Prime Day’s mid-July date was no accident – hooking customers as Prime members in midsummer makes it easier for them to turn to Amazon for back-to-school and holiday shopping, Misso said. Alexa-enabled devices, like the Echo, can help you track deals, too.
Starting today, you can ask Alexa, “What are your deals?” to learn the available Alexa voice deals that day.
Customers shopping with a gadget equipped with Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistant will get access to Prime Day deals two hours before anyone else.
If Amazon really wants to show people it’s useful, why isn’t it offering shampoo, garbage bags, batteries and all-purpose cleaner? The website is also now promoting its unlimited one-day delivery option for “millions” of items. Deals start the night before, but voice shoppers using Alexa will get an even bigger head start.
Amazon is not like Best Buy a prime retail partner of Apple, but an authorized reseller.
Alexa can already quickly order just about anything in Amazon’s catalog. There is a discount on the Bose Soundlink Bluetooth Speaker III, and the second generation of the Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus, which works with Alexa.
Ask Alexa the question “Alexa, what are your deals?“.
There’s still plenty of uncertainty, and Amazon will undoubtedly deliver some surprises here and there, but we have eight predictions for Prime Day, which kicks off at 9 p.m. ET on June 10 and runs through June 11.
Save $7 on Wemo Mini smart plug – say, “Alexa, order Wemo Mini Smart Plug”. In fact, users won’t be able to just say, “Alexa, order gummy bears”.
As a reminder, Prime Day Deals will become available for preview on Amazon 24 hours before the start of the event.
Amazon detailed a few of the deals that Alexa will have on offer today. Likewise, Amazon has also announced exclusive discounts and early access for deals through Alexa devices.
Amazon Voice orderVoice shopping with Alexa allows customers to shop for tens of millions of Prime-eligible items. “Other cards which offer restricted rewards, such as supermarket credit cards, may be more attractive depending on where you shop”.
