Amazon's first Alexa-only shopping deals are starting to roll out
Amazon has already stoked the holiday consumption fire by rolling out a bunch of deals well ahead of Black Friday, but this weekend's shopping opportunity comes with a giant catch: starting November 18 and running through the 21st, certain deals are only available if you order through Alexa, the voice-controlled virtual assistant that runs on Amazon's Echo speakers and Fire TV products.Over the next few days, if you ask Alexa "Alexa, what are your deals?" you'll be able to order a variety of different products at a discount, including a Philips Hue LED lightbulb starter kit ($15 off), a Sphero Star Wars BB-8 bot ($40 off), a 10-piece All-Clad stainless steel cookware set ($130 off), a $60 discount on a TCL smart TV, and $50 off Amazon's own Tap Bluetooth speaker. Amazon says that other deals, not yet announced, will be available throughout the rest of November and December.
