Show more (14 deals)

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2019, your source for the season’s best gifts and deals, hand-picked by the experts at CNET.

Cyber Monday is a great time to consider buying an Amazon device, since the online retailer has discounted the bulk of its homegrown products as much or even more than it did on Prime Day. As the clock is ticking down, look for the lowest prices of the year on items like Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, Fire TV streamers, Ring doorbells and cameras, Echo speakers and Echo Show displays — even the brand-new Echo Show 8 is on sale for $80, though shipping on the device is now delayed. 

Other sales of note include the Fire TV Cube for $90, or $30 off, and the Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote and non-4K version of the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote are each 50% off. The Kindle Oasis 2017 is now priced at an all-time low. And we’re seeing great offers on Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers, including the Kindle Kids Edition for $80, a savings of $30. 

This list represents the best of what’s still available and is updated frequently.

Cyber Monday: Echo speakers and smart displays

A number of products in Amazon’s updated Echo line are still available at discounted prices for Cyber Monday.

Back to its Prime Day low, the Echo Dot (without the clock) puts all of the smarts of Amazon’s assistant Alexa into a small and affordable package. Even at its normal price of $50, it’s a good deal, so the $22 price is still something to celebrate. With voice commands, you can control your smart home, check the weather, play music, search the internet and more. You lose some sound quality with the smaller size, but you can plug it into your own speakers to make up for the difference. Read our Amazon Echo Dot 2018 review.


It’s not even released yet, but Amazon just trotted out its first-ever discount on the Echo Show 8. It’s basically a larger version of the super-popular Echo Show 5 (which is currently on sale for $50, FYI), and therefore better suited to places like the kitchen, where the 8-inch screen makes it easier to view cooking videos and the like.

Note: Amazon is currently showing this item will be in stock on Dec. 20, so expect shipping delays. Read our Echo Show 8 preview.

Save $20 now on an Amazon Echo Input, a nifty device that adds Alexa to an external speaker and connects via 3.5mm audio cable or Bluetooth. Basically, it helps you turn any speaker into a smart speaker.

If you want a smart speaker with Alexa that has a little more oomph to its 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 point on Prime Day, but with a list price of $100, $60 isn’t half bad. Read our Amazon Echo 2019 review.

With a 5.5-inch touchscreen and the ability to wake you up with a nifty sunrise animation, this is our favorite smart display with Alexa. And at this price, it’s a no-brainer. Read our Amazon Echo Show 5 review.

Do you need Alexa in your car? Probably not. But who are we to judge? If you always wanted Amazon’s personal assistant on the road, now you can have it for half price. That’s the lowest since it first became available to buy earlier this year. Read our Echo Auto review.

Fire TV streamers, Blink security cameras, Fire tablets, Kindle Paperwhite and more, on sale now

Here’s everything that is still on sale as of right now:


The Blink XT2 is a weatherproof security camera with a battery that can supposedly last for two years. Getting a two-pack for $100 is a good deal. (There was a two-pack offered during Prime Day at a lower price.) Read our Blink XT2 preview.

Want to save $5? Get the non-4K version of the Fire TV Stick. (This was actually $15 during Prime Day 2019.) Read our Fire TV Stick review.

Save $50 on the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. This is the same hardware as above, but with 32GB of storage built-in, a rubberized case, a year of FreeTime Unlimited (kid-friendly content) and a two-year no-questions-asked replacement warranty for any damage. Read our Amazon Fire 8 Kids Edition Tablet review.

The Fire 7 Tablet, updated for 2019, usually costs $50. During this Cyber Monday sale, it will be just $30. That said, we highly recommend you upgrade to the 8-inch model below for just $20 more. Read our Amazon Fire 7 Tablet review.

The biggest tablet in Amazon’s lineup is the Fire HD 10. This 10-inch model was just updated for 2019 with a faster processor and USB-C charging, too. Normally $150, it’ll be 33% off during this sale period. Read our 2019 Fire HD 10 Tablet preview.

Normally $130, the Paperwhite — the best all-around Kindle e-reader — is back down to just $85 during this sale. And Amazon throws in a $5 e-book credit, too. Read our Kindle Paperwhite 2018 review.

We’d strongly recommend you spend up for the Paperwhite. But if you’re shopping on a budget, the newest entry-level Kindle finally includes a built-in light, and it’s back down to its Prime Day price — with a $5 e-book credit thrown in, too. Read our Kindle 2019 review.

Yes, Amazon just introduced a new Kindle Oasis this year that adds a color-adjustable integrated light that’s easier on the eyes. But that model is $250, and otherwise nearly identical to the 2017 model that Amazon is discounting now to $150, the lowest price we’ve seen. If you’re gifting something to a serious e-book fan, this is a pretty great choice. Read our Kindle Oasis 2017 review.


If you’re a newcomer to Amazon’s music-streaming service, it’s hard to beat a buck for four full months of service. After that, you’ll pay the regular rate of $9.99 a month, though you can cancel if you like, without penalty.
