Released earlier in 2020 with an all-new sphere design, the fourth generation Echo Dot—which is marked down from $50 to just $30 at Amazon—is a small but powerful speaker with a glow-light base that can fill a room with high quality audio. It can also stream tunes from Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, Sirius XM ,and more with clearer, more robust audio quality than earlier iterations.
You can even pair it with another Echo Dot to create amazing stereo sound. Alexa is included for the latest news and weather. Shoppers love the compact dimensions, which make the Echo Dot great for smaller rooms.
“This is exactly what I was looking for,” raved a happy Amazon shopper. “The sound is loud and clear. Now I am able to hear all online stations with no interference. The design is space-saving, with rubber underneath to prevent sliding.”
The older Echo Dot (third generation)—with a flatter design—is also sale, down to just 25 bucks. It’s back in stock on January 5, but you can order now to take advantage of the low sale price. It doesn’t have the room-filling audio of the gen-4 model, but has the same capabilities otherwise.
Amazon has one of its bestselling TVs—the Insignia 39-inch Smart HD TV—Fire TV Edition on sale for $170 right now. This is the all-time lowest price we’ve seen for this model. Equipped with a Standard HD resolution of 720p, it’s the perfect size for a small space. And it lets you stream movies and shows from Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, and more without adding a separate device.
“This TV is exactly what I wanted for my office,” raved a delighted five-star reviewer. “It is small in size, but big on picture quality and sound. It was easy to set up, just like my other Fire TVs; and, easy to use with voice- or remote-control. I have had no issues using the TV with Amazon Prime and all of the other apps I installed to stream television, movies and music.”
Save 50 percent on the Echo Show 5
On sale for $45—down from $90—the Echo Show 5 has a compact, crisp five-inch smart-home display, so it’s perfect for a nightstand. This display can double as a digital alarm clock, with Alexa built-in. Amazon has a wide range of personalized clock faces to choose from, so you can bring a bit of personality to your space. The price is amazing—now’s your chance.
“This is the best alarm clock I’ve ever had,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “The clock face is customizable and very easy to read from anywhere in the room. The screen has no distortion or discoloration…Perfect for checking the time in the middle of the night.”
Save $30 on the Echo Auto, for Alexa in the car
If you’ve ever found yourself calling out to Alexa in your car, only to realize she’s not there, have we got a device for you—on sale for less than half its original price. The Echo Auto is a clever little gizmo that connects to your vehicle’s stereo and pairs to your phone. Then you can talk to Alexa just like at home. Right now it’s down from $50 to just $20.
No worries about the engine, wind, or traffic getting in the way of your voice. The Echo Auto is designed with eight mighty microphones, so it can clearly pick up voice commands. It’s absolutely genius for making hands-free phone calls and summoning your favorite driving tunes on Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, and more.
“I’m impressed with this little device. I’ve tried other car Alexa-enabled devices but they’ve always struggled to pick up my voice over noise such as the radio, a window being down, or other people chatting in the car,” said a five-star Amazon reviewer. “[This device] always picks up my voice no matter the sound level.”
