This week was a big one for Amazon as it announced the new touchscreen Echo Show. In case you missed it, my colleague Chaim Gartenberg rounded up five highlights of the announcement, including a $100 discount which I’ve highlighted below.

Along with the Echo devices, our other favorite tech deals of the week consist of a rare discount on the Sonos Play:1, three great headphone deals, and a Samsung Galaxy S8 promotion on T-Mobile.

  1. Last call: Until end of day today, save $30 on the Amazon Echo. If you prefer to give the new touchscreen version a try, use code SHOW2PACK to save $100 when you buy two Echo Shows. Also, the Kindle and Fire HD 8 promotions I called out last week are ending tonight.
  2. Last call: Until end of day today, save up to $150 on Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4. We rated it an 8.0 here.
  3. The Sonos Play:1 is only discounted about once or twice a year, and Amazon is currently offering $20 off the wireless smart speaker. Their customers give it 4.6 out of 5 stars. (Out of nearly 3,000 reviews!)
  4. Sony’s popular Wireless On-Ear headphones are marked down to $68, the same price as Black Friday last year. These headphones are a great option if you’re looking to spend under $100 on Bluetooth headphones.
  5. While pricier than the Sony headphones — but super comfortable — the Bose SoundLink around-ear headphones are $50 off on Amazon. This is the first time we’re seeing discounts on this since Black Friday, matching an all-time low price of $229.
  6. At $130 on Amazon, the Powerbeats3 Wireless In-Ear Headphones are down to their lowest price ever. Yet another good headphone deal to provide you with even more options.
  7. For a limited time, T-Mobile is offering a buy-one-get-one free promotion on the Samsung Galaxy S8. You can find a complete list of details here, but there are a few caveats we wanted to call out: you must purchase both devices on T-Mobile’s 24-month Equipment Installment Plan, add a new line, and maintain an active, eligible rate plan. This makes this less of a “deal” and more a bonus for someone starting a new plan, but if you fit those conditions, it’s worth taking a look.
