Getting your smart home set up is fairly affordable these days, but often you end up shelling out not only for smart devices but also for additional hubs to get everything working together. Not with the Amazon Echo Plus. It has one built-in. The 1st-gen devices are being offered brand new for just $49.99 at Woot for a limited time in black, white, and silver while supplies last. At that price, they cost less than a refurbished model directly at Amazon, yet you get a brand new product with a 1-year warranty. Shipping is free if you log into Woot's site with your Amazon Prime account, otherwise it's an additonal $6.
