Having been a lifetime Logitech Harmony user, I can honestly say that is my favorite of all its offerings.

Amazon is currently offering its Echo Smart Speaker for $149.99 shipped, which is good for $30 off the regular price. This deal is also available at Staples, B&H and Home Depot. Although there have been discounts in the past, those have been limited to Amazon Prime members and Amazon credit card holders. Today’s deal is the first across the board sale that we’ve seen available to all.

Since it arrived on the scene about a year ago, Echo has received rave reviews from over 27,000 Amazon customers. We recently reviewed this best-selling smart speaker, calling it a “life-changing” product.

Amazon Echo is a feature packed speaker that is capable of providing “instant” access to information, music, news, traffic sports and more by saying “Hey Alexa…” It is voice-controlled and has a 360-degree omni-directional design for use throughout your home or office. Echo can control your smart home devices (Belkin WeMo, Philips Hue, SmartThings, others) and play music from streaming services like Amazon Prime Music, Pandora, and TuneIn.

Have a Amazon Store Card? You can drop the final price down to $100 with promo code ECHODEAL, plus save another 5% as usual in the form of a statement credit.

Amazon is also set to discount many of its own first-party products, including Kindles, Fire TV and Fire Tablets during Black Friday. See our full coverage here.
