Amazon Black Friday Sale Analysis

Amazon is famous for its incredible online Black Friday deals. Here's a look at how this year's Amazon Black Friday deals measure up.

One of the most-watched categories for Amazon is its smart-home products. And the deals this year are all superior to last year's. The Echo Dot is $5 less expensive this year, and Amazon is matching its lowest-ever Prime Day pricing on the regular Echo (2nd generation): $69.

The major newcomer this year is the Fire TV Cube, which is $60 off.

Pricing remains the same year over year on the Fire tablets (8 and 10), at $49.99 and $99.99, respectively. Note, however, that this year's HD 8 deal is on the newest model, with Alexa.

Another improvement year over year: The ability to add a smart plug (which turns "dumb" appliances smart) for just $5 when you purchase any Echo device. These normally cost $24.99.

As it did last year, Amazon is pushing its in-house clothing and home-goods brands by offering significant discounts, a move we saw it make this most recent Prime Day.
