Today, Amazon (unsurprisingly) was voted #1 in Harris Poll’s annual corporate reputation survey for the third year in a row. As big ol’ thank you, Amazon is discounting 20% or more on select Alexa-enabled devices, including Echoes, Fire Tablets, and Fire TVs. But this deal is for today only.
Arguably, the most exciting deals are for the newest models of the the Echo smart speaker lineup. Right now, the Echo Spot is $103.99 (normally $129.99), the Echo Show is $159.99 (normally $229.99), and the Echo Plus is $119.99 (normally $164.98) with a free compatible Philips Hue Bulb included. These are some of the lowest prices we’ve seen for these models, so if you’ve been thinking of adding Alexa to your family, now may be that time.
The Echo Spot is hands-down our favorite Alexa product. After spending some time with it, we found that it’s just as functional as some of the larger and more expensive Echo models. Plus, the clock face design is both functional and adorable.
We also recommend the Echo Show for family and grandparents because of its large interface, video calls, and text recommendations. But for those of us who don’t really need a screen but want to connect with smart devices, the Echo Plus will suit you just fine, as it doubles as a smart home hub.
