Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide

Listed below are discounted prices you can expect for electronics made by Amazon. All prices are based on historical sales, such as Prime Day and Black Friday sales, with the "Great" price usually being the lowest price the device has ever been in the past. The Price Reasoning section of each device explains in more detail how the deal prices were determined. Keep in mind that most of the devices listed on this page have actually been available for lower than the lowest ever price listed through additional incentives, such as when multiple discounts stack together, like credit card cash back promotions or Alexa shopping incentives. The lowest ever prices listed below are usually the lowest these devices have been through a standard Amazon sale.
