Amazon Echo and Google Home devices get big price cuts for Mother’s Day

Amazon Echo and Google Home smart home devices have significant price cuts for Mother’s Day. Five years ago smart speakers and displays, if they had even existed, would have seemed unusual gifts for Mother’s or Father’s Day. Today, however, digital voice assistants help keep homes secure, entertain and inform family members, and cut energy costs.

Amazon Echo and Google Home are by far the two giants in smart home networks. As the two platforms continue to grow, aggressive price cuts for Amazon Echo and Google home devices help build existing smart home configurations and entice new buyers just starting. We’ve gathered the best deals on Amazon Echo and Google Home devices. These sixteen deals can help you save up to $100.
