Save $30 on Kindle Paperwhite – big Amazon Black Friday deals are here

We're still a few days away from official Black Friday deals in the US, but Amazon is already offering big bargains that will leave you feeling thankful by the time Thanksgiving rolls around. 

Amazon Black Friday deals have already started, even though the actual Black Friday date falls on November 24. Amazon, however, is getting the party started early with slashed prices across the board for its Kindle and Fire lines.

Also, if you're looking for deals well under $5, you might want to check out Amazon's prices for its Dash Buttons that let you immediately order new household products like laundry detergent with just the click of a button. They're currently 50% off, costing $2.50 each.

All of the deals listed are live now, and they'll remain valid until midnight PT on Cyber Monday (November 27). This is just the beginning, however, as even more Amazon Black Friday deals are on the way, followed closely by Amazon Cyber Monday deals.

As you might expect, most of Amazon's early Black Friday deals center around its own products.

The Kindle e-reader in particular remains one of Amazon's most-loved devices even after all these years, so these deals make today and the week to come an excellent time to pick one up if you're new to the line, or simply seeking to upgrade.

Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet - $40 off
Now $89.99 (was $129.99)
The Fire HD 8 tablet has a massive, thick shell that can handle almost anything your kids throw at it. Almost. (The 8-inch screen is left to fend for itself.)

Fire 7" Kids Edition Tablet - $30 off
Now $69.99 (was $99.99)
It's essentially the same device as the Fire 8 but a tad smaller. Less room to worry about that screen breaking, you know? And at $70, we're almost to the price of a regular Kindle. Nice. Both versions also come with parental controls and a browser that automatically weeds out mature content.

Dash buttons - $2.50 off
Now $2.50 (was $5)
Amazon's Dash buttons are inexpensive to begin with, in part because the company hopes you'll buy one for everything from toothpaste and laundry detergent to garbage bags and Doritos.  At half off the regular price, you can practically pepper your house with them.
