Got skills? Bring your big idea to life with Alexa and earn the latest promotion. When developers build delightful skills with compelling content, customers win. US developers—this month we're offering two promotions when you publish new skills and add in-skill purchasing to previously published skills.
Promotion 1: Publish a skill in June, submit the form below, and earn an AWS IoT Button. Use our templates to get started quickly, then build the skill of your daydreams. All skill types are eligible for this promotion.
Promotion 2: All developers now have the opportunity to make money with Alexa skills. With in-skill purchasing, you can sell premium content as one-time purchases or subscriptions to enrich your Alexa skill experience. Developers in the US who add in-skill purchasing to any skill in June can earn an Alexa-enabled device for the car.
By adding in-skill purchasing, you can offer premium experiences in the form of game products, interactive stories, new features or content, and more. In-skill purchasing supports both one-time purchases for entitlements that unlock access to features or content in your skill and subscriptions that offer access to premium features or content for a period of time.
Only custom skills available in the Alexa US Skills Store created by developers in the US are eligible for the in skill purchasing promotion. Learn more and get started with in-skill purchasing today.
Please note: You may apply to both promotions, but you must use a unique skill ID for each submission. See updated terms and conditions below. Please note: You may only apply to Alexa promotions in the country or region you reside in, or you will be ineligible for all current Alexa promotions.
If you're not in the US, check out our other promotions in Canada, UK, Germany, Japan, France, Australia, and India to see if your country/region of residence is covered by those promotions.

This month's Alexa developer skill promotion is different from the recent ones. There are actually two different promotions. You can get both promotions, but they have to be two different skills.
If you publish any skill, you can get an AWS IoT Button. This is a version of the Dash Button, where you program what the button does. Amazon sells it for $20.
For the other promotion, if you add in-skill purchasing to a skill you get an Anker Roav VIVA, which is an Alexa-enabled two-port USB car charger. It gets its Internet connection through a Bluetooth connection to your phone, and Amazon sells it for $50.
