Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Plus, and Echo Show are all on sale

Nearly all of Amazon’s Echo lineup have gone on sale today. The best deal of the bunch is easily the Echo Show for $129.99. This matches the lowest price that the Echo Show has ever been and is the same price that it was during Prime Day, but this sale is open to non-Prime members. The regular Amazon Echo is on sale for $84.99, which is a mediocre sale price since it has been as low as $69.99 in the past. If you buy two Echos the savings get much more impressive because Amazon will take another $30 off the already reduced priced. At $139.98 for a pair of Echos, that brings the price for each down the lowest the Echo has ever been individual. The Echo Dot is on sale for $39.99, which is also a mediocre sale price. If you buy 3 Echo Dots and use the promo code DOT3PACK, you’ll get an extra $45 off, which brings the individual price of each to $24.99. That’s a fantastic deal since the lowest price the Echo Dot has ever been on its own is $29.99. Lastly, the Echo Plus is on sale for $99.99 with a free Philips Hue smart light bulb included. That price matches the lowest price the Echo plus has ever been.

Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet and Echo Dot bundle is on sale for $149.99

Amazon has once again dropped the price of their Fire HD 10 Tablet + Echo Dot Bundle to $149.99. That essentially means you’re getting a free Echo Dot with the purchase of a Fire HD 10, since the regular price of the tablet alone is $149.99. The tablet was $99.99 during Prime Day and the Echo Dot was $29.99, so the sale on this bundle is only $20 more than the lowest they have ever been. If you missed out on Prime Day or regretted not buying these devices while they were on sale, here is your chance to pick them up at a pretty decent price.

Amazon is giving a 6 month Amazon Music Unlimited subscription for Free with most Echo devices

Amazon is now bundling a free 6 month subscription of their music streaming service, Amazon Music Unlimited, with the purchase of most Echo devices. You have to be a new customer to Amazon Music Unlimited to receive the free subscription and it will automatically renew at $7.99 per month after the free 6 months are over if you do not cancel. To receive this deal, you must specifically purchase one of the following Echo device listings, which are listed at the same Prime Day sale price as their regular counterparts: Amazon Echo for $69.99, Echo Dot for $29.99, Echo Spot for $99.99, or Echo Show for $129.99. If you’ve already purchased the solo device today, there doesn’t seem to be a way to receive the free 6 month music subscription afterwards, so you’ll need to either chat with customer support or try to cancel your original order and re-purchase it using the above links.

Fire TV Stick + Echo Dot Bundle on sale for $44.98 — New Lowest Price Ever

The Amazon Fire TV Stick + Echo Dot bundle is on sale for $44.98 for Prime Day. This is the new lowest price that this bundle has ever been. With the Fire TV Stick on sale for $19.99 and the Echo Dot on sale for $29.99, buying the two together will save you an extra $5 over the already ridiculously low price, making this easily one of the best deals available for Prime Day. The two devices compliment each other very well because you can link them together through the Alexa app to give you hands-free control over the Fire TV Stick. It’s not quite as good as the hands-free control you get with the Fire TV Cube, but all the basics are available. You can use your voice to control playback, launch apps, start movies/shows, and much more. Most of Amazon’s devices are already on sale early for Prime Day.

Amazon Echo Dot on sale for $29.99 or get 2 for $49.98 — Lowest Price Ever

The Amazon Echo Dot is on sale for $29.99 for Prime Day. That price matches the lowest price that the Echo Dot has ever been and is $20 off the regular price of $49.99. For an even better deal, if you buy two Echo Dots at ounce, Amazon will take an additional $10 off for a total of $49.98 for the pair. At $24.99 each when you buy two, that’s the best price we’ve ever seen for the Echo Dot and is equivalent to a buy-one-get-one-free deal. If you want to upgrade to the full-sized Amazon Echo, those are also on sale for $69.99, which is a new all-time low price. You’ll also save $10 extra if you buy a pair of Echos at ounce, just like with the Echo Dot sale. Amazon is also offering an Echo Dot + TP-Link Smart Plug Mini bundle for $39.99. At just $10 more for the smart plug, it’s a great offer because that plug has never been less than $19.99 in the past. Most of Amazon’s devices are already on sale early for Prime Day. Read more ›

Amazon Echo Dot is on sale for $34.99, but you probably shouldn’t buy it

The Amazon Echo Dot has just gone on sale for $34.99. Normally, I’d say that this is a great price because this is the new lowest price that the Echo Dot has been all year, but with Prime Day starting on Monday, you’re probably better off waiting. It might seem like Amazon has started the Echo Dot’s Prime Day sale early with this $34.99 price, like they did with the Echo Show which is already on sale for its great Prime Day price of $129.99, but that’s very likely not the case. This $34.99 price for the Echo Dot is just Amazon matching Google’s sale price for the Google Home Mini that just went live. Amazon is determined to not let Google beat them on price, so they’ve been matching Google’s smart speaker prices anytime the Home or Home Mini go on sale. The Echo Dot was on sale for $29.99 during this past Black Friday, so that is very likely the price we’ll see it drop to for Prime Day as well. If you’re a Prime member and want to buy an Echo Dot, you should wait until next week to buy one. Note that if you buy the Echo Dot now and it drops further for Prime Day, Amazon will not credit you the difference. Howeverm if you’re not a Prime member and don’t want to sign-up for a free 30-day trial to get in on Prime Day’s sale prices, then this $34.99 is probably as low of a price as you’ll get until Black Friday comes back around in November.

Get a free Amazon Echo Dot when you buy a Fire HD 10 tablet

Amazon just dropped the price of the Fire HD 10 Tablet + Echo Dot bundle to $149.99. That’s the same price as you would pay for the tablet alone, so you’re essentially getting the $49.99 Echo Dot for free. Better yet, if you use an Amazon Prime Visa or an Amazon Prime Store Card you’ll receive an additional 10% cashback, thanks to a separate promotion that ends today. That brings the total price for the pair to $134.99. The Fire HD 10 tablet is Amazon’s newest and most powerful tablet. I’ve owned one since it was released and have been very happy with it. That’s thanks to the fact that it has plenty of power, since it has the same CPU and GPU as the Fire TV 2, a great 1080p screen, and you can install the Google Play Store on it in a matter of minutes without needing to root the tablet.
