Amazon discounts its brands often, but some of the device deals in this Easter sale have the best prices we’ve seen since last November’s Black Friday. We gathered the best Easter deals for Amazon brand devices, with savings of as much as $100.

The third-generation Echo Dot is Amazon’s best-selling smart speaker ever. Amazon, the company known for its almost infinite inventory, ran out of Dots before Christmas.

Normally priced at $50 each, the Amazon Echo Dot is just $40 for one smart speaker during this sale. The best deal by far, however, is for three Dots. Instead of the normal $150 total price, or even $120 at the per-unit sales price (when you order three Echo Dots separately but during the same transaction during this sale), the checkout price is only $70 — lower than the Black Friday and Cyber Monday prices. Whether you want to buy your first smart speaker or add more Dots to your home, the Echo Dot 3-pack is an extraordinary deal.
