As part of Amazon’s Deal of the Day promo, they’re knocking almost thirty bucks off the Amazon Echo. Now you can have all the benefits of Alexa at your fingertips for only $153.71. This isn’t the lowest that we’ve seen this home personal assistant go ($149.00), but it’s damn close.

For those not in the know the Amazon Echo essentially aims to be the hub of even the most rudimentary smart home. It can play music from Prime Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and other streaming services in immersive omni-directional audio. Voice controlled, you can ask its AI inhabitant Alexa questions on the fly, and she can even control lights, thermostats, and security systems through integration with smart home services like Nest and ecobee. Order Domino’s, call an Uber driver… all on the fly by just speaking the words aloud. It’s pretty magical.
