The 43 Best Black Friday Deals at Amazon This Year
Amazon’s Black Friday deals cup overflows, which can create a bit of a mess. There are so many products advertised on the retail giant’s site that it can be tough to track down the worthwhile discounts. So we’ve been scouring the site and comparing prices all week. These are the best actual deals on TVs, smart home gear, phones, robot vacuums, and much more.

Amazon Device Deals
We’ve gathered a ton of Amazon Device Deals for Black Friday, but here’s a small sampling of the best.
The Fire HD 10 is our favorite (7/10, WIRED Recommends) of the many Fire tablets available. It’s the biggest and fastest, and it’s pretty inexpensive. Right now the 32GB model is half off, but if you’d like a bit more storage, you can get the 64 GB model for $115, which is still cheaper than the base model is normally. You can also grab the Fire HD 10 Plus, with extra RAM and support for wireless charging, for $30 more.
The fabric-covered spherical fourth generation Echo (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite Alexa-powered smart speaker. It has excellent sound quality, some of the most robust voice commands of any platform, and it recognizes spoken words quickly and easily. We like this speaker at its usual $100, but at this price it’s a steal, matching the lowest in its history.
The basic Kindle is a classic for a reason. It’s an inexpensive, handy way to carry your entire book collection around with you, and the 10th generation model is currently on sale for nearly half off if you buy one. To sweeten the deal, if you buy two, you’ll get an extra $20 off, knocking the price for each one down to an effective $40 each.
The second generation of Amazon’s AirPods competitor impressed us well enough. The Echo Buds (8/10, WIRED Recommends) have solid sound, easy pairing, and wireless charging via the included case. We’d like to see a bit better noise cancellation, but at the current deal price, it’s not a major concern. The Echo Buds without the wireless charging case are also on sale for $20 less.
TV and Monitor Deals
This curved gaming monitor supports both Nvidia G-Sync and AMD’s FreeSync, so you’ll get a smooth refresh rate no matter what graphics card you’re using. We’ve already seen this monitor go on sale for the holidays, but now it’s down to the lowest price we’ve tracked. There’s never been a better time to grab it.
Sony’s A90J is one of our favorite TVs, but that gorgeous OLED panel comes at a steep cost. Full array LEDs are much cheaper while still providing the kind of localized backlighting that creates striking contrast. The X90J is a less expensive sibling to the A90J that uses this type of panel to achieve decent picture quality at close to a third of the cost. It’s typically available for a little less than $1,200.
You know a gadget is a big deal when it has “The” in its name. The Frame from Samsung is designed to look like a normal framed piece of artwork when it’s not in use. It transforms into a regular 43-inch 4K TV when you want to watch a show or six. This price is the lowest we’ve tracked.
