retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Amazon announced this morning that it is offering Prime members the ability to access special holiday deals by using its Echo/Alexa system.

The process is simple. Prime members with the system say, "Alexa, what are today's deals?" Alexa says what they are, and asks if you want to buy them. If you say yes, the order is placed.

According to the announcement, "First ever voice shopping weekend includes deals like Amazon Tap for $79.99, a 32-inch Samsung 1080p LED TV for $119 and $15 off a Philips Hue LED starter kit that works with Alexa. Exclusive Alexa deals start today through Monday -- customers who purchase an Alexa deal at $10 or more in value between now and Cyber Monday will also receive a bonus $5 Amazon gift card."

I tried it this morning, and it worked perfectly. The products I ordered will be delivered on Sunday. Who could ask for anything more?
