Not me. I only use them as an Amazon showroom. I know how much their prices are jacked up and I am tired of them ripping off my customers.

You can always play your iTunes music on your device and then use bluetooth to send the audio to Echo/Dot.

Thank you!! I also did some googling and you can upload your iTunes library to Amazon music :)

So now I think I'm back on for getting one for my dad brother and possibly myself.
