You can use Amazon Alexa with your Xbox One now, so it makes perfect sense that Amazon is giving away a free Amazon Echo Dot with select Xbox One bundles. The promotion is only going on for a limited time and there are several bundles to choose from. It’s a great bundle going into the holiday, last year many of the more popular bundles sold out leading up to Christmas and prices are expected to stay the same over the next two-months.
The Alexa functionality was part of the latest Xbox Update and there is a new Xbox Skill for Alexa devices that allows you to navigate the console. The new promotion will give you a free Echo Dot device and you can choose between the Xbox One X or the Xbox One S console.
You can find the full-list of games and bundles that are included in the promotion right here on Amazon.
It’s a pretty great deal, considering that the Echo Dot costs $50 on its own. The different bundles all come with different featured games and range in price from $499 to $299. That’s the MSRP for the devices, so you’re not missing out on any other savings. The games included range from “Battlefield V,” “Minecraft,” “NBA2K19,” and “Fallout 76”. Some models even have different Echo Dot color options, like Sandstone and Charcoal.
The Alexa functionality is also a major plus. You can turn on your Xbox, take screenshots, turn the volume up or down, jump to a specific application or game, and a lot more. Again, the promotion is only running for a limited time, but you do get free Prime shipping on all of the bundles if you are an Amazon Prime Member. With the holidays right around the corner, we don’t expect the Battlefield V or the Fallout 76 bundles to stay in stock very long.
