Ecobee doesn't need Prime Day to take $40 off its Premium thermostat
We may be officially past Amazon Prime Day, but that's not stopping some retailers from dropping late deals that deserve a look. We saw some pretty great Prime Day smart home deals this year, but one of the best yet just dropped to keep the party going. Ecobee offers one of the best smart thermostats on the market right now, but with a standard price tag of $250, it's one of the most expensive options you can go with, aside from the Google Nest Learning Thermostat. However, Ecobee skipped Prime Day altogether and just dropped their Premium smart thermostat down to its best price ever, taking $40 off this top-of-the-line option for a limited time.
Save 20% on a 40,000mAh 30W USB-C portable charger before it's gone
While Amazon Prime Day may be officially over and in the books, some deals have been extended to give shoppers a chance to save if they missed out the past two days. If a portable charger is something you were hoping to grab during the sale, one of the best Prime Day power bank deals is still up for grabs, and it's more than worth a look. Anker's 347 40,000mAh 30W power bank is one of the largest power banks you'll find on sale still, making it perfect if you've got multiple devices in need of a quick charge on the go. It's also one of the best values you'll find, since you can still get it for a solid 20% off right now.
The Echo Pop is down to a much more reasonable $18
The new Echo Pop, which just came out in May of this year, falls into a strange spot among the other options in Amazon's line of Echo smart speakers. Essentially taking the Echo Dot and trimming it down in both form and function, it's meant to be a more basic — and cheaper — alternative to one of Amazon's best smart speakers to date. However, at its standard $40 price tag, it's hard to justify a purchase when you realize that the Echo Dot is only $10 more. With Amazon Prime Day in full swing, two deals are here that take over 50% off this nifty little smart speaker and drop it down to a much more acceptable $18 for the speaker alone and $19 for the speaker with a Sengled smart bulb bundled in.
Ring cameras and alarms are getting deep discounts this year
It's no surprise that Amazon would discount their own devices during Prime Day, and as expected, the company's most popular smart home security tech is getting some deep discounts this year. The ever-popular line of Ring cameras and alarm systems are on sale for up to 50% off, making this the perfect time to upgrade your home security system. From the simple yet must-have Ring Indoor Cam to complete Ring alarm systems, there are deals to be found and savings to be had.
For as low as you $800, the Z Flip 4 is the foldable you've been dreaming of
Everyone knows that Prime Day deals have some of the best offers on smartphones you'll find all year, including sweet discounts on the latest and greatest Samsung phones. It's the perfect time to grab a new Android phone, whether on a tight budget or ready to splurge. Trust me; there's something for everyone that's worth your hard-earned cash. And, if you've been hunting for a deal on a foldable phone, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 might be the end of your search. With upgraded storage and a killer discount, this excellent little foldable device is one of the best prices we've seen in months.
Sony's A80K features a beautiful display and enhanced gaming tech for $702 off
It wouldn't be Prime Day without that one deal that makes you say "whoa," and if you've been scouring for a good offer on a new TV and smart home device, this one just may have you clicking the "Buy Now" button. There are literally hundreds of 4K TV deals going on right now at Amazon (and just about everywhere else), but few offer a display of this quality for such a good price. Sony's Bravia XR series TVs are some of the top displays on the market, and they've got the price tags to show it with the 55-inch option starting at $1,800. However, Amazon's offering an unbeatable deal that takes $702 off this gorgeous display, bringing it down to just under $1,100 — the premium OLED display's lowest price ever.
Snag the impressive EarFun Air Pro 3 earbuds for $64 right now
With Amazon's two-day Prime Day savings event underway, the chance to score a killer deal on a pair of wireless earbuds is finally here for budget-conscious buyers. While there are plenty of offers to check out, one in particular just dropped on the EarFun Air Pro 3, one of our favorite buds. With an already low price point of $80 to start, they've quickly found a spot in our hearts as some of the best budget-friendly buds you can grab, but an extra $15 discount this Prime Day makes them an even better buy.
With up to 60% off, there’s no better time than now to grab an Echo smart speaker
With Amazon dropping offers like this ahead of Prime Day, one might begin to wonder if the big event has already started. Along with some slick deals on Fire TV Sticks and other Alexa-powered devices, the popular Echo Dot (5th Gen), the more budget-friendly Echo Pop, and the premium Echo Studio smart speakers are next on the list to receive big discounts before the sale starts. The timing couldn't be better with these deals if you're an early shopper, as these offers sell out quickly during the actual sale.
Brighten up your day with a free Ring Smart Bulb and over $100 in savings
The lead up to Prime Day 2023 is heating up, with some impressive deals on Amazon's latest smart devices showing up ahead of the main event to really hammer home the savings we can expect this year. One whopper of a deal just dropped on one of the best Echo smart displays available to date, offering the Echo Show 10 at its lowest price ever. Taking over $100 off, the savings alone make this deal an excellent value for those looking to snag this premium display — but to make things even better, Amazon is throwing in a free Ring Smart Bulb at no extra cost.

As long as you don’t mind the Desert Sand color, you can save $70 now
Earbuds tend to be a crapshoot when it comes to how they fit, and even the best wireless earbuds available won't be perfectly comfortable in each unique set of ears. However, there are a few options on the market that nail the landing on fit, and the Sony LinkBuds S true wireless earbuds are among them. They're genuinely delightful to wear, offering a more compact earbud that fits snugly without becoming irritating, and actually provide decent sound quality and active noise cancelation. At $200, they may get outplayed by competing buds in this price range, but since they've dropped to their lowest price of $130 ahead of Amazon Prime Day, they are an excellent value.
Both Echo Buds wired and wireless charging options are getting deep discounts
Deal hunters can score some pretty awesome discounts in the lead up to Prime Day 2023, especially if you've been holding out for discounts on Amazon devices. If you're waiting until July to snag a good pair of cheap true wireless earbuds, a deal on Amazon's Echo Buds just dropped that may be worth your hard-earned cash right now. Both the 2nd Gen 2021 wired and wireless charging models are already on sale, with the wired option getting a whopping 46% off and dropping to $65 while the wireless option is down to $85.

Samsung's last-gen Galaxy tech gets big discounts during Woot's Geek Week sale
While Samsung's latest line of Galaxy S23 smartphones and Galaxy Watch 5 smartwatches just hit the market earlier this year, not all of us out there are technological hipsters looking to jump to the newest devices as soon as they arrive. There's still some good life to get out of older generation devices like the Galaxy S22 or the Galaxy Watch 4 (the latter of which is barely two years old), and, in rare cases, you can find them extremely cheap.
The perfect bundle to start your smart home security system has arrived
Amazon's newest smart speaker, the Echo Pop, is the budget-friendly way to get yourself going on an Alexa setup in your smart home. At $40, this entry-level Echo device offers an updated design that features a front-facing speaker, which is perfect for any smaller rooms in need of a good audio boost for music. But wouldn't it be sweet if you could grab one of these and get a free Ring Video Doorbell in the process? Well good news for all you smart home shoppers out there, Amazon just dropped an early Prime Day deal that combines the Echo Pop with a Ring Video Doorbell, one of the best doorbell cameras on the market, for just $40 — the same cost of an Echo Pop on its own!
Beating your wellness goals with Samsung's watch is a lot easier when it's $50 cheaper
Samsung's Galaxy Watch 5 may not be a massive leap forward from its predecessor, the Galaxy Watch 4, when it comes to design and function. However, there are enough changes to help push Samsung's latest wearable to the top of the charts. It's one of our favorite watches for many reasons, with a more durable Sapphire Crystal Glass display and more form-fitting design just to name a couple. It's a great watch for Samsung — and Android — users in general, and at $50 off is one of the best smartwatches you can get for your money right now.
Preorder the new Pixel Fold for half the price — no trade-in required
The latest entry into the foldable smartphone market, the Google Pixel Fold, is just a week away from being released into the wild, and we couldn't be more excited. Well, we could be if it wasn't tagged at a starting price of almost $1,900. It's a hefty chunk of cash to put down for a new phone, which might be difficult for some to come by right now. Thankfully, AT&T is here to save the day with a great offer that takes just over half off Google's new foldable.
Arlo's HD video doorbell features two-way audio and night vision for just $60
There are plenty of video doorbells out there capable of keeping a close eye on your front door, but not many do it quite as well as Arlo's Essential Video Doorbell. It offers a good amount of features for the price, delivering a perfect balance of accessibility and value for the money. However, it can be a bit on the costly side of doorbell cameras at its standard $150 price tag. Thanks to this deal at Amazon, though, you can snag one of the best smart doorbell cameras at its lowest price ever.
Save $80 on adjustable active noise cancellation and legendary Bose sound quality
