Amazon Echo Dot on sale for $39.99 each or 3 for $99.97 — Today only

Amazon has just put the Echo Dot on sale for $39.99. This matches the lowest price the Echo Dot has ever been on Amazon and it’s the first time this year that Amazon has dropped the price down from their regular price of $49.99. Best Buy has also matched the $39.99 price, but they’re also honoring the ongoing $20 discount on a 3 pack. So if you add 3 Echo Dots to your Best Buy cart, the price automatically drops to $99.97 (3 x $39.99 – $20) for the 3 pack. That makes them $33.33 each, which is the lowest I’ve ever seen for the Echo Dot. I’ve read that this sale is for today only, so act fast. Best Buy probably didn’t intend for the sale price and the 3 pack discount to stack, so they’ll likely sell out fast.


Looks like Best Buy fixed their mistake and is no longer stacking the extra $20 off when you buy 3.

Last day to buy Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Fire Tablets on sale — Update: Sale extended another week

Amazon has had several of their Alexa devices and Fire Tablets on sale this week. That sale is expected to end tonight at midnight. If you still haven’t placed your orders, this is probably your last chance to get these products at a discount before Christmas. The Amazon Echo is $139.99, the Echo Dot is $39.99, and the Amazon Tap is $89.99. Those prices match Amazon’s Black Friday sale prices and are pretty good overall. Be sure to check Prime Now if you need something that is backordered to arrive by Christmas.

The 7″ Fire Tablet is $39.99, the Fire Kids Edition Tablet is $89.99, and the Fire HD 10 Tablet is $199.99. Those deals are not as good as the Echo deals, but they’re still pretty decent, especially considering the Fire HD 10 never went on sale during Black Friday. Check my Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide to get a better feel of how these prices compare to past sales.


12/18/16 Amazon has extended the sale another week and has also added the Fire HD 8 for $69.99 to the sale.

Amazon is now selling an Echo Dot 3-pack for $129.97


Ever since the all-new Echo Dot 2 was first introduced a couple months ago, Amazon has offered the new device in a 6-pack (using promo code DOT6PACK) for $249.95, which is a savings of $49.99. If six of the little Alexa enriched pucks are too much for you, you can now buy a 3-pack for $129.97. Just add three to your cart and use promo code DOT3PACK at checkout to knock $20 off the total price.

Do note that we’re expecting Amazon to sell the new Echo Dot 2 for $39.99 each during Black Friday, which would be $10 cheaper for a 3-pack than with this new promo code. However, there is the risk of them selling out early on Black Friday, so if you don’t want to wait, or don’t care about the extra $10 savings, or don’t want to be up at midnight so you don’t miss out on the Black Friday price, you might be better off buying the 3-pack now.

Logitech Harmony Elite Remote and Echo Dot 2 bundle available for $60 off


Amazon has just made a new bundle available that groups together the Logitech Harmony Elite Remote and Echo Dot 2 for a total of $287.58. That is a savings of $60 versus buying the two items separately, so you’re essentially getting a free Echo Dot for buying the Harmony remote. The black Echo Dot bundle has already sold out, so only the white Echo Dot option is available. The Harmony Elite Remote included in this bundle is Logitech’s top of the line remote. It features a full color touchscreen and comes with the Logitech Home Hub. The hub connects to the Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick via Bluetooth, which lets you control your streaming device through the universal remote. With the release of an official Harmony Alexa Skill last week, thre trio of Harmony + Alexa + Fire TV has never worked better.

The fabric versions are $14.99 each and come in charcoal (gray), indigo (blue), and sandstone (off-white). The leather versions are $19.99 and come in merlot (burgundy), midnight (black), and saddle (tan).

Echo Dot 2 lighting kit deals from Lutron and Philips Hue


The Amazon Echo Dot 2 is continuing to turn up in more and more smart home bundle deals lately. Amazon is currently offering the Echo Dot 2, the Lutron Dimmer Switch Starter Kit w/ Hub & Remote, and a second Lutron Dimmer Switch w/ Remote for a bundled price of $159.89. That deal gives you a savings of nearly $30 off buying the 3 items individually on Amazon, and $50 off their retail price. The Lutron bundle allows you to convert two light switches in your home into voice and remote activated switches.

The Lutron kit is ideal for ceiling lighting, but if you use tabletop or floor lamps, then a kit from Philips Hue is probably more ideal for you. Best Buy is currently offering a Philips Hue Starter Kit and Echo Dot 2 bundle for $99.99, which saves you $20 off buying everything individually. The included Philips Hue Starter Kit comes with two LED bulbs and the Hue hub. You can then add additional Hue bulbs for about $15 each if you’d like. Both smart home lighting solutions above work with Alexa on the Fire TV as well.
