Ars Technic’s Adam Langley reports that Amazon has started accepting credit cards as a payment method for digital playlists, and that the retailer will begin offering “premium” packages starting on June 15th.
Amazon says that the packages will include “premier audio, high definition video, and more,” but that they’ll only be available to those who have already subscribed to its Prime service.
For those who haven’t yet subscribed, Amazon is offering a limited number of promotional items as well.
The first is a pair of headphones, the Amazon Echo 2, that Amazon says will “add extra fun and energy to your digital play.”
The Echo 2 comes with Alexa, a voice-controlled assistant that lets you control music, media playback, and other functions.
The headphones, which Amazon calls the Echo Play, will also let you control Amazon Prime Music.
The second item in the package is a limited edition Echo Play Stick, which will “take your digital media experience to the next level.”
The stick will be $99, and Amazon says it will only be offered “in limited quantities” at select retailers.
The Echo Play will only work with Alexa devices.
A third item in Amazon’s promotional offers is a $99 Echo speaker, which is described as a “fully immersive, audio-packed speaker with a built-in speakerphone.”
The speakerphone will be available at Amazon for $99 when it launches in June.
Amazon’s promo promotion comes on the heels of the retailer’s announcement that it would be offering free trial access to the Echo Show, which was the company’s way of launching the Echo.
The show, which launched on October 2nd, will now be available for one month from now.
That’s a significant boost for Amazon, as it had previously only offered the Echo and Echo Show for $50.
The new promo offers, though, aren’t limited to Amazon.
They’re available to other retailers and Amazon itself, so you can get your hands on a couple of the products at any time.
There’s also a $30 Amazon Prime Gift Card, which gives you access to an unlimited number of free Prime memberships, as well as a free copy of Amazon’s Echo Show app.
There are also $30 credit cards, and $50 gift cards for a total of $400 worth of Amazon promo offers.
These cards are available at participating retailers starting today, and you can use them in the future if you like.
If you’re a Prime member, Amazon will automatically convert any unused credit and gift cards into dollars, so it’s a great way to save money and start playing.
