One thing that continually impresses us about Amazon is that it doesn't have to be a holiday or Prime Day to save big on some of the most popular products offered on the site. On any given day, you can score pretty noteworthy deals. Case in point: Right now you can knock $100 off the Amazon Echo Show's price tag ($129.99, originally $229.99; amazon.com).

This device has Alexa integration (similar to the Amazon Echo), so you can ask the device to set timers for you, answer your most pressing questions, control your smart home devices like lightbulbs and thermostats, and play your favorite music from Spotify or Amazon Music — and this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Alexa's capabilities. It also features stellar audio quality and can connect with other Alexa devices to create a connected speaker system around your home. But unlike the Echo Plus or Echo Dot, Amazon's Echo Show gives users an extra layer of video content.

With it, you can watch footage from your security camera, stream video programs from Amazon Video, watch over your newborn by connecting the device to a baby monitor, see lyrics on screen with Amazon music, or even make video calls to your friends and family. These features make the device perfect for those who want all the perks of having an Amazon Alexa device in their home, but with a video setup instead of just a speaker.

Since its inception, the device has won over thousands of Amazon customers. Nearly 10,000 owners of the Echo Show have rated it an impressive 5 stars.

And while typically the device is among the most expensive Amazon Echo devices, right now the Echo Show's price tag has been reduced by 100 bucks. That's almost half off its original price.

It's the kind of deal that makes every day, even a random weekday in September, feel like Black Friday.
