Amazon Prime Day - July 15-16

Amazon Prime Day starts Monday, and Amazon has now revealed (via press release) a list of which Amazon devices will be on sale, and what their prices will be. A few of these deals are already available, like the Echo Input for $15. (See below for more.)

There are plenty of price cuts, but this year's list is more about meeting past sales rather than beating them: while a few items beat Black Friday 2018 pricing, many others merely rival it, while some are priced a little higher. The Fire TV Cube, for example, will be $70, but it was $60 last November.

One notable outlier: The Facebook Portal (which features built-in Alexa, hence its inclusion in the "Amazon devices" list) will sell for $80, an all-time low. (It was briefly priced at $99 ahead of Mother's Day, but normally runs $199.)
...
Amazon says "select" device deals will hit the site a day early, on Sunday, July 14, at noon PT. And if you already own an Alexa-capable device, you can start asking "What are my deals?" as early as Saturday, July 13.

For the second year in a row, Amazon workers are planning to strike on Prime Day. In 2018, Amazon warehouse workers in Germany, Poland, and Spain went on strike during Prime Day; this year, fulfillment center workers in Minnesota have planned a similar strike, in part due to Amazon’s recent announcement that it would begin free one-day shipping.

You're killing me. Your eye for detail somehow keeps June up and you even add to the post. I keep thinking I'm missing something as my default switch is set to being wrong.
