The Amazon Tap has just gone on sale for $84.99. Despite the list price being $129.99, the Tap has actually been available for $99.99 for nearly 3 months now, so this new sale price is more of a $15 discount than a $45 discount, as the product page would like you to believe. The lowest price the Tap has ever been is $79.99, so this new sale price is just $5 shy of matching the lowest price ever. If you’re considering the Amazon Tap, it’s important to know that it’s not really a 1st-party citizen in Amazon’s Alexa universe. That’s because there are several Alexa features available on Echo devices that are not available on the Tap, such as calling and messaging through Alexa. The Tap is the oldest Alexa device that Amazon still sells new, so it seems like Amazon is fine letting 3rd-party manufacturers take over the portable Alexa speaker market. That said, the Tap is still a great product, as long as you’re not expecting it to do everything an Echo can do. Note that you can add a Sling Cover to your Amazon Tap order for just $5, which is a savings of $15.
