SAVE UP TO 62%: Amazon is having a massive sale on all of its devices in honor of its Alexa smart assistant’s birthday on Nov. 6 — here are its best deals as of Oct. 30:
“Scorpio season“? More like Alexa season.
Amazon’s iconic virtual assistant is celebrating its golden birthday on Nov. 6, and the retailer is marking the occasion with a huge sale on almost all of its devices — we’re talking discounts as high as 62% on previous-gen Echo smart speakers, Fire TV streaming sticks and displays, the latest Kindle, and a couple of Ring video doorbells.
Many of these offers match Amazon’s Prime Day pricing, and we’ll probably see some very similar deals when Black Friday rolls around in about a month. Still, we’d recommend buying sooner rather than later: Some devices are *already* backordered through mid-December, with estimated delivery dates as late as Dec. 27 even with Prime shipping. If you want to see your new gadget before 2021, you’d better make it snappy.
If we were you, here’s what we’d buy ASAP:
OUR TOP PICK: Echo Dot (3rd Gen)
1.6-inch all-range driver
Tens of thousands of Alexa skills
Available in four colors (Charcoal, Heather Gray, Plum, and Sandstone)
An excellent entry-level smart speaker, the 2018 Echo Dot is back down to its best-ever pricing on Amazon at just $18.99 (normally $49.99). On top of those $21 savings, you’ll also receive a Sengled smart bulb for free with your order — pair it with the Echo Dot, and you’ll be able to control a lamp or light fixture using just your voice.
(Best Buy ran this exact same deal last week, FYI, and while it still has the Echo Dot on sale for $19, it’s no longer throwing in the bonus smart bulb — you’ve got to go through Amazon for that freebie.)
MORE GREAT DEALS ON ECHO DEVICES, BUNDLES, AND ACCESSORIES:
Fire TV deals
4K Ultra HD with support for HDR, HDR 10, HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision
Dolby Atmos audio
8GB of storage space
It may not be the newest model out there, but the 2018 Fire TV Stick 4K is the top-selling streaming media player on Amazon (and a Mashable’s Choice Award-winner!) for a reason. It’s currently on backorder until Nov. 12, but you can buy one today to lock in its Alexa birthday sale pricing of $29.99 — that’s $20 off its $49.99 MSRP.
MORE GREAT DEALS ON FIRE TV DEVICES, DISPLAYS, AND ACCESSORIES:
OUR TOP PICK: Kindle (10th Gen)
Built-in front light
6-inch glare-free screen
8GB of storage space
Boasting a 4.5/5-star rating on Amazon with more than 23,500 reviews, last year’s Kindle e-reader is now on sale for just $59.99 (down $30 from its $90 MSRP) and comes with three free months of Kindle Unlimited (normally $9.99/month) so you can start building out your digital library right away.
MORE GREAT DEALS ON KINDLE BUNDLES:
OUR TOP PICK: Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus
Keep an eye out for the things that go bump in the night with the bestselling Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus, which came out this past April: Amazon has it on sale for $159.99, which is a sweet $70 off its suggested retail price of $229.99.
