There’s nothing better than a good sale. Actually, that’s not entirely true. The only thing better than a good sale is a good private sale that offers deep discounts not everyone has access to. It’s OK to admit it, don’t be ashamed. Everyone loves a little exclusivity here and there.

On Wednesday, Amazon announced an exclusive new program that only Prime members have access to. It gives you deep discounts on two hot new Android phones that are already quite affordable. First up, the just-announced Moto G4, which is a tremendous value at its full $200 retail price but can be had for just $125 in this sale. Then you’ve got the BLU R1 HD, a quad-core Android phone that costs just $50 with this sale.

It’s worth noting that there’s a caveat with these new deals. For some it will be a deal-breaker, while others won’t care at all. As is the case with the Kindle deals Amazon offers, smartphones included in this new series of Prime-only bargains will feature targeted advertisements on the lock screen. Ads won’t be present anywhere else on the phone, so it’s really not too invasive.

Here’s what you need to know about the Moto G4, which you can preorder today ahead of its release on July 12:

  • Fast 4G LTE speed, an up to 1.5 GHz octa-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a bright 5.5″ full HD (1080p) display ensures videos and games run smoothly and look great
  • Enjoy the best of Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow, including Google Maps, Gmail, Play Store, and more
  • Offers and ads, including personalized deals and recommendations, display on the phone’s lockscreen
  • Take brilliant photos with the 13 MP HD camera or snap group shots with a 5 MP wide-angle selfie cam. Add up to 128 GB of additional storage with a microSD card
  • The all-day battery includes TurboPower charging which provides up to 6 hours of use in just 15 minutes
  • Unlocked and carrier-friendly, works with all major carrier networks domestically or abroad (including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon)

And here are the key specs for the BLU R1 HD:

  • Fast 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek 6735 ARM Cortex processor with 8 GB Internal memory and 1 GB RAM
  • Enjoy the best of Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow, including Google Maps, Gmail, Play Store, and more
  • Offers and ads, including personalized deals and recommendations, display on the phone’s lockscreen
  • Dual SIM and MicroSD support for up to 64 GB of expandable storage
  • Stunning 5″ HD display with curved Gorilla Glass 3 protection, plus an 8 MP main camera and 5 MP selfie camera that includes a front-facing LED flash
  • 4G LTE plus GSM unlocked for your favorite compatible carrier or for international travel (including AT&T, T-Mobile; not compatible with Verizon or Sprint)
