Amazon Echo Dot 3rd gen

There's rarely a shortage of smart home deals coming out of Amazon. The company's many smart speakers and other devices regularly going on sale. Whether you're already set up with an Alexa-powered smart home or you're just getting started, Amazon is offering another way to save on its Echo hardware today with 50% off the third-gen Echo Dot. Down to $20, this is the best price we've seen since holiday sales ended, giving you the chance to add Alexa speakers around your home for less. The deal is being matched at Best Buy, too.

The third-gen Echo Dot is no longer the latest and greatest Echo Dot model on the market, but it is still a solid smart speaker. The fabric design provides a richer sound than previous models and you can even pair it with other Echo Dot devices and Bluetooth speakers for stereo audio or Alexa access all around your home. Whether you want to play music, check the weather, set reminders or more, you can do it all hands-free.

Though today's deal doesn't represent an all-time low or a discount on the newest Alexa devices, it's a chance to start or expand your smart home setup without waiting for the next major sale like Prime Day in the summer.
