Last chance to get the Echo Dot for $20 with Christmas delivery

This year’s Cyber Monday deals offered discounts on a wide variety of smart home devices, including significant price cuts on Amazon’s Alexa-powered smart speakers through Cyber Monday Amazon Echo deals. If you’ve been planning to buy multiple Echo devices for your house but you missed the Cyber Monday offers, the good news is that you can still purchase the third-generation Amazon Echo Dot from Best Buy for just $20, half its original price of $40 after a $20 discount. This might be your last chance to get the smart speaker delivered in time for Christmas, so you better hurry.

The third-generation Amazon Echo Dot, like the best smart speakers, offers easy access to a digital assistant, in this case Amazon’s Alexa. After a quick and simple setup process that utilizes the Alexa app for Android and iOS, you can already start using the best Alexa commands and downloading the best Alexa skills. Among the things that you can ask Alexa to do using voice commands are to play music, control your other smart homes devices, search for information, set reminders, and make announcements to other Echo devices around your home. With the Echo Dot’s fabric-wrapped exterior, it will blend in with the furniture of any room.

When comparing the third-generation Amazon Echo Dot and second-generation Amazon Echo Dot, the upgrades to the 2018 version of the smart speaker include a more attractive design, significantly better audio, and an improved microphone setup. Meanwhile, between the third-generation Amazon Echo Dot and the fourth-generation Amazon Echo Dot, the older model’s advantages include its slimmer design that makes it less noticeable, and its lower price so you can afford multiples to equip each room in your house with one.

The fourth-generation Amazon Echo Dot is already available, but the third-generation Amazon Echo Dot is still a worthwhile purchase, especially with Best Buy’s discount. The retailer is selling the smart speaker for just $20, after a $20 discount to its original price of $40. There’s no telling how long the offer will last, so you don’t have time to think about it. Given the device’s popularity, it may be delivered after Christmas if you don’t click that Buy Now button immediately.

Lenovo Tab M10 Plus.

Cyber Monday tablet deals aren't just about Cyber Monday iPad deals. If you're willing to give Android-powered tablets a try and you're on a tight budget, then you should consider the third-generation Lenovo Tab M10 Plus. Walmart is selling the tablet for just $129, for $70 in savings from its original price of $199.

Finalize your purchase as soon as you can.

Why you should buy the Lenovo Tab M10 Plus (3rd-gen)
Lenovo's no stranger to our list of the best Android tablets, and it's got another excellent product on the market with the third-generation Lenovo Tab M10 Plus. The tablet is powered by an octa-core processor and 4GB of RAM, which beats the recommendations of a quad-core processor and at least 2GB of RAM by our guide on how to pick a tablet. With these specifications, you won't experience any slowdowns or crashes while you're multitasking between the apps that you can download from the Google Play Store. The Lenovo Tab M10 Plus comes with Android 12 out of the box, but you can immediately upgrade it to Android 13.

Why you should buy the TCL 5-Series 4K QLED Roku TV
The TCL S555 is the new 5-Series model for 2022 which the brand just recently released. For its new 5-Series TVs, TCL went back to the Roku streaming platform, which should be a welcome change for many who were not fans of the Google TV OS found on the 2021 TCL S546 models. Although most of the bugs and kinks seem to have been fixed now with Google TV, the Roku software interface is still favored by many streamers thanks to its simplicity and user-friendliness. The Roku home screen puts all of your most-used streaming apps and input devices right there, letting you easily switch between your cable box, gaming console, media player, or streaming platforms without having to navigate input menus.

Amazon’s superb Echo Studio speaker is just $155 for Cyber Monday
Amazon Echo Studio Alexa Smart Speaker

Thanksgiving has begun to feel like a distant memory as Cyber Monday deals have fully kicked off. Let's get you started on the right path toward the best bargains with this deal from Best Buy, which is offering an Amazon Echo Studio for just $155. It normally sells for $200, but Best Buy has cut the price by $45 for the online shopping holiday. This is a rate typically reserved for holidays, so it could very well be your last chance to grab a decently priced Amazon Echo Studio this year.

Why you should buy the Amazon Echo Studio
Why buy? Long-standing greatness. In our initial Amazon Echo Studio review, we noted that it was the best Echo speaker yet and that the Amazon Echo Studio's 360-degree Dolby Atmos audio gave our reviewer chills. That review was two years ago. Where do more recent assessments place the Amazon Echo Studio? Still quite favorably. Our recent writeup on the best Amazon Alexa smart speakers ranks the Amazon Echo Studio as the best Alexa speaker for audiophiles due to its "class-leading bass" and effective soundstage.
