Sign up for Prime Day

You'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of Prime Day deals. You can sign up for a free trial, which will see you through Prime Day and which you can cancel after 30 days, or if you like the look of Prime then right now you can save £20 on a one-year subscription.

You don't need Alexa's assistance to work out that this is one of the best Amazon Prime Day 2020 deals around – £40 off the superior-sounding Echo Plus, down to £99 instead of £139.99.

The speaker gives you all the smarts of Alexa, plus better audio quality than the other Echo speakers, plus an integrated smart home hub (which means you don't need a separate hub to control your lights and other smart home equipment).

Make a £40 saving on the smart-home-hub-packing Amazon Echo Plus for Amazon Prime Day, which is also packing better speakers for a more pleasing audio experience than the other Echo devices.

The smart home gets smarter

For less than £100 you can be asking Alexa about everything from the weather forecast to the latest football scores. And the good news is that Alexa keeps getting better over time as Amazon adds more features.

The Echo Plus can act as the centre of your smart home too, letting you make requests like  "Alexa, turn off the lights" to take control of any connected bulbs you may have, for instance.

At this new low price there's really never been a better time to buy the Echo Plus, and if you already own Echo hardware, it will of course play nicely with it.
