The second-generation Amazon Echo Show 8, a smart display that’s powered by Amazon’s Alexa, is currently on sale for just $60 instead of $130 from Amazon. With the recent launch of its successor, the device is back down to its lowest-ever price for savings of $70, but we’re also not sure how long it will take before stocks are all gone. If you’re interested in taking advantage of this offer, you’re going to have to hurry with your purchase because it may disappear sooner than you expect.

Why you should buy the Amazon Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen)

The second-generation Amazon Echo Show 8, released in 2021, features an 8-inch HD touchscreen, stereo speakers, and a 13MP camera. You’ll be able to use Alexa for functions such as searching for a recipes, getting updated with the latest news, accessing your other smart home devices, playing streaming shows, and many others all through voice commands. When you’re making video calls with the Amazon Echo Show 8, you’ll automatically stay at the center of the frame even when you move around the room.

Between the second-generation Amazon Echo Show 8 and first-generation Amazon Echo Show 8, the advantages of the 2021 release of the smart display include an upgraded onboard camera to 13MP from 1MP, and smoother performance with a faster processor. Meanwhile, the third-generation Amazon Echo Show 8, released a couple of months ago, looks very similar to the second-generation Amazon Echo Show 8, with the major changes being the move of the camera from the corner to the center, the addition of spatial audio, and the inclusion of a built-in smart home hub. If you’re fine skipping these features, then you won’t be missing out on much if you go for the second-generation Amazon Echo Show 8.

If you want to pair Alexa with not just a speaker but also a screen, then you should consider going for the second-generation Amazon Echo Show 8. It’s available from Amazon for only $60 — its cheaper price ever — for $70 off its original price of $130. The 54% discount is among the largest that you can get from today’s Amazon Echo deals, but you need to act fast if you want to get the second-generation Amazon Echo Show 8 for less than half-price because stocks are probably already running low with the release of its successor.

You can get one of Amazon's Echo devices for next to nothing during Cyber Monday deals. For example, the Echo Pop can be yours for just $18 instead of the usual $40, which is a significant 55% discount on the usual price. That means you could get two of them for the list price, so it's perfect if you want to deck out your house with them, but be sure to grab them up a soon as possible since we don't know how long the deal will last.

Why you should buy the Amazon Echo Pop
The Amazon Echo Pop is the most affordable way to gain access to Amazon's Alexa, according to our guide on which Amazon Echo should you buy. With its low price, you shouldn't expect that its sound will fill large areas like its more expensive counterparts, but it's more than enough for bedrooms and small spaces. The smart speaker is also compact with a front face that's just about 4 inches across, so you won't have trouble finding a spot where to place it, and it features three buttons at the top, two for adjusting the volume and the third one to disable the Amazon Echo Pop's microphone until you activate it again.

Tap the button below to see more about the floor mat yourself, or keep reading to see why I like it so much.

Why you should buy the Hodeamy Heater Floor Mat
Last year, I was suffering from a recurring bout of unreasonably cold feet for reasons I never figured out. Wooly socks were not enough, but the Hodeamy Heated Floor Mat did the trick. It heats up quickly to a level of your choosing and provides warmth across the whole of the pad. It's pretty spacious (the manufacturer says 15.35 inches by 17.72 inches) and I felt the natural resting position of my feet hit within the warmth of the pad with minimal efforts.
