There are two constants in the universe:

1. Change.

2. Amazon devices going on sale with precision regularity.

Regarding that second one, look no further than the newly updated Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 that were announced yesterday. A day later, there’s already a discount — though it does require a little bundling.

Specifically, you can preorder the second-generation Echo Show 5 and a Blink Mini camera for $95, a total savings of $25. 

Similarly, you can preorder the second-generation Echo Show 8 and a Blink Mini camera for $140 — also a $25 savings.

The new Echos are notable for minor screen and camera improvements. The Echo Show 5 added a new color option (blue), while the Echo Show 8 brings stereo speakers to the mix.

As for the Blink Mini, it’s a solid home-security camera that’s a good match for Amazon’s displays.

Here’s the thing, though: The current-generation Echo Show 5 is on sale right now for just $50, while the Echo Show 8 is marked down to $110 (though it’s been as low as $65).

The newer models will absolutely see similar discounts after they start shipping in early June (and then again every few weeks or so, as has been the case with all other Amazon devices). Plus, Father’s Day and Prime Day are coming (again: June), so anything and everything will be on sale.

If you’re in a bird-in-the-hand mindset and don’t wait to wait, these deals are decent. But if you’re not in a rush, better ones are coming.
