Black Friday doesn’t officially start until Nov. 29, but it’s officially arrived early at Amazon. The online retailer has discounted nearly all its Fire tablets, the Kindle Paperwhite e-reader and the Echo Show 8 smart display to their lowest prices since Prime Day — and more discounts are on the way soon. Want to know when the rest of Amazon’s Echo speakers, Echo Show smart displays and Fire TV video streamers get their big holiday price cuts? Read on, because we’ve got the full details here.

Looking for more Amazon discounts? Be sure to check out our ongoing list of the best Amazon early Black Friday deals available right now.

Full details are available below. Just remember that the sale prices are not available until the dates indicated. 

Now on sale: Fire tablets, Kindle Paperwhite and more

Here’s everything that went on sale starting today (Friday, Nov. 22) and earlier. 

Save $50 on the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. This is the same hardware as above, but with 32GB of storage built-in, a rubberized case, a year of FreeTime Unlimited (kid-friendly content) and a two-year no-questions-asked replacement warranty for any damage.

See our Amazon Fire 8 Kids Edition Tablet review.

The Amazon Fire 7 Tablet, updated for 2019, usually costs $50. During this Black Friday sale, it will be just $30. That said, we highly recommend you upgrade to the 8-inch model below for just $20 more.

It’s not even released yet, but Amazon just trotted out its first-ever discount on the Echo Show 8. It’s basically a larger version of the super-popular Echo Show 5 (which is currently on sale for $80, FYI), and therefore better suited to places like the kitchen, where the 8-inch screen makes it easier to view cooking videos and the like.

Amazon

If you’re a newcomer to Amazon’s music-streaming service, it’s hard to beat a buck for four full months of service. After that, you’ll pay the regular rate of $9.99 per month, though you can cancel if you like, without penalty. 

Starting Nov. 24: Fire TV products

The Sunday before Thanksgiving, Amazon adds more devices to its sale list.

Starting Nov. 27: Blink cameras, Ring doorbells and $5 smart plugs

The day before Thanksgiving means even more stuff goes on sale.

Amazon

The Blink XT2 is a weatherproof security camera with a battery that can supposedly last for two years. Getting a two-pack for $100 is a good deal. (There was a two-pack offered during Prime Day at a lower price.)

See our hands-on preview of the Blink XT2.

Starting Nov. 28: Echo speakers and smart displays

Happy Thanksgiving! While you’re basting the turkey, you can buy a good chunk of Amazon’s updated Echo line at some very discounted prices.

Back to its Prime Day low, the Echo Dot (without the clock) puts all of the smarts of Amazon’s assistant Alexa into a small and affordable package. Even at its normal price of $50, it’s a good deal, so the $22 price is still something to celebrate. With voice commands, you can control your smart home, check the weather, play music, search the internet and more. You lose some sound quality with the smaller size, but you can plug it into your own speakers to make up for the difference.

But c’mon… you want the newer, cooler version with the clock built-in, right? It was just introduced in September at $60, but now it’ll be at its lowest price yet: Just $35.

If you want a smart speaker with Alexa that has a little more oomph to its sound quality, the latest version of the original Echo might be the right choice for you. The older version of this puppy was selling for $50 at one point on Prime Day, but with a list price of $100, $60 isn’t half bad.

With a a 5.5-inch touchscreen and the ability to wake you up with a nifty sunrise animation, this is our favorite smart display with Alexa. And at this price, it’s a no-brainer. 

See our Amazon Echo Show 5 review.

Tyler Lizenby/CNET

The second gen Echo Show refined the design of the first model and offers better sound quality and a 10-inch HD screen. It combines the functionality of a smart speaker like the Echo Dot with a touchscreen you can use for video calls and controlling your smart home with a tap. We like the Echo Show 5 a little better, but at $150 for the full-sized Show — $10 less than Prime Day, which looks to be its lowest ever — is a tempting offer. 

See our Amazon Echo Show review.

Tyler Lizenby/CNET

Do you need Alexa in your car? Probably not. But who are we to judge? If you always wanted Amazon’s personal assistant on the road, now you can have it for half price. That’s the lowest since it first became available to buy earlier this year.
