expiredAmazon slashes 70% off Echo Input, now just $10 Prime shipped

Amazon is offering its Echo Input for $9.99 Prime shipped. If you are not a Prime member, orders that exceed $25 will qualify for free shipping. That’s $25 off the typical rate there and beats the lowest price we have tracked by $5. For those unfamiliar with Echo Input, its main draw is its ability to smarten up standard or aging speakers in your home. Simply plug it in to a speaker, sound bar, or any output device with a 3.5mm port and you’ll be able to control it with Alexa. This also will make multi-room playback possible across it and all of your other Echo devices. I use multi-room playback with the Apple Music skill every single day. Rated 4.1/5 stars.
