Don’t miss this excellent Amazon Echo 2 Cyber Monday deal
The Amazon Echo 2 is just one of Amazon’s many Alexa devices, and though many companies have tried copying it since, no one has quite come close to the Echo’s quality and affordability. Thanks to the bountiful blessings of Cyber Monday, it’s now never been easier, or cheaper, to get your hands on this sweet smart speaker.
Right now, you can buy an Amazon Alexa and a smart plug – £115 value – for just £70 from Currys PC World.
The Echo 2 is a small, inexpensive, and great sounding speaker that usually retails for around £90. You can read all about it in our review, but the gist is that, as a speaker, it rocks and as a smart device, it’s one of the best out there. The smart plug is a little lesser-known than other smart home devices, which is a real shame as it’s a cool addition to any smart home. Anything plugged into the smart plug can be voice controlled through Alexa, and you can also give it a schedule using the app. Unlike a lot of smart home devices, no hub is required – just an Alexa device.
£70 is a great deal, but you can get it even cheaper, if you’re willing to wait. You can buy the Echo and smart plug bundle directly from Amazon for £65, but only the special edition red version is in stock, and it won’t be released until 5 December. All others will be restocked on 18 December, but you’ll still pay the lower price if you order now. Whether or not waiting a few weeks is worth £5 is your call, but to sweeten the pot Amazon is also tossing in 3 months of Amazon Music Unlimited to anyone who buys an Echo through its store.
