Amazon is currently selling the Ultimate Ears BLAST Portable WiFi/Bluetooth Speaker with Amazon Alexa for just $89.99. This is normally priced around $150, so it makes this a really great deal, especially if you're looking for a portable speaker that has Amazon Alexa built-in. As this is one of the only ways to get Alexa in a portable speaker.
The Ultimate Ears BLAST has everything that everyone loves from the BOOM speaker, but it now has WiFi and Alexa. With WiFi built-in, Ultimate Ears is able to push software updates to the speaker and improve things, like Alexa, sound quality and much more, and since it's always connected, the user will never know it's updating. Which is definitely nice. Now with Alexa included, you have hands-free Alexa here which allows you to ask Alexa to play your favorite music on this speaker of course. But Alexa can also turn on or off the lights in your home from the BLAST. Now when it comes to audio quality, this is still a 360-degree speaker with great sounding audio that will fill a room quite nicely. This is also waterproof, and despite it always listening, it still gets some pretty decent battery life. We're looking at around 12 hours of continuous playback, which for an always-listening speaker, that's pretty incredible.
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.
