Amazon’s Echo (4th generation) smart speaker is being bundled with two free Philips Hue smart bulbs for a limited time in the US right now. The bundle is priced at $99.99 (opens in new tab), which is a saving of $29.99, making it a great deal if you want to dip your toe in the water when it comes to smart lighting.

The Amazon Echo (4th generation) doubles as a hub for the bulbs, so there’s no need for you to purchase Hue’s own hub if you want to control the light bulbs even when you’re not at home. The Amazon Echo (4th generation) has been as low as $69.99, so if you’re not interested in putting smart light bulbs in your home, you may want to wait to see if the price of the smart speaker falls later in the year.   

Unfortunately, the same smart speaker and bulb bundle aren’t available in the UK. Instead, Brits can pick up an Amazon Echo (4th generation) for £69.99 (opens in new tab), which is a £20 saving on the list price, and it comes with one free Philips Hue bulb, in either bayonet or screw fitting, included at no extra cost.

In the UK, Amazon has discounted the Amazon Echo (4th generation) by £20, making it £69.99. This isn't the rock-bottom pricing we saw during Black Friday or the Christmas period, but with a free Philips Hue smart bulb thrown in, it's good value if you fancy trying out a smart light bulb in your home. 

With a spherical design that's a departure from previous models of Amazon's original smart speaker, the Amazon Echo (4th generation) certainly looks different, but it still offers a room-filling sound and all the smarts you'd expect from an Alexa-enabled speaker. It also has a light ring on the bottom that glows different colors to indicate when Alexa is listening, when the microphone is muted or you have a shipping notification or message waiting.

Meanwhile, Philips Hue smart bulbs let you tweak the shade of white the bulb glows and can easily be controlled from your smartphone or by Alexa, letting you bring some simple automation to your home.
