Before I start my review, I want to post some tips
1.) $20 Credit – This is NOT a gift card.. This is a promotional credit that shows up if and when you buy eligible products.. The nice thing about the “Wand” credit is that it will show up on MOST items sold by Amazon
2.) As stated in the description THIS DOES NOT play music.. BUT it is good for other things in the kitchen. Think of it as a “Mini” Alexa without all the expensive features
3.) The main purpos of this is a barcode scanner! Yes, that’s true BUT now that it includes ALEXA for simple features which I think is a great plus!
1.) Essentially Free
2.) The Alexa features are nice! But I purchased this as a barcode scanner to help me reorder stuff
3.) I find the Amazon prices on stuff I buy to be comparable to other stores.. I know some folks complain about high prices and who knows what they are buying.. I also know some stuff on Amazon is expensive BUT for the stuff I buy, it’s not
4.) Makes it easy to build a shopping list!
5.) Good battery life
Test Purchase: Sun Bum Shampoo Normal cost everywhere else is $17.99.. Amazon cost after scanning barcode was $17.99 but free because I used my $20 credit.. So yeah! Price is fine!
Overall: I will update this more as I use it more.. Mine just arrived but so far I am impressed with it
