Are you ready for Amazon’s Prime Day sales extravaganza?

If you’re not, you should probably ask Alexa to start, since the AI holds the keys to some of the best deals of the promotion.

Prime users looking to take advantage of the annual e-commerce will get their first crack via Alexa. Voice Shopping deals start extra early at 7 p.m. ET on July 10, getting a two-hour edge over everyone else. Online specials start rolling out to everyone else starting at 9 p.m. ET.

There are some great AI-only specials hitting the Echo devices for Prime Day. Just ask Alexa “what are your deals?” Here are some of the deals you’ll be able to order:

If your Prime Day purchase is the first time you’ve used the AI for voice ordering, you’re eligible for an extra $10 credit to your Prime account. You’ll only get that during the early ordering promotion, though, so you’ll have to make up your mind on one of the deals soon.

Alexa won’t just be slinging sales for Prime Day, either. One Amazon customer will win $5,000 worth of Amazon gift cards just by voice shopping. Starting today, asking Alexa “What are your deals?” automatically enters you into a sweepstakes for the gift cards.

If you don’t have an Echo speaker, there’s still a chance to get lucky. Just head to the promotion’s page to enter manually online. The sweepstakes runs past Prime Day through July 19, so you’ll have plenty of time to enter.

Amazon offered some AI voice order exclusives last Prime Day, and gave Alexa owners their own special set of deals over the holiday season with a slate of sales during the Black Friday rush, too.

You’ll have your first shot to scope out some of the deals on the Prime Day page starting July 9 at 9 p.m. ET. The real action starts with Alexa early, then continues through the July 11 main event.
