In the spirit of love, Amazon has kick-started its annual Valentine’s Day sale that’s cut the price of a swathe of items across its retail site. And of course, it wouldn’t be an Amazon sale without the firm cutting the price of its in-house smart speakers and smart displays, making now a great time to pick up your first connected home device or add to your existing collection.
Name an Amazon Echo model and it’s likely to be discounted in the sale. The retail giant has cut the cost of some of its most popular smart speakers and smart displays, including the Echo Dot, Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8.
Here’s a full list of Amazon Echo deals:
These deals come shortly after Amazon released a new feature for the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 that allows each to scan item barcodes so they can be seamlessly added to a user’s shopping list.
Of course, the feature is designed to get you to buy more of your shopping from, you guessed it… Amazon. However it certainly demonstrates the growing synergy between its smart speaker range and its gigantic retail site.
Those with compatible devices can enable the new feature by uttering a voice command like “Alexa, scan this item to my shopping list”, and away you go!
