Amazon has discounted a bundle that consists of the Echo Dot and the TP-Link Smart Plug, priced at just $50.98. That's a great price for this bundle, considering it is typically priced at $89.98, so you're saving a decent $39 on this price tag today. This is good today only, and you'll need to pick it up before midnight tonight.
The Amazon Echo Dot is a smaller Echo that does have Alexa built-in, the only difference really here is the speaker that's inside. It's not that great, but it does get the job done, which is important. With the Echo Dot, you can connect it to another speaker, like maybe the Bose SoundLink Revolve which has great audio quality, but it's not smart, connecting it to the Echo Dot does make it smart. There is Alexa available here, so you can use it to control your smart home, as well as a number of other things. Now with the TP-Link Smart Plug, you are able to make virtually anything in your home smart, including an older lamp, or maybe your TV or anything really. With this Smart Plug, you can control whatever is plugged in using the TP-Link app, which is available on both Android and iOS. Of course, it is compatible with Amazon Alexa (which is why this bundle is pretty impressive), but you can also use it with Google Assistant.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $119/year (or $59/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
