Black Friday deals at Amazon have already gotten pretty crazy — but prices don't get much lower than this. 

Amazon is offering a special deal for Prime Members this Black Friday. You can grab an Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) for $1 at Amazon (opens in new tab) via coupon code "PRIMEANNIV". (Enter the coupon during checkout). The deal is valid through November 16 at 11:59 p.m. (PT). However, you must have either received an email from Amazon about the promotion or seen display adverts on Amazon.com after logging into your account.

Prime member deal: The Echo Dot 3rd Gen is one of our favorite smart speakers. Currently, select Prime members can get the Echo Dot for just $1 via coupon code "PRIMEANNIV". (Amazon states that you must have received this promotion through email or advertising on Amazon's website to be eligible). The coupon must be entered during the final checkout stage. This is one of the best Black Friday deals we've seen this year.

This is a promotion you can only take advantage of if you've received info about it directly from Amazon. So, remember to check your inbox for an email about it or check the adverts on the Amazon website home page before you head to checkout. (That said, we didn't receive the promo and we're still able to use the coupon. So your mileage may vary). 

Despite being a few years old, the Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) is still one of the best smart speakers we've tested. Don't be fooled by its small size — this smart speaker delivers excellent audio with full bass, and sound profiles can even be tweaked to your preference.

This is an Alexa device, so you'll also be able to use the Echo Dot to make calls, set timers, listen to the news and control your other smart devices. All in all, this device is an incredible deal at just $1.

There are more deals just like this one happening at retailers across the internet right now, so stay tuned to our Black Friday deals coverage to avoid missing out.
