Prime members can get the Amazon Echo smart speaker for $89.99 for a limited time

Amazon Echo
Just as streaming services now dominate in terms of how most people enjoy their entertainment libraries, innovative new smart technologies are slowly but surely taking over other devices and appliances in our homes. The popular and highly rated Amazon Echo combines the two, serving as an internet-connected streaming device that doubles as a powerful smart speaker.

The success of the Amazon Echo has led to several competitors entering the market with similar smart streaming hubs, including one from Google, but in our opinion, the Echo still reigns supreme due to its superior sound quality and longer list of functions. One of its most notable feature is its use of the Amazon Alexa cloud service, which lets you access the internet and control the speaker via simple voice commands.

Alexa can stream your music from Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, and other popular services, as well as access your audiobook library from Audible. You can also quickly perform Amazon Echointernet searches, check the news or the local weather, look up local businesses, call an Uber, order a pizza, purchase things from Amazon — the list goes on.

The Amazon Echo is compatible with popular smart devices like Wemo, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, and Philips Hue, so you can easily add it to your smart home ecosystem. Its 360-degree speaker pumps powerful sound throughout an entire room, filling the space with music and making it great for parties and other get-togethers. Seven directional microphones ensure that the Echo recognizes your voice even when it is playing.

One sticking point for those considering an Amazon Echo is its $180 price tag, but an exclusive Prime Day discount brings this excellent smart speaker down to a more enticing $99.99 for Prime members. This deal is only valid from 6 p.m. PT on Monday, July 10, through the end of Prime Day on Tuesday, July 11. If you’re a Prime member who has been thinking about getting an Echo and waiting for a deal, then be sure to take advantage of this flash sale before it’s over.
