Just when you think you've reached peak Alexa, Amazon goes ahead and releases more Amazon Echo devices.
New this month are the 2nd-Gen Amazon Echo 2017, the Amazon Echo Spot, and Amazon Echo Plus. These new devices join the existing army of Alexa devices that include the Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot and Amazon Echo Show. That's a lot of Alexa!
But with so many devices to choose from, how do you know you're getting the best deal? We’ve scoured the internet for all the best Amazon Echo deals and Amazon Echo Dot deals, so you can join the voice assistant revolution as cheaply and as easily as possible. Our research suggests that even though Amazon Prime Day may have come and gone, there are plenty of great deals to be had.
But what exactly is a voice assistant?
We’ve grown used to the likes of Siri and Google Assistant on our phones providing us with information without having to press a single button, but the Amazon Echo is a little different. Instead of a phone, it’s an internet-connected speaker that sits in your home and listens for you to give it instructions.
The speakers themselves are a little expensive, but with our help you should be able to find a cheap Amazon Echo, and get yourself a great Alexa deal. So read on for the cheapest places to buy the Amazon Echo and Amazon Echo Dot.
Amazon Echo deals
The Amazon Echo is the full-size Alexa-enabled speaker. It has the beefier speaker of the two, and is hence a lot taller to accommodate this. The downside of the Echo is that it’s a lot more expensive, which makes it all the more important to find a good Amazon Echo deal.
Check out a list of the top Echo deals below.
Amazon Echo Dot deals
The Amazon Echo Dot is the smaller of the two speakers. It manages to save this space by including a much smaller speaker, which consequently offers a much weaker sound. The good news is that if you want to do some serious music listening then you’re able to plug the Echo Dot into an external speaker using its 3.5mm jack. It’s also a great deal cheaper than the original Echo, meaning that it’s a great way of cheaply getting Alexa into your home, or perhaps adding a second speaker to your setup.
Amazon Echo Show deals
Amazon Echo Show is a brand-new addition to the Echo family of devices. Like its siblings, the Dot and the original Echo, the Show can play music, control your smart home and make calls to other Echo devices. However, what makes it different (and in some ways better) is the fact that Amazon added a display to the Show, allowing you to get visual information as well as audio. That means you'll be able to see the name of songs while they're playing, read recipes right off the screen or see more in-depth five-day weather forecasts without asking Alexa to repeat herself time and time again.
