Amazon’s current Echo lineup offers a broad selection of smart speakers and displays that can fit just about anywhere in your home. Whether you want to place a voice assistant in every room or simply a touchscreen-enabled model to showcase recipes in the kitchen, there’s an Echo device for just about every occasion and use case.
Regardless of why you might want one, there’s always a way to save on an Echo device, from the last-gen Echo Dot to Amazon’s latest Echo Show 10. Even when they’re selling for full price, Amazon offers a 25 percent discount when you trade in select devices, meaning there are still other ways to save money when none of the models are on sale.
The best Echo Dot deals
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 retains the familiar dot shape and retails for $39.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. The latter retailer is also currently offering $10 off the price of two — if you’re looking to outfit your home with multiple smart speakers — while Amazon is offering the third-gen Dot with a Sengled smart bulb for $47.98.
As for the latest Echo Dot, we saw it drop to an all-time low of $29.99 around Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Right now, however, it’s only available at Amazon, Target. and Best Buy for $49.99, its full retail price. The same retailers are also selling the model with a built-in LED display that showcases the time, weather, and other information for $10 more (Amazon, Target, Best Buy).
The best Echo Dot Kids Edition deals
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 Kids Plus service, which provides access to a slew of kid-friendly content, including audiobooks and games.
The Kids Edition is currently available for $59.99 at Amazon, its standard retail price. If you prefer a different retailer, Target and Best Buy are also selling the Kids Edition, though neither is offering a discount.
The best Amazon Echo deals
The fourth-gen Amazon Echo also received a makeover in 2020. Like the aforementioned fourth-gen Echo Dot, the latest Amazon Echo has a sphere-shaped design, but it’s noticeably bigger than the Echo Dot. That said, it also touts a built-in smart home hub and produces better sound, thanks to a pair of 0.8-inch tweeters and a 3-inch woofer.
Although we’ve seen the namesake Echo drop to as low as $60 during shopping events like Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday, it’s only available at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target right now for $79.99, its full retail price. If you bundle a pair, however, Best Buy is dropping the price of two to $190, a modest $10 off.
The best Amazon Echo Studio deals
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.
There are no deals currently available for the Echo Studio, but it is available for purchase at its usual price of $199.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. Amazon also offers a Billie Eilish Limited Edition Echo Studio with the singer’s image pasted on the side for $229.99.
The best Echo Show 5 deals
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 Echo device to consider. The latest edition, which launched in June, features an always-on microphone, an upgraded 2MP camera, a 5.5-inch display, and a physical shutter, allowing you to block the camera’s view.
The best Echo Show 5 Kids Edition deals
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 Kids 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.
The best Echo Show 8 deals
Like the Echo Show 5, the Echo Show 8 is available in two distinct models, both of which feature 8-inch displays and dual speakers. However, unlike the first-gen Echo Show 8, the new model is equipped with a 13MP 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 Home Hub and second-gen Nest Hub, their closest competitors 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. In fact, we found the Echo Show 8 to be better than other devices in Amazon’s current smart display lineup, which is why we think it’s the best smart display for most people.
As far as deals go, the first-gen Show 8 is currently available at Amazon and Best Buy for $69.99, a sizeable discount on its $109.99 price tag. Additionally, Amazon will throw in six months of Amazon Music Unlimited for select customers, and you can pick up a first-gen Echo Show 8 and a Blink Mini security camera for $94.99 ($50 off). Other bundles are also available at Amazon, including one with an adjustable stand for $90.98 ($40 off) and another that contains a base with an integrated battery for $119.98 ($40 off).
As for the second-gen Echo Show 8, it’s currently available at Amazon, and Best Buy for $99.99 — a cool $30 off the full retail price — or packaged with a Blink Mini for $134.99 (Amazon, Best Buy). Amazon is also selling two additional bundles, one with a battery base for $149.98 and another with an adjustable stand for $124.98, both of which are $30 off.
The best Echo Show 10 deals
Last year, Amazon released a third-gen Echo Show 10. The device features a 10.1-inch HD screen and, unlike the Show 5 and Show 8, the 2021 model allows you to adjust the angle of the screen. It’s also mounted on a motorized, swiveling base that allows the display to follow you as you move. If you plan on doing a lot of video calling, this is the model to get.
We’ve seen the latest Echo Show 10 get discounted to as low as $200, but no active deals are available right now. But if you still want to pick it up, you can get it right now for $249.99 at Amazon, Target, and Best Buy. Like with other Echo devices, Amazon is also offering six months of Amazon Music Unlimited for select customers.
