Amazon finally dropped the date of the much-anticipated Prime Day 2021. The 48-hour event will start on June 21 and run through June 22 (Pacific Time). That’s about a month earlier than we expected! But don’t fret; our team combed the web to find the best Echo Prime Day deals, so if there is an Echo product you’ve been eyeing for months, this may be the best time to click “add to cart”.
Prime Day 2021 Echo Deals
Details on Prime Day 2020 Echo offers are still sparse as of the moment. Amazon doesn’t really like announcing deals in advance until just before the day, so we may have to stay put for now. However, by looking at Prime Day deals from previous years, we could get a sense of what’s probably coming this year; we’re hoping for some great deals on the Echo Flex and the Echo Dot with Clock, two of our favorite smart speakers.
Past Prime Day Echo Deals
Last year, the Echo Dot was the most popular item on Prime Day,1 our personal favorite sales event. Let’s see what other savings we saw on these Echo Amazon devices.
Recap: Amazon Prime Day 2020 Deals on Echo

Recap: Prime Day 2019 Echo Deals
Not surprisingly, the best deals we saw in previous Prime Day events were on Amazon’s own products and services in 2019. While pricing options have changed dramatically, you can see that the savings have only grown.
|Products||Regular Price||Prime Day 2019 Price or Promotion|
|Echo Dot (3rd Gen)||$49.99||$22.00-$25.00|
|Echo (2nd Gen)||$99.99||$50.00|
|Echo Show 5||$99.99||$49.99|
|AmazonBasics Microwave||$59.99||Free Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) for every purchase|
|Echo Show (2nd Gen)||$159.99||Free Amazon Echo Dot and Philips Hue Bulb for every purchase|
|Echo (2nd Gen) + Amazon Smart Plug||$94.98 ($49.99 + $44.99)||$54.98|
If 2019’s deals are any indication of what will be on sale this year, we suggest keeping an eye on discounts on older Echo devices, bundles, and smart displays again this year. And, if you’re new to smart displays, we recommend reading our Echo Show 8 review next. We have a feeling that smart displays will be one of the highlights of Prime Day 2021.
Watch out for deals on Alexa-enabled wearables and the latest generation of Echo smart speakers as well, as Amazon will likely use Prime Day to promote the future of Alexa.
FYI: The Echo Flex is currently the cheapest Echo device out there. Read our Echo Flex review to learn more about it.
