Echo Line and Fire TV Stick are cheaper

Amazon released this Friday (5) a new offer for most products in the Echo line, which has speakers, headphones and smart displays with the virtual assistant Alexa, and for Fire TV Sticks – a kind of flash drive that you plug into your TV’s HDMI input and have access to applications from various streaming services.

The biggest discounts on prices are for Echo Shows 10 and 15 (smart screens), which had a reduction of R$200 (from R$1,899 to R$1,699). The biggest percentage discount is the 37% off Fire TV Stick Lite — the most basic item in the line.

The promotion runs until August 15th, so it’s an interesting gift option for Father’s Day (8/14). Can you imagine your old man saying good morning to Alexa or asking her if it’s going to rain?

Devices such as Echo Dots (smart speakers) and Echo Shows are called “smart” because they can be voice activated to execute a series of commands and connect with other equipment in the house via bluetooth or wi-fi.

For example, you can say, “Alexa, turn on the light,” and the light bulbs in your house will light up. You can also ask the virtual assistant for the weather forecast, the main news of the day and she will tell you everything.

See below the discounted Echo and Fire Stick line items and their respective values ​​in the offer.
