Amazon has just dropped the Certified Refurbished Echo Dot (2nd Gen) to $17.99. This is the new lowest price that the Echo Dot has ever been. The new Echo Dot 2 is on sale for $19.99 right now, but if that still isn’t a good enough price, this sale will save you another $2. More often than not, it seems like refurbished Amazon devices are just returns that were opened but never actually used. If you’re planning to listen to music through the built-in speaker of the Echo Dot, it’s well worth paying the extra $12 for the 3rd Gen Echo Dot at $29.99 because the new Echo Dot has a significantly better and louder internal speaker than the older model. If you just need an Alexa device to tuck in a corner for smart home controls and non-music interaction, you’re not going to beat this price.
