Everyone’s priority right now should be staying inside at home as much as possible, social distancing when you do have to leave your home, and being extra conscious about not touching your face and washing your hands all the time. The novel coronavirus outbreak is the most serious pandemic we have faced in our lifetimes, and “help” in the form of a vaccine isn’t coming anytime soon. It’s our responsibility to slow the COVID-19 disease’s spread so that our hospitals don’t get overwhelmed and they can help people who need help. You might think you’re in perfect health and it won’t be a big deal if you get sick. You might even be correct since 80% of COVID-19 cases are mild. But you could still be asymptomatic for up to two weeks and who knows how many people you might infect over that period of time if you’re not self-quarantined. Stay. Home.
With all that in mind, dealing with some delays on products that we order from Amazon doesn’t really seem like such a big deal at all. The company announced last week that it would stop shipping most nonessential products until late April so it can focus on things like medical supplies. That said, there are still a few solid deals available that are shipping out right away, and we’re going to tell you about three of them right now.
The first two are both bundles, and they stand to save you up to $90 when you buy a popular Ring Video Doorbell Pro and bundle it with either an Echo Show 5 or the larger Echo Show 8. The Ring Video Doorbell Pro and Echo Show 5 bundle typically sells for $339, but you’ll be able to pick one up for just $259 right now, which basically means you’re getting an Echo Show 5 for $10. If you’d rather have an 8-inch display instead of the compact 5-inch model, the $379 Ring Video Doorbell Pro and Echo Show 8 bundle is on sale for $289.
Finally, there’s a great deal available if you want the top-of-the-line Amazon smart display and you don’t need a Ring Doorbell to go along with it. The 2nd-Generation Echo Show has a much better design than the original and it’s got a nice big 10.1-inch screen with HD resolution. You normally have to pay $230 to get your hands on one, but you can pick this hot smart display up right now for just $199.99.
