Microsoft and Amazon are partnering up for a new Xbox One bundle package. Starting October 12, “qualified” Xbox One S and Xbox One S systems purchased through will also come with an Amazon Echo Dot at no extra cost, Microsoft announced. This is the new Amazon Echo Dot, which normally goes for $50 by itself, so this is a pretty nice deal.

This offer is only good “while supplies last,” so if you’re interested you may want to act quickly. Also note that this deal is good in the United States only.

Right now it’s not known which Xbox One S and Xbox One X bundles come with the free Amazon Echo Dot, but that should become clear soon as the deal goes live. Whatever the case, many Xbox One bundles already come with free games, like the NBA 2K19 bundle pictured above, so you’re getting multiple freebies as part of this deal.

This deal appears to be timed with the new Xbox One update that adds voice support for the Amazon Echo device. You can now use an Alexa-enabled device to give voice commands to your console for things like turning the system on/off, adjusting volume, capturing screenshots, launching games, and more.
