In terms of savings, Prime Day has become an event that rivals Black Friday and Cyber Monday as other top retailers such as Walmart, Target, eBay, Macys launch competing same-day sales on everything from from tech and electronics to fashion, beauty and home.

Lots of devices are compatible with Voice Shopping, including the Amazon Shopping app for phones, but if you don't want to use it don't worry. If you say no, your helpful shopping sidekick bot will continue reading the next deal. If you're not already, there's never been a better time to sign up. If your favorite accessory maker drops the price of a case or charger you've had your eye on, we'll tell you about it. Note, selecting a one-hour delivery window will cost a bit more.

When does the Prime Day 2019 sale start?

Amazon Prime Day is a fun event that can help you save bundles of cash. You can say "Alexa, order an Echo Dot" if you want to place an order immediately, or you can say "Alexa, add an Echo Dot to my cart" so that you can add several products ahead of your checkout.

However, the force defended its actions, saying it had a duty to enforce the law in relation to the Official Secrets Act (OSA). The US President reacted by lashing out in a series of tweets , calling Darroch a "wacky Ambassador" and "very stupid guy".


You can even ask Alexa to cancel your order or track your shipment after your purchase has gone through.

Essentially, it's a marathon of more sales and deals than you could ever possibly get your hands on and Australians are allowed in on it too. Also, double-check that your payment methods are in order. Thankfully, Amazon has revived the offer for 2019. Partly for the streaming service that lets me watch my favorite campy horror movies and partly because I get free two-day (and sometimes one-day or same-day) shipping on nearly everything I shop for. That's a huge deal considering Amazon normally charges $7.99 a month for Music Unlimited.

Everyone seems to be running an alternative Prime Day sale right now! So far, those include $2 off a rotisserie chicken, buy one, get one free on brown butter cookies and 20% off sliced deli meats (per pounds).
