We love the Echo Show 8. In fact, in our review for the device we called it the “the best Amazon smart display, period”.
This an incredible price for a very cool device. Jump on it.
A nice little combo deal that will save you $49. Hard to argue with that.
Kindle Unlimited is sorta like the Netflix of books. If you’re a big reader it’s fantastic deal. On this deal, it’s free for three months, then it’ll cost you $13.99 per month. Worth a try for sure.
If reading’s not your thing, why not try Audible instead. I’ve long thought about getting into audio books, especially now that podcasts are such a huge thing. This is a great chance to trial Audible out for 3 months.
