Amazon Echo on sale for $129.99 — Lowest Price Ever, Today Only

Amazon is having a one day only sale for the Amazon Echo for $129.99. At $50 off the regular price, this matches the lowest price the Echo has ever been, which happened only once before on Prime Day last year. Since this is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for the Echo, it qualifies as a “Great” price on my Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide scale of Okay/Good/Great. If you’ve been holding out on buying the Echo, or have been thinking of getting one for a family member or friend, now is the time to act because this sale ends at midnight tonight.

Sideclick Remote for Fire TV and Fire TV Stick is on sale for $24.99

For those of you who missed the Best Buy deal last week, or those who prefer to buy from Amazon, the Sideclick remote is currently on sale for $24.99 on Amazon. That’s $5 off the regular price of $29.99 and the second lowest price this remote has been. I’ve been a big fan of the Sideclick, ever since their successful Kickstarter campaign, and you can read my review of the Sideclick if you’d like. The Sideclick remote essentially is a strip of programmable buttons that attach to the side of a Fire TV or Fire TV Stick remote to turn it into a universal remote. Attachments for all Fire TV remote versions are included in the box.

Amazon Dash Wand now has Alexa and is free for Amazon Prime members

The Amazon Dash Wand is a small handheld device that lets you add items to your Amazon shopping list by scanning bar codes or dictating the item. The new version was released late last year and was mostly the same as the Dash Wand it replaced, but a little sleeker. Now Amazon has made the device a whole lot more useful by adding full Alexa capabilities. Just like with an Echo Dot, you can now speak to Alexa and hear responses directly through the Dash Wand.

The Dash Wand is only $20, making it the least expensive Alexa device Amazon sells, but it gets better because Amazon is essentially giving them away. If you’re a Prime member and order the Dash Wand for $20, you’ll automatically receive a $20 credit added to your Amazon account as soon as you register the device. See the promotion details here.

Amazon’s regular Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Voyage are on sale

In addition to putting most of their Alexa devices on sale for Father’s Day, Amazon has also put most of their Kindle models on sale. The regular Kindle is down from $79.99 to $59.99, which is a “Good” price on my Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide scale of “Okay/Good/Great” because you can probably expect it to be $10 less during big sales like Prime Day and Black Friday. The Kids Edition version of the regular Kindle has also dropped by $20 to $79.99. The kids versions comes without sponsored ads and includes a free cover plus a 2-year worry-free guarantee. The Kindle Paperwhite is down from $119.99 to $99.99, which I also consider a “Good” price, based on past sales. Lastly, the Kindle Voyage is on sale for $179.99, which is just an “Okay” price in my book, since this is the oldest Kindle model Amazon sells and it has been available for much less in the past.

Amazon Echo Dot is on sale for $39.99

The Amazon Echo Dot has just gone on sale for $39.99 on Amazon. That’s $10 off its regular price of $49.99. This matches the lowest price the Echo Dot has ever been, which is why I consider it a “Great” price on my Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide scale of “Okay/Good/Great,” even though it has been this price several times in the past.

Amazon Tap is on sale for $99.99

The Amazon Tap is on sale for $99.99 on Amazon. That’s $30 less than its regular price of $129.99. This is an “Okay” price on my Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide scale because it usually drops to $89.99 when Amazon puts all their Alexa devices on sale, which they are doing now. It has also been available for $79.99 through Alexa-exclusive deals twice in the past.

Amazon Echo is on sale for $139.99

The Amazon Echo is on sale for $139.99 on Amazon. This is the first time since last year that the Echo has dropped $40 or more. You technically buy it for this price last month, but you had to buy two of them. This price is “Good” on my Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide scale of “Okay/Good/Great” because it matches the sale price from this past Black Friday, but is not as low as the lowest the Echo has ever been, which was $129.99 during Prime Day last year.

The Sideclick remote for all Fire TV models is on sale for $19.99 at Best Buy. This is the first time I’ve seen this great universal remote available for less than the $29.99 regular price. See my review of the Sideclick for everything you need to know about it, but essentially it’s a strip of programmable buttons that atatch to the Fire TV remote to turn it into a universal remote. I’m a big fan of the device and have been using mine ever since receiving it through its successful Kickstarter campaign. Everything you need to attach it to any of the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick remotes is included in the box, so there’s no need to worry if you’re buying the right one. The Sideclick remote is also available for Roku and Apple TV at the same $19.99 sale price.

Amazon Echo Dot + Harmony Hub package on sale for $89.99 — Today Only

Today only, you can purchase the Amazon Echo Dot with a Harmony Hub for $89.99 from Best Buy. First you need to click here and login to the “My Best Buy Member Offers” page. From that page, click the “Get Offer” button to save $10 on an Echo Dot. Next, add a Black Echo Dot or White Echo Dot to your shopping cart. Then, add the Harmony Hub to your shopping cart and begin checking out. During checkout, be sure to click the “Apply” button on the payment method page to save the additional $10 on the total. The Harmony Hub will automatically be discounted by $50 and the Echo Dot will be discounted by $10 when you click the apply button, for a total of $89.99. Not that this offer is for the Harmony Hub alone, without a remote. This will allow you to control your devices with Alexa or the free Harmony app on your phone, in addition to your regular remotes. If you don’t need the physical Harmony remote, this is the best deal I’ve seen for the hub alone, assuming you’re in the market for an Echo Dot.
