Amazon's Prime Day Echo deals have now ended for 2023. We saw big discounts delivered to pretty much all Echo speakers and smart screens, with many enjoying their lowest prices ever over on Amazon's online store – but those deals all ended strictly at midnight on July 12.
Amazon Prime Day events always plenty of offers on its range of Echo products, but we were very impressed by some of the deals this year, including the new Echo Pop dropping to only $17.99, and the Echo Show 5 hitting half price.
We rate the Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Studio among the best smart speakers you can buy in 2023, so the deals were well worthwhile – but you'll have to wait for the next sales event for anything similar. That might not be until the Black Friday deals start, though we'd bet on there being a price drop between now and then.
