It's not Black Friday for a few more days, but Amazon's Echo smart speakers are among those enjoying early discounts - and some incredible savings, particularly on older-generation models.

The Amazon Black Friday sale is on now, running until 25 November – see our full coverage. You can see all Amazon Black Friday deals on its dedicated page.

However, we're already seeing Echo deals trickle in however, with Amazon's Countdown to Black Friday sale. Many of these offers are with smart lighting bundles – scroll through the carousel below to see all such Amazon Echo deals.

Best Amazon Echo deals right now

We've scoured Amazon and beyond for the best Echo deals and have collected them here.

Amazon's smart speaker range has grown over the years with the Echo (1st, 2nd, and 3rd generations), the Echo Plus, and Echo Dot – and don't forget the the Echo Show and the smaller Echo Spot, both of which feature a screen.

There are now even more Echo devices to choose from with the upgraded Echo Dot (3rd generation) and the Echo Plus 2. The Echo Sub, Amazon's deep bass subwoofer, is also new to the family (due to return in stock on Amazon UK on 18 December).

You can buy the Echo Sub on its own or get it as a part of the Echo Stereo System bundle which saves you £60 and includes two Echo (2nd generation) devices. You can also opt to get the Sub with two Echo Plus devices, which saves you £100.

Finally, and somewhat different to Amazon's speaker devices, is the Echo Input that's due to release 12 December. The Input allows you to add Alexa functionality to any external speaker via Bluetooth or a 3.5mm audio cable. You can pre-order or sign up on the product page to get an email notification once it's ready to order.

Right now, there's a £35 discount on an Amazon Echo Input and UE Boom 3 Wireless speaker bundle. View this deal here.

What's the best Amazon Echo?

We will be reviewing the new Echo devices once they are available. In the meantime, check out our existing reviews on all other Echo devices to see which one is right for you:

Finding a good deal on the Echo is not extremely straightforward. Amazon does have sales on its devices every few months or so, and during major events like Prime Day, but you would have to closely follow the site to snag them on time. We're expecting to see discounts on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Elsewhere, large retailers like Currys PC World or Argos often match Amazon prices when Echo devices go on sale – so you're unlikely to find prices that go any lower than Amazon's. That does not mean, however, retailers won't find other ways to be competitive through bundle offers – which works for us deal hunters.

Echo deals and bundles on Amazon

Right now, Amazon has a staggering £30 off the Echo Dot 2, which is now £19.99. That's an extra fiver off the price off the more recent Echo Dot 3, and a good saving if you can live without the newer features.

The Echo Stereo System, that includes two Amazon Echo 2 devices and one Echo Sub also saves you £60 when bought as a bundle. It comes in stock 18 December, but you can order it now. Get this deal here.

There is also the Echo Plus Stereo System that pairs two Echo Plus 2 devices with the Echo Sub, which saves you £100 from buying the devices separately. This also becomes available 18 December. Get this deal here.

Amazon bundles Echo devices with Philips Hue smart lighting too. While this may not directly cut the cost of the device itself, you do save overall if you're interested in making your home an Alexa-enabled one.

Right now, you can get up to £39.60 off with an Echo Dot 3 and Philips Hue White Starter Kit (E27) bundle. The Echo Plus (1st gen) with a Philips Hue White E27 bulb has £14.95 off. Also save £14.95 with a Echo Show 2 and Philips Hue White Bulb (E27).

Amazon certified refurbished Echo deals

A great way to save on Echo devices directly from Amazon is through buying refurbished. Refurbished prices can save you up to 54% off the RRP on other Amazon devices too, like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets.

Certified refurbished devices go through rigorous testing (hence "certified") to ensure products are just like new. You also get a separate 1-year limited warranty. Click here to see all Amazon Certified Refurbished deals.

In the US, there are a lot more options for certified refurbished Amazon devices:

Currys/PC World Echo bundle deals
