Amazon is gearing up for Prime Day on July 16th (it starts at noon PST/3 p.m. EST) by releasing some deals on their best devices early.
To get ready, the online retailer is rolling out pre-Prime Day sales to get Prime members excited for the deep discounts being offered on Monday. So, from now until the end of Prime Day, Amazon is slashing $100 off of the Echo Show.
Usually retailing for $229.99, the Echo Show is essentially the immersive video version of the Amazon Echo. While it features the same functionality of the Echo and Echo Dot with the voice assistant Alexa, the Echo Show adds a video display for a more interactive experience.
So now you can see video flash briefings and weather updates, Amazon Prime Video movies and TV shows, photos, music lyrics, shopping lists, and much more. You can even use it as a video monitor for security cameras and video calls. And since it’s Alexa-enabled, it’s all hands-free.
REVIEW: Amazon Echo Show will transform your relationship with Alexa
Keep it in the kitchen or living room as the central hub for your smart home. You can also keep it on a nightstand as an interactive video alarm clock to get instant weather and news updates as soon as you wake up. The possibilities are endless with the Echo Show and Alexa.
The promo is only good for Prime members, so if you’re not a member yet, you can sign up here and get $100 off the Echo Show. Along with free two-day shipping, you can also take advantage of all the savings on Prime Day. After the discount, the Echo Show is $129.99. Not bad!
