The Certified Refurbished 1st-gen Amazon Echo has just gone on sale for $69.99. While it has a laughable list price of $164.99, it normally sells for either $89.99 or $79.99. This newly discounted price is $5 more than the lowest it has ever been, which occurred during a Prime-only lightning deal back in May. Apart from not having an auxiliary audio out jack, the 1st-gen Echo has all the same functionality as the newer 2nd-gen Echo. The two perform and sound very similar. I personally find the 1st-gen Echo to have a slightly crisper sound, probably due to its larger tweeter, which makes it my preferred device for podcasts and news briefs, while the 2nd-gen has a slightly richer sound, which makes it a bit better for music. Overall, you really wouldn’t notice a difference between the two unless you heard them side-by-side. If you missed out on the Prime Day sales or just prefer the aesthetics and volume wheel of the original Echo, here’s your chance to get one at a great price.
Amazon tends to trickle out discounts on their certified refurbished devices during the days that lead up to Prime Day and this year is no exception. Several refurbished Amazon devices have just received heavy discounts that are exclusive to Prime members. These prices are almost certainly as low as you’re going to see for these devices, so don’t expect the new versions to be this low when Prime Day arrives. The refurbished Fire HD 8 tablet has dropped to $39.99. This is the new lowest price that this tablet has ever been. The lowest a new Fire HD 8 has ever been is $49.99, so that’s a pretty likely price to expect to see come Monday. The refurbished larger Fire HD 10 tablet is available for $89.99. The lowest price its new version has been is $99.99, which is a price we may see again during Prime Day. These are refurbished version of the latest models, so they both can replicate Echo Shows thanks to the new Show Mode that was just announced. They are also compatible with the new Show Mode Dock. If you prefer the dedicated device, the refurbished Echo Show is now just $109.99. For comparison, the new Echo Show is already on sale for Prime Day at $129.99. Lastly, the refurbished Kindle Paperwhite is on sale for $69.99. The lowest price a new Paperwhite has ever been is $89.99, which is probably as low as you should expect it to be for Prime Day.
Amazon has put all of their certified refurbished Echo devices on sale. The refurbished Echo Dot is on sale for $34.99. That’s $10 off the regular refurbished price and $15 off the non-refurbished price. The refurbished Echo is on sale for $74.99. That’s $10 off the regular refurbished price and $25 off the non-refurbished price. The refurbished Echo Plus is on sale for $109.99. That’s $20 off the regular refurbished price and $40 off the non-refurbished price. The refurbished Echo Show is on sale for $189.99. That’s $20 off the regular refurbished price and $40 off the non-refurbished price. The refurbished Amazon Tap is on sale for $69.99. That’s $40 off the regular refurbished price and $60 off the non-refurbished price. These sale prices end on May 7th.
The Refurbished 1st Gen Amazon Echo is on sale for $69.99. This matches the price it was during Black Friday and is the lowest price it has ever been. While Amazon lists the regular price as $164.99, it has actually been $89.99 for a couple of months, so that’s the more realistic list price. If you prefer the look or the sound of the original Echo, this is probably one of your last chances to buy it at a discount. I personally think it’s a coin flip between this Echo and the new one when it comes to which one sounds better. I think the new Echo has slightly better sounding lowes, noticeable with bass heavy music, while the original Echo has slightly better sounding highs, noticeable with podcasts/news and music vocals.
The 1st generation Certified Refurbished Amazon Echo has just dropped down to $69.99. This is the first time it has ever been priced this low.

Amazon dropped the price of the refurbished Amazon Echo to $79.99 last week. That sale is still active, but it’s not much of a deal since QVC is still selling new Amazon Echos for as low as $77.56. This week a couple more refurbished Alexa devices have dropped in price, which are a much better deal than the Echo’s price. The refurbished Echo Dot is down to $37.99 and the refurbished Amazon Tap is down to $79.99. While the price for the Tap is a decent price, the better deal is the Echo Dot. It’s not as low as the lowest price we’ve seen for an Echo Dot, which was $34.99 this past Prime Day, but it’s the second lowest price. If you don’t want to wait until Black Friday in November, when the Echo Dot might be a little less than this again, here’s your chance to save quite a bit.
Part of today’s Prime Day Countdown Deals include the Certified Refurbished Amazon Echo for $89.99. The regular price may be listed as $164.99, but the refurbished Echo regularly sells for $134.99, so this sale is a savings of $45 over that price. Both the black and white versions are available for this price, which is expected to last today only. This deal is for Prime members only.
Woot currently has the refurbished 1st-gen Fire TV and the refurbished Amazon Tap on sale. The refurbished Fire TV 1 is $52.99, which is $3 more than the lowest price I’ve ever seen for it. If you’re looking for something a bit more powerful than the Fire TV Stick but don’t want to spend the money for the Fire TV 2, the Fire TV 1 is still a very capable device. Plus, it’s the only model that has an optical audio port, which many can’t live without. The refurbished Amazon Tap is $79.99, which is not that enticing of a price, considering the brand new Tap was on sale for just $10 more just a few days ago.
Amazon has just lowered the price of all of their available certified refurbished Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks. The refurbished 2nd-gen Fire TV 2 (latest 2015 model with 4K support) is now $64.99. The old price was $79.99. The refurbished 1st-gen Fire TV (2014 model with 1080p support) is now $49.99. The old price was $69.99. Lastly, the refurbished 1st-gen Fire TV Stick (2015 model without a voice remote) is now $24.99. The old price was $29.99. All three prices are new all-time low prices that we’ve never seen before. If you’re interested in any of these devices, be sure to order soon because refurbished units tend to sell out fast, due to limited supply, after a price drop like this.
In addition to lowering the retail price of the Fire TV 2, Amazon has also reduced the price of their referbished devices. The Certified Refurbished Fire TV 2 is now just $79.99. This was sold for $94.99 for the longest time and was dropped to $89.99 about a month ago. Amazon is also still selling the Certified Refurbished Fire TV 1, which also received a $10 price drop, and is now $69.99.
