Did you know Amazon has a hidden section devoted to secret sales on its own devices? It's true!

On any given day, the retail giant adds and removes sales from this secret hub on a handful of Echo smart devices, Fire TV video streamers and Kindle e-readers — and the savings are great! If you’re looking to build out a smart home or just want to read mountains of e-books on one device, you need to know about this page.

And Amazon will give you free shipping too. But if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get so much more — from access to new movies and TV shows, discounts at Whole Foods, exclusive sales and two-day shipping on many, many items. Not yet a member? Let's fix that: You can sign up for a free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

Check out our favorite finds below, and shop the rest of the secret sales on Amazon devices here.

Normally priced at $50, the Echo Dot is a small but mighty speaker that can stream tunes from Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, Sirius XM and more with an all-new sphere design. Alexa is included, of course, and you can always ask her for the latest news, weather and sports updates. Plus you can use your Echo Dot to control other smart home devices with the sound of your voice.

“This is exactly what I was looking for,” raved a happy Amazon shopper. “The sound is loud and clear. Now I am able to hear all online stations with no interference. The design is space-saving, with rubber underneath to prevent sliding.”

This Blink Outdoor 2 camera kit and Blink Mini bundle is currently over 40% off! The Blink Outdoor camera is a great solution for those who want a HD security camera to monitor their surroundings but don’t want to hassle with installation. That’s because the Blink cameras are wireless and completely battery-operated! They can actually last up to two years on two AA lithium batteries. The Outdoor version is built to withstand the elements like rain.

“This new camera is better then the Blink xt2 !” said one reviewer. “It has been totally re-engineered. Take it from someone who owns all the different cameras Blink had to offer since day one...Also noticed the sound is much louder and more clear than the other cameras..."

The Blink Mini can be set up within minutes, and provides a clear detailed view day or night. It works with any Alexa devices, so you can use your voice to view a live feed or arm/disarm the camera. Motion alerts are sent to your phone. You can even customize motion detection zones (say, if you want to be alerted when those raccoons start messing with your trash cans). At this price, you can grab a few.

A pleased user, who says they rarely write reviews, reports: “The setup was a breeze, up and running in 30 seconds. The app is responsive and user friendly. My WiFi is slow, but it still loaded a 1080p HD quality view when I accessed it from my mobile app. My favorite feature is the night vision. All my previous cameras just showed a dark room or shadows but this camera shows a clear and crisp picture in pitch black darkness.”

And man it’s so much larger. I love it. I can see the descriptions under tv shows. Super easy to set up. Almost no cords other then the ones for my DVD player and switch dock. Great picture and sound is amazing."
