Amazon's Black Friday strategy is similar to Amazon's Prime Day strategy: Solid discounts on all kinds of Amazon devices – Echo speakers and screens, Fire tablets and TV sticks, Kindle e-readers and so on – and "everything else. " We've already got a taste of the latter thanks to Amazon's Happy HoliDeals page, which has a lot of variety, but also a smattering of Amazon equipment.
As of late November 6, the company has unveiled the entire slate of Black Friday unit deals, many of which compete with what we saw during this year's Prime Day.
So here's the list of what's to come and when, followed by some previously announced deals you can get right now.
Amazon deals start Friday 22. November
Amazon deals start Sunday November 24
Amazon deals start Wednesday, November 27
Amazon deals start Thursday, November 28
Amazon Black Friday deals available now
As expected some of the best early discounts on Amazon devices (although some of the items below will be even cheaper in a few weeks, as mentioned above). But I found a few notable non-Amazon deals too, so let's start with these.
Do you have any saliva left? Send some to 23andMe and receive back over 125 DNA-based reports on health, wellness, ancestry and the like. This is the lowest price we have seen on this set, which normally runs $ 199.
Actually, this app-powered garage door controller originally sold for $ 130, so in a way you save $ 100. It has regularly crept into price, but this is the lowest I've seen it. It is compatible with most garage doors and its utility cannot be overstated. By far the best $ 30 you can spend on your house right now.

Yep, there's nowhere near Black Friday, and Echo Show 5 is already selling for less than it was on Prime Day. The 5.5-inch small smart speaker is a great companion by the bed, but it can also draw kitchen duties for things like recipe videos and video calls. Please note that this will be $ 10 cheaper from November 28.

The largest of the Echo Show products, this model has a 10-inch display and Dolby-enhanced speakers. Normally it runs $ 230, but this package gives you a Philips Hue smart bulb to kick start (or extend) your smart home layout.

It didn't take long. Echo Dot with Clock, which was announced just last month, is already severely reduced. It is basically the third gen smart speaker you know and love, but with a built-in LED display that can show time, outdoor temperature or a countdown timer. However, this product will drop to $ 35 November 28.
Don't need these features? The original Echo Dot is back for sale for $ 30 now, and will drop to $ 22 on November 28 .
