It's only been out for a few months now, but it's clear to see why the versatile Echo Show 5 is Amazon's best Echo device to date. This streamlined version of the original Echo Show is a bit more compact and much more affordable, with an integrated smart display that let you watch videos, control smart home devices, talk with Alexa, and more. The device debuted this past May for $89.99, though Amazon has a special offer for those looking to buy two of the Echo Show 5 today. Adding two to your cart and entering promo code SHOWFIVE2PK during checkout will save you $30 off your order, dropping the total to $149.98. That's still more affordable than a single original Echo Show, and it means you'll be snagging each one for just $75 apiece.
Amazon's Echo Show 5 is equipped with a compact 5.5-inch smart display that can show you the weather, news reports, movie trailers, and more, or you can listen to radio stations, podcasts, audiobooks, and music streaming services like Apple Music or Spotify. It's best utilized as a hub for any smart home devices you have too, as it allows you to voice control any compatible devices using Amazon Alexa.
There have been a lot of privacy concerns regarding Amazon Alexa and the Echo devices as of late, which is why the latest Echo Show 5 comes with a feature that allows you to delete all of your old voice commands by speaking prompts such as "Alexa, delete everything I said today". For more on the Echo Show 5, check out Android Central's review which rated it with 4.5 out of 5 stars; this video by Modern Dad shows off some important details as well.
There's an even better deal available on the Echo Dot smart speakers right now; Amazon's offering two for the price of one for a limited time, meaning you'd be picking them both up for just $50 total, though you'll need to enter code DOT2PACK during checkout to snag that discount.
