Amazon's Voice Shopping Weekend Gives Huge Discounts For Ordering Through Alexa
On Friday, Nov. 18, Amazon launched its first ever voice-shopping weekend with deep discounts offered exclusively for those shopping through Alexa.
The online retail giant is currently offering huge discounts to its Prime customers if they use the intelligent voice assistant Alexa to order items via the Echo, Echo Dot, Tap, Fire TV, and Fire HD tablet. The voice-shopping event will run through Monday, Nov. 21.
Making online purchases via Amazon's Alexa is as easy as saying "Alexa, order (item]." Once the voice assistant finds the right product - any from a wide range of electronics, home appliances, toys, wearable tech, apparel, accessories, and many more - just say "Yes" when Alexa asks if she should go ahead with the purchase.
"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," Assaf Ronen, vice president of Amazon voice shopping, said in a statement.
Amazon says that it will offer Alexa-exclusive deals to its Prime customer everyday throughout November and December, including on the highly anticipated annual shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. To learn about these daily deals, customers need only ask Alexa "What are your deals?"
The retailer also confirmed that customers who avail of an Alexa deal worth at least $10 between now and Cyber Monday will receive a $5 Amazon gift card.
Fox News notes that Amazon customers must be Prime members with the "1-Click" ordering option enabled to get access to these deals.
According to Amazon, the Alexa-exclusive deals include:
$50 off on Amazon Tap ("Alexa, order an Amazon Tap.")
$30 off on a Sphero Star Wars BB-8 app-controlled toy ("Alexa, order a Star Wars robot.")
$80 off on Beyerdynamic Limited Edition Headphones ("Alexa, order studio headphones.")
$80 off on a 32-inch Samsung 1080p LED TV ("Alexa, order a Samsung TV.")
