The Amazon Echo Show line of smart displays take all the ingenuity of an Alexa speaker and combine it with a screen, letting you watch videos, video call friends and family, and follow recipes – and now, the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 have hit their lowest-ever prices in the UK with these Prime Day deals.

Usually £79.99, the Echo Show 5 has plummeted to just £39.99 – the lowest price we've ever seen. It had previously been reduced to £49.99, and now Amazon Prime members can get an additional £10 off. (Not in the UK? Scroll down for the best Echo Show deals in your region.)

Meanwhile, the Echo Show 8 has been reduced from £119.99 to £59.99, which is a huge saving of £60. Again, you'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of this particular deal.

The Echo Show 8 previously dropped to this super low price last year, and it's still a fantastic saving in 2020 – and if you want to get your hands on it, we'd recommend acting fast, as these Prime Day deals could sell out quickly, with the sale due to end at midnight tonight.

Both smart displays offer not only a handy screen to accompany your Alexa smart assistant, but almost ingenious integration with WikiHow that brings a bevy of useful how-to videos to the smart display.

It's little wonder that Amazon has slashed the price of the Echo Show 5 and 8 this Prime Day – after all, it's just launched the new Amazon Echo Show 10 (2020), which comes with Netflix support and an upgraded design.
