What to expect on Amazon Prime day

What to expect on Amazon Prime day

Days before Prime Day commences, Amazon is upping the ante once again. Amazon is offering different deals in the lead-up to the big day. Fortunately, Amazon has some options for time-strapped shoppers. So if you want to avoid ending up empty handed, or impulse-buying something you didn't really want, follow our five tips below.

From having a look at the deals, there's nothing that is jumping out at us that is a must-have deal so far. And if you want to be entered into a $5,000 sweepstakes, simply ask Alexa to reveal to you each day's new deals.

About 58 percent of consumers surveyed by Market Track said they plan to shop Prime Day sales this year, while only 34 percent said they participated last year. The prospect of voice shopping has flopped with most Amazon users, even those who otherwise enjoy Alexa's features.

The first round of deals will include a discount for Prime members who haven't yet tried Amazon's music streaming service. Consumer Intelligence Research Partners said in January that 8.2 million U.S. Amazon customers now have Alexa-enabled Echo devices, according to data mailed to Retail Dive. The assistant will read out the products that are on sale. There are more and more skills being added to Alexa each and every day.

Don't worry if you're away from your desktop all day.

The app has a "Today's Deals" section, which will show you what's on offer.

Prime day is not limiting customers to physical discounts only, as Amazon is introducing unlimited one-day and same-day delivery in with their deals.

With the fledgling voice-activated digital assistant space heating up, Amazon has today announced a number of interesting tidbits for those investing in its Alexa ecosystem. Deals will only be available as stocks last, the firm noted. Once it's at 100% it's gone... sometimes.

But even if your small business doesn't sell products on Amazon, the news about Prime Day could still provide an important lesson.

Prime Day is officially July 11, but the sale will start earlier than that.

"Products go out of stock quickly, and the fear of losing out means we're more likely to buy on impulse", it warned.
