If you're already using Alexa, and plan on doing a good chunk of your holiday spending on Amazon, you may as well earn some extra store credit in the process .

Kyle James at Rather Be Shopping tipped us off to a few ways you can "hack" Alexa and get free Amazon credits:

"Shoppers don't know about it simply because Amazon really doesn't advertise it," he told us. "I couldn't find a link to either Alexa discount from their homepage."

First, you can get a $10 Amazon credit when you re-order any item over ten bucks with your Amazon Alexa. This doesn't have to be something you've ordered using Alexa, either. It can be anything from your Amazon order history.

In his post, James explains exactly how to do this, because you do have to ask Alexa to "order more Item X." When you do, you should see a $10 credit in your Amazon account within the next few days.

You can also earn more credits by ordering a gift card using Alexa and then reloading that gift card later.

"For what amounts to about 3-4 minutes of your time you can score a quick $15 in Amazon credits," James said. "It's free money...so after you ask Alexa to talk like Yoda, why not let her show you the money too."
