Amazon’s Echo is down to $60, plus the rest of the week’s best tech deals

We have seen a number of instruments on sale this week as July draws to a close. The Amazon Echo smart speaker and Echo Show 5 have both been discounted, with the Echo now dropping to the same price as it was on Prime Day earlier this month. The Apple TV 4K is around $50 and drops to $130, and you can save $300 on a 16-inch MacBook Pro, too. DJI’s Action 2 combo bundle is still on sale for $279, and if you’re in the market for a new smartphone, Amazon will give you a free $50 gift card with your purchase of the new Google Pixel 6a. Here are the best tech deals of the week that you can still get today.

Amazon Echo

The full-size Amazon Echo speaker is down to $60, which is a return to its Prime Day price. We gave it an 89 rating for powerful sound quality, easy-to-use Alexa capabilities and the integrated Zigbee smart home hub.

Echo Show 5

The Echo Show 5 smart display is on sale for $40 right now, or just $5 more than it was on Prime Day last week. We gave the device a score of 87 for a compact and simple design, good sound quality and a tap to snooze feature.

Apple TV 4K

The Apple TV 4K is back in stock on Amazon and on sale for $130. While it’s not quite as cheap as it was on Prime Day last week ($109), it’s still one of the best prices we haven’t seen on our favorite set-top box. We gave the device a score of 90 for its fast performance, Dolby Vision and Atmos support, HomeKit integration, and the much-improved Siri remote.

The 16-inch MacBook Pro has dropped to $2,199, or $300, from its usual price. We gave it 92 points for its powerful performance, gorgeous Liquid Retina XDR displays, and a new set of ports.

Outdoor Flash + Mini Flash

Amazon includes a free Blink Mini camera with the purchase of the Blink Outdoor Kit, so you’ll save $35 total in the package. Blink cameras are a relatively affordable way to outfit your home with security cameras – they all record 1080p video and support two-way audio and motion alerts. The outdoor cameras are wireless and weatherproof, while the Blink Mini is a smaller, wired camera designed to fit into tight spaces inside your home.

Echo Show 15 + Echo Show 5

A bundle that includes the Echo Show 15 smart display and the Echo Show 5 is on sale for $250, which means you get the Show 5 for free. The Show 15 is Amazon’s most unique smart display because it’s a large TV-like device that you can mount on the wall and will show you things like calendar events, reminders, shopping lists, and more. It also allows you to video chat and watch shows and movies from services like Netflix, Prime Video, and others. The Echo Show 5 is one of our favorite mini smart displays thanks to its compact design, decent sound quality, and a handy tap to snooze feature.

DJI Action Camera 2


DJI’s Action 2 Power Combo bundle is still down 33 percent and comes down to $279. Package includes Action 2 camera, magnetic protective case and battery unit. Introduced last year by DJI Action 2 as a complete redesign of its Osmo Action cameras, it has an ultra-compact design coupled with a 12MP sensor that can capture 4K video at up to 120fps.

Instant Pot Vortex Plus Air Fryer

The 6-quart Instant Pot Vortex Plus Air Fryer is still 38 percent lower and coming down to just $99. This is a slightly outdated version of one of our favorite air fryers, and we love that it has six different cooking modes including air fry, grill and dehydrate, and it also has a transparent window on its drawer that lets you check your food while it’s cooking.

Logitech’s Litra Glow Soft Broadcast Light is on sale for $50 right now, or $10 off its regular price. Revealed earlier this year, the Litra Glow produces light designed to be comfortable on the eye so you can keep it on for multi-hour streams. It comes with five different presets for brightness and color temperature, but you can also create your own using Logitech’s G Hub software.

Solo Stove summer sale cuts up to $350 off fire pits, so you can get one for as low as $200. Discounts translate to $100 from Ranger, $180 from Bonfire, and $350 from Yukon. We love these fire pits because their double-walled designs reduce smoke while keeping the fire hot, and they’re stylish and relatively portable too.

Samsung 980 Pro SSD

The 1TB Samsung 980 Pro SSD that comes with the heatsink retails for $150, or 35 percent of its regular price. We love the PS5-compatible drive for its standard design, sequential read speeds of up to 7000MB/s, and practical optimization software.

It also has AES-256-bit hardware encryption and integrated power-loss immunity to protect your data.

The OnePlus 9 smartphone is 32% off and down to $500, which is the lowest price we’ve seen for it. We gave the phone a score of 88 when it was released last year for its great screen, excellent performance and an improved main camera.
