Black Friday is almost here and Amazon is already discounting a ton of its own devices. That also includes its Echo Dot + Smart Plug bundle (opens in new tab) which is down to just $26.99 today. The non-sale price for the newest Echo Dot alone (opens in new tab) is $50 and Amazon's Smart Plug (opens in new tab) is worth $25, so you're saving almost $50 all told. The discount is only available for a limited time and won't be matched for a long time after this year's Black Friday sale.

With Black Friday pricing hitting a bunch of Amazon Echo devices, you can now score the super-popular Echo Dot with an Amazon Smart Plug for just $5 extra. Use it to add voice control to a dumb appliance, set schedules, and more.

The latest Echo Dot offers up to 70% better audio quality over its predecessor when listening to music, has a stylish new design, and is available in Charcoal, Heather Gray, Sandstone, and Plum options. You can pair two of them together for stereo sound, or connect it via Bluetooth (or 3.5mm cable) directly to another speaker that you prefer. Use it to control your smart thermostat (opens in new tab), smart lights (opens in new tab), and other smart home gear (opens in new tab), have measurements converted, find out the local weather, catch up on news, set timers, and more.

With the Echo Dot you can use your voice to control your included Smart Plug and whatever appliance is connected to it, bringing your dumb devices into your smart home too. The plug can also be controlled remotely when you're away from home and be used to set schedules.

The deal is available on all three colors of Echo Dot right now but this sale won't last forever, so get your order in while you can.
