Today only, if you use Alexa to order an Amazon Tap, you’ll receive a $50.99 discount, bringing the price down to just $79. That’s the lowest price the Tap has ever been by a longshot. The cheapest the Tap has ever been before today was $109.99 a month ago. Additionally, if ordering the Amazon Tap is your first Alexa order, you’ll receive an additional $10 off, bringing the price down to $69. Simply say “Alexa, order an Amazon Tap” to an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Amazon Tap and Alexa will verify the discounted price before asking you to confirm the order. This promotion is technically not meant to work through Alexa on the Fire TV, but it does seem to be possible, although, it’s very hit or miss. Sometimes when I ask Alexa on the Fire TV to order the Tap, I see the discounted price, then a few seconds later when I ask again, I see the regular price. There seems to be a separate listing, with a different Amazon product ID, for the discounted Amazon Tap, so it appears to be a matter of getting the Fire TV to select the discounted special listing. Be sure to keep an eye on the Alexa Prime Day Deals page for additional Alexa-only deals.
