Why get the Echo when the Echo Dot is currently on sale for $29.99? Simple: The full-size Echo is just a bigger, better-sounding smart speaker, one that's loud enough to fill a room with music. The Dot all but demands to be paired with an external speaker.
Could the Echo's price drop even lower on Prime Day? Honestly, I'd be surprised, though I suppose Amazon might offer it for as low as $60. If you don't want to wait, this is already an unequivocally great deal at $65.
