If you’ve been in the market for a new Kindle tablet or your smart-home setup needs another smart speaker or two, now’s a good time to buy. Amazon is discounting up to 33 percent off Fire TV devices, up to 38 percent off Ring doorbells, up to 50 percent off Fire tablets, and up to 50 percent off Echo devices such as smart speakers and smart displays.

Amazon’s fourth-generation Echo smart speaker can be the gateway to a smart home decked out in programmable lights and alarms and gives you the ability to control it all with your voice. “The smart speaker is the brain of your entire smart-home operation,” former Strategist Jordan Bowman writes. “It plays music and gives you news and weather updates, but, most important, you can use it to control your other smart-home appliances. All you have to do is be within earshot of your speaker and say, ‘Alexa, turn on the lights.’”

This is an excellent opportunity to get a new smart speaker for yourself or as a gift for a loved one this holiday season, but act soon, as this deal is only good through November 7.
