Amazon: $79 for New Prime Membership with Alexa
- Buy a new Prime membership for only $79 when ordering on an Alexa device
Simply ask Alexa how much it’ll cost for Prime and it’ll give the $79 offer. Say, “Alexa, sign me up for Prime” to order.
This offer won’t work to renew an existing membership, but it will work for someone who had Prime and let it expire and now wants to pay for Prime again.
The Fine Print
- Valid on Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show or Amazon Tap
- Expiration unknown
The timing is good with Prime Day coming up. Probably not worth buying Prime just for Prime Day, but if you’re on the fence anyway, now is a time a lot of people will be buying membership. Hopefully Dash Wand (see how to do that here) will also be offering this deal. If you’ve recently signed up for Prime then reader Mike was able to get refunded the difference.
$79 is a nice deal, though keep in mind that there are numerous ways to get Prime for below the standard $99 fee. Here is the list of currently available deals on Prime:
- Low-income households can pay $5.99 per month
- Students can get six months free thanks to Sprint (our affiliate link)
- JetBlue is offering 3,000 miles
- Ibotta offering $20 Amazon gift card
- Topcashback is offering $15 cash back
- $79 for New Amazon Prime Member with Alexa
