I had pre-ordered the Echo show 8 for $99, which I though was a good deal considering, but I wanted to make sure they didn't add any incentives after it was released and found Amazon have now added a trade in program to go along with the $30 off originally added.

Trading in an old Echo gets you a $30 Amazon gift card and and additional 25% off the Echo show 8. Now the total shipped with tax is $55 instead of $115. ( find the button above the Add to Cart button that says "Upgrade and save with trade-in")

Eventually the original $30 off will expire so the Echo Show 8 will be $130 plus tax and environmental fees pushing the price close to $150. Now is the time to bite if you are even slightly interested.

Since the Show 8 was replacing my original Echo in the living room, I had no need for the old Echo. Trading it in was a no brainer for me.

It's really just an Echo Show 5 with an 8" screen and larger speakers. I'm very happy with my 5 but you should read the reviews of the 5 to decide for yourself.
It's more like a mix of the 5 and gen 2. It has close to the same speaker setup as the 2nd gen where its 2 x 2.0 speaker and the same 1280 x 800p resolution, but it has the same design as the 5.

I'm not getting the additional 25% off. Maybe that's because I'm trading in a Gen 1 Echo for $25. Or, maybe because I got 25% off on previous trade ins.

None of the Echos support YouTube. Google and Amazon continue to be in a p**sing contest.
If you use the show's built in browser to navigate to youtube, what happens? (genuinely curious, never tried this myself).

With the echo show 5 dropping to 49.99 on BF, I'm going to hold out. I'm hoping the echo show 8 will drop a few more dollars. It's been 99.99 for a week or so.

From the looks of it it has expanded capabilities. You can see it supports a wider range of apps compared to the Show 5. Just based off the promo page on Amazons website. You can see the Capital one app, Jeopardy app is supported. I imagine others are supported as well. To say its going to be open platform would be a very long stretch. But just based on the promo page, this system is capable of things the Show 5 is not.

You guys should've taken advantage when Best Buy was offering 20.00 per 3rd gen echo dot. Via trade in.
doesn't help you get a 25% discount off the 8 though..

They gave 25% coupon with the trade in at best buy. Which unlike amazon trade in at the time, it allowed you to use it on ALL echo devices. Like the Echo Studio.

I did this deal, coupon is good until 1/31 too. In store only and I'm waiting for a good price

OK, so the complaint is what? YouTube isn't in a native app or Alexa commands to open a topic or video in you tube don't work? Sorry, when I get home I can try this stuff myself, I just don't have a big need to go to YouTube on my show (5) ever.

Probably.. I've used it a couple of times. When you first use it.. it'll ask you what browser you want to use with it.

got a couple Show 5s when they were $25 with trade in. Gave one to daughter and the other still in the box. She NEVER uses it but uses her Echo every day.

Was really hoping there would be a sweet trade in option on the new Echo Studio. I'd gladly trade in my OG Echo on that Studio

Can't find this anywhere, but does the show 8 have an aux out?
