Best Echo Dot Deals Buy one, get one free

Best Echo Deals $79.99

The Echo is essentially a taller, louder Echo Dot. There are seven microphones and beamforming technology, meaning the device will hear you even over loud music, which is an area where the Echo Dot can fall short. It also features dual speakers, which is another feature the Echo Dot lacks.
