The Amazon online marketplace and the company’s staggering nationwide distribution network are obviously both incredible feats. But you know what? It’s entirely possible that neither one is Amazon’s crowning achievement. I think that it might actually be Alexa instead, and people who use it every day probably agree.

Even some of the biggest Alexa fans in the world aren’t aware of one of my favorite Alexa gadgets, however. It’s called the Echo Auto, and it adds hands-free Alexa to just about any car in a matter of seconds. It also happens to be on sale right now for just $34.99, and there’s even an option to get it with four months of Amazon Music Unlimited for free.

Alexa is terrific indeed. The problem for so many people, however, is what happens when they leave the house. They lose access to all their Echo speakers since Amazon doesn’t make any portable Echo speakers anymore.

That ends now, however, when we introduce you to the Echo Auto. And there’s an incredible Amazon Echo Auto deal on refurbs that you’d have to be crazy to pass up!

There’s only one problem with this deal, however. Since these are refurbished models, that means they’re in limited supply. And because $34.99 is a huge discount, there’s a very good chance that Amazon will sell out of them soon.

Amazon was well aware of Alexa’s biggest limitation. That’s exactly why the company created products like Echo Buds that give you access to Alexa on the go. Then there’s the Echo Auto, which gives you hands-free access to Alexa in your car while you drive.

Alexa is no longer merely a luxury for so many people out there. Instead, Amazon’s virtual personal assistant is a necessity these days. That means it’s just as important to access Alexa on the go as it is in your home.

I can’t even remember what life was like before I had Alexa doing my bidding. Alexa turns the lights on and off for me. It shows me who’s at my front door thanks to a Ring Video Doorbell and an Echo Show. Plus, it makes my coffee in the morning and arms my alarm system at night.

I’m so used to having the ability to speak commands to Alexa that I have definitely caught myself doing it once or twice when I wasn’t even near an Echo speaker. Oops!

Thankfully, I came across an Amazon Echo Auto deal that changed everything.

People including myself really only have one problem with all this reliance on Alexa. It’s the fact that Alexa isn’t readily available once we leave our houses. Or at least, that used to be the case. Thanks to one of Amazon’s best Alexa smart devices, I don’t have to worry anymore.

It’s called the Echo Auto, and it’s basically an Echo Dot for your car. It gives you hands-free access to all the Alexa skills you love. Plus, it plays Alexa’s voice or streaming music through my car’s speakers.

This is a must-have device for anyone who uses Alexa. And right now, it’s on sale for just $34.99 instead of $55. That’s a gigantic 36% discount from the full retail price, and it’s the lowest price of all time for this model.

Also, as I mentioned earlier, you can get the Echo Auto bundled with four months of free Amazon Music Unlimited for the same $34.99.
