Now you have no more reason to be jealous of your friends new Amazon Echo. Score your own Echo Dot for only $50!


The Amazon Echo Dot, released earlier this year, is basically a smaller version of the Amazon Echo that you could put in any room of your home, uplifting its larger sibling’s Alexa-powered smarts from a single-room affair to an omniscient personal assistant ready to respond to every back and call.

The only kicker when it was launched was that it was a little on the pricey side of $90, and you could only order it through an Amazon Echo, which at the time was heavily backordered.

Luckily, all three of those obstacles are fixed with today’s re-release.

The hardware is basically unchanged (save for hardware volume buttons, and a new white version), but it only costs $50 now, and you can order it from any web browser, with delivery set for October. Plus, if you really want to put them in every room of your house, you can buy six for the price of five with promo code DOT6PACK, or 12 for the price of 10 with code DOT12PACK.

These do have tiny speakers built-in, but if you’re planning on using it to actively listen to music or radio, you’ll want to plug it into a larger set of speakers, or pair it via Bluetooth to something like the Anker SoundCore. Amazon is also offering a $35 discount, today only, when you pair the Dot with a Bose SoundLink Mini.

Here’s the key details: 

  • Echo Dot (2nd Generation) is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, provide information, read the news, set alarms, and more
  • Connects to speakers or headphones through Bluetooth or 3.5 mm stereo cable to play music from Prime Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn
  • Controls lights, fans, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, and more with compatible connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, ecobee, and others
  • Hears you from across the room with 7 far-field microphones for hands-free control, even in noisy environments or while playing music
  • Includes a built-in speaker so it can work on its own as a smart alarm clock in the bedroom, an assistant in the kitchen, or anywhere you might want a voice-controlled computer
  • Always getting smarter and adding new features, plus thousands of skills like Uber, Domino’s, and more
