In less than two weeks,will be here, and with it some of the best deals of the year. But you don't even have to wait that long. Amazon's Happy HoliDeals page is a cornucopia of Amazon branded products with a variety of gadgets and accessories available for sale before the big day. However, you can take a minute to buy an Echo smart speaker, Fire tablet and Kindle e-reader. The online shopping giant released its full slate of Amazon Black Friday unit deals, which competes with what we saw on Prime Day. You might be surprised to learn that you can even get a great deal on Amazon Echo Show 8 (not-even-quite-released-yet), as well as smart home equipment like Chamberlain MyQ Smart Garage Hub or Apple Watch Series 3. And with a 23andMe kit halfway through, there's never been a better time to let science tell you about your health and ancestors.
If you are planning to buy an Amazon device from Happy HoliDeals deals, you should sign up for TopCashback first ̵
Here is a list of our favorite tools available for sale at Amazon right now, followed by the Amazon unit offerings starting from and with November 22nd.
Amazon Black Friday Deals Available Now
As expected, some of the best early discounts on Amazon devices (though some of the articles below will be even cheaper in a few weeks, as noted above). But I found some notable non-Amazon deals too, so check them out too.
It hasn't even been released yet, but Amazon just released its first discount on Echo Show 8. It's basically a larger version of the superpopular Echo Show 5 (which is currently on sale for $ 80, FYI), and therefore better adapted to places like the kitchen, where the 8-inch screen makes it easier to see cooking videos and the like.

Cheapskate proved cautious when forecasting that Apple Watch Series 3 would hit another low time during Black Friday sales: It dropped to $ 170 for the entry level silver with white sports band model. Space gray and black models are still at the previous low price of $ 190.

Actually, this app-driven garage door controls originally sold for $ 130, so in a way you save $ 100. It has steadily fallen in price, but it's the lowest I've seen it. It is compatible with most garage doors, and its usefulness cannot be overestimated. Probably the best $ 30 you can spend on your house right now.

Do you have some saliva to save? Send a little to 23andMe and get back over 125 DNA-based reports on your health, wellness, provenance and the like. This is the lowest price we have seen on this kit, which normally runs $ 199.

Adding a sound field to your TV and movie watching experience will improve what few other accessories can. Stuck trying to decide which one? Here's a great alternative to a particularly good price: For a limited time, while supplies last, Amazon has the Polk Command Bar for $ 199. It saves you $ 100. There are cheaper audio bars out there, but this one has two great benefits: a wireless subwoofer and built-in Alexa smarts.

Currently 42% off the list price, this is the best price we have seen on this 65 inch UHD TV. It includes both Alexa and Google Assistant for voice control and smart assistance, and Airplay 2 lets you send from any Mac or iOS device to the big screen. LG also packs in a quad-core processor that supports HDR color and Dolby Atmos 2.0 with 20W integrated speakers.
Vizio's 2019 P-Series Quantum TV cost $ 1,400 when it debuted earlier this year. Amazon's current store saves $ 500 off Amazon's regular price, giving this TV $ 900. That is even lower than the September 998 sales price. You get 4K HDR, a nice 65-inch screen and smart for Apple HomeKit, AirPlay and Alexa and Google voice commands. We haven't reviewed this model yet, but CNET's David Katzmaier loved its predecessor in 2018. Need an even bigger screen? There is also an option to purchase the 75-inch model for $ 1,499, a $ 800 discount.

AirPods Pro was released in early November for a cheaper price. Usually priced at $ 250, the small discount for noise-canceling earphones is great for those who need to upgrade their previous AirPods or those who want to dive into a truly wireless audio experience. And while they are currently arranged back, it seems that it is still possible to get them in time for the current holidays.

Sure, there is a snow avalanche of competition out there, with more noise-canceling headphones than you can silently shake a stick at. But Bose always seems to lead the package with excellent comfort, noise reduction and overall sound quality. Right now, you can get Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones for $ 70 off Amazon. If you don't mind getting a dedicated Google Assistant button, you can still find otherwise identical, refurbished copies of the original Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones at Amazon as well. That said, the price has fluctuated a bit – we saw the QuietComfort 35 II for as low as $ 235 recently, so there may still be some surprises between now and Black Friday. But you really shouldn't pay more than $ 279 if you're in the market between now and the new year.

While Sony's WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones turned out to be priced at $ 228 very short last week, we can't be sure that it was not just a pricing error rather than a deliberate effort to underestimate Bose. Still, it is now priced at $ 278, and we would be surprised if it went slightly lower before the holidays. There is little doubt that these excellent-sounding headphones are the ones to hit right now, which is good, as they are priced roughly the same as its main competitor, the Bose QuietComfort 35 II.

Instant Pot's Duo 7-in-1 model will drop to $ 49 on Black Friday. If you are looking for some extra space for your Instant Pot culinary pursuits, this larger 8-block Lux80 model is only $ 6 more. However, this deal is only available for the day.
