Among Amazon's best Cyber Monday deals has been its smart home bundles -- Echo smart home speakers paired with a seemingly endless supply of free Philips Hue smart bulbs. Among the best bundles was the new 2022 Echo Dot with Clock sold with a pair of Philips Hue smart bulbs thrown in for free, all for just $40. That was a savings of $52 -- a $60 device with $32 worth of bulbs. Unfortunately, that deal is gone -- but its replacement is still pretty great. 

For Cyber Monday, you can get the Echo Dot with Clock and a single free bulb for $40. That's a savings of $36. 

The fifth-gen Echo Dot with Clock is the latest (2022) model in its lineup. Thanks to the built-in microphone, you can ask Alexa to tell you the time, as well as check the weather, set a timer, update your calendar and much more completely hands-free. It can also be used to control other smart devices on your network, like the Philips Hue smart bulb. The new clock offers a better display than previous models, and this model also doubles as a range extender for Amazon's Eero Wi-Fi systems. 

This bundle includes a single white A19 Hue smart bulb. With the Echo Dot, you can turn this light on or off using only the sound of your voice, or with the companion app on your smartphone. They're 75-watt bulbs that boast 1,100 lumens of brightness and come with preset lighting modes to help you get energized in the morning or relax after a long day. If you don't need the clock feature, Amazon is also offering $41 off a single-bulb bundle with a regular fifth-gen Echo Dot you can pick up for just $25 right now.
