4th-gen Amazon Echo gets big price cut in early Prime Day deal

Amazon Echo 4th Gen smart speaker.

Amazon Prime Day is almost here, and just before it kicks off, the company is unleashing some excellent early Prime Day deals, including some fantastic Amazon Echo deals on models new and old. Seriously, check them out, especially if you want a smart speaker with Alexa built in that can also control your smart home devices.

The 4th-generation Echo speaker, with premium sound, and Alexa built in, is on sale right now in all colors. You can choose from charcoal, glacier white, and twilight blue, and they all look awesome. Amazon has discounted it to $75 for a single speaker, and if you use coupon code ECHOPRIME at checkout, you get $80 off of two speakers, bringing the total price for both to $120.

The 4th-gen Echo is a sphere, offering more detailed sound compared to the low-profile design of past generations. Amazon claims it offers “clear highs, dynamic mids, and deep bass,” which should fill any room.

The new appearance earned it a spot in Digital Trend’s Staff Picks, a list of our favorite smart home tech of 2020. John Velasco particularly loved the “dazzling LED light ring,” and the “refreshing” orb-shaped look of the new design.

Alexa offers voice control support for all kinds of services, skills, and beyond. You can start and stop playback, interact with smart home devices (that are connected to Alexa), and ask questions. It also includes Zigbee support to act as a smart home device hub for devices that might not otherwise be supported by Alexa.

It’s the same Echo you know and love, and it connects with any other Echo devices to create a multiroom, hands-free, and seamless listening experience. You benefit most from an active Prime subscription, which includes access to hundreds of thousands of media. Of course, you can also use services like Spotify, Pandora, and even Amazon Music to play audio content.

With Amazon’s promotion, you can get a single 4th-gen Echo for $75, or two speakers for $120, when you use code ECHOPRIME at checkout. That’s $25 off a single speaker and $80 off the bundle of two speakers, as the original price is $100. We probably won’t see another deal like this for a while.

TCL 6-Series Roku TV, 2022 model.

Whether you're planning to buy a small TV on a tight budget or willing to splurge on a high-end TV, Amazon surely has an offer for you. You'll be able to enjoy massive savings if you take advantage of the retailer's TV deals, but you need to act fast because these discounts usually don't last long. While there are more options from other sources, here are our top picks for the best Amazon TV deals for those who want to purchase an upgrade for their home theater setup.
Insignia 32-inch F20 Series HD Fire TV -- $130, was $180

If you don't mind skipping 4K Ultra HD resolution and a massive screen in favor of a lower price, then you'll want to purchase the 32-inch Insignia F20 Series HD Fire TV. You'll be able to watch your favorite shows on HD resolution, and because the TV supports HDMI ARC, it can send audio directly from its HDMI port to a compatible soundbar or AV receiver to remove the necessity of an extra cable. The HD TV runs on Amazon's Fire TV, which not only supports all of the popular streaming services, but also grants access to the best Alexa skills. The budget TV even comes with an Alexa Voice Remote, so you'll be able to search for content, switch input sources, control playback, and many more using voice commands.

Amazon Echo Show 15 is $80 off with this Cyber Monday deal
Amazon Echo Show 15 hanging horizontally on the wall.

Some Cyber Monday deals may be available after today, but as of midnight tonight, you can count on the prices of Amazon Echo smart devices snapping right back to the full list price. Whether you look on Amazon or Best Buy, the deal prices will disappear. That being said, today, there are some truly attractive Cyber Monday Amazon Echo deals to be had; just don't forget until tomorrow. Best Buy's Cyber Monday $170 sale price for the Amazon Echo Show 15 smart display cuts $80 off the $250 full price. If you want the current best smart display available, buy it today while you can still save.

Why you should buy the Amazon Echo Show 15
Our Amazon Echo Show 15 review praised the 15.6-inch diagonal measure display on the Show 15, but a large screen alone isn't the whole story. The Show 15 supports multiple widgets, a class of utilities for notes, tasks, lists, schedules, photos, weather, maps, and more that can be pasted and moved around the display by family members. Because the Show 15's display real estate is relatively large, there's enough room for a generous selection of widgets. You can mount the Show 15 in landscape or portrait mode, depending on your wall space and personal preference. With an optional stand for the display, you also can place it on a table, cabinet, or desk.

Amazon’s superb Echo Studio speaker is just $155 for Cyber Monday
Amazon Echo Studio Alexa Smart Speaker

Thanksgiving has begun to feel like a distant memory as Cyber Monday deals have fully kicked off. Let's get you started on the right path toward the best bargains with this deal from Best Buy, which is offering an Amazon Echo Studio for just $155. It normally sells for $200, but Best Buy has cut the price by $45 for the online shopping holiday. This is a rate typically reserved for holidays, so it could very well be your last chance to grab a decently priced Amazon Echo Studio this year.

Why you should buy the Amazon Echo Studio
Why buy? Long-standing greatness. In our initial Amazon Echo Studio review, we noted that it was the best Echo speaker yet and that the Amazon Echo Studio's 360-degree Dolby Atmos audio gave our reviewer chills. That review was two years ago. Where do more recent assessments place the Amazon Echo Studio? Still quite favorably. Our recent writeup on the best Amazon Alexa smart speakers ranks the Amazon Echo Studio as the best Alexa speaker for audiophiles due to its "class-leading bass" and effective soundstage.
