On Black Friday, Amazon discounted its Echo Dot by 40 percent, allowing shoppers to get them for a mere $30. Considering the Echo Dot does everything the Echo does (except with a worse speaker), and the Echo retails for $100, that is an absolute steal. Al you have to do is plug an Echo Dot into a speaker you have lying around (or connect it via bluetooth to a portable speaker) and you have your own makeshift Echo for 1/3rd the price.
Now, unfortunately, we have a problem. Or at least I have a problem. Over a week after Black Friday, and the Echo Dot is still on sale for just $30. And you know what? I can’t stop buying them. That price is just SO low. First I bought another one so I could have one in my bedroom. Then I wanted one for the basement, and for my bathroom. Everyday, I order more…I have so many in my house now that I think everyone I know is getting an Echo Dot for Christmas.
I first got an Echo Dot when my roommate moved out and took is Amazon Echo with him. At that point the Echo Dot cost $50, but it still was less expensive than the Echo. And it has since satisfied all our Alexa needs.
