Amazon Echo

Prime Day is finally here, and now you can scoop up an Amazon Echo for only $129, today only.

On any given day, it’s not uncommon to see deals on a few of Amazon’s first party gadgets, but the discounts are usually modest, and relegated to less popular products. Today’s not any given day though: It’s Prime Day, and the deals are bigger and broader than we’ve ever seen.

The star of the show here is the shockingly great—and rarely discounted—Amazon Echo for $50 off, one of the best deals we’ve seen. This thing was awesome when it first came out last year, and it gets better every week. I got one a few months ago, and don’t know how I’d live without it now. The less-beloved Amazon Tap is also $30 off.

Note: Act fast because supplies are limited!

Here’s the key details: 

  • Plays all your music from Prime Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more using just your voice
  • Fills the room with immersive, 360º omni-directional audio
  • Allows hands-free convenience with voice-control
  • Hears you from across the room with far-field voice recognition, even while music is playing
