If you want a compact and reliable Bluetooth speaker that’ll stream as much music as your heart desires, check out this Echo Dot and Amazon Music Unlimited sale.

Amazon has the Echo Dot (third generation) on sale for only $5, or a massive $35 off its list price. That’s a nearly 90 percent savings and the all-time lowest price (by far) for the retail giant's super-popular smart speaker. How popular? So popular that it has earned a perfect five-star rating from more than 919,500 reviewers. That's two italicized words in one paragraph —can you tell we're excited about this?

Now, this incredible deal only applies when you sign up for one month of Amazon Music Unlimited, which goes for $10 per month (or $8 for Prime members). But you don’t have to agree to a long-term contract; in fact, you can cancel anytime within 30 days. (Sorry, first-time subscribers to the music service only.)

That means you can snag an Echo Dot and one month of Amazon Music Unlimited for just $15 (or $13 for Prime members), altogether. That’s a great deal for one of the best smart-home hubs and music streaming services around.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Amazon Music Unlimited

Amazon Music Unlimited is the online retailer’s ad-free music subscription service. It features access to more than 70 million songs from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Cheap Trick, Mitski, Pavement, Fleetwood Mac, Run The Jewels, St. Vincent, Kendrick Lamar, Dolly Parton, Neutral Milk Hotel and much, much more. You can even listen offline without an internet connection on your phone or laptop with the mobile app.

The Echo Dot can connect to other music streaming services too, including Apple Music, Spotify and Sirius XM via your smartphone.

Echo Dot (third generation)

The Echo Dot features a small but mighty speaker. Pair it with another Echo Dot to create amazing stereo sound in your home for less than what it would cost for just one Bluetooth speaker from Bose or Sonos. And Alexa is included, so you can always get the latest news, weather and sports updates with just a simple vocal request. You can control other smart home devices, too.

Privacy concerns? The Echo Dot is built with multiple layers of protection, such as a physical button that turns off its microphone and disconnects it from your home Wi-Fi network.

"The sound quality is great," raved a five-star Amazon reviewer. "I was really surprised by how much sound comes out of this little device. I am hard of hearing and wear hearing aids, and I am very pleased with the sound."

You heard us!

At just $15 (was $50), this is a can’t-miss deal with all the benefits of the Echo Dot and continuous music streaming options of Amazon Music Unlimited.
