Amazon switched its focus from Black Friday to the Cyber Monday Countdown. Other merchants are still talking Black Friday, but in Amazon’s universe, we’re officially in the .
Most of Amazon’s Black Friday deals carried over to the Cyber Monday countdown, and it appears they’ll continue as long as inventories hold out. We’ve been surprised at how many Amazon device deals, especially the depth of the deals on bundles as well as individual devices. Almost all Amazon device deals have stuck with the same prices for three days now. Some are gone, such as the 55-inch Insignia and Toshiba Fire TVs. There are plenty of new deals in most product categories. If you found absolutely everything on your top priority list on Black Friday, hopefully, you have funds left to have fun shopping the Cyber Monday deals. Amazon always reserves excellent deals for Cyber Monday.
This year Amazon is heavily promoting theand the , with awesome prices, but do not hold off on buying popular items like the Dot and Show 5 while you search for other deals. You can’t count on hot items remaining in stock forever, however, even with Amazon’s incredibly deep inventories.
Don’t blow your Cyber Monday funds on anyone’s urgency-based sales — it’s easy to do in the heat of the moment. Retailers use limited-time and limited-quantity deals to influence shoppers to take prompt action unless an item is on your “must-have” list — in which case, Score! Otherwise, don’t deplete your budget too early and miss out on a must-have item later on. End-of-the-sale close-out deals can be especially sweet when you purposefully saved money for them.
Best Amazon Cyber Monday deals
You don’t have to wait for Cyber Monday to find head-shaking deals on Amazon. We’ve already noted and posted heavily-discounted Amazon deals for smart home devices, vacuums, and small appliances. Amazon hopes you spend money now and on Cyber Monday, so the company will continue to add tempting new deals.
What to expect from Amazon on Cyber Monday
When Cyber Monday officially arrives, remember to pace yourself. Amazon won’t introduce all of its best deals at the beginning of the Cyber Monday. Amazon will feature various types of deals during the day, including lightning deals, short-term, limited-quantity sales, and exclusive bundles. You might be tempted to lean on your refresh button all day, but let us do that — because we will. We’ll update this page all day with the very best deals in the categories we monitor.
Amazon will continue with hefty discounts on its owned-brand products such as Fire TV, Ring, and Blink. The excellent deals are still running on most Amazon Echo smart home devices such as the Echo and Echo Dot, Echo Shows, Fire TVs, Fire Tablets, and their Kindle e-readers. We’ve already seen tons of deals on third-party Alexa-compatible devices, including video doorbells, smart security cameras, speakers, lights, robot vacuums, and other appliances.
Because Amazon organizes deals by categories, you should find it very easy to shop for deals on computers and accessories, home, electronics, kitchen, cell phones and accessories, video games, cameras and photography, office products and supplies, and major appliances.
How do these deals compare to last year?
By Cyber Monday 2018, Amazon had already sold out on some smart speakers and Echo smart displays, but there were plenty of excellent deals left. One exciting pattern we observed last Cyber Monday and during this year’s Prime Day was that Amazon offered attractive discounts on some of its most recently announced products. For example, during Prime Day 2019, Amazon reduced the price of the then-new Echo Show 5 from its $90 list price to just $60. Now the Show 5 is on sale for $50.
You can also expect Amazon to offer significant savings on services like Audible audiobooks and possibly discounts on Amazon Prime for new members, too.
