The dot wasn't an option when I got one, but having to deal with pairing and turning speaker on/off maybe is why? Also the echo just looks nice, vs a speaker and a dot sitting on a counter.

A dot is great for a bedroom or if you plan on connecting it to a stereo. The fullsize echo is great for a larger open area. I have an echo in the kitchen and a dot in the bedroom. The built in speaker on the dot is fine for a small space, but the fullsize one has a strong enough speaker for a large room.
Saw it for the same price at Best Buy today as well. The 'deal' seems to be that you can buy it with a 5 part multi-pay for $28 a month... which brings it to your door a bit cheaper than the Dot.
I almost bought one but I saw a couple reviews that the speaker isn't all that great and you know there will be endless bluetooth speaker and TV sound bar deals in the next few weeks... there always are so the Dot seems like a much better option. Also, Staples black friday lists the dot for $39... I bet the dot will be like the 7" fire was last year as a black friday item.
