Amazon Add-on Items can be purchased through Alexa by themselves

alexa-add-on-item

A Reddit user by the name of darkcellmp has discovered that if you ask Alexa to order an add-on item from Amazon, an order will be placed for that single item, even though the order total doesn’t meet the $25 minimum that is usually required when purchasing add-on items. If you’re a Prime member, you won’t be charged for shipping either, since all add-on items are technically eligible for free Prime shipping. So the next time you find yourself needing an add-on item, but don’t want to buy anything else, place the order through Alexa.

    Isn’t there an Alexa app for Android or PC? Can that be used?

    Thanks for the info, Elias! I ordered a $2.47 add-on item last night through my Echo Dot and it worked like a charm.

    Tried ordering an item today, and Alexa said she can’t order it but added it to my shopping list instead (not cart, but list). I think this benefit is gone now.
