This was the Telegraph's personal finance reporter Amelia Murray's verdict: "The Amazon card isn't the most generous of reward cards and the redeemed points can only be spent buying goods on the site".

On July 10, the e-commerce giant will kick off this year's Prime Day - a yearly event in which Amazon slashes prices on a wide, sometimes comical, variety of items for its Prime membership customers.

Amazon Music Unlimited is available on all Amazon Music compatible devices including Alexa-enabled devices like Amazon Echo, Fire devices, iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Sonos players and more.

Prime Members should keep an eye on Amazon's Prime Day page to see early offers and stay on top of big sales when they start on the 10th. Available on the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Echo Show, Amazon Fire HD tablet and Amazon Fire TV, it's as simple as saying, 'Alexa, order [product name]' - Alexa will find a well-priced product that ships with Prime. If you're a paying member of the service (or have covertly signed up to its 30-day free trial) the company is promising that "hundreds of thousands" of deals will be announced between 10-11 July.

"There's a big impetus to get an Echo in the hands of people, considering that, if you look at the Amazon Echo buyer metrics, we know that the Amazon Echo buyer makes purchases more frequently, and their spend per buyer is twice as much as the average Amazon buyer once they have one", Andy Mantis, EVP of NPD Group's Checkout Tracking, told Retail Dive a year ago.

Save $6 on Greenies dog treats, original flavor, 27 oz. - say, "Alexa, order Greenies dog treats".

Amazon is once again offering up exclusive Prime Day deals to owners of an Alexa-powered device. " followed by something like: "Alexa, order a Bose Soundlink III". Popcorn lovers would love to know that they can get their favorite Wickedly Prime Sweet n' Cheesy Popcorn Mix at a 50% discount.

For instance, say "Alexa, order Haribo Gummi Bears". Eastern Time on July 10.

For example, you can cosplay Chewbacca (or Chewbacca Mom) on the cheap by saying "Alexa, order a Chewbacca mask", to save 20 percent, which knocks the mask down to $17.59. Popular products will sell out quickly, and the last thing you want is to miss out because you were checking up on another deal. Some devices may be worth a punt if the price is right, but some products we test aren't worth a penny of your hard-earned cash.

Prime Day's mid-July date was no accident - hooking customers as Prime members in midsummer makes it easier for them to turn to Amazon for back-to-school and holiday shopping, Misso said.

Amazon's annual day of deals is just around the corner.

The exclusive Alexa deals are limited to the United States for this year. Prime Day lasts until next Wednesday morning, depending on where you live in the world.
