Most products typically don’t see their first big discount until sometime after they’re released, but that’s not the case with one of Amazon’s latest additions. The Echo Dot (3rd Gen) Smart Speaker With Clock was just announced last week and it immediately went up for preorder. Hopefully you didn’t pull the trigger right away though, because it just got its first discount! Preorder today and you can snag one for $49.99, which is the same price as a regular Echo Dot and $10 off the new model’s $60 retail price.
