For what feels like the billionth time this year, Amazon is once again throwing a massive sale on an assortment of its own devices. This time, however, it’s in honor of Black Friday, even though the marquee shopping event doesn’t actually take place until November 24th.

Not that we’re complaining. A lot of the standout deals we last saw during Amazon’s recent Prime Day event are back, after all, giving you yet another opportunity to save on the new Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max, the Echo Pop, and the Kindle Scribe, among other tech. In some cases, Amazon is even offering steeper discounts than we saw in October, which is also the case at Best Buy, Target, and other retailers.

Here, we’ve rounded up the best Black Friday deals you can already get on Amazon devices. We’ll also continue to update this post, along with our guide to the best early Black Friday deals as more deals trickle in.

//this line summons a table of contents. use as follows!

//initiateTOC takes the arguments “header”, “subheader”, “collapsible”

//for whatever header type (“h2”, “h3” etc) you want to be the main header, type it in quotes in the function call.

//if you don’t want subheads, set to false in the function call (no quotes)

//collapsible is a true/false toggle

//if you want a specific, unlinked title just add a string at the end in double quotes, e.g. false, “h3”, false, “This is the title”

//see graham if you have any questions/issues

// note that all the header types are off by one: an h1 in the CMS is an h2 in the actual code. If you just want h2 and h3 to show up in the TOC you need to call them h3 and h4.

The best TV and streaming device deals

  • Amazon’s new Fire TV Soundbar is on sale at Amazon for $99.99 ($20 off), which matches its best price to date. The 24-inch soundbar offers robust sound for its size, along with compatibility with Amazon’s streaming devices and Fire TV televisions. It also supports Dolby Audio and Bluetooth as well as both ARC and eARC. Read our hands-on impressions.
  • You can buy the Alexa Voice Remote Pro for $27.99 ($7 off) at Amazon and Best Buy. The backlit remote features a pair of programmable buttons and, should you ever lose it, comes with a remote finder feature so you can easily find it by asking Alexa where it is. Read our review.

The best video doorbell deals

  • The Blink Video Doorbell is once again cheaper than ever at $47.49 (half off) at Amazon and Best Buy with a Blink Sync Module 2 included, which allows for local storage. The 1080p video doorbell is our favorite budget option, namely because it supports essentials like motion-activated recording and alerts, two-way audio, and night vision.

The best smart display deals

  • The last-gen Echo Show 8 is on sale for $49.99 at Amazon, which is a new all-time low. While the newer Echo Show 8 can function as a smart home hub and delivers better sound, Amazon’s last-gen smart display still sounds great and can perform a wide range of Alexa-enabled tasks. Read our review.

The best speaker and earbud deals

  • Amazon’s Echo Studio has dropped to its all-time low of $154.99 ($45 off) at Best Buy and Amazon (with a free Kasa smart bulb). The large speaker remains the best-sounding Echo speaker you can buy, one that also works as a home theater speaker. Read our review.
  • If you don’t need noise cancellation, you can grab the new Echo Buds for $34.99 ($15 off) at Amazon, which matches their all-time low. The wireless earbuds integrate well with Alexa and, thanks to their semi-open design, make it easy to remain aware of your surroundings.

The best security camera deals

  • The Blink Wired Floodlight Camera is available for $49.99 (half off) at Amazon, matching its best price to date. Based on our limited time testing the device, we think this could be a good budget-friendly pick. It offers 2,600 lumens of brightness, records in 1080p, and comes with on-device processing of people alerts.
  • Amazon Prime members can request an invite to buy a pair of last-gen Blink Outdoor cameras at a later date for $62.99 ($117 off). The 1080 cameras lack the person detection found on the newer model but feature motion detection, night vision, and long battery life.
  • The Blink Mini is on sale again for its all-time low of $19.99 ($15 off) at Amazon. The basic 1080 security camera supports two-way audio and can send notifications when it detects motion, but you’ll need to pay extra for a subscription if you want to take advantage of cloud storage and access other features. Read our review.
  • Amazon is selling the latest Ring Indoor Cam for $29.99 (half off), which matches its Prime Day price. The wired security camera comes with a physical privacy shutter and records in 1080p. Note again, however, that you’ll need to pay for a subscription to use some features, including the ability to view motion-activated recordings.
  • You can buy the Ring Stick Up Cam for $59.99 ($40 off) at Amazon, which matches its all-time low. You can mount the battery-powered camera just about anywhere, letting you use it both indoors and outdoors.

The best e-reader and tablet deals

  • You can buy the refurbished Kindle Oasis at Amazon with ads and 8GB of storage starting at $154.99, which is $96 cheaper than buying it new. Although the e-reader lacks USB-C support like newer Kindles, it does come with page-turning buttons and a sharp display. Keep in mind that the Oasis dropped to $164.99 in new condition during Black Friday last year, however, meaning you might be able to pick it up for the same price this year. Read our review.
  • Amazon is also offering an assortment of discounted Kindle bundles for the Kindle Scribe ($340.97) as well as the latest Kindle Kids ($132.97) and Kindle Paperwhite Kids ($167.97). The latter two are similar to the standard models but lack ads and come with optional parental controls. All of the bundles include various accessories, though, like covers and power adapters, as well as screen protectors for the kid-friendly e-readers. Read our reviews of the latest Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite.

The best deals on other Amazon devices

  • Amazon is selling the midrange Eero 6 Plus — a dual-band, gigabit mesh router — for $89.99 ($50 off), its lowest price to date. You can also buy a pack of two or three for $154.99 ($85 off) and $194.99 ($105 off), respectively.
  • The Amazon Echo Glow is once again matching its all-time low of $16.99 ($14 off) at Amazon. The kid-friendly smart lamp can play music and change color, while simultaneously functioning as an Alexa-enabled sleep timer.
