Most of Amazon's devices are deeply discounted for Prime Day

No surprises here — Prime Day 2020 has brought a slew of deals on Amazon’s own devices. While Prime Day as a whole is a bit unpredictable when it comes to specific sales, it’s almost a guarantee that at least a few Amazon-made devices will be on sale.

As years have gone by, Amazon has come out with a ton of Alexa-enabled devices and acquired companies that make devices that now work with Alexa. You can find all of them and their respective deals on Amazon’s device page, but we’ve collected the best of the best here so you don’t have to search for them.

Echo speakers

Echo Dot - $18.99

3rd generation Amazon Echo Dot

The previous generation Echo Dot hits its lowest price ever during Prime Day —only $19. Amazon just came out with the 4th-generation model, but aside from updated design and a few internals, both Echo Dots do the same things. If you’re looking for the most affordable way to get an Alexa-enabled speaker in your home, this is the deal to grab.

Echo Show 5 - $44.99

The Echo Show 5 is on sale for $45, which is an all-time-low for the tiny smart display. We gave it a score of 85 for its ambient light sensor and sunrise alarm feature, solid sound quality and physical camera shutter. Amazon also has a great bundle deal that includes the Echo Show 5 plus a Blink Mini Indoor smart camera for $50.

Echo Show 8 - $64.99

The Echo Show 8 is a small step up from the Echo Show 5 and now you can grab one for $65. The lowest it’s been before today was $80, so you’re getting a solid deal if you want a smart display with a bit more screen space than the Show 5 has. It’s a versatile device that could act as a nightstand alarm clock or a small TV on your kitchen counter.

Echo Show (2nd-gen) - $149.99

But if you want the most screen space possible, the 2nd-gen Echo Show is the device to get and it’s only $150 for Prime Day. Normally priced at $230, this is the previous model of the Echo Show — Amazon just debuted a new Echo Show 10 with a screen that swivels to follow you so you’ll always have a good viewing angle. But if you don’t need a moving smart display, the 2nd-gen Echo Show remains a solid alternative.

Amazon’s best sounding smart speaker is now available at an all-time-low price of $149.99. That’s $50 off its normal price and a great deal if you’ve wanted an Alexa smart speaker that actually sounds good. We gave it a score of 88 for its hi-res audio, excellent sound quality and ability to be used as a home theater speaker.

The Echo Flex smart adapter of sorts is on sale for $9.99, which is its lowest price ever. This gadget is ideal for those that want to be able to call upon Alexa, but don’t have space for a dedicated smart speaker. Amazon calls it a mini smart speaker because it does play music like other smart speakers, but at the end of the day, the Flex is best at hearing Alexa commands and acting upon them.

Echo Auto - $19.99

Just make sure to check that your car is compatible with the Echo Auto before you buy it.
