Alexa will now tell you when items in your Amazon cart go on sale

Amazon’s Alexa devices will now alert consumers when items they have in their shopping carts are about to go on sale.

The company announced that Alexa devices will notify Prime customers up to 24 hours in advance of upcoming sales on items in their Amazon wish list and shopping cart.

This also included items that were marked “saved for later” on the platform. The feature will work with fourth-generation Echo smart speakers and newer.

If an item is due to be reduced as part of a sale promotion, the Amazon Echo ring will turn yellow when an item goes on sale, so a user knows to ask Alexa to read out their notifications.

Consumers can then ask Alexa to remind them about deals when they’re live or ask the smart device to order items on their behalf.

Amazon said the feature is supposed to help customers save time and prepare for significant sales holidays like Prime Day.

It also increases the reliance on Amazon Echo devices.

In order to make use of the deal recommendations, users must enable the feature in the Alexa app and clicking ‘More’ > ‘Notifications’ > ‘Amazon Shopping’ > ‘Shopping Recommendations’.
