How to find Amazon’s hidden deal that gets you an Echo Dot for $5

The beloved Echo Dot goes on sale all the time, which is surely at least a big part of the reason why it’s the single best-seller Alexa smart speaker Amazon has ever made. It’s already quite reasonable at $50, but frequent discounts chop that already affordable price even lower. For example, Amazon is running sales right now that get you the $50 4th-gen Echo Dot for $29.99 or the $60 Echo Dot with Clock to $39.99. That said, Amazon’s current sales don’t offer discounts anywhere near the one in the special hidden deal Amazon is running right now on the previous-generation model. Hurry up and you can get an Echo Dot smart speaker for just $4.99 when you also get 1 month of Amazon Music Unlimited service. That’s right, folks — a Dot for $5! Right now on its site, Amazon is offering the Echo Dot for just $4.99 when bundled with 1 month of its Amazon Music Unlimited service, which costs $7.99 per month for Prime members. That’s a total of $12.98! It’s important to note that the AMU subscription will automatically renew each month, of course, and if you like it you can keep it and ditch Spotify or Apple Music. Or, if you’d rather stick with what you know, that’s okay too — just go to this page anytime after you place your order and you can cancel Amazon Music Unlimited. You can literally do it the instant after you place the order and you won’t have to worry about getting charged again, but you’ll still get to keep streaming for the rest of the month, and you’ll get a $4.99 Echo Dot! The only caveat is that this deal is available only to Amazon customers who have never subscribed to Amazon Music Unlimited before. There’s no telling when the deal will disappear though, so hurry or you might miss it. You can see the terms and conditions for this deal right here on Amazon’s site.
