It’s always advisable to wait until the holiday shopping season to buy Amazon devices. Aside from Amazon Prime Day, this is when Echo speakers, Fire tablets, Kindles and the like are almost guaranteed to hit all-time-low prices. Sure, the company has intermittent sales throughout the year — but rarely are Amazon’s own devices as cheap as they are on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Since the holiday shopping season was a bit longer this year than previous years, some of the gadgets on sale for Cyber Monday will ship a few weeks from now. But you can still lock in the sale price and get the gear you want without paying full price. Here are all of the Amazon devices on sale for Cyber Monday that are worth considering.

Kindle Paperwhite – $85

The Kindle Paperwhite is one of our favorite e-readers and now it’s cheaper than ever at $85. It normally costs $129 and this is the same price it was during Amazon Prime Day in October. We gave it a score of 95 for its lovely, high-contrast display, waterproof design and new Audible support. The higher-end Kindle Oasis is also on sale for its lowest price ever — $175.

This streaming stick only came out a few months ago and it features a faster processor, Dolby Atmos audio support and an Alexa voice remote. Both Fire TV Sticks on the other sides of the spectrum are on sale, too. The even more affordable Fire TV Stick Lite is now $18 and the Fire TV Stick 4K is on sale for $30.

The new Echo Dot is down to $29, which is 42 percent off its normal price. It looks quite different from the previous generation (which is also on sale for $19) thanks to its new spherical design. That’s one of the reasons we gave the Echo Dot a score of 89, and we also liked its improved sound quality, 3.5mm audio jack and tap-to-snooze feature. If you want the convenience of a glanceable clock, the Echo Dot with clock is also on sale for $39.

Kindle – $60

Amazon Kindle

Amazon’s classic e-reader is back to an all-time low of $60. The standard Kindle doesn’t have a few of the advanced hardware features that the Kindle Paperwhite has, but it’s still a great little reading device with an e-paper screen that’s much easier on the eyes than a regular tablet display. We gave it a score of 91 for its new front light, improved contrast display and refined design.

Echo Studio – $160

If you’re set on having an Alexa smart speaker in your home and want higher quality sound, the Studio could be a good pick for you. We gave it a score of 88 for its hi-res audio, unobtrusive design and abilities as a home theater speaker.

The Fire TV Recast is down to a record low of $130. This device is truly for cord cutters as it lets you watch and record hours of over-the-air TV if you also have a Fire TV or an Echo Show. What’s better? There are no monthly fees to worry about, either.
