Though only released a couple of months ago, Amazon's all-new Echo Show 8 instantly became the best Echo Show of the bunch. Sitting between the Echo Show 5 and the original Echo Show in both size and price, today the decision of which to pick is even easier than usual as its price has fallen back to its Cyber Monday discount and you can get it with a bundled Echo Dot at no extra cost. All told, you're paying $79.99 for $180-worth of products when not on sale. The devices are understandably a touch backordered after the Black Friday and Cyber Monday events of last month and holiday buyers picking them up recently, though you can still lock in this price now and your devices will ship as soon as they are ready. Alternatively, snag this deal at Best buy and you may get your items sooner.
The all-new Echo Show 8 is equipped with an 8-inch HD display and Amazon Alexa's voice assistant which will let you check the latest news and weather, control your smart home, watch TV, and more. Bundling with a Dot lets you put Alexa in more rooms.

Amazon's Echo Show line is easily the most versatile of its Echo devices. Rather than just being a smart speaker like the majority of Echo devices, the Echo Show also has a built-in screen that lets you view your photos, movies and shows from services like Prime Video and Hulu, weather forecasts, and more. Best of all, you just simply have to ask Alexa to find what you're looking for. These devices can control compatible smart home devices too; ask Alexa to turn off your Philips Hue lights when it's time to go to bed or turn on your Fire TV right before your favorite show starts. The number in the Echo Show's name refers to its screen size, so the Echo Show 5 has a 5-inch screen while the Echo Show 8 has an 8-inch screen. The original Echo Show is the largest with a 10.1-inch display.
You'll also receive a third-generation Echo Dot, a smart speaker that you can place somewhere else in your home for easy access to Alexa's audio-based smarts. Check the weather. Control smart home appliances. Set timers and alarms. Make shopping lists. All of it with just a few spoken words and a Wi-Fi network. It can also stream music not just from Amazon Music Unlimited but other services like Apple Music and Spotify, too.
Sure, you might be able to save a bit by choosing the smaller Echo Show 5 on sale for $59.99, but the improvements made to the new Echo Show 8 and the Echo Dot freebie are easily worth the extra $20 today. You can learn more about both devices in this Echo Show 8 vs. Echo Show 5 guide and then follow it up by taking a look at the Best Echo Show in 2019 overview. (Spoiler alert: it's this one).
