Amazon deals of the day: Omni Fire TV, Blink Outdoor 4, Fire HD 8 Plus tablet, Samsung Galaxy Book4 Pro, and more


Amazon has already hit send on some of the biggest price drops of the year. Between its 4th of July sale and early Prime Day savings, the deals are overflowing this week. On July 2, we’re seeing record-low prices on Fire devices, Blink cameras, and more. There’s really no need to wait for Prime Day if you’re in the mood to do some deal shopping.

Here are our top picks for the best Amazon deals of the day. Be sure to check back at our deals from July 1 — many of those are still live. Then come back tomorrow for all-new picks.

Our top pick

If you’re in the market for a new TV and you’re a Prime member, you can snag a 75-inch Omni Fire TV for only $699.99 ahead of Prime Day. That’s 33% in savings and its lowest price on record. As the second-best TV in Amazon’s lineup, the Omni offers 4K everyday entertainment, hands-free Alexa control, Dolby Vision, Dolby Digital Plus, and a slimmer bezel for the ultimate home theater experience. It even comes with a six-month subscription to MGM+.

The Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus is a solid option if you’re looking for a basic tablet that won’t break the bank. As PCMag (which is owned by Mashable’s publisher, Ziff Davis) wrote in its review of the tablet, “It won’t wow you, but it doesn’t need to.” It’ll last up to 13 hours on a single charge, offers USB-C charging support, and features a strengthened aluminosilicate glass display and hexa-core processor (which is 30% faster than the previous model). The Plus model also adds an extra gigabyte of RAM, improves its rear camera from 2 to 5MP, and supports wireless charging. With this bundle, you’ll get both the tablet and wireless charging dock, which allows you to set it up as a countertop smart display in Show Mode. As of July 2, the bundle is down to just $84.99 — that’s a savings of 50% and a new record-low price.

In your battle against pet hair, you’re going to need quite a few weapons in your arsenal. The Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro Plus makes a good addition, as its cordless, lightweight design makes it a breeze to slide into hard-to-reach places. It features two ultra-powerful cyclonic air streams for intense suction, plus a detachable self-cleaning Pet Power Brush that eliminates hair wrap from the floor, upholstery, and the brushroll itself. It’s usually $89.99, but you can save 22% and pick it up for $69.99 as of July 2. That’s just $2 away from its all-time low.

One of our top picks for a security camera, the Blink Outdoor 4 is an affordable home addition for pet owners, frequent travelers, or just about any homeowner or renter looking to keep an eye on things that go bump in the night. Its battery life is hard to beat — just pop in some AAs and you won’t have to worry about changing them for two whole years. The fourth-generation Blink Outdoor also works seamlessly with other Alexa-enabled devices, comes with customizable motion zones without the need for a subscription (although, a Blink subscription will unlock even more features), and features 1080p HD live view, infrared night vision, and crisp two-way audio. A four-pack is usually $339.99, but you can save 61% ahead of Prime Day and snag it for only $132.99 with Prime — practically a steal.

Released in February this year, the Samsung Galaxy Book4 Pro is back down to its record-low price of $1,149.99. That’s $300 off the 14-inch model with 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD. It’s a traditional clamshell-style laptop with all the bells and whistles — an Intel Core Ultra 7 155H CPU with Intel Arc Graphics, a 3K AMOLED touchscreen, AKG Quad speakers, a new Knox security chip, and 18 hours of battery life per charge. Plus, it only weighs 2.71 pounds.
