Amazon Echo Show 5 deal: $65 (save $25)

Normally $90, this Echo puts Alexa and a handy 5.5-inch screen anywhere you need them.

Tyler Lizenby/CNET

Take it from The Cheapskate: You should never, ever pay full price for any Amazon device. Ever. That's because they go on sale all. The. Time. Case in point: The Amazon Echo Show 5 is once again selling for $64.99. Although it's been priced as low as $50 (back on Black Friday), this is still a full $25 off the list price and an undeniably decent deal.

The Echo Show 5 is an Alexa-powered 5.5-inch smart display that was recently joined by the 8-inch Echo Show 8 (currently on sale for $90, FYI). Though the Show 5's smaller screen seems more at home on a nightstand than, say, a kitchen counter, it can certainly sit anywhere you'd benefit from quick access to photos, YouTube videos and the like. (I'm starting to wonder if I'd like one on my desk.) Plus, its built-in camera -- which has a physical shutter for privacy -- makes it an appealing option for video calls.
