Last day to buy Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Fire Tablets on sale — Update: Sale extended another week

Amazon has had several of their Alexa devices and Fire Tablets on sale this week. That sale is expected to end tonight at midnight. If you still haven’t placed your orders, this is probably your last chance to get these products at a discount before Christmas. The Amazon Echo is $139.99, the Echo Dot is $39.99, and the Amazon Tap is $89.99. Those prices match Amazon’s Black Friday sale prices and are pretty good overall. Be sure to check Prime Now if you need something that is backordered to arrive by Christmas.

The 7″ Fire Tablet is $39.99, the Fire Kids Edition Tablet is $89.99, and the Fire HD 10 Tablet is $199.99. Those deals are not as good as the Echo deals, but they’re still pretty decent, especially considering the Fire HD 10 never went on sale during Black Friday. Check my Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide to get a better feel of how these prices compare to past sales.

Update

12/18/16 Amazon has extended the sale another week and has also added the Fire HD 8 for $69.99 to the sale.
