Don’t worry if you missed out on the steep Amazon device discounts we saw during July’s Amazon’s Prime Day and October’s Prime Early Access Sale: Black Friday is here, and the deals in some cases are even better. With the holiday season just around the corner, the timing’s perfect, too, as even popular presents like the Kindle Paperwhite are on sale at new all-time low prices. Even better, we’re even seeing some of the first significant discounts on Amazon’s recently launched tech, like the fifth-gen Echo Dot, which just came out last month and is already half off.

For your convenience, we’ve curated all the best deals you can currently get on Amazon devices in this post. If you want to save even more, though, be sure to check out our other roundups, including our guides to the best early Black Friday deals and the best deals at Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.

The best Black Friday deals on Amazon smart displays

  • You can buy Amazon’s second-gen Echo Show 8 for $69.99 ($60 off) at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. Our favorite smart display offers similar functionality to other Alexa-enabled smart displays so you can stream shows and play music but with some extra perks, like the ability to video call loved ones via Zoom.

  • Amazon’s large, wall-mounted Echo Show 15 is on sale for $169.99 instead of $249.99 at Amazon as well as at Best Buy.

Read our review.
  • Like the Echo Show 15, the Echo Show 10’s design differs from the other Echo Show smart displays. The rotating smart display mounts on a motorized, swiveling base, which makes it useful for, say, following you around while you move about during video calls. It’s currently on sale for $169.99 at Amazon ($80 off), Best Buy, and Target. Read our review.
  • If you’re looking for a more affordable Alexa-enabled smart display, the tiny second-gen Echo Show 5 is on sale for $34.99 at Amazon ($50 off), Best Buy, and Target. You can also buy it bundled with the Blink Mini from Amazon for $49.99 ($69.99 off). With its 5.5-inch display, the Echo Show 5 makes for the perfect nightstand alarm — you can snooze it with just a tap, and it also delivers weather reports, plays music, and more. Read our review.
