Amazon is still taking $100 off of the price of the Echo Show, but that is only if you buy two of these. That brings the price down from $230 each, or $460 total, to $360 total or about $180 each. That’s a pretty decent price for the Echo Show, and definitely a good deal to jump on. You could buy one for your house and then get the second one to use as a gift this holiday season. Seeing as the holidays are right around the corner.
The Amazon Echo Show was announced at Amazon’s big surprise event last month, and it is a major overhaul over the first version. The Echo Show sports a 10.1-inch HD display, that can be used for interacting with Alexa, as well as watching videos (but not YouTube), browsing the web and so forth. There is also a camera included which works for doing video calls, but it is also used to see when someone is in the room and turn on the display to show information like the time and weather. Now it is no recording you the entire, which is important to note, but it can also have the camera turned off if you wish to do so. Alexa is built-in, so you can ask the Echo Show to do a number of things, and if you have a compatible security camera, you can even bring up the stream on the Echo Show.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime’s free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You’ll get 30 days free (if you’re a student, you get 6 months), and then it’s $119/year (or $59/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
