Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) Offers Early Prime Day Deals For Alexa Users

Days before Prime Day commences, Amazon is upping the ante once again. If you've never used voice shopping before, you can also get a $10 credit on your Amazon account by taking advantage of any current voice shopping deal by the end of the day on July 9.

But wait, there's one more thing to consider: Even if everything lines up for you, it's worth asking yourself whether you're genuinely going to use this thing you want to buy, or whether you're just caught up in the inevitable hype surrounding Prime Day. And if you do so right now via your Echo device you'll be asked to pay only $79 (for a year) instead of $99.

There's ample reason for Amazon to push Alexa in these ways - the voice assistant feature is on pace to help provide approximately $10 billion in revenues by 2020 and be a "mega-hit", according to a note published this past spring by investment bank RBC Capital Markets.

Kicking off at 6pm on 10 July across the UK, US, Japan, Canada, Spain, Italy, Germany, France and Austria, the third annual sales event is set to be the company's biggest yet, and will end at midnight on 11 July. If you want to get into the Echo life, this would be a good time to do so.

When you tell Alexa to "order" something, Amazon automatically selects the best-priced product that ships with Prime. If Amazon continues its upward trend, Prime Day 2017 could be the best sale yet.
