Black Friday is looming, and that means it’s the perfect time of the year to save a bunch of money on different devices and products that you’ve been holding off on. We’ve seen a few solid deals here and there, but considering that Amazon is going to be the place that many people go, it’s apropos that the company is kicking off November with a few early Black Friday deals.
As expected, the first big series of deals comes to Amazon’s own lineup of devices, with the ability to save almost $50 on some of the most popular Amazon devices. Here’s what we’re seeing in the first wave of Amazon deals:
The Amazon Echo Dot is the best way to get yourself started in the Amazon ecosystem, and the company’s last-generation Dot is on sale for just $25, a savings of $15.
With the Amazon Fire TV Stick, you’ll save 30% and will get access to all of the best streaming services, along with enjoying a remote with Amazon Alexa built right in. You can even save on the two different Star Wars bundles, which gives you a Bounty Blue remote cover, or a Grogu Green one.
Those who want a cheap tablet for themselves or to give to someone else will want to check out the Amazon Fire HD 8. The tablet was finally updated last year, and includes 32GB of expandable storage, up to 12-hours of battery life, and is 50% off for a limited time.
Having an Amazon Echo Dot is a nice way to put Alexa in different rooms of your home, but the best smart speakers are the ones that also include a display. The Amazon Echo Show 5 sports a 5.5-inch display, doubles as a digital picture frame, and can be used to manage your smart home.
With the Echo Show 5 Kids, you get all of the same great benefits as the regular Echo Show 5, plus some fun and different fabric covers. Plus, there are a slew of parental controls available, so your kids don’t end up using the Show 5 to access things they shouldn’t be, while also providing help if they have a question about their homework.
While the 3rd-generation Echo Dot is a great smart speaker, it’s not the latest option to come from Amazon. Luckily, if you prefer the look of the “orb”, the Echo Dot 4th gen is also on sale for 30% off.
