Now that Black Friday is in the rear view mirror, vendors are shifting their focus to Cyber Monday, the other big shopping day in November. And just as with the Black Friday shopping bonanza, stores are looking to get a jump on things with early sales. Count Amazon among them. The world's largest online retailer feasts on events like this and is already offering Cyber Monday discounts on a bunch of items.
"Customers can find deep discounts across a wide selection of the season’s hottest products across every department, from Amazon Devices to toys, electronics, fashion, beauty and more," Amazon says.
Amazon's Cyber Monday event is in effect right now and runs until December 1. There will be new deals posted daily, and if you're a Prime member, you'll get a 30-minute head start over non-Prime members on Lightning Deals.
So, what bargains are available? Let's start with a selection of Echo devices, some of which come with deeper discounts when buying two or three units instead of one (as noted below)...
- All-New Echo Dot: $24 (save $25.99)
- Echo Dot Kids Edition: $49.99 (save $20 on one, or $110 on three)
- Echo (2nd Gen): $69 (save $30.99 on one, or $80 on two)
- All-New Echo Plus: $109.99 (save $40)
- Echo Spot: $89.99 (save $40, or save $100 on two)
- All-New Echo Show: $179.99 (save $50 on one, or $120 on two)
As a bonus, you can add an Amazon Smart Plug to any Echo device for $5 (normally sells for $24.99). This nifty accessory works with Alexa to add voice control to any outlet, essentially turning 'dummy' devices into 'smart' ones. For example, you can plug a regular lamp into the Smart Plug and then use Alexa to turn it on and off with your voice. You can also set up timed events and even control your gadgets remotely through the Alexa app.
In addition to bargains on Echo devices and accessories, Amazon has marked down a bunch of Fire TV and tablet devices. Here's a look at some of the deals...
