It's hard to share this sale without sounding like a commercial for Amazon. Since this deal will be picked up all over the country today, however, we wanted to be the first to notify you of a birthday-related bargain.

The Amazon Echo - Amazon's Alexa always-connected speaker, smart home command center and source of information is one of the most popular products in the country.

Today "Alexa" turns two and to celebrate "her" second birthday, has cut prices by $40 bringing the reduction down to $140 - which is great considering Echo sold at $200 for a period of time.

The Amazon Echo can play all of your favorite music, call you an Uber, answer all sorts of questions, control your lights, entertain your kids and perform as a virtual assistant without any monthly fees.

This deal may not return Black Friday and could be the only time we see it this year.
