It’s no secret that we love deal hunting at Mashable. On any given day, we’re scouring the web for the best discounts around — and Amazon regularly outshines the other mega retailers in the oversaturated shopping market with its highly competitive pricing.

If deal hunting isn’t your cup of tea, but you still love a good discount, we’ve got you covered. Here are the best Amazon deals of the day on May 6 to kick off your week with savings.

Our top pick

It’s not every day the Kindle Paperwhite goes on sale. In fact, at $114.99 as of May 6, this is the biggest discount the device has seen since Black Friday. Although it’s not the lowest discount to date, it’s likely the best price you’ll see until Prime Day in July. The Paperwhite is a “nearly perfect” device, according to Mashable’s Alex Perry. This 16GB model was released in late 2022 and doubled the capacity of the original model. In other words, it can fit thousands more books in its virtual library. Otherwise, the features are largely the same as the previous iteration: a 6.8-inch display that glows under any lighting, a waterproof design, an adjustable warm light, a 10-week battery life, and a flawless form factor fit for one-handed readers. Overall, our reviewer dubbed it an “elegant e-reader that is enjoyable to use.”

Beats Studio Buds

at Amazon

Save $70.00

If you’re searching for a solid pair of noise-cancelling earbuds that won’t break the bank, the Beats Studio Buds will make a great summer travel companion. Mashable tech reporter Alex Perry called them “Apple’s new go-to entry-level earbuds” when they first came out in 2021, claiming they “put entry-level AirPods to shame.” They’re equipped with decent ANC, transparency mode, spatial audio, a 24-hour battery life (thanks to the included charging case), comfortable eartips in a variety of sizes, and compatibility with both Apple and Android devices. They’re no longer the latest or greatest Beats earbuds, but they still have a lot to offer. And at just $79.95, they’re back at their lowest price to date. That’s 47% in savings.

Echo Show 8

at Amazon

Save $50.00

Released in Oct. of 2023, the third-gen Echo Show 8 serves as a central smart hub for your home. Use it to control your lights and security cameras, make video calls, stream movies, jam out to your favorite tunes, or follow along with recipes while you cook. The third-gen device does everything better than the previous iteration, which we were also big fans of. It features a centered 13MP front camera for clearer calls, a dynamic interface that adjusts what’s on the screen based on how near or far you are to it, and spatial audio for more immersive listening. As of May 6, it’s on sale for just $99.99 — that’s 33% off its usual cost and just $10 shy of its all-time low.
