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

The Echo Show 5 scored a very solid score of 85 in our Engadget review, as its small size is ideal if you don’t have a lot of space on your desk, bedside table or counter. It has a 5.5-inch screen with a 960 x 480 resolution that displays things like weather forecasts, calendar events, photos and more.
The 2MP camera can be used to video chat with friends and family, but can also be used as a kind of 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 good idea. And if you’re thinking of buying that model for a youngster, 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 handy video calling functionality. The digital pan-and-zoom face tracking feature follows you as you move to keep you in view, and works with any video calling app out there. 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 great father of Amazon’s smart display products. You can of course use it to control compatible smart home devices and pair it with Echo speakers for richer audio. Family members can have their own profiles, using speech and facial recognition to access personalized content such as reminders, appointments and music. The only downside is that it doesn’t come with a stand as it is intended to be wall mounted. Still, you can grab one for $250 (an $85 discount), and Amazon throws in a free Echo 5 to boot.
