Amazon Echo Dot is an early Black Friday deal

We're just three weeks away from Black Friday 2017 deals in the US, and this Amazon Echo Dot discount clues us in on what we're in for from the retail giant.

Expect to see more temporary price drops on all sorts of Amazon gadgets between now and the official November 24 Black Friday start date. Amazon is known to start a few Black Friday-like deals early, just like this one.

The Jeff Bezos-owned company also wants to cement itself into your home with its own line of smart home gadgets, and sell you on services like Amazon Key. The Echo Dot price drop is a tempting offer to get you hooked on its ever-present ecosystem instead of rivals like the Google Home Mini.

Of course, this $10 price rollback ends one minute before 12am minute tonight (in the Pacific Time Zone, where Amazon is located), so decide if it's deal or no deal on this Dot.
