Electronics Deals – Oct. 9th, 2017: Amazon Echo Show, Roku 4K TV & More

October 9, 2017 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Ahead of its release of its new Echo products, Amazon has decided to discount some of its already available Echo products, like the Echo Show. Which is currently marked down to just $199. That is good for $30 off of its regular price, and is actually the first price drop the Echo Show has seen since it was announced earlier this year. Also on sale is the Amazon Tap for $79.99, and that’s $50 off of its regular price. Finally the Echo Dot is $5 off, coming in at $45. Not its lowest price, but it is still a discount. Definitely a good way to jump into the Alexa ecosystem, without spending a ton of cash right away.

If Alexa doesn’t whet your appetite, maybe this 55-inch Roku TV will, from TCL. Right now TCL’s 55-inch 4K Roku TV (with HDR, and this is the 2017 model) is down to just $398. Now at the time of writing this, it does say that it’ll take a few extra weeks to deliver, but you can still buy it, and at this price it’s a no brainer. It is typically $450, which is already a great price, but saving an extra $50 is also nice to have. And it has Roku built in, so you won’t need to buy a set-top box like an NVIDIA SHIELD TV, or a Roku Premiere+.

In the smartphone department, there are still plenty of great deals going on, including the Galaxy S7 coming in at just $199, the LG G6 is also around $399 and many more. The Xperia XZ1 Compact is also available for $599, and it’s proven to be a pretty popular smartphone so far, at least according to Amazon. So if you’re looking to pick one up, you’ll want to do so soon.

All of the deals listed below that have expirations dates expire at midnight PST on their respective dates. So if you are looking to pick one of these up, you’ll want to do so before midnight PST.

Amazon Echo Show

The Amazon Echo Show is currently experiencing its first price drop, coming in at just $199. That’s $30 off of its regular price. The Echo Show is the largest Echo in Amazon’s lineup right now, but it does offer some rather unique features. Like being able to stream your security camera onto the screen, from your Nest Cam, NETGEAR Arlo Q, or another camera that you may have in your home. Additionally, you do have Alexa built in, which means you have access to thousands of skills.

Samsung Galaxy S7

The Samsung Galaxy S7 may look fairly old, with it’s somewhat large bezels compared to what has been released in 2017, but it’s still a great device. And with a price of just $199 for an unlocked Galaxy S7, it’s hard to go wrong here. This is a GSM Galaxy S7 that is unlocked, so it can be used on other GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile here in the US.
