Amazon has a couple of Alexa-exclusive deals for Black Friday this year with prices that you can only get if you order through Alexa. The first is the Kasa Color Smart Bulb for $4.99, which you can order by saying “Alexa, order a Kasa Smart Bulb.” This 1,000-lumen WiFi smart bulb is normally priced at $22.99 and has been as low as $13.99 in the past. The second Alexa-exclusive deal is the Blink Mini Security Camera for $19.99, which you can get by saying “Alexa, order a Blink Mini White” or “Alexa, order a Blink Mini Black.”. The camera has a list price of $34.99 and is currently on sale for Black Friday for $29.99, but it has been as low as $24.99 in the past. UPDATE: The smart bulb is no longer available at a discount through Alexa but you can still get the Blink Mini camera for $19.99 when ordering through Alexa.
It wouldn’t be an Amazon Black Friday Sale without record-low prices on Echo Show devices and this year is no exception. In a new first for this year, Amazon is bundling the Echo Show 5 with a Free Echo Show Auto for just $34.99. Amazon has dropped the Echo Show 5 to $34.99 in the past and even included a free smart bulb or smart plug, but this is the first time the Echo Auto is thrown in. Also available is the Echo Show 5 Kids for $39.99. Moving up in size is the Echo Show 8 on sale for $69.99, which, at 46% off, matches the lowest price it has ever been in the past, but past deals at this price have included free smart bulbs. Also matching their lowest prices ever are the Echo Show 10 and the Echo Show 15 which are both on sale for $169.99, which is 32% off their list prices of $249.99. The Echo Show 15 will be receiving a software update soon that turns it into a full-fledged Fire TV that can be controlled by touch or by a Fire TV remote.
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 has put multiple streaming services on sale for $1.99 per month for two months for its Early Black Friday Sale. These services are through Prime Video Channels, so you have to be a Prime member to subscribe. The services available include Paramount+, AMC+, Showtime, Starz, Epix, Vix+, Hallmark Movies Now, Britbox, Noggin, PBS Masterpiece, PBS Kids, A&E Crime Central, Motortrend, BBC Select, Lifetime Movie Club, ScreenPix, and Up Faiths & Family. As with all Prime Video Channel subscriptions, you can cancel right away and continue watching for the remainder of the month without fear of auto-renewing. So, set a reminder to cancel in 5 weeks if you just want to pay $3.98 for two months.

Amazon has put the brand-new 3rd-gen Fire TV Cube on sale for the first time for its early Black Friday sale. It’s not on sale in the US yet, but you can get it at a discount in several European countries. It’s on sale for £119.99 in the UK, which is 14% off. Those of you in German, Austria, France, Italy, or Spain can get the Fire TV Cube 3 on sale for €139.99, which is 13% off its regular price in those countries. Even though it’s not on sale yet in the US, the European sale prices tell us that, if it does go on sale in the US for Black Friday, it’ll probably be priced at $119.99. As a reminder, select lucky customers can get $40 off the Fire TV Cube 3 using promo code 4KCUBE at checkout, which is a better deal than any of these sale prices.
