Who doesn’t want to make their life easier this month? After all the holiday shopping, we could all use a virtual butler to turn on the lights and play music on command. If that sounds like Alexa — many techies’ favorite voice assistant — you’re right. And you’re right on time.
Thanks to our December Deal of the Day, you can get a refurbished Amazon Echo Dot for just $18.99. Act fast, though. When we say Deal of the Day, we mean today only — the discount ends after 24 hours.
A hands-free assistant with a built-in speaker
The model that’s up for grabs is the 2016 version of the Dot, which is just as useful today as when it was released. Users and tech sites alike lauded this smart speaker (it earned 4.5 stars on TechRadar) for its discreet size, outstanding voice recognition and support for a wide range of devices.
If you haven’t used the Echo Dot before, it’s easy to set up and even easier to start using. You can pair it to your existing audio equipment, smart plugs or other devices using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or the included audio cable. After that, there are no buttons to press. With a simple “Alexa,” you can command your speakers to play your favorite podcasts and playlists, buy items through your Amazon account or schedule an Uber to take you Christmas shopping.
This Echo Dot is refurbished by EMB Phones, a certified reseller, and it comes in near-mint condition. That means you’ll see few signs of use, if any. So not only can you enjoy all that functionality at a fraction of the original price, but you also can reduce your carbon footprint.
