Amazon's Black Friday sale starts Friday, Nov. 17 and I'm sharing 25+ deals I recommend from Amazon Alexa-enabled devices to 4K TVs. Amazon typically offers solid black Friday deals on laptops, gaming notebooks, tablets, phones, wearables, video games, and more. So if you want to get a running start on your holiday gift shopping for loved ones, including yourself, there will be plenty of early deals up for grabs.

During the sale, Amazon will offer the lowest prices of the year on the most wished-for products from brands and of course Amazon itself. For Black Friday, Amazon is slashing up to 70% off select branded Alexa devices and value packs like Echo Pop with free smart bulb bundles, Ring Video Doorbell with Echo Show 5 (3rd Gen) bundles, eero Pro 6E mesh Wi-Fi Systems, and Luna Gaming Controllers. 

Plus, save up to 50% on Amazon's newest devices including Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire HD 10 Kids and Kids Pro tablets, as well as the Echo Pop Kids Marvel's Avengers.

And what's more, the first ever Black Friday NFL game is streaming on Prime Video, Nov. 24, viewers can shop Amazon Black Friday deals from brands like TCL during the game — the official partner of the NFL. 

Although we expect to see the best Black Friday deals of the season on the actual day, as you see, early discounts are afoot at Amazon. This year, Amazon is extending its Black Friday sale with early holiday deals starting Nov. 17 through Black Friday, Nov. 24. The savings will continue with Cyber Monday weekend deals starting on Nov. 25 and roll right into Cyber Monday, Nov. 27. 

From Amazon devices to TVs, here are 25 early Black Friday deals I recommend.
