It’s not Prime Day, but Amazon has some killer deals on Echo devices as of Sept. 23. Here are our favorites:

  • OUR TOP PICK: The Echo Show 8 (2nd gen) features an upgraded 13 MP camera — $79.99 $129.99 (save $50)

  • BUDGET PICK: This deal on the Echo Show 5 (2nd gen) matches the lowest price we’ve seen on it— $39.99 $84.99 (save $45)

  • BEST FOR PRIME MEMBERS: The Echo Home Entertainment Bundle comes with an Echo Studio, plus two 4th gen Echos — $299.97 $399.97 (save $100)


We still haven’t heard a peep from Amazon about a speculated second Prime Day, but even so, the mega-retailer dropped some Prime Day-worthy deals on Echo devices this week — matching or beating the low prices we’ve seen on the Echo Show 8, Echo Show 5, and an Echo Studio bundle.

Most of these deals are for a limited time only, so read on for the details and shop the sales before they’re gone for good.

OUR TOP PICK: Echo Show 8 (2nd gen)$79.99 (save $50)

Why we love it

If you’re constantly on Zoom or using video chat to connect with your family members, the 2nd gen Echo Show 8 is the best Amazon device for you. The crisp 13 MP camera ensures your picture will show up clear on the other end — so you can spend more time connecting with loved ones and less time worrying about technical difficulties. The Echo Show 8 also features auto-framing to keep you centered on video calls, even as you multitask.

This deal matches the lowest price we’ve seen on this model (and is the same as the Prime Day price from earlier this year). This pricing is only available through Sept. 23, so grab it while you can.

BUDGET PICK: Echo Show 5 (2nd gen)$39.99 (save $45)

Why we love it

At over 50% off, this deal matches the lowest price we’ve seen on the 2nd gen Echo Show 5. While it’s not as upgraded as the 2nd Gen Echo Show 8, this smart home hub is well worth the $39.99 deal price, especially if you won’t be using it for video calling. (The 2 MP camera on this model is decent, but doesn’t compare to the Echo Sho 8’s 13 MP camera).

Use the Echo Show 5 to manage your other smart home devices, set alarms, organize your calendar, listen to your favorite music and podcasts, and more.

BEST FOR PRIME MEMBERS: Echo Home Entertainment Bundle$299.97 (save $100)

Why we love it

Prime members, rejoice: This deal is just for you and it only runs through midnight ET on Sept. 23, so grab it while you can.

This bundle will get you an Echo Studio plus two 4th gen Echos for $100 off the retail price. Connect both of the Echos to the studio in the same room for immersive sound, or separate them into multiple rooms for whole-home music. Not only will you get high quality sound with Dolby Atmos technology, but you’ll also be able to use Alexa to control your smart home devices, ask questions, and manage your day with the sound of your voice.

(Not a Prime member? You can still sign up to get this deal).
