Look, don’t say we didn’t warn you! We told you back in October: there are six types of products that. High on that list? Any Amazon device you can name, including Fire tablets, Kindle Paperwhite and Echo speakers and smart displays. And now we can happily say: We told you so!
We’ve just received an early list of what’s expected to go on sale, and when. It includes some of the best prices this side of Prime Day, back in July.
We’ve listed the full swath of great deals below. It’s a rolling Black Friday sale: Some deals start Nov. 22 (the Friday before Thanksgiving), with more devices being added every few days through Thanksgiving Day.
Note that we’ve included the sales pricing and links, but the sale prices are not available until the dates indicated. Plan your shopping accordingly. Can’t wait? Here are the.
Starting Nov. 22: Fire tablets, Kindle Paperwhite and more
The price drops start Nov. 22 — that’s the Friday before Thanksgiving, one week before Black Friday proper.
This is the Goldilocks tablet in Amazon’s line — you’re much better off getting this model versus the 7-incher below. See our Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet review.
Save $50 on the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. This is the same hardware as above, but with 32GB of storage built-in, a rubberized case, a year of FreeTime Unlimited (kid-friendly content) and a two-year no-questions-asked replacement warranty for any damage. See our Amazon Fire 8 Kids Edition Tablet review.
The Amazon Fire 7 Tablet, updated for 2019, usually costs $50. During this Black Friday sale, it will be just $30. That said, we highly recommend you upgrade to the 8-inch model below for just $20 more. See our Amazon Fire 7 Tablet review.
Save $40 on the Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet, just $60. This has the same features as the 8-incher Kids version, above. See our Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet review.
The biggest tablet in Amazon’s lineup is the Fire HD 10. This 10-inch model was just updated for 2019 with a faster processor and USB-C charging, too. Normally $150, it’ll be 33% off during this sale period. See our hands-on preview of the 2019 Fire HD 10 Tablet review.
Normally $130, the Paperwhite — the best all-around Kindle e-reader — is back down to just $85 during this sale. See our Kindle Paperwhite review.
Starting Nov. 24: Fire TV products
The Sunday before Thanksgiving, Amazon adds more devices to its sale list.
Spend just $10 more for the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K (usually $50). See our Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K review.
Want to save $5? Get the non-4K version of the Fire TV Stick. (This was actually $15 during Prime Day 2019.) See our review of the Fire TV Stick.
Starting Nov. 27: Blink cameras, Ring doorbells and $5 smart plugs
The day before Thanksgiving means even more stuff goes on sale.
No longer confined to your doorbell, the Ring Indoor Cam lets you add surveillance to any room of your home. Just make sure your comfortable with Ring’s relationship with law enforcement first. See our Ring Indoor Cam versus Wyze Cam comparison.
The Blink XT2 is a weatherproof security camera with a battery that can supposedly last for two years. Getting a two-pack for $100 is a good deal. (There was a two-pack offered during Prime Day at a lower price.) See our hands-on preview of the Blink XT2.

It’s not our favorite smart plug, but if you’re getting it for $5, there’s nothing to complain about. And that’s the price when you bundle it in with the Echo Dot, Echo Dot with Clock, Echo, Echo Show 5 or Echo Studio, starting Nov. 27. Read our Amazon Smart Plug review.
Starting Nov. 28: Echo speakers and smart displays
Happy Thanksgiving! While you’re basting the turkey, you can buy a good chunk of Amazon’s updated Echo line at some very discounted prices.
