Amazon Tap is on sale for $99.99

The Amazon Tap is on sale for $99.99 on Amazon. That’s $30 less than its regular price of $129.99. This is an “Okay” price on my Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide scale because it usually drops to $89.99 when Amazon puts all their Alexa devices on sale, which they are doing now. It has also been available for $79.99 through Alexa-exclusive deals twice in the past.

Refurbished Fire TV 1 and Amazon Tap on sale on Woot

Woot currently has the refurbished 1st-gen Fire TV and the refurbished Amazon Tap on sale. The refurbished Fire TV 1 is $52.99, which is $3 more than the lowest price I’ve ever seen for it. If you’re looking for something a bit more powerful than the Fire TV Stick but don’t want to spend the money for the Fire TV 2, the Fire TV 1 is still a very capable device. Plus, it’s the only model that has an optical audio port, which many can’t live without. The refurbished Amazon Tap is $79.99, which is not that enticing of a price, considering the brand new Tap was on sale for just $10 more just a few days ago.

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.


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

Amazon is offering a bundle which includes the Amazon Tap and Fire Tablet for $119.98. This is the first time a bundle like this has ever been available.

Amazon Tap is as low as $74.99 when purchased using Alexa


The Amazon Tap, the portable battery powered Alexa-enabled speaker, is currently $79.99 for Prime members. That matches the price from Prime Day and is the lowest price the Tap has ever been. If you haven’t made an Alexa purchase during the Black Friday Countdown, then you will also get a bonus $5 Amazon Credit after your order ships, which brings the price of the Amazon Tap down to $74.99. Amazon is also selling the black Amazon Tap Sling Cover for $14.99 if purchased through Alexa. That’s $5 off the retail price and is also equal to the lowest price I’ve seen for the protective cover.

Amazon Tap for as little as $69.00 when ordering through Alexa — Today Only


Today only, if you use Alexa to order an Amazon Tap, you’ll receive a $50.99 discount, bringing the price down to just $79. That’s the lowest price the Tap has ever been by a longshot. The cheapest the Tap has ever been before today was $109.99 a month ago. Additionally, if ordering the Amazon Tap is your first Alexa order, you’ll receive an additional $10 off, bringing the price down to $69. Simply say “Alexa, order an Amazon Tap” to an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Amazon Tap and Alexa will verify the discounted price before asking you to confirm the order. This promotion is technically not meant to work through Alexa on the Fire TV, but it does seem to be possible, although, it’s very hit or miss. Sometimes when I ask Alexa on the Fire TV to order the Tap, I see the discounted price, then a few seconds later when I ask again, I see the regular price. There seems to be a separate listing, with a different Amazon product ID, for the discounted Amazon Tap, so it appears to be a matter of getting the Fire TV to select the discounted special listing. Be sure to keep an eye on the Alexa Prime Day Deals page for additional Alexa-only deals.
