Brand new Amazon Tap for $60 -- cheapest price I've seen. Follow link below. This previously sold for $130 new on Amazon, and currently goes for $84.99 on Best Buy.
Default "Buy it now" price is $61.99. However seller will auto-accept a 'Best Offer' of $60. I tried $58 and $59 as well and was auto-rejected. You may be able to get it somewhere between $59.01-$59.99.

Great reviews for this (4/5 stars on 8,500+ reviews), but Amazon has decided to discontinue it. Never thought much of it until last weekend. A friend of mine had one. Very impressed with the sound quality - comes close to the full size Echo, while being slimmer. The best feature, however, is that it's rechargeable and can last up to 9 hours with no electricity. Perfect for the lake, camping, etc. You can also connect to it from your phone/device via bluetooth, or use an aux cable for input.. Originally the Tap was designed to respond only when pressed (unlike other Echo products). This was to address concerns of the Echo 'always listening' mic. Since then, a software update has enabled the 'always on/always listening' option so that it functions like the other Echos (no need to press the button). There are external batteries that work with full size Echo but, factoring in the price of the Echo + the external battery, the Amazon Tap seems like the the better way to go. Overall, this is an awesome device -- too bad Amazon discontinued it.
