Amazon reveals Black Friday deals on Echo devices, Fire tablets, and more
Black Friday used to be the busiest shopping day of the year in the US, but recently, it’s become the busiest couple of weeks of the year, with retailers like Best Buy offering hefty discounts on some of the world’s most popular high-end smartphones well in advance of Thanksgiving.

Amazon has also (unofficially) kicked off the festivities a while ago with early Black Friday deals on the Moto Z3 Play, Moto G6, LG V30+, LG G6+ Prime Exclusive, and the refurbished iPhone X, some of which are already long gone.

But the real fun is set to begin tomorrow, November 16, lasting a full seven days, as confirmed in a fresh company press release, which mostly details substantial markdowns to come for in-house Amazon devices.

We’re talking pretty much the full range of Echo smart speakers, as well as a number of different Fire TV models and quite a few Fire tablets. The “all-new” Echo Dot and Echo Plus, which were barely unveiled a couple of months ago, headline this impressive list of actual Black Friday offers with decent $26 and $40 discounts respectively.

Meanwhile, the second-generation “regular” Echo, which is a little over a year old now, will go $30.99 off list to a more than reasonable $69, with the Echo Spot looking at a $40 price cut, and the Echo Dot Kids Edition getting a $20 discount. Those not yet swayed by the Google Home Hub’s superior affordability can look forward to a $50 markdown on the latest Echo Show variant to wrap up the deals on Amazon’s extensive Echo family.

As far as tablets go, bargain hunters will not have an easy mission choosing from a $30 Fire 7 (down from $50), $50 Fire HD 8 (with $30 savings), and $100 Fire HD 10 ($50 off), all of which come integrated with the Alexa voice assistant.

If there’s anything left in the old bank account, it’s probably not a bad idea to spend a measly $35 on a Fire TV Stick 4K with an “all-new” Alexa voice remote, especially with free shipping provided sans requiring a minimum purchase account. Just keep in mind these promotions will be live on "various dates and times between November 16 and November 23."

Obviously, this is merely a small taste of what Amazon is planning for the official start of the holiday shopping season, with more than 50 special (and secret) Deals of the Day coming over the next week. “Thousands” of other bargains are in the pipeline too, and we’ll obviously be sure to keep you posted as soon as something interesting surfaces in the mobile phones, smart home, and mobile accessories categories.
