Shop with your voice to score Amazon’s new Alexa-only deals

Amazon is encouraging shoppers to buy goods using only their voice by offering exclusive deals that are only available via Alexa, its amazing virtual assistant. You’ll need an Echo, Echo Dot, or Tap speaker to take advantage of them.

From now until July 12, customers who shop with Alexa for the first time will get $10 off any purchase over $20. In addition, there are Alexa discounts to be had on a number of popular products, including $50.99 off the Amazon Tap speaker.

On July 12 — which is Prime Day — Amazon will add more Alexa-only deals on video games, devices, smart home appliances, and more. To find out more about them on the day, simply ask Alexa, “what are your Prime Day deals?”

If you haven’t shopped with Alexa before, it’s as simple as telling your speaker what you want to buy. It will then add your item to your basket, confirm you want to buy it, and then process your order. It’s great if you only need to pick up one item, and you know exactly what you want.
