Everyone knows Black Friday sees retailers slashing prices on everything from smartphones and laptops to slow cookers and lip gloss.
Not one to miss out, Amazon also gets involved in the discounting frenzy. Head over to retail giant on Black Friday and you’ll find deals on almost everything, but often the best deals are reserved for Amazon’s own-brand tech products.
Not all of the deals are live yet, so scroll down to see which ones you should snap up now, and which are worth waiting for.
Starting from Sunday 18 November, you’ll be able to find some great deals on Amazon’s line of Fire TV streaming sticks.
Plug them into an HDMI port on your TV and you’ll get access to a host of great online streaming content, including Amazon Prime Video exclusives such as The Man in the High Castle and The Grand Tour as well as access to other streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu.
Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote
$24.99 — $15 off
Small and easy-to-use plugging straight into a HDMI port
You can access loads of content from Amazon Prime Video and your favorite streaming services
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.
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.
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.
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.
