Amazon discounts Echo Dot and Echo Studio — on sale from $19

Prime Day 2020 kicks off in a matter of hours and Amazon is already rolling out some early bargains on its own Fire TVs and Echo devices. Although they’re not the only game in town, the Echo smart speakers are arguably still the best on the market, and if you’ve been thinking about getting one (and you’ve got a Prime membership), then now’s the time.

The big sale doesn’t officially begun until Tuesday, October 13, but Amazon is no stranger to rolling out early Prime Day deals ahead of the event. These Prime Day Echo discounts are a great chance for Prime members to score the fantastic Echo Dot and Echo Studio Alexa-powered smart speakers, but you don’t have to go hunting around — we’ve already corralled them right here:

Amazon Echo Dot Mini (3rd Gen) — $19, was $50

If you want a basic (yet surprisingly great-sounding) smart speaker that gives you all the conveniences of Amazon Alexa in a compact and super-cheap package, then the third-generation Echo Dot is the one. Amazon recently revealed the new fourth-gen Echo Dot, but for our money, the third-gen model is the one to buy right now — and the release of new gadgets is always the best time to score deep deals on last-gen units like this one.

But make no mistake: The third-generation Echo Dot still sounds great, is capable of filling the room with audio thanks to its 360-degree design, and gives you the full suite of Alexa A.I. functionality that makes these smart speakers so famous. It’s also the ideal hub for all of your smart devices if you have (or are building) a smart home ecosystem. It’s a good value even at its normal $50 price, but these early Prime Day Echo deals let Prime members grab it for a shockingly cheap $19 right now.

Amazon Echo Studio — $150, was $200

The Echo Dot is a great cheap smart speaker, but if you want something a bit more high-end, Amazon has you covered with its new Echo Studio. The Echo Studio is, in a word, Amazon’s best smart speaker yet, pumping out rich and full 360-degree sound that lets you crank up the bass. If you love to stream music but find other smart speakers not quite delivering the punch that your ears crave, the Echo Studio is for you.

As an Amazon smart speaker, the Echo Studio also features built-in Alexa AI that keeps you connected and gives you easy voice control over any of your other Alexa-capable devices (but it works just fine all by itself, too, if you’re not really into the smart home thing). A $50 Prime Day discount knocks the Echo Studio down to $150, which is a great price for Amazon’s premium smart speaker.

"Alexa, how's my vision?"

Amazon recently announced that for Prime Day, it's discounting the Echo Frames, the company's smart glasses wearable, to just $100. In addition, you'll be able to get a prescription-ready version of these glasses or a shades variant for only $20 more. Seeing that the original price of these frames starts at $250, it seems like a great deal. The real question is if they are worth even $100 of your hard-earned cash.

Which Amazon Echo should you buy on Prime Day 2022? 
Echo Show 15 with base.

There was a time when it was easy to choose which Amazon Echo device to buy because there wasn’t much of a selection. These days, Amazon has an entire stable of devices ready to respond and carry out your commands. That makes things a bit trickier for those who are looking to pick up their first (or add another) Echo device among Prime Day Amazon Echo deals. You can also review some of the best deals year round.

We’ve tested and tried each Echo device to find the best of the lot. This year, we think it’s the Echo Show 10. With its high-quality 360-degree speaker, a large screen, and the ability to pan around the room to double as a security camera or video conferencing dynamo, it’s a great all-around choice. Even so, depending on how you want to use an Echo Show and how much space you have, there’s certainly a case to be made for other Echo devices.

Echo show 15 stands

If you’ve purchased a new Amazon Echo Show 15, there’s an important thing to know: You really need to plan to wall-mount it. If that’s not in the cards for you (maybe you’re in a rental or just don’t have wall space), you have a few options, since unlike pretty much all other Echo Show devices, you can pick how you want to orient the Echo Show 15. Let's take a look at the best ways to display your Echo Show 15 so it's accessible and safe from tipping over.
Use the included wall bracket for wall-mounting

You can hang the Echo Show 15 on a wall with the included bracket. You can read the instructions, but you simply screw the bracket to the wall. Use the drywall anchors if you don’t have an available stud. The Show 15 will slide onto the bracket for a safe and permanent installation.
