Last chance to order an Amazon Echo Show 5 for delivery in time for Christmas

Echo Show 5

A smart speaker can revolutionize anyone’s home, and now’s the time to act if you want that possibility for yours, or that of someone on your Christmas list.  There are some great Amazon Echo deals to browse. But now is your last chance to score an Amazon Echo Show 5 and have it arrive in time for Christmas, and score$45 off. It’s only $45 at Best Buy, down from its regular price of $90.  That’s half off!

Our reviewers for the Echo Show 5 said it was, “More than just a smart alarm clock” and they weren’t kidding. These Echo Show devices are some of the handiest smart gadgets out there. Back in early December, the delivery dates for the Echo 5 was January, but Best Buy must have discovered some more, because not only are they available for Christmas, they’re half off.

At its core, the Echo Show 5 is an entertainment and smart hub all contained within a 5.5-inch smart display.  This is a fantastic way to connect with other members of your household, family, and friends, as well as manage your daily schedule, set alarms or check in with daily news briefs, trailers, and other helpful content.  One feature we love about this version of the Echo Show: It allows you to pick your own clock face so that you can match the décor or ambiance of your bedroom, kitchen, or wherever you’ve placed it as your command center. It’s not just useful, but incredibly attractive, too. 

Of course, the hip functionality jumps out right out of the box. As with other Echo devices, the Echo Show 5 works with Alexa, which makes it a visual connection to your entire smart home. You can use the Echo Show 5 to play with the thermostat, control your smart TV, or manage your smart lighting system. But it can do way more than just that. Call up your favorite radio stations or podcasts, or do video calls with your friend for socially distanced drinks. And of course,  you can use it to send videos and photos — which can also serve as your display — to friends and family.  And there are supplementary privacy settings to make sure this Amazon device is never spying on you or your home or collecting your data.

Buy the Echo Show 5 for just $45 today and receive it by Christmas. There are other Amazon Echo deals you can pursue, but with $45 off of its original price of $90, and a delivery date that can make Christmas complete, now might be the right time to head over to Best Buy and score the Echo Show 5.
