Amazon is selling a certified refurbished Amazon Echo for just $134.99, which is $45 off the regular price for the digital assistant.
The Echo, a 37-ounce, cone-shaped device, comes with a voice-activated system that will listen to and act on your commands such:
* Playing music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio and TuneIn:
* Answering questions about everything from science to history to current events and much more;
* Reading audiobooks;
* Providing up-to-the-minute news, sports and weather reports;
* Controlling lights, switches and thermostats with compatible devices;
Alexa, the name of the Echo’s ‘voice,’ will even order pizza from Domino’s or a car service from Uber, among other tasks.
Amazon says the certified refurbished Echo has been tested and proven to look and work like new.
The device is now available for Prime shipping, which means it will come in two days to Prime members.
