Black Friday 2017: Amazon's Early Black Friday 2017 deals on Alexa devices

Echo for 70, Dot for 35, and more.

Amazon announced today that it will be kicking off its UK Black Friday 2017 deals this Friday, 17th November. This will launch ten days of deals on a range of products including electronics, video games, accessories, toys and other gifts. The company claims to have 'thousands' of deals going live over the ten-day discount period, which includes Black Friday (24th November) and Cyber Monday (27th November).


To start things off in a good way, Amazon also announced that from Wednesday, 15th November, you'll be able to pick up a few of Amazon's Alexa-enabled home devices with some great discounts. From midnight, you'll be able to grab one of the new Amazon Echo devices for £69.99, a saving of £20 on the regular price.

Also available is the Echo Dot for £15 off, bringing the cost down to £34.99 for the sale period. In addition to that, from November 17th, the Fire 7 Kids Edition and Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablets will see discounts of £30 and £40 respectively.


Amazon's Alexa-enabled devices, such as the Echo and Echo Dot, are designed to be in-home, hands-free assistants, offering a wealth of information and functions with the help of Amazon's cloud-based servers and WiFi connection. Alexa can operate smart home features such as the Philips Hue lightbulbs, play music through Spotify or Amazon Music Unlimited, set reminders and alarms for you and even schedule your days if you fancy it. If you happen to be an Amazon Prime member, you'll have access to a whole lot of other features including shopping using only your voice, which is neat.

It's worth noting that this discount is on the newest iteration of the Amazon Echo, also, as Amazon recently introduced the shorter, sleeker and more advanced V2 of its personal AI buddy.

You'll also be able to add a TP-Link Smart Plug for £9.99 (£20 off) when you buy an Echo devices. Later this week, you can even indulge in any one of Amazon's Dash buttons for £1.99, down from their regular £4.99.

From midnight on the 15th November, you'll be able to get your hands on the Echo and Echo Dot deals, while the Dash buttons and Fire tablet deals will start from November 17th.
