Predictably, some of the best deals to be found on Amazon Prime Day are for the company’s own smart home devices. While you can usually find impressive deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s Prime Day that offers the biggest bargains. This year is no different, Amazon is blowing out Echo and other devices at all-time low prices.

Here are the best deals:

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) with 6 Months of Amazon Music Unlimited

This is the big one, arguably the best deal for the entire Prime Day Event. Amazon’s 3rd generation Echo Dot is a very capable little smart device. It’s perfect for interacting with Alexa, doing all the smart speaker things you love to do (set timers, listen to podcasts, ask for weather updates). And the speaker is good enough that it’s great for listening to streaming music. That’s why Amazon Music Unlimited is a great companion subscription to the Echo Dot. With it, you can listen to almost anything you can think of. For an all-time-low price of $16.79, you get six months of free music and a top-of-the-line smart assistant for over 88% off what you’d pay at retail. There won’t be another deal this good on Dots for a while.

Echo Plus (2nd Gen) with Philips Hue Bulb

If you’re looking for an Echo with a little more “oomph,” I recommend grabbing this smart home bundle. The 2nd Gen Echo Plus has the same friendly aesthetic of the 3rd Gen Dot, but with a lot more audio power. Plus, if you get the Dot deal as well, you can also use it to stream unlimited music. Included with the Echo Plus is a Philips Hue smart bulb. Just screw it in, ask Alexa to find your devices, and you’ll be controlling the light in no time. (One caveat: if you want to do anything trickier than turning the light on or off, you’ll have to eventually get a Hue Bridge as well.) At 43% off, this is a solid deal.

Fire TV Stick

Did you ever miss a shopping deal for the Fire TV Stick? No worries, now you can get a 63%-off deal on Amazon’s plug-in streaming device. At just $14.99, this is the lowest price it’s ever been—by quite a bit, actually. All the Fire TV Stick needs is an HDMI port and you can turn you old-school TV into a smart streaming device. The Alexa voice remote alone is worth it at this price (and, in fact, has been sold for more on its own in the past.) If you want to get the most out of your Prime membership, you should have at least one.
