The Music Unlimited Individual Plan costs $7.99 for Prime members. Throw in a $0.99 Echo Dot (3rd Gen) and the grand total comes to only $8.98. Yep, that's a $40 smart speaker and a month of unlimited music streaming at a huge discount.

This Amazon deal gets you a $40 smart speaker for just 99 cents when you sign up for one month of Amazon Music Unlimited ($9.99 regular price/$7.99 for Prime members). The five-star Echo Dot 3rd Generation is a great all-round performer. Deal ends 31st December 2021.

The offer seems to be for new Music Unlimited subscribers only – although if you're a past subscriber (or have previously used a trial promotion), all is not lost. Deal-savvy users who've used up trial memberships in the past have been able to snap up this Echo Dot deal via the desktop version of Amazon Music Unlimited

Not a Prime member? You can still take advantage of this crazy deal. Non-Prime members will simply pay $2 more ($9.99) for one month of the Music Unlimited, plus the same $0.99 for the Echo Dot (3rd Gen), for a grand total of $10.98. Again, Music Unlimited auto-renews every month but you can cancel it at any time. Like most streaming services, it's contract-free.

We found this third iteration of the Echo Dot to be a five-star performer at its regular price of $40, offering a clear, solid sound and improved Alexa capabilities. And let's face it, at $0.99 it's an absolute steal. As for Amazon Music Unlimited, we rated it a healthy four stars, praising its "excellent catalogue" and Ultra HD offering.

Make sure you capitalize on this epic 99 cents Echo Dot deal before it ends on 31st December.
