Amazon’s Echo Show smart displays with Alexa voice control are already good value compared to the competition, but a bunch of deals are making them even cheaper. Show 5 is the best, it sells right now 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 Exhibit 15 — including a free show 5 with the last one.

The Echo show 5 scored a very solid 85 in our Engadget review, as its small size is perfect if you don’t have a lot of desk, nightstand, or counter space. It has a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 960 x 480 that shows things like weather, calendar events, photos, and more.
The 2MP camera can be used to video chat with friends and family, but it can also be used as a makeshift security camera. And if you’d rather be concerned about 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 kid, the Echo Show 5 Kids with parental controls is also on sale for $50, or 47 percent off the regular price of $95.
If you’re looking for a bigger screen, the Echo Show 8 also scored highly in our review, thanks to its sleek, minimalist design, vibrant 1280 x 800 resolution display, and convenient video calling feature. Digital face pan and zoom follows you as you move to keep you in frame, and works with any video calling app. It also offers stereo speakers, making it one of the best-sounding smart displays available. You can pick one up for $80slightly above the lowest price we’ve seen.
With a large 15-inch screen, the Echo Show 15 is the big daddy of Amazon’s smart displays. Of course, you can use it to control compatible smart home devices and connect it to Echo speakers for richer sound. Family members can have their own profiles, using voice and facial recognition to access personalized content such as reminders, meetings and music. The only downside is that it doesn’t come with a stand as it’s designed for wall mounting. You can though get one for $250 ($85 off), and Amazon is offering a free Echo 5 to charge.
