"Alexa order Amazon Dot"

Now allows you to order the gen 2 Echo Dot [amazon.com]! It is $50 but there is a $5 discount. It is not instock but gave me an Oct. 20th delivery date and placed the order. It is my understanding [theverge.com] that they are now available in black and white. Alexa specified I was ordering a black one.

Note: Must order with Alexa to receive discount, YMMV.

HOW TO GET IT FOR $39.99 FROM BED BATH AND BEYOND

1. Go to BBB [bedbathandbeyond.com] using User Agent switcher or some other add on to spoof mobile browsing. You should see an offer as attached.
2. Input your email and click submit
3. Add echo dot to cart
4. Go to Checkout and enter your details in the "Shipping Address" section. Click "Apply and Continue". You could use a dummy phone number if you like since it is a required field.
5. You should now see 20% off coupon in "My Offers" as attached picture 2 shows. Once you click apply, you should now be able to buy it for $39.99 plus tax.

Use User Agent Switcher addon for Chrome [google.com] or Firefox [mozilla.org] in order to spoof the mobile website.


Be aware that Amazon has changed warranty period for the Dot. The original (and all over Amazon devices that I'm aware of) have a 1 year warranty. The GEN2 DOT only comes with 90 day warranty. You can buy extended warranty for 1-3 years.

Differences between the Gen1 and Gen2:
  • The new dot is smaller. Same 3.3" diameter but is 1.3" tall vs 1.5" tall
  • Directional mic holes are slashes instead of tiny circles
  • Volume buttons replaced the volume slider around the top
  • 5.7 oz vs 8.8 oz so slightly lighter likely due to smaller height
  • Comes with 90 day warranty vs first gen had 1 year
  • No more power indicator light on the back
  • Side material appears to have a glossy finish now
  • No longer includes the 3.5 mm audio cable (4 ft.)
Note: You can order mixed colors and still get the 6-pak discount. Add 6 Dot's to cart (any color combination) - discount shows up on the checkout page.

I feel like an idiot for buying the original dot for much more.
I will gladly pay 10 times as much if I can control my wife with this. OMG

I tried to sneak this by on https://echosim.io/ and it doesn't seem to recognize that the Dot exists.

First I'm hearing of this. I see no mention of it, but I wonder if they improved the volume? I use a dot in my office and full Alexa in my kitchen, so the spatial sound thing will come in handy

Alexa stated a $5 discount when I ordered. I couldn't even see the Dot 2 link until after I ordered through Alexa and looked at my order status in Amazon. Not sure why she gave me the $5 discount but she did!
