Cyber Monday 2016 is here, and while Black Friday is normally geared toward those who would rather go to brick-and-mortar stores and do their shopping there, this retail holiday is centered on online buyers. As The Inquisitr reported yesterday, online sales figures on Black Friday 2016 had set new records, and with that being said, this year’s Monday-after online shopping figures just might set similar records once the numbers have been tallied and counted. And given its status as one of the biggest names in online retail, let’s look at some of the best Amazon deals for Cyber Monday 2016.
Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals include discounts on the company’s popular smart home device, the Amazon Echo. Pricing on the Echo is usually $179.99, but you can now get it on the company’s website for just $139.99. The smaller Echo Dot, which allows you to enjoy the Alexa experience for much less, is priced at $39.99, or $10 off the regular list price of $49.99. And if you’re looking for the company’s Alexa-powered Bluetooth speaker, the Amazon Tap, that device sells for $89.99, or $40 off the $129.99 list price.
You can also save some money on other Amazon hardware devices, including its Fire tablets; the Fire HD 8, for instance, is selling for 33 percent off, with the device now priced at $59.99 instead of the usual $89.99.
While not among the first Amazon-branded devices on sale this Cyber Monday 2016, the company has some other deals on its own hardware, according to Forbes. The Fire Kids Edition is now selling for $10 less than it did during last year’s Cyber Monday and can now be purchased for $74.99, or $25 off. The Kindle Voyage e-reader, on the other hand, sells for $169.99, or $30 off the regular price.
Buyers looking for video game consoles will be glad to know that the Xbox One S 500GB Battlefield 1 bundle is selling at a very tempting price on Cyber Monday 2016. You’ll have to add the product to your cart to see the price for yourself, and it appears that the console is now selling at $212.49.
The Amazon website also has some “flash deals” for Cyber Monday, meaning those that are only live for a short period of time before expiring, with the offers also being good while supplies last. Right now, the website shows a 41 percent discount off the HP Spectre X2 laptop configuration with Intel Core M5 processor, 4GB RAM, 128GB solid-state drive, and 12-inch touchscreen, with Windows 10 out of the box. As of this writing, the laptop is priced at $499.99 with free shipping, or 41 percent/$350 off the regular price tag of $849.99.
The above-mentioned HP laptop is showing as 10 percent claimed (meaning lots of supplies still remaining), with over four hours remaining before the deal expires, so you may want to act quick if you’re looking to take advantage of one of the best Amazon Cyber Monday deals on laptops thus far.
Digital cameras and television sets are always popular consumer electronics items around Thanksgiving week, and just like they usually are, they’re included among Amazon’s top deals for Cyber Monday 2016. For example, the Sony Alpha a5000 mirrorless digital camera with 16-50mm OSS lens and 20.1-megapixel sensor can be yours for $348 (reg. price $448, 22 percent off), making it one of the more affordable, yet high-quality digital shooters you can get.
Moving on to television sets, you can get some nice discounts on several branded 4K Ultra HDTVs, including an LG flat-screened 55-inch model that’s selling for $1,797. As of this writing, there is only one unit left in stock, but if you’re quick enough to purchase it, that’s going to give you savings of more than 50 percent off the list price of $3,999.99. Samsung’s 65-inch 4K Ultra HDTV costs $1,597.99, or 22 percent off the regular price of $1,899.99, while you can get a Sony 55-incher for $898 instead of the usual $1,198.
The above offers represent a random sampling of some of Amazon’s best Cyber Monday 2016 deals on TV sets, but the retailer has several other options when it comes to 2016 model-year 4K HDTVs.
