We’re nearly in September and that can only mean one things: the back to school, college, or university rush is coming to a close, but not before Amazon has one final price cut on its most popular Echo devices and the Fire HD 8 tablet. Looking to furnish a new place or accessorise your current one? Amazon’s Echos are perfect.
Amazon has been working hard for years to make the Echo devices, and the Alexa assistant contained within them, more stylish, useful, and capable and the work has really paid off. The Echo Plus, for example, is one of the best connected smart speakers around while the Echo Dot offers a puck-like design backed up by the might of Alexa, meaning it can do basically whatever you want.
The Fire HD 8 tablet is perfect for kids or anyone else who wants a cheap-and-cheerful tablet that can do most things other higher-powered Android tablets can do. If you want something to curl up in bed with and watch Netflix after a hard day
procrastinating studying, look no further.
The deals all range in size, but one things is clear: Amazon is offering some of its best connected tech with big price cuts for a limited time: the deals end on September 1st, so make sure you don’t sleep on them and miss out.
