Amazon usually sells certified refurbished Echo Dots for $5 less than new models, but for now at least, that discount has increased to $12.

Launched under Anker’s home brand, Eufy, the Genie smart speaker starts at $35- the lowest price so far on Amazon’s analog, the Dot, but today the barrier to entry to the Alexa ecosystem gets even lower at just 30 bucks. Even better, new subscribers to Amazon Music Unlimited get three months free with their Genie…
With its 24 hour battery life, iumpressive bass, and crystal clear sound quality, the Anker SoundCore has long been our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker. But its run may be at an end, because Anker just upgraded it with IPX5 water resistance, and you can get the new model for an all-time low $34 today…
Years later the Sonos PLAYBAR is still the best sound bar for most people, and still just as rarely discounted. Take advantage of this opportunity to snag a free $40 gift card and six months of Music Unlimited if you’ve been in the market for one. I’ve loved mine since 2013.
