The folks over at Woot, which is an Amazon subsidiary, is currently have a massive blowout sale on the third-generation Echo Dot. The device typically retails for $49.99, and we recently saw it on sale for $29.99. However, Woot is currently selling the smart speaker for an incredibly low $19.99. To make the deal even sweeter, Amazon Prime members get an additional $5 off, taking the total price down to just $14.99 (free shipping for Prime members). You can get it in Charcoal, Sandstone, or Heather Gray.
There is a caveat to this deal, however. These aren't new units – they’re used, meaning that they are likely either returns or devices that were traded in to Amazon. Woot describes the condition of the Echo Dots, writing:
These units have been tested and verified internally by Amazon to meet the specified product condition, but may have cosmetic blemishes. The units may be repackaged and sold in a brown box.
While the condition might be more of a concern with something you're interacting by hand all day long (i.e. your smartphone), it's probably less of a concern for something like an Echo Dot that is going to sit on a shelf or a counter, never to be touched again once it's initially setup. So, in this case, we'd gladly take the savings and run with it.
In addition to the Echo Dot deal, Woot also has the following [used] Echo products on sale:
- Amazon Echo (first-gen): $29.99
- Amazon Echo Show (first-gen): $49.99
- Amazon Echo Sub: $79.99
- Amazon Echo Input: $9.99
- Amazon Alexa Voice Remote: $4.99
All of the above deals are or course subject to availability, so the early bird gets the worm.
