When Apple decides to copy something, you KNOW it’s a hot product. Such is the case with the Amazon Echo, a class-defining smart speaker that Apple reportedly plans to rip off next week when it unveils a new Siri-enabled smart speaker during WWDC 2017. The main problem with the idea of a Siri speaker is Siri, to put it bluntly. We won’t know anything for certain until next week, but the wiser move is like to go with Amazon’s tried and true Alexa speakers over anything powered by Siri.

If you want an Alexa speaker but you also want the best possible deal, you have two options. The first is to wait until November and see what Amazon has in store for Black Friday. The second is to snag a refurbished Amazon Echo or Echo Dot right now. They’re guaranteed, they’re warrantied, and they’re on sale at the lowest prices we’ve seen.
