Black Friday Deals Under $ 30 – AVAILABLE NOW
These are the cheapest Black Friday deals available right now.
If you have a newcomer to the Amazon music streaming service, it's hard to beat the buck for four full months of service. You will then pay the regular rate of $ 9.99 per month, although you can cancel at any time without penalty.
Assuming you are no longer included in the Echo ecosystem of smart speakers, Home Mini is a non-intelligence buyer for $ 25. Of course, there is a newer model (Nest Mini) that is even better, but it will cost you $ 49. Home Mini still sounds very good in size and offers many features that work with Google Assistant. It is even better if you pair the two together.
The link below will take you to Walmart, but the Home Mini also sells for $ 25 at Best Buy, Target and several other stores.

Black 1965 Offers Deals Under $ 30 – Coming Soon
These are deals you should look into in the near future.
Introduce your own vinyl collection and experience the magic with this portable style chest case that doubles as a Bluetooth speaker. It can play back recordings at three different speeds and has RCA output ports in case you want to connect it to traditional stereo.
Amazon Echo Dot deals are just as routine as the tides, but this one is as good as it gets. The total sale price is $ 30; can occasionally dive up to $ 25. So $ 22 is remarkable. This is the third-generation Dot (but not the slightly modified new one with the clock), great for throwing Alexa commands into just about any room that's decent for playing tunes.

Updated for 2019 with more storage space and a faster processor, the Fire 7 remains an incredible buy at its regular price of $ 50. So for $ 30? Yes, honestly there is no better choice for anyone who wants to read, watch videos, play games and all that. This is a particularly good choice for children.

Has there ever been a cheaper streamer? Not for our memory. Walmart-Exclusive comes with HDMI cable and quarterly Hulu and Pandora subscriptions. Available online starting at 19:00. PT on Wednesday, November 27th.
Note, however, that SE does not make 4K video. If this is important to you, consider the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, which will retail for $ 25.
