Amazon's smallest smart speaker, the Echo Dot 4th generation has been discounted by the tech giant to £34.99 in the UK just in time for Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking to give the gift of Alexa to a loved one this year, you can bag a £15 saving if you snap up this deal. 

While this isn’t the lowest price the smallest Amazon smart speaker has ever sold for, with a 30% saving it's still good value for money. The Amazon Echo Dot 4th generation with Clock has also been discounted to £44.99 from its list price of £59.99. You’re saving 25% off this version. 

Unfortunately, the smart speaker hasn’t been discounted in the US, but you can pick up a bundle featuring the Amazon Echo Dot 4th generation and an Amazon Smart Plug for $59.99, which is a saving of $14.99.

You can also pick up the Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition, which has a cute animal design and comes with a year's access to Amazon Kids+ for free child-friendly audible books for $54.99 - that's a $5 saving on the list price.
