Original Echo $50 off 1-day sale (Monday July 24 Pacific)

The original

Amazon Echo (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

(“The Tower”) is $129.99 today, $50 off the normal price of $179.99. It says that’s today only, Monday, July 24th, Pacific time.

Both the black and the white are on sale, although neither is in stock right now. The black one is expected in stock on August 11th, and the white one on August 16th (although they might beat that).

That’s the only model on this one day sale, although there are some other deals.


Echo Show (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

still has the buy 2, save $100 deal (which I now wish we had done), and the

the All-New Echo Dot (2nd Generation) – White (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

lets you save $20 when you buy three of them.

People ask if this means a new model is coming…in this case, I think it might. Amazon may want to improve the sound quality to compete with Apple’s home Siri, when they are emphasizing the sound quality.

As always, check the price before you click/tap/eye gaze that Buy button…the price may not apply in your country, and the sale may be over before you see this.

When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help! 🙂

    It seems strange: a one day sale — yet they are out of stock with a two to three week delivery estimate. It doesn’t feel like inventory clearance. Why would they lower the price for one day, if the coffers are empty? Testing price sensitivity?

    Given the competitive Echo devices either on or shortly coming to market at lower prices from the likes of Apple, Google, Harmon Kardon, etc., it seems to me that the original Echo is a bit over-priced. $129 seems like a better price point for the current market. Also I think the Dot is the much better buy.

    It may not be new Alexa devices coming from Amazon, but Alexa devices coming from 3rd party H/W manufacturers that might lead to a permanent price restructuring.

    Right now to me Amazon’s various Alexa devices and features seem to be a bit of a jumble — not very coherent at all. I currently have a Look and a Show sitting on the shelf while I ruminate how I might want to use them, and is Amazon going to do anything more on the S/W side for these devices, and are more Alexa smartphones in the wings? I’m waiting (hopefully not for Godot :grin).

    I was doing some management of my kindle books’ collections residencies from the manage my content page, and there was a web crawl advert that cloud collections can now be managed for personal documents and audible books on the MYCD page. I don’t know if collections for these two items are new, or is it just something new in managing collections on the MYCD page?
