The Amazon Echo Dot (3rd gen) is back down to just £18.99 (was £39.99) today at Amazon - a return to its cheapest price ever and the best we've seen this year.

Yep, today's price at Amazon is even cheaper than over Black Friday. You'll have to hurry if you want to bag one of these great little smart speakers by Christmas, however, they're currently back-ordered all the way until December 16th by the earliest.

While a little bit older, the 3rd gen Amazon Echo Dot is still a really good addition to any smart home setup if you're looking for something cheap and cheerful. It's got the same 1.8-inch speaker as the latest 4th Gen model (retailing for £49 currently) and works just as well when it comes to Alexa voice commands. It doesn't quite have as eye-catching of a design as the new one, but it's still great for playing tunes, controlling your smart home appliances, and answering questions.

Also, if you fancy the idea of linking two Echo Dots together for stereo sound, you can currently get two for just £29.99 when you use the code 2ECHODOT at checkout. This promo is a hold-out from Black Friday and a really great option if you're looking to get better coverage throughout your house. Using this promo, you'll save an additional £6 in total versus the standalone sales price and it's definitely not a bad shout as it'll put you over that £20 free delivery threshold if you're not a prime member.
