I literally just purchased 2 the other day because they were on sale for $154 each if you buy 2. Still got one in the box. Hmmm…That boy is going back to Best Buy!

They’re $129.99 now
I’m still waiting for Netflix and Prime Video on them. Until then not really overly excited. I did have a good laugh that they’re offering $10 off if you trade in an Echo or $5 for a Dot on the purchase of one.


You’ve been able to watch prime video on an echo show for quite a while now. You get voice search and voice controls of the display

I’m surprised they don’t have it listed in the description or compatibility. It still says only Amazon music.

First bullet point in the description:

Echo Show brings you everything you love about Alexa, and now she can show you things. Watch video flash briefings, Amazon Video content, see music lyrics, security cameras, photos, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, browse and listen to Audible audiobooks, and more. All hands-free—just ask.



So buy an orange and a bottle of water at Whole Foods and get $10 Amazon GC. What a great deal.


Amazon has brought some of the prices at Whole Foods down since the acquisition. They also offer some prime member only deals in store. And if you have the prime visa card, you get another 5% off.

we shop at both a lot anyway. So the deal is good for us. :sunglasses:

We’ve hit a few of the Prime Whole Foods deals. I’m still waiting for the one Whole Foods store in my immediate area to be added to the Amazon Truck deal list of stops. I’m not driving 50 miles to meet up with Amazon deal truck.


Boy, I sure hope so! I like Whole Foods, but we usually shop elsewhere (Trader Joe, for example) for similar merchandise at lower pricing.

That being said, the appearance of Amazon lockers is a nice plus :sunglasses:
