Amazon has begun stoking the holiday purchasing spree by offering some deals only on orders through Alexa.
Use Alexa For Deals
Amazon has started rolling out several deals much before Black Friday. However, there is a big catch beginning from November 18th till the 21st Nov. Some of the deals will be available only if users order it using Alexa. Alexa is the virtual assistant running on Echo of Amazon as well as products of Fire TV.
Users of Alexa have been allowed to order items on Amazon using the voice assistant from the time it launched its Echo speaker. Many customers were also allowed to make Prime Now requests using Alexa earlier on. However, the exclusive voice shopping opportunity for this weekend is the first of its kind, where Amazon allows both Prime users and the Alexa users to get discounts, which cannot be received through the site or the mobile application of the company. This is evidence of the company’s vision regarding Alexa, as they aim at using Alexa as a legitimate platform for shopping. It has also been done to offer incentive to Alexa users to use the voice assistant for shopping.
Deals and Discounts
Users can ask Alexa about the deals and then order different products for discounts. They can order a Philips Hue, LED bulb starter kit offering a discount of $15 or a TCL smart TV with a discount of $60 and several others. There are still more deals that have not yet been announced and will be offered for the rest of this month and for December.
