The big day is finally here! And let me tell you, this is the deal I've been waiting for. As soon as Prime Day launched, I ran (well clicked) right over to the electronics department to check for any discounts on Amazon Echo products. The first one I saw? They have the third-generation Amazon Echo Dot for only $29.99!
This iteration of the Amazon Echo Dot usually sells for $69.99 – and while it's often on sale, we almost never see prices like this. All three colours (Charcoal, Sandstone and Heather Grey) are marked down to 57% off.
The Amazon Echo Dot is by far their most popular smart speaker, and if you're not too familiar with it, here's a quick briefer. This little speaker lets you play music and audiobooks – and you control everything with your voice. You can ask Alexa to change the volume, skip to another song, check the weather and more, all without getting up or actually pressing any buttons. And if you buy two, you can even get stereo sound. It also pairs with other smart home devices, so you can use the Echo Dot to control your thermostat and turn off the lights.
To qualify for this and any other Amazon Prime Day deals, you have to be an Amazon Prime member. If you've never signed up for a membership or don't have an active one, there's still time to join. Membership is $7.99 per month across most of Canada, and new members are eligible for a FREE trial to test things out. I actually had to re-up my membership this morning after letting it lapse (oops), but I'm SO happy I did!
Oh, and there's one more thing. Amazon Canada also rolled out FREE one-day shipping for members! If you spend at least $25 on qualifying items NOW, you should receive your goodies tomorrow!
