Amazon Echo devices, Fire HD Tablets, and Fire TV Sticks are on sale
Amazon is offering huge deals on almost all of their devices until May 13. Getting a sale on all of these at the same time almost never happens — unless it’s Black Friday or Amazon Prime Day. (Trust us, this is what we do.)
Amazon is known to swoop in and help out the slackers right before a big gift holiday though, and Mother’s Day just happens to fall on May 13 this year. (Would you look at that?)
If you were just going to opt for a generic card, here’s an idea: Don’t. Give her the gift of thousands of books at her fingertips, Alexa voice commands, or hands-free soap opera binging instead.
Three Fire Tablets, four Echo devices, two Kindles, and two streaming sticks are all on sale, so regardless of the type of tech your mom needs in her life, you’re basically guaranteed to save. And just so you’re not temped to steal your gift from her after a week, we’d suggest you snag one for yourself while the deals are still on. These prices are just too good.
The sale ends on May 13 at 9 pm EST, so keep an eye on the shipping time — and if you’re not yet an Amazon Prime member and need that ace two-day shipping, you can sign up here.
Now, onto those #deals:
The Amazon Fire 7 Tablet is Amazon’s thinnest, lightest tablet, and sports a sharp 1024 x 600 IPS display, plus an eight hour battery. Taking Alexa everywhere has never been more convenient. Regularly $49.99, you can get it for $10 off at $39.99.
The Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet is possibly Amazon’s best mix of quality and size, with a 1280 x 800 HD display and 12 hours of battery life packed into convenient 8-inch tablet. Watch Netflix, ask Alexa to call your mom (or show her how to call you), and listen to a playlist with the Dolby Atmos speakers. Regularly $79.99, you can get it for $20 off at $59.99.
The Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet is a serious steal and a serious powerhouse. Enjoy a 1080 full HD display (that’s smart TV level), hands-free Alexa, Dolby Atmos speakers, and up to 10 hours of battery life. Regularly $149.99, you can get it for $30 off at $119.99.
Make life easier with the Amazon Echo Dot. Using Alexa voice commands, this smart little speaker can act as an intercom between rooms, control smart home devices, play music, answer questions, and more. Regularly $49.99 each, you can save $20 when you add two to your cart and get a pair for $59.99.
The classic Amazon Echo is also up for grabs, now with updated Dolby speakers and seven noise-cancelling microphones for Alexa to hear you from all directions. Ask Alexa to play your favorite show, request an Uber, or order pizza. Regularly $99.99, you can get it for $15 off at $84.99.
For video options, an upgrade to the Amazon Echo Spot is a good move. Video chat with friends and family, monitor home security cameras, or watch flash news briefings — just ask Alexa to put it on the screen. Regularly, $129.99, you can get it for $20 off at $109.99.
The Amazon Echo Show is the fanciest of the bunch, featuring dual speakers and a huge 7-inch screen. Watch Amazon Video content, drop in on a family member, or ask Alexa to look up song lyrics. Regularly $229.99, you can get it for $70 off at $159.99.
The original Kindle is a classic for book addicts, with built-in Audible and access to the world’s largest audiobook library. The 6-inch anti-glare touch screen display looks identical to reading a physical book (but is better, because you’ll have unlimited access to tons of titles in one light e-reader). It can also last weeks on one charge. Regularly $79.99, you can get it for $20 off at $59.99.
The Kindle Paperwhite is also on sale and the most popular e-reader of the Kindle family. Enjoy a higher resolution display than the original (300 ppi) and an adjustable backlight for different lighting situations, along with the same sweet access to over one million titles. Regularly $119.99, you can get it for $20 off at $99.99.
Step up your TV game with an Amazon Fire TV Stick and Alexa Voice Remote. Get access to tens of thousands of channels, apps, movies, and episodes of live TV — because there’s nothing better than flopping on the couch and not having to dig for the remote. Regularly $39.99, you can get it for $10 off at $29.99. (Add an Echo Dot to the purchase and get the pair for $64.98, a savings of $25.)
The Amazon Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD Streamer can give you the closest thing to a UHD smart TV (without dropping the money) including full UHD quality, Dolby Atmos audio, and 40% more power than the Fire TV Stick. Complete with an Alexa Voice Remote. Regularly $69.99, you can get it for $20 off at $49.99.
