Amazon’s Echo Dot is by far the least expensive way to add Alexa to your home in a high-quality speaker. It’s normally priced at just $50, which is obviously far cheaper than the $180 Amazon Echo. In fact, you can get three Dots for less than the cost of one Echo and still have money left over for dinner. Of course, Amazon loves to offer up an additional discount every now and then, and such is the case on Wednesday.

Today, for one day only, Amazon is slashing $10 off the price of the wildly popular Echo Dot. That drops the cost of a Dot to just $40, so you can now buy four and a half Dots for the price of a single Amazon Echo speaker. The offer is only good until midnight PDT tonight, so don’t let it slip away.

Here’s what you need to know from the Echo Dot product page:

  • Echo Dot (2nd Generation) is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, read the news, set alarms, read audiobooks from Audible, and more
  • Connects to speakers or headphones through Bluetooth or 3.5 mm stereo cable to play music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn
  • Introducing Alexa calling and messaging, a new way to be together with family and friends. Just ask Alexa to call or message anyone with an Echo, Echo Dot, or the Alexa App.
  • Controls lights, fans, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, locks, and more with compatible connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, ecobee, and others
  • Hears you from across the room with 7 far-field microphones for hands-free control, even in noisy environments or while playing music
  • Includes a built-in speaker so it can work on its own as a smart alarm clock in the bedroom, an assistant in the kitchen, or anywhere you might want a voice-controlled computer; Amazon Echo is not required to use Echo Dot
  • Always getting smarter and adding new features, plus thousands of skills like Uber, Domino’s, and more

And if you want to save an extra $2, you can get a refurbished Echo Dot right now for $38.
