Use Alexa to get $10 from Amazon for Free

posted in: Alexa, Amazon, Echo | 0

Everybody shops on Amazon.  If you don’t, you’re kind of weird.  If you buy the same thing over and over again, there’s no reason you shouldn’t get $10 for free from Amazon*, provided you own an Alexa device.  Here’s how it works:

  1. First, you have to be an Amazon Prime member to get this deal.  If you’re not a member yet, you can sign up for a free 30 day trial here.
  2. Pick an item from your order history that cost more than $10.  The credit only applies to items that cost more than $10 before tax and shipping.
  3. Turn to your favorite Alexa device and say “Alexa, reorder <your item name here>” or “Alexa, order more <your item name here>”
  4. Alexa will tell you that she found said item in your order history and the current price.  She will then ask if you would like to buy it.  Say yes.
  5. Within three days, you should see a $10 credit in your Amazon account.  Note, this will not be refunded to your method of payment, it is an Amazon gift card applied to your account.

*You can only use this deal one time, and Alexa will not tell you if you’ve already used it, so you’ll have to track this yourself
