Amazon's Celebrating The Echo's 2nd Birthday With a Rare $40 Discount

Haven’t you heard? The Amazon Echo is actually really great (and only getting better over time), and you can save $40 on yours, today only. In addition to being a pretty solid Bluetooth speaker, the Echo can check the weather, turn on your lights, read you the news, trigger custom IFTTT recipes, order food, and—my personal favorite—read you Jeopardy questions like a robotic Alex Trebek. You might be thinking that you’ll wait and see if there’s a better deal on the Echo on Black Friday. But we suspect that Amazon will be offering several high-profile deals during Deals Week that you can only order via Alexa, in which case you’ll really want to have your Echo set up and ready to go before you finish eating your turkey. $140 From amazon 9540 purchased by readers Gizmodo Media Group may get a commission $140 From amazon Gizmodo Media Group may get a commission Commerce Content is independent of Editorial and Advertising, and if you buy something through our posts, we may get a small share of the sale.
