Amazon is the place to find thousands of Labor Day deals, but the “everything store” saved some of the best discounts for its own hardware. You can save on Kindles, Echos, Fire TVs, and Fire tablets by shopping right now. The company is even offering a 20 percent discount plus store credit if you trade in your older Amazon hardware and upgrade to the latest version. If you’ve been holding out on making your home smarter, or want an inexpensive reading device or tablet, these are the first Labor Day deals you should check out.
Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen), $39.99 (Was $84.99)
The Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) has all the same features as Amazon’s other smart speakers, but its five-inch display adds an entirely new layer of functionality. If you ask Alexa for the weekly weather forecast, you’ll actually see the highs, lows, and general weather conditions for each day rather than having to wait for the smart assistant to tell you about them. If you set a timer, or want to know the time, you’ll be able to check it at a glance. If you ask to play a song, you can see its lyrics, and select the next one by tapping the Show 5’s touch screen.
Part of what makes the Echo Show 5 appealing is its relatively small size, which makes it the perfect smart speaker for a bedside table or desk. It may not be the biggest or most powerful smart speaker in Amazon’s portfolio, but at $39.99 you’d be hard-pressed to find a better early Labor Day deal in this price range.
Echo Dot (4th Gen), $34.99 (Was $49.99)
Kindle, $64.99 (Was $89.99)
Fire TV Stick 4K, $39.99 (Was $49.99)
Fire HD 8, $69.99 (Was $89.99)
Fire HD 10, $129.99 (Was $149.99)
