Amazon’s current Echo lineup offers a broad selection of smart speakers and displays that can fit just about anywhere in your home. Whether you want to place a voice assistant in your living room, replace the bulletin board in your office, or pick up a touchscreen-enabled device to showcase recipes in the kitchen, there's an Echo device for just about every occasion and use case.

Regardless of why you might want one, there’s also always a way to save on an Echo device, from the last-gen Dot to the wall-mounted Echo Show 15. Even when they’re selling at full price, for instance, Amazon offers a 25 percent discount when you trade in select devices, meaning there are still other ways to save money when none of the models are on sale.

Below, we’ve rounded up the best deals available on each device in Amazon’s Echo lineup. Not all of the current discounts may rival those we saw during Amazon Prime Day, but some models — including the fourth-gen Echo Dot and first-gen Echo Show 8 — are still on sale for as much as 60 percent off. Also, keep in mind that, in many instances, Best Buy is also offering $10 off the price of a pair of Echo devices, giving you an additional way to save if you’re looking to outfit your home with more than one smart speaker or display.

The best Echo Dot deals

In 2020, 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 retains the familiar dot shape and is available for $39.99 (its full retail price) at Amazon and Best Buy.

As for the latest Echo Dot, it’s available right now at Best Buy, Target, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond for $19.99 ($30 off), which is actually cheaper than it was during Amazon Prime Day. Amazon, Target, and Best Buy are also selling the model with a built-in LED display that showcases the time, weather, and other information for $59.99, the speaker’s usual list price.

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 Kids Plus service, which provides access to a slew of kid-friendly content, including audiobooks and games.

If you’re looking to pick up the latest, kid-centric Echo Dot, it’s currently available at Best Buy, Target, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond right now for $24.99 ($35 off), a mere $5 more than the standard version and on par with the all-time low we saw on the smart speaker during Prime Day.

The fourth-gen Amazon Echo also received a makeover in 2020. Like the aforementioned fourth-gen Echo Dot, the latest 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.

In the past, we’ve seen the namesake Echo drop to as low as $60, primarily during shopping events like Black Friday and Prime Day. Despite the recency of Amazon’s two-day sales event — it ended less than a month ago — you can still pick up the smart speaker at Best Buy, Target, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond for a mere $59.99.

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. Unfortunately, however, the Echo Studio is currently only available at Amazon, Target, and Best Buy for its usual asking price of $199.99. Amazon also offers a Billie Eilish Limited Edition Echo Studio with the singer’s image pasted on the side for $229.99, if you consider yourself an Avocado, Eyelash, or whatever Eilish fans call themselves these days.

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 last year, 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.

During Prime Day, we saw the second-gen Echo Show 5 drop to as low as $44.99 ($40 off). Right now, however, it’s available at Target and Best Buy in either black or white for a mere $34.99 ($50 off), easily besting the smart display’s previous all-time low.

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 Kids 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.

As far as pricing goes, we recently saw the Echo Show 5 Kids drop to $39.99 — its lowest price to date — during Amazon Prime Day. Thankfully, the compact smart display is currently matching that price at Target, Best Buy, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

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 newer 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.

We recently saw the first-gen Show 8 drop to as low as $54.99 ($55 off) at Amazon and Best Buy, but only the latter retailer is currently offering the smart display at the aforementioned price. As for the second-gen model, it’s readily available at retailers like Amazon, Target, and Best Buy for $129.99, the usual list price. Amazon is offering select customers six months of Amazon Music Unlimited with the purchase of either the first- or second-gen model, though, the retailer doesn’t stipulate how to qualify.

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

Last year, 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. If you still want to pick it up, however, you can get it for $249.99 — the smart display’s typical retail price — at Amazon, Target, and Best Buy. Like with other Echo devices, Amazon is also offering six months of Amazon Music Unlimited to select customers.

The best Echo Show 15 deals

Unlike other smart displays in Amazon’s Echo lineup, the new Echo Show 15 is a large, wall-mounted device with a 15.6-inch touch display. It’s designed to replace the likes of bulletin boards and calendars, and as such, it functions as a shared hub for families where everyone can see digital sticky notes, upcoming calendar appointments, shopping lists, and other reminders. It also features support for Alexa, meaning it offers the same functionality as other Echo displays and smart speakers, and you can even use it as a decent 1080p TV in your kitchen or to display photos and artwork. It’s even compatible with an optional stand, though, we’d argue it remains a better fit for your wall than your countertop given its size.

Having launched at the end of last year, we’ve seen very few discounts on the Echo Show 15. That said, you can currently buy it at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target for $249.99, its full retail price and $50 more than its most recent sale price. Both Best Buy and Amazon are also throwing in a second-gen Echo Show 5 with each purchase at no additional cost, though, the former retailer requires you to select the correct configuration prior to checking out.

The Echo Show 15 is a large, wall-mounted device that acts as a shared hub for families to view upcoming calendar appointments, virtual notes, and more. The 15.6-inch device also features the same Alexa functionality as other Echo displays and smart speakers.
