If you’re in the market for a Fire tablet, today’s Black Friday Sale is the best time to buy one. The newly released Fire 7 Tablet is on sale for $39.99, which is 33% off its regular price of $59.99. This is the new lowest price that this 2022 tablet has ever been. For very little more you can get the Fire HD 8 on sale for $44.99, which is half off the list price of $89.99 and matches the lowest price it has ever been. Both tablets perform about the same, but the Fire HD 8 comes with twice the storage and a better display. For slightly better performance, thanks to more RAM, and the addition of wireless charging, you can get the Fire HD 8 Plus on sale for $54.99, which is also half off and the lowest it has been. For a more considerable jump in performance and screen quality, there’s the Fire HD 10 on sale for $74.99, which matches its lowest past price of 50% off. For the best of the best, you can get the Fire HD 10 Plus on sale for $104.99, which increases the RAM and adds wireless charging to the regular Fire HD 10. Lastly, the Kid versions of all three tablet sizes are also on sale for $54.99, $79.99, and $119.99 for the 7, 8, and 10 inch sizes, respectively.

The flagship smart speaker from Amazon is on sale for Black Friday. You can get the Echo Studio for $154.99 and it includes a free Color Philips Hue smart bulb. Amazon rarely puts the Echo Studio on sale. There was a very short-lived price mistake last year that dropped it down to $115 and it was $149.99 with two free bulbs for Prime Day 2020, which was the lowest normal price it has ever reached. At just $5 above that all-time low regular price, if you want the best-sounding Echo speaker at a discount, don’t hesitate to pick this deal up. As a reminder, a pair of Echo Studio speakers can be linked to a Fire TV and used for Dolby Atmos playback, thanks to the upward-firing speaker on top of the Echo Studio.
As you’d expect, Amazon has put all of its Echo Dots on sale for Black Friday, including the new 5th-gen models released last month. On the least expensive end is the 3rd-gen Echo Dot for $14.99, which is the new lowest price that it has ever been. However, if you qualify, you can get it for $9.98 with a free month of Amazon Music Unlimited. Just be sure to cancel the subscription before it auto-renews. Alternatively, you can get the 3rd-gen Echo Dot w/ a White Hue Smart Bulb for $17.98. Next is the new 5th-gen Echo Dot w/ a White Hue Smart Bulb for $24.99. This is the first time the new Dot has ever been on sale. Compared to the old model, the new Dot now includes a Zigbee hub so you don’t need the Hue Hub to control Hue lights anymore. What I consider to be the best deal is the 5th-gen Echo Dot w/ Clock and 2 White Hue Bulbs for $39.99. The addition of a clock on the Dot is very handy and this new version can now display even more things, like the weather, on its pixel display. Lastly are the 5th-gen Echo Dot Kids models on sale for $29.99, which is half off their regular price of $59.99.
Amazon has the full-sized Echo on sale for $49.99 with a Free Hue Color Bulb for Black Friday. This is the new best deal that the Echo has ever had. The $49.99 price is 50% off the regular price of $99.99, which is a deal that first popped up last month, but now it’s a bit better because of the included smart bulb. Amazon normally includes the much cheaper white smart bulbs with Echo bundles, but this one is the full-color bulb from Philips Hue that is currently listed for $55. The full-sized Amazon Echo provides much better audio quality than the smaller Echo Dots, thanks to housing dual 0.8″ tweeters and a 3.0″ woofer, compared to the Echo Dot’s single 1.6″ speaker. It also has a built-in Zigbee smart hub for controlling smart home devices without a hub, like the included Philips Hue bulb, even when the internet goes down. Also on sale for Black Friday are numerous other Echo speakers and Echo Shows.
For its Black Friday Sale, Amazon has the Luna Controller on sale for $39.99, which is 43% off its regular price of $69.99. This matches the lowest price that the Luna controller has ever been and is $10 less than last Black Friday. Even if you have zero interest in ever subscribing to Luna Cloud Gaming, you should seriously consider this deal. For starters, if you like to game and are a Prime member, then picking up this controller gives you the best way to play all the free monthly Luna games that Prime members get access to each month. Apart from Luna, this is just generally a great controller and easily the best one for Fire TV gaming of any kind. While it connects to Luna directly over WiFi for the lowest latency possible, it also connects to Fire TVs, Android phones/tablets, and Windows PCs over Bluetooth for regular non-Luna gaming. It can also connect over its USB-C port if you prefer to go wired, which comes with the advantage of not needing batteries since it can be powered over the USB connection. There’s also a Phone Clip for $14.99, if you’re interested, that can attach a phone to the controller.
Amazon has the 2nd-gen Fire TV Cube on sale for $59.99 for its Black Friday Sale. At 50% off the regular price of $119.99, this deal matches the lowest price the previous generation Cube has ever been. Unfortunately, the new 3rd-gen Fire TV Cube has not gone on sale in the US for Black Friday, so we likely won’t see it on sale until sometime next year. It has only gone on sale in Europe for around 13-14% off. The older Cube is still a killer device and outperforms every other Fire TV model except for the new Cube. If you’ve been holding out for a deal on the 3rd-gen Cube and need a streamer to tide you over, consider the Fire TV Cube 2 or the Fire TV Stick 4K Max on sale for $34.99. Both of those devices are a considerable upgrade from practically every Fire TV model before them.
Amazon was impatient this year and launched Black Friday deals on all Fire TV devices early. I’ve posted individually about all the best deals, like the Fire TV Stick 4K Max on sale for the first time ever at $34.99, but here is a roundup of every Fire TV related deal that is currently live. The huge list includes all Fire TVs, Firesticks, Fire TV Cubes, and a massive number of Fire TV Smart TVs. There are also numerous accessories on sale, like the Fire TV Recast, IR Blaster, remote covers, remote holders, and more. For everything on sale, I’ve indicated whether it’s a new all-time low price, it’s matching the previous all-time low price, or how much more the current price is compared to the lowest it has been in the past.

UPDATE #3: Curiosity Stream and Emby deals added. Read more ›
Most Amazon Black Friday deals have been live for several days but a few new ones are just barely trickling out this morning. Amazon released new Kids Echo bundles this morning and a few new Fire TV Smart TVs also dropped further in pricea few hours ago. Another new deal for today is the Amazon Smart Plug for $14.99, which is 40% off its regular price of $24.99. This sale matches the lowest price Amazon’s own smart plug has ever been. While this isn’t the least expensive smart plug on the market or the one with the most features, what you get by choosing it over others is simplification. That’s because it comes pre-linked to your account and, if you’ve previously saved your Wi-Fi password with Amazon while setting up a new device, Alexa should be able to configure the plug in seconds by powering it on and saying “Alexa, find my device.” There’s also the advantage of needing to only use the Alexa app for everything related to this plug, instead of yet another 3rd-party smart home app.
Amazon just released new Black Friday deals this morning on bundled Echo Dot Kids and Echo Show 5 Kids devices. These bundles have never been available before today and they save a bit more over buying the already discounted devices individually. The first bundle includes the Echo Show 5 (2nd-gen) Kids + Echo Dot (4th-gen) Kids + Color Smart Bulb for $79.98, which is 52% off its regular price of $169.97. This bundle saves you $5 and gets you the free smart bulb compared to buying the Echo Show 5 Kids on sale for $50 and the Echo Dot Kids on sale for $35 separately for $85. It’s available with either the Tiger print or the Panda print Echo Dot Kids. If you’re not interested in the Echo Show, there are now alos bundles that include an Echo Dot (4th-gen) Kids 2-Pack + Color Smart Bulb for $59.99, which is 55% off the regular price of $134.97. This bundle saves you $10 over buying the Echo Dot Kids seperately at their current discounted price of $35, which is already the lowest they have ever been, plus you get the free smart bulb. These 2-Packs are available in either 2 Tiger prints, 2 Panda prints, or 1 Tiger + 1 Panda print.
