Here are the best Amazon Echo deals right now

When it comes to smart speakers, Amazon has a slew of voice-enabled Echo devices to choose from, one for practically every occasion. Maybe you want to add Alexa to a room, for example, or you’re looking for an Echo device that will allow you to easily manage your lighting or other smart home products. Regardless of the reason, this is one of the best times of the year to pick up an Echo device, especially as early Black Friday deals begin to ramp in preparation for the main event.

Below, we’ve curated a list of some of the very best Amazon Echo deals available right now. Be sure to keep an eye on our Black Friday hub as well, which will continue to highlight the latest Black Friday news, tip, and deals through the end of November.

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 still retains the familiar dot shape.

We’ve recently seen the latest Echo Dot drop to an all-time low of $29, however, right now it’s only available at Amazon for $50, the original list price. Amazon is also selling a model with a built-in LED display that showcases the time, weather, and other information for an additional $10 more, bringing the price to $60. Note, however, that both the base model and the LED-equipped variant are available 25 percent off at Amazon when you trade in select devices. Both can also be picked up with a Sengled smart bulb at no additional cost.

Best Buy and Target, meanwhile, are also offering the fourth-gen Dot at full price, with both retailers taking $10 off if you buy two — meaning you’d pay $90 instead of $100 for a pair. Best Buy, however, will also throw in a four-month trial to SiriusXM Streaming Platinum in addition to a Sengled smart bulb with each purchase. The same promotions apply to the fourth-gen Dot with the built-in LED display, which is available at Target and Best Buy for $60, the full retail price. The only difference is that Best Buy is not currently offering $10 off when you purchase two.

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 Kid Plus service, which provides access to a slew of kid-friendly content, like audiobooks and games.

The Kids Edition is currently selling for $60, its full price, at Amazon. However, the retail giant is also selling a discounted bundle for $75 instead of $90, which includes an Echo Dot Kids Edition and an Echo Glow. Target is selling the Kids Edition for $60 as well, but you’ll get $10 off if you buy two.

The best Amazon Echo deals

The fourth-gen Amazon Echo has also received a makeover. Like the aforementioned fourth-gen Echo Dot, the 2020 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 Echo drop to as low as $60 during shopping events like Amazon Prime Day, it’s only available at Amazon, Best Buy, and other retailers right now for $100. Like the fourth-gen Dot, you can, however, get a 25 percent discount when you trade in a select device at Amazon. Target is also currently taking $20 off a set of two Echos, bringing the bundled price down to $180.

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 $200 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. Amazon also offers a Billie Eilish Limited Edition Echo Studio with the singer’s image pasted on the side for $230.

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 latest Echo Show 5 is currently available for $85 at Best Buy and Amazon, its typical retail price. If you’re looking to save some money, however, the 2019 model is currently on sale at Amazon for $40 instead of $80. Again, Amazon will take 25 percent off on either version if you trade in an eligible device.

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 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.

The Echo Show 5 Kids Edition is available for full price ($95) at Amazon, Best Buy, and other retailers. If you’re looking for add-ons, you can also pick up 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 through Amazon. Once more, Amazon is also offering a 25 percent discount on each model and bundle if you trade in certain devices.

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 for $110 at Amazon and Best Buy, though, there are a few discounted bundles available for a few dollars more. For $115, for instance, you can pick up a first-gen Echo Show 8 and a Blink Mini security camera. Alternatively, you can buy a first-gen Echo Show 8 with an adjustable stand for $131 instead of $135.

The second-gen Echo Show 8 is currently available at Amazon and Best Buy for $130, its full retail price. Like the last-gen model, it’s also available in a bundle at Amazon and Best Buy that contains a Blink Mini for $135 instead of $165, or with an adjustable stand for $155 at Amazon. If you purchase through Amazon, the 25 percent trade-in discount is also applicable to all generations of the Echo Show 8 as well as the bundles.

The best Echo Show 10 deals

Recently, 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 for its usual $250 price at Amazon and Best Buy. Amazon is also offering a discounted bundle, which includes an Echo Show 10 and a Blink Mini for $260 instead of $285. Again, trading in select devices at Amazon can net you 25 percent off on the Echo Show 10 and all aforementioned bundles.
