Amazon has discounted the Echo Show, bringing it back down to its all-time lowest price of $149. The Echo Show is typically priced at $229, and the last time it was this low was for Black Friday. So it's definitely a good time to pick one up.
The Amazon Echo Show is exactly what it sounds like, it's an Echo device with a touchscreen that can be used for watching videos, or streaming video from your security camera that works with Alexa. It's a really nice addition to a regular Echo device, especially when you ask Alexa for things like the weather, as you do get those visuals showing you the weather. There are some security cameras that work with the Echo Show, like those from NETGEAR, so you can ask Alexa to show you the stream from that camera on the Echo Show (or your Fire TV if you have one), which can be very useful. With the Exho Show, you also have the ability to video chat with others over Alexa, seeing as the Echo Show does have a camera built-in, which can be pretty cool. Especially if you have an Echo Spot elsewhere in your home, you can use it as an intercom and talk with others in your home. This is not going to stay on sale for long, so you'll want to pick one up before it's gone.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $119/year (or $59/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
