In addition to Amazon's super-popular Fire tablet portfolio
, a whole bunch of Echo devices are also on sale at incredibly low prices for the next few days, and no, there's no need to check your calendars. The e-commerce giant hasn't turned back time to its Prime Day
"parade of epic deals" from a couple of weeks ago, and what's great about Best Buy's 72-hour savings event is that you don't have to be subscribed to any special service to earn the right to participate.
- We at PhoneArena are keeping careful track of all the Prime Day Sales, both at Amazon and elsewhere. You only have to check out our deal hub for the best deals to find what you need!
All you need to do is visit the retailer's official website or a brick and mortar Best Buy store nearby and cough up as little as 15 bucks. That's currently enough to get you the Echo Input, which easily adds Alexa assistance to an external speaker of your choice (that you obviously have to already own or purchase separately). Of course, the third-generation Echo Dot
is its own (diminutive) smart speaker, fetching a measly $22 at the time of this writing in three different paint jobs after a massive $28 discount, representing 56 percent of the usual price of Amazon's Google Home Mini rival.
Released just a couple of months back, the all-new Echo Dot Kids Edition
is up for grabs at $44.99 instead of $69.99, while 2017's full-sized second-gen Echo can be had in exchange for $49.99 and up after a $50 markdown. The second-gen Echo Plus is essentially a chunkier Echo with a built-in smart home hub, which is why you need to pay significantly more for it. Namely, $110 (down from $150), with a $25-worth Smart Plug and a Philips Hue White smart LED bulb normally priced at $15 included for no extra charge.
Last but certainly not least, the substantially marked-down Echo Show (2nd Gen) smart display costs $159.99 right now with an Echo Dot and the same aforementioned smart LED bulb bundled in. In case you're wondering, these are the exact same deals offered exclusively to Amazon Prime members a little while ago, only this time around there are no special requirements or strings attached.
