Bypass $25 Add-On Minimum Using Alexa

It can be a bit of a let down when you see a really good deal on Amazon when you find the item is an add-on and you need a $25 minimum of qualifying purchases to order. There is a way around this!

Set Up Voice-Purchasing

All you need to do is set up voice purchasing and 1-click purchases on Alexa (You can toggle those on under Settings > Voice Purchasing in the Alexa app on your phone).

You can also set up a four-digit PIN code so that not just anyone can use your Echo to order stuff from Amazon.

Make sure that your 1-click settings use the shipping address and credit/debit card that you want to be used with voice ordering through Alexa. To do this. tap on “Payment Settings” at the bottom within the Voice Purchasing screen.

Please note: to have and use Alexa, you must have an Amazon Echo Device or even an Amazon Firestick, Amazon Tap, Fire TV, or Fire Tablet.

Order Your Add-On Item Through Alexa

After you get all set up, you can order your add-on item by saying “Alexa, order (product name).” For example, I want to buy this cheap hairdryer I saw as an add-on with Sierra’s Killer Deals…so I’ll say the name of  “Alexa, order Revlon Compact Travel Hair Dryer

Alexa will tell you the top search result for your inquiry, which if done right, should be the right item you’re looking for. She’ll tell you how much the order will be, including tax, and will ask whether or not you want to buy it. Say “Yes.”

If you have a voice PIN code set up, you’ll say that next, and Alexa will place your order with no $25 minimum required.
