I mean, can you imagine the deals we're going to see on Prime Day if Amazon's already matching its Black Friday prices now?! Grab the 3rd-generation Echo Dot in Charcoal, Heather Gray, or Sandstone fabric colors for $24.99. The smart speaker's regular price is $50 but it has been selling for around $30 since May, the last time we talked about it. The drop to $24.99 is significant because it hasn't been this low since Black Friday and it did not last long at that price.

Amazon Echo Dot 3rd-generation Alexa-enabled smart speaker Prime Day

It hasn't dropped this low since Black Friday, and that bodes well for the deals we're going to see coming up for Prime Day.

$24.99 $50.00 $25 off

Compared to the 2nd-gen speaker, the Echo Dot has 70% better audio quality and an improved design. 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. With the Echo Dot you can control your smart thermostat, smart plug, and other smart home gear, as well as have measurements converted, find out the local weather, and more.

This is obviously to get you ready for Prime Day. In fact, you'll want an Echo Dot because you'll be able to talk to Alexa about her exclusive deals when the big day comes.
