Amazon just brought back the deal that gets you an Echo Flex with a Free Smart Bulb for $9.99. This bundle was briefly available at this price back in October and it sold out very quickly, so grab it while you can. The Echo Flex normally sells for $24.99 on its own and the included Sengled smart bulb normally costs $9.99. That makes this bundle 70% off and one of the best deals you can find on an Echo and Smart bulb.
The Echo Flex is Amazon’s least expensive smart speaker. It plugs directly into an outlet and gives you a simple way to talk to Alexa. While you can play music out of this speaker, it’s really not designed for that so it’s not going to sound good. It’s more for just adding access to Alex.
The Echo Flex can be used on its own for Alexa, but it also supports various accessories that plug into the USB port on the bottom of the device. The available accessories are a Clock, Night Light, Motion Sensor, and a newly released IR blaster for controling things like TVs, fans, heaters, and air condintioners with IR remotes. Each accessory is integrated in some way with Alexa so that it can be controlled by voice, Alexa routines, or manually through the app.
The included Sengled smart bulb is a soft white (2700K) bulb that can be dimmed. It does not need a smart hub because it connects directly to any Echo or its smartphone app over Bluetooth. It consumes 8.7 watts and is a 60-watt equivalent bulb, thanks to its 800 lumen light output.
