Multicolor smart bulb with Prime for $36. That’s 60 percent, or $54, off the retail price and also includes a one-year Amazon Kids+ subscription.
