The Echo Dot has always been one of our favorite smart speakers, as it is a relatively affordable entry point for Amazon's Alexa ecosystem. The current third-generation Echo Dot has an MSRP pf $49.99 and regularly goes on sale for $29.99 (or $19.99 during Black Friday promotions). However, Amazon's latest deal on the Echo Dot will have you paying much, much less.
The online retail giant is currently selling the Echo Dot in a bundle, that will see you paying just 99 cents for the smart speaker. There's a catch, however; the bundle includes one month of Amazon Music Unlimited at a cost of $7.99. That takes the total price of the bundle to a still smoking hot $8.98 with free shipping.
When you sign up for the bundle offer, you'll automatically be setup for auto-renewal billing with Amazon Music Unlimited, where you'll continue to pay $7.99 per month. Amazon is likely hoping that people will partake in this offer and "forget" to cancel the auto-renewal process. However, it's easy to go in and cancel this subscription after you claim this offer during your first month of service.
Amazon has this bundle offer available in either Charcoal, Heather Gray, or Sandstone for the Echo Dot. You'll be able to use Alexa voice control to manipulate all of your smart home devices (i.e. thermostats, lights, fans, etc.) and have access to thousands of skills. In addition to being able to control your Amazon Music Unlimited tunes by voice, you'll also have hands-free access to Apple Music, Pandora, Sirius XM and Spotify (among others).
As for Amazon Music Unlimited, the music streaming service gives you access to over 50 million songs, allowing you to play back any song whenever you want. The service is ad-free and you'll have access to offline music with unlimited skips.
