Having smart speakers around the house can be really helpful. Basic tasks like checking the weather, setting timers and alarms to keep you on schedule and streaming music can all be done complete hands-free, making life way more convenient. If you're a music-lover who always has a song playing throughout your house, Amazon has a deal worth checking out. 

Right now, any new subscriber who signs up for a one month individual plan of Amazon Music Unlimited can get a third-gen Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker for just $1, saving you $39 compared to buying the speaker on its own. To get the discount, you must be a new Echo device customer, and buy both the speaker and subscription on a single order, which in total costs you just $10 for both.

The third-gen Echo Dot, which was originally released in 2018, is no longer Amazon's most advanced smart speaker, but still offers many of the same features and functions as the newer fourth-gen Dot. You can use it to control other Alexa-enabled smart devices like lights or locks, set custom alarms and routines and stream music from tons of different services, including Amazon Music Unlimited.

Amazon Music Unlimited, which starts at $10 a month for the individual plan (or $9 if you're a Prime member), is one of our favorite music streaming services for 2022. You get access to over 90 million, many of which you can stream in high-res lossless quality, as well as millions of podcast episodes. You don't have to sit through any ads, and you can also download songs and albums so you can take them with you anywhere you go. Just keep in mind that your membership will auto-renew until you cancel 

Don't need an Echo Dot? Amazon also offers a free 30 day trial for new subscribers.
