FIRE TABLETS AND Echo speakers are rarely expensive. They’re built to be affordable, and some of them are especially cheap for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We’ve compiled every decent deal on Amazon-branded devices going on right now. Amazon has a Device Deals page with many of its best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, but we have them all organized below.
Note: Deals tend to flow and out of availability at a rapid rate during Black Friday. Please bear with us. We will continue to update this list as we learn about new deals, and items sell out. You can read more WIRED Black Friday deals guides here.
This isn’t the new waterproof Kindle Paperwhite (9/10, WIRED Recommends), but it’s still an awesome ebook reader. If you’re an avid reader, check out Kindle Unlimited. It lets you read unlimited books (and listen to Audible books) for a monthly fee.
- Kindle Paperwhite for $80 ($40 off) A Fantastic Kindle

- 2 Echo 2 Speakers + Bass-Boosting Echo Sub for $250 ($80 off). Same deal as above, though the Echo 2 cannot match the Plus in music quality.

FIRE TV DEALS
Amazon’s Fire TV platform is great if you subscribe to Amazon Prime or buy Amazon Instant Videos. It emphasizes Amazon content above Netflix and other providers, but it does have most of the major streaming apps. At these Black Friday deal prices, even the Fire TV Cube is mighty appealing.
- New Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa for $35 ($15 off) – WIRED Best Streaming Device Pick. Choose this version if you own a 4K TV, or if you want Alexa voice control via remote.
- Fire TV Cube for $60 ($60 off). *At $60, this is a great deal. It’s not much more useful than a Fire TV Stick, but it does have hands-free Alexa and voice menus. Read our full review, written when it was $120.
