The best cheap Amazon Echo deals and sales for March 2024

We’ve created this guide to bring you today’s best Amazon Echo deals, so you can bring Alex into your life and save money. The cost of adding a smart display or speaker array to your whole house can quickly add up, which is why it’s best to time your purchase with one of Amazon’s many sales on its own devices.

We’re also seeing some great updates to older models, which bring a range of speaker upgrades, new software, and a great time to snag Amazon Echo deals. Last year, Amazon released the Echo Pop smart speaker, a cheaper and smaller version of the 5th-generation Echo Dot, and the 3rd-gen Echo Show 8 which is Amazon’s latest eight-inch smart display.

If you’re looking for pure Alexa functionality, we’ve also got the best Echo Flex prices going as well. We’ve also got prices for the larger versions, including the Amazon Echo and Echo Studio. If you want a visual element, too, we’ve covered you with all the latest Amazon Echo Show smart displays.

Although Amazon designed and built these smart devices, they’re actually on sale at a large number of stores, which means they’re never far away from a discount. We’ll also list the standard price of each of these Amazon Alexa-powered speakers to better understand how good the latest discounts in the comparison charts are.

1. Amazon Echo Pop

Amazon’s cheapest smart speaker

Speaker size: 1.95-inch | Dimensions: 99 x 83 x 91 mm | Weight: 196 g | Launch price: $39.99 / £44.99 / AU$79

Amazon’s cheapest Echo speaker

Compact and stylish design

Impressive audio

Still pricey

Amazon’s all-new Echo Pop was released in May of this year and is now the cheapest Echo speaker available, with a starting price of $39.99 / £44.99 / AU$79. The Echo Pop features a stylish semisphere design and is available in new fun colors, including Lavendar and Midnight Teal.

Compared to the 5th-generation Echo Dot, the Echo Pop features a smaller, more compact size, making it a perfect speaker for a small space. The Echo Pop also comes with a larger speaker driver and Amazon Alexa built-in, so you can play music, ask questions and check the weather using your voice.

While this is the cheapest Amazon Echo speaker, we still recommend holding out for an Echo deal during holiday sales like Prime Day to snag an Echo Pop for as much as 50% off.

2. Amazon Echo Dot (5th gen)

The best-sounding Echo Dot

Speaker size: 1.73-inch | Dimensions: 100 x 100 x 89 mm | Weight: 304 g | Launch price: $49.99 / £49.99 / AU$79

Powerful audio

Temperature sensor

Eero built-in

No 3.5mm port

Amazon’s latest smart speaker, the 5th Generation Echo Dot, was released late last year with a starting price of  $49 / £54.99 / AU$79. The Echo Dot is the fifth iteration from Amazon’s smart speaker lineup and is its most powerful yet, with an improved audio experience with more bass and an enhanced range. The smart speaker also includes temperature sensors so you can control your thermostat with compatible smart home devices with your voice when you’re not home. Other features include new tap controls and eero built-in for increased Wi-Fi coverage.

While the compact smart speaker was just released, we’ve already seen Amazon Echo Dot deals with the best prices during holiday sales like Prime day.

3. Amazon Echo Dot (4th gen)

Powerful sound at a great price

Speaker size: 1.6-inch | Dimensions: 100 x 100 x 89 mm | Weight: 341 g | Line out: 3.5mm audio or Bluetooth | Launch price: $49.99 / £49.99 / AU$79

New voice recognition for kids

New spherical design

Fairly iterative features

Equally spherical, but much smaller, is the endearingly cute new Echo Dot – the fourth generation in the long line of excellent budget smart speakers from Amazon. Launching at just $49.99 / £49.99 / AU$79, it’s remaining one of the cheapest ways to get your hands on a voice assistant this year, but almost disappointingly, aside from its new eye-catching spherical design, improvements are mostly iterative.

That said, the new inclusion of Alexa Voice Profiles for Kid is a fantastic little feature if you’ve got kids in the house. This new child-friendly tech can recognize when a younger person gives voice commands and tailors its reception accordingly. So, if the child asks Alexa a question, they’ll get an appropriate response, animal sound alarms, and even help with their homework should they need it.

4. Amazon Echo (4th gen)

Premium sound in a circular design

Speaker size: 3-inch woofer and two 0.8-inch tweeters | Dimensions: 144 x 144 x 133 mm | Weight: 970 g | Line out: 3.5mm audio or Bluetooth | Launch price: $99.99 / £89.99 / AU$149

New Zigbee + Sidewalk

Upgraded speaker

Same launch price as previous iteration

Still no clock display

The 2020 Amazon Echo is the fourth generation in the long line of excellent smart speakers from the tech giant. No, your eyes don’t deceive you, it is indeed much, much more spherical than the 2019 iteration, but luckily all that extra space around the waist has been put to good use with some upgraded internals.

A new speaker array looks to provide an all-around much higher fidelity experience for music lovers, while the inclusion of the new Amazon Sidewalk and Zigbee support should help with smart home device compatibility across the board. You’re also getting a new ‘AZ1 Neural edge’ processor onboard, which Amazon claims helps speed up voice-command recognition by double – not bad considering this latest iteration is retailing for the same price as last year’s release.

The Amazon Echo Dot 3rd Gen in black

5. Amazon Echo Dot (3rd gen)

Speaker size: 1.6-inch | Dimensions: 4.3 x 9.9 x 9.9cm | Weight: 300g | Line out: 3.5mm audio or Bluetooth | Launch price: $49.99/£49.99/AU$79

Low price

Improved audio

Alexa’s getting smarter all the time

The older, standard 3rd iteration of the Echo Dot comes in three colors – charcoal, heather grey, and sandstone (that’ll be black, grey, or white to the rest of us). The hockey-puck-shaped speaker has a more refined look thanks to the fabric finish – far better than the older all-plastic version. The speaker driver is much larger too, going from 1.1-inches in diameter to 1.6-inches. It’s 70% louder than the previous version and keeps the aux 3.5mm connection for a secondary speaker. You can also connect it wirelessly to external speakers via Bluetooth.

6. Amazon Echo Studio

Excellent audio at an affordable price

Speaker size: Three 2-inch midrange speakers, 1-inch tweeter, 5.25-inch woofer | Dimensions: 20.6cm x 17.5cm | Weight: 3,500g | Line in: 3.5mm or optical line in | Launch price: $199/£189/AU$329

Excellent audio quality

Easy home cinema set up

Great price

3D audio hit and miss

If you’ve been watching the Echo Sub for a while, wishing you could just add the smart speaker into the fantastic sound for a complete package, you’ll want to check out 2019’s Echo Studio. The massive Echo smart speaker works as a complete high-quality audio solution that not only offers impressive sound quality for its price tag but can also easily create a home cinema with a Fire stick. 

Amazon has pitched their Echo Studio as low as possible in price – excellent times for all the bargain hunters out there. Don’t be fooled by that relatively low price either, this is a powerful speaker. While the 3D audio can be hit and miss, we found that the Echo Studio offered fantastic value for money with powerful sound and a wealth of features.

Way cheaper than the other Echo Shows

Decent alternative to the Google Home hub

Bedside table-friendly…

But a bit small otherwise?

This is the cheapest Amazon Echo Show you’ll find out in the wild right now. It comes with a smaller five-inch screen than the other Echo Show deals in this list, but if you’re after something for a bedside table display, or you simply don’t need another intrusive screen in your living room, the Echo Show 5 sit perfectly.

Compared to its bigger siblings, or Google’s rival offerings, you might find the screen a little small depending on where you’re going to be seeing it from after requesting something via the Alexa voice commands. Plus, you’ll be missing out on the improved display and audio quality of the more recent Show 8 as well. The huge selection of how-to videos is super handy though if you can plug it in close by, especially in the kitchen.
