Have you never bothered with an Echo before? Wondering what all the hype is about? If you're new to smart home control or at least new to the Amazon ecosystem version of it, then today is a great time to give it a shot. New customers can get an Amazon Echo Dot 3rd-generation smart speaker and a month of Amazon Music Unlimited's Individual Plan for just $14.98 total (opens in new tab). Considering AMU is normally $10 a month, that essentially gives you the smart speaker for just $5. That same speaker is currently $40 at Amazon (opens in new tab) when bought without this deal. If you're an Amazon Prime member and are eligible for this deal, you do get the Amazon Prime price for AMU, making the total just $12.98 instead.
Remember that AMU is a subscription service, and it will automatically renew at the end of the month for $9.99 a month (or $7.99 if you have Amazon Prime (opens in new tab)). It's totally up to you whether you want to continue the service, and you can cancel it at anytime even during the 1-month trial without losing time you've already paid for.
Amazon Music Unlimited gives you access to tens of millions of songs, exclusive Alexa voice features and programs, the ability to skip all the songs you want, ad-free programming, and more. You can even listen offline by downloading songs. Plus Amazon Music Unlimited uses a program that can basically be downloaded anywhere, including on your computer, smartphone, tablet, or smart TVs. And, of course, you can access it by asking Amazon Alexa in your new Echo Dot to play your favorite tunes.
The Echo Dot is a nice piece of smart tech. It is super compact and can fit just about anywhere. You'll even forget it's there most of the time until you talk to it. The Echo Dot has powerful speakers and a powerful mic that can hear you from across the room then blast music that fills the space.
