Amazon’s Echo Show smart displays with Alexa voice control are already good value alongside the competition, but a number of offerings make them even cheaper. The Show 5 is the best currently on sale for just $40, or 53 percent off the regular price. And if you want a bigger screen, you can find great deals on Show 8 and Show 15 – including a free Show 5 with the latter.

The Echo Show 5 scored a very solid 85 in our Engadget review because its small size is ideal if you don’t have a lot of space on your desk, nightstand, or countertop. It has a 5.5-inch display with a 960 x 480 resolution that shows things like weather forecasts, calendar events, photos, and more.
The 2MP camera can be used for video chatting with friends and family, but it can also be used as a kind of makeshift surveillance camera. And if you prefer privacy, the Show 5 has a built-in camera shutter and microphone mute button. It was already a good deal at $85, but at $40 it’s a no-brainer. And if you’re thinking of getting this model for a teen, the Echo Show 5 Kids with parental controls is also available for $50, or 47 percent off the regular $95 price.
If you’re looking for a larger screen, the Echo Show 8 performed well in our test, too, thanks to its sleek, minimalist design, vibrant 1280×800 display, and handy video calling feature. The digital pan and zoom face tracking feature follows you as you move to keep you in frame and works with every video calling app on the market. It also offers stereo speakers, making it one of the best sounding smart displays out there. You can pick one up for $80, just above the lowest price we’ve seen.
With a large 15-inch screen, the Echo Show 15 is the grand daddy of Amazon’s smart display products. You can of course use it to control compatible smart home devices and connect it to Echo speakers for richer sound. Family members can have their own profiles and access personalized content such as reminders, appointments and music using voice and face recognition. The only downside is that there is no stand as it is intended for wall mounting. Still, you can snag one for $250 (an $85 rebate), and Amazon will throw in a free Echo 5 to boot.
