Best cheap Amazon Echo deals October 2021

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, these are the best Echo deals available right now.

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, and it’s currently available at Amazon for $35. Best Buy, which is offering the fourth-gen Dot at full price, will also throw in a three-month trial to SiriusXM Streaming Platinum and take $10 off if you buy two, meaning you’d pay $90 instead of $100. There is also a model with a built-in LED display that showcases the time, weather, and other information that is available at Amazon for $45, a healthy $15 off the list price. Both the base model and the LED-equipped variant are available 25 percent off at Amazon when you trade in select devices.

The fourth-gen Echo Dot features a more spherical design than an actual dot but can still do all the things Alexa does with other Echo models.

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 on sale for $40 instead of $60 at Amazon. The retail giant is also selling a discounted bundle for $55, which includes an Echo Dot Kids Edition and an Echo Glow.

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 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.

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.

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 6 is currently available for $85 at Best Buy and Amazon. If you prefer the first-gen model, the 2019 version is available at the same retailers for $45 (Best Buy, Amazon). Again, Amazon will take 25 percent off of those prices 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, tap the top of the Echo Show 5 to snooze it.

The first-gen Echo Show 5 is more than just an alarm clock with Alexa built in. Amazon’s small smart display also features a camera that enables video chats.

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 Echo Show 5 Kids Edition is exactly that: a second-gen Echo Show 5 with a colorful design, a two-year warranty, and a year of Amazon Kids Plus services, granting your child access to a robust assortment of kid-friendly content.

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, 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.

The first-gen Show 8 is currently available for $110 at Amazon and Best Buy, however, there are a few discounted bundles available for a few dollars more. For $120, you can get a first-gen Echo Show 8 and a 1080p 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 available at Amazon and Best Buy for $130, its full retail price. At Best Buy, however, you can save $50 if you purchase two of them, reducing the bundled price to $210. Like the last-gen model, it’s also available in a bundle that contains a Blink Mini for $140 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.


Amazon Echo Show 8 (first-gen)

The last-gen Echo Show 8 is Amazon’s mid-size smart display. It features a sharp, 8-inch screen and most of the features found on the second-gen model, though, it lacks the latter’s 13MP camera and speedy performance.


Amazon Echo Show 8 (second-gen)

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. 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 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 security camera for $260. Again, trading in select devices at Amazon can net you 25 percent off on the Echo Show 10 and all aforementioned bundles.


Amazon Echo Show 10 (third gen)

Amazon’s new rotating Echo Show 10 has a motor within its cylindrical base that lets its 10.1-inch display spin around to find you, so you’ll always have the screen within view. It’s the best Alexa smart display for making video calls.
