    Boy, do I have great news for you — Amazon is currently running some pretty amazing discounts on Echo devices, Fire tablets, and Fire TV devices. So grab your credit card and your umbrella because it’s raining deals! (And possibly also raining literally — but what better time to online shop?!)

    The deals run from now until any time between 8/25 to 9/3, depending on which device.

    Here's what you can get on sale right now:

    1. $15 off an Echo that'll allow you to play music, make calls, set alarms and timers, ask questions, and control smart home devices via voice command — just ask Alexa.

    This deal lasts until 9/3 at 9 p.m. PST.

    Echo can connect to apps like Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, NPR, and more. With multi-room music, you can play music on compatible Echo devices in different rooms. It can also play Audible audiobooks, radio stations, news briefs, etc. The speaker has Dolby processing for crisp vocals and dynamic bass response. It can fill the room with 360° omnidirectional audio. You can even adjust the treble, mid, and bass levels with your voice. With seven microphones, beamforming technology, and noise cancellation, it can hear you from any direction even while music is playing.

    Promising review: "I am in love! This is the first item I purchased for setting up new home automation. I had read all sorts of reviews on the things I could do with Alexa but had no clue as to the endless things possible. First, setup was a breeze, just make sure you have it on the same network as all other equipment or gadgets you plan to do. Follow all instructions and if there is a problem, Amazon has a great help site. It paired great with the Philips Hue bulbs, Echo Dot, and Harmony Hub. Setting up the Groups, Devices, and Scenes in the Echo took a little while and then setting up Routines on my iPhone, a bit longer. Only your imagination can hold you back on the endless possibilities for this! So far, I have lights, TV, satellite, DVR, my receiver, and even Netflix set up with much more to come. A simple 'Alexa, good morning' command can get your TV and lights up along with the news of the day and weather report right at your voice. Like I said, only your imagination and a few tech skills are the limits of this." —Brian Reid

    Price: $84.99 (originally $99.99; available in five colors; or buy two and save $60)

    2. $10 off an Echo Dot — it can do pretty much everything an Echo can but is more compact and wallet-friendly.

    This deal lasts until 8/27 at 9 a.m. PST.

    The major difference between the Echo and Echo Dot is that the Echo has a more powerful speaker.

    Promising review: "I LOVE my Dots! I am disabled to where I am not able to walk. Therefore, being able to speak commands is necessary. I have three of them throughout the house and use the 'drop-in' feature as an intercom since I can't go downstairs to call my parents. When I'm in bed, it's particularly helpful because I've added the Insteon modules to control my fan (off and on) and my lamp by just telling Alexa to do what I need. Lastly, I enjoy listening to music while I'm laying in bed. I don't have it hooked up to external speakers, but you can do that if you'd prefer a better sound quality." —Refrain Jenny

    Price: $39.99 (originally $49.99; available in two colors; or buy three and save $75 total with code DOT3PACK)

    3. $10 off the Echo Dot Kids Edition designed to keep children entertained and give parents peace of mind.

    This deal lasts until 8/27 at 9 a.m. PST.

    It can play music, answer questions, read stories, and even tell jokes. Parents can set daily time limits, review activity, or pause Alexa on the device via the Amazon Parent Dashboard. It automatically filters explicit songs from Amazon Music or Spotify. The device comes with one year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, a kid-friendly case, plus a two-year worry-free guarantee (meaning Amazon will replace it if it gets broken). The FreeTime Unlimited gives children access to ad-free radio stations and playlists, over 300 Audible books for kids, and games and skills from Disney, National Geographic, Nickelodeon, and more. Like the regular Echo Dot, kids can use it to control lights, plugs, switches, and more with compatible connected devices.

    Promising review: "My kids freaking love these things. I have had an Echo Dot for myself for some time now. Decided to get these when my kids started to set timers for reading, ask questions about stuff they are learning in school, etc. They absolutely love the fact that she tells them stories, too. This is a great way to get the kids up to speed on how to use today's technology while also enabling them to learn at their own pace." —Michael Youngblood

    Price: $69.99 (originally $79.99; available in three colors)

    4. $40 off the Echo Plus with a built-in ZigBee smart home hub — you don't need to purchase a separate hub to integrate smart lightbulbs, locks, plugs, and in-wall switches.

    This deal lasts until 9/3 at 9 p.m. PST.

    Promising review: "I love how Echo has grown. I own three Echos, one Echo Plus, and an Echo Tap. Amazon has done an amazing job growing these devices and improving the functionality. I purchased the Echo Plus because I wanted to get rid of my WINK hub. Unfortunately, there are still a few brands of plugs that don’t work with the Echo Plus unless you have a WINK hub, but all of my lights do and it’s amazing. The ability to set up Routines is great. For instance, I say 'Alexa, it’s bedtime,' and all of the lights adjust to exactly as I want the house configured for bed. It even turns on my bedroom light and fan. In the morning when I leave for work, I say 'Alexa, have a good day,' and all of the lights go off in the house until sunset, then it all starts again. I even have a bulb in my chicken coop that I can turn on and off from the inside the house, just by asking Alexa to do it. I would definitely recommend Echo Plus." —Kevin M.

    Price: $99.99 (originally $149.99; available in two colors; option to get a free Philips Hue Bulb)

    5. $100 off the Echo Show so you can not only hear but also see the weather report, your to-do/shopping list, recipes, and lyrics. Plus, you can video chat with family members, monitor security cameras, and watch news clips.

    This deal lasts until 9/3 at 9 p.m. PST.

    The Drop-In feature (all Echo devices have this) lets you connect instantly with other compatible Echo devices in your home (or others who also have Echo devices). For example, you can drop in to ask what time dinner will be ready, see the baby's nursery, or check in with a relative. You can also use Echo Show to broadcast a quick, one-way message to all other Echo devices in your home via Alexa Announcements.

    Promising review: "I love my Alexa Show, I actually bought three of them. One for my mom, one for my grandmother, and one for me. They all live far from me, and this is such a great way to connect! I drop in on my grandmother because she gets a little confused at how to answer a phone, and it works so perfectly! You have to set up the device for drop-in and indicate your contacts who have permission to do this, so my mom and I have our devices turned off for that feature so no one can drop into us. But it is priceless for my grandmother — it is gray at first, and I always make sure to say something like 'Grandma, are you there? I'm just calling to say hi,' and then she has some time before the screen clears up. We'll have a great video conversation, and I feel so much more connected to her after seeing her on the screen! My Alexa Show tells me when she is active, so it really makes it so easy. My mom and I watch TV together, or I use it as video chat for her to see the grandkids. I like how it is a standalone device that just sits there on the table, and I can talk and see her while doing other things." —Christina

    Price: $129.99 (originally $229.99; available in two colors)

    6. Up to $40 off the Fire Tablet Kids Edition for providing your kiddos with plenty of fun and educational books, apps, and shows.

    Get $40 off the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition, $30 off the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition, and $20 off the Fire 7 Kids Edition. These deals last until 8/25 at 9 p.m. PST.

    Similar to the Echo Dot Kids Edition, all the Fire Tablets Kids Editions come with one year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, a kid-friendly case, plus a two-year worry-free guarantee.

    Promising review (Fire HD 10 Kids Edition): "This thing is amazing! It is definitely big but so light and well-made. Great for movies and apps. My two-year-old can even navigate it well. My five-year-old loves it, so does mom! Fast and so many great books, apps, and shows! Not cheesy ones, the ones you would pay for. Very fast and I put only what I want on the boys' profiles. Actually just bought a second one yesterday!" —lindseymae

    Price: $79.99 for Fire 7 Kids (orginally $99.99; available in three colors); $99.99 for Fire HD 8 Kids (orginally $129.99; available in three colors); and $159.99 for Fire HD 10 Kids (originally $199.99; available in three colors)

    7. $30 off the Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD to watch movies and shows via all the popular streaming apps (including Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO, NBC, etc.) from your big-screen TV. No cable required.

    This deal lasts until 8/25 at 9 p.m. PST.

    You can also connect it with an Echo device and use Alexa to find and control content, play music, check movie showtimes, order a pizza — hands-free.

    Promising review: "For anyone looking for an alternative to cable TV or the other high-priced options, Fire TV is a great choice. With Prime, you have an amazing choice of movies, shows, and games. There are no monthly charges unless you add them! I got my first Fire TV last August and could not be happier. Now I buy them for birthday gifts so family members can check it out before they cut the cable. To be honest, I have added Netflix for $8 and Hulu for $12 a month. I don't know if I added them to have a little extra choice, or the joy I get when I pay the $20 every month and remember what the old Direct TV monthly bill use to be!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $39.99 (originally $69.99)

    8. $30 off the Fire TV Cube — a bigger and badder version of the regular Fire TV with a built-in speaker that'll process voice commands without the help of an Echo device.

    This deal lasts until 8/25 at 9 p.m. PST.

    It is also the only Fire TV product that comes with an ethernet adapter.

    Promising review: "Being able to control my Samsung 55" TV, scroll through my TV's functions with my voice, switch channels, play and find movies without having to open the parent app (can you say Netflix and Prime Video), and being able to play my Prime Music by voice selection, order food and products from Amazon and my favorite local restaurants, create a shopping list that reminds me when I am in the store (how cool is that?)... to name just a few functions. This was completely amazing and once again puts this marriage of the Echo and Fire TV years ahead of its... well, let's face it there is no competition. Once Amazon gives the Cube the ability to make and receive phone calls through the owner's phone contacts and multi-room play for music and phone — currently only for the Echo Plus — Amazon Fire TV Cube will be the master. Get one of these, you will not be disappointed!" —Paul T. Blades

    Price: $89.99 (originally $119.99)
