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: For a limited time (but sure to be repeated, as it was just last month), the Amazon Echo Show 5 is on sale for $64.99. Although it has sold for as low as $50 as part of a QVC deal, it's still a full $25 off the list price and an undeniably good 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, which costs $129.99 and isn't due to ship until November. 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.
