Amazon Echo Show 8

Amazon's Echo Show 8 is one of the best smart displays on the market and you can grab one at a $55 discount right now. Down to just $75 at Amazon, this 8-inch touchscreen-equipped smart speaker is just $5 above the all-time low price set during holiday sales, though we expect the deal won't last for long. Best Buy and Target are matching the price. 

In certain areas of your home, a smart display makes much more sense than a traditional smart speaker. Not only do you benefit from all of the voice-based Alexa commands but there's a built-in touchscreen that works great for browsing recipes, watching video content, checking in on smart home security cameras or just seeing how long is left on your timer without having to ask. With a built-in camera, you can also use the Echo Show 8 for video calls and, when not in use, the device can operate as a digital photo frame. 

The model on sale is Amazon's latest Echo Show 8, the second-gen device from 2021, and features notable upgrades over the original model including a more powerful eight-core processor and a boosted 13-megapixel camera. The Echo Show 8 is the midsize option in Amazon's smart display lineup, but at today's price it's even cheaper than the entry-level Echo Show 5.
