So Prime Day might be over but Best Buy are offering a cracking deal on the echo Dot for only $18.99 – normally $39.99
I know it’s not the current model but in my opinion it’s still a better looking unit. This is the Gen 3 echo Dot. The Gen 4 is round and looks like a big ball of knitting – I think I prefer the Gen 3 echo for it’s hockey puck look and feel.
My guess is that Best Buy have a ton of stock of the echo Dot and are trying to move through them with this almost 50% discount. So, who knows how long it will last.
There is nothing lacking in this unit. It still has:
- Voice Control with Alexa
- Music streaming – Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Sirius XM, and more
- Get the weather
- Control your smart home
- Add more Amazon Skills to your echo to do even more – play games etc
I have 3 echo Dot Gen 3 (and still have a Gen 2) and it’s great. I love how it allows me to add items to my groceries list, remind me to do things at a certain time, control my smart devices including lights and more.
The Gen 4 has some improvements but not enough to pass up this amazing price at Best Buy.
The new Gen 4 echo is almost $50 so this is an amazing deal for something that does everything the Gen 4 echo dot does.
I’ve already posted more than once that the Gen 3 echo Dot is the perfect first device when starting your smart home.
