As Amazon always does after a big sale event, they’ve released some figures for their Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend. The Amazon Echo Dot, at $29.99, was the best-selling product on Amazon globally. Interestingly, it’s the only Amazon device that is still available at its sale price. The Amazon Fire TV Stick, at $24.99, was the second best-selling product. Amazon says that 2.7 times as many Fire TV Sticks were sold during this year’s sale than last year, when it was $29.99. Amazon continues to claim that the Fire TV is “the #1 streaming media player family in the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Japan, across all retailers.” Oddly, since it wasn’t even on sale, the Amazon Echo Spot sold well and has sold out until next year. What did you guys think of this year’s sales? Let’s hear what you picked up in the comments.
Amazon just now put the Fire 7 Tablet 3 Pack on sale for $79.97. These are the same tablets that are currently on sale for $29.99 each, but by purchasing this 3 Pack, you’ll save an extra $10. This matches the lowest price these tablets have ever been. Similarly, Amazon has the Fire HD 8 Tablet 3 pack on sale for $129.97, which is $20 less than buying them individualy for their sale price of $49.99.
The Sideclick Universal Remote is back on sale for $14.99. It was this price on Black Friday but sold out and then returned at a higher price. This price is the lowest it has ever been. The Sideclick attaches to the side of any Fire TV or Fire TV Stick remote to provide a column of 8 programmable IR buttons. I’m a big fan of this product and highly recommend it to anyone looking to reduce the number of remotes they use. Everything you need to use the Sideclick with any Fire TV or Fire TV Stick remote is included in the box, so you don’t need to worry about buying the correct remote. It’s also available from Best Buy for the same $14.99 price.

Target currently has the Amazon Fire TV Stick on sale for $21.24, which is the new lowest price that it has ever been. This is because Target is matching Amazon’s Cyber Monday prices and is taking an additional 15% off site-wide. If you have a Target REDcard, you’ll also receive an additional 5% off. The Amazon Fire TV 3 is also on sale for $59.50, which is the first time it has ever been available at a discount.
Target is offering a 15% discount site-wide for Cyber Monday. That means the Amazon Fire TV 3 is on sale for $59.50. This is the first time the all-new Fire TV has been available anywhere for less than its regular price of $69.99. If you have a Target REDcard, you’ll also receive an additional 5% off. Also on sale is the Fire TV Stick for $21.25. All discounts will appear in your cart once the item has been added to your cart.
The Nest Smart Thermostat is on sale for $169.15 as part of Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals. This is the new lowest price that this thermostat has ever been. I own this thermostat and have been very happy with it. You can control it with Alexa or through the mobile app. I’d probably buy the ecobee4 Smart Thermostat, which is still on sale for $199.00, if I were in the market for a new thermostat, but you can’t beat this price for the Nest.
For those of you who haven’t pulled the trigger on Amazon’s Black Friday deals, the sale prices on all of Amazon’s devices will be continuing through Cyber Monday and ending tonight at midnight. Here is everything that is on sale. Read more ›
For Cyber Monday, the Fire TV Edition televisions are back in stock and are reduced to the lowest price they’ve ever been. Most notably, the 55-inch size is $339.99. That’s 46% off the regular price. It was this price once before in the early hours of Thanksgiving morning and it sold out in a few hours, so act fast if you’re interested because it will surely sell out at this price. The 43-inch TV is $382.49 and the 65-inch is $764.99. Those prices are 15% off and are also the lowest prices they have ever been.
The Amazon Fire TV Stick sale for $24.99 is one of the highlights of this year’s Black Friday sale, but if you’re one of the many who are disappointed that the all-new Fire TV 3 did not go on sale this year, there’s still hope. There is a small but not entirely unlikely chance that Amazon will briefly discount the Fire TV 3 tomorrow for Cyber Monday. Read more ›
