The calendar says it's early November, but Amazon is telling us otherwise, with early Black Friday savings on all sorts of tech goodies for you and your loved ones. As you've probably heard, there's serious supply-chain stress this year, so it makes sense to tick off that gift shopping ASAP. Imagine how relieved you'll be when you make your list, check it twice and see that you're completely done before the madness ramps up. 

How good are these early Black Friday deals? Well, Amazon's top-rated Fire HD 8 tablet is at its lowest price ever. And, the super-popular Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones are $60 off. 

Of course, if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

Shop these five stellar early Black Friday Amazon deals before they're gone:

1. Echo Dot (3rd gen) with Bluetooth Color smart light bulb

The Echo Dot is a small but mighty voice-controlled speaker. Pair it with another Echo Dot to create amazing stereo sound for less than the cost of just one Bluetooth speaker from Bose or Sonos. Alexa is included, so you can always get the latest news, weather and sports with a simple vocal request. You can control other smart home devices with your Echo Dot, too. 

"The sound quality is great," raved a five-star Amazon reviewer. "I was really surprised by how much sound comes out of this little device…."

The Echo Dot is built with multiple layers of privacy protection, too, including a physical button that turns off its microphone and disconnects it from your home Wi-Fi network.

And this Echo Dot deal includes a free Sengled Bluetooth Color smart light bulb (a $15 value). Just screw it in like a traditional light bulb and sync it to Wi-Fi and the Alexa app. Now you can turn the light on or off with the sound of your voice. This bulb changes colors too, so you can adjust the mood any time of day (or night).

2. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

In this madcap crossover, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Yoshi join forces with four friendly Rabbids (from the hit gaming franchise Raving Rabbids) in a wacky adventure to save the Mushroom Kingdom from a not-so-friendly group of invading Rabbids.

The award-winning Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for Nintendo Switch — for players ages 10 and up — is a wild co-op game full of strategy and puzzles, with new weapons and attacks. It's fun for newly minted Mario fans as well as devotees.

"This game came far out of left field," raved a delighted gamer. "Nevertheless, it's executed flawlessly. No RNG frustrations, no save scumming necessary. Lots of little nods to various Mario lore and history. Challenging scenarios, solid skill progression where I never felt over- nor under-powered, and great artwork…"

Right now, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is down from $60 to just $26 — that's 57 percent off.

3. Fire HD 8 tablet

On sale from $90 to just $45 — its all-time lowest price ever, the Fire HD 8 is one of Amazon’s most wallet-friendly tablets and a great iPad alternative because of its brilliant eight-inch HD display and its lightweight, compact design.

The Fire HD 8 tablet features a sleek new look, up to 30 percent faster speeds than previous models with a zippier processor, quicker charging with its USB-C port built-in (not featured on the last version) and 12 hours of battery life per charge instead of 10 hours. It works seamlessly with Amazon Prime Video and Amazon Music, as well as hundreds of social media apps, games and more. 

“This HD 8 boots up extremely fast. The screen movement is very smooth,” wrote a happy tablet user. “I own an HD 10 but I like this better because the size makes it easier to hold and maneuver. It is much lighter than the 10. I had a concern about the sound quality before receiving it but the sound quality is very good. The charge time is fast and the battery holds charge for a long time….I really like this tablet.”

4. Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV — Fire TV Edition

Need a small TV for a bedroom or guest space? Amazon's No. 1 bestselling Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV — Fire TV Edition is on sale for just $100! The standout set delivers eye-popping colors and exceptional picture quality — both of which are rare in this price range. The audio, too, is top notch — and Alexa is included in its remote. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling through a grid of movie titles (and who is), you can just say, 'Alexa, play In the Heights, and she’ll make your wish come true.

"I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV," raved a satisfied Amazon shopper. "As far as clarity goes, I believe HD720p is plenty for this screen size. I’m a bit of a TV snob and the lower clarity is not noticeable in this size."

5. Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones

On sale for $140 (down from $200!), the Beats Solo3 headphones have nearly 32,000 five-star reviews at Amazon. "Best headset I've ever owned," raved a five-star shopper. "I've had many headsets over the years to do my job. Now that I'm changing careers and moving into online teaching, I need a headset that is of very high-quality sound with the ability to send and receive calls and is wireless…Beats Solo3 fits the bill. It is exceptionally comfortable to wear for many hours at a time, and the battery life is phenomenal."

Beats Solo3 headphones sync to just about any smartphone or laptop via Bluetooth, deliver epic audio and give you up to 40 hours of battery life on a single charge. Impressed? You should be — most wireless headphones tap out after about 30 hours. Also? They're a holiday gift any music lover would be thrilled to receive.
