Amazon Prime members get secret deals all weekend long thanks to Alexa

Amazon’s big week-long Black Friday 2016 sales event kicked off this morning, and it packs hundreds of bargains on all sorts of products. You can find out more in this post from Friday morning, but some of the best deals on Amazon right now are nowhere to be found in that article. Why? Because Amazon is offering secret deals to Prime subscribers all weekend long, and you can only access them using Amazon Alexa on a compatible speaker.

Well, actually, we’ll show you how to check out all of these exclusive offers without having to ask Alexa about them.

Amazon announced in a press release on Friday morning that it’s offering special exclusive deals to Prime members through Amazon Alexa, the retailer’s voice-powered virtual assistant. Using your Alexa-enabled speaker, simply ask “Alexa, what are your deals?” each day from today through Monday, November 21, and Alexa will tell you what’s up. Then you can order right through Alexa.

Of course, if you don’t want to be bothered with all that, you can also just visit this secret deals page on the Amazon website to see every single Prime-exclusive deal each day. Shhh, don’t tell anyone.

Wondering just how good these secret Prime-exclusive deals are? Well, they’re really, really good. Here are a few examples:

To get these prices though, you’ll need to be a Prime subscriber and you have to order through Alexa. If you’re not already an Amazon Prime subscriber, don’t forget that you can sign up for a year of Prime for just $79 instead of $99, today only.
