Echo Connect | $28 | Amazon

If, for some reason, you still have a home phone or VoIP services, Amazon’s offering the first discount ever on its Echo Connect, which lets you use any Echo device as a voice-controlled phone. Just plug a phone jack into the Connect, sync it with your contacts through the Alexa app, and voila, you can call your parents or your local thai takeout place from across the room using only your voice.
