The Echo Dot, Amazon's $50 in-home assistant, was briefly free on Amazon today, thanks to an "Audible" discount that got added at checkout. The discount applied to both black and white models, though it now appears people trying to score a free Echo Dot are being told the items are no longer in stock.

We've reached out to Amazon for clarification on the sudden super-sale. Whatever the reason, happy random Prime Day, folks.

Update, 4:10PM ET: The Echo Dot is back in stock at Amazon -- and, big surprise, it is no longer free. If we had to guess, this was a glitch on Amazon's part, and we're expecting these free orders to get cancelled before long.
