Amazon’s Echo speaker is $80 cheaper right now when you buy two

As a fan of smart home speakers, I can tell you that once you
have one device, you start thinking about the best spot for a
second one. Right now, Amazon
and
Best Buy
are trying to help make that situation easier
by offering a discounted two-pack of the
Amazon Echo
smart speaker. Both retailers are offering two
Echo speakers for $80 off—or $280 total, instead of
$360. (For Amazon, use coupon code ECHO2PACK at
checkout.)

We haven’t looked at the Echo since mid-2015. In the meantime
Alexa, the Echo’s smart home assistant, has added numerous
third-party integrations (“skills”). These skills allow you to
get the news and weather, order pizza or an Uber, or check your
American Express balance. They also allow you to control your
smart home devices through the Echo, including lighting
systems, camera-enabled doorbells, and smart thermostats.
Amazon has a list of
all available Alexa skills
on its website.

The speaker deal is Amazon’s “other” big Echo deal right now.
Earlier in May, Amazon introduced the
Amazon Echo Show
, a touchscreen Echo device that Amazon

discounts by $100 when you buy two
.

The Echo Show deal lasts until June 28, but Amazon hasn’t put a
specific expiration date on the Echo speaker deal.
