October is almost gone, but Amazon Epic Daily Deals are still going strong. The sales event, which kicked off at the start of the month, is Amazon's reminder that the holiday season is right around the corner.

The deals are open to anyone; no Prime membership is required. Today's epic deal knocks has Amazon's smart Fire TVs on sale from $99 (opens in new tab)

Keep in mind, Black Friday deals will trump many of today's Amazon Epic Daily Deals. So we've added some buying advice to many items we think will be cheaper in November. Likewise, we've flagged devices that are cheaper now than they were last year. So if you want to get your Black Friday shopping done early — here as the best Amazon Epic Daily Deals you can get today.
