So whether you’re on the hunt for the best back-to-school savings or are hoping to get a head start on your Labor Day sales shopping, we rounded up some of the top deals on Amazon devices that you can score during the event.

Early Labor Day Amazon tech deals

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen)

No room in your house is truly complete without a smart speaker. After all, how else will you have spontaneous dance parties or ask Alexa for your daily trivia questions? With this Echo Dot, you can do all those things and more.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Streaming Device

Don't miss this deal on Amazon's popular Fire TV Stick streaming device. Not only does it provide "endless" entertainment, but reviewers also say it's easy to install, easy to use and "super user friendly."

Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen)

Meet your new nightstand companion, the Amazon Echo Show 5. It allows you to set alarms, check the weather, play podcasts and more. When you're not using it, you can set it to show all your favorite photos on the smart display.

Kindle with Built-in Front Light

Right now, you can save more than 30% on Amazon's Kindle reader. It's designed with adjustable brightness functionality, so you can read comfortably, no matter your environment. It's also said to have a long-lasting battery life, so you won't have to re-charge after just one day of reading — in fact, the brand says that it should last weeks at a time.

Kindle Paperwhite (8 GB)

If you're looking for an e-reader with a few more bells and whistles, consider the Kindle Paperwhite. According to the brand, this version features thinner borders, an adjustable warm light and faster page-turning capabilities. It's made to be waterproof, too, so you can read anywhere, from the pool to the bath.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus Tablet

Perfect for streaming movies or playing games, Amazon said that this tablet is its best 8-inch option for portable entertainment. It has wireless charging capabilities, and when you set it up on a compatible charging dock, it'll switch to "show mode" so you can use it hands-free to view recipes, queue up a TV show and more.

Amazon Fire 7 Tablet

You can also grab the Fire 7 Tablet for less than $45 during the sale. It's Alexa-enabled, so you can ask it to set a reminder, update your shopping list or play your favorite song. You can choose between three color options (black, denim and rose) and two storage capacities, 16 or 32 gigabytes.

Amazon Echo Glow

Back-to-school season is upon us, which means that it's time to get kids back into their regular routines. Thankfully, this smart lamp can serve as an alarm, gently waking up kids with gradually increasing light. But that's not all! They can also use it as a night light or reading lamp and customize the color and brightness to fit their space.

Amazon Kindle Kids

Help them foster a love for reading after school hours with this Kindle, which is designed especially for little readers. And for anyone who is reluctant to give their accident-prone kid their own device, you'll be happy to hear that it comes with a kid-friendly cover (to help protect it against spills and tumbles) and has a two-year worry-free guarantee, so if anything happens to the device, Amazon will replace it.

Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen)

With active noise cancellation, premium speakers and a sweat-resistant design, these small earbuds have everything you could want. They come with multiple wing tips and ear tips to help you customize your fit and get the best listening experience.

Amazon Fire TV 65"

Upgrade your home theater setup and score this Fire TV for more than $300 off. It supports both 4K Ultra HD and Dolby Vision, so you can watch shows and movie in bright color, contrast and clarity.

Amazon Halo View Fitness Tracker

When the kids go back to school, it's the perfect time to get back into your routine — and that includes jumping back into a regular workout schedule. And you'll love being able to track all your metrics with the Amazon Halo View. It allows you to monitor your steps, heart rate, sleep and more.

Amazon Smart Thermostat

There's a sweet, small period of time in fall, where we turn off our AC units and our energy bills go down — right before we have to crank up the heat and they skyrocket again. But this smart thermostat promises to help you save money and energy, so the colder months aren't so rough on your wallet. The device automatically adjusts the temperature of your house to suit your preferences. You can also set it to change the temperature when it senses that you're not home to cut down on energy usage.
