Thanks OP
Full price was showing on the Amazon website but worked fine on the Alexa app.
Had Address pal set as default delivery address.

At the bottom of the Alexa amazon app there are the options home, communicate, play, devices.
Is it one of these I elect to communicate the firestick option?

The chat help are clueless

Me: I'm getting an error on my phone which says “I’m sorry but I can only shop in the primary language associated with your Amazon account. If you’d like to switch languages, go to Settings in the Alexa app, select your device, and then select Language.”
Chat: Can I have your Echo serial number
Me: I don't have one, I'm using a phone
Chat: You need to have an Echo device linked to your phone
Me: Really? Can you link me to the documentation on this?
Chat: You need to change the language to English on your phone app menu
Me: How do I do this. I don't see any option?
Chat: May I ask if you are in Ireland
Me: No, I'm in the UK currently but from Ireland originally. English is my primary language
Chat: I'll update your account settings

This will also work for an Amazon Echo Show 5 which gets reduced to £49.99, again go to app and say "Alexa I want to buy Alexa Echo Show 5 Black/White"
pressed alexa button and no option for phone to receive a message

Thanks op. I'd wanted to get one for ages as it's always the recommended one for Kodi etc.
Missus is buying a tv and I wanted to get her one also but seems it only works for one.
If I can cast easily I'll give her my Chromecast and set her up on her phone with some apps.
I was tempted to wait until Friday to see if there's a general sale but at this stage I pulled the trigger on one to test.

Fixed language issue in Amazon.com settings. I had to reassign to UK.

Cheers ordered one there for Home TV..

Just wondering is it only the Fire TV and Echo Show 5 you can get at a discount price by asking Alexa?

I reckon these will be sold at this price during Black Friday, this is probably just an advance sale for those with Alexa setup.

Is this the same 4K stick as sold last year or is the "Ultra" version a new model?

I take it Kodi can still be installed no prob?

This is the version I got from it:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Also scratch my above message i found the link that shows the discounts with alexa:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/b?ie=UTF8&node=12469013031

EDIT: Yeah they probably will be same price for Black Friday deal but I believe they sold out during Amazon week (or at least didn't have stock for weeks)

If you tap the light blue circle in the centre bottom, you will hear a bleep sound and an X appears.. You can now speak into the microphone.

If you purchase £50 gift card you could also be entitled to £6 credit.

For those who haven't purchased a gift card in the previous 36 months.
