Black Friday is finally upon us, with the mammoth sale being the best time of the year to save on everything from TVs, laptops, gaming and tech to mattresses, home appliances, beauty, fashion, toys and more. Despite kicking off its sale a week ago, Amazon has left its best deals for this weekend – and they do not disappoint.

The online giant’s event will see you save on several ever-popular items, including Nintendo Switch consoles, air fryers and Apple gadgets. Officially landing today (Friday 25 November), the sale runs through to Cyber Monday on 28 November. 

As well as big-ticket products from Shark, Microsoft and Ninja, you can also enjoy hefty discounts on Amazon’s own-brand tech, such as Kindles, Echo dot smart speakers, Fire stick devices and Ring doorbells.

There’s no denying Amazon is one of the best places to shop during the Black Friday bonanza. Offering some great discounts just in time for Christmas shopping, but with so many deals up for grabs, it can be tricky to know where to start.

Thankfully, we here at IndyBest have put together this guide with everything you need to know about the sale, including a round-up of all the best Black Friday deals you can snap up right now. Happy shopping!

Best Amazon Black Friday device deals

Amazon Echo dot 5th generation speaker: Was £54.99, now £26.99,

The brand’s latest Echo dot speaker has 51 per cent slashed off its price for Black Friday – a great deal for those looking to connect their home. For this model, the audio architecture has been redesigned, and Amazon claims it delivers up to double the base of the gen 4. It also features new sensors, including a room-temperature sensor, so Alexa can take action when the room gets too hot or too cold.

Ring video doorbell 3: Was £159.99, now £109.99,

You can secure your home for less, thanks to Amazon’s Black Friday sale, which includes an impressive range of discounts on Ring doorbells. A very similar model to this one took the top spot in our review of the best video doorbells – in which our writer praised the “quality of the 1,080px HD video, and the clever two-way talk”. The brand claims it’s easy to set up and the built-in motion detection means you’ll receive instant notification if anyone rings the doorbell.

Kindle paperwhite: Was £129.99, now £94.99,

Calling all bookworms, you’re going to love that Amazon has slashed the price of the Kindle paperwhite by nearly 30 per cent. This model took the top spot in our review of the best eReaders with The Independent’s tech critic, David Phelan, noting it is “sensational, with brilliant features, performance, design and price in one”. He added: “Unlike other Kindles, this one uses a newer version of E Ink system, which offers a faster page turn and smoother transitions.”

Amazon Fire HD 8 kids tablet, 12th gen: Was £149.99, now £81.99,

Suitable for kids aged three to seven, save £68 on this brand-new tablet deal. Launched in 2022, you can choose between blue, red and purple devices, while a year of Amazon Kids+ and a case with a built-in stand are included too. There’s an 8in display screen and it comes complete with 32GB, whether they want to listen to music, play games or watch videos. Meanwhile, a two-year guarantee offers peace of mind, and there’s a parental dashboard for filtering content according to suitability.

We named a similar 10in Amazon Fire kids tablet best overall in our best kids’ tablets round-up, where our reviewer praised it for being a “fantastic option for younger kids”, before adding the parental controls are “very tight and easy to use.”

Amazon Echo show 8, 2nd gen: Was £119.99, now £69.99,

Our tech writer Alex Lee put Amazon’s Echo show 8 through its paces. In his review, he noted that “you get a heck of a lot of bang for your buck” with this device. It has an “ambient sensing display, a home-monitoring feature, an upgraded processor and a better 13-megapixel camera, which has less-intrusive panning and zooming tracking features than the Echo show 10”. He even went as far as to say it should be a go-to if you’re “looking for an Amazon smart display”.

Now is the perfect time to snap it up with a 47 per cent discount.

Buy now

Amazon Fire 7 tablet: Was £59.99, now £31.99,

The 7in display on this tablet makes it easier to pack than its big brother, the Fire HD 10, yet it is still large enough to watch your favourite Netflix shows quite comfortably. A charge gives you up to 10 hours of screen time, depending on the apps you use, and its quad-core processor is up to 30 per cent quicker than previous models. The tablet has dropped to almost half its regular price for Black Friday, so if you’re looking for a budget-friendly upgrade, here’s your chance.

Calling all fans of virtual reality, this is a deal you need to see. Taking the top spot in our review of the best VR headsets, our tech writer Steve Hogarty praised it for being a “genuine breakthrough for the technology”. He added: “Not only does it look smart, with no protruding cables or messy wiring to worry about, it’s straightforward enough to set up that even the most tech-averse users will be able to experience VR within minutes of opening the box.” Thanks to Amazon’s Black Friday sale, you can get this bundled with Resident Evil 4 and save an impressive £50.

Sonos one: Was £199, now £159,

Taking the top spot in our review of the best Sonos speakers, The Independent’s technology editor Andrew Griffin noted that “it’s the favourite for a reason”. It “offers an introduction to the best of Sonos: very smart, very good sound for its size and price, and the ability to link up not just with the world of music streaming but also with the rest of the speakers in your house”, Griffin noted. “It’s the best place to start, and likely to be the best addition to any existing system.” This rare discount reduces it to less than £160.

Taking the top spot in our round-up of the best wireless headphones, you can save 20 per cent right now on Sony’s noise-cancelling headphones. “The WH-1000XM5 are the latest and greatest headphones from Sony, and frankly, they blow the previous WH-1000XM4 (our previous best buy) out of the water in terms of sound quality, with some neat additions and refinements to boot,” our tester said. Praised for their active noise cancellation, “absolutely divine” sound and “support for Alexa voice activation”, our tester concluded it “never misses a beat.”

This lightweight and elegantly built laptop is a delight to work on thanks to its stylish design, premium finish and sharp display. In our round-up of the best laptops of 2022, our tester described the device as being “as near-to-perfect a Windows experience as you can find”.

PureMate 2.2l portable dehumidifier: Was £119.99, now £84.99,

Searching for a dehumidifier? You can save 33 per cent on this PureMate portable dehumidifier right now, thanks to Amazon. Weighing just 3kg, it’s easy to move from room to room, or keep in smaller homes. Described as the “best dehumidifier with a timer” in our round-up of the best machines, our tester rated it for being “sleek and uber portable.” They also added: “It can capture up to 600ml of water per day, and is ideal for smaller spaces, such as bedrooms or kitchens. It was also very quiet, so we barely heard it while it was on, which is partly down to the thermoelectric cooling fan, which doesn’t need a compressor to operate.”
