Amazon has revealed its expanded plans for Black Friday sales, including a long list of specific discounts and deals on Xbox bundles, TVs, electronics, Chromebooks, toys, board games, furniture, apparel, outdoor equipment -- and everything else under the sun. These details are above and beyond the-- , , and the like -- that the world's largest online retailer revealed earlier this month.

With that disclosure in place, here's what you need to know.
Fire TV recast, Ring Video Doorbell 2 and Echo Dot Kids Edition join Amazon device sale: Amazon had already signaled a long lists of devices it was deeply discounting starting as soon as Friday, Nov. 16. But in addition to the list it disclosed on Nov. 2, the following products have been added:
- The newly released Fire TV Recast DVR -- which -- gets a $50 discount, and will be on sale starting at $180.
- The Ring Video Doorbell 2 ( ) will sell for $139 ($60 off), and Amazon will throw in a free Echo Dot to boot. ( is offering the same deal.)
- The Echo Dot Kids Edition ("You know... for kids!") will start at $50 ($20 off), with a three-pack available for $100 (save $110).
- Amazon will sell an Echo (RED) edition for the same $69 discounted price as other models in its smart speaker line (normally $99), with $10 of every such sale going to the Global Fund.
There are some newly announced TV deals, but none of them are particularly exciting. My colleague David Katzmaier has pulled together the best Black Friday TV deals so far. When presented with Amazon's list (see below), he said, "None of the TV deals (Fire TV Editions, Sony X850, Samsung QLED) are any better than any of. Best Buy's Fire TV Edition prices are better, and the Sony and Samsung prices are standard fare." So there you have it.
Amazon has the same solid Xbox and Switch bundles as other retailers, with some notable Xbox additions. So far as we can tell, it looks like Amazon will have the same basic as most other major retailers. But while rival retailers are generally only advertising the $199 Minecraft bundle, Amazon seems to be offering some decent alternate game bundles -- Fallout 76, NBA 2K19, Battlefield -- for just $30 more.
Amazon is also confirming that it will have the sameas nearly all other retailers. Weirdly, Amazon's release doesn't mention the PS4, but we'd be shocked if that wasn't available there, too.
