The latest Amazon sale, dubbed the End of summer sale, has just landed over at their official store and is offering some great deals, especially for those on the hunt for cheap tablets and smart home devices.

As is the norm with Amazon, its wonderful range of own-brand devices take the center stage and you can find some of the best prices ever on the Echo, Fire HD, and Kindle range right now, as well as some bonus deals on security devices - which are available up until September 1st.

Highlights include the Amazon Echo Dot (3rd gen) for just £29.99 (was £49.99) - a return to its usual sale price, but an absolute steal on one of the most useful small form-factor smart speakers you can buy. It's bigger brother the Amazon Echo (3rd gen) is also going for just £54.99 (was £89.99) right now, which is another fantastic price on a slightly more premium (but still cheap) smart speaker. Both of these work wonderfully in any kitchen, living room or hallway, and are a great cost-effective way to get smart home functionality into your home for less.

On the hunt for a cheap tablet? Check out the new Amazon Fire HD 8, which is on sale for £64.99 (was £89.99) right now in a return to its lowest price ever. Not only are you saving yourself £25 here, but you're also picking up a tablet with 12-hours of battery life, 32GB of expandable internal storage, and a 2.0Ghz quad-core processor. This one's a top pick if you just need a tablet for browsing, streaming and shopping as it's pretty nippy considering the price, and you can always pick up a cheap external SD card for more storage.

That's not all that's on sale this week, however. There's plenty more on offer, including some games consoles, TV's and smartwatch deals, which we've rounded up just down below.
