Dealmaster: A bunch of Amazon devices are on sale for Prime members today

Ars Technica

Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a new round of discounts on Amazon devices, including the company’s Fire TV Stick streamers, Fire tablets, and Kindle e-readers, among others. The catch? Most of the discounts are for Prime members only.

Still, that covers a whole lot of people, and a few of the discounts here either match or come close to the prices we saw during Amazon’s Prime Day event in July. The company’s

latest (and waterproof) Kindle Paperwhite

, for one,

is down to $90

, while the

entry-level Kindle

is down to $65. Both are $5 more than they were on Prime Day. At $50 and $30, respectively,

the Fire HD 8


Fire 7

are now matching their Prime Day prices and are still generally worthwhile choices for people wanting to spend as little as possible on a tablet. The

Fire TV Stick 4K

and 1080p

Fire TV Stick

aren’t as steeply discounted, meanwhile, but they’re both $15 off for those in need of a new streaming stick. The company’s

Cloud Cam

security camera and

Echo Show 5

smart display are significantly discounted for those who don’t have Prime, too.

The big caveat here is that Amazon is announcing new hardware of some sort next week. The company held an event last September where it mainly introduced new Echo devices and other smart home accessories, so it’s not certain that the Fire and Kindle devices here will be replaced, but there’s at least some chance that these discounts are designed to clear out inventory. Still, most of what’s here is a good value all the same. And if you’re not interested in having more Amazon in your life, we also have deals on Roku streamers, Logitech keyboards and mice, external hard drives, and more. Have a look at the full rundown below.
