Amazon currently has a pretty awesome bundle for anyone that is looking to get started with the Alexa platform. It includes the Fire TV Stick with Alexa and the Amazon Echo Dot, for just $69.98. Now if you were to buy these separately, you would pay $89.98 together, so by bundling them together, you're saving $20. Which isn't bad at all.
The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a great set-top dongle to pick up for your TV. The Fire TV platform has a slew of great apps and games already available, including all of the big names like Netflix, HBO GO, DIRECTV NOW, Sling TV, PlayStation VUE, Hulu and many more. It also has Alexa built-in, so you can ask Alexa to find you something to watch, or even order some pizza. Then there's the Echo Dot. It's a small speaker, with Alexa built-in. So you could put this somewhere else in your home and talk to Alexa, ask her for a recipe while you're cooking, ask her to turn on your smart lights and so much more.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap next-day shipping if you need it here extra fast.

Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
