New $20 gadget puts the power of Amazon Alexa at your fingertips

New $20 gadget puts the power of Amazon Alexa at your fingertips

If you want all of the magic that is Alexa, portability, and a rock bottom price, we’ve got just the thing for you. Amazon just last week unveiled its new second-generation Amazon Dash Wand, which can take voice commands using Alexa and even scan bar codes to let you reorder products in an instant. But since the want has full Alexa capabilities, it can also replace an Echo speaker, answering your questions and even controlling your smart home devices.

At $20, it’s already the cheapest way to get your hands on Alexa now, but Prime subscribers can get a Dash Wand without paying a penny. Just register the wand when you receive it and you’ll instantly get a $20 credit on your next Amazon purchase. The bad news is the Wand is currently out of stock, but you should definitely still order one now to lock in the deal that gets you a $20 credit.

Here’s what you need to know from the product page:

  • Groceries have never been easier. All new Amazon Dash Wand with Alexa helps you find recipes, convert cups to ounces, buy and reorder essentials, find nearby restaurants and more.
  • Purchase Dash Wand for $20 and get $20 off your next purchase after you register the device. *
  • Try AmazonFresh free for 90 days (normally $14.99 per month) **
  • Say it or scan a barcode. It’s added to your shopping cart. Just say “paper towels.”
  • Water-resistant, durable design, and magnetic so you can stick it on your fridge.
