Did you miss the Prime Day deal on Amazon last week? We’ve got good news: Some of Amazon’s best deals are back … but this time on Best Buy. The 60-hour sale began at 10 am Tuesday and runs until 10 pm Thursday. It mostly started with Echo speakers and displays (listed below), but by Wednesday morning, more Prime Days returned to Best Buy’s shelves at lower prices. To be clear, all these Amazon devices are now available on Best Buy which is what you would pay appropriately on Amazon. Many of these discounts are available Home depot, Too.

The listed savings are compared to the prices on Amazon at the time of this writing. As always, prices and inventories are subject to change.

You don’t want to see anything here? Don’t worry – more sales are coming, including Black friday and cyber monday.

If you want a display for video chatting, watching Netflix, or using it as a smart alarm clock, Show 5 – Amazon’s smallest smart display – is a very small gadget. On Prime Day last year, the Echo Show 5 was down to $ 50. This year, it went as low as $ 45, and Best Buy is now matching that price if you missed it last week. Read our Echo Show 5 review.

Typically a ring video doorbell runs for $ 200, and the Echo Show 5 Smart Display goes for $ 90. The same bundle is currently selling for $ 275 on Amazon. But Best Buy is offering doorbells for $ 140, and toss in smart displays for only $ 10. If you want to jump-start a smart home around a video doorbell, this deal is one of the best you can find.

If you still drag live TV to air, you can record the shows and watch them at any time with the Fire TV Recast DVR. This version has a 500GB hard drive with two tuners (a full 1TB version is also available), so you can record two shows simultaneously.

Amazon’s largest, tallest and best-looking speaker is your choice for a smart speaker that needs to fill a room. It works brilliantly with a range of action films to music. It also supports Dolby Atmos and Fire TV. This speaker is likely to please almost anyone (with the exception of dedicated audiophiles).

Amazon Echo Auto is a clever little device that ports the Alexa to your car, allowing the voice assistant to speak and play music through your stereo. At $ 30, the Eco Auto is a solid deal for anyone who wants to make their non-voice-equipped car smarter.
