Buy an Echo Dot or Show 5 From $18 and Get a Free Smart Plug This Prime Day

These Echo device and smart plug bundles are no-brainer buys during the Prime Early Access Sale.

Amazon Echo Dot 3rd gen with Amazon smart plug

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET's guide to everything you need to know and how to find the best deals.

Amazon has launched a ton of Prime Day Echo and Fire device deals but you can make a couple of its cheapest deals an even better value now that the Prime Early Access Sale has begun. Amazon's third-gen Echo Dot smart speaker is already heavily discounted at just $18, but you can now snag it with an Amazon Smart Plug (worth $25) at no extra cost. Similarly, the Echo Show 5 smart display is down to $35 on its own or that same price with Amazon's first-party smart plug making the bundle a no-brainer. 

You can use the Echo Dot to ask Alexa to play music, answer questions, read the news, check the weather, set alarms, control compatible smart home devices, and more. All you need to do is plug in, open the Alexa app, and get started in minutes. The Echo Show 5 has a 5.5-inch smart display that can help you manage your day, connect to friends and more. You can also ask Alexa to show you movie trailers or the news. It is available in three color options: charcoal, deep sea blue and glacier white. 

Both of these bundles are some of the best deals you can find on Amazon right now. For other great deals, make sure to follow our Amazon Prime Day sale live blog.
