Amazon’s second-gen Echo and Echo Show are back to the low prices we saw during Black Friday 2018. The Echo smart speaker is down to $69.99 (usually $99.99), while the smart display is down to $179.99 (usually $229.99). Many of Amazon’s other Echo devices are currently available at a discount as well.

If you’re looking for better sound quality than the smaller Amazon Echo Dot (third-gen) can provide, the $69.99 Echo (pictured above) is the way to go.

The Echo Show, which boasts a 10.1-inch display for recipes, videos, and hosting video calls with its camera, isn’t a slouch when it comes to sound, either. The screen means it’s capable of doing way more than the standard Echo, and you can pick one up for $179.99.

If you don’t need a display that big, the Echo Spot should fit the bill. It’s $99.99, down from its regular $129.99 price point. The Spot resembles a bedside alarm clock, though it’s a solid Alexa device that fits nicely into any room in your house.

These deals are active until February 15th at 12AM ET (9PM PT on February 14th.) A few other Echo devices are discounted as well, including the following:

  • Echo Plus (second-gen, contains bigger speakers and a smart home hub for connecting Alexa-ready devices) for $119.99 (usually $149.99)
  • Echo Dot Kids Edition (a second-gen Echo Dot in a durable case, one year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, and a two-year warranty) is $39.99 (usually $69.99)
