“Alexa, what are my deals?” – Voice Shopping with Alexa

Did you know that Alexa can help us to save some money when shopping Amazon? All we have to do is to ask her:

  • Alexa, what are my deals?

Please note, Amazon’s Voice Shopping Terms & Conditions currently do not list any exclusive Alexa deals. Alexa will come back with a selection of “Deals of the Day.”

For a full list of all Amazon Echo deals, bundles, accessories, and current savings, please bookmark our post: 

We are updating these posts four times a day, check back for new deals.

How to enable Voice Shopping

Chances are, that you have voice shopping not enabled yet. When you say:

  • Alexa, what are my deals?

she might reply: “If you’d like to order something, go to settings in the Alexa app and enable voice purchasing.”

Select who can make purchases with Alexa Voice Shopping.
  • Open “Settings” (from the “More” menu in the Alexa app)
  • Tap on “Account Settings”
  • Tap on “Voice Purchasing”
  • Select “Purchase controls”
  • And select who should be able to make purchases:
    • Only recognized voices
    • Anyone with a 4-digit voice code, or
    • Anyone
  • Since voice purchasing requires valid 1-Click preferences, review your 1-Click settings under Payment Method

Voice Shopping on an Echo Device

  • Alexa, what are my deals?

Alexa will return your Amazon top deal, and we can navigate through the deals with:

  • Alexa, next
  • Alexa, add to cart
  • Alexa, buy it now

Voice Shopping on an Echo Show Device

  • Alexa, what are my deals?

Alexa will open your top deals and tell you the product name and price of the first product. You can swipe through the list or ask for more details:

  • Alexa, show me number two

The Show will display a “buy this”, “add to cart” and “more details” button for every product.

  • Alexa, add number two to my cart

Amazon Alexa with shopping cart and shopping list

Apart from our voice deals, Alexa can manage our shopping list. We can either track it in the Alexa app (More / Lists & Notes / Shopping) or with our voice:

  • Alexa, what’s on my shopping list?
  • Alexa, add <product> to the shopping list
  • Alexa, remove <product> from my shopping list
  • Alexa, clear the shopping list

To manage the Amazon shopping cart we can say:

  • Alexa, what’s in my shopping cart?
  • Alexa, check the price of <product>
  • Alexa, what’s the most popular <product category>?
  • Alexa, add <product> to my cart
  • Alexa, order the products in my cart
  • Alexa, cancel my order
  • Alexa, where’s my stuff?

We can also manage our Fresh and Whole Foods Market carts:

  • Alexa, add <product> to my Fresh cart
  • Alexa, reorder <product> from Fresh
  • Alexa, add <produce> to my Whole Foods cart
  • Alexa, what are my Whole Foods deals?

Conclusion

Alexa voice shopping might not be the most prominent feature of our Echo devices, but it does give us some benefits and convenience.

And, if you’re looking for gift ideas, just ask her:

  • Alexa, find some gift ideas for a … year old

Happy Voice Shopping!

P.S. You can deactivate shopping notifications in the Alexa app, so Alexa won’t reveal any gifts you’ve ordered:
– under More / Settings / Notifications / Amazon Shopping / Say or show item titles
– disable “For items in delivery update” and
– disable “Including items in your shopping cart marked as gifts.”
You can also disable delivery notifications for “Out for delivery” and “Delivered.”
