At $50, the Echo Dot is Amazon’s most affordable Alexa product. Well, aside from the Alexa-enabled Amazon Dash Wand, which is completely free ($20, less a $20 credit the first time you use it). When Amazon prices the Echo Dot at a discount, it flies off the virtual store shelves. In fact, it was one of Amazon’s two best-selling products this past Black Friday. The Echo Dot hasn’t been discounted since that big sale ended… until now. Amazon is running a special unpublicized sale for Prime subscribers only, dropping the price of the Echo Dot to just $39.99. There’s no telling when this deal will vanish, so pick up a few Dots now while they’re $10 cheaper than normal.
