Cyber Week is here! These deals are the best available right now, though you may need to be quick as some will sell out.
Amazon's Echo deals continue for Cyber Week. You can snap up an Alexa smart speaker with an amazing discount today.
As we suspected, the latest additions to the Echo line now join their siblings in the sale, with £21 off Echo Dot 4 and Echo Dot with Clock, and £30 off the Echo (4th gen). But the biggest deals are on the older models with the outgoing third-generation Echo Dot now down to a crazy £18.99.
Should Amazon run low on stock amidst these crazy prices, remember that it is not the only stockist of Echo speakers. These deals are often matched by the likes of Currys, Argos and John Lewis, and our price-comparison charts below update daily.
Right now Echo Dot purchases get you six month's free Amazon Music Unlimited - Prime members should click here to take advantage, and here's the link for non-Prime members. Read more about Amazon Music Unlimited and how it compares with Prime Music.
Best Echo Dot (4th-gen) deals
There is a new Echo Dot - brand-new, having only gone on sale in October 2020 - and it comes with an updated design (shown below alongside the new Echo 4 so you can see the size comparison) and a faster processor. Alexa is more responsive than in the third-gen model, and the spherical design makes for better bass, despite the new model featuring the same speaker hardware. Of course, the third-gen model, while still available, is a tenner cheaper. Read our full Echo Dot 4 review.
Best Echo Dot (3rd-gen) deals
The Echo Dot is Amazon's cheapest smart speaker (the Flex isn't really a speaker - it's more of a utility device). With Alexa built-in it is capable of all the same things as the pricier Echos, but you don't get a display and audio quality is naturally inferior, but still surprisingly good. With a retail price of £49.99, buying an Echo Dot is the best way to try Alexa in your home without investing too much, and it's also the cheapest way to get an Echo in every room of the house when you ultimately decide you love it. Read our full Echo Dot review.
Best Echo Dot with Clock deals
The Echo Dot with Clock has been updated in line with the non-clock version of the Echo Dot (4th-gen). It's the same thing, but with a visible readout of the time, alarms and timers, and it adds a £10 premium to the price. The Echo Dot with Clock retails at £59.99. Read our full Echo Dot with Clock review.
Best Echo (4th-gen) deals
In line with Echo Dot, the standard Echo speaker has also been updated in late-2020. The fourth-gen model is a winner. Thanks to the inclusion of the smart hub - and temperature sensor - you get more for your money as well as slightly better sound quality. Don’t forget the new AZ1 processor: this makes Alexa respond faster and will bring more benefits as Amazon rolls out Alexa’s more natural-sounding voice. Read our full Amazon Echo (4th-gen) review.
Best Echo Studio Deals
The Echo Studio is the top-of-the-line Echo without a display. With a full retail price of £189.99, it's cheaper only than the 10in Echo Show. If you want the ultimate in sound quality, this is the Echo for you, with support for hi-res audio and 3D sound making this a significantly cheaper rival to Apple's HomePod and the Google Home Max. A large slot on the front allows bass from the 5.25in woofer to pour out, and the Studio also has two 2in speakers and a 1in tweeter inside, each positioned to deliver truly room-filling audio. Plus there's a built-in Zigbee hub for controlling compatible smart home kit. Read our Echo Studio review.
Best Echo Show 5 Deals
The most recent addition to Amazon's Echo line is the Echo Show 5, a smart display that is beaten on price only by the Echo Dot with a retail price of £79.99. Amazon builds in a 5.5in display, which is ideal if you want a screen but also a more compact device than the standard 10in Show. Read our full Echo Show 5 review.
Best Echo Show 8 Deals
Echo Show is now also available in an 8in version - same thing, just bigger. Read our full Echo Show 8 review.
Best Echo Show Deals
The second-generation Echo Show is an Alexa smart display with a 10in screen. Retailing at £219.99 it's quite a bit more expensive than anything else in the line, but it also has a usefully large HD screen and packs decent audio with excellent volume and plenty of bass. Read our full Echo Show review.
Note that a newer model has been announced in the Echo Show 10 (3rd generation) and will go on sale before Christmas.
Amazon's Prime Day and Black Friday sales are now over, while Cyber Week continues. We expect that it will be immediately followed by the Christmas, Boxing Day and January sales.
Regardless, Amazon offers some great deals all year round. When an Echo device goes on sale at Amazon it is also found at this reduced price at official stockists including Currys, John Lewis and Argos, so be sure to also check these outlets as stocks run low.
