Amazon's Dash Wand With Alexa is Free; Gives $20 Shopping Credit

Handout Amazon Dash Wand

Powered by Alexa, it enables users to scan barcodes on grocery items, order essential household items from Amazon by using voice commands, convert measurements, and more with a nifty little device that they can carry around with them in the home.

Amazon has introduced the next generation of its Dash buttons, which enable people order grocery items with a press of a button. The device is also water resistant, so it can handle living in a busy kitchen, and is magnetic. Besides ordering grocery features, the Dash Wand's Alexa integration allows you to access some of the digital assistant's other features. At the same time, it can lock customers into its retail platform, simplifying food shopping by offering no-click restocking on most common items. The system's clearly created to get you paying for it once you've experienced the convenience of the Dash Wand. Will you be picking one up?

The online retailer on Thursday (June 15) unveiled the Amazon Dash Wand.

While it has Alexa built-in, the Dash Wand isn't meant to sit in your living room to serve as a speaker like Amazon's Echo. Making the shopping experience easier and offering a new Alexa toy to play with will only drive up orders, as if Amazon needs any help to keep its business afloat.




The best part is that the device is pretty much free right now. But for all the Amazon Prime subscribers of the United States, there is a lucrative offer.

The Amazon Dash Wand is also nearly free for users. You can also try the AmazonFresh which is free for a period of 90 days.

AmazonFresh costs $299 per year (or $14.99 per month).
