For some reason, Amazon loves bundling its Echo speakers. Sometimes you can get an Echo Dot for free with the purchase of something else; at other times, Amazon flips the script and throws something in with the purchase of an Echo. That’s what’s going on right now — you can get the new, which is a savings of $50 off the price of those items separately.
The new sphere-shaped Echo is a noticeable upgrade from the previous generation of Echo speakers.

The good news is that you’re not limited to any particular colors with this deal — you can get the Echo in charcoal, white, red or blue, and Amazon will throw in a pair of Philips Hue bulbs. This deal comes and goes, but right now it’s about $10 less than usual, and only $10 more than its all-time low of $70.
