You can save even more if you wait for Black Friday. Let’s compare current deal with Black Friday price predictions.

Amazon has just started a limited-time deal on Amazon Fire tablets. All models are on sale, including the kids editions, and you can save up to 25%.

Some news sites got excited, with headlines like “Black Friday started early.” Calm down. These deals are good, but not as good as what you get during Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018.

At first, when you read that the newly-released Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet has the price cut from $79.99 to $59.99, you may think that this is everything Amazon can offer this year. It’s not true. In the past, Amazon cut prices of fresh new devices by 30% or even 40%.

Therefore, instead of adding the Fire HD 8 to a cart in a hurry, give yourself a chance to buy Amazon devices – no matter whether it’s a Kindle, Fire, or Echo – more pragmatically.

First of all, think which device you really want and in which variant. Then make a wishlist and set up the most convenient way to track prices.

If you are not forced to buy a Fire tablet right now, wait until November 23, and you will see even lower prices.

Below, you can find a comparison of prices between the current Amazon Fire promotion and price predictions for this year’s Turkey 5. The predictions are based on Black Friday 2018 Kindle and Fire price watch which compares deals from a few earlier Black Friday and Prime Day events.
