First, let’s look at Amazon’s Cyber Monday Deals last year:
Echo Dot $29.99 (save $20)
All-New Echo for $79.99 (save $20)
All-New Echo Plus for $119.99 (save $30)

While there is a distinct lack of Wow Factor here, the good news is there’s a clear warning against the need to rush to buy on Black Friday. Amazon will carry over its Black Friday deals to Cyber Monday and likely run them on Saturday and Sunday as well.
One word of warning.
Surprisingly, you can buy several Amazon devices cheaper at Kohls. Also, if you want a wide selection of TVs then look at Best Buy’s selection. For games consoles, again Kohl’s comes out on top, while Target’s Cyber Monday sale will have price cuts compared to Black Friday thanks to its REDcard discount. Lastly, Walmart is selling iPhones with up to $400 off.
And remember: Black Friday starts earlier this year on November 23, 2018.
