I think I tried telling the echo the asin but it just hears it as spelled out numbers and letters so thatís how it searches. Any success?
Some items can't be searched at all

iTunes
Play Store
thanks, couldn't find it because I'm searching from the uk, which for some reason doesn't show many apps.
 Like amex app.. and this one so far. Thanks

I guess all the valid add on hacks should be in one place, not spread across 10boards.
For those who need to find a solution would be able to. ;)

Iíve been doing this for a while with the Echo. It doesnít work on every item though.
are you trying on items that are not available right away? did you have a problem if the item is available on the spot?

Alexa wonít find some items but overall itís a pretty good trick.

IME as long as the item is available right now there is a way to order it through alexa, although sometimes it may be difficult to say it in a way that alexa will catch on(different wording)...

Maybe it showed available but it would have said unavailable at checkout then. But 2-3 times I tried every single way and it would tell me all the results but the add-on.

sometimes it says that the item will be available in a few days/weeks and still let you order it now, in which case it will not come up through alexa...

Iím positive these were in stock items. I have hundreds of orders over the past year but Iíll take a quick look and let you know if I find them.

ETA: obviously there were all deals so either they are back up at non add-on prices or oos.

On the bottom right tap the Alexa and order thru there
This is a great "Hack". I posted it in the comments here and searched DDF to see if it was already mentioned and found it hidden in this merged thread.
Im guessing it was merged to keep it hidden?
Either way, its a great "hack" to use Alexa on an android or iphone to bypass the $25 minimum.

+1 I have always had success meanwhile with adding it to my cart then having asking alexa to order and it asks if I want to order that item from my cart.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Your post seems to be deleted.

@SearchGuy I tried using this trick on my past two orders and had no luck tried every which way, I managed to get a hold of the item but all Alexa offered me was to place in my cart and Check out on the Amazon app.
    I have used this method for tens of items, this is already the 2nd item in a row which I have had no luck when placing an order for orders which are add-ons.

   If someone who has used this method as well doesn't mind confirming that it doesn't work or confirming that it does work it would be greatly appreciated thank you.

@aygart Seems dead this trick when going through alexa (music app), mind trying on your side?
 Try this set of markers for ex,https://www.dansdeals.com/shopping-deals/amazon/add-item-amazonbasics-24-assorted-color-permanent-markers-5-49-amazon/

Thanks
