Get the best deals on Amazon Prime Day by shopping with Alexa


Amazon Echo

Amazon Echo owners will benefit more than most this Amazon Prime Day.

The second Prime Day is coming up on July 12, and Amazon has promised that it will be the biggest sales day it's ever had. Yes, even bigger than Black Friday.

Millions of people will be logging in on their PCs and smartphones to take advantage of an expected 100,000 deals this coming Tuesday. But there could be a better way to do it.

Come Prime Day, US customers with an Amazon Echo, Dot, or Tap will be able to use Alexa - Amazon's voice-activated assistant - to access exclusive deals.

Users can simply ask "Alexa, what are your Prime Day deals?", and they'll get a rundown of all the latest offers. These deals will include a Dromida Kodo UAV Quadcopter for $25, which is a 38 percent saving. There's also a Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler for $40 (47 percent off), and an Amazon Tap for $79 (39 percent off).

Alexa users will also be able to get a $10 discount on their first Amazon order of $20 or more using one of the speakers.

Both deals start today, and run through to the end of Amazon Prime Day.

The biggest difference between Prime Day and, say, Black Friday is in the title - only Amazon Prime members can access the deals. However, those on a Prime free trial can also participate, so now would be a good time to sign up.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could take advantage of this in the UK? Eh, Amazon?
