This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

Amazon Prime Day officially begins on Tuesday, Oct. 13 in the UK and actually lasts for two days, though some deep discounts on huge numbers of products, including tech like headphonessmart speakerscamerasTVs and more, will last all week — and some notable deals are available now.

Amazon’s own devices (such as Kindle, Echo and Ring) always offer sure-fire bargains, but you can expect big deals on other brands including SonyBose, Toshiba and many others. As the name suggests, you have to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of the savings. 

But while the big Prime Day sale isn’t set to start until Tuesday, savvy UK shoppers can already find some great deals now and get an early start to their holiday shopping. Check out our picks of the best Amazon Prime Day deals below, and make sure to bookmark this page as we’ll be highlighting the best savings on all things tech throughout the week.

Note that pricing below assumes you have an Amazon Prime membership (£8 per month or £80 per year). Pricing was accurate at the time of publication but may fluctuate without warning. We’ll be updating this story with the best UK Prime Day deals we find going into next week.

The Echo Dot is Amazon’s smallest and most affordable smart speaker, making it a great option for adding Alexa voice control to any — or every — room in your house.

The Echo Show 5 is Amazon’s smallest smart display, which uses its voice assistant, Alexa to let you play videos, manage your calendar, show weather reports and so on. At only £45, it’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

With an 8-inch display, the Echo Show 8 provides functionality identical to its smaller sibling’s, but with a larger screen for more immersive video. Like the Echo Show 5, this discount is the biggest saving we’ve seen on this product.

The Blink Mini is one of the most affordable ways to add extra home security to your property. With a full HD resolution, night vision, microphones and motion detection, it provides a live feed to your phone to give you peace of mind when you’re away from home.

Available with either a battery or as a wired option, this outdoor security cam has a built-in, motion-activated LED light to scare off intruders, while providing a full HD video feed in real time to your phone.

If you’ve struggled to get a good Wi-Fi signal in the back bedroom of your house, then a mesh Wi-Fi system could help. By repeating the signal via the multiple base stations, your signal can extend much further around your house, providing a faster, more stable connection anywhere. This isn’t the fancy new Eero 6 system, but even the older model is a good option at this price.
