Amazon reported Prime Day was bigger than ever, exceeding the combined sales of last year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Despite Prime Day’s blazing success, we’d never expect Amazon to sit back to let the embers cool, and they didn’t disappoint. Amazon just threw more fuel on the retail fires with a hot deal on an annual Audible audiobook membership

Here’s how the limited-time Audible Annual Membership deal works: Sign up for a one-year membership for $119.50, $30 less than the usual $149.50 cost. In addition to the 20% savings on the annual membership, you can pick 12 audiobooks right from the start. As part of this deal, you will also receive credit from Amazon to purchase a third-generation Echo Dot smart speaker for only $0.99. At the end of the first membership year, you will be billed $149.50 annually to continue your membership unless or until you cancel.

If you’re an avid audiobook listener, Audible is the way to go. You can listen to your books anywhere, anytime with the free Audible app on iOS and Android devices, Alexa-enabled smart home devices, and Kindles.

During your Audible membership, you receive annual Audible credits. You can exchange an Audible credit for a single-volume Audible book up to one year from the date the credit was issued, as long as you maintain an active membership. If you cancel your membership, you can keep all audiobooks you received

If you are not happy with an audiobook for any reason, you can exchange it for another audio title up to 365 from the date you received the audiobook.

In addition to the regular audiobooks, each month Audible members get to choose two audiobooks from a selection of six Audible Originals. Audible Originals are audiobooks produced exclusively for Audible members.

If you have the good fortune to be able to spend even more time listening to audiobooks, be aware that members can purchase additional audiobooks at a standing 30% discount from normal list prices.

Regularly priced at $149.50 per year, the Audible annual membership is just $119.50 with this deal. With the membership, you can choose 12 audiobooks immediately when you start, and also receive a credit to redeem for a third-generation Echo Dot for $0.99. Audible monthly memberships cost $14.95 per month, so the annual membership saves about almost $30. Adding the $30 discount during this limited time offer doubles the savings. Plus you get an Echo Dot for a buck minus a penny.

It's a fantastic $70 discount, meaning this device will pay for itself almost twice as fast as it would at full price. Check it out at Amazon while Prime Day deals are still live.

Why you should buy the SodaSteam E-Terra during Prime Day
Prime Day is a great time to buy appliances. Amazon is having fantastic price cuts on some of the most popular models, while competing retailers try to offer their own sales. Target is having Target Circle Week, for instance, which is cutting prices on lots of home appliances. But we're here to talk about the SodaStream E-Terra. SodaStream is the biggest brand name in the soda water biz, and this is one of their simplest carbonated water makers. The E-Terra comes with the basic SodaStream device, which has a thin profile that will fit on any counter, right next to a toaster and a Keurig. You also get a reusable, dishwasher-safe bottle for use when carbonating the water, and a free CO2 cannister. If you want fancier features, like the ability to make cocktails, consider a fancier model like the SodaStream Art.

This content was produced in partnership with ECOVACS
Amazon's Prime Day is back, and its own tech, devices, and gear aren't the only things worth shopping during the big event. This year there's a definite focus on more practical items, like cleaning supplies, food, and other items you might need -- but can get at an excellent discount -- as opposed to electronics like TVs, game consoles, tablets, and beyond. But one tech item that should be in every home is a smart cleaning solution, or rather a smart vacuum and mop combo, precisely like what ECOVACS offers. Each model is different, but for the most part they offer hands-free cleaning and maintenance so you can focus on your busy life, and not have to worry about all the messes that you leave behind, that your kids might make, or that your pets might create. In the interest of brevity, we've collected all of the best ECOVACS deals that are live as part of the event, and you can peruse those below.
