Woot is selling the original (1st Generation) Amazon Echo NEW, not Refurbished for $49.99 w/Free Prime shipping for $49.99 plus tax in your state.
Not sure where they found this inventory of new Echo's that fired up the Alexa product line a few years back. This was the first Alexa device that Amazon sold, and they sold for $179.99. Only the black color is still available. Over 60k Amazon ratings with 4.3 stars.
Great gift for seniors and kids, even yourself at a bargain bin price.
These just went up for sale on Woot Tuesday (yesterday), and look to be going fast. Get 'em while the gettin' is good.
