Best Black Friday Amazon Echo Deals

There’s no better time than Black Friday to get some Alexa action in your life. And, with Amazon’s recently expanded smart home lineup, you’ve got more choice over your Alexa flavor than ever.

These are our top choices from the Echo range, but remember the deals aren’t available until November 22.

Echo (2nd Gen)

  • $69 — $30.99 off
  • The original, updated. The second generation Echo will control all your smart home devices, act as your personal assistant for shopping lists, reminders and schedules and it’ll play and control your multi-room music.

Echo Dot (third gen)

  • $24 — $25.99 off
  • The smallest version of the Echo. It does everything the bigger Echos do, but struggles playing music.
  • You can connect the Echo Dot to a better speaker with its line-out connection

Buy from Amazon

Echo Show (second gen)

  • $179.99 — $50 off
  • Like the other Echos, but with a handy screen attached. If that sounds like a gimmick, it isn’t. The Show’s screen can help display information like the weather forecast, calendars, to-do lists, recipes, and even video feeds from smart door bells and security cameras.
  • You can also use it to watch live TV, which might make it a good alternative to a traditional TV in a kitchen or bedroom.

Best Black Friday Amazon Fire Tablet Deals

Again, these deals don’t become active until 22 November.

Fire 7 with Alexa

  • $29.99 — $20 off
  • At this price, the Fire 7 with Alexa is the ultimate bargain tablet — it won’t beat an iPad, but you cannot get better for less.
  • It has a 1024×600 7″ LCD display and uses Amazon’s FireOS version of Android, so it should feel familiar to most people
  • It also features Alexa, and has up to 256GB expandable storage

Amazon Fire HD8 with Alexa

  • $49.99 — $30 off
  • Arguably Amazon’s best tablet, the HD8 gets improved specs all-round with only a modest price increase

Best Black Friday Amazon Kindle Deals

Amazon hasn’t announced whether you’ll be able to get your hands on any cut-price Kindles this year, but we’d be expecting to see the cheapest Kindle reduced to about $50, while the Paperwhite, launched just this year might see a small discount. The near-$250 Kindle Oasis, though, probably won’t see any savings.

Kindle 6″

  • $50 last year — down from $80

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 

  • Wasn’t on sale last year

Amazon Kindle Oasis

  • No deal last year

Best Black Friday Amazon Ring Doorbell Deals

Amazon’s Ring range is a video doorbell that is Alexa enabled, meaning that you rig it to sound your Echo devices when someone rings the bell, and even communicate with them through the device. The security conscious will like the motion activated alerts, and the 1080HD camera means that you can keep an eye on your property, even if you’re not at home.

This Black Friday, Amazon are offering the Ring range with some discounts. The best of all is the Ring 2, which Amazon is bundling with a free Amazon Echo dot, making for a $110 saving.
