Amazon Prime Day 2019

The two biggest days of the year are coming. No, not your birthday and anniversary. Amazon Prime Day. Prime Days, actually, because this year Prime Day has been extended to July 15-16. But really it's even more than that, because we're already seeing products on sale, and things get interesting with Alexa even sooner.

There are so many deals on tap that we know of already — to say nothing of the surprises that are going to drop over the next few days — that we can't even begin to list them all here today. But try we shall.

And there are going to be all kinds of Prime Day deals that aspiring and veteran cord-cutters will want to take a look at. From new Fire TV devices to televisions and tablets and who knows what else.

So here's a quick look at what's coming up, and at what you need to know.

Get More Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day 2019

Prime Day starts early — if you already have Alexa

Starting on July 13, you'll be able to ask an Alexa-enabled device for a leg up in finding the latest deals. We can't tell you just what will get the early discount. But we can tell you how to find them.

Lots of devices are compatible with Voice Shopping, including the Amazon Shopping app for phones, but if you don't want to use it don't worry. In the past, Amazon has opened up the same (or quite similar) deals to everyone after the voice-exclusive period ended. This gives us a good idea of what pricing we can expect during the event on some of Amazon's hardware.

Prime Day best bet — Amazon Fire TV Stick

This one's kind of a no-brainer, right? Or course Amazon is going to have deep discounts of its own stuff on Prime Day.

Our best buy here is most definitely the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K. It's currently the Fire TV device we recommend for most folks because of its price (regularly $50, it'll cost just $24.99 on Prime Day), because it supports 4K resolution, and because it's the first Fire TV device to support both the Dolby Vision HDR standard as well as the Dolby Atmos audio standard.

That's a lot of future-proofing for just $25. In fact, we'd go ahead and buy a couple of these things.

If you want something just a little different, however, there's the Amazon Fire TV Cube. You still get the 4K resolution and Dolby Vision support, but you lose Dolby Atmos. On the other hand, it also has a built-in microphone array — and that means built-in Amazon Alexa. No having to hit a microphone button or use another device.

Better features, better remote, great price.

The new Fire TV Stick 4K adds Dolby Vision and a remote with proper volume and power controls to an already great Fire TV experience.

Amazon Fire TV Cube ($70 on Prime Day)

Fire TV with built-in Alexa

The FIre TV Cube is an odd little Fire TV, with 4K resolution and Dolby Vision, and a microphone array that lets Alexa always listen out for you.

The Echo Show is a fun Prime Day buy, too

Amazon also is discounting the Echo Show on Prime Day. It'll be down to $160, which isn't a bad price at all for it.

Why get the Echo Show? It's definitely not a full TV experience, but it's a great portal for Amazon Prime Video. And remember that YouTube is on its way back to it, which opens up a whole 'nother world of video.

Plus it's a proper Amazon Echo device, so Alexa is ready for you whenever, wherever. And the kids can play a bunch of games with it.

Alexa with a screen

A great second screen

The Amazon Echo Show gives you the best of Alexa, Amazon Prime Video, plus video calling and games, all in one handy device.

Fire HD tablets are a great inexpensive buy of Prime Day

Kids love tablets. Parents — whether they admit it or not — love babysitting their kids with tablets. The problem is that kids are kids, and kids drop things.

And if you want to give your kid a little (or a lot of) screen time and the videos that go along with it without breaking your wallet, there's the Amazon Fire HD tablet. It's got full access to the Amazon App Store and Amazon Prime Video, some great parental controls — and it's on sale this Prime Day, of course.

You've got a lot of options here. On the high end, the 10-inch Fire HD 10 is knocked down to $100. The 8-inch Fire HD 8 is just $50, and the 7-inch Fire HD 7 costs just $30.

They've got kids versions, too, running from $80 for the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition, or $60 for the 8-inch Fire HD 8 Kids Edition.

Not bad at all.

The tablets

Amazon Fire HD 10

Easy and inexpensive

Amazon Fire tablets — from 10 inches to 7 inches — are a great and inexpensive ways to get your video on, as well as use the latest apps.

Prime Day is a great day for a new TV

It seems like you can't hit a weekend without seeing a major sale on new televisions — but it's not like that's a bad thing, right? Same goes for TVs on Prime Day.

Amazon isn't giving up pricing just yet, but it does say that you'll be able to save up to 50 percent on select Sony LED smart TVs. That's good in and of itself, and Sony has long been the manufacturer of some high-quality sets.

One thing you need to know about Sony's new kits is that they have Android TV built in. It's a great television operating system and gives you access to everything Android TV has at its disposal, which includes more apps that you can count, Chromecast support built in — and it means fewer remotes. That's always a good thing.

Amazon also says to expect to "save big" on Samsung's 65-inch QLED TVs. That's Samsung's version of an LED TV, and the panels are pretty striking. Samsung has its own operating system built in, and it's plenty functional, with a host of apps at the ready. (And if you're using a Samsung phone, it's got a bunch of fun features to marry the two.)

Get Prime Day savings on Amazon Prime Video

There's a pretty good chance if you're reading this you already have an Amazon Prime subscription, and therefore you already have Amazon Prime Video. But you can take things farther than that with Amazon Prime Video Channels subscriptions. That's a mouthful that means if you have Prime Video, you can subscribe to premium services directly through it, billing right to your Amazon account.

And we've got a couple of Prime Day deals already announced.

First is that you'll be able to subscribe to Showtime or STARZ on Amazon Prime Video Channels and get 50 percent off for three months. That's not a bad deal at all.

And the same deal goes for a new subscription to CBS All Access, which is home to great originals like The Twilight Zone, Star Trek: Discovery, and the upcoming Star Trek: Picard. Plus it's got all of the other great CBS content you know and love.
