AN ALEXA smart speaker has the ability to save you money if you program it correctly.
Follow these steps to get the best price on your top items this Prime Day and beyond.
The Amazon line of smart speakers are powerful home improvement tools – the Amazon Echo can answer questions, control lights, play music, and loads more.
Alexa, the Echo’s AI “mind”, can ping users with a notification when items in their cart or on their Wish List go on sale.
The 4th generation Echo smart speaker has been marked down from $49.99 to just $19.99.
The smart speaker is manufactured by Amazon and comes preprogrammed with Alexa.
Only Amazon Prime members can get in on this major discount, which comes just ahead of Prime Day on July 12.
The Verge reported that the Prime Day sale means products made by Amazon will likely see their best price excluding Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
To get small notifications for big-time savings, open the Alexa app and tap the three lines in the lower right corner – this section is labeled “More”.
Navigate to Settings and then tap Notifications.
On the next page, click on Amazon Shopping and scroll to the section marked Shopping Recommendations.
The small section of text should read “Receive personalized recommendations based on your shopping activity.”
Toggle on the tab reading Deal Recommendations.
Going forward, Alexa will notify you of an upcoming sale on a product you’ve shown interest in.
Alexa monitors your Amazon account in three places: the Cart, Wish List, and Save for Later.
Alexa will notify the user of a sale on any product in any of these sections coming within 24 hours.
Business Insider reported that discount notifications are applicable on the latest Echo smart speaker or the Echo Show, which comes with a tablet-like screen.
Amazon Prime Day is a glowing opportunity to get great products at an even better price.
But with Alexa shopping notifications enabled, the deals won’t stop after Prime Day concludes on July 13.
