Thinking about buying an Amazon Echo, Fire tablet, Fire TV, Kindle or pretty much any other device Amazon makes? You were smart to wait until now, because the company’s Black Friday deals have started early.
See below for the stuff that’s on sale as of today, Tuesday, Nov. 19, followed by the gear that’s coming next week. Some of these prices rival Prime Day, and some are even better.
- Deals and prices have been verified and updated as of Tuesday, 9:03 a.m. ET — new Fire TV sales were added Sunday.
- We’ve put the newest sale items at the top of the list.
These early Amazon deals are still available as of the time of this writing.
Polk Command Bar with Alexa for 99 (00 off)
We liked this sweet-sounding Alexa-enabled sound bar at 99. 00 off, it’s even better, delivering full Alexa functionality in a form that will seriously amp up your music and TV sound (with a wireless subwoofer, too).
Amazon device deals available now
OK, now to the Amazon device deals. Here’s what you can get immediately, including the new Fire TV sales that started Sunday and are still available today.
Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote: 5 (5 off)
When you talk (to your TV), Alexa listens.
Roku Streaming Stick 2018 for 9 (save 0)
If Fire TV isn’t your thing, this Roku is a great substitute. It’s got more channels, a cleaner interface and it includes a remote (shown here) that controls your TV’s power and volume.
Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote: 5 (5 off)
4K HDR stick speaks Alexa, carries big streaming features.
Fire TV Cube: 0 (0 off)
Alexa turns on your TV, and it feels like magic.
Fire TV Recast 500 GB: 80 (0 off)
Fire TV Recast is a just-released piece of hardware that acts as a dedicated DVR hub for your media streaming needs. CNET’s Ty Pendlebury called it ‘one of the best cord-cutting companions yet,’ and starting Nov. 18, you’ll find the 500GB version with two tuners marked down to 80, saving you 0.
Need more storage space for Recasted reruns? The 1TB version with four tuners will be marked down to 20, saving you about 0.
Echo Sub and two Echos (second-gen): 50 (save 0)
The Amazon Echo Sub adds an instant bass upgrade to the Echo line of smart speakers — and you get two of the latter as well, making for a better overall music experience.
Echo Sub and two Echo Plus (second-gen): 30 (save 00)
One Echo Sub and two Echo smart speakers make for a great combination. If you want to raise the ante, opt for a pair of Echo Plus instead. They add a temperature sensor and smart-home hub to the mix.
Fire TV Stick and Echo Dot (second-gen): 0 (save 0)
For less than the regular price of an Echo Dot alone, you nab both the smart speaker and Amazon’s Alexa-imbued streaming stick.
Blink Indoor Cam Systems for up to 16 off
Amazon bought smart home camera startup Blink late last year — this year, it’s offering big discounts on Blink Indoor starter kits. Here are your options:

- Blink Indoor 3-Cam System: 54 (6 off)

Don’t ask me why a single add-on cam costs more than the one-cam starter kit, which also includes the system’s hub.

To get this price you’ll need to add both devices to your cart.
Echo Spot two-pack: 60 (save 00)
Want a pair of Echo Spots? Amazon will tell you two of them for 60, which is 00 less than you’d normally pay. Single Spots get discounted to 0 starting on Thanksgiving Day, so this deal saves you an extra 0 if you’re planning to buy two, anyway.
