Amazon’s Prime Day is just a few short days away, but it’s not always easy to spend time surfing the web and shopping online when the kids are running around. Luckily you’ve got a secret shopping weapon lurking in your house: Alexa. If you’re itching to learn what kind of Prime Day deals you can score, all you have to do is ask Alexa.

Prime Day launches on Mon. Jul. 15 at 12 a.m. PST/ 3 a.m. EST, but you don’t have to be glued to your phone or your laptop to score some amazing deals. All you have to do is say “Alexa, what are my Prime Day deals?” And your personal assistant will do all the heavy lifting for you.

Over the course of the two-day sale, Amazon says that new deals could launch as often as every five minutes so Alexa’s voice command skills will come in plenty handy sorting through all the new sales.

You don’t have to wait until Monday to put Alexa to work, however. You can begin asking Alexa for the scoop on Prime Day deals over the weekend. You can shop with Alexa on an Echo device starting Sat., Jul. 13 to get early access to select deals on devices.

Don’t have an Alexa-enabled device? There’s no better time to get one than during the Prime Day event when you can score the absolute best deals on devices like the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote for just $14.99 and the Echo for only $49.99.

There will be plenty of savings to be found on a variety of items throughout the sale, with up to $80 off of select Amazon devices, up to 50 percent off of smart TVs and other select electronics, up to 60 percent off of select clothing and accessories, up to 35 percent off of back-to-school brands and other household items, and so much more.
