Amazon has kicked off its Black Friday 2021 festivities early, with thousands of products already reduced and savings off up to 40 percent available to bargain hunters. Out of this enormous range of money-saving discounts, there is already one standout deal – Amazon UK is currently running a two-for-one promotion on its Echo Dot smart speakers.
This diddy smart speaker is powered by Amazon’s clever Alexa assistant, which can read-out the latest forecasts and headlines, control smart lights, order a takeaway, check the traffic and local cinema times, play songs from Spotify or Apple Music, and much more. While it usually costs £39.99 for an Echo Dot, you won’t have to pay a penny for one of these speakers.
That’s because shoppers can claim an Echo Dot for free when they purchase one. Right now, a pair of Echo Dot speakers can be picked up for just £37.98 – which is also a saving on the typical RRP of a single Echo Dot device (£39.99).
To get two Echo Dot speakers for the price of one Amazon shoppers need to enter the ECHODOT2FOR1 promo code at checkout.
If you like the sound of this deal – and honestly who wouldn’t – then there’s a few Ts and Cs you need to be aware of. First up, this two pack offer is limited to one per customer.
The Echo Dots products must also be purchased in a single order and delivered at the same speed to the same address. The offer also only applies to products sold by Amazon via www.amazon.co.uk. So that means it won’t apply to any bargain Echo Dot deals sold via Amazon Warehouse, or any marketplace purchases.
This deal is also only available on the third-generation Echo Dots – not the newer, redesigned fourth generation speakers, which boasts a ball-like design.
Besides offering access to Amazon’s iconic Alexa voice assistant, the Echo Dot devices can also stream music via Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music and also take calls, plus much more.
These features mean the second Echo Dot device that is available free right now could come in really handy, and gives you an extra room to be in where you can call upon Alexa’s many helpful skills.
Once you get your shiny new Echo Dot devices through the post it will also help you prepare for the Black Friday sale season.
That’s because you can ask Alexa for a hand in helping to bag a bargain.
As Amazon explained as they kicked off their early Black Friday deals this week: “Customers can start browsing deals by simply asking, ‘Alexa, what are my deals?’. Shoppers can also use AmazonSmile in the Amazon App to find the same amazing deals and Amazon shopping experience, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price of eligible products to a charity of their choice.”
While Amazon is offering discounts of up to 40 percent off across every category, on Amazon Devices shoppers can bag a bargain of up to 45 percent.
Deals are currently running on popular devices such as the Kindle Paperwhite e-reader and Echo Show 5 smart display.
