For a limited time, Best Buy is offering the Philips iDevice speaker dock with alarm clock & FM radio on clearance for only $20 with free shipping.  Most retailers are charging upwards of $70 for this speaker dock.  The next lowest price we could find was $45 for a refurbished unit, while Amazon is charging $67 for new condition.  Amazon reviewers give this dock 3 stars, a decent enough rating for a low cost, name-brand speaker dock.

This Philips clock radio features an Apple iPod and iPhone docking station, so you can charge your device and listen to your favorite songs simultaneously. The dual alarm feature allows 2 alarm configurations to be set to different times.

Those with Lightning iDevices will need to pick up an adapter which start at $3 and go up to $25 for Apple’s (comically more than this whole alarm clock/speaker).
