Alexa's 8th birthday: Amazon is celebrating with deep discounts on Amazon products

What you need to know about Alexa's birthday

For someone who's just turning 8, Alexa is pretty smart and can do a lot of amazing things. The good news is, at 8, Alexa is still very obedient and hasn't gotten into those rebellious teen years yet: no mumbling or complaining. To celebrate, Amazon is having a special birthday event where you can get select products, such as Echo devices and Fire TVs, at substantial savings.

When is Alexa's birthday?

Currently, Alexa is 7 years old. Amazon introduced the technology to the world on Nov. 14, 2014. This is recognized as Alexa's birthday.

When is Amazon celebrating Alexa's birthday?

Alexa's birthday celebration has already begun. Like most of us, Alexa prefers a birthday that lasts longer than one day, so this year, the festivities started on Oct. 26 and will last until Nov. 13.

How is Amazon celebrating Alexa's birthday?

Amazon is celebrating Alexa's birthday with sales on select products such as Alexa devices, security cameras and TVs. The tricky part is these products go off sale at different times throughout the event. To make sure you don't miss a thing, we've listed some of the company's top deals, along with the last day the product is on sale.
