You can still snag a bunch of discounted Echo devices right now. Of note in this sale is the Echo Dot smart speaker with clock for $35, which is the lowest price we’ve seen this device hit, other than the occasional lightning deal. Normally priced at $60, this Echo Dot is slightly more useful than the regular model because it displays the time through its fabric coating. Other good deals include the $170 for an Echo Studio plus a Hue smart light bulb, $100 for an Echo Plus plus a Hue bulb and $17.49 for the Echo Flex.

The regular Kindle is still $25 off, bringing its price down to $65. While this is $5 shy of the lowest price we’ve seen the Kindle drop to, it remains a great deal — especially if Dad has been eyeing an e-reader. The more expensive Kindle Paperwhite is also on sale for for $100, but the regular Kindle is the better deal of the two. We gave the Kindle a score of 91 for its front-lit display, improved design and better screen contrast.

Engadget’s James Trew tested these out and found them to be a solid improvement to Eargo’s previous hearing aids. This sale knocks $450 off the Neo HiFi’s price and, while they remain expensive at $2,500, it’s not an usual price for a good hearing aid.
