Get An Echo Dot For A Buck… Kinda

For a limited time, Amazon is offering the Echo Dot smarthome device for just 99 cents! The retail price is $49.99, so that’s a $49 discount. You’re probably asking, “what’s the catch?” It’s simple, you need to sign up for Amazon’s Music Unlimited service which costs $7.99 per month. If you add an Echo Dot to your cart and sign up for the service, you’ll be billed $8.98 at checkout.

You are free to cancel the Music Unlimited service immediately effectively giving you an Echo Dot for 9 bucks. However, if you were already contemplating signing up for this service, you are literally getting an Echo Dot for $1. If you’re lukewarm to the idea, you could always try the service for a few months and keep the Echo Dot regardless.
