At $50, Amazon’s wildly popular Echo Dot smart speaker is the most affordable Alexa speaker Amazon offers. It doesn’t quite have the oomph of the Amazon Echo or the portability of the Amazon Tap, but it gives users access to all the same great Alexa features. Well, if you thought $50 was a fair price, just wait until you hear about Amazon’s current one-day sale.
If you’re a Prime subscriber and you’re willing to buy a refurbished Echo Dot — and there’s literally no reason not to — you’re about to save a ton of money. On Wednesday, for one day only, Amazon is selling refurbished Dots for just $29.99! That’s an unheard-of price, and it comes at the perfect time — Amazon is going to be offering a ton of great voice-only deals next week for Prime Day, and you’ll need one of Amazon’s Alexa speakers to take advantage.
Oh, and remember what we said about the Echo Dot not having the sound quality of the Echo or the portability of the Tap? Well, this awesome accessory takes care of both of those issues.
