Amazon Prime Day 2021: Alexa Echo Dot $25, Echo Show 5 $45, bundles and more (Update: Expired)

Prime Day 2021 so far has some of the deepest discounts we've ever seen on several Alexa smart speakers and displays, both new and previous-gen.

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET's guide to everything you need to know and how to find the best deals.

Editor's note, June 23: Prime Day has officially ended at Amazon, but Walmart's sale continues throughout Wednesday. Check out the best Prime Day deals still available, and some other favorite Prime Day deals that are hanging on. 

Make some noise, Alexa fans -- Amazon Prime Day is officially rounding the third turn with deals galloping toward the finish line with less than a day left to order. As expected, the most popular Amazon Echo smart speakers are on sale the flagship Echo, Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock have been discounted to historically low prices, as have Amazon Echo Show smart displays like the first-generation Echo Show 8 and Echo Show 5.

Some of the more niche Alexa devices, like Echo Auto, which puts Alexa in your car, and Echo Frames eyeglasses that put Alexa on your face are also deeply discounted. 

This and all our other Prime Day deals pages will continue to see updates as more and better discounts appear and some start dropping off. For now, here's our picks for the the best deals you'll find on Amazon's Alexa devices.


As if it wasn't good enough already to discount the popular Echo Dot Alexa speaker to an all-time low of $25 (see below) -- this listing also throws in a bonus color smart bulb at no additional charge. Sengled makes budget-priced smart lighting products, but the company made our list of best smart bulbs for cheapskates.

Amazon previously offered this discount only for Prime members who purchased two Echo Dots, but now you can buy just one and get the $25 price. This is the best deal we've ever seen on the latest-gen Echo Dot.

The spherical Amazon Echo has spent most of its short lifetime since hovering between $80 and $100, but for Prime Day 2021, Amazon is offering the best deal on the full-sized smart speaker we've seen yet: $60. Over the last few days, this deal was packaged as two for $120, but with Prime Day now officially underway, you can buy a single Amazon Echo for this historic low price.

Amazon recently updated the Echo Show 5 with a better camera and another color option. Meanwhile, the first gen Echo Show 5 has been marked down from $80 to $60 -- but Prime members can get it for $45 during Prime Day.

Normally $250, you can grab the latest generation of the Echo Show 10 for $190 if you use Alexa voice ordering. Unlike earlier iterations of this smart display, the Echo Show 10 features a built-in motor and cameras that can track you around the room while you're chatting.

Amazon's latest-gen update to its Echo Show 8 smart speaker comes bundled here with a Blink Mini security camera for $105, which represents a $25 discount (the full retail price of both would be $165). Will the price drop even further? We'll have to just wait and see.

The second generation of Amazon's Echo Show 8 drops from $130 to $95, a nice $35 discount. The device features an 8-inch HD touchscreen for viewing photos, watching videos from apps like Netflix or Amazon Prime Video or making video calls using the 13-megapixel camera. If you don't want to bundle any additional smart home items, this is a good deal on a device we found to be one of the best Alexa smart displays.

If you just need cheap access to Alexa and don't expect to play a lot of music on the device, the 3rd gen Echo Dot is just as good as any and it's even cheaer than the current model, at $20.
