Amazon Prime Day’s mammoth midsummer two days of deals is winding down, but there’s still plenty of second-day savings to be found on TVs, smart speakers, appliances, and more before Prime Day day wraps up.

Now, before Prime Day wraps up until next year, you can score an , down from $150. With just hours to go before Prime Day deals expire, you’d best act now, or else suffer the humiliation of having to listen to your neighbors ask their Echo Plus why you failed to secure these savings.
Amazon has been among the leaders in the smart speaker game since the release of the first Amazon Echo device in 2015. Now, the Echo series includes the compact Echo Dot, the video-driven Echo Show 5, and for audio aficionados, the Echo Plus, featuring the best sound quality of any Echo device.
Premium Dolby-powered speakers give the Echo Plus 360 degrees of crisp audio and bumping bass. Pair with a second Echo Plus to unlock stereo-quality sound, and easily access your Alexa audio assistant from anywhere, thanks to seven microphones and beam-forming technology. The built-in Zigbee hub enables the Amazon Echo Plus to act as your smart home hub, giving it the ability to control other compatible devices like smart lights, switches, locks, and more.
Aside from its standout sound quality, the most noteworthy feature of the Amazon Echo Plus is the ability of the aforementioned Alexa assistant. Through Alexa, you can command your Echo Plus to make calls, check your calendar, select songs from Spotify, Pandora, and others, adjust volume, control compatible smart home devices, and more, all through simple audio commands.
