Prime Day kicks off tomorrow, and Amazon is getting warmed up with a slew of incredible early deals. We've been staying on top of these deals as they break, and we have one for you right now that's hard to believe — the best of the best of early Prime Day deals: The fourth generation Echo Dot smart speaker for half its regular price.
If you snag only one thing before Prime Day, make it the Echo Dot. The price is unbelievable: just $25 — that's the all-time lowest price on this brilliant smart-home speaker. This item is so essential — and so beloved — that it's earned a five-star rating from more than 232,000 reviewers.
But this deal is only available to Amazon Prime members. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here and take advantage of this and other offers. Then you can decided whether or not you want to continue or cancel your membership.
Back to this steal of a deal: Normally priced at $50, the Echo Dot is a small but mighty speaker that can stream tunes from Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, Sirius XM and more with an all-new sphere design. Alexa is included, of course, and you can always ask her for the latest news, weather and sports updates. Plus you can use your Echo Dot to control other smart home devices with the sound of your voice.
“This is exactly what I was looking for,” raved a happy Amazon shopper. “The sound is loud and clear. Now I am able to hear all online stations with no interference. The design is space-saving, with rubber underneath to prevent sliding.”
You can even connect this clever speaker to your phone via Bluetooth, so you can bring your own music to the party. And you can pair another Echo Dot to it to create amazing stereo sound — for much less than the cost of a single Bluetooth speaker from brands like Bose or Sonos.
“Tiny size. Phenomenal sound,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “I have almost every single version of the Echo and Echo Dot in my house for an easy to use Spotify music setup to surround my upstairs with music, but this little orb is the best sounding of the lot.”
Privacy concerns? The Echo Dot is built with multiple layers of protection, including a physical button you can press to turn off its microphone and disconnect it from Wi-Fi.
At just $25 for Prime members only — down from $50 — the Echo Dot deal is a pre-Prime Day sale not to miss. Whether you've been longing to convert your house into a smart home or you just want to rock out, this is a special opportunity.
The Echo Dot 4 comes in three colors: Twilight Blue, Glacier White and Charcoal — all are on sale for just $25. At this price, you can grab one for each room, so you can dance it out anytime, anywhere.
