Several Amazon Echo models are on sale over the weekend; check out these deals now

Just a few hours ago, a new sale got underway at Amazon covering some of its smart speaker models. From now until 2:59 am EST on Monday morning, you can save 12% or $15 on the Amazon Echo Spot. This is one of the newer Echo devices in the lineup, and includes a 2.5-inch display. With the discount, the price of the Echo Spot is reduced to $114.99 from the usual non-sale price of $129.99.

The second-generation Echo is also on sale. Priced with a $15 discount at $84.99, you can save $15 or 15% from the pre-sale price of $99.99. The new speaker on board features seven microphones, beamforming technology, and noise cancellation. It also features Dolby processing and gives you the ability to fill a room with sound. The Amazon Echo Show, which includes a 7-inch touchscreen display, is receiving a whopping 35% price cut for this sale. That takes the price down by $80 to $149.99. Shipping on all three devices is free.

With any of the Amazon Echo models you can control smart appliances inside your home, stream music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, and more. Thanks to virtual assistant Alexa, you can order a pizza from Domino's or a ride from Uber. Get weather reports, stock prices, sports scores and news briefs. New skills are being added constantly, increasing Alexa's capabilities.

Remember, the sale expires early Monday morning, so if you're in the market for a smart speaker, don't procrastinate. If interested, click on the sourcelinks below.

I prefer Google smart speakers because they have better experiences with Google services. But the current Google smart speakers are not my thing, I will wait for another year to see if I really need smart speakers. Right now my cell phone is all I need

Problem with Google smart speakers is that you are locked in. I use Microsoft for work and Echo is more for enterprise users while Google is more for personal use. Google really missed the boat with not allowing outlook calender to sync. Google is becoming the new Apple.
