Acer’s Alexa-equipped laptops come with a free Echo Dot

Acer Nitro 5

Who said you have to wait until Prime Day 2020 for some sweet laptop deals? Acer is rolling out early discounts on its Alexa-equipped laptops and even throwing in a free Echo Spot for good measure.

Acer has slashed $50 off all its Alexa-equipped laptops including the Acer Nitro 5 Spin, Acer Spin 5 and Acer Aspire. On top of the slight discount, Acer is also throwing in a free Echo Dot speaker plus an optional four months of Amazon Music for only $0.99 – the subscription will return to its regular $7.99 price on the fifth month of service.

Here’s a quick look at the discounted laptops and their reduced prices:

The only catch about these deals is you have to be an Amazon Prime member, but luckily you can just sign up for Prime's trial period in case you don't have a subscription yet. Keep in mind you’ll have to pay $119 a year if you choose not to cancel the subscription before the trial is over.
