Amazon is kicking off its second annual Prime Day early for Echo, Dot and Tap owners.
Starting today, and running through Prime Day on July 12, Prime members will receive $10 off their first purchase on any eligible order over $20 when they shop using Amazon's Alexa voice assistant.
On Prime Day, more exclusive deals can be accessed by asking, “Alexa, what are your Prime Day deals?”
“The day has come where you no longer have to visit a screen to shop. I can be standing in my kitchen, when I realize I am almost out of coffee and simply say, ‘Alexa, order Starbucks coffee’ and it shows up at my door within two days.” said Assaf Ronen, voice shopping VP. “Our Alexa speech science engineers have made something so incredibly challenging appear effortless to customers. And so we are excited for Prime members to try it.”
Also starting today, Prime members are being offered these three exclusive deals via Alexa:
• “Alexa order a drone” and get a Dromida Kodo UAV Quadcopter for $25 (38 percent off, through July 12 or while supplies last);
• “Alexa order a griddler” and get a Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler for $40 (47 percent off, through July 12 or while supplies last); and
• “Alexa order an Amazon Tap” and get an Amazon Tap for $79 (39 percent off, today only, while supplies last).
