The Amazon Echo Dot is currently selling as a certified refurbished model over on Amazon for just $34.99. That is $15 off of its regular price and about $5 off of its regular refurbished price. This makes it a great time and a great way to bring Alexa everywhere in your home.
Amazon's Echo Dot is best known for being a somewhat small speaker with Alexa built-in. The Echo Dot is a speaker, although it's not very powerful, however Amazon does allow you to connect an external speaker to it either wired or over Bluetooth. The main selling point on the Echo Dot is Alexa, which has thousands of skills right now, with plenty more coming every single day. With Alexa you can find out what's happening in the world with news briefs, you can also order food using GrubHub, Domino's or Pizza Hut, Ford also has an Alexa skill for unlocking and starting your car. Of course, Alexa can also control your smart home, so you can turn your lights on and off using your voice and such.
