Whether you like playing music while you prepare dinner, tuning into your favorite podcast after a long day or hearing that one playlist that always puts you in a good mood, having an easy-to-use speaker is a real treat.
While top-rated speakers like the JBL Flip or the Bose SoundLink have received rave reviews thanks to their quality and design, they also cost upwards of $100. With that price tag in mind, this deal is super sweet. You can score an Amazon Echo Dot for $1 when you buy two months of Amazon Music Unlimited for just about $20.
You can think of the Echo Dot as a discreet smart speaker that packs a big punch. With over 412,000 reviews on Amazon (with some reviewers sharing that the electronic “really help make my life easier”), this petite speaker has quite the fanbase backing up its rich and loud sound. Not only can this gadget play your favorite media from Spotify, Apple Music, Sirius XM and more, but when you take advantage of this deal, you’re also getting access to the 60 million songs that are ready-to-go on Amazon Music Unlimited.
The Echo Dot also has Alexa, Amazon’s virtual assistant, built in so you can ask Alexa to turn on your music, tell you a joke or give you the weather forecast. Pro-tip: You can even go as far as having Alexa turn up your thermostat and turn off your lights if you purchase Alexa-enabled products like the Honeywell Home Thermostat and Gosund Smart Light Bulbs.
If you’re interested in having your speaker act as an analog clock, this deal also gives you the option to purchase the Echo Dot with a clock feature along with the two months of Amazon Music Unlimited for $9 more, making your total $29.97.
To paint the full picture, the Echo Dot and Echo Dot with the analog clock feature usually retail for $49.99 and $59.99, respectively. As with all Amazon subscription services, you can cancel your membership to Amazon Music Unlimited at any time.
But, while the Echo Dot has earned 4.7 out of 5 stars and over 110,000 positive reviews, nothing is perfect. Top complaints about the Echo Dot seem to be that in some models Alexa sounds “distant and muffled” and that the device can be “slow to respond” when compared to previous editions of the speaker.
If you want in on this deal, you may want to act sooner rather than later. There is no end date for the sale, but Amazon says it’s a limited time offer!
