Alexa turns nine: Save with Amazon device deals

Alexa turns nine: Save with Amazon device deals

Amazon is celebrating nine years of Amazon Alexa. To ring in the occasion, tons of Amazon devices are on sale for seriously competitive prices.

It’s been nearly a decade since Amazon’s Alexa came into our lives, streamlining our homes with hands-free voice command technology. To celebrate the occasion, the retailer has launched a sale on Amazon devices that work with Alexa, from Fire TVs to tablets, Kindles, and Echo devices. The sale launched today, Nov. 3, and will run until Alexa’s official birthday on Nov. 6.

Some of these deals match the prices we saw last month over Prime Day (we’ve marked these with a 💰), while others have dropped to new all-time lows (we’ve marked these with a 🔥). With Black Friday around the corner, we’ll likely see some of these deals (or very similar ones) pop back up after this sale is over. However, since many of these gadgets are at their record-low price, we recommend scooping up the ones you want sooner rather than later just to be safe.

Happy birthday, Alexa!

Best Bundle deal

Why we love it

As if our favorite Amazon Devices going on sale wasn’t cause for celebration enough, the sale also includes hard-to-top bundles, such as this one that includes an Amazon Fire TV stick and remote, plus a Blink video doorbell. Normally, this bundle retails for $119.98: it’s a fantastic deal for anyone who wants to integrate more smart-home technology into their lives without investing in a ton of new gear. With the Fire TV stick, you can access new worlds of streaming without having to invest in a new TV or a bunch of streaming subscriptions. Meanwhile, the Blink video doorbell increases your home’s security, and all you need is your smartphone to get it up and running.

Best Amazon Fire Tablet deal

Why we love it

At $64.99, the Amazon Fire Max 11 tablet is at back down to its lowest price on record, which we saw last month for Prime Day. With an 11-inch display screen, an octa-core processor, 64GB of storage, and a 14-hour battery life, this is Amazon’s most formidable tablet yet, proving itself a worthy alternative to the iPad. If you already use Alexa-controlled devices across your home, then this tablet is an even greater resource: it can connect with all of your Amazon smart home devices, acting as an efficient control hub that you can easily manipulate through voice commands. The cherry on top of the savings is that you also get three free months of Microsoft 365 Personal when you buy. (Just be sure to cancel before the trial is over if you don’t want to get charged!)

Best Amazon Echo deal

Why we love it

The Echo Show 5 (3rd Gen) has some new features, including totally revamped sound. It brings two times the bass, plus has enhanced vocal clarity. Streaming music from your Amazon devices has never sounded so good.

At just $39.99, this price brings us right back to Prime Day.

Best Fire TV Deal

Why we love it

At a record-low price of $199.99, this INSIGNIA 50-inch Fire TV has beat even its Prime Day price. While the savings certainly draw us to this deal, it’s not the only reason we love this TV. With 4K HD, you can stream your favorite shows and movies with enhanced clarity and resolution, granting you an even more immersive experience. Plus, this TV’s sound is just as superb as its visuals. Thanks to a built-in audio enhancement suite, audio feels ultra-realistic and expands your room’s sense of space. Being a Fire TV, you can also take advantage of voice control and thousands of streaming apps and channels.

Best Kindle deal

Why we love it

Kindle Scribes aren’t cheap: new models are listed on Amazon for upwards of $360. If you’re in the market, we recommend shopping for Certified Refurbished: especially as today’s sale takes the price to under $250. The Kindle Scribe does it all: whether you want to download and read your favorite books, draw and sketch, or journal and take notes, this digital notebook is your hub for your creative endeavors. There have also been some pretty cool updates made, including more brush types, the ability to create folders and subfolders, and an import function that lets you send documents straight from Microsoft Word.

Best home security deal

Why we love it

With Blink Mini, you not only get to glimpse what’s going on in your home when you’re not there, but it also lets you talk back and forth, just like you’re there.
