Back in October, we told you that there are 6 major product categories that you should not buy. High on this list was any Amazon device. And now we can happily say: We told you so. Amazon representatives just sent us an email with an early list of what is expected to be sold, and when – and it includes some of Prime Day's best prices back in July.
We have listed the full number of transactions below. This is a continuous sale: Some deals start on November 22 (the Friday before Thanksgiving), with more devices added every few days during Thanksgiving.
Please note that we have included price sales and links, but sales prices are not available until the specified dates. Plan your shopping accordingly. Can't wait? Here are the best deals.
From November 22: Fire Pills, Kindle Paperwhite and others
The price drop starts from November 22 ̵
Save $ 50 on Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. It's the same hardware as above, but with 32GB of storage, a rubberized case, a year of FreeTime Unlimited (child-friendly content) and a 2-year warranty for trouble-free damage.
See the Amazon Fire 8 Kids Edition tablet review.
The Amazon Fire 7 tablet, updated for 2019, typically costs $ 50. During this Black Friday sale, it will be only $ 30. However, we strongly recommend upgrading to the 8-inch model below for only $ 20.

From November 24: Fire Television Products
The Sunday before Thanksgiving, Amazon is adding more devices to its sales list.
From November 27: Flashing cameras, doorbells and smart $ 5
The day before Thanksgiving means even more to sell.
Blink XT2 is a weatherproof camera with a battery that can last for two years. Getting two packages for $ 100 is a good deal. (There were 2 packages available during Prime Day at a lower price.)

November 28: Echo Speakers and Smart Displays
Happy Thanksgiving! While basing the turkey, you can buy a good bit of Amazon's updated Echo line at some very discounted prices.
Back to its lowest premium day, the Echo Dot (without the watch) puts all of Amazon's assistant Alex's smarts in a small, affordable package. Even at its normal price of $ 50, it's a good deal, so the price of $ 22 is still something to celebrate. With voice commands you can control your smart home, check the weather, play music, search the web and more. You lose a little bit of audio quality at a smaller size, but you can plug it into your own speakers to make up the difference.

But come on … you want the newer, cooler version with the built-in clock, right? It was just unveiled in September for $ 60, but it will be at its lowest price so far: Only $ 35.

If you want an intelligent speaker with Alexa that has a little more note in terms of sound quality, the latest version of the original Echo might be the right choice for you. The older version of this puppy was selling for $ 50 at one time on Prime Day, but at a list price of $ 100, it's not half bad.

With a 5.5-inch touch screen and the ability to wake you up with exquisite sunrise animation, this is our favorite smart display with Alexa. And at that price it is brainless.

The second-generation Echo Show refines the design of the first model and offers better sound quality and a 10-inch HD screen. It combines the functionality of a smart speaker like the Echo Dot with a touch screen that you can use to make video calls and control your smart home with a touch. We like the Echo Show 5 a little better, but $ 150 for the full show – $ 10 less than Prime Day, which seems to be its lowest ever – is a tempting proposition.

Do you need Alex in your car? Probably not. But who are we to judge? If you've always wanted Amazon's personal assistant on the road, you can now get it for half the price. This is the lowest since it first became available for purchase earlier this year.
