You don’t need to ask Alexa how to get an Amazon Echo deal on Prime Day – we’ve found one
Alexa might be able to answer that, but so can we! And these are the two deals worth knowing about in the Prime Day sale.
Amazon Echo dot (4th gen): Was £49.99, now £24.99, Amazon.co.uk
We can vouch for its performance since it featured in our review of the best smart speakers, and The Independent‘s technology critic David Phelan praised this revamped version of Amazon’s main smart speaker line for being “the business”. He added that it “produces great sound and slots nicely into the Amazon ecosystem”.
Amazon Echo dot (3rd gen): Was £39.99, now £19.99, Amazon.co.uk
If you’re looking for affordable ways to introduce some smart tech into your home, this speaker is for you – especially now it’s only £19.99. It’s one of the best value and smallest options available and can do all the Alexa features you’d expect, from playing the radio and your favourite playlist to answering trivia questions. Plus, it also makes a good alarm clock.
We’ve just found the best Prime Day offer on Asus laptops
Laptops can be expensive, but affordable brand Asus has just been reduced in Amazon’s final push to help you bag a bargain – and these are the best deals out there:

Just 3 hours left to save on CeraVe in Prime Day sale
PSA: CeraVe is currently reduced by 30 per cent – and as its products are affordable as it is, Amazon’s only gone and made them even more pocket-friendly. And we’re here for it.
Unsure what to buy? We’ve just added the CeraVe AM facial moisturising lotion (was £13, now £6.82, Amazon.co.uk) and the CeraVe hydrating hyaluronic acid serum (was £17, now £11.90, Amazon.co.uk) to our basket. But, the cleanser is also a firm favourite.
CeraVe hydrating cleanser: Was £7.11, now £4.98, Amazon.co.uk
This took the top spot in our review of the best CeraVe products, with our writer noting that it’s “rich in ceramides and hyaluronic acid which work together to protect the skin barrier and retain moisture”. It’s our reviewer’s “go-to cleanser when acne medication often leaves skin dry, rough, tight and generally uncomfortable”. But, it’s “calming too”.
“Basic but brilliant, it’s a great first step in any skincare routine”, and for under £5, this is a no-brainer.
You’ll sleep easy with 50% off this Emma mattress
Emma original double mattress: Was £699, now £340.73, Amazon.co.uk
Woah – one of our favourite bed-in-a-box brands has been reduced by 50 per cent! The medium-firm mattress “suits all body shapes and types of sleepers… and there’s no disturbance to your partner if you’re a fidgety sleeper”, noted our writer in our guide to the best mattresses.
Impressed with its bounce and instant comfort, our tester noted it was one of the most durable foam mattresses they tested. And you can’t argue with our vigorous testing. It’s currently half price, as is the king size mattress (was £799, now £393.66, Amazon.co.uk), so now’s the time to upgrade your sleep set-up. You won’t regret it!
Cook up a storm with 40% off this slow cooker for Amazon Prime Day
Morphy Richards sear and stew digital slow cooker: Was £56.99, £35.99, Amazon.co.uk
This 3.5l digital slow cooker could make a tasty chilli con carne. The bigger version of this model also featured in our best slow cooker guide – voted as the best option for searing meat – with our reviewer noting “you can use the pot on the hob to sear first and it comes with some delicious recipes”. With three heat settings and a shatterproof cooking pot, this slow cooker seems like a bargain with almost 40 per cent off.
