Amazon Echo deals
The Amazon Echo is the standard version of the speaker, and this is the second generation of the device. This new version is a little shorter than the original, and it has an upgraded speaker powered by some neat Dolby processing.
This is the 'just right' option in the Echo lineup. It's not as budget as the Amazon Echo Dot nor is it as premium as the Amazon Echo Plus.

Amazon Echo Dot deals
The Amazon Echo Dot is the smallest of the Echo speakers. It manages to save this space by including a much smaller speaker, which consequently offers a much weaker sound. The good news is that if you want to do some serious music listening then you’re able to plug the Echo Dot into an external speaker using its 3.5mm jack. It’s also a great deal cheaper than the original Echo, meaning that it’s a great way of cheaply getting Alexa into your home, or perhaps adding a second speaker to your setup.

Amazon Echo Plus deals
The Amazon Echo Plus, as its name implies, is the bigger and better version of the Amazon Echo that was released in 2017. It's actually similar in size to the original Amazon Echo, but next to its second generation it looks a lot taller.
The difference between the Echo and the Echo Plus is the inclusion of slightly better speakers on the Plus, as well as a smart home hub that theoretically removes the need for other hubs to be plugged into your router to get different smart home devices working.

Amazon Echo Show deals
The Amazon Echo Show is one of only two Echo devices that come equipped with a screen. After releasing first in the US, the speaker has more recently made its way to the UK.
Like its siblings, the Dot, the Plus and the Echo, the Show can play music, control your smart home and make calls to other Echo devices.
However, what makes it different is that its display allows you to get visual information as well as audio. That means you'll be able to see the name of songs while they're playing, read recipes right off the screen, or see more in-depth five-day weather forecasts without asking Alexa to repeat herself time and time again.

Amazon Echo Spot deals
The Amazon Echo Spot is a miniature version of the Amazon Echo Show.
It's got a much smaller screen that's designed to show you little pieces of information rather than let you catch up on the latest series of The Grand Tour. But that might be more than enough if you just want to quickly check directions or read a news bulletin.
The Spot has been available in the US for a little while, but has just made its way to the UK. Check out today's best deals below.

Amazon Echo (2014) deals
The original Amazon Echo might be looking a bit long in the teeth these days, but its age means that you're likely to get it at a deep discount.
It might not have the improved speakers or Dolby audio processing of the newer models, but this is still a very capable entrypoint into the Echo ecosystem.
