Black Friday Amazon Device Deals: Fire TV Stick, Kindle Paperwhite, Echo Show, And More

Why wait until Thanksgiving to start thinking about Black Friday?

1 Comments

Black Friday is fast approaching, and for those looking to score some sweet deals, it's time to scour ads, retailer websites, and more for the best deals. A few stores have already announced their Black Friday deals, and Amazon has gotten a bit ahead of the competition with its Happy HoliDeals sale.

As with Prime Day, Amazon's holiday deals page includes a mix of Lightning Deals--which are only available for a limited time--and longer-term deals that should be available throughout the duration of this first round of deals (or while supplies last).

While the pre-Black Friday sale is currently light on game deals, there's a wide range of accessories for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC available along with tech and entertainment deals. Some of the most notable deals include six months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $45 (three-month membership plus three months free), a Nubwo gaming headset for $25 (down from $60), and a Motospeed mechanical gaming keyboard for $38.08 (down from $57). If you like owning your favorite movies in 4K UHD, there's a great bundle deal that lets you choose three 4K UHD films for $50 or less--and over 200 options are available. On that note, if you're on the hunt for a 4K TV this holiday season, some great options are already on sale, including this Samsung 55-inch 4K UHD TV for $698 (down from $1,198).

After this first round of deals has ended on November 22 (or while supplies last), another batch of deals will be posted in the week leading up to Black Friday itself on November 29. The store has confirmed a wide range of Amazon devices will be on sale starting with several tablets on November 22, including the Fire HD 10 Tablet for $100 ($50 off) and the Kindle Paperwhite for $85 ($45 off). We've included the full list of device deals and pricing below, but please note these prices will not be live until their respective sale date.

Plus, check out some of the best gaming, tech, and entertainment deals from Amazon's HoliDeals sale below--these early deals are live now until November 22 or until they sell out.
