Amazon's Echo line is not only smart, but affordable. But once you are bitten by the smart speaker bug you'll be adding these devices all around your home, so any savings you can make are worth having.

Amazon's holding an end of summer sale right now (until 30 August), with some great discounts on Echo products:

The next sale will be Black Friday in November, but Amazon offers some great deals all year round - especially if you're interested in buying multiple Echos or combining them with other gadgets such as an Amazon Smart Plug, Philips Hue smart bulb or a Ring doorbell.

Right now Echo purchases also get you 90 days of Amazon Music Unlimited for free, which is two months longer than the existing 30-day trial. Read more about Music Unlimited and how it compares with Prime Music.

When is the next Echo sale?

Echo speakers always see big discounts for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Christmas, Boxing Day and January sales, Easter sales and Amazon Prime Day. They may also go on sale at other points throughout the year, and we'll alert you to any promotions within this article.

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.

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.

You can also find Echo deals from third-party sellers in the US. Newegg, sometimes has bundle deals on Echo devices. See all Echo deals on Newegg here.

Of course, eBay is another place to check for Echo deals. Remember to see the seller's ratings and any seller reviews before making a purchase though. See all eBay Echo deals here.
