- While Amazon has Prime Day to offer great deals in the summer, it’s certainly not going to hold back during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
- Amazon’s early Black Friday deals are now live and will run through Friday, November 29.
- Of course, all of Amazon’s popular devices and services (Echo, Fire TV, Ring, Kindle Unlimited, Audible, etc.) are prominently on sale.
- Right now, the best deals on Amazon devices are $45 off the Kindle Paperwhite, $30 off the Fire HD 8 Tablet, and $28 off the newest Echo Dot.
- Another Amazon deal we’re excited about is $300 off a 13″ MacBook Air — its lowest price ever on Amazon. At the time of our last update, the Gold color is still available, but Space Gray and Silver are temporarily out of stock.
- We’re also keeping tabs on the best Black Friday deals available online at Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Nordstrom, and The Home Depot. Check out even more Black Friday store sales.
Black Friday is a big time of year to shop kitchen appliances, TVs, smart home devices, and other tech. You can shop Black Friday sales at a large variety of retailers, but more likely than not, you’ll find yourself lingering on one specific online shop: Amazon.
The live deals below are the same ones that will be available on Black Friday — that means if you’re interested now, you can take advantage of them before they sell out on the big day.

What makes these deals great:
- Echo Dot, $22 (originally $50) [You save $28] The most affordable Echo smart speaker gets even cheaper. At this price, you can stock up on a couple or more and spread them throughout the house. The Echo Dot is our pick for the best affordable smart speaker.
- Apple 13-inch MacBook Air, $899 (originally $1,099) [You save $199] This is the best price ever on the new MacBook Air. At first glance, the discount is $199 off, which Best Buy is also offering, but choose free no-rush shipping at checkout and you’ll get another $100 off. While the Space Gray and Silver colors are out of stock at the moment, they may be back for Black Friday. In the meantime, the Gold is available at the deal price.
- Kindle Paperwhite, $85 (originally $130) [You save $45] + $5 ebook credit Prices won’t get any better on the most popular model of Amazon’s Kindle ebook reader, which makes reading on the go more convenient and enjoyable. To get your portable library started, you’ll also get $5 in ebook credit, and you can get three free months of Kindle Unlimited (if you’ve never signed up before).
- Fire HD 8 Tablet, $50 (originally $80) [You save $30] This tablet balances affordability, versatility, and practicality. It already created great value at its original price of $80, but now it’s back at its lowest price — last seen during the holiday season in 2018.
- Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa, $25 (originally $50) [You save $25] The streaming stick that instantly turns your TV into a viewing platform for hundreds of thousands of shows and movies has never been more affordable. Both versions of the Fire TV Stick are 50% off during Black Friday, but for an extra $5, you might as well get a more vivid and crisp viewing experience with the 4K model.
- Amazon Music Unlimited: New members get four months for $1 (originally $32) [You save $31] Amazon’s music streaming service normally costs $8 per month for Prime members, making this $1 deal (just $0.25 per month) a can’t-miss opportunity for anyone who loves listening to music.
- Ecobee Smart Thermostat, $199 (originally $249) [You save $50] This is the lowest price available for a thermostat that has Alexa built in, an innovative sensor that adjusts settings based on the current room occupancy and temperature, and a sleek touch display. There’s also the option to bundle it with a smart light switch.
- 23andMe DNA Test – Health + Ancestry, $99 (originally $199) [You save $100] 23andMe reliably offers this 50% off deal every year, but that doesn’t make it any less valuable. You can learn about your unique genes and ancestry from the comfort of your own home.
- Sony WH1000XM3 Noise Cancelling Headphones, $278 (originally $350) [You save $72] One of our favorite pairs of noise-cancelling headphones is at its best price ever. For under $300, you’ll get a powerful set of headphones that won’t only cancel out surrounding noise — they also feature “smart listening” that actively adjusts ambient sound based on where you wear them.
- Jabra Elite 65T Earbuds, $100 (originally $170) [You save $70] These truly wireless earbuds have experienced many price fluctuations over the year, and now the price is at an all-time low. If you’re not into the look or expensive cost of AirPods, get these light yet powerful Jabra earbuds instead.
- Fitbit Versa 2, $149 (originally $200) [You save $51] Don’t miss out on the best price for the 24/7 heart-rate monitoring fitness tracker. You can choose from a few different colors — just make sure it’s not one of the special edition versions, which cost $30 more.
- Philips Wake-Up Light Alarm Clock, $51.99 (originally $115) [You save $38, plus an additional $25 with coupon] This deal on this useful wake-up light is already a good value at $77, but clipping the $25 on-page coupon results in a never-before-seen low. You’ll wake up refreshed, knowing you got a great deal on a great sleep aid.
- Tile Mate and Tile Slim 4-Pack (2 x Mate, 2 x Slim), $29.99 (originally $49.99) [You save $20] Down nearly $15 below previous lows, this is useful for both home and travel and makes for an affordable gift. Since this is a lightning deal, this will expire at the end of the day.
How we selected the best deals at Amazon:
- We only chose products that meet our high standard of coverage, and that we’ve either used ourselves or researched carefully.
- We compared the prices against other retailers like Target and Best Buy and only included the deals that are the same or better (not including promotional discounts that come from using certain credit cards).
- All deals are at least 20% off, with the occasional exception for products that are rarely discounted or provide an outsized value.
