Now that the Echo Show 15 can double as a Fire TV and is compatible with the Fire TV Alexa Voice Remote, Amazon is offering owners of the smart display a discount on the Fire TV remote. If you purchase the remote through the Echo Show, you’ll pay just $9.99, which is 66% off the regular price of $29.99.
If you own an Echo Show 15, you should be able to simply say “Alexa, order a Fire TV remote” and see the discounted price. If that doesn’t work, try going into the Echo Show’s settings menu, which can be opened by swiping down from the top of the screen and selecting the Settings button. While in the settings menu, you should see an option labeled “Get Started with Fire TV Remote.” Tapping it should bring up a screen with a “Buy a Remote” button. You can also get to this screen by tapping the message banner that appears at the top of any Fire TV app that is not compatible with the touchscreen.
While $9.99 is a great deal for a Fire TV remote, since it hardly ever goes on sale, you might want to consider getting the Alexa Voice Remote Pro instead if you already own a Fire TV device. That way you can use the Pro remote with your Fire TV and use your old regular Fire TV remote with the Echo Show. Note that the Pro remote is not compatible with the Echo Show 15.
Thanks to Jay for pointing this deal out in the comments!
As pointed out by the marvelously named ClamSlam in the comments below, you may not actually need to own an Echo Show 15 to get this deal. Try asking any Alexa device to buy a Fire TV remote and you might get this discounted price.
