is happening now, so start your engines with our big roundup of . Feeling especially thrifty? Below I’ve rounded up some top picks in the under-$25 category — familiar items like the 3rd-gen Echo Dot ($22), but a few surprises as well. Before you dive in, make sure to get acquainted with our .
One of my favorite super-cheap deals:. Regular price: $25. The catch: You have to use an Alexa device to order it. (Actually, that’s a catch only if you don’t already have an Alexa device. Otherwise it’s a breeze: “Alexa, order an Amazon Smart Plug.” Done.)
And in case you missed them, here’s a smattering of early Prime Day deals (all under $25, natch) that rolled out earlier this week and are still available:
Now let’s take a look at some super-cheap Prime Day deals you might not know about. This post will be updated often, so be sure to bookmark it and check back daily!

Tile via Amazon
This is the newest Tile Pro, the one with the replaceable battery and better range and louder ringer. And this is the lowest price to date on a single; usually have to buy a 2- or 4-pack to get anywhere near this price.
The perfect travel pillow is in the eye of the beholder — or, more accurately, the neck of the sleeper. Bcozzy’s clever design lets you put extra support where you need it: under your chin or on either side of your head. This is a rare discount.
Available for iPhones and Galaxy phones, the Grip2u Boost cases offer three great amenities: protection (natch), an interchangeable rubber strap for easier gripping and a built-in kickstand. They normally run $30-35, but promo code CELEBRATE50 cuts their prices in half.
These were already a pretty good deal, but promo code 20PDAMZC puts them below the $25 threshold. These outlets can be controlled by app and/or Alexa and Google Assistant — no hub required.
Essential gear for any beach, pool or boat outing, these pouches promise to keep your phone dry while still letting you use it. Clip the on-page 5%-off coupon, then apply promo code SRB7LB65 at checkout. (Note: We had at least one instance of seeing a final price closer to $7, but still far below $25 total.)
If you have access to 4K content (and a 4K TV, natch), it’s worth spending an extra $10 to get the Fire TV Stick 4K. Otherwise, the non-4K Fire Stick is an unbelievable bargain at $15.
This is an all-time low for Amazon’s entry-level streaming stick, which was $25 last Black Friday.
Ben Fox Rubin/CNET
This is the lowest price ever for the 2018 Echo Dot, down from $25 earlier.
Rarely on sale and a top-rated choice for two-factor authentication, the Yubico key plugs into your laptop’s USB port or uses your phone’s NFC.
No longer available for under $25
Guaranteed to sell out quickly, this deal feels a little too good to be true. The Soundcore Select is your basic black Bluetooth brick (the blue one is indeed sold out already), but water-resistant and with a fairly incredible 24-hour battery. It even supports NFC pairing.
Take note that unless it’s available for in-store pickup, shipping will cost extra unless you spend at least $35.
