Update 11/22/17 - Alexa Voice Black Friday deals are now live for Prime Members, and non-Prime members will be able to shop them at midnight EST.
Everyone knows about the benefits of Amazon Prime. You get free 2-day shipping, access to a ton of services, and exclusive deals.
But are you aware of Amazon Voice Shopping deals? You should be!
If you have an Alexa device, you can say "Alexa, order [product]" and she'll find a top-rated Prime-eligible item. She'll place the order with your default credit card and shipping information. If you change your mind, don't sweat it -- you are able to cancel or return your product. If you already know what you want, you can order a specific product with your voice as well.
On top of that, Alexa devices get you access to special, exclusive discounts. You can ask Alexa what her deals are and she'll tell you, or you can see them on the Alexa deals page every day.
Alexa even has exclusive deals on Prime Day and Black Friday. Sometimes that means early access to hot Lightning Deals, and sometimes the deals are only available through Alexa voice shopping.
I personally have scored a great discount once or twice through Alexa shopping. Last year, around Black Friday, I got this awesome KidKraft Penelope dollhouse for $40 through my Echo, which is $60 below the average price!
If this deal sounds good to you, you should know that there are a ton of different devices for all budgets that will work with Alexa Voice shopping. Another plus is that these devices are often discounted. Follow Thrifter on Twitter to be alerted when Amazon Alexa devices are on sale!
You can use Alexa Voice Shopping with the following products:
- Echo Dot
- All-New Echo
- Echo Plus
- Echo Show
- Amazon Tap
- Fire TV Stick
- Fire 7 Tablet
- Fire 8 Tablet
- Fire 10 Tablet
- Dash Wand
If you've never ordered a gift card using Alexa before, you can get a $5 bonus when you order a $25 gift card through Alexa Voice Shopping. Great deals and $5 for free? That's a win in my book.
If there is a Whole Foods near you, you'll be able to snag discounts on Alexa devices starting the week leading up to Black Friday too!
