                    <p>We love the Echo Show 8. In fact, in <a href="">our review for the device</a> we called it the "the best Amazon smart display, period". 

This an incredible price for a very cool device. Jump on it.


A nice little combo deal that will save you $49. Hard to argue with that.


Kindle Unlimited is sorta like the Netflix of books. If you're a big reader it's fantastic deal. On this deal, it's free for three months, then it'll cost you $13.99 per month. Worth a try for sure.

If reading's not your thing, why not try Audible instead. I've long thought about getting into audio books, especially now that podcasts are such a huge thing. This is a great chance to trial Audible out for 3 months.

Coming down from $299 to $199 is nothing to sniff at, particularly if you have any interest in putting together a massively linked up sound system in your house.

Right now you can take $150 off the Amazon Echo Link Amp, taking the price from $459 to $309.
