Amazon's Echo Show 5 Returns to Prime Day Price with Free Smart Bulb

One of the best October Prime Day deals is back ahead of Black Friday.

Amazon's second-gen Echo Show 5 is back on sale for just $35. Not only is this a $50 discount and a match for the all-time low set for the smart display during this month's fall Prime Day event, but you'll also score a free Sengled smart bulb (worth $15) to get your smart home started. The deal is a part of Best Buy's Black Friday sale which is already underway and the bundle is similar to one of the most popular Prime Day deals we saw a couple of weeks ago. The $35 price tag is being matched at Amazon, though there's no extra freebie there.

Smart displays are growing in popularity, as these versatile devices offer a range of features that include streaming video and music, checking the weather, setting alarms and displaying photos. There's even a built-in camera on the front of the Echo Show 5 for making video calls.

Released in 2021, this most recent Echo Show 5 features a 5.5-inch screen and 1.6-inch full-range speaker. Though its size may be a little small for using to stream long movies, it's useful for glancing at a recipe or timer while cooking. It would also be a great addition to an end table or nightstand and would be a huge upgrade over a traditional alarm clock. 

Alexa devices offer compatibility with a whole host of products, and the second-gen Echo Show 5 is no different. The included Sengled smart bulb can, of course, be controlled via Alexa and there are thousands of other smart home devices that you can enjoy using with your Echo Show.
