Amazon Prime Day will be here next week, and while it’s a great time to score savings on top products (like Amazon’s brand new Echo Spot alarm clock) and expensive purchases that you’ve been eyeing for a while, it’s also just as good a time to grab some more affordable items. 

That’s why we’ve rounded up the best early Amazon Prime Day 2024 deals under $50, so you can save your cash while sweeping up already-affordable buys on tech, home, and lifestyle products. We’ll be updating this list frequently heading into Prime Day on July 16 and multiple times per day throughout the savings event, so be sure to check back here before you check out online.

Amazon’s brand-new Echo Spot alarm clock is now 40% off for Prime members. Meant to function much like a clock radio, the Echo Spot features a small screen that takes up about two-thirds of the front, with the speaker occupying the bottom chin area. The screen can display the time with customizable clock faces, alarms, weather, song titles, and even some Alexa illustrations triggered by specific commands.

These smart plugs do it all, including a handy energy-moderating feature that shows you the consumption of everything connected to this plug via the app. Kasa plugs are handy in ZDNET’s Maria Diaz’s home. 

  • Current price: $50
  • Original price: $90

Amazon’s Echo Show 5 (3rd Gen) is also seeing a great discount right now. You can save $40 and grab it for just $50, and set up your smart home display. The Echo Show is Alexa compatible, doubles as a speaker and display, and is able to be integrated with the rest of your Alexa smart home system.

Right now, you can grab two of Blink’s indoor security cameras. They feature 1080p HD video, night vision, motion detection, two-way audio, and are Alexa-compatible. Plus, they make great cameras for pets, kids, and more.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024? 

Amazon Prime Day 2024 will begin July 16 at 12:01 a.m. PDT and run through July 17. 

Are deals really better on Prime Day? 

Prices on Amazon are typically lower on Prime Day, especially on big-ticket items like TVs, Amazon devices, laptops, and more. However, it’s also a great time to score savings on everyday essentials and products that are already budget-friendly. You can also save on deals during other Amazon events, like Prime Big Deal Days in October and the Big Spring Sale in March, but savings often aren’t as great as during July Prime Day. 

How did we choose these Prime Day deals?

ZDNET only writes about deals we want to buy — devices and products we desire, need, or would recommend. Our experts looked for deals that were at least 20% off (or are hardly ever on sale), using established price comparison tools and trackers to determine whether the deal is actually on sale and how frequently it drops. 

We also looked over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the deals we’re recommending. Our recommendations may also be based on our own testing — in addition to extensive research and comparison shopping. The goal is to deliver the most accurate advice to help you shop smarter.
