A few weeks ago Amazon unveiled the Fire TV Cube. A cross-breed between its popular Echo speaker and a Fire TV, the device aims to unite your smart home and media consumption under one all-encompassing Amazon device.
Amazon opened pre-orders for the device, which costs $120, earlier this month. Shipping is expected to start tomorrow. But if you haven’t ordered your Fire TV Cube yet, you might be interested to know that Amazon is currently offering a pretty sweet trade-in deal, which it hopes, will drive adoption of the new product.
Basically, you can trade-in an eligible device and get up to $35 off towards the purchase of the new Fire TV Cube.
Ready to trade in? Here are the eligible devices:
- Roku set-top box or dongle
- Apple TV
- Google Chromecast device
Under the promotion, when you trade in an older, streaming device, Amazon will give you up to $2.99 as an Amazon gift card. Amazon notes it will even take devices that no longer work.
Once your trade in is accepted, you can place an order for a Fire TV Cube (or 4K Fire TV). The up to $35 savings will automatically be applied at checkout.
The amount of money you get back depends on the device you submit. But Amazon will let you know, so you can confirm the trade. For example, sending in a Roku streaming stick will get you a $25 discount on either the Fire TV Cube or 4K Fire TV, while the Chromecast Ultra will shave $35 off the Cube.

The Fire TV Cube is a pretty intriguing product, so the deal will most likely attract the attention of a lot of costumers. The box-shaped device can power your home entertainment system on and off, switch inputs on your TV, play or pause a show, and handle basic Alexa questions like: “How’s the weather going to be tomorrow?”
