The most popular smart speaker Amazon has ever made just dropped to within $5 of its lowest price ever in a surprise sale! With the brand new 3rd-gen Echo Dot now shipping, Amazon has decided to begin offering a big discount on last year’s model. The new one is a solid value at $50, but truth be told it doesn’t improve upon the experience from the second-gen model all that much. That’s why we definitely recommend taking advantage of Amazon’s current sale on the Certified Refurbished Echo Dot instead, which slashes the price to just $29.99. It’s not going to last long at this price, so grab one (or several) while you can.
Here are some key details from the product page:
