This story is part of , CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.
Amazon Prime Day starts in just a few hours, but if you’re looking to beat the rush, there are lots deals already available. We’re covering before Amazon Prime Day officially begins, but I’ll be focusing exclusively on in this post. , and others have announced some discounts ahead of Prime Day — and I’ll continue to update this list as more sales hit over the coming days.
At this price, the Blink Mini is within spitting distance of the CNET-favorite Wyze Cam ($20 plus shipping). Both models work quite well, though the latter includes free cloud storage, which the Blink doesn’t.
However, you get a free Blink cloud-storage trial through the end of 2020, and the forthcoming Blink Sync Module 2 will afford you subscription-free local storage for just $35.
Another great option: Get the Blink Mini bundled with an Echo Show 5 for just $50. These two have a combined retail value of $125!
Save $10 when you buy a Ring Video Doorbell 3 bundled with an Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker. They would normally cost $250, but you can snag both devices for $240. We reviewed the Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus, but the Video Doorbell 3 has a lot of the same features (minus the 3 Plus’s Pre-Roll option).
Get a Ring Stick Up Cam Battery with an Echo Dot for $140, $10 off the regular price. The Ring Stick Up Cam Battery is a battery-powered outdoor camera by Amazon smart home company Ring. Like Ring doorbells, the Stick Up Cam Battery has live streaming, alerts and cloud storage if you pay for Ring’s monthly cloud subscription service. The Echo Dot is Amazon’s pint-size Alexa smart speaker.
The Ring Stick Up Cam, typically costs $100, but it will be on sale for $80 soon for Prime Day. Ring’s Stick Up Cam is similar to the Amazon company’s smart doorbells. It has live streaming, motion alerts and optional cloud storage via the Ring Protect cloud subscription service.
