Amazon Prime Day is just around the corner, but Amazon is already launching plenty of early Prime Day deals in time for the weekend. 

That means you can save on everything from MacBooks to AirPods, to Nintendo Switch and Amazon Echo devices ahead of the official October 13 kick-off date. The best part is we're bringing you all the best early Prime Day deals right here. 

We're seeing the lowest price ever on the Amazon Echo Show 5, with a $45 discount reserved for Prime Members. 

However, you can also pick up two Amazon Echo Spot displays for $110 off right now as well. In fact, we're seeing an excellent early supply of Echo deals this weekend - which is to be expected. 

If your home's already smart enough, you'll also find plenty of savings elsewhere. Amazon has launched a range of early Prime Day deals on Apple products and the Nintendo Switch is finally back in stock.

Remember, you'll need an Amazon Prime membership to take advantage of the best deals come October 13, but luckily there's a 30 day free trial available right now. We're rounding up all the best Amazon Prime Day deals available now just below.
