PSA: Amazon is dropping unreal deals left and right. And this one is just too good to ignore.

Right now, you can score an Echo Show 8 for $64, down from $110. At over 40 percent off, now’s your chance to pounce. This is the only Echo device that works with the Zoom Cloud Meetings app! So get ready to take your video chats to the next level.

This little gizmo is so hot, it’s earned a perfect five-star rating from more than 99,700 reviewers.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (By the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Small and sleek

The Echo Show 8 has a compact, crisp 8-inch display, so it’s perfect for a kitchen counter or desk. And thanks to Alexa built-in, it doubles as a mini entertainment hub. Access videos, TV shows, movies or the news with Prime Video, Hulu, NBC and more, plus listen to internet radio stations, podcasts and audiobooks via Amazon Music, Spotify and Audible.

“…It was easy to set up and the app was easy to set up and understand,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “Everyday I learn something new that Echo can do. The screen quality is good…So far have used it to check on the weather each day, play a couple of short games. Listen to national news from CBS…”

It can even be used as a digital photo frame when not in use, thanks to Amazon Photos. “…The screen resolution is very nice for the photo displays. You can sync an assortment of photos through the Amazon Photo app or select a category for the Echo 8 to display for you…” added another five-star reviewer.

Video chats and recipes

The mid-sized smart display is fantastic for video chats via Skype and Zoom too. “My Mom was failing at Zoom and Skype. I set the Show up for her and practiced a couple of times,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “She can initiate a call to us with no issues. I think the larger size and dedicated functions were the turning point for her. Wish we bought it sooner!”

It can also be your kitchen counter companion; ask Alexa for step-by-step instructions on how to make everything from buttermilk pancakes to veggie lasagna. You’ll get access to Food Network Kitchen, as well.

Said a five-star reviewer: “We keep the Amazon Show 8 in our kitchen, and the whole family enjoys using it. Display is the perfect size on the kitchen counter. We enjoy playing music (sounds great) and of course, we enjoy asking Alexa for the temperature or the weather forecast, and asking basically any question you can think of. Recipe feature is excellent too!”

The reviews quoted above reflect the most recent versions at the time of publication.
