Amazon Promotes Voice Shopping with New Exclusive Alexa Deals

Adjust Comment Print

More than half of consumers don't have interest in these voice deals because they don't trust Alexa to get orders right or just find shopping by voice inconvenient, the report said, citing a shopper survey by DealNews.

Voice shoppers will also get access to "more than 100" exclusive pre-Prime Day offers beginning July 5, Amazon says.

Amazon will drip-feed deals from 6pm on 10 July and throughout 11 July, usually with countdown timers to tell you when they will be available.

So to rewind a minute, we'll answer your first question: No, you can't shop these incredible Amazon deals unless you're a Prime member. However, Prime Day can be tricky, not to mention more than a little overwhelming as Amazon rains down deals from the sky.

Want to know when Prime Day 2017 begins so you can score this deal, as well as what other hot tech you can expect to receive massive discounts? We'll keep a running list of pre-Prime Day deals as well as deals of the day over on our hub.

This year, Amazon guarantees the markdown day will highlight countless arrangements for Prime individuals.

Much like a year ago, there's said to be thousands of deals up for grabs.

It's time for "Black Friday in July" with Amazon's third-annual Prime Day sale.

This is not the first time Amazon has attempted to leverage Prime Day to push customers to try voice-based shopping. If you've got a lot of extra stock or just want to boost sales quickly, creating a unique shopping holiday for your business could be a great strategy.

We have a cheat sheet coming next Monday at 2 pm ET (Seven hours before Amazon Prime Day starts), to give you highlights on what smart home, VR and other gadgets will be on sale, and how to buy them.

Even if something in your wishlist doesn't go on sale, you can still check in to see if the price drops later in the year.

Last year, some of the top deals were for Amazon products, such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick and Amazon Kindle Fire.

You can only get one entry per day, and Amazon says you can stream for any amount of time to qualify. A good tip is to use the "Watch this Deal" button on upcoming deals to make sure you don't miss them. At that point, consider downloading the Amazon App.

Like any retailer holding a giant sale, some of the deals Amazon is offering are incredible price cuts on stuff you want.
