Alexa devices

Smart speakers

Smart speakers let you enjoy your favorite music, audiobooks, and podcasts using voice commands or a smartphone app. They connect to your WiFi network, so you don’t have to worry about a bunch of wires getting in your way.

Amazon’s Echo speakers are compatible with Alexa, Amazon’s cloud-based virtual assistant. You can also control other smart home devices through your Echo. Alexa's 8th birthday sale event is an excellent time to pick up a smart speaker because Amazon usually offers deep deals on these devices. 

This year, the Echo Dot 4th Generation, Amazon’s most compact smart speaker, is a safe bet to get discounted. Based on previous deals, you may be able to score it for as much as half off. 


If you’re interested in a high-fidelity smart speaker, the Echo Studio may be available at a reduced price this year. It offers immersive sound with five speakers that produce clear, crisp audio. The Echo is an ideal alternative if you don’t want to splurge but still want premium audio — and you can likely pick it up for its lowest price during Alexa's 8th birthday sale event. 




Smart displays

Smart displays combine the benefits of a smart speaker with a handy touchscreen that lets you enjoy videos or look at photos. Through your display, you can use Alexa to check your calendar, make calls, create shopping lists, search the web for recipes, and more. 

During Alexa's 8th birthday sale event, you can expect to see a discount on the Echo Show 8. It has an 8-inch HD touchscreen, stereo speakers, and a 13-megapixel camera with auto-framing, making it a perfect option if you’re new to smart displays. 



On the other hand, if you’re looking to upgrade your current display, Amazon’s newest model, the Echo Show 15, should also be on sale this year. It has a 15.6-inch full HD display that’s easy to read from across the room. It’s even wall-mountable, so you can hang it on the wall to display photos or digital artwork. 


On-the-go devices

If you want to take the convenience of Alexa with you on the go, Amazon has several portable devices that should be on sale for Alexa's 8th birthday sale event. 

The Echo Auto is designed for use in the car, connecting to the Alexa app through your phone and playing through the car’s speakers via the auxiliary input. You can control all your smart home devices, so you turn the lights on at your house as you drive home from work. You can also play music, make calls, and check the news. So if you’ve been curious about this device, Alexa's 8th birthday sale event is the perfect time to pick it up.


Amazon also offers Alexa-enabled Echo Buds 2nd Gen, which should be on sale this fall. These truly wireless earbuds offer dynamic sound and active noise cancellation, so you can enjoy your favorite music, podcasts, and more, no matter where you are. 


If you’re into cool new tech gear, you might also want to check out the Echo Frames 2nd Gen price during Alexa's 8th birthday sale event. These smart audio glasses let you use Alexa hands-free, so you can make calls, listen to music and audiobooks, send texts, and more when you’re out and about.



Fire devices


Amazon Fire tablets are probably Amazon’s best-known products — and with good reason. These affordable tablets let you enjoy a wide array of content, including videos, music, audiobooks, podcasts, games, and more. They’re all Alexa-enabled, too. Alexa's 8th birthday sale event is a great time to pick up — or upgrade — a Fire tablet because they’re sure to be available for a deep discount.

This year, the Fire HD 8 is a safe bet to be on sale. It offers an 8-inch HD screen and expandable storage that can satisfy most users. However, if you prefer a larger screen, you may want to consider the Fire HD 10, which is also expected to be discounted during Alexa's 8th birthday sale event. It has a 10-inch HD screen and is compatible with Echo devices.


If you want to get more done with your tablet, though, we expect the Fire HD10 Productivity Bundle to be another can’t-miss Alexa's 8th birthday sale event deal. Not only do you get a Fire HD 10 tablet in the bundle, but a Bluetooth keyboard and a 12-month subscription to Microsoft 365 Personal, so you can use the tablet for Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more. 



You may also want to keep the Fire HD 8 Kids Tablet on your radar for the little one during Alexa's 8th birthday sale event. It’s likely to be on sale and provides access to more than 20,000 child-safe apps, including games, videos, and books. The Amazon Parent dashboard also makes it easy to control your kids’ access.



Streaming devices

Whether you’re subscribed to Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+, or all of the above, you need a streaming device to enjoy your favorite movies and shows. Amazon’s Fire TV devices are some of the most popular. 

The Fire TV Sticks were the brand’s first entry into the market and are still some of their best sellers. While they’re already affordable, you can score an even better deal on the Fire Sticks during Alexa's 8th birthday sale event. 

We expect the Fire TV Stick Lite to be on sale this year. It’s already the most budget-friendly model, but it’s likely to be discounted even further. It’s an excellent option if you’re new to streaming devices because you only have to plug it into the back of your TV and connect to the internet to enjoy your favorite media. 


If you want a movie theater-quality picture from your streaming stick, though, the Fire TV Stick 4K should also be on sale this fall. It offers 4K Ultra HD and comes with an Alexa Voice Remote, so you can search for your favorite movies and shows with your voice. 


The Fire TV Cube should be discounted, too, if you’re looking for more power from your streaming media player. It has a Hexa-core processor to provide a fast 4K streaming experience, and you can control it with just your voice for fully hands-free operation. 



You don’t need a separate streaming device if you invest in a smart TV. Amazon offers several Fire Smart TVs that connect directly to the internet for streaming services and provide a simplified home entertainment set-up. 

Amazon is also offering deals on a few of its TVs this year. The Fire TV 43-inch Omni Series is a model we expect to see discounted. It offers an excellent 4K Ultra HD picture and lets you stream from all the most popular streaming services. 



Amazon Kindle E-readers are some of Amazon’s first products, but they’re still popular today. They’re ideal for avid readers because you can store all your books on a single compact device without lugging a bunch of heavy books around with you. 

The Kindle Paperwhite will likely be on sale. It has a 6.8-inch display with an adjustable warm light and offers up to 10 weeks of battery life. It can store thousands of titles, too, and even withstands splashing with water to allow for safe poolside or bathtub reading. 


If you want a fully waterproof e-reader, though, the Kindle Oasis should also be discounted. It has a 7-inch display that easily switches from white to amber, depending on your preferences. It allows for faster page turns and is compatible with Audible, Amazon’s audiobook catalog, through Bluetooth headphones or speakers.  


Smart home devices

Smart thermostats

A smart thermostat can help you save money on energy costs and make your home more comfortable. If you’re looking to reduce your energy usage, Alexa's 8th birthday sale event is the ideal time to buy one of Amazon’s devices.

The Amazon Smart Thermostat will likely be on sale this year and is perfect if you’re looking for your first smart thermostat. It features Honeywell Home Thermostat Technology backed by more than 100 years of home cooling and heating experience for superior performance. It takes 45 minutes or less to install and lets you set energy-efficient schedules to control the temperature in your home. You can also use Alexa to control the thermostat via voice commands. 



Smart plugs

If you’re trying to incorporate more smart home devices into your house, smart plugs make it easy and affordable to gain control over existing devices. They can plug into any outlet and connect to the internet, so you can control the light, appliance, or other device that’s plugged into them via an app.

The Amazon Smart Plug should be discounted for Alexa's 8th birthday sale event, so you may want to pick up more than one. These plugs work with Alexa, so you can use voice commands to control the outlets. They work well for turning on lights, fans, and other appliances according to your schedule. They’re easy to set up and offer a compact design, so your second outlet won’t be blocked. Thanks to the Alexa app, you don’t need a smart display to use the plugs, either.



WiFi systems

Whether you’re working from home or battling with the kids for time on your home’s WiFi, you want to ensure you have a reliable internet connection for all your work and play needs. Mesh WiFi systems can make it easier to set up a dependable network throughout your home and enable you to control the system via a convenient app. 

For Alexa's 8th birthday sale event, the Amazon Eero 6 Dual-Band Mesh WiFi 6 Router should be available at a discount. It offers WiFi coverage for up to 1500 square feet at speeds of 900 Mbps. More than 75 devices can also connect to the router without slowing the network down, and it’s easy to expand the system if you need additional coverage. 



If you already know you need a stronger WiFi system, we expect the Amazon Eero 6+ Dual-Band Mesh WiFi 6 System to be on sale this year as well. It can support speeds up to a gigabit for a super-fast, efficient WiFi network. It’s also easy to set up and secure your network, so you don’t have to worry about common online threats. 


Halo devices

Fitness trackers

Amazon is relatively new to the fitness tracker game, but it has introduced the Halo line, which can track various fitness and health-related information. 

This fall, the Halo View should be on sale to generate interest in the product. It does all the basics, such as tracking steps, heart rate, sleep, and blood oxygen levels, but it can also measure your body fat percentage via your smartphone camera and the Halo app. It’s Alexa-compatible, too.


We also expect the Halo Band to get an Alexa's 8th birthday sale event discount. It does everything the Halo View does, but it’s also waterproof up to 50 meters, so you can swim in it. It has a screen-free design to limit distractions and works with other fitness apps, such as Weight Watchers and Orange Theory. It can even track and measure your mobility, stability, and posture, so you can be sure you’re moving as often and well as you should.
