Second-gen Amazon Echo hits new all-time low price in Prime deal of the day

Second-gen Amazon Echo hits new all-time low price in Prime deal of the day
While Amazon never advertised a full month of "doorbuster savings on top brands", like eBay did when announcing plans to "crash" the e-commerce giant's 48-hour Prime Day deal extravaganza, we always suspected the big discounts would kick off much earlier than July 15.

It's therefore not that surprising to see the second-gen Echo marked down by a massive $50 already for Amazon Prime members mere days after the popular LG Stylo 4 smartphone scored an outright colossal $140 discount. That equates to a full 50 percent off Amazon's extremely well-reviewed smart speaker in its second "standard" incarnation, which also represents the lowest price point this Alexa-enabled device has ever hit.
In addition to the Prime membership requirement, another very important detail you need to consider here is that you're looking at an Amazon "deal of the day", which means you don't have a lot of time to act before the Echo (2nd Generation) will jump back up in price to 70 or 100 bucks. Available in a stylish fabric design and three different colors (charcoal, gray, and sandstone), this particular version of the crazy popular Echo doesn't come with either a touchscreen or a built-in smart home hub.

But you do get access to every single (non-visual) trick up Alexa's sleeve, from music streaming to alarms and timers, answers to all your questions, smart home controls (with a separate hub), Skype calling, weather info, news updates, shopping list management, and so much more, all without ever having to lift a finger and touching the device. Whether or not you consider Google Assistant superior to Amazon's AI-powered voice assistant, that's some phenomenal bang for your buck that the Google Home can't usually compete with.

Had a google home mini and I don’t need smart features. I wonder how the sound is on this. I pretty much just need a Bluetooth speaker.
