PhotoIn a sneak preview released Friday, Amazon revealed what will be on sale during its 48-hour Prime Day sales extravaganza. The e-commerce giant said it will be slashing prices on many of its own devices and in-house brands during the event, which is set to kick off Monday. 

An Amazon Echo will cost $49.99, which is half off its normal price of $99.99. Consumers who don’t want to wait until Monday to purchase an Echo will find that the device is already selling for $69.99 ahead of Prime Day.

A Fire TV Stick 4K will cost $25 starting Monday, and the Fire TV Cube will drop to $69.99 -- $50 less than its current price of $119.99. Amazon is also cutting the price of its Fire tablets. The Fire HD 10 will cost $99.99, which is $50 less than its current price of $149.99. 

Prime members will also be able to save on Amazon’s Fire and Kindle tablets. Fire tablets will start at $30, the new Kindle Paperwhite will be listed for up to $50 off, and the latest Kindle will go for $50 -- $30 less than its normal price of $80.
