Amazon's first ever voice-shopping weekend kicks off today with Alexa-exclusive deals for Prime members.
Through Nov. 21, ask the intelligent personal assistant for daily deals, or go online to see a list of the day's offers. Order using your voice on Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Fire HD tablet, or Fire TV.
It's as simple as saying "Alexa, order [product]." Once she finds the right device—a 32-inch Samsung 1080p LED TV, a Sphero Star Wars BB-8 robot, Philips Hue LED Starter Kit—just say "Yes" to buy it.
Customers must be Prime members with "1-Click" ordering enabled in order to gain access to these deals.
Whether doing your daily shopping (picking up shampoo and conditioner, scissors, and cotton swabs at reduced prices) or filling up festive stockings (games and chocolates are available on the cheap), remember to ask Alexa "What are your deals?"
Customers can even use Alexa to purchase more Alexa-compatible devices, such as the Amazon Tap portable Bluetooth speaker, on sale today for $79 (retail price $129).
"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.
But "the fun doesn't stop after this weekend," Ronen said, tipping additional deals through the holiday season—with more Alexa-exclusive bargains on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, "and every day in November and December," according to Amazon.
Folks who purchase an Alexa deal worth $10 or more between now and Cyber Monday also receive a bonus $5 Amazon gift card.
If you've not yet signed up for two-day shipping and unlimited access to video, music, photos, and books, now's your chance: Prime is available to new users for $79 today only, from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. ET. The limited-time promotion celebrates the launch of Amazon's new original series, The Grand Tour.
