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.

Amazon’s annual Prime Day sale is coming up real soon, and Amazon is already offering discounts on some of its Echo speakers ahead of it.

Echo Dot

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 drop to its lowest price of $30. However, it’s currently available at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target for $45, $5 off its regular price. There is also a model with a built-in LED display to show the time, weather, and other information that is available for $55, also $5 less than its regular price.

The best price is if you want two Dots, as you can get two for $50 with the offer code PDDOT2PK on Amazon. That’s effectively a buy-one-get-one price.

Amazon is also currently selling some bundles, including a free Sengled Bluetooth lightbulb.

Echo Dot Kids Edition

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.

Right now it’s currently available with the same $5 discount as the standard Dot Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. Amazon is also selling a discounted bundle for $70, though, which includes an Echo Dot Kids Edition plus an Echo Glow.

Amazon Echo

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.

Currently, the fourth-gen Echo is available for $75 ($25 less than the usual price) at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target.

If you are looking for a pair of Amazon Echo devices, you can get two for $120 using the offer code ECHOPRIME.

Echo Studio

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.

Echo Show 5

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. The latest edition, which was released in June, features an always-on microphone, an upgraded 2-megapixel camera, a 5.5-inch display, and a physical shutter, allowing you to block the camera’s view. It’s currently available 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, but for a limited time, it’s on sale at Amazon for $45.

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 $61, an Echo Show 5 and a 1080p Wi-Fi security camera for $55, and an Echo Show 5 plus an adjustable stand for $65. You can also purchase 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 $70.

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.

The Echo Show 5 Kids Edition is currently available 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.

Echo Show 8

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 new model is equipped with 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 $90 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. There are also a few bundles available for a few dollars more. For $100, 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 $115.

The new second-generation Echo Show 8 is available at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target for $130.

Echo Show 10

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.

Both Best Buy and Amazon also have a bundle, which includes an Echo Show 10 and a Blink Mini HD security camera for $255 and $260, respectively.
