It was just this May that Amazon had techies rejoicing over its newly revealed Echo Pop speaker (normally $40), which was included in a larger line of Echo devices. Not only is it small space-friendly (seriously, it's compact enough that you could stash it atop your summer reading list), but it's also unbelievably affordable. That's especially true now that there's an Echo pop sale happening ahead of Amazon Prime Day 2023, which has lowered the price of this must-have device to as low as $18.
Just to put that into perspective, that's more than 50 percent off, making it one of the best early Prime Day deals you can take advantage of before the main event kicks off for Prime members on July 11 (which you can read all about here).
This smart speaker packs a ton of function into its compact size. Of course, it's Alexa-compatible, so you can easily "Ask Alexa" to have it help you complete any task, from playing music and audiobooks to checking the weather and even re-ordering your most-used supplies.
Beyond that, it can be connected to your smart home devices to control your power and lighting. The device itself is available to purchase with a smart bulb for an additional $1 and it comes in four colors to match your decor.
