Mrs. Wife got a credit card form our bank. After spending US$500 we got US$300 "cash back" and both an Amazon Dot and Echo. Got rid of both, still shrink-wrapped. (the Dot was donated, made into the prize for a drawing, and made US$150 for charity - best thing it will ever do as it lacks a self-destruct button).

An aside:
Once - in a home with an Alexa, I exclaimed "Alexa, Please Die" - try it. Frequently.
