Finding the best deal for Alexa is tough. Amazon’s smart assistant is available on dozens of devices, from speakers to screens, and even a microwave.
In a rare move to celebrate the ‘birthday’ of the smart speakers, Amazon has slashed the price of the Echo Show 8 in half.
Overall, we think Amazon’s Echo Show 8 is the best device out there for people who aren’t comfortable with an iPad or smartphone – and Amazon has a rare discount on it right now. They’ll even throw in a free addon such as a smart plug so you can control lights and other appliances by voice, or a one year subscription to the Food Network. You’ll need to click below to reveal the full discount.
You can also make free calls, play music and do everything from playing games (we have a guide here) to your weekly shop.
Amazon has also made a similat cut to the slightly smaller Echo Show 5, which is even cheaper – although we think the 8 hits the sweet spot in terms of screen size, particularly if you want to use it as a digital picture frame.
In fact, there’s an explosion in games for seniors – who have been dubbed ‘grey haired gamers’.
A recent study from AARP found a 14% increase in the number of adults age 50-plus who play online or video games on a monthly basis.
It’s also an incredibly powerful computer you can use to watch videos, search the internet and do almost everything you’d want from a computer – all without lifting a finger.
