Here's our pick of the best deals in tech from across Amazon, but if you're specifically looking for deals on Amazon devices - like the Echo, Fire, or Kindle range - then read on to find out which devices the company has discounted.
How to get the best Amazon deals this Cyber Monday
Amazon is one of the few retailers that announced its Black Friday plans in advance. It kicked off its massive sale event on Friday 17 November, which will run until midnight tonight, Monday 27 November.
Particular highlights are the products made by Amazon itself, such as Amazon Echo, Kindle and Fire devices. The Echo 2, Echo Plus, and Echo Dot smart speakers are all deeply discounted, ￡20 off the Echo 2, ￡30 off the Echo Plus, and the Dot reduced to ￡34.99.
Amazon has also discounted its Fire tablets. Best of the bunch is the Fire 7, down to just ￡30, but the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 have also both been reduced to their lowest prices ever. There are also deals on the Kids Editions of the Fire 7 and Fire HD 8 tablets, with ￡30 off the 7 and ￡40 off the HD 8.
Kindle users are in luck too - the Paperwhite e-reader is now just ￡79.99, a drop of ￡30 on the RRP. Even the Fire TV Stick is down from ￡40 to ￡25, though so far there's no offer on the more expensive 4K Fire TV.
Even Amazon's services are seeing a price slash - the company has launched a promotion for three months of Amazon Music Unlimited - its Spotify rival - for just ￡0.99.
Amazon is offering new Deals of the Day every day. They will be hugely discounted products that Amazon has a significant amount of stock for, but you’ll still want to grab them quickly as they’re bound to fly off the shelves.
Even more tricky to get hold of are Lightning Deals. There are thousands of them every day, and they last for a very limited time with very limited stock.
We’d recommend signing up for Amazon Prime now if you haven’t done so already. You can get a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime, or sign up for a year for ￡79. Click here to go to Amazon's sign up page.
All Prime members, even those on the free trial, get access to Amazon’s Lightning Deals 30 minutes early. For the best deals, that could be the difference between bagging a bargain and missing out completely. Plus, with Prime you’ll also get free next day delivery and access to additional features such as Amazon Prime Video.
