Meeting up with Mom this Mother’s Day may still be a little dicey, depending on where you live (and your vaccination status), but don’t you think she deserves a little more than a quick phone call come Sunday? Hmm?
Lord knows she still can’t figure out Zoom, so before we head into the holiday weekend, pick up the next best thing: an Amazon Echo Show smart display that can make hands-free video calls for her. As of May 5, the online retailer had three of them on sale (for up to 44% off!) as part of a broader Mother’s Day Device Deals event starring all of its latest gadgets — that way, you can gift one and snag a second to keep without making a noticeable dent in your wallet.

Amazon’s mid-range Echo Show 8 “sits in the Goldilocks zone of smart displays,” to quote our pals over at PCMag (which is owned by Mashable’s publisher, Ziff Davis): “It’s much more powerful than the Echo Show 5, and it costs just over half as much as the 10-inch Echo Show.” Highlights include a crisp HD display, some surprisingly good audio, and as of last fall, support for Zoom’s video conferencing software (just in case any parties in your call don’t manage to grab an Echo Show of their own before Sunday).
Typically $129.99, Amazon’s got it on sale for just $74.99 (a 42% savings). For anyone keeping track at home, that’s just $10 away from its all-time-low Cyber Monday pricing.
The newest and fanciest smart display in Amazon’s lineup, the third-gen Echo Show 10 (which also comes with Zoom support) features an adaptive HD display that automatically moves with you; an upgraded camera that “pans and zooms” to keep you centered and in focus during calls; and a built-in Zigbee smart home hub that lets you control compatible smart devices using voice commands. Oh, and speaking of: For a limited time, all Echo Show 10s come with a free Ring smart bulb (a $14.99 value) that works in virtually any indoor or covered outdoor fixture.
Order one off Amazon today for just $199.99 — that’s 20% off its usual retail price of $249.99, which is its biggest discount yet.
Released in mid-2019, the no-frills Echo Show 5 is a budget-friendly countertop companion with a compact touchscreen and all sorts of helpful Alexa commands. Note that while it doesn’t offer Zoom support at this time, it can make video calls to the Alexa app or any other Echo device with a screen.
You can score it on sale for just $49.99, or 44% off its $89.99 MSRP — that’s just $5 away from its record-low Black Friday price.
