TL;DR: Kick off your smart home collection with a free Philips Hue smart bulb with the purchase of an Echo Show at Amazon, meaning you pay $229.99 for both, a savings of almost $30.


The Echo Show combines all the benefits of Alexa with the visuals you would get with your phone’s assistant to give you a super convenient smart home device. You can use voice controls to manage other smart devices, like , while seeing settings displayed on the Echo Show’s screen.

If you don’t have any smart home devices yet, you might not be inclined to purchase a smart assistant, but here’s some incentive: When you buy the Echo Show, you get a free Philips Hue smart lightbulb to kick off your smart home collection. 

To get into a bit about the Echo Show, it has premium speakers with Dolby processing, so you get clear, crisp audio when you stream music, books, and video. Speaking of video, the Show features a vibrant 10-inch screen for watching videos, movies, and TV shows.

Alexa incorporates visual responses when you ask the Show questions. For instance, if you can’t figure out the words to a new song you just heard, ask Alexa and the lyrics will be displayed on the Show’s screen for you to see. Or if you’re a master in the kitchen, display your favorite recipes while you cook.

As with other Echo devices, simply say “Alexa” and give your command. With your new smart bulb you can tell the assistant to turn on the lights or schedule the bulb to run on a timer when you’re away.

Grab the Echo Show and Philips Hue bulb bundle at Amazon for $229.99.
