What can you get for $20 on Amazon?

How about a 2nd generation Echo Dot that can do more than just play your favorite tunes? It can also control your lights and thermostat, hands-free.

By making one move you can get a $20 Amazon gift card to update you home with an Echo Dot. Bonus: This will also help you save money on your home energy bill. Pretty cool.

Smarter Energy for a Smarter Home

You can use your energy bill to support renewable energy — no matter where you live.

With renewable energy company Arcadia Power, you can offset your monthly energy consumption with 100% renewable sources in about two minutes.

Arcadia Power matches each kilowatt-hour of power you use with a kilowatt-hour of wind energy. Basically the company purchases certified renewable energy certificates in your name, so others can take advantage of clean energy in their area.

Not only will using clean energy not cost you more, Arcadia will find the lowest rates in your area and automatically switch you to that provider so you’ll pay even less.

When you sign up your home or apartment (yup, renters are eligible, too!) with Arcadia, you’ll get a free $20 Amazon gift card.

Now, you can get that Echo Dot for your home.

See how that works? Your home is smarter now and you’ll feel smarter every time you look at your energy bill. Boom.
