When it comes to smart speakers, Amazon has a slew of voice-enabled Echo devices to choose from, one for practically every occasion.

Regardless of the reason, this is one of the best times of the year to pick up an Echo device, even if Black and Cyber Monday are behind us.

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 and is currently on sale for just $19.99 at Amazon.
We’ve recently seen the latest Echo Dot drop to an all-time low of $29.99, which is the smart speaker’s current price at Amazon. Amazon is also selling a model with a built-in LED display that showcases the time, weather, and other information for an additional $15 more, bringing the price to $34.99. 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.
Target and Best Buy, meanwhile, are also offering the fourth-gen Dot for $29.99, with the latter retailer taking $10 off if you buy two — meaning you’d pay $50 instead of $60 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 $34.99, 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 $34.99 at Amazon, 42 percent off the original list price. However, the retail giant is also selling a discounted bundle for $49.99 instead of $89.98, which includes an Echo Dot Kids Edition and an Echo Glow. If you prefer a different retailer, Target and Best Buy are also selling the Kids Edition for $34.99, the latter with a four-month trial to SiriusXM Streaming Platinum.
The best Amazon Echo deals
The fourth-gen Amazon Echo also received a makeover this year. 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.
We’ve seen the Echo drop to as low as $60 during shopping events like Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday before. Thankfully, it’s still available at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target right now for $59.99, its lowest price to date. Like with the fourth-gen Dot, you can also get a free Sengled smart bulb with your purchase at either Amazon or Best Buy, and Amazon is offering a 25 percent discount when you trade in select devices. Best Buy is additionally including four months of SiriusXM Streaming Platinum with each purchase.
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 latest Echo Show 5 is currently available for $44.99 at Best Buy and Amazon, an all-time low and $35 cheaper than the first-gen model is currently selling for at Amazon. You can also pick up a Blink Mini for $5 more through either retailer, which is a nice discount on the basic, 1080p security camera. Like with other Echo devices, Amazon will take 25 percent off either configuration if you trade in an eligible device.
Amazon’s Echo Show 5 is an ideal smart display for a nightstand. You can set alarms with Alexa using your voice, play music, control smart displays, get a weather report, and more. When the alarm goes off, you merely need to tap the top of the Echo Show 5 to snooze it.
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 $45 off ($49.99) 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 $64.98 (normally $114.98) or an Echo Show 5 Kids Edition with an Echo Glow for $64.99 (normally $124.98) 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 $59.99 at Amazon and Best Buy, and there are a few discounted bundles available for a few dollars more. For $64.99, for instance, you can pick up a first-gen Echo Show 8 and a Blink Mini security camera at either Amazon or Best Buy. Alternatively, you can buy a first-gen Echo Show 8 with an adjustable stand for $75.98 instead of $130.98, or with a portable battery for $109.98 instead of $159.98.
The second-gen Echo Show 8 is currently available at Amazon and Best Buy for $94.99, nearly matching the smart display’s best price to date. Like the last-gen model, it’s also available in a bundle at Amazon and Best Buy that contains a Blink Mini for $99.99 instead of $164.99, or with an adjustable stand for $116.98 or a portable base for $144.98 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 Echo Show 8 is the midsized smart display in Amazon’s current Echo lineup and can be used to display the weather, news, calendars, grocery lists, and more. You can also use it to control your smart home devices, watch streaming video, or listen to music. It even supports video calling via Zoom and Amazon’s Alexa calling service.
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 $249.99 price at Amazon and Best Buy. Amazon is also offering a discounted bundle, which includes an Echo Show 10 and a Blink Mini for $259.99 instead of $284.98. Again, trading in select devices at Amazon can net you 25 percent off on the Echo Show 10 and all aforementioned bundles.
