The Best Amazon Black Friday Deals 2019
Black Friday 5 years ago meant absolutely nothing to Canadians. Now with the world of online shopping bigger than ever, Canada has definitely jumped on the Black Friday Band Wagon. I have read that it even surpasses Boxing Day as being the most busy day for most retailers!
Amazon is no exception: Black Friday for Amazon Canada is one of the two best deals in the year (the other one being Amazon Prime Day). So, like many other budget conscious people, I tend to do much of my Christmas Shopping on Black Friday, and Amazon is definitely the place I start!
The best deals Amazon offers are usually their house brand electronics and smart devices, and I can attest that the quality is just as a good as other brands.
Here are a few products that I recommend that will be an awesome deal on Amazon’s Black Friday 2019 sale:
Equivalent to the “Google Mini”, the Echo Dot has an “Early access” deal where it is currently listed as $29.99, $40 off the regular price! I can attest to the greatness of this smart speaker as I bought 3 last year – one for my bedroom, and two as gifts. I plan to buy at least one more for our kitchen this year. $29 is the lowest price I have seen in the last couple years
Echo Show 5 two pack is $70 off as of today– priced at $129.98. This brand new model is a video/picture screen that would be a welcome addition to a smart home. Amazon describes the device –“Echo Show 8 connects to Alexa to give you rich stereo sound with vivid visuals on an 8” HD screen. See on-screen lyrics with Amazon Music. Set alarms and timers. Display your favourite photos. Check weather and traffic as you head out. Catch up on news highlights and movie trailers. “
Imagine how easy it would be to just ask Alexa to turn on your Christmas tree lights. This smart plug works in connection with the Echo smart speakers. The US site shows that you can purchase one as an add-on to an Echo device for $4.99 on Black Friday. Therefore, it can be assumed that this smart plug will have a decent discount from its’ $34.99 regular price!
Update: coupon for $15 smart plug is now available! Code: Smart15
As an Amazon smart speaker enthusiast, naturally I invest in Amazon Music Unlimited. Amazon Prime offers a free subscription to Amazon Music, and they have a very decent array of music to choose from. Nevertheless, if you are a music junkie like me, I find that it is worth it to have Amazon Music Unlimited as it allows you to open up the selection, and I haven’t yet come across a song that hasn’t been available.
Black Friday deals make trying out this music service a must. New Amazon Music Unlimited customers can get the best deal in Amazon Music’s history – four months of the premium-streaming tier for just 99 cents on November 29th (I pay $7.99 a month!)
TOYS AND CHILDREN GIFTS
