Black Friday may be over, but some online retailers are still letting their Black Friday deals hang around a bit longer. Unsurprisingly, one of those retailers is Amazon and there are still Amazon Black Friday deals worthy of your attention, especially if you plan on buying a new smart speaker. In fact, Amazon is selling its own and including an Amazon Smart Plug as part of a bundle.
This bundled Echo Dot and Smart Plug deal is effectively a steal when you consider that it normally sells for $75. With this deal, you’re getting the bundle and saving $41. And all you have to do is pay $34 to get Amazon’s latest smart speaker and its Smart Plug.
But let’s get into what the 4th-gen Echo Dot has to offer. With the Echo Dot, you can use voice commands to play various entertainment options (streaming music, radio, podcasts, and even audiobooks). You can use its Alexa voice assistant feature to do things like answer questions, create reminders, or even access the news. You can even use the Echo Dot to manage your smart home’s various functions such as your home’s lighting, temperature, or lock doors. The Echo Dot also allows for hands-free calling and can be used as an intercom to make announcements to various rooms in your house.
In Digital Trends’Echo Dot (4th gen) review, it received mostly high praise from us. We particularly liked its audio quality and felt that “it’s the best-sounding speaker in the $50 price range.” We also liked its security feature, Alexa Guard which can watch over your home and let you know if it hears dangerous sounds like glass breaking or a smoke alarm.
But if the Echo Dot isn’t quite what you need in a smart speaker, you may want to consider this deal on. With this deal, you’ll only spend $45 and you’ll save 50% off the original price of $90. And $45 actually buys you a lot here: You’ll get a smart speaker with a 5.5-inch smart display that can play movies, TV shows, or even the news via this smart speaker, plus manage your smart home, use it as an intercom, and even place video calls.
It’s important to shop around to find the best deals for you, even with smart speakers. And so, if you need to look around a bit more, you should start with these other Black Friday Amazon Echo deals we’ve gathered below. And if you’re still building your smart home, don’t forget to take a look at our roundup of the best Black Friday smart home deals.
