Prime Day Early Access for Voice Shoppers

Amazon's Alexa skill count reaches 15000

Customers should ask often as deals change frequently at Amazon. Amazon and Alexa are closest to that point today; time will tell if they can work out the kinks. So if you want to avoid ending up empty handed, or impulse-buying something you didn't really want, follow our five tips below. Others still are only good deals when you look at the MSRP, but you can get them cheaper elsewhere.

The deals will differ across each country, but Amazon says there will be a new Amazon Global Store in which Prime members in China and Mexico will be able to shop select deals in other countries.

We're now less than one week away from Amazon's massive annual summertime shopping event, Prime Day 2017.

There will be many more deals popping up in the lead up to Amazon Prime Day itself, and we'll be sharing them right here as well as on our dedicated Apple Deals page.

Amazon has its own Spotify rival, too, in the form of Prime Music. Those who do, will get their first year of Prime at a $20 discount. Instead of paying $100 for Amazon Prime, you'll pay $79. Popular products will sell out quickly, and the last thing you want is to miss out because you were checking up on another deal. So, if you tend to be a compulsive shopper, set yourself a budget, or set a goal for a specific item or class of item you're looking for.

Are there are rules you follow when Prime Day arrives?

The app has a "Today's Deals" section, which will show you what's on offer. (If you're a Prime member, that is.) Here's everything you need to know to take advantage of Prime Day without blowing a small fortune.

With tens of millions of products available to purchase through Alexa, including 3rd Party marketplace products, this is the first major push by Amazon to establish voice shopping to the masses. It's simply a day Amazon chose to create to offer deals and boost sales. Deals will only be available as stocks last, the firm noted.

"Alexa, let's fast-forward to Prime Day".

Prime Day is officially July 11, but the sale will start earlier than that. "We have deals on everything from smart home products to devices, chocolates and more starting today and going all the way through July 17th".
