Amazon’s most popular smart speaker is on sale now and we are snatching ours up fast!
Currently, the Echo Dot is 40 percent off, making the compact speaker just $29.99 (originally $49.99). If you’re new to the wonderful world of Amazon’s Echo, we’ll break it down for you.
While Amazon offers everything from smart speakers with a screen (a la the Echo Show 5) that give accompanying visuals to wall plugs that bring Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa, to any room, the Dot, however, remains to be one of Amazon’s top-selling Echo products.

Small enough to fit in your hands, this petite smart speaker packs a punch and can respond with info when you ask Alexa about everything from news headlines to weather forecasts. The Dot can also “call almost anyone and control compatible smart home devices with your voice” or stream your favorite playlists.
With tens of thousands of skills, Alexa is a great companion for setting timers, adjusting your thermostat or telling you funny jokes.
Ready to go with rich sound and impressive speaker quality, the Echo Dot has over 358,000 ratings and has been given 4.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon. We personally love the minimal look of the speaker and the fact that it comes in six different colors to complement practically any room in your house.
Another benefit of getting an Echo Dot is the fact that Amazon has so many accessories to go along with it. Whether you want a wall mount or a sleek outlet shelf, several options are ready and waiting. Plus, you can also purchase a warranty and accident protection plan (for just $7.99 for two years) so you don’t have to stress about any accidents happening.
If you want your Echo Dot to also be a digital clock on top of all of its other skills, you’re in luck — the Echo Dot with a clock is also currently on sale for just under $35.

For only $5 more, this version of the smart speaker can keep you punctual without having to prompt Alexa to give you the time. However, at the moment, the Echo Dot with the clock is only available in the Sandstone shade shown above.
Snag the right Echo Dot for you and start turning your house into a smart home.
