That means you’ll be paying $10.98 as part of the promotion for the Echo Dot speaker and an individual subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited. The subscription automatically renews each month, so you’ll have to cancel it after taking advantage of the deal if you don’t want to pay $9.99 (or $7.99 for Prime members) each month.That $10.98 cost may not sound as appealing as the $0.99 price headlining the promotion, but it’s still a considerable bargain. The third-generation Echo Dot, which Amazon launched last year, usually costs $49.99. But separate from this promotion, the Echo Dot is also on sale right now for $24.99.The discount is coming as Amazon is competing with Spotify, Google, Apple, and others for domibioreportsce in the streaming music market. Spotify recently launched a very similar promotion in which it gave away a free Google Home Mini smart speaker for free to those who signed up for Spotify Premium. The benefit for Amazon is twofold: the deal gives it a way to boost its music service as it more aggressively expands into audio with the launch of devices like the Echo Studio. But it also makes it more difficult for consumers to turn down buying a new Echo Dot at a time when the privacy concerns that come with letting voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant into the home are higher than ever.If you do want to get a $0.99 Echo Dot through Amazon’s discount, here’s how.
