Big news: You can get half off an Amazon Echo Show 5 right now at Best Buy. With the new year, and people looking to update their homes, there are some great Amazon Echo deals, but it’s quite rare to find an Amazon Echo Show for $45 off. It’s down to just $45, from its regular price of $90. That’s a 50% discount.

Want all the convenience of a smart home video speaker, but worried about your privacy? There’s a solution. The Amazon Echo Show 5 has privacy settings to make sure it’s never spying on you or your home or collecting your data. This device is so much more than just an alarm clock, as our reviewers noted.

The central offer with the Echo Show 5 is an entertainment and smart hub — all conveniently, and neatly stored within a 5.5-inch smart display. Think of the amount of time you’ve spent this year on video calls with friends, family, and colleagues. This is an easy and fun way to connect with others, as well as manage your daily schedule. You can set alarms, and check in with daily news briefs, trailers, and other helpful content. Want to know the weather? Just ask.

Another feature we love about this update 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, it looks great in your home as well.

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 friends for socially distanced drinks. And of course, you can use it to send videos and photos to friends and family. Possibly the best feature is that it allows you to use those photos and videos as display images, acting as a super functional, highly integrated, digital photo frame. How cool is that?

As smart gadgets continue to revolutionize how we use our homes, consider these Amazon Echo deals, or head over to Best Buy, where the Amazon Show 5 is $45 off. It was $90, but it’s down to $45 with this incredible discount from Best Buy.
