Eufy Genie Smart Speaker w/ Alexa on sale for $19.99 — New lowest price ever [Expired]

The Eufy Genie has just gon on sale for $19.99 for today only. This is the new lowest price that this smart speaker has ever been. You can read my review of the Eufy Genie, but it’s essentially an Amazon Echo Dot clone with nearly all of the same capabilities. My one and only major complaint of the Eufy Genie was that it did not have Echo Spacial Perception (ESP) but I have just discovered that it now does support ESP, so it works well with other Echo devices nearby. The only real issue with the Genie, compared to the Dot, is it doesn’t have access to some of the advanced Alexa features, like calling and messaging. Other than the lower cost, the main advantage of the Eufy Genie over the Echo Dot is that the Genie has a slightly better sounding speaker than the Dot. While I would still recommend the Echo Dot over the Eufy Genie for most people, it’s hard to resist at this price, especially if you’re fine with not having calling capabilities.
