Black Friday is dawning upon us and several retailers have announced deals for the holiday season. Amazon has announced some pre-Black Friday deals for this year but customers have to say magic phrases to get these deals.
On Friday, Amazon announced that Amazon Prime customers will be able to enjoy the pre-Black Friday 2016 deals from Nov. 18 through Nov. 21. The retailer also announced this is the first-ever voice shopping weekend.
Customers can take advantage of these deals only if they own a device with Alexa, Amazon's intelligent personal assistant. Each day, customers can visit www.amazon.com/alexadeals and simply ask "Alexa, what are your deals?"
Assaf Ronen, the VP of Voice Shopping at Amazon, says that voice shopping makes it easier for customers to shop this holiday season. Customers can search and order for products simply by saying a word.
