If using a speaker to order another speaker isn’t the future, I don’t know what is.

Thanks to a reader tip, we know that Amazon today is offering two exceptional speakers — Sonos’ Play:5 or Play:1 — at a significant discount for those who order with an Alexa-enabled device.

Greetings, tech nerd!

Are you into gadgets? And apps? And other cool tech stuff? Then this weekly newsletter is for you.

After testing its legitimacy, we can confirm that saying “Alexa, order a (black or white) Sonos Play:1” gives users $50 off its sticker price of $199. Or maybe you’re looking for something a bit bigger. Play:5 has a similar deal, and a similar command. Using the wording above, swap out Play:1 for Play:5 and can snag a really exceptional speaker for just $399, a $100 savings.

The deal didn’t seem to be available on other Sonos products.
