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 currently available right now.

Echo Dot

Last year, Amazon released the 4th generation of the Echo Dot, which looks more like a sphere than an actual dot. But if you prefer the previous design, dont worry  Amazon has not discontinued the 3rd-gen Echo Dot, which still retains the familiar dot shape.

During Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we saw the 4th-gen Echo Dot go down to its lowest price of $30. There are no active deals for a single Echo Dot right now, but you can buy it for its usual price of $50 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. However, if you want a pair, Amazon is currently running a promotion that allows you to buy two for $10 off (before tax) when you enter the code DOT2PK at checkout.

Echo Dot Kids Edition

The 4th-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 Amazons Kid Plus service, which provides access to a slew of kid-friendly content, like audiobooks and games.

We have seen this product go down to $40. Right now, there are no current deals for a single Echo Dot Kids Edition, but you can buy one for $60 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. The only active deal available right now is at Amazon, where you can receive $10 off if you buy two using the code DOT2PK at checkout.

Amazon Echo

The 4th-gen Amazon Echo smart home hub has also gotten an updated look. Like the 4th-gen Echo Dot, the 2020 Amazon Echo has a sphere-shaped design, but its noticeably bigger than the Echo Dot.

There are no active deals right now for a single Amazon Echo smart speaker, but you can get it right now for its usual price of $100 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. Amazon also has a few bundles going on right now; for $100, Amazon is also offering a bundle that includes one Echo smart speaker plus two Philips Hue Bulbs.

If you are looking for a pair of Amazon Echo devices, Amazon is currently running a promotion that allows you to buy two for $20 off (before tax) when you enter the code ECHO2PACK at checkout. Best Buy is also selling an Amazon Echo two-pack for $180, which knocks $20 off its normal retail price.

Amazons latest Echo speaker takes a new approach to its design, opting for a spherical look rather than a cylinder. More notably, though, for the same price as the previous generation, it sounds much better.

Echo Show 5

If you are looking for an Echo device that functions more as a smart clock than an entertainment speaker, the Echo Show 5 is one of two smart displays to consider. The Echo Show 5 includes a 5.5-inch display, making it easy to fit just about anywhere inside your home. Not only does the device include a built-in camera, but theres also a physical shutter on the device, allowing you to block the cameras view while keeping the always-on microphone active.

The Echo Show 5 usually costs $90, but right now, you can buy the device at its best-ever price of $45 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. Best Buy also has a few bundles currently available, including a $55 bundle that includes the Echo Show 5 and one 1080p Wi-Fi security camera. You can also get two Echo Show 5 units for just $90.

Echo Show 8

Amazons Echo Show 8 features an eight-inch display; it costs $40 more than the Echo Show 5. When stacked up against the Google Nest Hub, which is its closest competitor in terms of price and functionality, the Echo Show 8 is the better option for a few reasons: it has a slightly larger display, better speakers, and a camera, allowing you to use it as a video chatting device; this includes Zoom calls.

Normally, this device costs $130, but it has seen some good price reductions in the past. We have seen the device go down as low as $65. But if you are looking to buy the device now, you can get it for just $80 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. If you buy an Echo Show 8 on Amazon right now, you will also receive a one-year subscription to Food Network Kitchen at no additional cost.

If youre looking to buy a pair of Echo Show 8 devices, Best Buy is offering two units for $160, $100 off the usual price.
