Best-selling Powecom KN95 masks, sleek black AccuMed face masks, and Purell hand sanitizer have been top-sellers among our readers all month long. Needless to say, it’s not exactly a mystery why that would be the case. Despite three coronavirus vaccines now having been authorized, experts say things won’t even start to get back to normal until sometime in late 2021. Fight off your pandemic fatigue, be responsible, and stock up on essentials while they’re down to Amazon’s lowest prices in months.
While you’re at it though, there’s another deal on Amazon that you definitely need to check out before it disappears.Today's Top Deal Echo Buds have noise cancellation just like AirPods Pro — but they're on sale for $100 less!

Amazon’s Echo Dot is one of the most popular hardware devices the company has ever made, and it’s pretty clear that there are two main reasons for that. 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.
Last year, 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.
Amazon’s 4th-gen Dot happens to be on sale right now for $29.99, which is a terrific 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. But if you go for the Echo Flex instead, 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!
There’s no way this deal will last very long, so get in on the action while you can.Echo Flex - Plug-in mini smart speaker with Alexa Sengled Bluetooth bulb List Price:$33.98 Price:$9.99 You Save:$23.99 (71%) Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission
