Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod get generous discounts

Choosing what smart home products are right for you is really about choosing the right voice assistant. With Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod all using separate assistants, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. On the one hand, Amazon Alexa offers a huge range of integration. There are tons of smart plugs, smart bulbs, TVs, cars, and microwaves that work with Alexa — making it the most widely integrated of the three. On the other hand, though Google Assistant is still a bit behind, a lot of people prefer interactions with this A.I. over Alexa.

Whether you’re in the market for an Echo or a Google Home smart speaker, the price is likely going to end up playing a big role in your purchasing decision. Amazon and Walmart are both offering generous discounts on smart home bundles, speakers, and displays right now. With discounts up to $65, now is a great time to add a little extra smart to your home.

Amazon Echo Deals

Amazon Echo (2nd Generation) — $30 off

Though the Amazon Echo Dot is still about $20 cheaper, this discounted second-generation Echo is a great option for anyone looking for a solid hub. It comes with Alexa built in, allowing you to connect to other smart devices, have the news read to you, play music, and get questions answered just by asking. Its powerful Dolby speakers play 360-degree audio with clear vocals and dynamic bass response. You can even call and message almost anyone, completely hands-free.

Normally priced at $100, a $30 discount drops the price to just $70 on Amazon.

The Echo and Echo Dot are both great for smaller rooms, but if you want something with a little more power, the second-generation Echo Plus is an excellent option. Though the Echo and Echo Plus are fairly similar, key differences in audio and smart home connectivity make the Plus worth the extra $50. When it comes to audio, the Echo Plus does a significantly better job defining treble and bass — offering more well-rounded sound. It also comes equipped with a Zigbee smart home hub built in, which allows you to connect to smart home devices directly.

Normally priced at $150, the Echo Plus is down to just $120 on Amazon. You can also get a free Phillips Hue Bulb with your purchase, saving you a total of $45.

The traditional Amazon smart speakers are great, but they are missing one key element: Video.

Additionally, you can make video calls via Skype without having to lift a finger.

Normally priced at $230, the all-new Echo Show is on sale for just $180 on Amazon. It also comes with a free Phillips Hue Bulb, saving you a total of $65.

It also comes with access to YouTube, which you can’t get through the Echo Show without going through a third-party app.
