Don’t miss your chance to win big with Amazon’s Alexa Prime Day giveaway

Prime Day, Amazon’s big yearly sales event, is almost here. On Monday, June 16, Prime members can take advantage of a myriad of great deals and other special offers, and Amazon has announced that 2018’s special sale will run through the 17th – officially making it the longest Amazon Prime Day yet. Since it began in 2015 (Amazon’s 20th anniversary), Prime Day has quickly grown to rival other annual sales events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, thanks to deep discounts on name-brand electronics, like the iPad, and other hot items all in one day.

To celebrate its fourth annual Prime Day event, Amazon is offering buyers a chance to score big. The Alexa Prime Day giveaway is open to any Prime member with an Alexa-enabled device to enter to win one of four grand prizes, which include a brand-new 2019 Lexus ES, $50,000 cash, a complete smart home makeover, or a paid trip for two to Seattle. Each household gets up to 10 contest entries, so read on to learn how to enter Amazon giveaways.

How to enter the Alexa Prime Day sweepstakes

For a chance to win big during these Amazon giveaways, all you need is an Alexa-enabled smart device. These include smart hubs like Amazon’s excellent Echo series, which remain among our favorite smart speakers, as well as other Alexa-enabled gadgets like the Sonos One smart speaker and Ecobee smart home devices. However, you will also need to subscribe as an Amazon Prime Member to become an active participant. Though we have yet to hear anyone complain about the package tracking and free shipping that comes along with it.

You can manage to get up to 10 entries into the Alexa Prime Day sweepstakes, and throwing your hat into the ring couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is use your Alexa device to ask select questions or give simple voice commands, and each one places you into the lottery to win. These include:

  • “Alexa, what’s the news?”
  • “Alexa, where’s my stuff?”
  • “Alexa, what are your deals?”
  • “Alexa, play music.”
  • “Alexa, tell me a life hack.”

Alternatively, you can just interact with any of your Alexa-connected smart home devices (like your smart thermostat, lights, speakers, or anything else that’s part of your Alexa smart home ecosystem) and Alexa will automatically enter you into the contest. You can even try clicking through to specific pages for entries if you don’t want to interact with Alexa. It’s that simple to participate. Be sure to check out the Alexa Prime Day sweepstakes page for all the details so you don’t miss your chance to randomly win one of the four grand prizes. Just make sure you check back after Prime Day for a notification letting you know if you won or not.
