Amazon’s fifth-generation Echo Dot is on sale at its best price of the year

Are you reading this half asleep? We feel you. The first week after clock spring can be hell, but today’s deal can help you adjust a little easier. This is because right now you can buy Amazon’s latest Echo Dot with LED display for $44.99 ($15 off) at Amazon, Best Buy and Target. The model without the LED display, meanwhile, is on sale at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target for just $34.99 ($15 off).

As an Alexa-enabled smart speaker, the fifth-generation Echo Dot is a versatile gadget. You can use it to set alarms to help you wake up, and it comes with a handful of perks that the average alarm clock lacks. This includes a temperature sensor capable of triggering Alexa routines, which lets you program the smart speaker to turn on your heater when it’s too cool or perform a variety of other automated tasks. You can also use it to control other smart home devices and boost your internet coverage if you’re on an Eero network, helping to add up to 1,000 square feet of coverage to your existing Wi-Fi setup.

The fifth-generation Echo Dot touts a temperature sensor, better sound, and faster response time than the previous model. It can also act as an extender for your Eero Wi-Fi system.

Speaking of Eero devices, Wellbots is taking 20 percent off the latest Eero release Eero 6 Plus routers from now until March 20th when you use the promo code EEROVERGE at the checkout. Amazon also offers the same discount to Prime members, matching some of the best prices we’ve seen on mesh Wi-Fi routers this year.

If you’ve never used Eero’s dual-band system before, it’s easy to set up and supports fast gigabit speeds as well as over 75 simultaneously connected devices on its network. The Eero 6 Plus also has a built-in smart home hub so you can use Amazon Alexa to control Zigbee and Thread compatible devices. (Hardware support is also on the way.) That said, the extent of Wi-Fi coverage you get will depend on how many routers you buy.

If you live in a larger apartment or house and need more coverage, you can pick up a pair of Eero 6 Plus routers for $191.99 ($48 off) at Amazon or Wellbots, which should accommodate up to 3,000 square feet of space. You can also pick up a three-pack for $239.99 ($60 off) from Amazon and Wellbots, which allows up to 4,500 square feet of coverage, or a single router at Amazon and Wellbots for $111.99 ($28 discount), which will be sufficient for up to 1,500 square feet.


The Eero 6 Plus is a dual-band gigabit system that supports more than 75 devices connected simultaneously. It’s currently on sale at Amazon (for Prime members) and Wellbots when you use a promo code EEROVERGE at the checkout.

If you failed to receive it Second generation AirPods when they went live a few weeks ago, it looks like you’ll get another chance. Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart are once again offering Apple’s latest AirPods Pro for an all-time low of $199.99 ($50 off).

Apple’s newest noise-canceling headphones remain our top pick for iPhone owners, given how well they integrate with other Apple devices. They also offer better noise cancellation and sound quality than the previous model, along with scan-based controls and an extra very small pair of replaceable ear tips. In addition, the MagSafe-ready charging case now has a built-in speaker and support for Apple’s extensive Find My network, which allows you to recover the headphones more easily if they are lost while in the case.

For those who don’t like the feeling of headphones sitting inside your ear, there’s the OpenRun by Shokzcurrently on sale at Amazon, Best Buy and direct from Shokz for $109.95 ($20 off), one of their best prices to date.

The OpenRun is the successor to the Aftershokz Aeropex, which we found to offer good sound quality and a unique design. Unlike most pairs of headphones, the OpenRun doesn’t cover your ears or sit inside them. Instead, they transmit sound through the bones near your ears. Obviously, their open-ear design means you won’t be able to enjoy noise cancellation or the same level of sound quality as you would with a pair of dedicated headphones, however, you’ll be able to hear traffic and other ambient noises when you’re jogging or cycling in a busy area. Plus, they’re IP67 water resistant, so you won’t have to worry when you inevitably get caught in a downpour on the way home.


Instead of covering your ears or resting in them, the Shokz OpenRun delivers sound through bone conduction, helping you stay present during indoor and outdoor activities.
