I've been a long-time Echo user, and every year my collection seems to grow because of Prime Day deals, but this year I am trying something new. Normally, I stick with just the regular Echo Dot because it's always so cheap and it's simple, but this time I am going to give the Echo Show 5 a try instead. This will be my first Echo device with a display, and quite honestly my first smart display as a whole.
Earlier today I bought the Echo Flex which will be great to have in the kitchen, and I think the Echo Show 5 will make a great addition to my desk. This year's Prime deals make it drop down from $90 to $44.99, which is a 50% discount on the 5.5-inch smart screen. I may have waited a little too long to make the decision, as there's now a slight shipping delay, but at least I can get it ordered at the discounted price, and you should consider it as well.
Amazon is offering 50% off the Echo Show 5 smart display for a limited time! This offer is exclusively available for Prime members and saves you $45 instantly. This device features Alexa and allows you to control compatible smart home devices with your voice. It's also able to stream movies and shows, music, YouTube videos, and more.
I really like the fact that I can have the Echo Show 5 display my to-do list, calendar, photos, and much more while it sits on my desk. I can also use it to ask for random facts, to control my smart home, see who's at my video doorbell, and oh so much more as well. You can also do things like watch videos, make video calls, and some other stuff, but honestly I can't see myself using those features all that much, if even at all.
Amazon also has a few bundles available for the Echo Show 5, including ones that offer 3 months of Amazon Kids+ for 99 cents more, a free one-year Food Network Kitchen subscription, a $5 smart plug or a $5 Blink Mini camera. You really can't go wrong with picking the device up by itself, or grabbing one of the available bundles to make it an even better value.
As mentioned above, there is a shipping delay right now, and delivery times vary by color. Be sure you get your order in now, so that you can get one as soon as there are more instock instead of having to wait longer.
