For many tech enthusiasts, Alexa, Amazon’s cloud-based voice-controlled virtual assistant, already feels like part of the family. Especially considering how intelligent voice recognition services can help us tackle household chores.
Just like any beloved sister or quirky aunt you might have in your family, Alexa has a birthday. But unlike the way your closest and dearest throws up for her birthday bash, Alexa’s is a little different, because she doesn’t just call the celebration.that is Sale.
To mark Alexa’s eighth orbit around the sun, Amazon is slashing prices on a number of Alexa-enabled devices, including the Echo Show 10, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and more. The event, which runs through Monday, November 7th, is a chance for holiday shoppers to slip some fun smart tech gadgets under their Christmas tree this year without going overboard. It becomes home security.
Some of the best deals you’ll find in the Alexa Birthday Sale are on Echo Show devices. Save up to 32% on the all-new Echo Show 15 (currently available at $170), which offers a Full HD, 15.6-inch, 1080-pixel smart display with a built-in 5-megapixel (MP) camera. Plus, get the sleek, spherical Echo (4th Gen) Smart Home Hub (compatible with smart lights, locks, and select Ring smart solar lights and bulbs) for 50% off the regular $100 I can do it.

Amazon’s second Prime Day of the year (and just a few weeks away from Black Friday) might seem like an Alexa birthday sale, but it is. In fact, many Alexa-enabled Amazon devices on sale today are priced lower than they were on Prime Day last month. If you’re wondering whether to buy a new tablet or streaming stick, consider this event a nudge in the right direction. Be sure to check back before the offer expires on Monday, November 7th.
