Amazon is still offering the Alexa Voice Remote on sale for $14.99 (£14.99 UK) (€14,99 DE). If you’re at all interested in upgrading to the new remote for its power and volume buttons, or if you anticipate needing a second/replacement remote in the future, you should get in on this deal before it’s too late. The only reason this remote is on sale is to make up for the fact that so many people purchased the Fire TV Stick with the old remote during the holidays. Once this sale ends, it is very likely that you’ll never see this remote on sale again.
The last time Amazon put a Fire TV voice remote on sale was in 2015, and that was to clear out stock of the original Bluetooth remote because a new WiFi-direct version was replacing it. Amazon simply does not put their remote’s on sale for the sake of selling more remotes. There is always a specific reason for the sale, so remote sales are very rare.
To emphasize how good this $14.99 deal is, even when Amazon was clearing out stock of the original voice remote that was being replaced, it only ever dropped to $19.99. The previous remote that the new Alexa Voice Remote replaces has only ever dropped to $24.99, before settling at $27.99. This $14.99 price is so low because it was dictated by the holiday price of the Fire TV Stick. Amazon wanted to give those who purchased the Stick on sale for $24.99 over the holidays with the old remote a way to upgrade to the new remote without paying more than the $39.99 price of the new Fire TV Stick bundle in total.
As a reminder, the new Alexa Voice Remote for $14.99 is only compatible with the Fire TV Stick 2, Fire TV 3 (pendant), Fire TV Cube, and Fire TV Stick 4K. It is partially compatible with the NVIDIA Shield TV as long as you have a compatible Fire TV device to program it and you don’t mind losing voice capabilities. There’s no word on how long this sale will last.
