Amazon Echo Dot – Certified Refurbished Available for 24% Off

Amazon Echo Dot
“Alexa, help me find some savings…”

While we have gotten a lot of use out of our regular Amazon Echo speaker (available certified refurbished at $134.99), it’s understandable that it might not be in the budget for everyone.  However, if you’ve been looking for a chance to get into the smart speaker craze and get a start on your smart home, Amazon is currently offering the second generation Amazon Echo Dot for 24% off its “brand new” offering at $37.99.

The smaller Dot, is a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker – you can also hook it up to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or via a 3.5 mm audio cable for delivering stereo sound to whatever speakers you choose.

Other features include:

  • A Certified Refurbished Echo Dot is refurbished, tested, and certified to look and work like new
  • Echo Dot (2nd Generation) is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, read the news, set alarms, read audiobooks from Audible, and more
  • Connects to speakers or headphones through Bluetooth or 3.5 mm stereo cable to play music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn
  • Introducing Alexa calling and messaging, a new way to be together with family and friends. Just ask Alexa to call or message anyone with an Echo, Echo Dot, or the Alexa App.
  • Controls lights, fans, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, locks, and more with compatible connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, ecobee, and others

Giveaway – Free Hello Fresh Meals!

Hello Fresh
Hello Free!

As I had made mention in an earlier post, grocery home delivery is starting to pick up in popularity, as evidenced by major retailer Meijer recognizing this, as well as the availability of Amazon Fresh available in select markets.  We thought we would give Hello Fresh a try.

Well, not too long ago, we thought we might try this out as well, and chose HelloFresh to start with.  Needless to say, the meals have been quite tasty, including entrees like Crusted Pork Chops with Brussel Sprouts and Cranberries to Tater Chicken Pot Pie as well as Butter Basted Steaks with Spinach.  We’re anxiously awaiting our next delivery this coming Tuesday!  It has certainly helped save time (and money) I’m sure to be able to have everything perfectly portioned out.

That said, I would like to reward readers – I have four freebies that I can send out, where you can try a box for free yourself!  If you are interested, please leave a comment below.  The first eight comments that I receive, I will send the link to for the free box.  Once all emails go out, I will update the post accordingly.  Should you miss out, feel free to use the link on the Opportunities page under Hello Fresh, and still get $40 off your first order!
