List Of Amazon Black Friday Deals (Current & Upcoming – Updated)

This post has now been stickied, for newer posts keep scrolling. Rather than creating a new post for each deal, I thought I’d add lead up deals to this post and repost it when appropriate. Sitewide and other specials will still get a dedicated post. Links in this post contain our affiliate link. Deals under current deals are sorted newest by oldest.

Just a heads-up: If anybody wants the Fire TV Stick 4k with Alexa Voice Remote for $25 today (no waiting until the 24th), you can get it for $25 ($24.99, to be exact) right now using the promo code 4KFIRETV at checkout. I just did so a few days ago.

i would actually like to upgrade my Fire stick but i don’t want alexa. is there an option for someone like me?

Don’t press the button on the remote. If you are concerned they may be listening at all times (haven’t seen any investigative evidence of that with the Firestick products), a dab of hot glue in the microphone hole should satisfy the concern.

They most definitely do not listen unless you say the Alexa keyword. It’s a pretty easy experiment. Open up Wireshark and scan Alexa’s wireless packets while shes running. You can easily see that Alexa only sends a heartbeat packet with no data every once in a while and that is it. They are absolutely not listening UNTIL you say the keyword. After that though, it’s fair game.

What if she saves your conversation when you are talking to her and send it when you talk to her

You can (likely) pair your new Fire TV Stick 4K with a remote that doesn’t have a microphone. Maybe track down a years-old version of the Fire TV stick and try to see if that remote (without a microphone) can be paired with the new Stick 4K.

But Alexa is only listening when you press the button on the remote. So if you don’t press the button on the remote, that’s all you need to do.

(Also) I’m not home right now, so I can’t check my Fire TV and verify what I am about to say, but: I imagine there is a menu option to fully turn off Alexa. So even if you press the button, it won’t turn on.

Or you can go for a low-tech solution and cover the microphone on the remote with vinyl electrical tape or something like that (black tape to match the black remote). That should be more than enough to block the microphone from picking up anything if you accidentally press the button (anything more than muffled, unintelligible noises). If you are worried about it, just wrap it up (good advice for many things in life).

A couple things about the Ring indoor cameras. If this is for the new indoor camera, it’s only a $20 savings since each camera is $60, or $120 for 2. Also, I don’t think these cameras are worth it for some people – I returned mine because they cut a lot of corners in the housing and mounting articulation compared to the 2nd gen Ring Stick-Up Camera (wired), so it can’t mount with a good field of view in a corner or near a ceiling.

The 2nd gen Ring Stick-Up Camera (wired) used to be $180 but is on sale in a lot of places now. For instance, Ring Protect Plus members can get a 2 pack + a free solar powered Security sign for $163 which stacks with AMEX $30 off $150 Ring offer, which roughly equates to $60 each. I feel like that’s a lot better deal than this since it has better mounting articulation among other things.

Recommend anyone interested in those Amazon audio/visual products first read the book “1984.”

If you want to know what Amazon thinks of that book, you should read this article: https://io9.gizmodo.com/amazon-secretly-removes-1984-from-the-kindle-5317703

“An uproar followed, with outraged customers pointing out the irony that Amazon was deleting copies of a novel about a fascist media state that constantly alters history by changing digital records of what has happened.”

I try to go to a cool bookstore when I visit places while traveling. When I went to London this year the lady at the bookstore actually recommended that book to me and that’s what I brought back with me as a souvenir from there. Now I’m more excited to read it!! Lol thanks

If you haven’t been paying attention, the CIA/NSA has already infiltrated your smart phones, TVs, etc. Warrantless stingray devices routinely transfer your location to law enforcement. Your phone can be forced to communicate this information even if you’ve set it to airplane mode or turned it off. Microphones and cameras on your phones, tablets and laptops can be routinely remotely and clandestinely activated by law enforcement and other nefarious actors, in addition to apps which you’ve happened to give microphone permission to (haha, Facebook sure needed that, right?)

Sure, if you don’t want another mic, don’t get one. But don’t pretend like your current setup has you miraculously protected either.

Some people just love these conspiracy theories. Amazon does indeed sell 1984. Check out their website.

FYI – they didn’t delete it from the store. They deleted from devices after people bought the book. Dismissing things that actually happen as “conspiracy theories” makes you look look like an idiot.

(I thought it was deleted by a rogue employee – probably on his last day of work).

Andrew Sillers

gman The issue in this case was that someone other than the publisher uploaded an unauthorized listing of 1984 and sold it briefly. Amazon did indeed remove the unauthorized listing, and as a result, the Kindle operating system deleted already-downloaded copies of the unauthorized listing of 1984 from users’ devices, to mirror it’s removal from Amazon’s e-book store. The publisher-authorized version of 1984 was obviously not affected.

One way of expressing the concern here is: Kindle devices answer to Amazon first and users second. This isn’t really a conspiracy theory so much as Amazon’s stated business model (Kindle devices are ultimately a loss leader to promote sales of e-books, after all). However, this is just about Amazon’s management of content on its platforms, not anything to do with Alexa.

Quick question for anybody in the know: Are these deals one-day-only deals or do the deals last for multiple days once live?

For example, the Amazon Smart Plug deal is live on the 27th. And the various discounted Echo products are live on the 28th. But the Amazon Smart Plug deal requires the purchase of an Echo Dot. Could I buy a discounted Echo product on the 28th with the discounted Amazon Smart Plug? Or is that not possible?

(Trying to plan a little ‘Starter Kit’ of various smart home products for my parents this Christmas. A few $5 smart plugs with a few discounted Echo devices would be a good place to start.)

Thanks in advance for any answers. Much appreciated.

Deals can be pulled at any time. You could certainly try adding both to your cart and see if the discounted prices are still available.

Would love to know your ideas if Amazon and/or Best Buy may discount on the newest model of Kindle Oasis. Excellent device, but can be nicer if a price match later

I’m doubtful a substantial discount would happen until a newer model is announced. Amazon offers significant discounts less frequently on flagship products. There may be something, but it won’t be jawdropping, my guess

Can you return it and repurchase? Especially if you bought it on a return protection cc.

Picked up a Fire 7 before for $30, pretty happy with it. Works as a nice remote for Spotify, decent for timers, recipes, etc. Battery is kind of mediocre, and yeah it’s not some insane resolution, but it’s good enough. Give it to a young kid to watch Netflix on and you won’t cringe everytime he drops it. You could mount it in your bathroom and have a handy remote to set music for your shower. Fun thing.

All Amazon ever seems to offer anymore on their “deals” is insanely cheap Amazon spy devices to help them collect more data and monitor more and more of what you do and say to make even more profit. It amazes me when they are marketed like actual “deals” and people buy them. I remember when they actually offered sales on real merchandise not made and owned by them.

I worked as an Amazon delivery driver for around 6 months, they would have “competitions” where the winner got an Echo Dot, and then they’d end up handing them out to half of us anyway even though there was only one winner.
