It’s almost Christmas and time is running out to snag presents for all your friends and family. If you’re still looking to finish up some last-minute shopping, this is the deal for you. The Amazon Echo Show 5 is currently discounted to just $45 at Best Buy — that’s $45 off its usual price of $90. This is one of the best Amazon Echo deals available during the holidays so you need to act fast. Buy it now and have it delivered in time for your unwrapping party at Christmas.
The Echo Show 5 has a 5.5-inch smart display that will give you your daily news alerts, let you stream trailers, act as an alarm clock, and more. It’s also extremely compact, fitting onto the tiniest nightstands, and has tons of privacy features if you ever need to turn off your microphone or camera. One of its best features though has to be its ability to make hands-free video calls to your friends and family. Easily connect with your loved ones this Christmas, even if they’re miles apart. You can also connect with any other Echo devices in your home and use your new Echo Show to make announcements in other rooms — great if you’re too lazy to leave the bed on a particularly cold winter day.
When your Echo Show is not in use it defaults to a clock face of your choosing. Choose between tons of different clock faces or even personalize them with pictures of your friends and family. You can even set up your Echo Show with the ambient sunrise feature so even on those dark cold days, you can wake up to ‘natural’ light. There’s also a lot you can do with Alexa. There’s always new updates and Alexa is one of the most advanced voice assistants available. Ask her for weather updates, to set up your daily appointments, play games with you, tell you a story, read you a recipe, and more.
With all these great features, the Amazon Echo Show 5 is a great buy at its current price of $45. Make sure to act quickly though, especially if you want it in time for Christmas. The longer you wait, the longer you risk this must-have gadget running out of stock.
