It’s Prime Day weekend and Prime Day deals have already begun even though the Prime Day 2021 dates fall on June 21 and June 22. We already know that Amazon loves to discount its own products in the sales event as well as during the week leading up to Prime Day, particulalry Amazon Echo smart home devices such as the Amazon Echo Dot and Amazon Echo Show. This year as in years past we already see some great Prime Day Amazon Echo sales. Read on as we explain all and discuss whether you should buy an Amazon Echo on Prime Day or not.
It’s highly likely that Prime Day Amazon Echo sales will eventually include pretty much all of Amazon’s range of Echo devices. Prime Day often focuses on technology and Amazon is always keen to cut the prices on its own products for the big sales event.
That means we can expect throughout to see Prime Day Amazon Echo deals including the Amazon Echo Dot — both the 3rd generation and the 4th generation — along with price cuts for the Amazon Echo Show range. It’s also possible we’ll see a discount for the high-end Amazon Echo Studio too.
Last year, we saw some sizeable discounts on the Amazon Echo range of products. This included over 60% off the Amazon Echo Dot (3rd-gen) as well as 50% off the Amazon Echo Show 8 with its 8-inch HD touch display. There were similar Prime Day Amazon Echo sales on the Amazon Echo Show 5 too, with its smaller display, and a more modest 25% off the Amazon Echo Studio.
There were even discounts on the Amazon Echo Auto if you wanted to add such functionality to your car as well as your home.
We’re big fans of the Amazon Echo range here with our Amazon Echo (4th Gen) review and Amazon Echo Studio review all looking at the devices highly favorably. Even the battle of Google Home vs. Amazon Echo goes well for such devices.
Combined with the fact that Amazon tends to heavily discount its own products during Prime Day deals, it’s a good time to buy an Amazon Echo. While Black Friday sales might be a good bet, you’ll have to wait a number of months to enjoy your new device. Instead, Prime Day Amazon Echo deals mean you can benefit from it immediately. It’s a great way of making your home a little smarter than before and we can’t see the discounts being improved any time soon.
