The Amazon Echo is without question one of the coolest “Internet of Things” devices out there, and right now you can enjoy a rare opportunity to purchase one at a discount. Remember what a flop the Amazon Fire Phone was? Think of Amazon Echo as the exact opposite in every possible way. While the Fire Phone piled a confusing interface and a bunch of useless features on top of Android, Echo is an intuitive device that makes finding answers to queries and controlling smart devices in your home an absolute breeze.

$179.99 is a great price for the Amazon Echo but for Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, Black Friday Weekend and Cyber Monday only, Amazon is knocking $30 off the price of the Echo, so you can get it for $149.99 shipped. And don’t forget that if you’re not already an Amazon Prime member, you can get a free 30-day trial right here.

These are the key details for the Amazon Echo:
