Prime Day 2018 doesn’t officially begin until 3:00 PM Eastern time today, but Amazon just surprised us all by kicking things off early. While the bulk of Amazon’s big Prime Day deals won’t be available until this afternoon, Prime Day sales on seven different Echo devices just hit Amazon’s site.

The star of the show is definitely the Echo Dot. Amazon’s tiniest and most affordable Alexa smart speaker goes on sale all the time, but only on Prime Day and Black Friday does Amazon slash a full $20 off the price of a Dot. That’s right folks, Echo Dots are just $29.99 right now for Prime Day 2018. Every other Echo device is also on sale right now as well, including the Echo, which drops to $69.99 from $99.99, and the Echo Plus, which is now $99.99 instead of $149.99.

Here’s a quick rundown of all the Alexa smart speaker deals Amazon’s running for Prime Day:
