Pick Up the Amazon Echo Show for $199 – 10/8/17

October 8, 2017 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Amazon has given the Echo Show its first discount since it was announced earlier this year. The Echo Show typically costs $229, but Amazon has taken $30 off of its price, bringing it down to just $199. This is a great price for the Echo Show, especially if you are looking for an Echo with a display.

The Echo Show is actually Amazon’s most expensive Echo, and there’s good reason for that. Largely due to that display. It has a display available for doing things like video calling with your friends and family, but also for dropping in on your smart security cameras that you may have around your home, like the Nest Cam IQ or the Netgear Arlo Pro. That’s a great feature for the Echo Show, especially if you have a camera outside. Additionally, you have access to the thousands of Alexa skills like ordering food through GrubHub, getting news headlines read to you by former vice president Joe Biden and many more.

This is also eligible for Amazon Prime’s free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap next-day shipping if you need it here extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime by hitting the link below. You’ll get 30 days free (if you’re a student, you get 6 months), and then it’s $99/year. Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
