If you know where to look, you can find all sorts of great freebies on Amazon. And some of them don’t even require you to purchase anything specific.

For example, the retailer is running a promotion right now that gets you a free $5 credit after your third in-garage delivery using Amazon Key. It might not be a ton of money, but $5 is $5. If you live in an area with Amazon Key and you have a compatible smart garage door controller like the MyQ, which is on sale right now for just $19.98. Why not take advantage of this offer?

Then, there are other freebies that require certain purchases. Here, we’re going to show you the best free stuff Amazon is offering right now.

Free LED smart bulbs

Amazon was offering a bunch of deals late last year that included free LED smart bulbs. Unfortunately, most of those offers have now ended. But the good news is that there are still a few Echo Dot bundles that include free color smart bulbs.

First, you can pick up the Echo Dot 3 & color LED smart bulb bundle for just $27.98. That’s actually $2 less than the $30 retail price on the Echo Dot 3. And the upgraded Echo Dot 5 & color LED smart bulb bundle is down to $40.98. That’s a savings of $9 just compared to the Echo Dot 5’s $50 retail price. Plus, you get the free smart bulb!

The only other deal that remains from this big sale is the Echo Dot 5 with Clock bundle, which is on sale for $52.98. This model retails for $60 on its own.

There is one thing you should keep in mind. As far as we know, these deals were supposed to end after Christmas. That means you likely don’t have much longer to get in on the action before these offers are gone for good.

Free Amazon Music Unlimited music streaming

Services like Apple Music and Spotify are a must-have these days. They’re not free, of course, but they cost so much less than buying all the music you listen to each month.

Amazon has its own rival to the aforementioned services, and it’s called Amazon Music Unlimited. And now, thanks to some special offers, you can score 6 months of Amazon Music Unlimited for free!

Amazon is offering free music streaming along with several of its discounted Echo devices. The Echo Dot 5 is the most popular one, and it’s on sale right now for just $27.99 including 6 months of free Amazon Music Unlimited.

That’s a $104 value, and you’re getting it for only $27.99!

You can also score 6 months of Amazon Music Unlimited for free when you buy Echo Buds or Echo Buds with wireless charging. Prices start at just $69.99 right now while they’re on sale, and you can upgrade to the wireless charging model for $89.99.

Free Echo Dot with Fire TV

In addition to the deals above, there’s another offer right now on Amazon that you may want to check out. After all, not everyone is in need of a new Christmas tree.

If you’re in the market for a new smart TV, Amazon just gave you another reason to strongly consider one with built-in Fire TV software. That’s because when you buy one of the discounted models on this page, you’ll get a free Echo Dot along with it!

All you need to do is add one of those Fire TV sets to your cart. Then, add an Echo Dot to your cart as well. When you check out, use the coupon code FREEDOT22. Presto, you’ll get the Dot for free.

More free stuff from Amazon

In addition to the deals listed above, there are some more freebies you can score right now from Amazon. Here are our favorites:

  • Amazon gift card deals: Get free Amazon credit with these offers
  • Best Echo Dot deals: Get an Echo Dot for just $0.99 with one month of Amazon Music Unlimited — it’s not technically free, per se, but it’s close enough!

Expired deals that might come back

In this section of the article, we’re going to collect all the deals we’ve covered that are now expired. Why, you ask? Because Amazon loves to quietly bring back expired deals without telling anyone.

With that in mind, be sure to check out the sales listed below to see if any of those expired offers have returned.

Free Echo Dot + Amazon Smart Plug

Of all the freebies Amazon is offering right now, this offer is definitely our favorite. Aside from free money, that is.

From now until December 16, you can score not one but two freebies when you purchase a light-up Christmas tree. And incredibly, the two devices you get for free happen to be two of Amazon’s most popular devices ever!

First, you get a free Echo Dot 3rd-Gen worth $40. With more than 800,000 5-star reviews, this version of the Echo Dot is by far the most beloved smart speaker of all time.

On top of that, you also get a free Amazon Smart Plug worth $25. It has more than 430,000 5-star reviews, and it’s obviously the best model out there for use with Alexa.

Taking advantage of this deal couldn’t be easier.

Just pick the Christmas tree you want on this page and add it to your cart. Then, add the Echo Dot & Amazon Smart Plug bundle to your cart.

That’s it! When you check out, you’ll see that you’ll have a credit for the full cost of the Dot & smart plug bundle.
