Amazon has just announced that its highly-anticipated Prime Day deals event will take place on June 21 and 22, and to celebrate, the retailer is offering fantastic discounts that you can shop today on its best-selling devices, including the latest Echo Dot, the Fire TV Stick Lite, the all-new Echo Show and smart home bundles.

Some highlighted offers include a 30% discount (opens in new tab) on the 4th generation Echo Dot, the budget Fire TV Stick Lite on sale for just $24.99 (opens in new tab), and the Echo Show 5 on sale for a record-low price of $44.99 (opens in new tab) (was $89.99) - only $5 more than the record-low price.

You'll also find smart home bundles at today's sale like the top-rated 8-piece Ring Alarm and Echo Dot on sale for $259.99 (opens in new tab) (was $299.99) and you can snag a $10 Blink Mini (opens in new tab) (normally $34.99) with the all-new Echo Show 5 smart display.

Unlike Prime Day, you don't have to be an Amazon Prime member (opens in new tab) to shop today's deals, and while we predict the prices will drop even further during the upcoming sale, these are still decent discounts if you're looking to snag a bargain today.
