Amazon Black Friday 2018 Deals: The Biggest Sales Right Now

Updated

Update Nov. 20 at 2:50am ET: Amazon Warehouse is taking an extra 20 percent off refurb devices including cameras, TVs, and toys. 

Amazon's Seven Days of Black Friday is officially here, and while you'll find hundreds of devices on sale, we're here to show you the deals that matter the most — starting with deals on Amazon's own hardware.

Also, the retailer has announced that it's offering free shipping (between 5 to 8 days delivery) with no minimum purchase or Prime membership required (a first for the e-commerce giant). Of course, if you want that speedy 1-to-2 day delivery, you can sign up for Prime and cancel after your trial.

Amazon Deals You Can Buy Now

Amazon's Fire TV streaming devices are now on sale. The Fire TV Cube is at its lowest price ever and the Fire TV Stick 4K is on sale for the first time. Even the Fire TV Recast is on sale.

The retailer also has a handful of Fire Tablets on sale. All of these tablets are at their lowest price of the year, however, you'll see better savings when you buy two of the same device. For instance, the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Tablet is on sale for $149.99 ($50 off). That's a good deal, but buy two and you'll pay $249.98, which is $150 off. Deals include:

Confirmed Amazon Black Friday Deals Coming Soon

As for Amazon's Black Friday deals, those will start on November 16 and include many previous-gen devices alongside steep discounts on current-gen hardware like the new Echo Dot ($24), and new Echo Show ($179.99). Here's everything you need to know about Amazon's upcoming Black Friday deals. 

Starting Wednesday, November 21  

Starting Thursday, November 22  

Amazon states that the devices will be on sale for a short time, so we recommend checking their site as early as you can on those given days. This can only make us wonder what will be on sale on Black Friday proper. 

Also, QVC has this 2nd-Gen Echo Speaker 2-Pack on sale for $99.98. Traditionally, each speaker alone costs $99.99. If you buy two at Amazon, the retailer will take $30 off for a final price of $169.99. QVC undercuts Amazon by $70. Moreover, if you're a first-time QVC shopper, you can use coupon "FIVE4U" to drop the price even lower to $94.98. This could very well be the best Echo deal of the year if you're in the market for two Echo speakers.

Early Toy Deals: What to Buy Now/Expect

With the demise of Toys "R" Us, retailers like Amazon will offer more toy deals than ever this Black Friday season. We expect to see deals on STEM kits (up to 45 percent off), Star Wars Lego (up to 30 percent off), and inventor kits such as the littlebits Star Wars Droid, which is currently at an all-time low of $68.

Amazon to Sell More Apple Devices

Amazon and Apple have reached an agreement that will allow Cupertino to sell more of its devices on Amazon, reports Cnet. The list of products includes iPhones such as the iPhone XR and iPhone XS. Having one more retailer selling Apple products could usher in better deals. Although keep in mind that the report didn't address if Amazon will be able to offer discounts on the new products.

In a statement released to Tom's Guide, an Amazon spokesperson said, "Amazon is constantly working to enhance the customer experience, and one of the ways we do this is by increasing selection of the products we know customers want. We look forward to expanding our assortment of Apple and Beats products globally."

The spokesperson wouldn't comment on potential Apple deals through Amazon. Nevertheless, it's a space we'll be watching closely in the coming weeks.

While Black Friday has yet to arrive, Amazon has already got some offers up on its digital shelves that you should check out, including some for top-of-the-range tech from big name brands.


While some of Amazon’s deals are time or stock sensitive, we’ve collected together the best of the offers that are sticking around, including smartphones, a Roomba robot vacuum cleaner, and a stylish pair of B&O headphones.
