Cyber Monday is December 2, but many of the deals have already arrived. Indeed, many of these are Black Friday deals that are still in effect. And that’s nowhere more true than at Amazon. As with all recent Thanksgiving sales, the online retailer has discounted the vast bulk of its homegrown devices — Echo speakers, Echo Show displays, Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, Fire TV streamers, Ring doorbells and cameras and so forth — to some of the lowest prices of the year. Most of the prices meet or exceed what we saw on Prime Day, and some of the them are the lowest prices event on totally new products like the Echo Show 8 smart display, which has been discounted down to $80.
Other notable discounts: The Fire TV Cube for $90, or $30 off, and the Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote and non-4K version of the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote are each 50% off. The Kindle Oasis 2017 is now priced at an all-time low. And we’re seeing great offers on Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers, including the Kindle Kids Edition for $80, a savings of $30.
We’ll keep updating this list frequently — it’s the best of what’s still available.
Live now: Echo speakers and smart displays
Thanksgiving is in the past, but while you’re munching your leftovers you can buy a good chunk of Amazon’s updated Echo line at some discounted prices.
It’s not even released yet, but Amazon just trotted out its first-ever discount on the Echo Show 8. It’s basically a larger version of the super-popular Echo Show 5 (which is currently on sale for $50, FYI), and therefore better suited to places like the kitchen, where the 8-inch screen makes it easier to view cooking videos and the like.
Back to its Prime Day low, the Echo Dot (without the clock) puts all of the smarts of Amazon’s assistant Alexa into a small and affordable package. Even at its normal price of $50, it’s a good deal, so the $22 price is still something to celebrate. With voice commands, you can control your smart home, check the weather, play music, search the internet and more. You lose some sound quality with the smaller size, but you can plug it into your own speakers to make up for the difference.
But c’mon… you want the newer, cooler version with the clock built-in, right? It was just introduced in September at $60, but now it’s at its lowest price yet: just $35.
Kid-friendly, bright colors and parent filters make the Echo Dot Kids Edition a great option for the kiddos in your life. And at $30 off the regular price, this is a good deal. Or, even better, get a set of three for $120. Amazon says its newest Echo Dot Kids Edition is “70% louder” than the first-gen version, and it includes a year of FreeTime Unlimited.
Save $20 now on an Amazon Echo Input, a nifty device that adds Alexa to an external speaker and connects via 3.5mm audio cable or Bluetooth. Basically, it helps you turn any speaker into a smart speaker.

If you want a smart speaker with Alexa that has a little more oomph to its sound quality, the latest version of the original Echo might be the right choice for you. The older version of this puppy was selling for $50 at one point on Prime Day, but with a list price of $100, $60 isn’t half bad.
With a 5.5-inch touchscreen and the ability to wake you up with a nifty sunrise animation, this is our favorite smart display with Alexa. And at this price, it’s a no-brainer.
The second-gen Echo Show refined the design of the first model and offers better sound quality and a 10-inch HD screen. It combines the functionality of a smart speaker like the Echo Dot with a touchscreen you can use for video calls and controlling your smart home with a tap. We like the Echo Show 5 a little better, but at $150 for the full-sized Show — $10 less than Prime Day, which looks to be its lowest ever — is a tempting offer.
Do you need Alexa in your car? Probably not. But who are we to judge? If you always wanted Amazon’s personal assistant on the road, now you can have it for half price. That’s the lowest since it first became available to buy earlier this year.
Fire TV streamers, Blink security cameras, Fire tablets, Kindle Paperwhite and more, on sale now
Here’s everything that is currently on sale as of right now (price drop started Friday, Nov. 22 or earlier).
The Blink XT2 is a weatherproof security camera with a battery that can supposedly last for two years. Getting a two-pack for $100 is a good deal. (There was a two-pack offered during Prime Day at a lower price.)
This 32-inch HD Smart LED TV from Insignia (model NS-32DF310NA19) comes with the Amazon Fire TV smart system, which will let you access Disney Plus, Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO and more. You can also add the code FTVE19 for a free Echo Dot to be included with the TV.
Want to save $5? Get the non-4K version of the Fire TV Stick. (This was actually $15 during Prime Day 2019.)
Save $50 on the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. This is the same hardware as above, but with 32GB of storage built-in, a rubberized case, a year of FreeTime Unlimited (kid-friendly content) and a two-year no-questions-asked replacement warranty for any damage.
The Fire 7 Tablet, updated for 2019, usually costs $50. During this Cyber Monday sale, it will be just $30. That said, we highly recommend you upgrade to the 8-inch model below for just $20 more.
The biggest tablet in Amazon’s lineup is the Fire HD 10. This 10-inch model was just updated for 2019 with a faster processor and USB-C charging, too. Normally $150, it’ll be 33% off during this sale period.
Normally $130, the Paperwhite — the best all-around Kindle e-reader — is back down to just $85 during this sale. And Amazon throws in a $5 e-book credit, too.
We’d strongly recommend you spend up for the Paperwhite. But if you’re shopping on a budget, the newest entry-level Kindle finally includes a built-in light, and it’s back down to its Prime Day price — with a $5 e-book credit thrown in, too.
Yes, Amazon just introduced a new Kindle Oasis this year that adds a color-adjustable integrated light that’s easier on the eyes. But that model is $250, and otherwise nearly identical to the 2017 model that Amazon is discounting now to $150, the lowest price we’ve seen. If you’re gifting something to a serious e-book fan, this is a pretty great choice.
If you’re a newcomer to Amazon’s music-streaming service, it’s hard to beat a buck for four full months of service. After that, you’ll pay the regular rate of $9.99 a month, though you can cancel if you like, without penalty.
Also available now:
- Ring Video Doorbell Pro: $179 (save $70)
- Eero mesh Wi-Fi system: $160 (save $89)
- Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote and Echo Dot: $47 (save $53)
- Amazon Kindle Kids Edition: $80 (save $30)
- Get a free an Echo Dot with the purchase of select Fire TV Edition smart TVs
