With 5% back on all Amazon purchases, you should probably have one of Amazon’s credit cards anyway. Now though, they’re boosting that to an astounding 20% on a wide array of items from throughout the store. You can find all of the eligible products, and also apply for the card, here. If you’re instantly approved, you’ll be able to use the card and score the cash back deals immediately.
An SSD is the best upgrade you can give your older computer, and Samsung’s 850 EVO line is the most popular one there is. A worldwide NAND shortage has reversed the previously inexorable downward price trend on these things over the past year or so, but today on Amazon, the 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB models are all down to the best prices of the year.
The Fire 7, Fire HD 8, and Fire HD 10 aren’t ever going to be confused with iPad Pros, and that’s fine. They have good-enough screens, can play videos from all of the major online video services, and can handle basic gaming and web browsing with ease. Anecdotally, I’ve found that they’re also extremely popular devices for kids. So if you’ve had an inkling that you might want to buy one, Today’s the day to do it.
The Fire 7 is down to a ridiculously low $30, but it’s probably worth spending $20 more for the HD 8, which has a better screen, twice the storage, and 50% better battery life. If you’re going to primarily use the device as a portable TV screen, the 1080p HD 10 is a great bargain at $100.
Amazon’s breakthrough Echo smart speaker has spawned an entire family of products, and a whole bunch of them are down to all-time low prices for Black Friday, including a $20 discount on the brand new flagship Echo, a $30 discount on the smart home-ready Echo Plus, and a whopping $50 discount on the touchscreen Echo Show.
Amazon’s first-party gadgets are always hot commodities come the holidays, and all of their Black Friday deals (that we know of) are available now.
The full-size (and 4K-compatible) Fire TV isn’t discounted, but the compact and very capable Fire TV Stick is impulse-priced at $25.
The two entry level Kindles are both $30 off, with additional savings available on Kids and Essentials bundles. Our advice - get the Paperwhite. The extra $40 is well worth a screen that’s twice as sharp, and includes a backlight. If you don’t mind buying a refurb, you can also get the Kindle Voyage, complete with an ambient light sensor and pressure-sensitive page-turning bezels, for $120.
Amazon only came out with the Cloud Cam about a month ago, but that won’t stop them from offering a $20 discount.
Amazon’s entire selection of Dash buttons is 50% off, bringing them all down to $2.50. The first time you use them though, you’ll still get a $5 account credit, so you actually stand to (sort of) make money here.
Have someone on your holiday list that’s difficult to shop for? I guarantee they’ll get use out of a good USB battery pack, because who doesn’t need extra battery power from time to time? Anker’s PowerCores are our readers’ favorites, and several models are on sale for Black Friday.
I’m partial to the PowerCore Fusion, because it has fold-out AC prongs, so you can plug it straight into the wall and use it as a regular wall charger.
If your giftee already has a big battery pack, it’s worth owning a pocket-sized model as well.
The PowerCore II 20000 features Anker’s newest technology, which ensures your phone will get the fastest possible charging speed.
And the classic PowerCore 10000 strikes a great balance between size (it can fit in a jacket pocket or small purse with ease) and capacity: About 2-3 full phone charges.
After teasing us with some appetizers earlier in the week, Anker just opened up the floodgates on their Black Friday deals, including several that our exclusive to our readers.
There are too many deals to include them all here, but head over to this post for a complete roundup.
Whether you’re building a new gaming PC, buying one pre-made, or upgrading your existing rig, Amazon’s Black Friday PC gaming deal has something for you.
You can find all of the deals by heading to Amazon, but we also highlighted some of our favorites here.
Whether you need a new Wi-Fi router, more ethernet ports, a modem to call your own, or some smart switches to start automating your home, Amazon’s TP-Link Black Friday sale has you covered.
There are two pages of deals here spanning nearly all of TP-Link’s product line. A few of our favorite deals are below, but be sure to head over to Amazon to see the full selection. Just remember that these deals are only available today, so lock in your orders before Amazon pulls the plug.
Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 tablets are a lot like Surface Pros on the inside, except they come with they keyboard cover (sporting the iconic ThinkPad key design, of course), work with some unique add-on modules, and are a lot cheaper, at least with today’s deal. Prices range from $500 to $950 depending on the specs you choose, but they’re all solid values if you like the idea of a convertible Windows hybrid computer.
Anker has long been our readers’ go-to manufacturer for inexpensive mobile phone accessories, but now they’re stretching their tentacles into higher-end markets, and you can save $150 on one of their most ambitious products to date, today only with promo code P1NEBULA.
Marketed under their Nebula home theater brand, the Mars Portable Cinema is a projector that you can take anywhere. Packing a 19,500mAh battery, the Mars can project a 150" image at 720p for up to three hours away from a power outlet; more than enough for an outdoor movie night, or even a watch party for a big game. Its built-in JBL speakers should also be sufficiently loud and clear, but you can of course plug in any sound system you want with a 3.5mm cable.
The Mars even runs Android (a weird version of it, admittedly) with support for a few popular streaming apps. But of course, any streaming stick like the Fire TV Stick can plug right into its HDMI port, and utilize the Mars’ USB port for power. And if you have an iPhone or iPad, you can even skip all of that and stream your content directly to the projector over AirPlay, no Apple TV required.
Today’s deal is $150 less than usual, $50 less than Prime Day, and a match for the best deal ever.
If you’re going to turn outdoor movie nights into a regular occurrence, you’ll also want to invest in a good screen. There are tons of outdoor-friendly options on Amazon, but Camp Chef’s seem to be the most popular.
You can never have enough hard drive space, especially when it’s this cheap. This Black Friday only, Amazon’s discounting a wide array of Seagate internal and external hard drives to great low prices.
You’ll want to head over to Amazon to see them all, but I suspect that the most popular items will be a 2TB portable drive for $60 (there are several colors available), or the 2TB FireCuda, which can speed up your PS4's loading times with a small amount of built-in flash storage.
23andMe’s Health + Ancestry DNA test kit would make for a unique holiday gift, and it’s half off its usual price today for Black Friday. You just provide them with some saliva, and they send you back over 75 reports about your ancestry, your genetic health risks, and a lot more. It’s a bit more to take in than the ancestry-only tests out there, but knowledge is power.
It should go without saying that digital photo frames make great gifts for parents and grandparents. But even I, a tech-savvy millennial, am pretty enamored with the Nixplay Iris. It usually sells for $200, but the Peach Copper model is down to $150 today.
For $122, you can also opt for the larger Nixplay Seed in a few different colors, though it’s not nearly as nice looking as the Iris.
Tile is the ultimate device for anyone who can’t stop losing their things, and you can get four Tiles (in two different designs) for $60 today, an all-time low. Plus, if you add this $10 gift card to your cart as well, you’ll get it for free!
You’ll get two Tile Slims, which are designed to slide into a wallet or stick to objects, and two Tile Mates, which you can attach to keychains or keep in bags. Once you have your Tiles in place, the Tile app on your phone can ping them over Bluetooth and cause them to beep until you find what you’re looking for. And if your lost item is outside of your phone’s Bluetooth range, it’ll show up on a map automatically any time another Tile user comes into range.
Buying these Tiles a la carte would set you back about $100, so if you can think of four things you want to track, this is a fantastic bargain.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year...to buy Sonos stuff. A bunch of the high-end audio gear is on sale for Black Friday, including the first ever discount on the Alexa-equipped Sonos One, $50 off the still-great PLAY:1 and PLAY:3, and $100 savings on the PLAYBAR and PLAYBASE.
4K monitors might be the new hotness, but if you just want to collect 1080p displays to build out a multi-monitor setup, two great discounts from ASUS are included in Amazon’s Black Friday deals today. Get a 23.6" screen for $95, or 27" for $145.
Sony’s WH1000XM2s put the noise-canceling headphone world on notice when they were released earlier this year, and now, you can get them at a discount for the first time ever. They’re still an investment at $298, but if you spend any significant amount of time in planes, trains, or just a noisy office, they’ll probably be the best thing you buy this year.
Last year’s model is also down to $228, though its battery only lasts 20 hours compared to 30 on the new one, and its noise-cancelling engine and sound quality aren’t quite as good.
If these are out of your price range, Sony’s extra bass noise canceling cans are also on sale for $123. They won’s sound nearly as good, and don’t have all the advanced features of the 1000XM2s, but that’s still a great deal.
Want noise cancellation in a pocket-sized package? Sony’s brand new noise-canceling true wireless headphones are on sale, down to $178 from their usual $200. They don’t have great battery life, so you can’t use them continuously all day at work, but their included charging case makes it easy to top them off. And hey, they’re freaking noise-cancelling truly wireless earbuds. That’s amazing!
If price has been the barrier to entry keeping you from better audio, here’s the first opportunity since Prime Day to grab Status Audio’s CB-1s for their lowest price ever, $55, beating the previous best deals by $8.
Status is a direct-to-consumer headphone company, building great cans in proven form factors without the markup that comes with popular brands. In fact, there’s no branding here whatsoever.
The CB-1s have a (relatively) flat frequency response that’s great for listening to a variety of music or audio/video editing, with a wide sound stage in a closed back design. I get good isolation/seal with the updated pads. The inclusion of two detachable cables- coiled and straight, is also generous and welcome. Even better that they smartly attach with a twist lock.
We know from five years of Kinja Deals that great over-ear, closed back headphones for under $60 is no joke. Depending on what you’ve shelled out for in the past, they might even blow away your much more expensive pairs.
Yesterday’s big SanDisk sale is expired, but a few items remain at or near their all-time low prices for Black Friday, including some microSD cards that’ll work with your new action cam or Nintendo Switch.
It’s the best time of year to buy a Fitbit, as most of the lineup is on sale for Black Friday. Fitbit Alta HR for $100 is probably the one you want to buy, unless you’re interested in a full-featured smart watch, in which case the Fitbit Ionic comes with a $50 Amazon gift card today. For the rest of the deals, head below.
- Fitbit Ionic | $300 | Amazon | Plus $50 gift card
We see deals on leaf-style HDTV antennas pretty frequently, but if you won’t settle for anything less than the brand that started the trend, you can score a huge deal on the Mohu Leaf 30 and amplified Leaf 50 today.
