As is customary for Amazon in the run up to Black Friday, the retailer has slashed the prices of several of its own products. For 2019, that includes a pretty hefty discount on the newest member of the Echo family: the Echo Dot with Clock. 

However, the speaker's absolutely flown off the stock shelves, which has seen its estimated delivery date pushed to 28 December at present. Luckily, a few ways have emerged to get around this, including buying with Prime Now, Amazon's super-fast delivery option, if you live in an eligible area.

That option still has you able to get an Echo Dot with Clock for delivery today. Of course, there are also other retailers matching Amazon's discount, so you could well pick it up at the same great price elsewhere.

One of the biggest draws of the all new Echo Dot is that simple LED clock on the outside, visible through the fabric layer. In every other way, it's the 3rd gen Echo Dot that you know and love. 

Like the standard Echo Dot, it's a small, compact smart home speaker with a 3.5mm output on the back, allowing you to hook it up to external speakers if the Echo Dot's own audio isn't quite hot enough for you. 

It's one of our favourite smart home speakers to date, thanks to its price, features and the versatility of Amazon's smart home integrations. It's small enough to fit anywhere, and useful enough to make the upfront cost more than worth. Especially now that it's even cheaper. 

If you want to save even more money and aren't overly fussed by the LED clock on the outside, you can also pick up the 3rd gen Echo Dot at a low price too. 

The previous Echo Dot - the 3rd gen model without a clock - has been discounted as well, and is now down to just £22. Which is, quite frankly, ridiculous. You can see that offer on Amazon
