Here's how Alexa owners can get a $10 credit from Amazon

Amazon's Alexa skill count reaches 15000

Watch-A-Deal - Readily track and shop any deal while at home or on-the-go with the Amazon App. To shop with Alexa, customers must be Prime members with default payment and shipping information. Which means you can use Alexa to order you pizza from Dominos, read the latest news from CNN, or even start reading a book from Audible.

According to TechCrunch, Target will not shut down the Cartwheel app, which is more popular than the regular app, but instead offer a gradual transition. Walmart, eBay, Best Buy, Target and Kohl's are expected to have their own sales in the next few days as e-commerce competition heats up.

"Amazon is planning one of its largest total volume TV deals in history with a record level of inventory but once again, the TV deals will likely sell out", the company said in a press release. Items must be exactly the same and now in stock.

It has been confirmed that Amazon will host a Prime Day sale event, but this time, Amazon Prime members will be able to enjoy huge deals for more than just a day. For those who have never used Alexa's voice shopping capabilities-there are a lot of you-Amazon is offering a $10 discount if you make your first purchase between now and Prime Day. At the same time, Amazon has refused to add the company's Prime video service to Apple's set-top box.

Of course, while Amazon is one of the UK's biggest proponents of shopping online, it is not without its critics.

There's no word on exactly what will be on sale for Prime Day, and historically the deals have featured a grab bag of products - not all of which are terribly exciting.

You can start watching deals from 6pm on July 9 - that is, 24 hours in advance of Prime Day. For a limited time when you say "Alexa, sign me up for Prime", the yearly Prime Membership with drop to $79 for the first year.

For example, in the US Macys.com attracted 41% more traffic on Prime Day 2016 than on the prior Tuesday, while traffic was up 20.7% week-on-week at Walmart.com, according to web traffic monitor Hitwise.

In preparation for Prime Day, Amazon is offering four months of Music Unlimited to Prime members for 99p. On July 5, Amazon announced its "voice shopping" theme.

Scott Galloway, the founder of business intelligence firm L2 Inc, has already predicted a future when Amazon will periodically send consumers a box with things it knows the household needs and things it thinks it needs, without any direct input from the consumer.
