The first batch of Amazon’s expected Black Friday device discounts went live today, so if any of them have been on your wish list, we don’t expect you’ll see a better price this year. Here’s what you can save on so far:
Amazon’s small, ultra-affordable tablets aren’t included in this batch of deals (unless you’re interested in the Kids Editions), but the brand new 10" model is an absolute steal at $100. That gets you a 1080p display, 32GB of storage (with a microSD card slot if you want to expand that), 10 hours of battery life, and of course, Alexa. You could do a whole lot worse for a portable entertainment device.
The two entry level Kindles are both $30 off, with additional savings available on Kids and Essentials bundles. Our advice - get the Paperwhite. The extra $40 is well worth a screen that’s twice as sharp, and includes a backlight. If you don’t mind buying a refurb, you can also get the Kindle Voyage, complete with an ambient light sensor and pressure-sensitive page-turning bezels, for $120.
Amazon’s entire selection of Dash buttons is 50% off, bringing them all down to $2.50. The first time you use them though, you’ll still get a $5 account credit, so you actually stand to (sort of) make money here.
