Amazon’s 99-cent Echo Dot deal is back – CNET


Yours for 99 cents when you sign up for at least one month of Amazon Music Unlimited.


Proof positive that Amazon is willing to more or less give away Echo Dot smart speakers, the company just resurrected a popular deal from last year: You can once again get a 3rd-generation Echo Dot for 99 cents when you sign up for one month of Amazon Music Unlimited. If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, that makes your total out-of-pocket cost just $8.98. For non-subscribers: $10.98. Just make sure you follow the necessary instructions below. 

This offer is for new Music Unlimited subscribers only, though if you’ve been a subscriber (or done a trial) in the past, you may still be able to take advantage of it.

The last time Amazon ran this deal, I heard from Twitter followers that it was difficult to access via the Amazon mobile app. Your mileage may vary. For the record, I did my purchase via desktop browser.

Music Unlimited is, of course, Amazon’s answer to Spotify. It normally runs $9.99 per month for an individual user, or $7.99 per month for Prime subscribers. After your first month, you’ll continue to get billed at that rate unless you cancel, which you’re free to do at any time.

As for the Echo Dot, it’s the third-gen model, though not the one with the clock. But it’s still a nice-sounding, versatile smart speaker, one that lists for $50 (though, let’s be honest, it’s nearly always on sale for $30).
