Best Amazon Black Friday deals: 12 best discounts available now
Black Friday may now be more of a November-long sales event than specifically about that post-Thanksgiving weekend, but the official day has now arrived. And Amazon Black Friday deals are always eagerly anticipated, as they usually mean unheralded discounts on its own smart home tech, together with big price cuts on a wide range of other gadgets, toys, homeware, clothing ... the list goes on.
You can browse Amazon's Black Friday deals at your leisure directly on the website, or take a look at ten of the very best currently available below. (Please note: when you purchase through links on our site, we may earn an affiliate commission.)
Oculus Quest 2: $299
Although no retailers are actually discounting the Oculus Quest 2 virtual reality headset, Amazon is throwing in "$50 digital credit towards future Amazon.com purchases". That makes this the best Quest 2 deal since it was released, with that SRP sticking stubbornly at $299. GamesRadar rates this as a great option "if you've been waiting to get into VR, but have been put off by the requirements of a super-powerful gaming PC".
$159 (with $50 Amazon card); view deal at amazon.com
Apple Airpods Pro: $169
One of the most sought after products of Black Friday 2021 so far, Amazon has a fantastic price on the new Apple AirPods Pro to undercut the competition — and it's selling in droves. This was $10 cheaper yesterday, so you may have missed its cheapest price. But $169 is still excellent value.

Sony WF-1000XM4 wireless earbuds: $248
Topping lists of the best wireless earbuds at websites such as What H-Fi and TechRadar, the much-anticipated Sony earbuds haven't dissapointed. The former described them as "one of the most feature-packed, user-friendly and sonically gifted pair of wireless earbuds we've tested," with "some of the best noise-cancelling we've heard in this category, and absolutely stunning sound quality".

Amazon Echo Dot (4th generation): $29.99
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are always a good time to get discounts on Amazon's store brand smart hime tech, and this year is no exception. The latest and greatest Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker was released in the Spring, and this is its cheapest price yet. For that you get improved audio from previous iterations, and — of course — Alexa voice control. Alternatively, you can get its predecessor for just $19.99 with a Sengled smart bulb thrown in for free.

Apple MacBook Air M1: $849.99
If you want the best laptop "ever made" — according to TechRadar, which describes it as a "a thin and light laptop that offers great performance, even with 4K video editing, while also offering incredible battery life" — then this Amazon deal is the one to opt for. The 256GB version of the 2020 AirBook running on the rapid M1 chip is down to a ridiculously low price and we'd be surprised if it got any cheaper now this year.
$849 (saving $150); view deal at amazon.com
Apple Watch SE: $219
This is an example where Amazon can boast delivering the best price ever this Black Friday — the 40mm Apple Watch SE with GPS has never been this affordable before. Only the version with the blue sport band is available, but you can expect this smartwatch to sell quickly. It lets you take calls and reply to texts, track your daily activity, and has a vivid Retina display.
$219 (saving $60); view deal at amazon.com
iRobot Roomba 692 robot vacuum: $174.99
Automatic, smart vacuum cleaners aren't going to be for everybody, but the technology is getting better and better, and iRobot Roombas are leading the way. This one is the brand's best seller, combining affordability with voice activation and smart AI. Now down to its lowest ever price thanks to yet another discount from Amazon today.
$174 (saving $125); view deal at amazon.com
Amazon Fire TV 4-Series 50" 4K smart TV: $329.99
Amazon has reserved one of its most eye-catching TV deals for its store brand tech. Released earlier this year, the 50-inch version of the Amazon Fire TV 4-Series includes an ultra HD display, Dolby Digital Plus surround sound, and the benefit of the company's Fire TV smarts and Alexa-enabled voice controls. With a discount that started earlier this month, you can now buy this TV for its cheapest price yet.
$329 (saving $140); view deal at amazon.com
LG C1 65" OLED 4K Smart TV: $1,769.99
If you're a frequent gamer, it's worth having the TV hardware to match the power of your next-generation console. GamesRadar has rated LG's OLED C1 series as the best gaming TV on the market, and Amazon currently has a discount on the 65-inch model. In addition to the regular 4K display, there's a dedicated Game Optimizer that helps with smooth motion handling and frame merging. But this isn;t just for gamers, and will also suit movie fans and sport fanatics who are prepared to blow the budget this year.
$1,769 (saving $700); view deal at amazon.com
Blink Mini smart security camera: $19.99
Proving that Black Friday isn't all about big-ticket purchases, this is a sub-$20 bargain. The Blink Mini smart security camera syncs up with your smartphone or connected Amazon smart home device and uses its motion sensor (with night vision) to alert you if it detects any strange goings on in your home. It also features two-way audio and records to 1080p HD quality.
$19 (saving $15); view deal at amazon.com
OnePlus 9 smartphone: $599.99
You may not have heard of it before, but OnePlus is a smartphone brand that brings flagship specs at mid-range prices. The OnePlus 9 has been highly rated across the web, with TechRadar calling it "a great-value option with no major drawbacks". It has a 6.55in screen, 50MP main camera, 8GB Ram and 128GB storage. TechRadar was particularly impressed with the camera tech and fast battery recharging. And if you want a bigger screen and even more power then you can upgrade to the OnePlus 9 Pro for an extra $200.
$599 (saving $130); view deal at amazon.com
Celestron SkyMaster Giant 15x70 Binoculars: $89.95
Stargazing binoculars have been a bit of a breakout hit this Black Friday, and these are probably the best value options Amazon has to offer. They're designed specifically for low light conditions, and are kitted out with beefy 70mm objective lens.

Was your Amazon account hacked? Here’s what you need to do
Amazon stands for huge selection, fair prices and good service. This is where you go shopping when everything should be as smooth, fast and easy as possible. But with the popularity of Amazon, the security risks are also growing. More and more hackers try to crack buyer accounts and then go on a shopping spree at someone else’s expense. If your Amazon account has been hacked, you need to act quickly. Start by following these steps.
Step 1: Change your Amazon password
If you believe your Amazon account has been hacked, the first thing you should do is to immediately log in to your Amazon account and change your password. To do this, click on Account and Lists, Your Account, and then on Login and Security at the top of the page.
To the right of “Password” click on Edit. Then enter the old password in the uppermost field and the new one in the fields below. Your new password should consist of a unique combination of numbers, letters and special characters, and it’s best if you don’t use terms that are in a dictionary. It’s important you create an entirely new password and switch your Amazon account password to one that you use for other services such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Finally, click Save Changes.
There’s one more step here: make sure to change the password of the email account associated with your Amazon account as well. This is important because it’s possible that hackers may have used it to obtain the access data for your Amazon account. How this works depends on your e-mail provider. If you are a Gmail user, check out this blog article about how to tell if your account was hacked.
One way to make sure you are always using unhackable passwords is to use a password manager. Either installed as a browser extension or a separate app, a password manager will create strong, unique passwords for you and safely store them for convenient access.
Step 2: Review your account information
Next, check if your Amazon account has been tampered with. You can do this by going back into Account and Lists and Your Account. For example, check the stored payment methods (“Your Payments”), billing and shipping addresses (“Your Addresses”), phone numbers and email addresses (“Login and Security”). If you discover any changes, log them using screenshots and then correct them.
If you haven’t done so already, at this point you should contact Amazon directly and report that your account has been hacked. You can call the Amazon customer service hotline for further assistance and to help monitor your account.
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The Monday after Thanksgiving is reserved for sweats, slippers and online shopping. Dubbed Cyber Monday because of its status as the Super Bowl of e-commerce sporting events, this 24-hour shopping span is often a great opportunity to snag discounts and deals from the comfort of your home.
Falling on Nov. 29 this year, the retail event will build upon many of the deals that have been running throughout the month of November. And if you’re in the market for some tech staples, Amazon has you covered.
1. The Oculus Quest 2 Advanced All-In-One Virtual Reality Headset, $299, is available in both 128 GB and 256 GB varieties. The all-in-one gaming system offers an immersive entertainment experience and premium display. No PC or console is needed, and if you buy an Oculus Quest 2 by Nov. 29, you will receive a $50 digital credit toward future Amazon.com purchases.
2. Amazon Fire TV 55″ 4-Series 4K UHD smart TV is currently the site’s number one “New Release” seller. “Scenes leap off the screen,” thanks to the model’s 4K ultra HD capabilities — and users can watch live TV, play video games and stream music all in one place. Originally priced at $519.99, this TV is selling for $379 this weekend.
3. Need a new computer? The Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3 11″ Laptop is on sale for $159. Able to boot up in seconds and featuring easy-to-use Chrome OS, this machine offers plenty of memory, storage and more.
4. Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones with noise-cancelling capabilities and Alexa Voice Control are currently 50% off, priced at $179. This gift offers a noise-rejecting dual-microphone system for clear sound and voice pick-up, and is currently listed as an Amazon #1 Best Seller.
5. Check out the Fitbit Sense Advanced Smartwatch, which is currently on sale for $199, representing a savings of $100. Featuring tools for heart health and stress management, this one-size-fits-all piece of wearable technology is a great gift for health-conscious family and friends.
Here's a really affordable deal for Xbox owners.
Right now, the PDP Gaming Remote control for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Xbox One is on sale for $9. That's $13 off the full retail price. This remote works with Xbox consoles to help make navigation easier for those that don't like video game controllers.
It essentially makes the Xbox feel closer to a Roku experience. You won't use this remote control for gaming, but rather navigating through various media apps like Netflix and Hulu.
I've personally used PDP Xbox media remotes and can tell you that they're easy to use and durable.
PDP Gaming Remote Control for Xbox: was 22 now $9
We named the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 as the best Android tablet "when price is no concern" on our best Android tablets list. Well, with this deal, it might just make one of the best Android tablets around a top Cyber Monday buy as well.
Right now, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is on sale at Amazon for $499. That's a $150 savings on the original retail price. Not only that, its bigger brother, the Galaxy Tab S7+, is on sale for $729, which is a $200 savings.
This is a historic low price on Amazon for the Tab S7. The Tab S7+ did see a brief jaunt at $682 at the end of March, but has not come near that price since. We're unsure if this was a pricing error.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7: was $649 now $499
We have to throw some game deals in the mix, and one that's definitely worth playing is Hades.
Right now, Hades is on sale for $19 for Nintendo Switch, which is a $15 savings. This Rougelike (dungeon crawler's with procedurally-generated levels and permadeath), by indie developer Supergiant Games, became a quick critical darling as it started taking many Game of the Year awards in 2020. A year later, it's now on Nintendo Swtich.
In it, you play the son of Hades, Zagreus, as he attempts to escape the underworld and reach mount Olympus. But it's a treacherous journey, and often Zagreus ends up dead, only to be thrown back to his home, with his father often toiling away at paperwork. It's a game with a lot of style and heart. Plus, the characters, who are also Greek gods, are dripping with personality. Hades can be hard and unforgiving, but that's part of the charm. Because every time you try to escape, you get a little bit better.
Hades: was $34 now $19
Yesterday we posted that the Echo Dot (4th Gen) Kids edition, featuring cute animal characters and parental controls, was on sale. Well, it seems that Amazon has extended those savings to the regular version as well.
Right now, the Echo Dot (4th Gen) is on sale for $34. That's a $25 savings. The deal is available for both the glacier white and twilight blue colorways.
In our review, we gave the fourth generation Echo Dot a strong four-out-of-five score, praising its overall audio quality, suite of Alexa home skills and its inexpensive price. If we thought the Echo Dot was impressive at $59, it's even more so at $34.
Echo Dot (4th Gen): was $59 now $34
We already updated the liveblog yesterday with this AirPods Pro deal. But throughout the weekend, it's been going in-and-out of stock with fluctuating prices. Well, right now, the Apple AirPods Pro are back at $159, down from its original $249, netting a $90 savings. We have no idea how much longer this deal will stay live, so if you've been hunting for this pair of pods, now's the time to strike.
Apple AirPods Pro: was $249 now $159
Hi, this is Imad. I'm the news editor here at Tom's Guide. I'll be taking over the Amazon Cyber Monday liveblog for the next four hours. Expect a lot of great gaming, component, workout and other tech deals.
2021 has been a hard year to build a PC. Not only have component shortages led to a decrease in supply, everyone working from home also increased demand on components. Finding a deal on memory has been a struggle. Well, not today!
Right now, Amazon has the XPG DDR4 D50 RGB 16GB kit on sale for $57. That's $32 off the normal retail price, and a great deal overall on RGB memory, which tends to be pricier. This is actually the lowest price we've seen for this kit ever.
This kit includes two 8GB sticks of RAM. The 32GB kit is also on sale for $119, which is a $70 savings. From our research, that's a historic low for this kit as well.
XPG DDR4 D50 RGB 16GB (2x8GB) 3200MHz Desktop Memory: was $89 now $57
The Hero10 Black is GoPro's new action camera, adding a new processor, higher resolution and improved image stabilization into an already compelling package. We awarded it 4.5 stars in our review — and named it the best action camera overall — and it's even better value right now. This deal direct from GoPro is not only $100 cheaper than we've seen it elsewhere, but also throws in a 1-year GoPro subscription and accessories pack.
GoPro Hero10 Black + accessories + subscription: was $549 now $349 @ GoPro
We weren't sure if it would happen, but it has, iRobot's newest robot vacuum has gone into the sales. You can now get a generous $200 off this latest model. It stands out for guaranteeing to avoid pet poop, and it's so effective that it's taken the top spot as the best Roomba we've tested. It comes with a self-empty cleaning base and it's one of the smartest robot vacuums we've seen — it learns more with each run.
iRobot Roomba j7+: was $849 now $649 @ Amazon
We all want to sound better, whether we're taking video calls and don't want to use a headset, recording or streaming. The Blue Yeti Nano USB Microphone can do it all, and right now it's just $79 at Amazon.
I happen to own this mic and I'd say it's one of the best things I've purchased over the last couple of years. Two custom mics provide broadcast-quality sound, and there's multiple pickup patterns for pro recording and streaming. I also like the onboard controls and compact design.
Blue Yeti Nano USB Microphone: was $99 now $79 @ Amazon
In case you missed it: Here is a great streaming and audio deal in one. The Roku Streambar is on sale for $79 at Amazon, which is its lowest price ever!
I tested the Streambar myself and found it does a solid job of combining a 4K streaming player with a decent-quality speaker. The four drivers have no problem filling my small living room with clear, full sound. It's an affordable, attractive option for anyone who's somehow relying on their television set's built-in speakers in the year of our Lord 2021. You also get brilliant HD picture, speed performance and Roku's intuitive OS in one elegant little package.
Roku Streambar: was $129 now $79 @ Amazon
Since it's full-on winter where I live, I've been walking less outdoors — which is why a home treadmill is absolutely essential to staying fit this season.
The Bowflex Treadmill T22 is $2,199, which admittedly is expensive. But this high-end machine is worth the investment. I reviewed it earlier this year and it is a beast of a treadmill. It's built like a tank, has a powerful 4.0 HP motor and features a gorgeous 22-inch HD touchscreen.
Your purchase also comes with a free 1-year membership to JRNY, which houses hundreds of trainer-led workouts. Plus, the T22 lets you log into your streaming services like Netflix and Disney Plus, so you can binge while you run. Check out our Black Friday treadmill deals page for all the latest discounts.
Bowflex T22: was $3,599 now $2,699
When you're working from home full-time, as I am, it's far too easy to spend the entire day sitting — which is bad for your health.
A standing desk is a much better option, because it pushes you out of your chair. The Flexispot EG1 desk is $209, which is $90 off regular price. The low-noise motor lift mechanism raises the desktop from 28.6 to 48.2 inches at a speed of 1 inch per second. A 55"x 28" solid slice board sits on an industrial-grade steel frame, which can support up to 132 pounds of weight. Assembly and installation are easy, so you can work while standing all the sooner.
Flexispot EG1: was $299 now $209
Senior writer Kelly Woo here to update the Amazon Cyber Monday live blog for the next couple of hours.
Last year's Great Toilet Paper Shortage introduced a lot of people to the idea of bidets, which have been popular overseas for years. If you didn't invest in one then, now is your chance because the Bio Bidet Bliss BB2000 is just $399. That's a whopping $300 discount!
This bidet comes with a heated seat, adjustable water temperature, an air dryer, night light and remote control. The 3-in-1 stainless steel nozzle is durable and easy to clean.
Bio Bidet Bliss BB2000: was $699 now $399
We've already highlighted the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K earlier in this blog. That's a great streaming device if you own a 4K TV. However, statistically speaking, a lot of you probably don't. As such, we should point out that the 1080p variant — the Amazon Fire TV Stick — is also on sale. Better still, this version is available for only $20, down from its usual $40.
The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a pretty straightforward gadget. You hook it up to your TV, you connect it to the Internet, and you can access all of your favorite streaming services. The Fire TV Stick has apps for Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus and even Apple TV. (Amazon and Apple are playing nicer now than they have in the past.) You can also access music, photos and other files that you've stored on your Amazon account.
To be fair, the Fire TV Stick has pros and cons compared to similar gadgets, and you can read about them on our best streaming devices page. But if you have a 1080p TV, a lot of streaming media subscriptions and $20 to spend, it's an easy recommendation, especially since these things tend to sell out as the holidays approach.
Amazon Fire TV Stick: was $39 now $19 @ Amazon
Good afternoon and welcome to the best early Amazon Cyber Monday live blog. I'm Marshall Honorof, senior editor at Tom's Guide, and I'll be taking charge of the blog for the next hour or so.
My area of expertise is gaming, so it seems fitting to kick things off with a video game deal. As I write this, "Guardians of the Galaxy" is trending on Twitter. I'm not 100% certain why, but I think it might have something to do with the fact that Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, a recent action/adventure game for modern consoles and PC, is currently on sale at Amazon. What's more — the discount is pretty steep.
Even though the game just came out last month, Guardians of the Galaxy is already more than 50% off: $26 instead of its usual $59. Don't be alarmed by the sudden price drop; the game is actually quite good. In our full Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy review, we praised its heartfelt story, its affable cast, its excellent level design and its killer soundtrack. (The combat is so-so, but it's not the only thing you'll be doing in the game.) You can get it for PS4, PS5, Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S, and it's more than worth the asking price.
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: was $59 now $26 @ Amazon
Since I write about phones a lot, I like to encourage people to look beyond the most famous brands to see if lesser-known phone makers have a product that suits them better. If you're an Android user keen on mobile gaming, my pick for you would be the RedMagic 6S Pro, currently discounted by $160 to $789.
RedMagic's phones offer the key features you need to play the latest mobile games — a top of the line chipset, a high display refresh rate, as much RAM as my laptop and even a built-in mechanical fan for when things get hot. But despite all that, it still manages to be cheaper than most of its rivals. The phone's design may not be to your taste, and the camera system could be better, but if performance is your priority, you should shortlist this for your next phone.
RedMagic 6S Pro: was $949, now $789 @ Amazon
Staff writer Richard Priday here again for another couple of recommendations.
Over the last year I've been getting into smart home tech, and particularly with smart plugs. Being able to control the lights in my house from my phone is a luxury I enjoy every day, so if you're also new to smart home gear, you may want to try this Kasa Smart Mini Plug 2-pack for $9.99, down from $19.99.
They're straightforward to set up and use over WiFi, and are as versatile as what you can think of to plug into them. Plus they have a nice big button on the side so if you need to switch them on or off manually, it's no more difficult than with a regular socket.
Kasa Smart Mini Plug 2-pack: was $19.99, now $9.99 @ Amazon
Now here's a deal that sucks, only in a good way: you can get a robot vacuum for a lot less in the Cyber Monday sales. Notably, iRobot Roomba 692 is a robot vacuum cleaner with a host of smart features.
It sports a 3-stage cleaning system and multi-surface brushes, the latter of which are rather effective at cleaning pet hair and other dirt. The iRobot Roomba 692 also works with Amazon Alexa and has geofencing to stop the robot from wandering, or rolling, off.
iRobot Roomba 692: was $299 now $174 @ Amazon
Reading is pretty good, given you're doing it right now! But carrying a load of books around can be tricky, which is why a Kindle is a compelling gadget. And now is the time to get one.
That's because you can save a neat $35 on the Kindle Paperwhite. With a 6.8-inch display and adjustable light, it should make reading a collection of book, be it on your sofa or on a crowded train, much more enjoyable than peering at the smaller display on a smartphone via the Kindle app.
Kindle Paperwhite 2021: was $139 now $104 @ Amazon
Roland here, back again with another deal, this time for a TV. Big TVs can be expensive, but thanks to a combination of TCL’s keen pricing and Cyber Monday deals, you can get a 50-inch 4K smart television for a rather affordable price
Case in point this TCL 50” QLED Roku TV, which has been sliced to $449 thanks to Amazon. With features such as Dolby Vision and HDR10 support, as well as voice assistant and built-in Roku the TV is no budget slouch either. Do keep in mind that TVs are among the most popular products during Cyber Monday sales so the offer isn't likely to last long.
TCL 50" 4K QLED Roku TV: was $699 now $449 @ Amazon
Here’s another product that I thoroughly recommend. This Cyber Monday deal offers the Netgear Wi-Fi Mesh Extender (AC1750) for $69. That’s an impressive $50 off its usual price of $119.
It’s not an exaggeration to say this Wi-Fi extender is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. In fact, without this plug-in device, I probably wouldn’t have been able to do my job at all this year. I used to get terrible internet speeds in my home workspace, we’re talking unable to even load a YouTube video slow, but this extender fixed the issue completely.
There are a few Netgear different models out there, but of the three I’ve tested this one performed the best. It can boost speeds of up to 1750Mbps and has a maximum coverage of 2000 sq.ft. If you’re frustrated by WiFi dead zones in your home, give it a try.
Netgear Wi-Fi Mesh Extender (AC1750): was $119 now $69
Hello! Rory Mellon here, I’m a Staff Writer at Tom’s Guide and will be taking over this live blog for a short while to bring you some of my favorite Amazon Cyber Monday deals. Let’s start with Batman: The Complete Series on Blu-ray for $36.
I’m a huge Blu-ray collector and this set is easily the best boxset I’ve ever bought. Not only does it include the entire run of Batman: The Animated Series (and The New Batman Adventures to boot) but also comes with two feature-length movies including Mask of the Phantasm, which is among the best Batflicks ever.
I paid full price for this box set when it was originally released in 2019 and feel like I got a bargain. At $43 off this is definitely the Cyber Monday deal that has impressed me the most. I’m half tempted to buy myself a second copy as my first is starting to get worn out from overuse!
Batman: The Complete Series (Blu-ray): was $79 now $36
If there's a better way to count down to Christmas than with this Funko Pop! advent calendar themed around the characters of The Office, I can't think of it.
Available for $35 on Amazon right now — down from $59 — it gives you an adorable Funko Pop! version of 24 of your favorite Office characters, including Dwight, Michael, Pam (based on the box) and, I'm guessing, Jim, Stanley, Andy and all the rest of the gang. Open one each day and work your way towards an Office Christmas special marathon watching session on Christmas day.
Funko Pop! Advent Calendar: The Office: was $59 now $35
The best part of Cyber Monday has to be the deals that pay you to shop for a new TV. Case in point: The 48-inch LG A1 OLED, already one of the most affordable OLED TVs on the market, gets knocked down to the lowest prices we've seen for OLED technology, and Amazon adds an extra $100 Amazon credit on top of a killer sales price.
There's plenty of other reasons to get the A1 OLED, like the webOS smart platform, superb gaming performance, excellent HDR and pixel-perfect contrast, but the bottom line is simple enough — just buy it!
LG 48" A1 OLED w/ $100 credit: was $1,199 now $896
I'm 35, but despite that I still have a fascination with Lego. I've yet to indulge in the Star Wars sets that some of my colleagues have, with the exception of one small model gifted to me. But as Lego goes deeper into sets related to various film franchises, I have to say I'm tempted to splash the cash.
And now might be a good time, as Lego sets are 40% off at Amazon, with some sets starting from a low as $14. So it seems like a good opportunity to indulge in a bit of childhood nostalgia mixed with modern movie interests, especially if you want to get some Lego sets to see you through the Holiday season.
Lego sets: up to 40% off @ Amazon
Another rather appealing deal comes in the form of an Amazon Fire TV Cube, which is what you'd get if an Echo and a Fire TV box were smashed together, and Amazon has knocked the price of the Fire TV Cube down to $79 — a $40 saving.
The point of the Fire TV Cube is to unify your existing A/V equipment, and give you the option to control them with Alexa voice commands. The Fire TV Cube is compatible with soundbars, A/V receivers, cable and satellite boxes. The cube also offers the full Fire TV experience, and supports 4K, Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and Dolby Atmos.
Amazon Fire TV Cube: was $119 now $79
While I'm very much on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 side of things, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is still a compelling foldable phone, And now it's more affordable than ever.
Amazon has cut $150 off the flip phone, meaning it's now $849. That get's you flagship Android phone specs in a neat and fresh/retro form factor. In use, it's a rather lovely little phone, especially given it has an expanded notification screen when it's closed. So if you want a phone that offers a big display but doesn't have a big footprint in your pocket, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is well worth a look.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3: was $999 now $849 @ Amazon
Roland Moore-Colyer here taking over to bring you some select Cyber Monday deals. And this is one deal I can really get behind: Amazon has knocked the price of the Xbox Razer Kishi (for Android) to just $59. That's a neat saving of $40 for a device that can make playing Xbox Game Pass on Android a whole lot better.
Very tempted by this deal myself, just need to find a U.K. equivalent as I'm not in the States. Oh and iPhone users, you can get the Razer Kishi for $77.
Razer Kishi (for Android): was $99 now $59
If you have a gaming PC, or you're lucky enough to have a PS5, then this is definitely a game you need to play. Deathloop, on sale for $29, is a delightful puzzle of a game, but with plenty of first-person action mixed in too.
On the island of Blackreef, Colt Vahn (your character) wakes up with his memories missing, only to find that the isle is stuck in a 24-hour timeloop, and the hippie-like cult who lives there aren't pleased to see him. You'll repeat the day over and over, going to different locations at different times, assembling a dangerous arsenal of weapons and abilities, and learning more about how the island works.
Maybe with enough knowledge and firepower, you can escape. But you also need to watch out for the game's multiplayer component, which sends in a player with the same powers as you to hunt you down and prevent you from accomplishing your goals.
Deathloop (PS5 or PC): was $59 now $29 @ Amazon
We already recommended the OnePlus 9 on this live blog, but it's time to show the OnePlus 9 Pro — on sale for $899 at Amazon — some appreciation too.
A rival to the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and iPhone 13 Pro, the OnePlus 9 Pro undercuts both on price (even moreso when on sale like this), while offering similar specs. You get 12GB RAM and 256GB storage and a Snapdragon 888 chipset, as well as a 6.7-inch QHD 120Hz display and quad rear cameras, covering main, ultrawide, telephoto and monochrome duties.
The most enjoyable unique part of the OnePlus 9 Pro is its charging. With a 65W block, you can charge up the phone faster than any other flagship device currently on sale in the U.S. And even better, it comes in the box, unlike with Samsung or Apple who now sell their phones without chargers.
OnePlus 9 Pro (unlocked, 12GB RAM/256GB storage): was $1,069 now $899 @ Amazon
Good news Apple fans — the second-generation AirPods are back at Amazon for a low price of $109!
Note that this is the version with the wired charging case, so you won't be able to drop these on a charging pad to power them up. However they still offer the same great sound and 5 hours of battery life (over 24 hours with the case) in a compact package, and work brilliantly with all your Apple gear. They're still great wireless earbuds generally though, if you want to pair them with a PC or Android device.
Note that these aren't the brand new AirPods 3, which use a refreshed design and offer slightly different features. If we spot any good deals for those though, we'll be sure to let you know.
AirPods (2nd gen) with wired charging case: was $159, now $109 @ Amazon
Good morning! This is Richard Priday (TG staff writer) taking the reins of this live blog for the next couple of hours.
Whether it's for work or play, having the extra resolution provided by a QHD monitor is great for better appreciating the details of what's on screen. That's why I like the look of LG's 27QN600 monitor, on sale at $229. At 27 inches, it's plenty big enough without being so large as to start taking over your desk, supports AMD FreeSync and HDR 10 and comes with useful features like dual HDMI ports and an adjustable stand.
LG 27" Monitor: was $249 now $229 @ Amazon

It's not always easy getting kids to share, especially when it comes to electronics. Amazon has a Cyber Monday solution: Why not get two of its tablets for essentially the price of one?
The retail giant is running a promotion that lets you get two versions of the Fire 7 Kids Tablet for $100. Considering that just one tablet normally goes for $99, you're saving 50% on your pair of Fire 7 Kids devices. (If you just need one, the current promotion has reduced the cost of this tablet to $59.)
You'll need to enter a promo code — '2PACK' — to get the two-for-1 deal.
Amazon Fire 7 Kids Tablet: Get two for $100
iPads are coming in and out stock so far during this Cyber Monday cycle. (You can check in our Cyber Monday iPad deals to see the status of the Apple tablet you've been eyeing.) But it should be easy to track down a popular accessory for certain iPad models, thanks to an Amazon sale.
The Apple Pencil 2 is $30 off at Amazon, bringing its cost to just under $100. It's a great accessory for the iPad Pro models and it works with the new iPads as well. In addition to drawing and taking notes with the pencil, you'll appreciate how it attaches to your tablet for charging and pairing.
Apple Pencil (2nd generation): was $129 now $99
Tuft & Needle's mattresses routinely land on our list of the best mattresses, so when the company is teaming up with Amazon to knock up to 30% off the cost of its products for Cyber Monday, that gets our attention.
We're particularly struck by the savings on the Tuft & Needle Mint mattress, which is specifically designed to accommodate hot sleepers. The 30% discount at Amazon brings the cost of the Mint mattress down to $836 for the queen-size version — a savings of nearly $360.
You'll find other Tuft & Needle mattresses on sale if the Mint isn't to your taste, with the discounts ranging from 20% to 30% off the regular price.

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 isn't the only foldable phone that's available at a discount for Amazon's Cyber Monday sale. The Motorola Razr is on sale, too, and its price is getting an even bigger cut.
Of course, there's probably a reason that the Razr is now available for $799 — a massive $600 cut off its original price. This is a successor to the first Razr foldable, a phone that exactly impress in its debut thanks to its questionable durability, poor battery life and lackluster camera. The new Motorola Razr looks to correct those issues while retaining the flip phone design and foldable screen that caught everyone's eye.
We don't know if the Motorola Razr can challenge Samsung's place as the maker of the best foldable phones. But for $799 instead of $1,399, Motorola is betting you may be tempted to find out for yourself.
Motorola Razr: was $1,399 now $799
In our recent Tile Pro 2022 review, we declared the latest version of Tile's top-of-the-line tracker to once again be the best key finder you could buy. And while the new Tile Pro gets a redesigned look, the feature set is basically the same.
So why not grab the last Tile Pro — the 2020 version? It has the same range and loud alarm as its successor, plus a more compact design. Because the battery is replaceable, there's no need to worry about this Tile becoming outdated.
And right now, you can get the Tile Pro 2020 for less than the 2022 version. The Tile Pro costs just $24 at Amazon — a $10 discount off the regular price. The Tile Pro 2022 is great, but at this price, the 2020 version is still an excellent choice for a key finder.
Tile Pro 2020: was $34 now $24
When it comes to sales, this one's a breath of fresh air: You can save 26% on one of our favorite air purifiers in Amazon's extended Black Friday and Early Cyber Monday deals. All puns aside, this is a bargain you don't want to pass up.
Our top-ranked air purifier, the Coway Airmega suits smaller rooms up to 361 sq. ft., but don’t let its size fool you; it still comes with three fan speeds as well as an eco setting and an ionizing function. There’s a useful air quality indicator light on top and a handy timer function too (one, four or eight hours).

When you want to keep a lot of things cold, it's hard to beat a YETI cooler. Designed to handle the rougher aspects of camping and working outdoors, these coolers also do an incredible job of fighting the heat – customers praise the coolers for keeping ice frozen for days. But the hassle-free design stands up to everything, shrugging off the bumps and bangs of outdoor activities and offering enough space for 50 cans.
The best part? Amazon has the Yeti Tundra 75 for a whopping $250 off!

If you've ever wanted to play barista at home, now is your chance. The Nespresso Vertuo brews single serve coffee or espresso cups at the touch of a button. Think Keurig but more premium. And the price is now less premium because of Amazon's Cyber Monday sale.
You can brew 5 ounce or 7.77 ounce coffees, as well as single and double espresso. The best part is how the Vertuo creates the perfect crema. And the machine only takes 15 seconds to heat up.
Nespresso Vertuo by De'Longhi: was $209 now $156
It's not Cyber Monday without a sale on Amazon's Fire tablets. But this one is the best of the bunch. Right now you can get the Fire HD 10 for just $74.99, which is 50% off the regular price.
The Fire HD 10 features a swift octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. And we saw over 13 hours of battery life in our testing. We also like the sharp abright full HD display. And, of course, Alexa is built in for easy access.
Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet: was $149 now $74
Well that went fast. The AirPods Pro temporarily dropped to $159, matching the lowest price ever. And within minutes the deal was sold out. However, we would keep checking stock to see if this discount comes back.
The AirPods Pro at this price is worth seeking out. You get active noise cancellation, three different size eartips, Spatial audio support and sweat- and water resistance for an amazing price.
Apple AirPods Pro: was $249 now $159 @ Amazon [check stock]
The Samsung Sero is the most unique twist on the modern smart TV we've ever seen, with a rotating display, a mobile-focused design and a number of distinctive features.
The biggest feature is obviously the 43-inch display, which automatically switches between landscape and portrait mode to match the orientation of the phone it's mirroring. You can also pair it easily to a phone, with a tap-to-pair NFC tag built into the TV bezel.
But there's more to this TV than just phone-friendly features. It's also a full-featured Samsung smart TV, complete with Amazon Alexa voice control, all the streaming apps you want and 4.1-channel, 60-watt sound built into the stand. It's the perfect TV for the TikTok obsessed, and it's at an unbeatable price right now.

Get the chair that saved our own reviewer's back. Our own Marshall Honorof praised the Razer Iskur for its comfortable yet firm back support, easy-to-use controls and clever lumbar support.
So long as you don't mind the bright-green-on-black color scheme that Razer uses, it's an awesome choice whether you want a gaming chair or just a nice place to sit in your home office.
Razer Iskur gaming chair: was $499 now $349

But it's also secure, because the Samsung Fit Plus (MUF-128AB) is water-, shock-, magnet-, temperature- and X-ray-proof, which means you can bring it just about anywhere without fear of damaging your content.

If you want an incredible-looking 4K TV, there's no beating the LG C1 OLED. Amazon has a major sale on all LG C1 OLED TVs running all weekend long.
But if there's one model that takes the cake, it has to be the 77-inch LG C1 OLED, a giant webOS smart TV that boasts some of the most advanced features you can get. From its 4 HDMI 2.1 ports to built-in compatibility with Nvidia G-Sync, not to mention smart voice controls from Google and Amazon Alex, and a stunning OLED display, the 77-inch LG C1 OLED is selling now for an astonishing $900 off.
LG 77" C1 OLED: was $3,799 now $2,896
A couple of good Apple Watch are already available for Cyber Monday. For starters, you can get the Apple Watch 7 for $379, a $20 discount off its regular price. If that doesn't sound like much of a price break, keep in mind that this watch just came out and discounts are fairly rare for a watch this new.
If you don't need the latest and greatest smartwatch, though, you can really save. The Apple Watch SE has a hit a new low price of $219 — and miraculously, it still appears to be in stock.
We're following all the Apple Watch Cyber Monday deals, so check out that guide for the latest on prices.
Apple Watch 7: was $399 now $379
Apple Watch SE: was $279 now $219
A good smart-home setup will let you control heating, lights and lots more all remotely from your phone. Changing to a smart-heating setup can seem intimidating, but it needn't be. In fact, if you want to control your home's heating and cooling with ease, the current-gen Nest Thermostat will be right up your alley.
This smart system learns your habits and automatically regulates your home's temperature room by room. In our Nest Thermostat review, we liked the device's large display, intuitive interface, and the fact that it works with Alexa and Google Assistant. Best of all, it's on sale at Amazon right now for just $99.
Google Nest Thermostat: was $129 now $99
The Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Earbuds are absolutely worth your attention. They top the Tom's Guide list for best noise cancelling earbuds, thanks to stellar active noise cancellation and very strong sound quality.
As people start going back to offices and have to endure a commute, I'd fully endorse getting a pair of earbuds with ANC. There's a joy to simply being able to block out all but the noisiest of noises when traveling on public transit.
Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Earbuds: was $279 now $199
One of our favorite devices of 2021, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 has come very close to selling us on foldable phones. It boosted our productivity while commuting and is simply a fantastic device to use.
Granted, it's chunky, but such girth holds a lot more functionality than we expected. You can simply get so much more done on a phone that can become a pseudo-tablet.
The sticking point with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is its price. At nearly $1,800, it's hugely expensive for a phone, even by today's flagship standards. But Amazon has popped along and sliced the price by $300. The phone is still far from cheap, but $1,500 is much easier to swallow when you're getting two devices in one.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3: was $1,799 now $1,499
The run-up to Cyber Monday is a excellent time to secure a cheap Chromebook. These are already relatively inexpensive laptops, but the seasonal deals really slice the prices of Chromebooks. That makes them excellent purchases for someone looking for an affordable laptop for their kids or a secondary machine to throw into a backpack when travelling.
Currently, Amazon has the Samsung Chromebook 4+ for $329. It sports a 15.6-inch display for a full HD picture, and the Intel Celeron processor, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage provide everything you need.
Samsung Chromebook 4+: was $349 now $329
While it's not the biggest discount, this deal has still got a heck of a lot of appeal for anyone with a PS4 or PS5: 12 months of PlayStation Plus membership.
Why would you want PlayStation Plus? Well, it gives you access to online multiplayer, 100GB of cloud storage and a suite of free games in the form of the PlayStation Plus Collection, as well as new titles on a monthly basis. Saving a neat $20 can't be sniffed at. Get this straight away if you're not already a member.
PlayStation Plus 12-month membership: was $59 now $39
A lot of wearables have been discounted over the Cyber Monday season, and Samsung's Galaxy Watch 4 line is no exception. Sure, the Galaxy Watch 4 is pretty new, but the Discount Fairy doesn't really care about age when Cyber Monday comes around.
Right now, Amazon has knocked $50 off the price off the entire Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 range. No matter what the size or connectivity type, the discount is exactly the same — which isn't bad going.
The cheapest option, the 40mm Bluetooth-only Galaxy Watch 4, is now $199 instead of the normal $249 price tag. If you want something bigger and more powerful, the giant-sized 46mm model, with built-in 4G/LTE is now $379 — down from $429.
No matter what Galaxy Watch 4 model you get, the features are pretty much the same. There's an ECG monitor, heart-rate tracking, fall detection, body-composition measurement and everything Samsung needs to track all the different workouts you might want to do. Plus, the Galaxy Watch 4 runs on Google's new Wear OS software, which means there are more apps on offer than Samsung's older Tizen-powered smartwatches.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4: now $50 off all models
Deals season has reminded me that there are a lot more Fire TV devices than you might have realized. One you might have forgotten about is the Fire TV Cube, which is what you'd get if an Amazon Echo and a Fire TV box had a baby. Amazon has also knocked the price of the Fire TV Cube down to $79 — a $40 saving on what you'd usually pay.
The point of the Fire TV Cube is to unify your existing A/V equipment, and give you the option to control them with Alexa voice commands. The Fire TV Cube is compatible with soundbars, A/V receivers, cable and satellite boxes. The cube also offers the full Fire TV experience, and supports 4K, Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and Dolby Atmos.
Amazon Fire TV Cube: was $119 now $79
Halo is back in the news thanks to the recent launch of the Halo Infinite multiplayer. To celebrate the game's release, Microsoft teamed up with Nerf to make some of the iconic guns available as dart blasters, like the assault rifle and Needler. But there's also a blaster for the Bulldog shotgun.
It's a pretty sweet Nerf gun, helping you feel more like a Spartan. You also get a code to unlock a skin in-game that matches the Nerf replica. It's a perfect gift for Halo fans.
Nerf Halo Bulldog blaster: was $36 now $25 @ Amazon
RAM is, like many other PC components, difficult to come by, especially at a good price. But this deal over on Amazon is certainly an exception to that rule. You can grab a pair of 16GB Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO sticks for a mere $132.
And this isn't your usual, boring old couple of memory modules. Each one of these chips has ten ultra-bright, individually addressable RGB LEDs per module, letting you light up your gaming rig with a rainbow of glowing goodness.
Sold in a pair of 16GB modules, this 32GB clutch of system memory is just what your desktop needs. It might even be enough to handle all those Chrome tabs.
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 32GB RAM: was $149 now $132
Few phones have impressed us in the past year like the OnePlus 9, which continues to deliver premium phone features for less than what most flagships cost. The best thing about the OnePlus 9 this year was OnePlus' collaboration with Hasselblad to improve the cameras on its phones — long a weak point when compared to other top handsets. Instead of limiting those improvements to the OnePlus 9 Pro, OnePlus brought them to its cheaper phone as well, making the OnePlus 9 a more compelling buy.
The OnePlus 9 doesn't cost that much regularly, at $729. But Amazon is dropping the cost further, selling the OnePlus 9 for $599, a $130 discount. This is a stellar deal on an excellent phone. Better yet, it's easier to get a hold of than the Pixel 6.
OnePlus 9: was $729 now $599
If you want an upgrade from your Chromecast, then might I suggest the Nvidia Shield TV (2019)? This is one of the best streaming devices you can buy, featuring a great remote and powerful hardware. Android TV has most of the apps you could want, plus the Shield TV also acts as a Chromecast.
Nvidia has admirably kept its Shield TV devices up to date, despite the original launching in 2015. I (Jordan) still have my 2017 unit as my family's main TV hub and it endures heavy daily use. The new Shield TV remote is also a huge improvement over the previous ones with its better batteries, backlit buttons, and more substantial footprint (the old ones felt flimsy and small in the hand).
If you want more power, the Shield TV Pro is available for $199. You can also get the new remote for $29 if you want to replace one of the old ones (something I fully intend to do since my 2017 Shield TV is still kicking).
Nvidia Shield TV (2019): was $149 now $129 @ Amazon
Time for another deal that yours truly may actually be spending his savings on. Amazon's taken $200 off the 27-inch WQHD Samsung Odyssey G7 monitor, knocking its price down to $499. First and foremost, it's worth looking at because this is a QLED display that uses Samsung's Quantum Dot tech for better color output.
And with this monitor's fast 240hz refresh rate, it's a deal definitely worth checking out. On top of that, you've Nvidia's G-Sync and FreeSync for optimal smoothness, and the Infinity Core lighting to add some color to your gaming situation. As someone who is looking to build his own gaming rig at home, this is a monitor I'm considering, even though it doesn't hit 4K resolution (WQHD's 2560x1440 isn't that shabby, though).
Samsung Odyssey G7 Series 27" Gaming Monitor: was $699 now $499
Amazon's been steadily (and somewhat quietly) improving the Kindle Paperwhite, our pick for the best Kindle. But as it's been improving the design and upgrading the internals, the price has stealthily creeped up as well. Now it's at $139 by default, having been as low as $119 back in 2017. That's where Cyber Monday deals swing by to help us all out, as Amazon's cut the price down to $104.
As I wrote in my Kindle Paperwhite (2021) review, the larger 6.8-inch display is a welcome touch, as is USB-C charging. This model has wonderfully even backlighting, and it's waterproof (just like the 2018 model). To test the waterproofing, I dropped it into my kitchen sink, which was full of tap water. 20 minutes later, it came out working just as smoothly as ever.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite: was $139 now $104
Hi there, it's Henry T. Casey back again to run another hour of the Amazon Cyber Monday live blog. As for what I've got to share? First up is a pair of headphones I really want for myself, though I'm trying to not spend more on myself (even when the deal is this good).
They're the Sony WH-1000XM4 wireless headphones, which are the best overall pair of headphones, and this $101-off sale brings them to their best price ever. I've coveted them for a while because of how our review lauds their excellent sound quality and active noise cancellation. And their battery life is seriously impressive.
Sony WH-1000XM4: was $349 now $248 @ Amazon
The cook in your life will love this cast iron gift. I own several Lodge cookware pieces and they are good quality, durable, pre-seasoned and much more affordable than Le Creuset.
Lodge Essential Pan Set is $78, which is $20 off regular price. The seven-piece ensemble comes with a 10.5" Griddle, 10.25" Skillet, 10.25" Grill Pan, 6" Red Silicone Pot Holder, Red Silicone Handle Mitt, Red Pan Scraper and Black Grill Pan Scraper. Cast iron is great for cooking pretty much everything and easily moves from stovetop to oven.

As much I'd like to get a Peloton, it's just not possible for me — not for my budget, not for my apartment space.
Luckily, you don't have to spend a fortune to cycle at home. The XTERRA Folding Exercise Bike is just $129
