Free Amazon Echo Dot when signup for Irish times subscription for 6 months. Sign-up HERE @ Irish Times

If you have no interest in the Irish times its cheaper to just buy the echo dot for €49 on its own!

First month €1, then pay €4 each week. Echo dot is delivered after the first month.


T&C's

As the 3rd Gen is only on Pre-order I would say chances are slim. This is an offer to get rid of the older models but specwise they are nearly the same.

it really annoys me when companies hate their existing customers:
i. The offer is available to new subscribers only; existing subscribers are not eligible to avail of the offer.

Even better, they called me with a random survey and i asked them could i get it. the person asked their manager and boom.

They signed me up for a 6 month contract, exactly the same as what I've always been on but i get the echo dot in December.
I'm signed up for the digital package and get the Saturday paper delivered to my house.

Happy days! Cheers guys.

finally got them to confirm - as suspected, they bought a load of the gen 2 in bulk and are now hoping that they'll get enough subscribers to get rid of them all....

"You may cancel your subscription at any time during your first month of service. Your Echo Dot device will be delivered following commencement of second month’s service, after which time you agree to enter into a six month contract period. Cancellation will not be permitted during this time."

So is it a seven month contract then? Or 6?

I'm taking it as 7 - the first month for €1, the next 6 at €16. works out at just under €14 a month for the 7 months.

edit, previous subscribers can't get the €1 for the first month, but can still re-subscribe and get the echo.
