Right now you can get one for just $29.99 in Black or White. That's a price we haven't seen since Prime Day in mid-July.

For the past couple months, the best deals we've seen on the 2nd-generation Echo Dot have generally been in bundle deals... like getting bundled with a smart video doorbell or the Kids Edition that comes with a FreeTime Unlimited subscription. Getting a direct discount is not quite as common. Even during Amazon's big hardware sale in August, the Echo Dot didn't drop this low.

This hands-free, voice-controlled device uses Alexa to do all sorts of stuff. Play music, control smart home devices, make phone calls, read the news, check the weather, hear audiobooks, set timers and alarms, and oh yeah....shop on Amazon. These things are seriously handy. I find myself asking for weather updates when deciding what to wear, and playing music through my Echo Dot to keep my phone battery full. You'll surely find tons of uses for yours, too. Another great feature is that these are updated through the cloud, so everything happens in the background.
