New Echos on the horizon, so Amazon is clearing out some inventory.

Is this deal for me?

Amazon announced an all-new lineup of Echo devices recently, and as expected we are now seeing some great deals on the original. Right now you can pick up the first-generation Amazon Echo for $79.99 at Woot. The smart speaker itself is selling for $74.99, but Woot charges an unavoidable $5 shipping fee, so it's easier to think of the item cost just being $79.99.

This is the same price as a refurbished version, but this offer from Woot is brand new. Both Black and White are in stock at this price. There is a limit of three per customer.

With the Amazon Echo, you can not only play your favorite tunes through the great-sounding speaker, but also control your smart home gadgets, find answers to your questions, and much more. If you've been on the edge about trying an Echo, this deal may be the one that finally pushes you over the edge and makes you try it.

You'll get a 1-year warranty on the Echo, and Woot offers a 30-day return policy.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - The Amazon Echo used to be Amazon's flagship echo device. It's still a great way to gain access to Alexa, which includes exclusive voice-only deals. This price is also a match for the lowest we've seen.
  • Things to know before you buy! - There is a whole new lineup of Echo devices these days that you might not know about. Amazon has a lot of other deals going on right now, too, including a deal with Audible and discounts on Kindles.

Happy thrifting!
