Did you know Amazon has a hidden section on their website that's devoted to secret sales on their own devices? It's true! 

On any given day, the retail giant might add (or remove) sales from this secret spot. We're talking major discounts on Echo smart-home devices, Fire TV video streamers and Fire tablets. If you’re looking to build out a smart home, upgrade with a new tablet, or just stockpile some e-books, you need to know about this page.

So what’s on sale right now? For one thing, Amazon’s top-rated Echo Show 5. Normally $80, it can be had here for just $45 — that's a 44 percent savings.

Amazon will give you free shipping too. But if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get so much more — access to new movies and TV shows, discounts at Whole Foods, exclusive sales and two-day shipping on many items. Not yet a member? Let's fix that: You can sign up for a free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

Plenty of folks have been resistant to e-readers. It's understandable; some people prefer the coziness of a paper book to the brightness of a screen. Well, the Kindle Paperwhite has been making converts out of many of the screen-resistant. Why? Because it mimics so well the experience of reading a book. 

The Kindle Paperwhite has a flush-front design and a glare-free display that reads like real paper; there's no brutal blue-light glare or bulky, blocky tablet casing. It lets you carry a full library in a single, slender system, but still enjoy the relaxing feeling you get with a physical book. And now that the Kindle Paperwhite has a waterproof design, it may even beat out the classic paperback as the ideal beach read.

"I am an avid reader and adore the new paperwhite! To me, it’s the perfect reader. No light bleed thru, easy to control the amount of backlight, easy to download books and simply just easy to read my books," one five-star reviewer said.

Another declared: "This is the best Kindle ever. If you are searching for a great reading device then this is the one you want!"
