  • The Echo Dot is Amazon’s best-selling smart speaker ever, thanks in large part to how affordable it is.
  • It retails for $50, but it goes on sale all the time. For example, right now you can get a new 4th-gen Dot for just $29.99.
  • Another Alexa speaker has now stolen the title of Amazon’s most affordable smart speaker — the Echo Flex, and it’s on sale today at the all-time low price of just $9.99 with a FREE smart light bulb.

Sleek black AccuMed face masks and Purell hand sanitizer have been best-sellers among our readers for a while now. Of course, it’s not exactly a mystery why that would be the case. The coronavirus pandemic is still out of control in the US. Even with two vaccines now authorized, experts say things won’t really start to get back to normal until sometime late next year. Fight off your pandemic fatigue, be responsible, and stock up on essentials while they’re down to Amazon’s lowest prices in months.

And while you’re at it, there’s another deal on Amazon that you definitely need to check out before it disappears.

The Echo Dot is one of the most popular hardware devices Amazon has ever made, and it’s pretty clear that there are two main reasons. First, it gives users access to Amazon’s beloved virtual personal assistant, Alexa. And second, the $50 retail price makes it wonderfully affordable. In fact, it used to be the most affordable smart speaker in Amazon’s lineup until the company launched an even cheaper model that so many people still don’t even know about.

Amazon released a new entry-level Alexa speaker last year called the Echo Flex. While the Echo Dot is great for Alexa and for streaming music, the Echo Flex is pretty much a dedicated Alexa device. It’s very compact and doesn’t take up any space on a desk or table because it’s just a small box that plugs into the wall. On top of that, it retails for just $25, which is half of what Amazon charges for the Dot.

The Dot happens to be on sale right now for $29.99, which is an incredible value. If you buy two of them with the coupon code DOT2PACK, you’ll only pay $24.99 each — that’s the same as Amazon’s retail price for the Echo Flex. If you go for the Echo Flex instead, however, and you’ll only pay $9.99! That’s the lowest price Amazon has ever charged for an Alexa speaker, and it even includes a free LED smart light bulb!

This is a deal that likely won’t last long, so get in on the action while you can.
