In addition to the regular Echo smart speaker, Amazon sells an upgraded model called the Echo Plus. It offers improved sound and a built-in Zigbee hub for select smart home devices, and now you can get it for just $74.99. That's 50% off the usual price of $149.99. Plus, Amazon is throwing in a free Philips Hue smart bulb to sweeten the pot.
The Echo Plus is Amazon's high-end smart speaker, with improved sound and a built-in Zigbee hub over the base model. It's usually priced in the $100-150 range, but now you can get it for the lowest recorded price yet — $79.99.
Amazon's Echo is at the heart of the company's lineup of smart speakers and displays. For the ones who prefer a cheaper version, the Echo Dot comes in a smaller footprint but also with inferior audio. On the contrary, if you're looking for a higher-end speaker, there wasn't a proper offering until now, as the Echo Plus didn't offer much better sound quality than the Echo, but instead included a built-in Zigbee hub to control your smart devices. Back in September, though, Amazon unveiled the Echo Studio, a new high-end speaker built to compete with the Google Home Max. It's now available on the retailer's site for $200.
Christmas is coming in fast (it's a week from today, for anyone keeping score), and the window to finish up your gift shopping list is quickly closing. If you're in need of some earbuds, smart home accessories, or charging gear to round out your holiday haul, we've got you covered. Even better, if you order any of these items today, Amazon promises they'll arrive before Christmas morning.
The original Echo Plus is a bit old at this point, as it was originally released in late 2017, but it's still a powerful speaker with the added bonus of functioning as a smart home hub. For today only, you can grab one for just $50 — 67% off the original price, and 50% off the last official price of $99.99.
If you're thinking about making your home smarter, or just adding an extra speaker to your house, now would be a good time to do so. B&H is discounting the second generation Amazon Echo Plus smart speaker down to $104.99 for a limited time, and throwing in a free Philips Hue A19 bulb, otherwise worth $14.99. With this deal, you get $165 worth of products for just $105.
Amazon's hardware lineup occasionally gets a refresh, like with the new Echo Show earlier this year. But today is different. Amazon decided to announce six new products today, including sequels to the incredibly popular Echo speaker.
