Still on the hunt for that last-minute Christmas gift to blow a loved one’s socks off? We’ve all been there, but don’t fret, there’s still a chance to get a solid gadget for a great price thanks to the Amazon Last Minute sale.
However, the time left to pick up a good deal in this sale is rapidly disappearing, because Amazon is cutting off the 2019 deals on December 22, just before Christmas itself.
There are big discounts to be had on a bunch of products, like 4K TVs to electric toothbrushes and more, but what we’re most interested in right now are the deals on the Amazon Alexa-enabled Echo devices and smart speakers.
The current sales help you save up to £30 on the top-of-the-range models, which is a massive help if you’re pinching the pennies this year.
The first offer on the Echo Show 5 helps you save £30, meaning you’ll pay £49.99 for a tablet/speaker.
The Show 5 has been reduced from £79.99 right now and is a great device if you spend any time cooking, as you can follow recipes in the kitchen on the screen while using Alexa to set timers and play music to keep you motivated.
It has a 5.5″ display and, if you connect your Echo Show 5 to the internet, can play YouTube videos, movies or TV shows (all with voice control), or even do video call to friends and loved ones while you’re busy in the kitchen or living room.
If you want a little more bang for your buck, you can get the older model of the Echo Show bundled up with the Philips Hue White Bulb E27 for £169.99 reduced from £234.98.
The Philips bulb is Alexa compatible, so you can dim the lights or put them on a timer to turn on or off when you walk into a room or leave, which gives your living room a particular futuristic feel.
Next up, check out the Echo Plus, which is probably the Alexa device you’ll recognise the most.
During the sale, the Echo Plus has been reduced from £139.99 down to £109.99, giving you your own personal assistant for much less than it was previously.
This price has a little bonus, as it’s actually bundled up with a Philips Hue Screw Bulb, which is compatible with Alexa, so you can turn the lights on or off using just your voice.
The Echo Plus itself is a powerful speaker in its own right, with a really solid audio quality playing music in complete 360-degree rotation, so you can place it in the middle of the room and get the same quality across the whole space.
You can also call people up, change the track or adjust the volume using your voice.
Finally, you can pick up the helpful Echo Flex right now for under £20 thanks to the sale.
It has been discounted from £24.99 down to £19.99 right now and is a great way to boost Alexa’s reach around your home.
The Flex plugs right into a socket to interact with any Alexa-enabled devices in the room, turning on lights, adjusting the thermostat or automatically locking doors with just your voice.
