Amazon Dash Wand With Alexa: $20 + $20 in Amazon Credit w/ Prime

wandAmazon has another gadget, this time called the Amazon Dash Wand With Alexa. You talk to the Alexa voice assistant and do Alexa-type things like ask the weather or order stuff (though it doesn’t play music), or you can scan physical barcodes with it. If you have Amazon Prime, it costs $20 but you’ll get a $20 promotional credit when you register your Amazon Dash Wand with your Amazon Prime account.

You may not have (or necessarily want) an always-listening Amazon Echo, so it’s good to have a cheap alternative. In addition, this device will get you access to “Alexa-only” deals, so this would be a free and easy way to gain that capability. You also get an extended 90-day free trial of AmazonFresh (normally $14.99 per month). Imagine grocery shopping by just saying out loud what you are running low on.

Promotional credit only applies to products sold by Amazon.com or Amazon Digital Services. Here are the full promo details.

  1. Are you sure this will get you access to Alexa-only deals?

    Specifically, per the T&C at https://www.amazon.com/alexa-voice-shopping/b?ie=UTF8&node=14552177011

    “Alexa Deals Terms and Conditions
    Offers only apply to products purchased from Amazon.com using Alexa voice shopping on an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Fire TV, or Fire Tablet device.”

    Thank you so much!

    • My opinion would be that page simply hasn’t been updated yet. Only recently did Fire Tablets get added. My reason for thinking this is that on the Amazon Dash Wand page it says

      “Just press the button and say:

      “How many teaspoons in a tablespoon?”

      “How many calories are there in Greek yogurt?”

      “Alexa, ask Pizza Hut to place an order.”

      “Ask Allrecipes for a shrimp recipe.”

      “Reorder double A batteries.”

      “Alexa, what are your deals?”

      These available skills would suggest that this is “full Alexa” and the last one would suggest access to the Alexa deals.
