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 your living room, replace the bulletin board in your office, or pick up a touchscreen-enabled device 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 Dot to Amazon’s latest Echo Show 10. Even when they’re selling at full price, for instance, 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.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of the better discounts available on each device in Amazon’s Echo line, some of which are currently on sale for more than 40 percent off.
The best Echo Dot deals
In 2022, 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 is on sale for $29.99 ($10 off) at Amazon, Target, and Best Buy. Best Buy is also offering a $10 discount when you buy a pair, dropping the price of two to $50.
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, Best Buy, and other retailers for $34.99, a modest $15 off the full retail price. Amazon, Target, and Best Buy are also selling the model with a built-in LED display that showcases the time, weather, and other information for $10 more. Regardless of which fourth-gen Echo Dot model you buy, Best Buy is also currently offering $10 off the price of two if you’re looking to outfit your home with multiple smart speakers.
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 at Amazon, Best Buy, Kohl’s, and Bed Bath & Beyond for $44.99 ($15 off), matching its best price of the year. Best Buy once again is also taking $10 off the price of two, which brings the price of a pair down to $80.
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, Target, and Staples right now for $79.99, a cool $20 off its typical retail price. If you bundle a pair at Best Buy, however, the price of two drops to $140, which is $20 off. You can also pick up the fourth-gen Echo with a free Ring Smart Bulb at Amazon for $94.98 ($20 off), or with a pair of Echo Frames for $234.98 ($115 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, however, it is available for its usual price of $199.99 at Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo. 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 last year, 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.
We’ve seen the second-gen Echo Show 5 drop to as low as $44.99, and while it’s currently not receiving a discount that steep, you can pick it up at Amazon, Best Buy, Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Target right now for $49.99 ($35 off), one of its best prices to date. You can also purchase it at Amazon with an adjustable stand for $69.98 ($35 off).
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.
Right now, the Echo Show 5 Kids Edition is available for $59.99 — $35 off the normal retail price — at Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Home Depot, and other retailers. Like the standard edition, it’s also on sale on Amazon with an adjustable stand for $79.98 ($35 off).
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.
We recently saw the first-gen Show 8 drop to as low as $59.99 ($50 off), but it’s currently only available at retailers like Amazon and Best Buy for $69.99 ($40 off). As for the second-gen model, it’s available at Amazon, Target, Best Buy, and Kohl’s for $99.99, $30 off the full retail price and just $10 shy of its all-time low of $89.99. Amazon is also offering select customers six months of Amazon Music Unlimited with the purchase of either the first- or second-gen model, though, the retailer doesn’t stipulate how to qualify.
If you’re interested in accessories, both the first- and second-gen models are also available at Amazon with either a Ring Video Doorbell or a Ring Floodlight Cam Wired Plus for $50 off when you use promo code BUNDLESAVING at checkout.
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. If you still want to pick it up, however, you can get it right now for $249.99 — the smart display’s typical retail price — at Amazon, Target, and Best Buy. Like with other Echo devices, Amazon is also offering six months of Amazon Music Unlimited to select customers.
The best Echo Show 15 deals
Unlike other smart displays in Amazon’s Echo lineup, the new Echo Show 15 is a large, wall-mounted device with a 15.6-inch touch display. It’s designed to replace the likes of bulletin boards and calendars, and as such, it functions as a shared hub for families where everyone can see digital sticky notes, upcoming calendar appointments, shopping lists, and other reminders. It also features support for Alexa, meaning it offers the same functionality as other Echo displays and smart speakers, and you can even use it as a decent 1080p TV in your kitchen or to display photos and artwork. It’s even compatible with an optional stand, though, we’d argue it remains a better fit for your wall than your countertop given its size.
Having launched at the end of last year, we’ve seen very few discounts on the Echo Show 15. That said, you can currently buy it at Amazon, Kohl’s, Best Buy, and Target for $249.99, its full retail price and $50 more than its most recent sale price.
