At Amazon, it's Cyber Monday on Tuesday, and beyond.
The online retail powerhouse has eliminated many of its best discounts on Fire TV streamers, Echo speakers and the Recast DVR, but plenty of sales are still going strong. They include most of Amazon's Kids' Edition Fire tablets and Echo Dot Alexa speakers, plenty of grownup-friendly Echo Dots, as well as smart home and Fire TV bundles. And yes, there are even a couple of good Bose headphone deals still around.
And don't forget Kindle books; hundreds are on sale for up to 80 percent off.

Bose headphone deals at Amazon
These Bose wireless headphones and wireless speakers are available elsewhere, too, but we're calling them out because they're great-sounding products available at a good discount.
Bose's totally wireless SoundSport Free headphones rarely go on sale. They're $30 off at several retailers. Read the CNET review.
Although this deal on one of our favorite wireless sports headphones has disappeared from most retailers, it's still available at Amazon as of Tuesday morning. It's been going in and out of stock, however. Read the CNET review.
Amazon device deals still available: Echos, Dots and Subs
OK, now to the Amazon device deals. Here's what you can get right now, starting with the Alexa speakers.
The latest and greatest Dot smart speaker for 40 percent off? Yes, please.
Heather Gray is the only immediately available color. Charcoal and Sandstone will be in stock on Dec. 4-5. Echo Dot review.
Last year's Dot is still plenty good, especially at this price. Who cares about a fabric cover? Echo Dot review.
Although QVC briefly had this beat with a two-fer deal (two Echos for $100), a single for $70 is still pretty compelling. At most, Amazon usually cuts $20 off the price. Limited Edition Red will be released on Dec. 5, 2018. Echo review.
The Amazon Echo Sub adds an instant bass upgrade to the Echo line of smart speakers -- and you get two of the latter as well, making for a better overall music experience.
Update: As of Friday, Nov. 24 at 9 a.m. PT the bundle price has dropped by another $20 from its earlier sale price of $270 -- now $80 off -- for the charcoal, heather gray and sandstone colors. All other colors remain $270. Echo Sub review.
One Echo Sub and two Echo smart speakers make for a great combination. If you want to raise the ante, opt for a pair of Echo Plus instead. They add a temperature sensor and smart-home hub to the mix. Echo Plus review.

Fire TV, smart home and Echo Show bundles
Most of Amazon's Fire TV deals are gone now, but if you happen to want two of its sticks you can get them for what amounts to the Black Friday/Cyber Monday price of $25 each.
To get this deal you have to add 2 Fire TV Sticks to your cart at checkout. Read the CNET Fire TV Stick review.
For less than the regular price of an Echo Dot alone, you nab both the smart speaker and Amazon's Alexa-imbued streaming stick. Fire TV Stick review.
Look -- Amazon's fashion-minded Echo device hasn't exactly set the world on fire. Because do we need an Alexa-powered selfie camera? Maybe not for $200... but what about for $50? Echo Look review.
Amazon bought smart home camera startup Blink late last year -- this year, it's offering big discounts on Blink Indoor starter kits. Here are your options:

- Blink Indoor 5-Cam System: $234 ($116 off)

Amazon just released a new, second-gen Echo Show touchscreen smart speaker. Now you can buy two of them for $360, which is $100 less than you'd normally pay. Note that the price has gone up $20 after Cyber Monday; this 2-pack used to cost $340.

Want a pair of Echo Spots? Amazon will sell you two of them for $220, which is $40 less than you'd normally pay. Note that this deal used to save you $100 on the pair, so the price has gone up quite a bit after Cyber Monday.
To get this price you'll need to add both devices to your cart. Echo Spot review.
The Show Mode charging dock basically transforms your Fire Tablet into an always-on, Echo Show-style smart display.
Amazon's expired Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018 deals
Truthfully, this is far from our favorite Amazon Echo product. The Plus adds a Zigbee hub and temperature sensor -- decidedly optional items for most homeowners. The straight-up Echo (just $69) may be your better bet.

Alexa turns on your TV, and it feels like magic.
Update, Nov. 27: This deal is no longer available. Fire TV Cube review.

The Echo Spot is fine for what it is, but Amazon still hasn't done enough to convince us that Alexa needs a touchscreen at all.
