With Christmas on the way, we're all on the lookout for great bargains at the moment – and they don't come much better than this. In one of the most exciting early Black Friday music deals we've seen so far, Amazon is offering two Echo Dot (3rd Gen) speakers for the price of one with the code ECHODOT2FOR1.

As anyone who's got one of these little gadgets will tell you, the Echo Dot is a very useful device to have around the home. This puck-shaped speaker will not only enable you to stream your favourite tunes – you can currently get three months of Amazon Music Unlimited for free – it'll help you to manage your life, give you news and weather updates, and allow you to control your smart home, all with a few simple voice commands.

With last year’s launch of the fourth-generation Dot, Amazon is practically giving the 3rd Gen model away at the moment. As well as offering two of these brilliant speakers for the price of one, the retail giant has slashed the price from £39.99 to just £37.98, meaning each speaker effectively costs less than £19.

To take advantage of this offer, you'll need to apply the promo code ECHODOT2FOR1
