Killer Deal: Get an Echo Dot for $2 (Update: It’s Over for Now)

Update Nov. 20 at 9:20am ET: After multiple readers reported that the coupon has expired, we have confirmed that this deal no longer works. The deal was only valid with the Charcoal-colored Echo Dot, which is now out of stock.

There remains the possibility that deal may reactivate when the Charcoal Echo Dot comes back in stock. New subscribers can still get 3 months of Music Unlimited for $0.99.

In the meantime, check out the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals you can shop now.
