Everyone knows that Prime Day and Black friday The two best times of the year to buy Amazon devices are – Echo speakers, Kindle readers, Fire tablets, ring protection products and Fire TV streamers – at a deep discount, and this year is no exception. As of Sunday, November 22, the online retailer has abandoned the switch for most of the season at a large discount, and we’ve put the best deals below. Ground rules to keep in mind:

  • These are the first significant discounts we have seen on the new 2020 Echo and Echo Dot speakers.
  • Amazon already has top-notch deals on the site.
  • Almost all of these deals are also available at Best Buy, Target and other retailers.
  • Note that many of these are the return of the price drop from the October Prime Day event.
  • It is not impossible to have additional bundle and add-on deals there, but we do not expect these prices to go any lower between now and the end of the year.
  • Note that many of these have already been backordered for weeks, and those ship times will likely be longer. However, Amazon devices are rarely “out of stock” – shipping dates are lagging back and forth in most cases.

You don’t want to see anything here? Don’t worry – more Black friday and cyber monday The sale is coming.
