Get £25 off the Amazon Echo right now in the UK!

If you’ve got a hankering for an Amazon Echo but you were waiting for a deal, now would be the time to bite. For a “limited time” Amazon UK has taken £25 off the price of the big Echo, bringing it down to £124.99. It’s valid on both colors and is a decent chunk off the usual £150 asking price.

Five reasons why I pre-ordered the Amazon Echo Show

There’s a full-sized Echo in my living room, an Echo Dot in my bedroom, and the Alexa-enabled Triby sits on my fridge in the kitchen. I don’t use Alexa for anything particularly special, mostly just music/podcasts and smart light control and the occasional timer. There’s a lot more I could do with Alexa, but I often find the experience limiting without a display to accompany the sound. I currently have a tablet mounted…
