Listen, it’s up to you whether or not you want to partake in the annual panic-shopping event that is Amazon Prime Day. But if you do, Amazon is offering some pretty big discounts across the board on its Alexa-powered digital devices.
Amazon is cutting the prices on a few of its voice-activated speakers:
• The Echo will be discounted 50%, dropping from its regular price of $179.99 to $89.99
• The Echo Dot gets a $15 cut from its original $49.99, making it $34.99
• Amazon Tap is $50 off, at $79.90 instead of $129.99.
The sales start at 9 p.m. ET and last through 3 am. ET July 12, which yes, is longer than a day. For those who already own an Alexa-powered speaker, sales start two hours early, including some discounts exclusively for people ordering through Amazon devices.
