Update: The 2nd generation Echo is now available for $85 (Reg. $100) as well.

Amazon offers the second generation Echo Dot in both colors for $39.99 shipped. Also at Best Buy and Target. That’s a 20% off the regular going rate, a match off our previous mention and the lowest price that we can find. This is a nice way to jump into the world of Alexa at just $40. Rated 4.3/5 stars.

Echo Dot features:

Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker—it can also connect to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or through a 3.5 mm audio cable to deliver stereo sound to the speakers you choose. Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more—instantly. Echo Dot can hear you from across the room, even while music is playing. When you want to use Echo Dot, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Dot responds instantly.
