This little puck normally runs $35, but for a limited time, Amazon is offering the Echo Input for $19.99.
Granted, the Dot sells for $50, though it routinely goes on sale. As Mother's Day draws near, it's a good bet you'll be able to score a Dot for around $35, possibly even less. (Following the holidays, Amazon cut the price to $30 and kept it there through February.)
In fact, the Echo Dot Kids Edition is on sale right now for $35. And today only, A4C has the 2nd-gen Echo Dot for $29.95.
Make no mistake, the Echo Input is a decent deal at $20, but a Dot might be a smarter buy -- especially if you can score one in the same price range.
