Amazon Prime Day is only on the 12th and 13th of July, but the ecommerce giant has released an early offer for some items in the Echo line. Those who don’t want to wait for the promotional date can now buy headphones and speakers with the Alexa virtual assistant at discounts of up to 33%.
These devices are called smart because they can be voice activated to execute a series of commands and connect with other equipment in the house. For example, you can say, “Alexa, turn on the light,” and the light bulbs in your house will light up. You can also ask the virtual assistant for the weather forecast, the main news of the day and she will tell you everything.
Offers are valid until next Wednesday (13) and exclusive to Amazon subscribers. For those who do not subscribe to the service, it is possible to subscribe and test for 30 days free.
During this period, you will have access to all discounts and subscriber benefits, such as free shipping throughout Brazil on several purchases, and the Prime Video catalog of movies and series. After the trial period, an amount of R$ 14.90 per month is charged.
