Amazon is an e-tailer that has changed the way we purchase things, offering a different dimension when it comes to shopping. No longer do we need to walk through aisle after aisle searching for a particularly good deal, and best of all is, there are no long checkout lines to fight with, and neither do you have to waste time searching for a parking lot -- everything you purchase gets delivered to your doorstep and you know exactly when that would happen as it is all mentioned. Well, now that Black Friday will soon be upon us, how about checking out the different kinds of deals that are available over at Amazon? We are pretty sure that there will be some other cool offerings that will pop up in time to come, but for the moment, the following will have to suffice.
Being the top online retailer around the globe, the economy of scale offered by Amazon would be unparalleled, which gives them the right leverage in offering fantastic Black Friday deals that would be difficult to refuse, let alone look away. A sneak peek of what is to come has already appeared, and from today onward, you are able to take advantage of the following sales.
If you have been holding off for a long time to pick up the Amazon Echo, then now is your chance to jump at it. Amazon will slash $40 off its sticker price tag, which would then bring the price down to a more affordable $139.99 a pop. Just in case you have been living under a rock for the past couple of years, the Amazon Echo is a voice controlled smart speaker that is connected to the cloud -- and offers 360-degree sound, accompanied by a septet of integrated microphones. While the main focus is music playback, you are still able to take advantage of the Amazon Echo when it jives with the Alexa service, allowing you to glean important information as well as perform tasks on your behalf -- including ordering your dinner online, or even switching the lights off.
The second generation $39.99 Echo Dot would be worth checking out with a $10 discount, which translates to a savings of 20%. Touted by many to be the smaller version of the Amazon Echo, it pretty much lives up to such a reputation -- except that it has a really diminutive form factor. You will be able to connect it to your current audio set up over a Bluetooth connection or jack, enabling it to play nice with Alexa as well.
The Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote will also obtain a $10 discount, bringing the price down to $29.99. With the Amazon Fire TV plugged into any compatible HDTV, you can then hook up to a range of streaming services in the vein of Netflix, Pandora, and Hulu. With the included remote control, you are able to control your access using voice commands over Alexa.
Of course, tablet hunters can save $30 on the $59.99 Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet, where you would end up with a 1,280 x 800 pixels display, 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded to double that amount, a quad-core 1.3GHz processor, a 2MP camera at the back with a VGA selfie shooter, and a 12-hour battery life. As for the $33.33 Amazon Fire tablet, it does not get any cheaper (or basic) than that. The Amazon Fire tablet will feature a 7-inch display, a choice of either 8GB or 16GB of internal memory, a quad-core 1.3GHz processor, a 7-hour battery life and a 1,024 x 600 IPS display.
Certainly keeping up with the times will be cool with any of these additions via Amazon, so why not take full advantage of them this Black Friday?
