This story is part of, CNET's guide to everything you need to know and how to find the best deals.
It's a given that you'll find all sorts of deals on Amazon's Echoand during , a two-day sale that started Monday and runs through today. The best of the bunch are often the bundles, where you'll get said speaker or display packaged with a couple of additional gadgets that can connect with it right out of the box. Along with the bundled savings, you're getting additional value from those extra gadgets by bringing new capabilities to your Echo once you pair everything up.
I've listed the best bundles of the day below, and will update this rundown whenever I spot something new, or when deals expire.

Echo bundle deals live now
Let's start with a deal that offers significant savings on Amazon's Blink Outdoor security cameras. Buy a three-pack bundled with the new, second-gen Echo Show 5 smart display during Prime Day, and you'll knock more than 50% off of the total price. You'd normally need to spend more than $300 to get everything included here, and once it's all set up, you'll be able to check in on those outdoor cameras right from the smart display's screen -- just ask Alexa.
Similarly, you can get the new, second-gen version of Amazon's Echo Show 8 smart display bundled with a Blink Mini indoor camera for $105, which saves you $60 off of the full retail price of each. The Blink Mini isn't right for outdoor use like the cameras on the Echo Show 5 deal (and you're only getting one of them), but you will get a smart display with a noticeably bigger screen.
If you're willing to settle for the previous version of the Echo Show 5 (and there's really not much of a difference between the two), this bundle pairs it with a complete Wyze Cam outdoor camera starter kit, including the base station and two cameras. CNET's Rick Broida, better known as the Cheapskate, calls this one of the best deals of Prime Day, period -- like Rick, I use one of these cameras at my own home, and it works like a charm, letting me keep a close eye on the neighborhood porch cat as he comes and goes.
It's not the newest version of the Echo Dot (keep scrolling), but if you're willing to settle for the previous, puck-shaped version, you'll find it bundled with the Alexa-ready Wyze Lock for a total of $86 on Prime Day. That'll let you tell Alexa to lock the door when you're on your way to bed at night.
The Wyze Lock clamps onto your existing deadbolt and uses a built-in motor to turn it, and it usually sells for over $100 on its own. That makes this a pretty decent deal (and I promise, you really aren't missing much if your Echo isn't shaped like a ball).
OK, so maybe you want the newer Echo Dot that's shaped like a ball. Amazon's fourth-gen Echo Dot smart speaker (the spherical one) typically sells for $50 at full price, but it's not difficult to catch it on sale, sometimes for as much as half off. That's the case today, for Prime Day -- and on top of that, Amazon will throw in a Bluetooth smart bulb from Sengled that can pair with the speaker for voice-activated color changes.
Expired Echo bundle deals
Want a clock on that Dot? No problem -- just pay an additional $10 for the time, and get that same Sengled bulb tossed in, to boot.
(Note: This deal is now expired, but you can still buy the Echo Dot with Clock for $55 and get the Sengled bulb added in for free.)
