Macy's will let you save a whopping $60 with the purchase of two Amazon Echo Dot units

Macy's will let you save a whopping $60 with the purchase of two Amazon Echo Dot units
Amazon's third-generation Echo Dot is not typically very pricey, fetching $49.99 with essentially the same smart features in tow as the "standard" $100 second-gen Echo. But for a limited time, Amazon's diminutive smart speaker can be purchased at a massive 40 percent discount. Even better, new Amazon Prime Student members have recently been able to get the voice-controlled device for an insanely affordable $4.99.

Meanwhile, the latest two-for-one deal from a third-party retailer is not quite as great, but you're still looking at saving a lot of money and spending very little on a couple of Echo Dots in your paint jobs of choice. Macy's (of all stores) has the Alexa-powered smart speaker listed at a marked-down price of $29.99, which you can lower even further if you add two units to your e-cart.

Specifically, an extra 20 bucks will be shaved off the combined price, which means you'll ultimately have to pay just $39.98 for your Echo Dot two-pack. That makes this killer deal better than your typical BOGO (buy-one-get-one-free) arrangement, as your two devices will be cheaper than a single unit outside promotional periods. Speaking of, you only have until tomorrow, June 8, to visit the official Macy's website and order your two third-gen Amazon Echo Dot units at a total discount of 60 bucks. 

Three color options are available (grey, charcoal, and sandstone), which you can mix and match however you want, while nationwide shipping is free for orders exceeding $75. Alternatively, you can dodge the standard $10.95 delivery fee by opting for in-store pickup... where available. 

Clearly, Amazon and an increasing number of third-party retailers are taking the Google threat more seriously than ever in today's competitive smart speaker landscape, pulling out all the stops to halt the rapid expansion of the search giant's Home Mini model.
