The Amazon Echo lineup now includes a bunch of devices, but the Echo Dot remains one of the most affordable ways to add Alexa smarts to your homerooms. That’s especially true when it comes to deals like this. At Amazon right now, you can save with the newly released Echo Dot with clock and snag it for the best price yet, as well as the regular Echo Dot and child-friendly Echo Dot Kids Edition. There is no word on how long these discounts are going to last, so you want to get your orders in immediately to make the most of these savings.
The Echo Dot with Clock is one of the newest additions to its Echo line from Amazon and only shipping started on October 16. It’s $20 off at just $39.99 and down to the lowest price we’ve ever seen for it. This model is great for a nightstand, a desk, or anywhere else you might want to look down quickly and see how long it is. The Echo Dot can also display the outside temperature or your current timers in addition to displaying the time, making it very useful for even more situations.
Of course, the Echo Dot also gives you access to Alexa’s extensive smart feature library, such as the ability to control smart home products, play music from Apple Music, Spotify, and more, as well as answering your questions, setting timers, and just about anything else you can think of. If you want to use it to kickstart your smart home, you can even bundle it with a TP-Link smart plug or a LIFX smart bulb for just $5 more.
The regular 3rd-gen Echo Dot is also $20 off at $29.99 if you don’t need the clock functionality.
The updated Echo Dot Kids Edition is another newly released Echo Dot device on sale. It sells for $69.99 on a regular basis, but today you can snag one in either Blue or Rainbow styles for just $49.99. That’s just $5 more than it was priced during the huge sale of Amazon’s Prime Day that was only available to members of Amazon Prime. Unlike that deal, everybody has the offer of today. Your purchase also includes a full year of FreeTime Unlimited, which gives your child access to age-appropriate books, music, games, cartoons, audiobooks, and more, some of which can be accessed through the Echo Dot.
Children will love the Echo Dot, and they will probably make it faster than most adults. They can get Alexa to play their favorite songs with a few words, tell them stories, call approved family members or friends, and more. You can set daily time limits and review the activity of your child with built-in parental controls, and there’s also a Microphone Off button to mute the microphone if you’re worried about that. If it breaks, you can return it and have it replaced free of charge, it is backed by a two-year worry-free guarantee meaning.
