Black Friday is over, but a lot of deals refuse to call it quits. They’ll continue into the week and join new Cyber Monday deals. We’ve rounded up the best products that Amazon makes. Some of these devices are backordered into late December and January, but if you buy them while Cyber Monday sales are on, Amazon will honor the sale price, even if it takes a little while for the package to show up on your doorstep.It’s important to note that, while many of these deals are available from Amazon, other stores will price-match these offers if you wish to shop elsewhere. You can also head directly to Amazon for a less-organized (and we hope, less insightful!) Device Deals roundup.Note: We will update this post with new deals as we find them. If an item is no longer at its deal price or sold out, we cross it out. Deal prices sometimes return and items come back in stock faster than we can update, so it never hurts to check for yourself.WIRED’s Cyber Monday CoverageAbsolute Best Cyber Monday DealsCamera and Drone DealsLaptop and Tablet DealsTV and Soundbar DealsVideogame and Console DealsHeadphone and Speaker DealsSmartphone and Gadget DealsOutdoor and Fitness DealsDeals Under $50Home, Kitchen, and Mattress DealsDeals That Make Great GiftsGoogle Deals and Amazon Deals (You are here!)Deals: OLED TV, Wirefree Earbuds, iPad 10.2All Our Cyber Monday Articles, Tips, and Holiday GuidesWhen you buy something using the links in our stories, we may earn a small affiliate commission.

Use Alexa to check the weather, stream music, control compatible devices, and more. Check out this buying guide to figure out which Echo device you should buy. These tips will help keep your privacy intact when placing smart speakers around your house.Echo Dot for $22 ($28 off)Amazon, Target, Best Buy ($23)This smart home building block is handy and compact. You can place it nearly anywhere. It sounds pretty good for its size, and this sale is the first time we’ve seen significant savings on the newly-released Plum version.Echo Dot with Clock for $35 ($25 off)Amazon (backordered)Amazon’s newest iteration of the Echo Dot has a built-in LED clock display. While that feature is nice, it isn’t necessary, unless you use your Dot as an alarm clock or timer frequently. In those instances, spending a bit more on this version is worthwhile.Echo Auto for $30 ($20 off)Amazon, Best BuyAlexa? In your car? It’s more likely than you think. This device uses your smartphone’s Bluetooth signal to broadcast content through your vehicle speakers. You can ask Alexa to change the song, play an audiobook, look up directions, or re-order laundry detergent. I think it’s a little silly, but then again, so are fuzzy dice.Echo 3rd-Generation Speaker for $60 ($40 off)Amazon, Target, Best BuyThis speaker has the same Alexa functionality as the Echo Dot but features much better sound. Where the Echo Dot is a smart voice assistant that just so happens to be capable of streaming music, the Echo is a decent speaker that happens to have a voice assistant built-in.Echo Show 5 Smart Display for $50 ($40 off)Amazon, Target, Best BuyThis device takes Alexa and gives her a screen. The display is small, making this a better option for a nightstand as opposed to a kitchen counter. Check out our guide to smart displays to learn what your options are.Photograph: AmazonEcho Show for $150 ($80 off)AmazonIf you’re looking for an Alexa device with a display, this is the version you want. It has better sound and a much bigger screen than the version mentioned above, which also explains its higher overall price. Still, we think it’s a good option for watching videos, viewing recipes, and other tasks where a display could come in handy.Echo Input for $15 ($20 off)AmazonThis device connects to an existing speaker and transforms it into an Alexa device. If you already have a sweet speaker setup, but you want a voice assistant, this might be the perfect fit.Echo Sub for $110 ($20 off)AmazonHate how your music sounds on your Echo device? Add bass. A lot more bass. This 100-watt subwoofer adds a more dynamic room-filling sound, and you can pair two external Echo devices with it for a stereo experience. Note that a separate device, like an Echo Dot, is required to use the Echo Sub.Echo Flex for $20 ($5 off)AmazonThis miniature Alexa device adds the voice assistant to a wall outlet. We know how silly it sounds. Still, it might be handy if your living space has limited receptacles, or if you want to have a helper somewhere like in the garage or on the patio. There is a USB port for charging your phone or other gear too.Best Fire Tablet DealsPhotograph: AmazonCheck out our Fire Tablet guide to figure out which (if any) is best for you. Fire tablets are incredibly cheap but are also mostly made for streaming, basic tasks, and entertaining kiddos.Fire HD 8 for $50 ($30 off)Amazon, Best BuyThis is our favorite Fire tablet overall. It’s portable and shares many features with its larger, 10-inch sibling.Fire HD 8 Kids Edition for $80 ($50 off)Amazon, Target, Best BuyThis is a great pick for younger kids, and the two-year worry-free guarantee ensures that you’ll get a replacement if your child manages to break it.Fire 7 Tablet for $30 ($20 off)Amazon, Target, Best BuyThis isn’t our favorite tablet. In fact, we recommend avoiding it, especially since the bigger and better version is just $20 more for Cyber Monday. Still, it’s on sale, so if you were ever to go against our recommendations, now would the time. (But don’t!)Fire 7 Kids Edition for $60 ($40 off)Amazon, Target, Best BuySimilarly to the grownup version, the Fire 7 Kids Edition doesn’t cut it when compared to the HD 8 Kids Edition. One exception is if your child still has especially tiny hands.Fire HD 10 for $100 ($50 off)Amazon, Target, Best BuyThis model is the best Fire tablet on the market. We noted in our guide that has a bit more processing power than the Fire HD 8, and the larger screen is great for watching videos.Best Fire TV DealsPhotograph: AmazonFire TV devices offer a neat way to stream content without needing cable or a smart TV—though they strongly push you to use Amazon services to stream that content (though they do have Netflix and other major apps). You can even check out WIRED with one. As with so many tech products these days, there are some privacy concerns you should be aware of.Fire TV Stick with 4K with Alexa Voice Remote for $25 ($25 off)Amazon (backordered), Target, Best BuyThis is the upgraded Fire TV Stick, and it’s a great option if you stream 4K content. The included Alexa Voice Remote lets you control media playback using Alexa, which is a nice (if not wholly necessary) feature.Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote for $20 ($20 off)Amazon (backordered), Target, Best BuyThis baseline model is less expensive than the aforementioned version, but for just $5 more, we’d suggest future-proofing by picking up the 4K option.Fire TV Cube for $90 ($30 off)Amazon, Best BuyThis product is basically an Amazon Fire TV with some extra Alexa voice assistant functions built into it. We have mixed feelings on using voice, but it’s still a decent Fire TV. You can use it to control compatible smart home devices, like lights or your television itself. However, if you have any other Alexa devices around, combining the two features isn’t really necessary.Fire TV Recast for $130 ($100 off)AmazonThis matches the price we saw on Prime Day. This box acts as a DVR, recording and streaming your over-the-air broadcasts to a Fire TV-friendly device. You can opt for the 4-tuner model with 1 TB of storage for $180, which is also a $100 discount.Best Kindle DealsPhotograph: AmazonAmazon’s Kindle ebook readers don’t go on sale very often, making now a great time to pick one up. Check out our Kindle buying guide to figure out which model is the best fit for you. Amazon’s deals also include a $5 Kindle e-book credit upon activation of your device.Kindle Paperwhite for $85 ($45 off)Amazon (backordered), Target, Best BuyThis recently-improved Kindle is a worthwhile upgrade over the base version. It’s waterproof and features a clearer display than its predecessor.Kindle (2019 Edition) for $60 ($30 off)Amazon, Best BuyThis base model is nearly identical to the Kindle Paperwhite, minus the water resistance. Senior reviewer, Adrienne So, gave this gadget an 8/10 WIRED Recommends award in her in-depth review.Kindle Oasis for $175 ($75 off)AmazonThis is Amazon’s top-of-the-line Kindle. It has an adjustable warm light, which is easier on your eyes than harsher cool tones, especially before bed. It’s waterproof as well, and it’s the only Kindle with page-turn buttons.Best Home and Security DealsPhotograph: AmazonAmazon has a slew of home security devices available. This gear can help you keep better tabs on your property, though we do have some privacy concerns.Ring Alarm Enhanced Protection Kit With Free Echo Dot for $249 ($110 off)AmazonAlong with the base station to coordinate it all, the kit includes a keypad, a panic button, a flood and freeze sensor, seven contact sensors that can be used to monitor doors and windows, two motion detectors, a device that can hear if your smoke detector or carbon monoxide detector go off, and a range extender so your base station can reach them all—even in a big house.Blink XT2 3-Camera Kit With Free Echo Dot for $185 ($65 off)AmazonThese cameras feature motion detection and two-way communication. You can place or mount them nearly anywhere, indoors or outdoors.Ring Indoor Cam Two-Pack for $120 ($20 off)Amazon (backordered)These indoor-only cameras work with Alexa and have a compact footprint. It supports two-way audio, for the times you want to talk to your dog when you’re away from home. You’ll need to buy a subscription if you want to record all your videos and review clips from the past 60 days.Ring Floodlight Camera With Free Echo Dot for $199 ($100 off)AmazonTwo motion-activated floodlights flick 1,800 lumens upon anything that crosses their sensor. When that happens, the unit sends an alert to your phone, PC, or tablet so you can view the 1080p video feed live. Two-way audio lets you talk to and listen to anyone who happens to be near the floodlight.AmazonBasics Microwave bundle for $60 ($50 off)AmazonThis kitchen gadget might be a little silly, but it’s on sale with a free Echo Dot. You can use it intuitively. Ask Alexa to reheat some food, for instance, and the microwave will do the rest.Echo Connect for $13 ($22 off)AmazonTurn your landline telephone into an Alexa-connected speakerphone. You need an Echo speaker to use it, landline phone service, and a landline telephone—that is, if you still have a landline. The Connect will sync with your phone contacts in the Alexa app (on your cellular telephone), so you can make and answer calls without having to go find the telephone to dial.Echo Wall Clock for $24 ($6 off)AmazonAside from working like a traditional analog clock, this model features LED lights that sync up with your Echo devices. Rather than piping up and asking Alexa how much time is left before you need to take the turkey out of the oven, you can glance at the clock and see a visual indicator.Eero Pro Mesh Wi-Fi System for $209 ($90 off)AmazonThe Eero Pro tri-band router has enough Wi-Fi signal to cover 1,750 square feet, and pairing it with the included Eero Beacon adds another 1,500 square feet of coverage. If your house is bigger than that, you can add more beacons. Two ethernet ports give you the option of a wired connection.Best Bundle DealsPhotograph: AmazonSometimes you can combine discounts to save even more. Amazon also frequently tosses in a free or cheap item with some of its Cyber Monday deals.Ring Video Doorbell Pro + Echo Show 5 for $179 ($160 off)AmazonThese devices work together. The Ring Video Doorbell Pro shows you who is at the door, either on your phone, tablet, computer, or Echo Show 5. You can speak to and hear visitors as well. Echo Show 5 is basically Alexa with a screen, so you can use it to view recipes, watch videos, and more. Note that Ring products require a subscription to unlock all of the available features. Subscriptions start at $3 per month.Amazon Smart Plug for $5 ($20 off)—If You Buy an EchoAmazonSnag this smart plug for only $5 when you bundle it with another Amazon device, like the $22 Echo Dot. Eligible bundle options include the smart plug and your choice of the Echo Dot, Echo Dot with Clock, Echo Speaker (3rd Gen), Echo Show 5, or Echo Studio.Cyber Monday Retailer Sales PagesWe’ve sifted through most of these major sales for you.
