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.
Today only, the Google Home Mini is down to $29 from its usual $49, and if you buy it from Bed Bath & Beyond, you’ll get a bonus $10 BB&B gift card thrown in top.
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.
Don’t need noise cancelation at all? Sony’s standard wireless over-ears and on-ears are on sale for Black Friday too.
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 are extremely comfortable out of the box, more so (for me) than the ATH-M50X, MDR7506, SR60e, or V-MODA Crossfade Wireless, just to name a few off the top of my head (ha!).
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.
The the Leaf 30 is rated for the 30 miles, and the Leaf 50 for 50 miles, but keep in mind that those figures are only under ideal circumstances, and your actual range will likely be lower. But still, it’s just about the most powerful omnidirectional antenna you can get that doesn’t require outdoor or attic installation, and these are the best prices we’ve seen. Just be sure to use promo code MOHUBLACK at checkout to maximize your savings.
DJI’s Spark is the most exciting new drone of the year. It’s roughly the size and weight of those cheap toy drones you see out there, but with significantly better flight time and performance, an automatic follow-me mode, and most crucially of all, a gimbal-stabilized 1080p camera that shoots some seriously great footage.
It was already a bargain at its $500 launch price, but its Black Friday deal just took flight, bringing it down to $397, so go earn your wings.
Ultimate Ears’ water-resistant Bluetooth speakers are some of the best looking and best sounding options out there, and two different models are on sale for all-time low prices for Black Friday.
It’s not quite as cool looking as Ultimate Ears’ offerings, but the JBL Charge 3 is our readers’ favorite waterproof speaker, and it’s also on sale for $90.
The budget-friendly Anker SoundCore 2 also remains on sale for $32, complete with its 24 hour battery life, and surprisingly great bass.
The Greenco G Pen Elite was already one of the best vaporizers for the money at its usual $150, but for Black Friday, you can get it for an all-time low $85 with promo code KINJA-BFCM.
Of, for just $66 with the same code, you can also opt for the smaller G Pen Pro, which should perform similarly, but with a smaller chamber capacity and less precise temperature adjustment. Either way, these deals aren’t available for long, so get in before they go up in a puff of smoke.
From Gizmodo’s review:
“Pleasant” has come to define much of my time with the Grenco G Pen Elite. It charges quickly via USB and has battery life that last for days of regular use. It also feels great in my tiny hands and fits easily in a coat pocket or a purse. The thing that takes it from “perfectly pleasant” to near outstanding is the price. It’s just $170. That’s damn cheap compared to it’s competitors. The Firefly 2 costs $329.95 and the Crafty retails for $339. Sure those products heat via convection instead of roasting a ceramic chamber, they’re much easier to pull on, and the clouds they produce are enough to fishbowl someone sitting with you, but for nearly half the price the Grenco G Pen Elite is a fantastic deal.
The Roku Streaming Stick+ packs more features than you’d ever think was possible in such a small dongle. You get 4K, HDR, advanced Wi-Fi, a voice remote, basically anything else you could want in a larger streaming box. It’s only about a month old, but you can already get it for $48 for Black Friday, a ~$20 discount.
What started with the reader-favorite and budget-friendly Yi action cam has since grown into an entire lineup of cameras, and they’re all on sale right now for Black Friday, from the original on up to the 4K+, which features 4K/60 capture for an all-time low $210. Personally, I think most people should go for the Yi Lite at $73, which features a built-in screen, and 1080/60 capture, or 4K up to 20 frames per second.
LG’s OLED TVs seem to have cornered the high-end market this year, and four different models are down to their lowest prices ever on Amazon right now, in anticipation of Black Friday. Choose from 55" or 65", and between the B7A and C7 line. The picture quality between the two will be identical (i.e. completely stunning), but the C7 has a higher quality industrial design and onboard Dolby Atmos audio processing.
If you’re still listening to your TV through its built-in speakers, it’s time to drop what you’re doing and grab a sound bar on sale.
For just $75, you can get an AmazonBasics sound bar with a built-in subwoofer. The bass won’t be as deep as it would be from a discrete woofer, but it’s better than nothing.
If you’d prefer a little more bass, for $158, you can step up to a 2.1 channel model from Samsung with a wireless subwoofer, or go for a 3.1 channel system for $218. Both of those prices are all-time lows.
The cool thing about those Samsung systems is that you can turn them into wireless 4.1 and 5.1 surround sound systems (respectively) with this expansion set, which is actually also on sale right now for $68.
Brother is our readers’ favorite printer brand and it’s easy to see why: they basically never jam, the toner is relatively cheap, and it prints fast (up to 32 pages per minute). The one trade off is that they don’t print in color, which when I think back to the last couple of things I’ve printed, it’s been a bunch of boring forms, so I don’t think it would be too hard of a pill to swallow.
Plus, this refurbished EHLL2360DW includes the ability to print from your mobile device. At $55, what are you waiting for?
If you really need to be able to print in color, the 3170CDW is also on sale for $160, its lowest price of the year.
VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.
NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017, or this link to get three years for $99 with code 3ydeal. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!
Tech | Lifestyle | Media | Gaming | More Deals
Nest’s iconic thermostats don’t go on sale often, and sizable discounts their other products are even rarer still, so Black Friday really is the best time of year to join the ecosystem, or expand your collection. Save $50 on the third generation Nest Learning Thermostat, $20 on the Protetct smoke detector (both the battery and wired versions), $50 on the outdoor Nest Cam, or $60 on the indoor one.
Weighted blankets can work wonders for your anxiety, or at the very least keep you warm and cozy all winter long, and you can save 10% on both kid and adult-sized blankets today with promo code INYARD10. These burst onto the scene recently, and we haven’t really seen any deals before this one, so you should take advantage if you want to give one as a gift this holiday season.
It might look like something Rey would wear while scouring for spare parts on Jakku, but this neck wrap is actually a travel pillow, and a top-selling one at that.
The Trtl pillow uses a hidden ribs to support your neck as you doze off in your tiny coach airline seat. Just wrap Trtl around your neck, placing the ribs on whichever side you want to lay your head (including directly under your chin) pop on some noise-cancelling headphones, and try your darnedest to get some shut-eye.
In case it wasn’t obvious, the big advantage of this design is size; Trtl weighs less than 1/3 of a pound, can attach to your luggage, and is far less bulky than a memory foam pillow. Amazon’s got it marked down to $21 today for Black Friday, a rare discount from its usual $30, so if you have any holiday travel on the horizon, I wouldn’t sleep on this discount.
The Breville Smart Oven is our readers’ favorite toaster oven, and the 650XL model is one of my personal favorite possessions. If I would normally cook something in the oven, I’ll try everything in my power to make it fit into the Breville instead, which usually isn’t hard, because it can fit a lot.
It’s worth every penny at its usual $180, so you’d be making a terrible mistake to miss it at $110.
If you live in a city with Amazon’s same-day Prime Now delivery service, but haven’t gotten around to using it yet, they’re running a fantastic promotion for new members to celebrate Black Friday
For a limited time, you can save $10 on your first Prime Now order with promo code BFCMGET10, and receive an additional $10 credit to use within a month. Prime Now requires you to spend $35 per order, so that means you can basically save 50% on snacks, ice cream, household essentials, and more brought right to your front door. Or, if you’ve used Prime Now before, you’ll get 25% off select items.
If you don’t own a pressure cooker, today’s a great day to fix that. The newest,
pint sized 3Qt Instant Pot Mini wants a permanent home on your kitchen counter, and it just got its biggest ever discount down to just $49, the first time it’s ever been under $50.
If you’re cooking for a larger family, the extra large 8Qt model is incredibly down to $82. For context, the previous all-time low price was $112, so this is a massive discount, and one that we likely won’t see again for some time.
This is also our readers’ favorite slow cooker, and one of their favorite rice cookers too. To put a fine point on it: It’s one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets you can own. Even if you already have one, I don’t need to tell you that these make great gifts.
It’s like AmazonBasics is having a garage sale. This giant Gold Box is full of a bunch of random AmazonBasics and Pinzon brand products, like bedding, pet supplies, cables, telescopes, and more. I’ve highlighted a couple of stand-out products below but you’re going to have just go check out and start scrolling for yourself. Thankfully, they you can navigate between categories at the top.
Some highlights: Your favorite velvet hangers, 6-pack of dimmable light bulbs, a whole bunch of flannel and microfiber sheets, resistance bands, these steering wheels for Nintendo Switch, these microfiber car wash mitts, and more.
One of the easiest home upgrades you can make is replacing that crappy shower head that came with your house or apartment. This Delta two-in-one was ranked as your absolute favorite, and today it is at its lowest price ever at $88. I bought this exact shower head six months ago and it has been worth every penny. You (probably) shower everyday, might as well make it as enjoyable as possible.
If your tires are about due for a replacement, Discount Tire Direct is offering up to $100 in Visa gift card rebates (in addition to any manufacturer rebates) when you order four new tires, plus an additional $100 if you order wheels as well, plus an extra $60 on each if you use a Discount Tire credit card. Just enter your make and model, click the options to see tires on promotion, and you’ll see the rebate amount (either $25, $75, or $100) on the right hand side.
Hands down, Nespresso is the easiest way to make decent espresso at home.
Their space-saving Inissia model with included milk frother is down to $66 and the Nepresso VertuoPlus is down to $80 for Black Friday. Those deals ought to perk you right up, because these two are some of the best we’ve ever seen.
If you’re trying to decide between the two, the VertuoPlus is a little more powerful and larger, holding about double the amount of water, and can make three different sized drinks (espresso, coffee, and 14-ounce alto). The Inissia only weighs 5 pounds with a much smaller footprint and has two available coffee sizes.
Anova dominates the sales charts, but in many ways (raw heating power, looks, size, software quality), the Joule sous-vide circulator is actually the superior product, and Amazon’s running an unprecedented $30 discount on it for Black Friday
The Joule White is actually a new model of the Joule, swapping the original’s stainless steel top and base with white plastic to match the rest of the unit. Otherwise, it’s exactly the same as the Joule White/Stainless, and usually retails for $20 less at $179. Today’s Black Friday sale though is a great chance to save a bit more.
The steel version is also $30 off, but at $169, there’s really no reason to buy it over the white model, unless the white sells out.
The Anova circulator is on sale for $119, and it might be the right choice for you. I’d encourage you to read the Lifehacker showdown post to help decide.
If you don’t have any idea what I’m talking about or why you might want to buy this, Lifehacker has a great sous-vide explainer here. Spoiler alert: It’s incredibly simple, and the results are fantastic.
If you’ve consumed so much coffee in your life that you’re now desensitized to the caffeine (hi), Insomnia Coffee might be the
solution best option other than getting more sleep.
Insomnia claims to be the world’s strongest coffee blend, boasting 702mg of caffeine per 12 ounce cup. For comparison, a 12 ounce Red Bull has about 115mg, so...yeah, Insomnia probably isn’t super healthy. But hey, I’m not here to judge. You can get a pound of ground for $15, or whole bean for $14 right now on Amazon, the best prices we’ve ever seen.
WeMo products have long been the simplest way to get started with home automation, and both the light switch and mini smart plug are on sale for all-time low prices today. These are dead simple to use, and allow you to control any light fixture or power outlet with your phone, IFTTT recipes, or even Alexa.
It’s never been easier to outsource vacuuming to a robot, and with today’s Amazon Gold Box, it’s basically never been cheaper, either.
While they lack the brand recognition of Roombas, and we can’t personally vouch for them like we can for the Eufy RoboVac 11, these ECOVACS vacuums have solid reviews, and are insanely affordable.
The $140 Slim model is just over 2" tall, so it can fit under most furniture that you probably only move to clean under a couple of times per year. It also has Wi-Fi control, which is insane at that price.
For $10 more, you can get the M79, which is slightly bigger, slightly more powerful, and includes an extra cleaning mode.
For just $170, the DEEBOT M80 adds an optional wet mopping system for your hard floors, in addition to pulling standard vacuum duties.
This sale also comes with a special surprise: A window cleaning robot! Its utility will obviously vary depending on how your windows are set up in your house (generally speaking, these become more useful as your window panes get bigger, obviously), but it could be a worthwhile splurge.
Dremels make great gifts, because they can be many different things to many different people, and a whole bunch are on sale for Black Friday today. That includes everything from the Dremel pet nail grooming kit to a 30-piece variable speed starter kit to a damn butane torch, and everything in between. Be sure to head over to Amazon to see the complete list before these deals are ground away.
simplehuman makes our readers’ favorite trash cans, the only paper towel holders that don’t suck, next level shower caddies, and are just generally great at making beautiful and functional pieces for your home. The caveat is that they’re normally pretty expensive and very rarely do any kind of sale. But, today is one of those rare days! So check out the deals below the image above, or on this post. Most items are around 20% off their usual prices, and we likely won’t see a sale like this for a long time.
Make your holiday cocktails with better tools. A whole bunch of boozy OXO gear is on sale for Black Friday, including the innovative Press & Pour shaker.
Robotic vacuums have finally started to catch on in the mainstream, but mowing the lawn might actually be the more odious chore, especially when it’s hot out. Luckily, the Roomba for your yard exists, and it’s on sale right now for $649, an all-time low by about $100.
The Worx Landroid runs seven days per week to keep your lawn perfectly manicured at all times, and like a robotic vacuum, it can park itself back on its charging base whenever its battery runs low, or if it starts to rain. The biggest catch is that you’ll have to peg down or bury a guide wire along the perimeter of your lawn, which prevents Landroid from escaping into the wilderness of Ms. Jenkins’ backyard herb garden.
$649's still a lot of money, but it’s a small price to pay to reclaim your Saturday afternoons.
If your spring cleaning doesn’t involve revamping your home goods, what are you even doing? Add some awesome infographics to your walls with 25% off sitewide at Pop Chart Lab. Get everything from the Connected Characters of Seinfeld to every single bird in North America. Enter the code BFWEEKEND at checkout to see your discount.
And if you need an attractive and easy way to hang your new posters, the 25% also works on poster rails and map corners.
Everyone has fond memories of smelling the Yankee Candle store from halfway down the shopping mall’s hallways. It’s a rite of passage to attempt to walk by without getting a headache. But their candles really are great, and with this sale from Amazon, you can have those scents in your home for even less. Choose holiday or classic candle smells, including the bestselling Cedar & Balsam scent for just $12.
See all the candles included in the sale in this post.
In case you didn’t notice, we really like Chase’s Ultimate Rewards program. Back in 2015, Chase offered an incredible 10% back on Amazon purchases over the holidays- a promotion we’ve been longing for ever since that’s finally returned, with Best Buy and Walmart as the partner retailers this time.
Of course, you’ll need a Chase card to take advantage of this offer, but it doesn’t need to be a premium one. The high-end Chase Sapphire Reserve and the no-fee Freedom and Freedom Unlimited are all eligible. These are all must-own cards anyway, so if you don’t already have one, this deal is a great pot sweetener to stack with both your Black Friday/Cyber Monday savings and your sign-up bonuses.
Walmart’s half of the promotion runs through Dec. 14, with a max applicable spend of $325, while Best Buy’s goes all the way to Christmas Eve with a ceiling of $400. You can use Chase Pay to check out online to take advantage of the Walmart offer, but with Best Buy you’ll have to... go to a store.
You don’t need a yard, or even any gardening skills to grow your own food at home; you just need one of these countertop gardens. These fully-integrated, soil-free indoor gardens can grow herbs, vegetables, and salad greens up to five times faster than regular soil, and they’re all on sale for Black Friday.
First up, Click and Grow makes beautifully-design gardens that create the perfect environment that your plants need to thrive. With sensors that tell the Click and Grow when to turn the LED lights on, you simply fill the container with water once a month and the Click and Grow (and the plants themselves) does the rest of the work. They have two options on sale today, a 3-plant size garden for 40%, or $60, and a 9-plant size garden at 30% off or $140.
Amazon also has a countertop garden on sale, the AeroGarden Harvest. Very similar to the Click and Grows, you simply pop in the seed pods, some water, occasionally add nutrients, and it does the rest. This AeroGarden has accommodations for six plants so its a good middle ground between the two Click and Grows. It normally sells for $140 and is down to only $100 today.
The Click and Grow sale only lasts through the weekend and the AeroGarden can change in price at all time, so harvest these deals now. They make great gifts.
It’s FINALLY that time of year where it’s socially acceptable to have a Christmas tree up in your house. If you’re in the market for a new artificial one, Amazon is discounting a bunch of trees made by National Tree. These are top-of-the-line trees that look convincingly real and come in a variety of tree species. Most of these are at or very near their all-time low prices so get yourself one of these and go ahead and blast that Christmas music.
Alexa, ask Garmin to get me directions to a good deal.
The Garmin Speak lets you bring Alexa along for the ride in your car, and works as a unique, unobtrusive GPS device to boot. If you’ve been waiting on a deal to pick one up, it’s down to $100 for Black Friday, or $50 less than usual.
Black Friday’s here to brighten your day with an array of Philips Hue smart lighting deals.
In my opinion, the Hue White starter kit for $60 is a better way to get started than the more popular color bulbs. Most people won’t turn their living room various shades of blue, but everyone can benefit from regular light bulbs that you can control with your phone or your voice. This kit gets you four bulbs and a Bridge, which can support up to 50 Hue products.
If you really do want the classic Hue colorful bulbs, they’re on sale for $32 each, which is about as cheap as they ever get.
Hue can also accent your molding, or go under your kitchen cabinets with the Hue LightStrip Plus, which has never been this cheap before.
Keurigs and drip coffee makers are convenient, sure, but the coffee they produce can’t hold a candle to what you’ll get from these discounted gadgets.
First up, the legendary Aerobie Aeropress is down to $24, an extremely rare discount from its usual $30. Even at full price, it’s easily the cheapest and easiest way to make terrific coffee, and it would make a great gift for any coffee lover. It also has one of history’s all-time great product videos.
While you’re at it, we highly recommend picking up a reusable stainless steel filter to go with your new toy. It’s only $9, and it’ll pay for itself over time.
If, like me, you prefer the smoothness and concentration of cold brew, OXO’s Cold Brew maker is also $10 off today, down to $40. Just add coffee, add water, and walk away. You can read Shane’s review of it on Gear, and also see a video of how it works.
Cooking eggs isn’t exactly rocket science, but I’d say the ability to make soft, medium, and hard boiled eggs, plus omelettes and poached eggs at the touch of a button is worth $16. The Dash is Amazon’s top-selling egg cooker, and carries a stellar 4.5 star review average from nearly 4,500 customers, so get it while it’s on sale.
If you cook rice regularly, you can save $40 off the normal price of this highly-rated Zojirushi rice cooker. You may be thinking that $201 is still a big chunk of change for a rice cooker, but it’s not when you learn about how this machine uses fuzzy logic to cook your rice precisely and perfectly every time.
“Fuzzy logic” is a way of describing situations that cannot be described in absolutes: yes or no, true or false, white rice or brown. Fuzzy logic is used in automated technology that must sense and adjust for various factors, like mixing cement (depends on humidity) and changing traffic lights (depends on traffic). In rice cookers, fuzzy logic can take into account the type of grain, its age and hardness and its desired consistency. Frequent rice cooks who work with a variety of grains and have room on the countertop will not be disappointed by the performance of these machines.
This is a larger model that can cook up to 1 liter of rice at a time, has a killer 4.4-star rating, and has extended keep warm features to keep your rice perfect for hours.
Irwin’s GrooveLock pliers are exceptionally popular, and at $16 less than its usual $80, this 8-piece set would make a great gift.
Grabbing breakfast or lunch with coworkers can be a great way to break up the day, but more often than not you’ll just wallow in your own indecision before ordering a bad $17 sandwich.
Break the cycle with Soylent, a nutritionally complete meal replacement shake that now comes in six flavors (Coffiest is good!). Clip the coupon to save 35% off the 12-pack of your choice.
The original flavor also comes in powdered form now, which is also available with the aforementioned coupon.
So you want to try a standing desk, but you’re not ready to commit to it for eight hours a day...what do you do? You buy this Lorell monitor riser for as little as $136, an all-time low.
This riser arrives fully assembled, and just sits on top of your existing desk. Put your monitor(s) on the top shelf, your keyboard and mouse on the bottom, and use its integrated spring system to raise the entire setup from a sitting to standing position within seconds. You can also opt for the larger deluxe model for $227, which is also an all-time low. I own a very similar product from Varidesk (which was much more expensive, by the way), and I absolutely love it.
When compared to traditional blenders, stick blenders are 1,000x easier to clean. You can skip the blender work bowl and just place this stick blender in whatever container you were already using to make your sauce, smoothie, or whatever else needs to be pureed. That means less dishes, and more time to do whatever else you need to do.
This Cuisinart Smart Stick Blender is just $25 today, which is the lowest price its been since July.
Spend $50 on the stuff everyone needs, like laundry detergent, paper towels, and body wash, and Amazon will give you a $10 gift card. Free money.
Remember to add the gift card to your cart before you check out.
While not nearly as ubiquitous as Nest’s Learning Thermostats, Ecobee’s smart thermostats one-up the competition by pairing with wireless remote sensors that you can place elsewhere in your house, giving the thermostat a more accurate picture of your home’s overall temperature.
The new Ecobee4 is especially notable in that it doesn’t just work with Google Assistant and Alexa...it actually is a fully-featured Alexa device, just like an Echo Dot that lives on your wall. It’s rarely been discounted from its usual $250 since it launched earlier this year, but today on Amazon, you can get it (plus a remote sensor) for an all-time low $199.
There are seemingly dozens of internet mattress companies these days, but Eight Sleep sets itself apart by piling on smart features, and you can try out most of their mattresses for $100 off, plus a $100 bonus Amazon gift card.
The mattresses themselves are basically what you’ve come to expect from internet mattresses these days: They’re blocks built from multiple layers of different types of foam. With Eight Sleep though, you do get to pick from three different tiers, including one with innersprings that should be more breathable. Whichever mattress you choose, you’ll probably like it just fine, and if you don’t like it, Eight Sleep offers the industry standard 100 night trial period, so you can return it for any reason.
Eight Sleep’s real magic comes from its unique mattress cover, which has smart features built in that you’ll actually want to use. It can track your restfulness, heart rate, and other sleep stats independently for each side of the bed, wake you up with a smart alarm when you’re not deep in a REM cycle, and even integrate with other smart home appliances. So you could conceivably change your thermostat temperature automatically when you get into bed, and start brewing coffee whenever you’re about to wake up.
The best feature though, without question, is dual zone temperature control. Yes, the mattress pad doubles as a smartphone-connected electric blanket to warm each side of the bed independently, which may not seem appealing right now, but you’ll thank the stars for it come winter.
Spend your money where you spend your time: in bed. We’ve been sleeping through the gauntlet of Internet mattresses, and not only is Leesa’s three-layer mattress our reigning champ, but the free pillow you get as part of this deal is our new favorite pillow.
The discounted mattress and pillow bundle starts at $665 for a full with code BFCM2017. The pillow is normally $75. Note the split date range this is valid for: 11.18-11.24 and 11.27. 100-night trial as always.
This deal is even bigger if you’re in the market for Leesa’s hybrid (foam + springs) Sapira mattress: $250 off with the same code.
Dyson dominates the list of our readers’ favorite vacuums, and two of their most popular uprights are on sale on Amazon.
