1. $30 Off Amazon Echo
The Amazon Echo is an always-on, voice-controlled hub. It’s also a rich-sounding Bluetooth speaker. When you “wake” the device by saying the word “Alexa,” you can request info on the weather or news, add things to your to-do list, or play music. If you’ve been wanting to snag this cool gadget, today is a good time to do so. This speaker is $30 off the list price, which is one of the best deals we’ve seen on the Echo so far this year. The Echo was on sale for $30 off earlier this month, but the discount didn’t last long. Earlier this year, Prime members were able to get the Echo for $99, but only for a limited time. We’re not likely to see the price on the Echo drop that low again in 2015, so now is the right time to pounce on this deal. This price will only last for a few days before going back up.

Price: $149.99 (16 percent off MSRP)
2. 90 Percent Off Magazine Subscriptions
Amazon is offering 90 percent off select magazine subscriptions, with some magazines on sale for $5. Some magazines included in the sale are InStyle, SELF, and Cooking Light. Some magazine deals include only physical copies of the magazine, while other deals include both physical and digital copies.
3. Savings on the Whole Fire TV Lineup
Amazon is offering savings across the whole Fire TV lineup, including the original Fire TV and the cheaper Fire TV Stick. The Fire TV Stick is $15 off the usual price of $39.99. If you want the Stick with the handy Voice Remote for easier browsing, you can also get $15 off that bundle, which normally goes for $49.99. The more expensive Fire TV set top box, which normally retails for $99, is now $25 off. The Fire TV now offers 4K Ultra HD for true-to-life picture quality.
4. Fire Tablet for $34.99
Amazon’s Fire tablet is already a great deal at $49.99, but the company will drop the price down even further for Thanksgiving. You can now get the tablet for $34.99 while supplies last. It’s only a savings of $15, but that’s still pretty substantial for a tablet that was inexpensive to begin with.
5. Almost 40 Percent Off Kindle
This deal’s actually been going on for a while, but you might have missed it if you weren’t paying close attention. Amazon dropped the price of the Kindle e-reader on November 22. The new price is $49.99, a savings of almost 40 percent off the normal price. Supplies are likely to run low at some point, so you may need to act fast. We’re not sure if Amazon will honor rain checks on this deal if they run out of stock.
Price: $49.99 (38 percent off MSRP)
