For the first time on Prime Day, Amazon is offering Alexa-only deals. According to their website, the voice-activated sales are only available to Prime members with an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Dash Wand, and compatible Fire tablets. Shoppers buying any of these products that are $20 or more can also get a $10 credit. Consumers can simply say “Alexa, order a handheld spiralizer” or “Alexa, order a laser cat toy” to get the special deals.
