Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I renamed my Skill after I submitted the promotional form, do I need to submit a new form?

A: No, if you have changed the name of your Skill after submission of the promotion form, there is no need to resubmit a new form. The more important information that you provided in the form was your Skill ID.

Q: My Skill failed certification, do I need to submit a new promotional form when I re-submit my Skill for certification?

A:  No. Because your Skill ID has not changed, your original form submission is still valid.

Q: I believe that I have done everything to qualify for the promotion. When will I receive my promotional items (e.g.: socks, shirt, promo code, etc.)?

A: Please allow 30 days time to pass before contacting our support team for details regarding any items you may have earned through the promotion.

Q: Do I have to submit a new Skill to qualify for the promotion?

A: Yes. To be eligible for the promotion, you must publish a new skill to the catalog during the promotion period. Updates to existing Skills (published to the catalog before the current promotion period) will not qualify for the promotion.

Q: My Skill didn't end up going live last month. Can I submit it for this month's promotion?

A: Yes. Your new Skill is eligible for the promotional period in which it was published, not when you submitted it for certification. Please be sure to submit a promotional form entry during the same month that your Skill has gone live to ensure you are properly entered into the promotion.

Q: Can I submit my Skill for multiple Alexa promotions?

A: No. We do sometimes run multiple promotions during the same period, but we do not allow for eligibility for more than one promotion at a time.

Q: How do I find my skill ID?

A: Your Skill ID will be in one of two formats. It will either start with either amzn1.ask.skill or amzn1.echo-sdk-ams.app

You can find your Skill ID by logging into developer.amazon.com and navigating to Amazon Developer Console > Alexa > Alexa Skills Kit > View Skill ID. The Skill ID is unique and typically starts with "amzn1.ask.skill.

Q: Do I have to wait for my Skill to go live before I can submit a promotional form?

A: No. However, your Skill does need to be published the month of the promotion to be eligible.
