Time to add another device to your smart home. The 4th-generation Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker has dropped to a low price of $27.99 through Amazon. This is the first time it has ever dropped this low outside of big sales events like Black Friday. Heck, it's the first time we've seen it go on sale this year. The speaker, Amazon's latest generation, normally goes for around $50. You're saving a good chunk of change and you can pick between the three color options to find your favorite.

You can save in other ways, too. For example, if you want a smart plug you can control through your new Echo Dot, get the two combined together for just $32.99. That's basically giving you the smart plug for just $5 extra.

If your most common question to Amazon Alexa is "What time is it?" then grab the version with a built-in LED clock for $39.99. That's $20 off its regular price and the best deal we've seen since December. Get the Kids Edition of the Echo Dot for the same $39.99 price, which is also a $20 discount.
