Amazon Prime Day 2020 deals already available in UK: huge Echo Show 5 discount, Blink security camera and more


This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide to everything you need to know and how to make sure you’re getting the best deal.

Amazon Prime Day officially begins in the UK tomorrow, Tuesday October 13th. It will last two days, although some of the best savings, including tech like headphones, smart speakers, cameras, TVs and more, will last all week – and some notable deals are already available.

Amazon’s own devices (such as Kindle, Echo, and Ring) still offer great deals, but you can expect big deals on other brands like Sony, Bose, Toshiba, and more. As the name suggests, you must be an Amazon Prime member to enjoy the savings.

But while the big Prime Day sale isn’t expected to start until tomorrow, savvy UK shoppers can already find bargains now and start their Christmas shopping early. Check out our pick of the best Amazon Prime Day deals below and be sure to bookmark this page, as we’ll be highlighting the best savings on everything tech-related throughout the week.

Note that the pricing below assumes you have a Amazon Prime membership (£ 8 per month or £ 80 per year). Price was correct at time of posting, but is subject to change without notice. We’ll be updating this story with the best UK Prime Day deals we find throughout the week.

The Echo Dot is Amazon’s smallest and most affordable smart speaker, making it a great option for adding Alexa voice control to any room in your home.

The Echo Show 5 is Amazon’s smallest smart display, which uses its voice assistant, Alexa, to let you play videos, manage your calendar, view weather reports, and more. At just £ 45, it’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

With an 8-inch screen, the Echo Show 8 offers the same functionality as its smaller brothers, but with a larger screen for more immersive video. Like the Echo Show 5, this discount is the biggest saving we’ve seen on this product.

The Blink Mini is one of the most affordable ways to add extra security to your property. With Full HD resolution, night vision, microphones and motion detection, it provides live feed to your phone to give you peace of mind when you are away from home.

Available with a battery or as a wired option, this outdoor security camera features a built-in, motion-activated LED light to scare off intruders, while providing real-time Full HD video power to your phone.

If you’re struggling to get a good Wi-Fi signal in the bedroom at the back of your house, a mesh Wi-Fi system might help. By repeating the signal through the multiple base stations, your signal can extend much further into your home, providing a faster and more stable connection anywhere. It’s not the fancy new Eero 6 system, but even the old model is a good option at this price point.
