Like several other popular sites out there, we first thought the deal was a mistake when we came across it. I mean, can you blame us? The idea that you can get a brand new 3rd-Generation Echo Dot for just $8.98 is absolutely nuts! Well, guess what: it’s not a mistake and if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can still get in on the action!
Here’s how it works: you’re actually buying an Echo Dot for $0.99 and signing up for Amazon Music Unlimited for $7.99 per month, with the first month’s payment taken up front. That’s a total of $8.98! Amazon Music Unlimited is just like Spotify and Apple Music, but cheaper so you should probably make the switch anyway. If for some reason you don’t want to though, you can just go to this page and cancel AMU right after you place your order. You’ll still get to stream all the music you want for a month, but then your subscription won’t auto-renew and you’ll get to keep your dirt cheap Echo Dot!
