Amazon’s most popular speaker has gotten consistently good updates over the past few years, and right now, the online retailer has the third-generation Echo Dot discounted to just $0.99. That’s $39 off the regular price of $39.99 and the cheapest price we’ve seen for the Echo Dot all year.
This fabric-lined compact smart speaker can be used as your alarm clock, or you can pair it with your phone to play music, which delivers surprisingly loud, vibrant sound.
The Echo Dot is equipped with Amazon Alexa; use your voice to ask Alexa to set an alarm, check the weather, read the news or check on your daily appointments. You can also pair the Echo Dot with your smart home devices and use it as a smart hub to adjust thermostats, lock doors and turn off lights all with your voice. This is one of Amazon’s most popular devices online, with close to 900,000 reviews.
For a limited time, this deal gets you an Echo Dot (Third-Gen) for $0.99 with the purchase of a one-month Amazon Music Unlimited paid subscription (after one month, your subscription will auto-renew for $9.99 or $7.99 for Prime subscribers). An Amazon Music subscription lets you play any song on-demand and ad-free, from The Weeknd’s Dawn FM to Neil Young’s entire catalog. Keep listening with unlimited skips and listen to all your favorite music offline. Bear in mind that this promo is only eligible for first-time Amazon Echo device owners and Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers.
At this price, it’s worth picking up a second Echo Dot to pair together for a rich, surround sound-style experience. Amazon also has the regular Echo Dot on sale for just $29.99 (a 25% discount).
Note: Amazon has said that this deal is only while supplies last. Make sure to take advantage of the deal before it’s over. See full details on the Echo Dot sale here.
