The Echo Dot with Clock is one of Amazon's newest additions to its Echo line and only started shipping on October 16. At just $39.99, it's $20 off and down to the lowest price we've seen for it yet. This model is great for a nightstand, desk, or anywhere else you may want to quickly glance down and see what time it is. In addition to displaying the time, the Echo Dot can also show the temperature outside or your current timers, which makes it very useful for even more situations.

Of course, the Echo Dot also gives you access to Alexa's vast library of smart features, like the ability to control smart home products, play music from Apple Music, Spotify, and more, as well as answer your questions, set timers, and just about anything else you can think of. You can even bundle it with a TP-Link smart plug or a LIFX smart bulb for just $5 more if you want to use it to kickstart your smart home.

If you don't need the clock functionality, the regular 3rd-gen Echo Dot is also $20 off at $29.99. We have a handy comparison of the Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock to help you choose between them if you're unsure.

Think of the children

Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition

Alexa can read your child stories, play their favorite songs, and answer every single repetitive question they have without a hint of annoyance in her robotic voice. How sweet. It also comes with a two-year worry-free warranty.

Another recently-released Echo Dot device on sale is the updated Echo Dot Kids Edition. It regularly sells for $69.99, but today you can snag one for only $49.99 in either Blue or Rainbow styles. That's only $5 more than it was priced during Amazon's huge Prime Day sale which was only available for Amazon Prime members. Unlike that deal, today's offer is available to everyone. An entire year of FreeTime Unlimited is also included with your purchase, which gives your child access to age-appropriate books, music, games, cartoons, audiobooks, and more, some of which can be accessed using the Echo Dot.

Kids will love the Echo Dot, and they'll likely take to it quicker than most adults too. With a few words, they can have Alexa playing their favorite songs, telling them stories, calling approved family members or friends, and more. With built-in parental controls, you can set daily time limits and review your child's activity, and there's also a Microphone Off button to mute the microphone if that's something you're concerned about. It's backed by a two-year worry-free guarantee meaning if it breaks, you can return it and have it replaced for free.
