It's Labor Day weekend and even Amazon has a sale.
On Monday is Labor Day 2016 and many Americans enjoy a long weekend. When there is a Holiday there is a sale. Most retailers offer Labor Day sales. Amazon is not known for offering a big Labor Day sale, but the retailer just launched special Labor Day deals on select Amazon devices.
The Amazon Tap is $30 off from now through September 10th. The Tap allows you to order pizza, have the news read to you, or taking the hassle out of navigating to your favorite music application. By tapping and asking all these chores can be completed by tapping and asking the Amazon Tap portable Bluetooth speaker to perform these arduous duties. The Amazon Tap sells now for $99.99 on Amazon.com.
The only big difference to the more expensive Amazon Echo ($179), the Tap requires you to push a button to ask Alexa a question. The Echo is always on, waiting for you to say "Alexa,...". Update: Amazon offers refurbished Amazon Echo devices for $149.99.
