We’re still almost a week away from Amazon Prime Day 2017, but as we mentioned a couple of days ago, the deals are starting well before then. Today, for example, Alexa voice deals have kicked in and there are some good savings to be had.
For non-Prime members – and you have to be a Prime member to get most Prime Day deals – you can sign-up for Amazon Prime using your voice and an Alexa-equipped device and save $20 off your first year. Instead of paying $100 for Amazon Prime, you’ll pay $79. That’s not bad. Just say, “Alexa, sign up for Prime.”
To hear the full line-up of Alexa voice deals, ask your Echo, “Alexa, what are your deals?” We’ve also included some specific items below that are discounted starting today.
- Save $50 on Bose Soundlink Bluetooth speaker III – say, “Alexa, order Bose Soundlink three.”
- Save $20 on Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus 2nd Generation – works with Alexa – say, “Alexa, order Philips Lightstrip Plus.”
- Save $7 on Wemo Mini smart plug – say, “Alexa, order Wemo Mini Smart Plug.”
Additionally, you can buy the Amazon Echo Dot today for just $29.99. This deal drops the price of the certified refurbished 2nd generation model, but is $15 off. If you want to get into the Echo life, this would be a good time to do so.
