Pick Up a Refurbished Amazon Echo Dot for just $29.99

MORE: Is Amazon Prime Worth It? New this year, Prime members can enjoy 30 hours of shopping starting early at 9pm ET on Monday, July 10 - with new deals as often as every five minutes.

For the first time, Amazon also announced today that it is providing a $20 discount to anyone who orders a $99 Prime membership with an Alexa-powered device.

"This is going to be the most exciting Prime Day yet for Amazon voice shoppers", said Assaf Ronen, Vice President Voice Shopping.

Amazon advises shoppers to use the Amazon app, where deals will be posted 24 hours ahead of time.

Now that you're equipped to take advantage of Amazon's special voice shopping deals, you're ready to learn about the insane deals the company will offer beginning today.

We're still nearly a week away from Amazon Prime Day 2017, but as we mentioned a couple of days ago, the deals are starting well before then.

"There's a big impetus to get an Echo in the hands of people, considering that, if you look at the Amazon Echo buyer metrics, we know that the Amazon Echo buyer makes purchases more frequently, and their spend per buyer is twice as much as the average Amazon buyer once they have one", Andy Mantis, EVP of NPD Group's Checkout Tracking, told Retail Dive previous year.

Save $50 on Bose Soundlink Bluetooth speaker III - say, "Alexa, order Bose Soundlink three". You'll also need an Alexa speaker from Amazon, because there are a bunch of killer deals that are only available to voice shoppers this year. When you tell Alexa to "order" something, Amazon automatically selects the best-priced product that ships with Prime.

Temptation abounds in a sale the size of Amazon Prime Day, particularly considering the short buying window. Eastern Time on July 10.

Save 35% on Haribo Gummi Bear 12-pack - say, "Alexa, order Haribo Gummi Bears".

First, you need to be a Prime member. That's a great deal, but there is already this 43-inch LG 4K TV that is now 37% off on Amazon. You can purchase a product by telling Alexa to "order" its name. If you can not find them, think about how shoppers may search for your product using their voice.

Try using an Alexa device to find your products. "This is the year Alexa conquers the world". As usual, the deals will only be available to Prime members and some discounts will actually go live on the day before.
