Amazon's third-gen Echo Dot is crazy cheap for new Music Unlimited subscribers
Just because Amazon managed to vastly improve its global smart speaker sales during a three-month period that saw Google's shipment numbers and market share plummet compared to the same timeframe last year, that doesn't mean the e-commerce giant is ready to rest on its laurels and risk a resurgence from its arch-rival.

While Big G is trying to boost its "sales" figures by giving away free Nest Minis for Google Fi customers with absolutely no strings attached, Amazon is once again selling the third-generation Echo Dot at an essentially unbeatable price in a combination with a Music Unlimited subscription. The diminutive Alexa-powered smart speaker, released a little over a year ago, normally costs $49.99 by itself.

Meanwhile, a 30-day Amazon Music Unlimited pass would typically set you back $9.99. There's also a permanent deal bringing that monthly fee down to $7.99 for Prime members, but a no doubt limited-time offer lets you score the latest Echo Dot model at a whopping $49 discount alongside the aforementioned 1-month subscription to Amazon's Spotify and Apple Music-rivaling service.

That basically means you get the popular third-gen Amazon Echo Dot for $0.99 if you simply agree to pay the normal price for Music Unlimited access with or without a Prime membership. Unsurprisingly, you can't claim this incredible bundle deal if you've tried Amazon's music streaming platform before or if you've claimed the same combo last time it was up for grabs at this crazy low price.

You'll also have to agree to an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription with the Auto-renewal option enabled right off the bat, although cancelling your streaming service membership is allowed at any point. If you don't do that, you will continue to pay $9.99 a month or $7.99 if you also have an active Amazon Prime subscription. The 2018-released Echo Dot is available at the huge aforementioned discount in your choice of Sandstone, Charcoal, and Heather Grey colors, but not Plum.

Of course, that $49 price cut will feel a little less drastic if you take into consideration the fact that the newest Echo Dot variant is on sale by itself as well at $25 off list in all four hues available.
