Kickstart your smart home with Amazon's 1st-gen Echo Plus smart speaker down to just $50

Getting your smart home set up is fairly affordable these days, but often you end up shelling out not only for smart devices but also for additional hubs to get everything working together. Not with the Amazon Echo Plus (opens in new tab). It has one built-in. The 1st-gen devices are being offered brand new for just $49.99 at Woot for a limited time in black, white, and silver while supplies last. At that price, they cost less than a refurbished model directly at Amazon (opens in new tab), yet you get a brand new product with a 1-year warranty. Shipping is free if you log into Woot's site with your Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) account, otherwise it's an additonal $6.

Not only does it offer all of Alexa's smarts but it also contains a built-in hub for connecting bulbs, thermostats, smart plugs and more. This is the best price we've ever seen on the original Echo Plus in new condition. (opens in new tab)
