When Amazon announced its slate of Black Friday specials (or at least the big time “Turkey 5” deals that weren’t part of the two-month-long sales celebration that started Nov. 1), it teased the debut of a cool wrinkle within the online shopping experience.
Owners of Alexa-enabled devices connected to Amazon Prime accounts will soon have access to exclusive deals if they ask for them.
From Nov. 18-21, Amazon is holding the first ever “voice shopping weekend.” It’s simple: just say “Alexa, what are your deals?” within range of a connected device (or if you’re boring just visit the Voice Shopping Weekend page) to find out what’s on sale.
Initially, shoppers were promised 70 Alexa-exclusive discounts without any details. As the sale is underway, some of them have come to light, along with exactly how to ask for them:
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 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.
This is the first holiday that Prime members will be able to use their voice to shop and were excited to offer exclusive deals they wont find anywhere else, Amazon Vice President of Voice Shopping Assaf Ronen said in the announcement. “And, the fun doesnt stop after this weekend. Make sure to ask Alexa, what are your deals? every day because well have exciting deals throughout the holiday season and beyond.
With the need for a full cabinet of voice shopping officials and plans for a big splash in the holiday season, asking for your deals is sure to become a seasonal tradition. Just don’t use your Echo to order a Tap Alexa might get jealous.
