Go to the Skills section of your Alexa app and search for “Daily Samples”. Then you only have to activate the Daily Samples Skill on the overview page. You can also active it on your local Amazon site, under Alexa Skills, by typing the name “Daily Samples”.

You can use the Daily Samples Alexa Skill to participate in attractive samples with desirable prizes just by voice commands. You don’t need to touch, click or do anything with your hand or figures. Just using your voice is enough.

We are making the Daily Samples Alexa Skill available in Germany, U.K., USA, India, Canada and Australia at first. Other countries will soon follow.

When you speak to Alexa, a recording of the question you asked will be sent to Amazon’s server so
that their systems for speech recognition and understanding of natural language can process and
answer your request.
If you use the Daily Samples Skill, Amazon exchanges certain information in text form with the Daily
Wins, but not the actual voice recording. This can include, for example, the content of the question
or the command (e.g. the query regarding particular sample category or brand) or information
you have consented to them using (e.g. the postal address of your Echo device, provided you use it
for the Daily Samples Skill). Based on the information transmitted by Amazon, Daily Samples Skill searches
for the required answer and transmits it back to Amazon in text form. Alexa then reads the answer
back to you.

You can participate in every sample just once. This is because most samples only allow one
entry per e-mail address for that particular sample. If you enter a sweepsteak more than once
we will automatically remove any duplicate entries. Therefore, entering a samples more than
once will not increase your chances of winning.

There is absolutely no restriction on how many samples you can participate in per day.

Just ask the Alexa Skill Daily Samples Skill for samples by either Brand name or Category. For
instance, you can say, “Alexa, ask Daily Samples for Samples from Pepsi” or “Alexa, which

samples do you have in the Lifestyle Category”? Alternatively, you can just say “Alexa, I want to
win” and Alexa will then navigate you through the process.

No, once you have participated, your willingness to be involved is immediately communicated to the
sponsor/advertiser. If you really want to make sure your participation is revoked, you need to
contact the sponsor/ advertiser directly. You will find the information about sponsor/ advertiser in
the e-mail that you have received from us after your successful participation.

Each state has its own rules governing samples, occasionally making it more difficult for a
sponsor to offer promotions in a particular city/ state.

Absolutely, it may be the case that the sample sponsor will just want to have participants from a particular postal code, city or state to take part in their sample. By default, you will always receive the samples valid for your postal code.
