  • Amazon Prime Day Fire HD 10

That means consumers are likely to see major price cuts across the range of Echo speakers and Amazon is already giving a taste of what could be to come. Partly for the streaming service that lets me watch my favorite campy horror movies and partly because I get free two-day (and sometimes one-day or same-day) shipping on nearly everything I shop for.

There's only two days until Prime Day 2019 kicks off, but that isn't stopping Amazon from offering its Voice Shoppers some exclusive deals to kick things off right now! Whether you're on your laptop, iPhone, Android smartphone or jamming out on your Alexa-enabled speakers, here are all the apps and websites you should visit during Prime Day.

July 15 and 16 officially mark this year's Prime Day (I know, that's two days, not one), so we've got extra time to search for what we want. For regular Whole Foods shoppers who plan to do any Prime Day shopping, taking advantage of this promotion is a no-brainer.

If you buy anything from Amazon, you'd be a fool not to be a Prime member. That's in addition to other deals on toys, sporting goods and bedding.

Father uses case of beer as booster seat for child, police say

Stranger Things 3 just broke a huge Netflix record
Netflix occasionally publishes viewing figures for certain shows but the majority of its data is closely guarded. So I don't understand why they would want to expand even with the reaction they got from that episode.

Jaguar Land Rover develops AI mood detection to reduce driver stress
In time the system will learn a driver's preference and make increasingly tailored adjustments. Reports suggest 74 per cent of drivers admit to feeling stressed or overwhelmed every day*.

It's important, therefore, that you keep checking Amazon's site early and often.

Among our favorite Prime Day deals is the Amazon Fire HD 10 for $99.99. You'll also find some pre-order titles cheaper at Amazon, such as Doom Eternal and Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, so Prime Day may be a good time to secure your copy, especially since Amazon will give you the cheapest price on your pre-order if it drops again. Amazon will obviously get most of the attention, since its sales event will have the most deals, but you might be surprised by the savings you can get elsewhere.

It's the ideal time to grab a bargain on that household product you've been eyeing for weeks or just spoil yourself because you damn well deserve it.

Amazon Prime Day is a fun event that can help you save bundles of cash.
