Microcenter has the Echo Dot (white or black) like everyone else for $29.99....but unlike most, they still accept their $5 off $30 coupon. (If slickdeals removes the coupon name - google "$5 off $30 microcenter" to find the coupon).
You'll need to add any filler item to get the price above $30.00 BEFORE tax (all you need is 1 cent). I added some USB adapter for 69 cents. You can order online for in-store pickup or just go to the store. This is in-store ONLY but you can use it at the in-store pickup counter.
Will make it just about $25 + Tax!
The coupon only works once but can get a new code via a different browser, different phone, etc.
Hope this isn't posted elsewhere, on my phone and just left the store.
