The Amazon Echo Dot is one of the cheapest ways to get Alexa, and now it's just gotten even cheaper. To round out its back to school sale, Amazon has dropped the price on the Echo Dot and a few other products. The Echo Dot is now just $44.99. This isn't the lowest it has ever been, but it is still a great price for it - and the lowest it's been since the holiday season last year.
Amazon's Echo Dot comes in at $44.99 which is a fantastic price for this small speaker with Alexa built in. The Echo Dot is able to do things like order you an Uber, order pizza from Dominos or Pizza Hut and even start your car (currently only some Ford models have this capability). Of course Alexa can do the usual things of answering your questions, giving you the weather and such. With the Echo Dot, the speaker inside is not that great, but you can connect it to another speaker over Bluetooth or using the included 3.5mm jack, which is a nice touch, to be honest.
