Amazon isn’t waiting for Black Friday to come around this year. They’re already stoking the fire on holiday season spending with several deals announced more than a week ahead of the biggest sales day of the year. The official Black Friday shopping day is November 25, but Amazon is keen on pushing discounts through their portal as soon as possible. This year, they’re announcing several deals that you can only get if you have Alexa, the virtual assistant on their Echo devices.
From today, November 18, until November 21, there are several amazing offers that you can only take advantage of through Alexa. Starting today, you can ask “Alexa, what are your deals?”, and she’ll list out the best deals for you based on what you’re looking for.
What deals are we talking about? Here are just a few that Business Wire has posted on their site:
Save $50 on an Amazon Tap – say, “Alexa, order an Amazon Tap”
Save $80 on a 32-inch Samsung 1080p LED TV – say, “Alexa, order a Samsung TV”
Save $30 on a Sphero Star Wars BB-8 App controlled robot – say, “Alexa, order a Star Wars robot”
Save $15 on a Philips Hue LED Starter Kit with 2 Bulbs & Hue Bridge Hub – works with Amazon Alexa – say, “Alexa, order a Hue Starter Kit”
Save $80 on Beyerdynamic Limited Edition Headphones – say, “Alexa, order studio headphones”
Save $130 on a 10-piece All-Clad stainless steel cookware set – say, “Alexa, order an All-Clad cookware set”
Save $10 on LEGO Classic Large Creative Brick Box – say, “Alexa, order a Lego Classic Brick Box.”
Save 30% on a 48-pack of Amazon Basics AA batteries – say, “Alexa, order AA batteries”
Save 35% on Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles – say, “Alexa, order Lindor truffles”
The deals are open from today through Cyber Monday (November 21) and this is just a sample of the kind of deals you’ll be seeing. But that’s not all. They’ll continue to rollout more and more deals not only through Monday, but right through the end of the holiday season.
Here’s what Amazon’s Assaf Rosen, Vice President Voice Shopping (No, really, that’s his job title!) says about this year’s special Alexa-only deals:
“This is the first holiday that Prime members will be able to use their voice to shop and we’re excited to offer exclusive deals they won’t find anywhere else. Voice shopping with Alexa takes the hassle out of the holidays, giving customers the ability to order from millions of items simply by saying the word. And, the fun doesn’t stop after this weekend. Make sure to ask ‘Alexa, what are your deals?’ every day because we’ll have exciting deals throughout the holiday season and beyond.”
These Alexa-only deals are only open to Prime members, so if you’re not yet a member, you can take up a trial membership before you pay the annual or monthly fee, and you can do it while you purchase an item.
