If you’ve been waiting to join the voice-commanded robot servant craze, or if you just want an extra one one for another room in the house, you literally will not find a better deal than this. It’s kind of insane.
For a limited time, you can get an Echo Dot for $0.99 (normally about 50 bucks!) with 1 month of Amazon Music Unlimited (AMU). If you’re a Prime member, AMU is just $7.99 for one month, and if you’re not, it’s $9.99.
So basically, you’re getting the Echo Dot and ad-free access to 50 million songs with unlimited skips for about $10. Sheesh…you can barely get a basic-ass pumpkin spice latte for that!
If you need a refresher, the Echo dot is kind of like the magical lamp, and Alexa is the genie inside. You can ask her to set an alarm, control your music, read you the news, tell you a joke, turn on the lights, adjust your thermostat, order stuff from Amazon, check the weather, and do your dishes. (OK, not the dishes thing, but everything else is really real.)
Plus, Alexa has thousands of other skills, lots of which are perfect for parents! There’s a Nursing Notes skill that reminds you which side baby nursed on last, and when. There’s a Kids Court skill to help settle disputes, and a Whose Turn skill to remind the fam who’s up on the chore chart. Alexa can order a pizza, play hide & seek, and read your kid a personalized bedtime story. I mean, we’re not saying she’s almost as good of a parent as we are…but we’re not not saying that, either.
So, if you were planning to wait for Black Friday to add Alexa to the fam, change your plans and get this deal before it runs out.
Seriously. Stop reading and go get it. Now!
Fine print alert: You’re subscribing for autorenewal of AMU every month, but you can cancel at any time and still keep the Dot. (Spoiler: you won’t want to! Trust us, once you go AMU, it’s hard to go back.)
