It takes place months later than usual, but we finally know when the sales extravaganza of Amazon Prime Day is taking place: 13-14 October. A non-stop barrage of businesses can be expected throughout those days, but Amazon already drops out some early deals.
Right now, Amazon Prime members are able to use the promo code DOTPRIME2PK to snack a two-pack of Echo Dot devices for $40. This saves $60 when you buy the two compact smart speakers without a discount, which gives you access to your Alexa voice assistant over a wider area of your home. Just add two dots and then enter the code when you check out.
These are not brand new models which, like the larger Echo standard, had been announced last week with globe-like architecture. However, in the past two years, these little pucks have been the best sellers and this is a hell of a deal for Prime members only.
