Ready to speak to the future? For a limited time, Amazon Store Cardholders and new members can save $50 on the surprisingly great Amazon Echo, bringing it down to just $130. That would be a good price for a speaker of this quality on its own, let alone one that can read you the news and convert measurements while you cook.

It’s important to note that this deal is not for Amazon Rewards Visa members; it’s reserved only for holders of the newer, somewhat confusingly-named Amazon Store Card. Unlike the Amazon Visa, the Amazon Store Card can only be used on, and gives you access to special financing offers, plus 5% cash back on all purchases for Prime members. If you do a lot of your shopping on Amazon, you should probably have this card anyway, but the Echo discount is a nice incentive. [Amazon Echo, $130 for Amazon Store Card Holders with code ECHODEAL]
