As a bonus, you can also add a Blink Mini Smartcam or TP-Link Smart Plug for just $ 5. You can also add a 1-year subscription to the Food Network Kitchen Cooking App for free. Read our Echo Show 5 review.

Right now, you can buy Show 8 for $ 105. While this deal is likely to improve in the coming days, $ 25 off one of the best smart displays in the world is a great option.
What makes the offer more appetizing is the free addition of a 1-year subscription to Food Network Kitchen, an app to assist with cooking. Just make sure you select the option before you check out. Read our Echo Show 8 review.

The brand new, spherical Amazon Echo smart speaker from Amazon ships on October 22nd, and the company already has a small deal on the device. When you check out when you use the discount code ECHO2PK$ 30 will be deducted from the total of $ 200 for the purchase of two new Echo speakers.
If you want an Echo for yourself and one for a family member or friend, this isn’t a bad deal – and I would be surprised if the price of the new Echo speaker dropped much further in two weeks’ time before its launch.
