The allure of Black Friday is saving money up front, but sometimes, there are other incentives. Case in point: Amazon is offering Prime Card members 10 percent back on select electronics and smart home purchases on Amazon through the end of the month. Tons of Amazon-made products are included in the promotion, but plenty of other brands are up for grabs, too.
Millions of people transitioning to working from home this year has led to more than a few problems. Products like webcams and laptops have been in short supply, and home Wi-Fi networks are pushed to their breaking point with dozens of connected devices, Zoom calls, Netflix sessions, and email threads. In most cases, a mesh router is the best way to build a home network that deals with these new demands.
Black Friday is still almost a week away, but don't tell retailers that. All kinds of stuff has been on sale all month, and as we get closer to the big day, the deals are ramping up. Starting today, Amazon is offering discounts on practically all its hardware — and you can see some of the best deals here.

Alexa Routines have been around for years, but they’ve been getting some nice upgrades in recent months.

Amazon is finally doing something about that by bringing Fire TV integration to Alexa Routines.
Amazon is creeping its distribution fingers into another pie: drugs. Amazon Pharmacy lets customers link their insurance information if they have it and create what is said to be a secure profile to purchase and manage prescriptions. In addition, it is offering Prime subscribers the potential for massive savings online and at brick-and-mortar locations if they do not have insurance.
