Alexa Voice Ordering: 50% off Elements 15 Photoshop/Premiere combo makes it $62.50

If you have a compatible Amazon hardware device or app, you can place orders with your Voice, using Alexa, and get some exclusive Alexa Voice Ordering discounts. One such offer running at the moment is 50% off the Adobe Photoshop Elements 15 & Premiere Elements 15 bundle. Its current price is $125, so half off would make it $62.50.

The price of the software can change at any time, so that should be 50% off of whatever the future-current price will be. You can only get this discount with Alexa Voice Ordering, not with a web browser. Expiration dates are not mentioned on that page, so the offer is good as long as you see it there.

At the same page, there’s also a $12 off promotion on the Corel PaintShop Pro X9 software. The current price is $42, so the discount will drop it to $30. Again, the price of the software can change at any time, the discount is $12 off of the future-current price.

This expired: And speaking of Corel, but unrelated to Alexa Voice ordering, a lightning deal of the Amazon Gold Box has the Corel PaintShop Pro X9 Ultimate on sale for $40 with free shipping until Tuesday 2:29am ET as a PC Disc (not a download).

PS: it looks like the free shipping over $25 is back on again at Amazon for Prime members, but since it’s been going on and off, we may have to wait for a few days to see where it settles.
