Want some secret deals? Ask Alexa and order with your voice.

This story is part of Gift Guide, our year-round collection of the best gift ideas.

You know what time it is, and everyone knows where to look for most Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals at this point. The ads have been out for a week and the shopping season is now kicked into overdrive, with offers from all over. But did you know Amazon has a secret stash of Cyber Monday deals it reserves for those who own an Amazon Echo or another Alexa-enabled gadget? Every year there are some truly great Black Friday deals you can only get when you ask Alexa to order them for you, and this year is no different.

Plus, here are the best Amazon deals we’ve found overall. And have a roundup of random Amazon impulse-purchases and deals that are so good they’ll likely sell out, too.

Live now, you are able to ask Alexa on either an Echo or the Echo app on your phone to order any of the deals below and get them at the exclusive prices confirmed by Amazon. Just say, “Alexa, order…” and add the name of one of these products below.

  • Kasa 1,000-lumen color-changing smart bulb: $5 (save $18)
  • Blink Mini indoor security camera (black): $20 (save $10)
  • Blink Mini indoor security camera (white): $20 (save $10)

For now, that’s the complete list. We’ll be updating this if more appear, but for now it appears these three deals will be available through to Cyber Monday, Nov. 28, unless they sell out. While the list of Alexa-only deals isn’t particularly long this year, the discounts are far better than you’ll find directly on Amazon. Each of these deals are single-use, so you won’t be able to stock up on $5 lightbulbs unless you have a lot of friends who don’t want them and can order for you.

If you’re looking for other killer secret deals, keep an eye on our Black Friday and Cyber Monday live blog and be sure to sign up for our secret Cyber Monday deals text platform to have the best delivered right to your phone.
