What are the 4.5 best Amazon Black Friday deals?

best amazon black friday deals

Forget Brexit for a moment. Today marks the first day of Amazon’s Black Friday deals, and there are four true bargains that have caught our eye. Well, 4.5, but we’ll come to that. Here, in a very particular order, are our choices for best Amazon Black Friday deals.

All-new Echo Dot (3rd Gen)

Was £49.99. Buy now for £24.99

It’s almost worth buying this cheeky little speaker now even if you’re not sure what to do with it. A great present and you can even add it to your car if you’re feeling clever (although you may find the 2nd Gen Echo Dot, now £20, fits more neatly – and don’t forget the forthcoming Echo Auto).

All-new Kindle Paperwhite

Was £119.99. Buy now for £89.99

I love my Kindle Paperwhite, but this new version offers two tempting reasons to upgrade: it’s now waterproof and supports Audible audiobooks. Just note there’s no 3.5mm jack, so it’s via Bluetooth only. Still, it’s a lovely wee thing and great for book lovers.

Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote

Was £39.99. Buy now for £24.99

Here’s another product that I bought with my own money… and now it’s dropped from £40 to £25. Still, I’m glad I bought it when I did, because I’ve been enjoying its slick interface to switch between Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, not to mention other on-demand services such as BBC iPlayer.

Amazon Echo (2nd Gen)

Was £89.99. Buy now for £54.99

If you’re looking for a full-bodied speaker then the latest Echo was already a bit of a bargain at £89.99. If you’ve resisted so far, I suspect this £35 drop in price might just push you over the edge…

Amazon Smart Plug

Was £24.99. Buy now for £9.99 if you buy an Echo device

No prizes for guessing what the Smart Plug does, and at £10 it’s an incredibly tempting buy if you’ve already been lured by an Echo. 

Please note: if you click on the links (or photos) then The Big Tech Question gets a small slice of the revenue from your purchase. While we’re always grateful for the income, this will never affect our buying recommendations – we’ve hand-selected these products because we believe they’re genuinely worth buying.
