Amazon's Prime Day shopping event will take place from October 10 through October 11, and we know that the Alexa voice assistant can be used to find amazing deals with deep discounts.

This isn't the first time Amazon has employed Alexa to help with Prime Day. In previous years, the voice assistant could be used to find deals and shop when spoken to on an Echo smart speaker.

Prime Day, which starts at 3 AM on October 10 and runs for 48 hours, will include discounts on a vast range of products across many of Amazon's retail departments. There will be savings on fashion, home, beauty, and toys, plus money off Amazon's Echo and Fire TV devices.

In some cases, the deals have already begun. Amazon is currently offering up to 55% savings on select Alexa-enabled devices, including the all-new Echo Show 5 (3rdGen), and all-new Echo Pop. Here is the list of deals that will be going live over the next few days ahead of Prime Day:

You can visit the Amazon blog to learn more about these deals and Amazon Prime Day.

How to use Alexa to find Prime Day deals

Once Prime Day has begun, you can speak to Alexa to find deals relevant to you. Just say: "Alexa, what are my Prime Day deals?" and the virtual assistant will read out offers it thinks will be relevant to you. You can then place an order by using voice commands.

Here are other ways you can use Alexa to find deals on Amazon Prime Day now and on October 10-11:

  • As you prepare for Prime Day, note Alexa can let you know when the device you want to buy goes on sale. Just ask, “Alexa, how do I set alerts for Prime Day?” and it will encourage you to save the item to your Cart, Wish List, or Saved for Later in the Amazon app, website, or on their Echo device. Alexa will send notifications when that device goes live on the deal day. Just ask, “What are my notifications?” and don’t miss any hot deals.
  • Browse Deals & Discounts: Customers can browse millions of deals by using voice commands like “Alexa, show me deals” on Echo Show or “Alexa, find me the best discounts on the hottest fashion accessories.”
  • Personalized Recommendations: Based on one’s shopping history and real customer ratings, shoppers can find top products by asking, “Alexa, what are the top-rated kitchen gadgets on sale?” Not sure what to buy––ask Alexa to share the best deals by saying, “Alexa, tell me about today’s best deals.”

If you haven't used Prime before, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial; do that now, and you'll be able to benefit from all of its benefits right through Prime Day 2023, and then have the option to cancel it just before the free month ends.

If you choose to keep your membership after the 30-day trial has expired, Amazon Prime is priced at $14.99 a month or $139 annually, depending on how you want to pay.

You can also get free credit by signing up for the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card. If approved, eligible Prime members will instantly receive a $100 Amazon gift card. Using the card also earns you 3 percent back at Whole Foods Market and, plus 2 percent back at restaurants, gas stations, and drug stores, among other retailers.

As well as using Alexa to grab a Prime Day bargain, Amazon will be rolling out discounts across its physical stores too. These include Whole Foods Market, Amazon 4-star, Amazon Books, Amazon Pop Up, and Amazon Fresh.

So remember, as you prepare for Amazon Prime Day, Alexa can do the shopping for you without having to lift a finger to get the best deals on smart devices and more this July. Just say, “Alexa, buy it for me" and it will be done.
