If you haven’t shopped Amazon’s Prime Day sale yet, you still have time to snag some stellar deals before the sale ends tonight at midnight PDT. Some of the biggest discounts we’ve seen have been on Amazon’s own devices, like the best-selling Echo Dot. The smart speaker is down to just $22 for Prime Day. That’s a 50% discount and the lowest price we’ve ever seen for the smart speaker. You won’t see a price cut like this till Black Friday, so we’d recommend taking advantage now before it’s too late.
Sign up for Prime Day
You’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of Prime Day deals. You can sign up for a free trial, which will see you through Prime Day and which you can cancel after 30 days.
The Echo Dot works with Amazon Alexa to answer questions, make calls, check the weather, and more using just your voice. You can play your favorite tunes from services like Spotify and Amazon Music or listen to audiobooks from Audible. The compact smart speaker can also control other smart home devices to turn on lights, lock doors, adjust the temperature, and more completely hands-free. The standard Dot model is available in Charcoal, Heather Gray or Sandstone so you can match the smart speaker to your home decor.
Like we mentioned above, this is the lowest price we’ve seen for the newest Echo Dot and a perfect opportunity to build your smart home. This discount is exclusively for Prime Members and ends tonight at midnight PDT.
