When it comes to the Echo smart speakers, Amazon has a slew of devices to choose from, one for practically every occasion. For example, maybe you simply want to add Alexa to a room, or you are looking for an Echo device that will allow you to easily manage your other smart home products. Regardless of the reason, these are the best Echo deals available right now.
Late last year, Amazon released the fourth generation of the Echo Dot, which looks more like a sphere than an actual dot. But if you prefer the previous design, don’t worry: Amazon has not discontinued the third-gen Echo Dot, which still retains the familiar dot shape.
During Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we saw the fourth-gen Echo Dot go down to its lowest price of $30. However, it’s currently only available at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target for $50. There is also a model with a built-in LED display to show the time, weather, and other information that is available for $60, which is the typical retail price.
The fourth-gen Echo Dot Kids Edition is as spherical as its adult version but is designed to look like a tiger or panda. The device also comes with a year of Amazon’s Kid Plus service, which provides access to a slew of kid-friendly content, like audiobooks and games.
We have seen this product go down to $40, but, unfortunately, it’s currently only available for its usual price of $60 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. Amazon is selling a discounted bundle for $75, though, which includes an Echo Dot Kids Edition plus an Echo Glow.
The fourth-gen Amazon Echo smart home hub has also gotten an updated look. Like the fourth-gen Echo Dot, the 2020 Amazon Echo has a sphere-shaped design, but it’s noticeably bigger than the Echo Dot.
If you are looking for a pair of Amazon Echo devices, Best Buy is selling an Amazon Echo two-pack for $180, which knocks $20 off its normal retail price.
If you’re interested in an Alexa smart speaker with better audio quality and Dolby Atmos support, the Echo Studio is the Amazon product to check out.
If you are looking for a compact Echo device that functions more as a smart clock than an entertainment speaker, the Echo Show 5 is the one to consider, especially since Amazon recently announced that it would begin outfitting the device with an improved 2MP camera. Like the last-gen model, the latest edition, set to arrive in June, features an always-on microphone, a 5.5-inch display, and a physical shutter, allowing you to block the camera’s view. It’s currently available for preorder at Amazon and Best Buy for $84.99.
In wake of the news, Amazon has reduced the price of the last-gen Echo Show 5. The first-gen model used to retail for $90, and we have seen it drop to as low as $45. But for a limited time, it’s on sale at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target for $50.
Amazon also has a few bundles available for the first-gen model; you can get an Echo Show 5 and three months of Amazon Kids Plus for $51, an Echo Show 5 and a 1080p Wi-Fi security camera for $60, and an Echo Show 5 plus an adjustable stand for $70. You can also preorder the second-gen Echo Show 5 with the same security camera for $95, a $25 discount, or an Echo Show 5 with an adjustable stand for $105.
Best Buy is currently selling a bundle with the first-gen Echo Show 5 and a 1080p Wi-Fi security camera for $60.
Echo Show 5 Kids Edition
The Echo Dot isn’t the only Echo device with a kid-friendly design. The Echo Show 5 Kids Edition offers all of the same features as the standard, second-gen Echo Show 5, only with a vibrant print on the rear and a year of Amazon’s Kid Plus service, which grants your family access to a trove of videos, games, and other kid-friendly content. It even comes with a two-year warranty, providing a bit of protection from whatever your child might (literally) throw at it.
Available in June, the Echo Show 5 Kids Edition is currently available for preorder from Amazon and Best Buy for $95. If you’re looking for add-ons, you can also preorder an Echo Show 5 Kids Edition with an adjustable stand for $115 or an Echo Show 5 Kids Edition with an Echo Glow for $110, a $15 discount, through Amazon.
Like the Echo Show 5, the Echo Show 8 will soon be available in two distinct models. Both feature 8-inch displays and dual speakers. However, unlike the first-gen Echo Show 8, the forthcoming model sports a 13-megapixel camera and some unique software tricks, one of which grants it the ability to keep the subject centered in the frame as they move around.
When pitted against the Google Nest Hub, their closest competitor in terms of price and functionality, both iterations of the Echo Show 8 are better options for a few reasons: they feature slightly larger displays, better speakers, and cameras that allow you to use them as video chatting devices for Zoom calls.
We have seen the first-gen Show 8 go as low as $65. However, it’s currently on sale for $110 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. There are also a few bundles available for a few dollars more. For $120, you can get a first-gen Echo Show 8 and a 1080 Wi-Fi security camera, or a first-gen Echo Show 8 with an adjustable stand for $135.
If you prefer to opt for the newer Echo Show 8, you can preorder the device at Amazon before it arrives in June for $130.
Recently, Amazon released a third-generation Echo Show 10. This device features a 10.1-inch HD screen and, unlike the Show 5 and 8, this model allows you to adjust the angle of the screen. It’s also mounted on a motorized swiveling base that lets the screen follow you as you move. If you plan on doing a lot of video calling, this is the model to get.
We have seen the latest Echo Show 10 get discounted as low as $200, but no active deals are available right now. But if you want to buy this product, you can get it for its usual $250 price at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target.
