Dealmaster: A bunch of Amazon Kindle, Fire, and Echo devices are discounted today

Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a sweeping set of discounts on Amazon-made devices, including various Echo speakers, Fire tablets, Fire TV media streamers, and Kindle e-readers.

Most of the deals are what we typically see when Amazon runs these periodic sales events, but they’re still largely good prices for what you’re getting. Highlights include a $30 discount on the latest Kindle Paperwhite, $20 off the Fire HD 8 tablet, and $10 off the 4K- and HDR-ready Fire TV 4K streamer. If you’re onboard with the Echo, the latest full-size model is currently at an all-time low, and there are various deals on Amazon-owned Eero routers and Ring home security cameras as well.

The elephant in the room here—besides the fact that Amazon is an increasingly powerful behemoth that may soon face elevated antitrust scrutiny—is that the company’s Prime Day sales event is likely just a month or so away. Exactly when it will occur is still unclear, but it’s almost certain to bring heavy price cuts to everything in this current Father’s Day sale. If you have Prime, or if you have a free trial to use on Prime Day itself, it might be best to hold off. But if not, or if you just can’t wait, these are mostly good prices and mostly useful gadgets.
