Best Deals Before Prime Day 2020: Echo Dot, Nintendo Switch, and iPad Sales

With Prime Day deals arriving as soon as next week and Black Friday sales quickly following, right now might seem like a weird time to buy anything online. But if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that things can sell out very quickly when everyone is shopping for them.

We saw it happen with toilet paper in March and more recently with Xbox Series X and PS5 pre-orders selling out almost instantly. So if you see a deal on Amazon you like today, it may behoove you to buy now before it’s gone.

Here are the best deals we’ve found ahead of Amazon Prime Day:

2 Echo Dots — $40

As part of Amazon’s early Prime Day deals event, you can currently get two 3rd generation Echo Dots for just $40. You must be an Amazon Prime member and use the code DOTPRIME2PK at checkout to be eligible for this promotion.

This is one of the best deals you’re going to see during Prime Day on these Amazon devices, so if you’re planning on taking advantage of this 2 for 1 offer, there’s no need to wait. With built-in Alexa integration, these smart speakers are a great addition to any smart home — especially if you want coverage in multiple rooms.

Nintendo Switch — $295

Nintendo Switch

While this isn’t exactly a deal in the traditional sense of the word, we’ve gone through enough buying holidays to know that Switch prices are most likely going to skyrocket faster than you’d expect. Chances are there aren’t going to be many Switch deals on Prime Day, so this $5 discount on the console is worth your consideration now.

This particular model doesn’t come with any extra bells and whistles, however, so if you’re hoping to grab a bundle with one of the best Switch games attached, you may want to wait.

iPad Mini (Latest Model) — $350

When it comes to iPad deals, prices fluctuate fairly regularly. We will likely see some pretty decent Prime Day iPad sales this year, but like most Apple discounts, they likely won’t be very substantial price cuts.

So if you were already planning on buying an iPad Mini this year, a $49 discount on this 64GB version is worth looking into.

TCL 50-inch 4K Smart TV — $280

4K TV deals are a lot more ubiquitous than they used to be. If you’ve waited out quarantine with an ancient television in hopes of finding a great Prime Day deal, there’s really no reason to keep waiting.

TCL offers some of the best TVs and some of the most affordable prices year round. This 50-inch 4K Roku TV is normally priced at $480 on amazon, but a solid $200 discount brings the price down to just $280.

Apple Watch Series 3 — $169

With Apple Watch Series 6 arriving this year, we’re already seeing some great Apple Watch deals on previous models. Though many of the older models of the smartwatch will likely receive some steeper discounts when Prime Day begins, there’s also a high likelihood Amazon will run out of stock.

All-in-all the Series 3 is a pretty decent watch. One thing to note about this particular model is that it only the GPS version. This means that it will connect to your phone, but will not be able to receive calls and texts on it’s own.
