Amazon just gave Amazon Echo a $40 discount to celebrate its 2nd birthday.


Haven’t you heard? The Amazon Echo is actually really great (and only getting better over time), and you can save $40 on yours, for a limited time.

In addition to being a pretty solid Bluetooth speaker, the Echo can check the weather, turn on your lights, read you the news, trigger custom IFTTT recipes, order food, and—my personal favorite—read you Jeopardy questions like a robotic Alex Trebek.

Bonus: If the $140 price tag is holding you back, remember, you can always go with the smaller version of the Amazon Echo by going with Echo Dot. It’s $50 and you can sync multiple devices together. It’s a great way to test Alexa out before diving into the Amazon Echo. Click here for more info.

You might be thinking that you’ll wait and see if there’s a better deal on the Echo on Black Friday. But we suspect that Amazon will be offering several high-profile deals during Deals Week that you can only order via Alexa, in which case you’ll really want to have your Echo set up and ready to go before you finish eating your turkey.

Here’s the key features:

  • Plays all your music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more using just your voice
  • Fills the room with immersive, 360º omni-directional audio
  • Allows hands-free convenience with voice-control
  • Hears you from across the room with far-field voice recognition, even while music is playing
  • Answers questions, reads audiobooks and the news, reports traffic and weather, gives info on local businesses, provides sports scores and schedules, and more using the Alexa Voice Service
  • Controls lights, switches, and thermostats with compatible WeMo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Wink, Insteon, Nest, and ecobee smart home devices
  • Always getting smarter and adding new features, plus thousands of skills like Uber, Domino’s, and more
