Today, Amazon has given the Echo Dot a very rare discount. Dropping the price from $49.99 to just $39.99, effectively taking 20% off of the regular price here. The Echo Dot hasn't dropped to this price since the holiday season last year. Which means it's a great time to pick up the Echo Dot and get a dose of Alexa in your life.
Now the Echo Dot isn't the most high-end speaker with Alexa inside, but it is the cheapest, and the easiest way to get Alexa into your home. The Echo Dot does basically everything that the larger Echo does, but the speaker doesn't have as good audio quality as the Echo. However, to combat that, Amazon has made it possible for you to add a Bluetooth speaker to the Echo Dot, or even use the 3.5mm headphone jack to connect it. So you can have much better audio from your Echo Dot. Now there is Alexa inside, which means you'll be able to ask it questions, but you can also use Alexa to control your home. Depending on what smart home products you have. It is compatible with most smart home products, including Philips Hue, LIFX, and so much more.
It's also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. If you are not a member of Amazon Prime, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial and take advantage of unlimited two-day shipping as well as the many other perks that Amazon Prime includes.
