Early Black Friday deals are here, and they’re good. Although Amazon hasn’t yet released an official plan like the likes of Target, Best Buy, and Walmart, they have put out some deals. Recently, they put out a variety of Amazon products for discounts that rival Prime Day, including security cameras, Echo devices, Fire tablets, TVs, and Fire TV Sticks.
Best early Black Friday Amazon TV deal
Table of Contents
There are a couple of deals on TVs available on Amazon right now, but if you‘re not careful, you’ll be tricked by Amazon into thinking you’re getting a better deal than they actually are. Most of the TVs available have hidden price hikes, and unless you’re checking their price history, you’d never know. The best actual deal available is the Amazon Fire TV 55″ 4-Series with a 48% discount, currently sitting at $269.99 (originally $519.99). But even with this TV, it seems like Amazon only uses its $519.99 listing price to make their discounts look better. The average price of this TV is closer to $400, according to Camelcamelcamel’s price history. This is still a great deal for a 4K 4-Series 55-inch Fire TV, but not as good as they might want you to think.
Best early Black Friday Amazon security camera deals
Amazon is selling Blink outdoor and indoor security cameras, refurbished Ring doorbell cameras, and Ring floodlights with doorbell camera bundles. Most of these cameras are well-priced, and the deals really are as good as they seem. What is “best” will depend on whether you want an indoor or outdoor camera, wired or with battery, a single camera or multiple, or are interested in a bundle or not. However, these are some particularly well-priced deals:
- The Blink Outdoor 4 is 40% off (for a single camera), matching its lowest price ever from October Prime Day, according to Camelcamelcamel. It’s $65.99 (originally $109.99). If you get more than one (you can get up to an eight-pack), the discount becomes 50% off. This is the latest Blink Outdoor camera, which is wire-free, so you can place it anywhere you’d like. Its battery life lasts two years, has two-way audio, 1080p HD live view, night vision, and person detection, so you don’t get notified about cars passing by.
- If you’re looking to get started with Blink and want a bundle to cover all bases, I recommend the Blink Whole Home Bundle, which is 52% off. It’s currently $101.98 (originally $214.97). It brings everything you’d need, including a Blink video doorbell, a Blink Mini indoor camera, a Blink Outdoor 4, and a Sync Module 2 to control your security camera hub with your phone.
- Consider this Blink Video Doorbell with an Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max bundle if you’re in the market for a Fire TV Stick as well. It’s 46% off, sitting at $64.99 (originally $119.98).
Best early Black Friday Amazon Echo device deals
Amazon is selling Echo devices for kids, Echo Shows 5 and 8, and Echo device bundles with a Sengled smartlight. The Echo Shows 5 and 8 cost the same as the bundle with the Sengled smart light, so there is no reason not to get the bundle option. The third-generation Echo Show 5 is currently matching its lowest price at $39.99 (originally $89.99), according to Camelcamelcamel’s price history. The same can be said about the second-generation Echo Show 8, currently $59.99 (originally $129.99) according to Camelcamelcamel’s price history. If you want small and compact, go with the Echo Show 5. If you want a bigger screen with better speakers, go with the Echo Show 8.
The Echo and Echo Dot smart speakers are not hitting their best discounts at the moment, so if you’re interested in those, I suggest waiting until they get better deals.
Best early Black Friday Fire TV Stick deals
If you’re considering a Fire TV Stick to make your TV “smart” or are looking for a Fire Tablet, these are the best options:
- The Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite is $3 off its lowest price, currently sitting at $17.99 (originally $29.99). If you don’t have a 4K TV, this is all you need to stream all your favorite apps on your TV and get some free live channels.
- If you have a 4K TV, then the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is your best option at $29.99 (originally $49.99). This is the cheapest price it has been, according to Camelcamelcamel’s price history.
Best early Black Friday Fire tablet deals
Amazon has Fire tablets up to 50% off right now for both kids and adults. Here are your best options:
- If you’re looking to gift a young one a Fire tablet, the Amazon Fire 7 Kids tablet is $54.99 (was $109.99), matching its lowest price according to Camelcamelcamel. The Amazon Fire 7 Kids tablet was released in 2022 and is aimed at kids ages 3 to 7 with a sturdy case.
- If your child is between the ages of six to 12, then consider the Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro tablet for $119.99 (originally $199.99). This one is also matching its lowest price according to Camelcamelcamel. While it has a slimmer case, it has better overall specs than the Fire 7 Kids tablet.
- The Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus tablet is $94.99 (originally $179.99), and it matches its lowest price from October Prime Day, according to Camelcamelcamel. It is $25 more than the Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet for an extra GB of RAM that will make your tablet run much smoother. Depending on your budget and how many tabs you want to keep open, the $25 difference makes the jump to the Plus model worth it.
