Amazon's Echo Dot Is Ridiculously Cheap, Comes With A Great Bonus

Amazon is practically giving away the Echo Dot.


Amazon will release the new Echo Dot with built-in LED display on November 4, just in time for Black Friday 2019. But if you're hankering for a smart speaker and don't need it to display time, we have quite the ridiculous deal for you. To seemingly clear out remaining stock, the 2018 Echo Dot is going for a measly buck at Amazon.

There's a slight catch. You also have to pay for one month of Amazon Music upfront, bringing your grand total to $8.98. That's an overall savings of $49. Not bad at all. Keep in mind that the Amazon Music subscription will automatically renew after the first month. So if you don't want Amazon Music, make sure to cancel the subscription during the first month.

The Echo Dot is a smart speaker that can play your music from Spotify, Apple Music, and Sirius XM via voice commands. It's Alexa-enabled, so it can also function has a helper, whether you want to check the weather, sync it up with other smart home devices, or simply need to know which movies you've seen that actor in before.

The speaker itself, which you can get in Charcoal or Heather Gray, is surprisingly nice for the size. But if you want a more robust sound, you can also use your bluetooth-enabled home speakers or connect a speaker to the 3.5mm audio jack.
