If you've been after an Echo, then there's no better option than this top offer - as the 3rd generation Dot is now available with 40% slashed off the price at just $29.99 on Amazon US and £29.99 on Amazon UK.

The Echo Dot usually costs $49.99/£49.99 and is the most compact and cheapest way to bring two Alexa devices to rooms in your house, and now with a $20 and £20 saving. However, stock availability has been patchy over Christmas and New Year with several weeks of delays on orders - with the US dot in stock on the first week of March, and UK, first week of February.  

This generation does have a much improved speaker, while it can also be connected to existing speakers you have via a 3.5mm cable or Bluetooth. If you haven't dabbled with Alexa, the Echo Dot is a great way to get started. 

Amazon's Dot is just one of the great discounts that it has offered on its devices of late, with the Spot, Show and regular Echo all getting discounted. There could well be more coming soon. 

You can also check out some of the brand's other deals, such as getting 50 percent of Audible for 3 months - at only £3.99 instead of £7.99 a month.
