Online giant gives ‘voice shoppers’ first dibs on Prime Day deals


Days before Prime Day commences, Amazon is upping the ante once again.

Starting Wednesday, July 5, Alexa shoppers will have access to more than 100 exclusive deals on Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Amazon Tap, Fire TV or compatible Fire tablets. Voice shoppers will also get first dibs on select Prime Day deals on July 10, between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. PST — two hours before the general public, according to Amazon.

“We have deals on everything from smart home products to devices, chocolates and more starting today and going all the way through July 17,” said Assaf Ronen, VP voice shopping. “Prime members have asked, ‘Alexa, what are your deals?’ more than three million times since we launched Alexa deals last year, and we’re thrilled to deliver even better deals this year.”

Since voice shopping is a benefit exclusively reserved for Prime members, Amazon is giving its non-Prime Alexa users another perk. Shoppers that use the digital voice assistant to sign up for Prime will get a $20 dis-count on a year-long subscription ($79 instead of the usual $99 member-ship fee). The promotion is only available for a limited time, according to Amazon.

The company is also offering a $10 credit for any orders purchased before July 10.
