One of Best Buy's deals of the day features the 1st-generation Amazon Echo Show 8, a smart display, on sale for $63.99. The deal is available in Sandstone or Charcoal. Amazon has price matched the deal as well but only in Sandstone. Given this is an older generation device, its street price does tend to fluctuate a lot more than something newer. The regular price jumps between $80 and $110, but today's deal is the lowest we've ever seen directly from either retailer. In fact, this deal is $1 better than the Echo Show 8's Black Friday sale from last year.
So what do you get with the Echo Show 8? Well, the eight in the name denotes the size of the screen, so you get an eight-inch screen with 1200 x 800 pixel resolution. It's also capable of stereo sound with its built-in speakers and can be used to display a variety of things or play your favorite media. Keep the display in your kitchen and follow a step-by-step recipe, listen to a new audiobook, or just watch some random videos. Display a photo album that shows off all your favorite pictures or create a morning routine to start your day.
The Echo Show 8 has Amazon Alexa built in so you can talk to her like you would any voice assistant. You can get the weather, recap the news of the day, or control your smart home. Adjust the thermostat, turn on the lights, and more. It even works with other smart devices like Amazon's Blink cameras so you can view your security feeds from anywhere.
