It seems likely that there will be a number of special discounts this year, with owners of the Alexa-enabled personal assistant hub, the Amazon Echo, able to find out what deals are available days before the rest of the buying public. Eastern time on Monday, July 10, and keeps running for a sum of 30 hours of shopping time.
Despite the Prime Day sale being already attractive enought to draw in new members, Amazon is now running an exclusive membership discount in the United Kingdom.
In 2017, Amazon Prime Day expands to 13 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Spain, Mexico, Japan, Italy, India, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, and Austria. But anyone leveraging Alexa's abilities can start sooner and will be privy to more deals, which Amazon said will include $20 to $50 savings on electronics and peripherals, among other discounts.
Alexa voice orders sound fun.
If you aren't an Amazon fan, never fear because the competition will get in on the sales, too. But when you don't need any info, you can use Tap just like you would any Bluetooth speaker.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2017?
Amazon is also promising "amazing" deals on a variety of TVs, including the Element 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV. Popular products will sell out quickly, and the last thing you want is to miss out because you were checking up on another deal.
We don't yet know much about what the Prime Day offers will be. At the very least, we'd hope for a modest discount to drive sales on this oddball device that's more than a little reminiscent of the Chumby. There are more and more skills being added to Alexa each and every day.
You should expect users to use fewer words and simpler words to find products. If you're a paying member of the service (or have covertly signed up to its 30-day free trial) the company is promising that "hundreds of thousands" of deals will be announced between 10-11 July. However, Prime Day can be tricky, not to mention more than a little overwhelming as Amazon rains down deals from the sky.
According to a news release, Alexa now has more than 100 exclusive deals available for voice shoppers. And she'll list out some of the options.
