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.

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.
