Amazon fire tv stick 4k Ultra £29.99

Found this offer via Alexa on hotukdeals, if you say 'Alexa I want to buy Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Ultra' - Fire Stick 4k comes up as £49.99, and adds to basket at £49.99 and then take to checkout to see the £20 discount applied. Think its only one per customer.

Cannot get it to apply the discount. I'm not ordering through Alexa (as I don't have any compatible devices). Has anyone had any joy?

You can download the Amazon Alexa app on your phone and use that to order it.

Can someone explain to me what exactly what a Fire Stick does?
Is there any point in getting one if you have a Smart Tv or a PS4 with apps?
Is it beneficial if you have a vpn for accessing content only available in other countries?

It's basically an Android box that's designed for TVs (so android TV) as opposed to getting one of the crappy Chinese android boxes which usually contain a version of Android designed for phones (touch screens) hence why they all need the control pads to operate them.

They're handy for the likes of IPTV or streaming services such as Netflix and prime video etc, and because it's an Amazon product you can be assured of the build quality and the aftercare that will come with it.

It's also extremely portable, making it easy to take into a different room with you, or over to a pals house (as I did recently during the Katie Taylor fight night) or even with you if you go on holidays as it's a lot easier to slip into the suitcase than the likes of a shield or other android box.

I've said it before on here, it's pretty much the best value android device going.

Worked perfectly. Alexa confirms the discount on ordering.

Sure..... you can get then in Argos for €45 full price. If you wait-n-see - it goes as low as €35.

Is it possible to access US streaming services through it using your VPN or no?
Sorry for all the questions
