Best Home DealsThe best home, kitchen, smart home, and automotive deals from around the web, updated daily.   

I suppose it was only a matter of time, but Amazon makes mattresses now. This model is sold under its Rivet furniture brand, and includes the same 100 night trial, three-layer foam construction, and slick marketing photos you’ve come to expect from all those other online mattress places.

If you’re in the market for a better night’s sleep, the Full, Queen, and King sizes are on sale for $90, $100, and $125 off their usual prices, respectively, with Prime shipping available.

Saturday's Best Deals: PlayStation Plus, Anki Toys, Power Tools, Sonos, and More

Best Deals of the DayThe best deals from around the web, updated daily.   

Early Black Friday deals on PlayStation Plus memberships, Amazon-branded mattresses, and a huge DEWALT power tool combo lead off Saturday’s best deals from around the web.

Best Tech Deals

We see deals on individual Aukey products with some regularity, but today in Amazon’s Gold Box, you can save on a whole bunch of their chargers, peripherals, and audio products.

Options include a $10 Bluetooth receiver, a wall charger with USB-C Power Delivery, a desktop surge protector that looks like a tiny trash can, a $14 gaming headset, a 1080p dash cam, and a lot more. Some of these would make great stocking stuffers, even if you own every gadget you could possibly need. But just remember that these deals are only available today, or until sold out.


The best all-around SSD for most people is down to $73 for 500GB, the best price ever. It’d obviously be a great upgrade over a spinning hard drive for your computer, but you could also stick it in a cheap enclosure to create your own, super-fast external drive.


There will be no shortage of sexy surround sound and Dolby Atmos sound bar deals this Black Friday, but if you’re happy with a really good 2.1 system, or need a sound system for, say, a bedroom TV, this 36″ Vizio for $98 is the way to go. That’s $50 less than usual, and it includes a wireless subwoofer.


While we’re expecting to see a $50 discount on the newer, smaller Sonos Beam sound bar next week, if you want the richer and fuller sound stage of the old Sonos Playbar, Amazon is currently tossing in a free $50 gift card and a wall mount today. We haven’t seen any advertised Playbar Black Friday deals, so I think this as good an offer as you’re going to see this holiday season.


If you’re like us, you have a long list of items you hope to get on Black Friday. Like, spreadsheets and phone alarms might be involved. But if snagging a Fire HD 10 Tablet is one of your goals, you can go ahead and check that box today, because it’s already at its Black Friday price of $100. It’s almost like Amazon knows you so well that it could predict what you wanted to buy and decided to make it easier for you. Almost.


Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Kids, having been in the car for less than 5 minutes, complain that they’re bored. They declare that they cannot survive without an electronic devices before their faces. On a normal day, you could tell them to deal with it and experience life in the real world for a while, but special occasions like road trips might call for some degree of acquiescence.

Lucky for you, the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Tablet has already hit its Black Friday price for $150, so you can have it on hand for Thanksgiving travel. Need two? That’s an even better deal, at $250. And you can choose from three colors of kid-proof cases, so there’s never any fighting which tablet belongs to who. If you’re looking to assuage your guilt about using a digital babysitter, you could say these are a good lesson about responsibility. Oh, you didn’t charge your tablet last night, and now the battery is dead? Guess it’s time for I Spy.

Worth noting: The 7″ and 8″ versions are also discounted, and all come with a 2-year “no questions asked” warranty. Just, you know, in case.


I can’t for the life of me figure out why records are making a comeback, but our Co-Op for best album to own on vinyl was one of our most popular polls ever, so I guess I’m duty-bound to report that we’ve spotted three great deals on turntables today.

This highly-rated Audio-Technica doesn’t have any built-in speakers, but it outputs audio over Bluetooth to any other device. It can even store eight of them in memory for quick connections. $120 is as low is it’s ever gone.

And finally, this high-end Audio Technica is more of a professional tool. It doesn’t have Bluetooth or built-in speakers, but it can output audio over USB to your computer, allowing you to digitize your favorite LPs. $229 isn’t an all-time low, but it is $70 less than usual.


Dell’s Walmart-exclusive gaming laptop deals aren’t going to play your games at the highest possible settings, but they offer a clean look and solid values. Both include a 1TB HDD augmented with a 16GB Intel Optane SSD, 8GB of RAM, and a 15.6″ 1080p display. The difference is that the $649 model has a Core i5 processor and a GTX 1050, while the $749 bumps you up to a Core i7 and a 1050 TI. At $100, that’s probably a no-brainer.


PopUp Grips | $1 Each | PopUps Direct
Graphic: Elizabeth Zimmerman

Are you clumsy enough to star in an infomercial? Can you really not afford to crack yet another phone screen? Then perhaps you should check out PopUps Direct, where you can buy up to 10 PopUp Grips for $1 apiece. They won’t magically glue your phone to your hand or anything, but they will give you slightly more secure grip, which is better than nothing. The range of designs even allows you to rep your favorite animal or hobby, which is more than we can say for any gripless phone back. Trust, you’ll be wishing you had bought a couple the next time your phone eats pavement.


For just $19 today, you can grab Anker’s SoundBuds Surge lightweight Bluetooth headphones, a close relative of the SoundBuds Slim, which won our affordable Bluetooth headphone Co-Op. With magnetic connectors on the earpieces and a water-resistant coating, these would be a great addition to your gym bag or suitcase, even if you already have another set of earbuds.


Given how many Lightning cables seem to wear out at the necks, it’s surprising that 90 degree cables aren’t more of a thing. You can grab two nylon braided cables for $13 from Aukey today with promo code AUKEY04AL, which would be a great price for two nylon-braided Lightning cables anyway, even without the unique connector.


LG’s OLED TVs have achieved something of a cult status thanks to their ridiculously dark black levels and vibrant colors. If you were waiting for Black Friday to snag yours, the discounted price on the 55″ C8 model is already live.

The picture quality got an upgrade over last year’s model thanks to a new processor that improves color accuracy, reduces artifacts, and supports HFR (high frame rate video) up to 120 FPS. HFR content doesn’t really exist yet, but a few movies are expected to come to streaming services starting later this year, so if you’re planning on using the TV for several years, it might be worth it for future-proofing purposes.

Advertisement

We’ve seen cheaper deals on the lower-end B8 model, but that one uses last year’s processor, meaning it can do HFR or HDR, but not both at the same time like the C8.


If you’ve had your eye on Samsung’s 8000-series TVs, which are the company’s best non-QLED sets this year, their Black Friday discounts are already live. Every size (55″, 65″, 75″, and 82″) includes Samsung’s new Dynamic Crystal Color engine and HDR10/ HDR10+ support, plus some nice quality of life features, like the Bixby voice assistant, and a quad core processor for speedy smart app operation.

These prices are the same that we’ve seen in Black Friday ads, and we have no reason to expect them to go any lower. So buy now, and you’ll be set up in time for Thanksgiving football.


VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Advertisement

Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

Best Home Deals

I suppose it was only a matter of time, but Amazon makes mattresses now. This model is sold under its Rivet furniture brand, and includes the same 100 night trial, three-layer foam construction, and slick marketing photos you’ve come to expect from all those other online mattress places.

If you’re in the market for a better night’s sleep, the Full, Queen, and King sizes are on sale for $90, $100, and $125 off their usual prices, respectively, with Prime shipping available.


Netgear’s Arlo home security cameras are among the few that can run completely on battery power, and the newer Pro models add additional touches like rechargeable batteries (rather than watch batteries), improved motion detection, two-way intercom, and a base station with 100 decibel alarm. So if you’re ready to start monitoring your home like a paranoid person, Walmart will sell you the two camera starter kit for $239 today, an all-time low.


With this one-day Amazon sale on Kershaw Blur knives, you can be one of those people that’s randomly carrying a knife whenever something needs cutting. Those people are respected by all.

Advertisement

Choose from multiple colors, and both straight and serrated blades, all for an all-time low $35. These would make great stocking stuffers too, just be sure they’re closed before you put them inside a stocking.

If you want to go all out, you can pay $20 more for one with stronger S30V steel. That one rarely sells for under $70.


This OXO spiralizer can cut your favorite fruits and vegetables into versatile stings and strands, and includes three different blades, and even suction cups on the bottom to keep it locked to your counter. Today’s $24 price tag is $16 less than usual, making it the perfect gift for the home chef who has everything.


Cordless hand vacs are handy for cleaning the nooks and crannies of your house, but they’re especially great for vacuuming out your car. This 16 volt model from Black & Decker is just $42 today on Amazon, the best price we’ve seen all year.


This DEWALT five-tool cordless combo kit would be the ultimate holiday gift for any home improvement enthusiast, and its $349 Black Friday price is a full $50 less than the previous all-time low on Amazon.

Advertisement

That’s a decent chunk of change, but it’s got everything you need to cosplay as a Property Brother, including a hammer drill, a reciprocating saw, a circular saw, an impact driver, a work light, and two batteries that you can share between all the tools.


The GiR Get It Right spatula just won our Best Spatula Co-Op, and now you can grab the mini flipper model for $12, in a variety of colors. For some colors like gray, that’s the best price ever, but it’s generally within a dollar of an all-time low, so this is a deal worth flipping out over.

If you’ve ever had a plastic flipper that melted on the edge, this is the antidote. The seamless silicone exterior is heat resistant up to 550 degrees, and the fiberglass core resists heat better than the metal cores in most competitors.


Your out-of-town family members are probably not looking forward to nights of tossing and turning on your lumpy sofa when they come to visit this holiday season. Instead of banishing them to the couch, do everyone a favor, and get this $43 queen-sized airbed. It’s 22 inches off the ground, so they won’t feel like they’re sleeping on the floor, and it features a built-in electric pump for easy inflation. Plus, your guests will have nothing but glowing reviews of your hosting skills to share with the rest of your relatives at the Thanksgiving dinner table, so it’s really a win-win.


The Roomba 960 is a bit extravagant, but at over $100 off, it might be worth considering if less expensive robotic vacuums haven’t checked all of your boxes.

Advertisement

The key feature here is an onboard camera that allows the Roomba to build a constantly-updating map of your home, which means it can clean every square foot without wasting an hour ping ponging around the same room. Of course, you’ll also get Wi-Fi for app control, and a more powerful cleaning system than the entry level models.

Today’s $450 price tag is an all-time low, and in fact, it’s $50 lower than listings we’ve seen in Black Friday ad scans, so there’s really no reason to wait.


Even if you don’t do much DIY work, you should probably have a screwdriver extension shaft in your toolbox. These let you access awkwardly placed screws that regular screwdrivers can’t reach, and this $8 one (with promo code 2LE7VHC4) even comes with a full set of bits.


Of the seemingly dozens of private label brands Amazon has launched this year, Solimo is probably the broadest. Encompassing everything from gummy vitamins to shampoo to coffee pods to razors, it aims to be your everything when it comes to home essentials.

Advertisement

For a limited time, Amazon’s offering discounts on dozens of different items, including their ultra-popular melatonin gummies, a big bottle olive oil, food storage bags, and a lot more. Like I said, it’s a really broad brand.

Some of the deals are straight discounts (usually 20%, as far as I can tell), and some require you to clip an on-page coupon. Some deals combine both, so you can stack the savings.


If there’s a day that will make you take a long, hard look at your current appliance situation, it’s Thanksgiving. Is your oven capacity adequate for everything you need to cook? Do you have enough fridge space for all the leftovers? Can your dishwasher handle the massive flood of plates and utensils coming its way?

Advertisement

The more questions you answered “no” to, the more you’ll save during Home Depot’s appliance sale, where buying two appliances will net you $60 off, but a purchase of six or more will save a whopping $500. That means you can upgrade your entire suite at once! (If you need help finding a sixth appliance to add, wine coolers totally qualify.)

Note that some exclusions apply, but many items are already legit deals at Special Buy prices.


Gerber’s suspension multi-plier features 12 tools in one package, meaning you’re spending less than $2 per function today. If you don’t already own one, you should take this opportunity to rectify that. If you do, buy some more to give away as holiday gifts.


Before we go any further, let’s get this out of the way: Please don’t burn your house down. Alton Brown can show you the way to fry a turkey safely, and it’s so worth the extra work to not eat your Thanksgiving meal to the dulcet tones of firetruck sirens.

Advertisement

Now, why do you need this 30-Quart Turkey Fryer? Because frying has been the trendiest way to cook your holiday turkey for as long as there have been culinary trends. Because for $40, it’s a smart investment. Because it’s what William Shatner would want for you. (And if you’re not sure how to fry a turkey? There’s an app for that.)


Free bacon. Forever. Do I have your attention?

Butcher Box ships grass fed beef, heritage grade pork, and free range chicken right to your door for less than $6 per serving, and if you sign up with our exclusive link, you’ll get $10 off your first box, plus a FREE pack of uncured bacon in every box for the life of your subscription. Think of all you could do with an extra pack of bacon every month.

Your reader-exclusive bonuses come bundled with any of Butcher Box’s pre-selected boxes, which are priced at $129 for 24 servings, or $238 for 48 servings, which can be delivered every 30 or 60 days. For a nominal surcharge, you can also build a completely custom box, with your choices of proteins.

Note: You’ll have to enter your email at the beginning of the process. I know, it’s annoying.

Best Clothing & Lifestyle Deals

If you don’t know about Dallas-based Breda, it’s time to change that. The watch brand creates minimalist, easy-to-wear styles of watches that aren’t overworked or over priced. And we’ve got an exclusive discount this Black Friday: use the code KINJABF35 and grab any full-priced watch for 35% off. That beats the standard 30% discount that everyone else gets.

Advertisement

It should go without saying that these look better than any smart watch, and even if your wrist is already spoken for, these would make thoughtful gifts for any watch collectors on your list.


Thousands of our readers have bought Bowflex’s adjustable SelectTech dumbbells, and you can put them in your own home gym today for $249.

Advertisement

That’s a decent chunk of change, but they barely take up any space, each dumbbell can go up to 52.5 pounds (apologies to your delivery driver) and make it more likely that you’ll work out this winter when it’s too cold to go to the gym. They’ve been cheaper before, most notably last April, when Amazon and Walmart got into a bizarre automated price war, but this is still the best price we’ve seen since February.


It’s only November, but snow has already blanketed much of the Northeast. Good thing Columbia is taking 40% off select gear for men, women, and kids. A whole lot of outerwear is up for grabs, and with winter arriving so early this year, you can bet the whole family could use a new vest, puffer, fleece, etc. But don’t wait to stock up; this sale only lasts until November 21, unlike the cold weather, unfortunately.


Looking to bag a new bag this season? Coach is taking 30% off select full-priced items for both men and women with promo code THANKS18. The sale event includes a variety of trendy handbags, backpacks, and wallets, not to mention a few key chains, belts, and even some shoes, all of which would make for a classy holiday gift. Just don’t forget a present for yourself for being such a good gift-giver.


Ultimate boho brand Free People’s effortlessly cool, vintage-y styles don’t come without some heavy lifting on the part of your wallet. But today, flower children should head over to Nordstrom Rack, where Free People clothing, shoes, and lingerie are marked way down. Move quickly, since free spirits will likely buy up this stock faster than you can say, Coachella weekend 1 passes with car camping included.


Cole Haan makes some seriously great shoes, but the price tags can often make you turn your heels. So when they kick off their Black Friday (ahem, Grand Giving) sale, it’s the perfect time to act.

Advertisement

For a limited time, you get 30% off sitewide, including shoes, apparel, and yes, even already-discounted sale items. Their Semi-Annual sales are also 30%, but are only valid on full-price items, so you can step into some huge bargains if you play your cards right.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t recommend you check out their 2.ZERØGRANDs, as well as the sweater-like ZERØGRANDs with Stitchlite wool, which I just wrote about on The Inventory recently.


It’s not a race, but you should definitely hurry over to Adidas to take advantage of an extra 30% off their already heavily discounted sale section. Use promo code NOVSALE to snag this deal on everything from sneakers to athletic apparel, and feel like you scored a gold medal.


Everybody keeps saying winter is coming, but IMO, it feels like winter is already here. And you know what that means: It’s finally cold enough to break out your cute sweaters and coats. Is your wardrobe lacking in that department? No prob, there’s a sale on Lark & Ro sweaters and outerwear at Amazon, with pieces starting at just $23. It includes everything from slouchy cardigans for lounging around to puffer coats for outdoor adventures, so you’re pretty much guaranteed to find something you want.


There is a light at the end of the seemingly never-ending skincare tunnel, literally. The Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask is a breakout-clearing marvel (and one of our favorite collagen-boosters), and now, it’s available on Amazon for just $21. The mask covers your entire mug, and delivers powerful targeted blue light, effectively zapping acne-causing bacteria, and red light, which reduces inflammation. The whole treatment is gentle enough for daily use, and it’s safe for those who are prone to irritation. Plus, it sort of makes you look like Iron Man.


If you’re planning your next outdoor adventure, or just need a gift idea for the most adventurous person in your life, Backcountry is here to help. For a limited time, take 20% off any full-priced item with the code TAKE20NOVEMBER.

If you need any inspiration, check out our reader polls for puffer jackets, raincoats, and socks; many of the finalists and winners are eligible for the sale.


Amazon seemed to go from having zero private label fashion brands to having one for every conceivable style of clothing seemingly overnight, and today, it’s Buttoned Down that’s getting the spotlight.

Advertisement

As you’ve probably guessed, Buttoned Down is a menswear brand that offers button down men’s shirts, as well as pants, ties, and even socks to complete the worker drone look. None of it is exciting, but these sorts of clothes are the backbone of most men’s wardrobe, so it’s nice to have a new, affordable option.

For a limited time, a bunch of Buttoned Downs wares are on sale for about 20%-50% off, including lots of non-iron dress and business casual shirts for under $30 (or even under $20, if you can abide by discontinued patterns), and pants under $50. There are tons of fits and styles available, so surely you can find a few affordable basics that your closet currently lacks.


Update: This sale is still going strong, but REI just posted a new set of “Peak Deals,” which are discounted up to 50%, but have very limited quantities. Check those out first, then dive into the rest of the sale.

Advertisement

REI famously opts out(side) of Black Friday, but instead runs one of their biggest sales of the year leading up to Thanksgiving. It’s a distinction without a difference, and it’s live now.

As part of their Gear Up Get Out sale, the outdoor superstore is offering up to 30% off on select gear and clothing — including all their best stuff. Our readers’ favorite men’s socks, puffy jackets, and raincoats are just a few of the great clothing buys currently up for grabs. In terms of tech, there’s a $60 gift card available with the latest GoPro, which is the same deal we’re expecting elsewhere on Black Friday.

Don’t wait too long to bring in your haul. Everything from apparel to outdoor adventurers’ must-haves are sure to go quick, and by November19, this sale will be off into the wild blue yonder.


You know Indochino for their reader-favorite custom suits, but they also make really nice blazers and chinos, and both are on sale already for Black Friday.

All blazers (including, somewhat inexplicably, dinner jackets) are $219 with promo code BLKFRI, and the chinos come in at two pairs for $129 with the same BLKFRI code (normally $79 each). The best part? You still get to go through Indochino’s famous customization process, and pick your preferences for everything from pocket angles to hem designs to jacket liners.


Clear out some closet space: Nordstrom ushering in Black Friday with a totally separate, but still very good Fall Sale. The department store is taking up to 40% off an expansive range of items for both men and women, including regular and designer apparel, shoes, accessories, cosmetics, and home goods. But don’t waste any time; just like leaves in winter, this sale will be gone by November 18.


Winter is all about layers on layers on layers — and Patagonia has vests, puffers, pullovers, and zip-ups galore, all of which are great for wearing alone on warmer days or all at once when it’s an arctic tundra outside. Right now, the winterwear purveyors are taking up to 50% off their Web Specials section until November 21. So it would behoove you to pile everything you can into your cart ASAP, so you can pile everything onto yourself in the cold months to come.

Best Media Deals


At $8 per month for Prime members, Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot for new members by offering four months for free, if you have an Amazon Echo device tied to your account.

Advertisement

http://gizmodo.com/amazon-comes-for-spotify-with-cheaper-music-subscriptio-1787680138

This is the best deal they’ve ever offered on the service, and it’s even available to non-Prime members. If you have an Echo and you’ve never been a Music Unlimited subscriber, there’s no reason not to sign up.


Love to read but don’t have the time to sit down and actually read a book? Sign up for Amazon’s audiobook service, Audible, during this extended trial offer for Prime members.

Advertisement

For a limited time, Prime members can get three months of the service for free, rather than the typical one-month trial. That entitles you to a new book of your choice each month, plus two free Audible originals of your choice. Plus, every book you choose is yours to keep, even if you cancel. The offer is available to new subscribers only.

Note: After the three month trial ends, you’ll automatically be charged $15 per month, so be sure to cancel if you don’t like it.

Best Gaming Deals

We thought the days of $40 PlayStation Plus sales were behind us, but lo, here it is once again for Black Friday. If your membership is due to expire soon, or hell, even if it isn’t, you’ll want to take advantage of this. This is as good a price as you’re ever likely to see, so if you own a PlayStation, or are planning to get one this holiday season, this is a no-brainer.

Note: You can add as many 12 month codes to your PlayStation account as you want. They just extend your membership expiration date.


Anki’s highly advanced toys are so much fun, you’ll forget everything you learned about sharing, and they’re marked down to prices lower than we were expecting on Black Friday in today’s Gold Box.

Advertisement

Of course, we have to start with Anki Overdrive (and its Fast & Furious variant), which is basically the love child of slot cars and Mario Kart. You build your track in whatever arrangement you’d like, and use your smartphone to control the cars, fire weapons, and win the race. $98 is the best price we’ve ever seen on either set.

Also on sale are Anki’s educational coding robots, Cozmo and Vector. You can program either one to perform tasks and respond to commands, though the Vector is the smart of the two thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, the ability to self-charge, and forthcoming Alexa support. We were expecting to see Cozmo for $140 on Black Friday and Vector for $200, but today only, they’re just $126 and $175, respectively.

Bonus: If you buy any of these, you can add a Mickie or Minnie plush to your cart for just $5 extra (discount shown at checkout).


Congrats in advance for having the most popular house in the neighborhood; you’ll never get little Jimmy to leave. This 95′ zipline kit is down to $123 in today’s Amazon Gold Box, down from the usual ~$190. And before you ask, yes, it can hold up to 250 pounds, so adults can ride it too.


Finally getting your hands on Red Dead Redemption 2 is good, but you know what’s even better? Finally getting your hands on Red Dead Redemption 2 AND getting a $10 Xbox One gift card to spend on something else. It’s one of the best Red Dead deals in all the Wild West, and you can take advantage of it right now at Walmart for $60.

Advertisement

Not to mention, you can stack this deal on yet another Walmart deal. Use promo code ELLEN10 to save an additional $10 on any $35 Walmart.com purchase (new customers only). There’s definitely room enough in this town for the both of these deals.


If you’re in the market for a solid mid-range gaming headset on a budget, the Logitech G430 is down to $30 today, the best price we’ve ever seen.

Advertisement

The G430 works with PS4s and PCs, and its 7.1 surround sound makes a big difference in games like Fortnite and PUBG, because they let you hear which direction people are coming from while you hide in a bathtub.


Are you feeling the Christmas cash crunch yet? Wondering how Santa’s going to make a decent showing without putting you in the poorhouse? Amazon understands. When you spend $100 on a range of toys that covers everything from My Little Pony to Marvel to Hot Wheels to NERF, you’ll get $20 off at checkout. That kind of savings would make even the Grinch feel a little holly jolly, and if you can’t make a dent in your shopping list with this selection, you’re not even trying.

Advertisement

Note: The promotion is limited to toys shipped and sold by Amazon (no third-party nonsense!).


Always a surefire holiday hit, LEGO’s Star Wars Advent calendar features 24 tiny Star Wars-themed LEGO gifts, including brand new ones for 2018 like a snowman in a Rebellion helmet, a Rose minifig, and tons of miniaturized spaceships and speeders. It MSRPs for $40, but Amazon’s got it marked down to under $34 right now. You can start opening it in just a few short weeks, and it might not get cheaper before then.

If you’re like us, you have a long list of items you hope to get on Black Friday. Like, spreadsheets and phone alarms might be involved. But if snagging a Fire HD 10 Tablet is one of your goals, you can go ahead and check that box today, because it’s already at its Black Friday price of $100. It’s almost like Amazon knows you so well that it could predict what you wanted to buy and decided to make it easier for you. Almost.


Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Kids, having been in the car for less than 5 minutes, complain that they’re bored. They declare that they cannot survive without an electronic devices before their faces. On a normal day, you could tell them to deal with it and experience life in the real world for a while, but special occasions like road trips might call for some degree of acquiescence.

Lucky for you, the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Tablet has already hit its Black Friday price for $150, so you can have it on hand for Thanksgiving travel. Need two? That’s an even better deal, at $250. And you can choose from three colors of kid-proof cases, so there’s never any fighting which tablet belongs to who. If you’re looking to assuage your guilt about using a digital babysitter, you could say these are a good lesson about responsibility. Oh, you didn’t charge your tablet last night, and now the battery is dead? Guess it’s time for I Spy.

Worth noting: The 7″ and 8″ versions are also discounted, and all come with a 2-year “no questions asked” warranty. Just, you know, in case.


Three Echo Dots | $70 | Amazon | Add three to cart, discount shown at checkout
Two Echo Spots | $160 | Amazon | Add two to cart, discount shown at checkout
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Spoiler alert! Amazon Echo devices are going to be on sale for Black Friday next week. That much is obvious, but what you might not realize is that you can actually get a better deal right now by buying in bulk.

Advertisement

If you add three of the new Echo Dots to your cart, you’ll get them all for $70, slightly less than the $24/each price that we’re expecting on Black Friday. Obviously, this only makes sense if you want to buy three to spread around your home, or to give away as gifts, but it’s still a great deal.

Even more tempting is getting $100 off when you buy two Echo Spots (discount shown in cart), possibly the greatest alarm clock ever made. These will be $40 off individually on Black Friday, so the two-pack deal is better by a fairly substantial margin.


At its usual $500, Vizio’s 5.1.2 channel sound bar was already one of the cheapest and easiest ways to experience Dolby Atmos audio, which adds a height dimension to traditional surround sound. But this is Black Friday season, so today, you can buy it for $300 instead.

The 36″ sound bar includes three forward-facing drivers, plus two upward-facing drivers for the Atmos dimension. The kit also includes a wireless subwoofer, and two satellite speakers that plug into said subwoofer to act as your rear channels. That setup means that you can run the wires under or behind your couch, since you won’t have to plug anything into the sound bar itself at the front of the room.


I can’t for the life of me figure out why records are making a comeback, but our Co-Op for best album to own on vinyl was one of our most popular polls ever, so I guess I’m duty-bound to report that we’ve spotted three great deals on turntables today.

This one looks like a suitcase, and has built-in speakers. It also works as a Bluetooth speaker for your phone, but oddly enough, can’t output vinyl audio to other Bluetooth speakers; you’ll have to use a cable for that. $70 is the best price Amazon’s ever listed.

This highly-rated Audio-Technica doesn’t have any built-in speakers, but it outputs audio over Bluetooth to any other device. It can even store eight of them in memory for quick connections. $120 is as low is it’s ever gone.

And finally, this high-end Audio Technica is more of a professional tool. It doesn’t have Bluetooth or built-in speakers, but it can output audio over USB to your computer, allowing you to digitize your favorite LPs. $229 isn’t an all-time low, but it is $70 less than usual.


Dell’s Walmart-exclusive gaming laptop deals aren’t going to play your games at the highest possible settings, but they offer a clean look and solid values. Both include a 1TB HDD augmented with a 16GB Intel Optane SSD, 8GB of RAM, and a 15.6″ 1080p display. The difference is that the $599 model has a Core i5 processor and a GTX 1050, while the $749 bumps you up to a Core i7 and a 1050 TI. At $100, that’s probably a no-brainer.


PopUp Grips | $1 Each | PopUps Direct
Graphic: Elizabeth Zimmerman

Are you clumsy enough to star in an infomercial? Can you really not afford to crack yet another phone screen? Then perhaps you should check out PopUps Direct, where you can buy up to 10 PopUp Grips for $1 apiece. They won’t magically glue your phone to your hand or anything, but they will give you slightly more secure grip, which is better than nothing. The range of designs even allows you to rep your favorite animal or hobby, which is more than we can say for any gripless phone back. Trust, you’ll be wishing you had bought a couple the next time your phone eats pavement.


For just $19 today, you can grab Anker’s SoundBuds Surge lightweight Bluetooth headphones, a close relative of the SoundBuds Slim, which won our affordable Bluetooth headphone Co-Op. With magnetic connectors on the earpieces and a water-resistant coating, these would be a great addition to your gym bag or suitcase, even if you already have another set of earbuds.


Given how many Lightning cables seem to wear out at the necks, it’s surprising that 90 degree cables aren’t more of a thing. You can grab two nylon braided cables for $13 from Aukey today with promo code AUKEY04AL, which would be a great price for two nylon-braided Lightning cables anyway, even without the unique connector.


LG’s OLED TVs have achieved something of a cult status thanks to their ridiculously dark black levels and vibrant colors. If you were waiting for Black Friday to snag yours, the discounted price on the 55″ C8 model is already live.

The picture quality got an upgrade over last year’s model thanks to a new processor that improves color accuracy, reduces artifacts, and supports HFR (high frame rate video) up to 120 FPS. HFR content doesn’t really exist yet, but a few movies are expected to come to streaming services starting later this year, so if you’re planning on using the TV for several years, it might be worth it for future-proofing purposes.

We’ve seen cheaper deals on the lower-end B8 model, but that one uses last year’s processor, meaning it can do HFR or HDR, but not both at the same time like the C8.


Whether your current mouse is giving you chronic wrist pain, or you just want to try something different, this 4-star rated wireless ergonomic vertical mouse from Anker is only $13 today with promo code ANKE7809. In addition to the clever design, it even comes with three adjustable DPI settings and forward/back buttons, which are pretty rare at this price level.


RAVPower’s HyperAir Qi charging pad is one of the few models out there to support the fastest-possible 7.5W iPhone charging, and you can get it for just $20 today with promo code KINJA889.

Advertisement

To be clear, there are a lot of Qi pads that support 10W charging for certain Android devices, but iPhones require a very specific frequency to enable their maximum charging speed of 7.5W, and this is one of the most affordable compatible pads we’ve seen, and the cheapest we’ve seen with the necessary Quick Charge 3.0 power adapter included. It’s normally priced at $30; today’s $22 list price itself is an aberration, but still, don’t forget the code!


If you’ve had your eye on Samsung’s 8000-series TVs, which are the company’s best non-QLED sets this year, their Black Friday discounts are already live. Every size (55″, 65″, 75″, and 82″) includes Samsung’s new Dynamic Crystal Color engine and HDR10/ HDR10+ support, plus some nice quality of life features, like the Bixby voice assistant, and a quad core processor for speedy smart app operation.

Advertisement

These prices are the same that we’ve seen in Black Friday ads, and we have no reason to expect them to go any lower. So buy now, and you’ll be set up in time for Thanksgiving football.


VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Advertisement

Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

Best Home Deals

Thermapen Classic | $59 | ThermoWorks | Red, yellow, and green only
Graphic: Thermoworks

When it comes to measuring food temperature, ThermoWorks, and specifically its Thermapen, has the market pegged. The Classic model has a rare discount down to $59 right now, the best price we’ve ever seen, so grab one for yourself, and a few more as holiday gifts.

There is a newer model of this available, which includes a rotating, backlit display, longer battery life, and better water resistance, but the actual nuts-and-bolts temperature measurement is exactly the same. Just note that the deal is only available on the red, yellow, and green models.


Wayfair’s Black Friday sale is here, and it is massive. You can save big on a laundry list of home decor items like wall art, area rugs, sheets & comforters, sofas, mattresses, dining room furniture, and more.

Advertisement

There’s so many items to look through, so make some time in your schedule. If you’re needing some place to start, I like this mid-century modern coffee table, wild flower center piece, and industrial-style platform bed.

This sale ends Sunday at midnight, so head on over to Wayfair to see it all for yourself. Let us know about your favorite finds in the comment section!


The Claw | $15 | Malboro & Kane | Promo code KINJADEALS
GIF: The Claw

The Claw claims to be the world’s smallest multitool, and there’s really no reason to doubt it. Roughly the same length as a penny, the little piece of titanium can open bottles and paint cans, turn screws, wedge open key rings, remove staples, and most critically of all, open up boxes that you ordered from Kinja Deals. Get it for $15 today (down from $22) with our exclusive promo code KINJADEALS.


The Shark Navigator Lift-Away is your favorite affordable vacuum cleaner, but it’s the step-up Professional model that’s on sale today for $139. Compared to the standard Lift-Away, the Professional includes a longer power cord and a microfiber dusting attachment, and it can still lift off the wheeled base for easier cleaning of furniture, cars, staircases, and other awkward areas.


The GiR Get It Right spatula just won our Best Spatula Co-Op, and now you can grab the mini flipper model for $12, in a variety of colors. For some colors like gray, that’s the best price ever, but it’s generally within a dollar of an all-time low, so this is a deal worth flipping out over.

If you’ve ever had a plastic flipper that melted on the edge, this is the antidote. The seamless silicone exterior is heat resistant up to 550 degrees, and the fiberglass core resists heat better than the metal cores in most competitors.


In terms of pod-style coffee makers, nothing beats Nepresso. This Nepresso VertuoPlus makes espresso and coffee drinks, and only takes up a small amount space, making it perfect for smaller kitchens and dorm rooms. $120 gets you the machine with a 40 oz swivel-out water tank, some complimentary pods to try, and a bonus milk frother. The bundle typically sells for $170 or more, so at $120, it’s an eye-opening deal.


Your out-of-town family members are probably not looking forward to nights of tossing and turning on your lumpy sofa when they come to visit this holiday season. Instead of banishing them to the couch, do everyone a favor, and get this $43 queen-sized airbed. It’s 22 inches off the ground, so they won’t feel like they’re sleeping on the floor, and it features a built-in electric pump for easy inflation. Plus, your guests will have nothing but glowing reviews of your hosting skills to share with the rest of your relatives at the Thanksgiving dinner table, so it’s really a win-win.


The Roomba 960 is a bit extravagant, but at over $100 off, it might be worth considering if less expensive robotic vacuums haven’t checked all of your boxes.

Advertisement

The key feature here is an onboard camera that allows the Roomba to build a constantly-updating map of your home, which means it can clean every square foot without wasting an hour ping ponging around the same room. Of course, you’ll also get Wi-Fi for app control, and a more powerful cleaning system than the entry level models.

Today’s $450 price tag is an all-time low, and in fact, it’s $50 lower than listings we’ve seen in Black Friday ad scans, so there’s really no reason to wait.


No matter where you stand on the eternal debate over the appropriate day to put up holiday decorations, we can all agree it’s time to at least start thinking about them. Amazon’s holiday decor Gold Box is here to help the decoration procrastinators and the November 1 decorators alike. Pick up everything from faux trees, to new ornaments, to various Christmas-y tchotchkes, not to mention a flood of intangible holiday spirit.


Even if you don’t do much DIY work, you should probably have a screwdriver extension shaft in your toolbox. These let you access awkwardly placed screws that regular screwdrivers can’t reach, and this $8 one (with promo code 2LE7VHC4) even comes with a full set of bits.


There’s an old joke that NASA spent millions developing a pen that could write in space, and the Russians used a pencil. Whatever, it was totally worth it. MassDrop’s selling two-packs of the official Fisher Space Pens for $32 right now, so you too can write in zero gravity, in sub-zero temperatures, or even under water.

Multiple finishes are available at checkout, some of which have a surcharge associated. If you want a brass one, Amazon also has them on sale for $16 each.


Of the seemingly dozens of private label brands Amazon has launched this year, Solimo is probably the broadest. Encompassing everything from gummy vitamins to shampoo to coffee pods to razors, it aims to be your everything when it comes to home essentials.

Advertisement

For a limited time, Amazon’s offering discounts on dozens of different items, including their ultra-popular melatonin gummies, a big bottle olive oil, food storage bags, and a lot more. Like I said, it’s a really broad brand.

Some of the deals are straight discounts (usually 20%, as far as I can tell), and some require you to clip an on-page coupon. Some deals combine both, so you can stack the savings.


If there’s a day that will make you take a long, hard look at your current appliance situation, it’s Thanksgiving. Is your oven capacity adequate for everything you need to cook? Do you have enough fridge space for all the leftovers? Can your dishwasher handle the massive flood of plates and utensils coming its way?

Advertisement

The more questions you answered “no” to, the more you’ll save during Home Depot’s appliance sale, where buying two appliances will net you $60 off, but a purchase of six or more will save a whopping $500. That means you can upgrade your entire suite at once! (If you need help finding a sixth appliance to add, wine coolers totally qualify.)

Note that some exclusions apply, but many items are already legit deals at Special Buy prices.


These Herschel Supply Co bags would normally set you back around $80, but select colors are marked down to around $54 today, so you can pack for your next weekend getaway for less.

Advertisement

Your discounted choices are navy ($56) and black ($52) both of which include gorgeous brown leather handles. If previous deals are any indication, these prices might not last long, so head over to Amazon if you need a new bag for any upcoming holiday travel.


The computers in your car constantly spit out useful data, and you can make sense of it with this OBD2 scanner from NEXPEAK, which is $25 off today when you use promo code NEUSZW29.

Advertisement

At $44, it’s a bit more expensive than the basic scanners that only tell you error codes, but it’s not that much more expensive considering all the extra features included. The color screen helps you make sense of all the data, it’ll let you know if you’ll pass your emissions test, and it can even display a live graph of various measures of engine performance to help you diagnose issues.


Gerber’s suspension multi-plier features 12 tools in one package, meaning you’re spending less than $2 per function today. If you don’t already own one, you should take this opportunity to rectify that. If you do, buy some more to give away as holiday gifts.


Before we go any further, let’s get this out of the way: Please don’t burn your house down. Alton Brown can show you the way to fry a turkey safely, and it’s so worth the extra work to not eat your Thanksgiving meal to the dulcet tones of firetruck sirens.

Advertisement

Now, why do you need this 30-Quart Turkey Fryer? Because frying has been the trendiest way to cook your holiday turkey for as long as there have been culinary trends. Because for $40, it’s a smart investment. Because it’s what William Shatner would want for you. (And if you’re not sure how to fry a turkey? There’s an app for that.)


Life is full of conflicting desires. Like, you don’t want to sacrifice valuable kitchen counter space to ugly, bulky appliances, but you also don’t want to have to dig your coffee maker out of the cabinet every morning when you wake up. A task like that is not meant to be taken on before you’re caffeinated.

Advertisement

Behold the Keurig K-Compact K-Cup Coffee Maker for just $50 at Walmart. It’s sleek enough to be tolerable as a kitchen fixture, and it’s also available in red and turquoise, if you dig colorful appliances as a decor choice. Does it make coffee as good as an Aeropress or a a $1,000 DeLonghi? No. But it takes like a minute and you have to push one button, which is a perfectly valid trade off.


Free bacon. Forever. Do I have your attention?

Butcher Box ships grass fed beef, heritage grade pork, and free range chicken right to your door for less than $6 per serving, and if you sign up with our exclusive link, you’ll get $10 off your first box, plus a FREE pack of uncured bacon in every box for the life of your subscription. Think of all you could do with an extra pack of bacon every month.

Your reader-exclusive bonuses come bundled with any of Butcher Box’s pre-selected boxes, which are priced at $129 for 24 servings, or $238 for 48 servings, which can be delivered every 30 or 60 days. For a nominal surcharge, you can also build a completely custom box, with your choices of proteins.

Note: You’ll have to enter your email at the beginning of the process. I know, it’s annoying.


Firstleaf is an online wine club that learns your preferences, offers tons of options, and most importantly, saves you money compared to buying from the store. It’s a solid deal any time, but it’s even better for our readers today.

Advertisement

Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Considering that you aren’t locked in and can cancel any time, that’s a bargain. But it gets even better for our readers, as promo code Kinja will waive the $5 shipping charge, for a limited time. That’s three bottles of wine (all of mine had MSRPs over $20) for just $5 each shipped, with no commitment.

You can read more about the service in my review, but if you choose to remain a member (I did), every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping.

Best Clothing & Lifestyle Deals

Ultimate boho brand Free People’s effortlessly cool, vintage-y styles don’t come without some heavy lifting on the part of your wallet. But today, flower children should head over to Nordstrom Rack, where Free People clothing, shoes, and lingerie are marked way down. Move quickly, since free spirits will likely buy up this stock faster than you can say, Coachella weekend 1 passes with car camping included.


Cole Haan makes some seriously great shoes, but the price tags can often make you turn your heels. So when they kick off their Black Friday (ahem, Grand Giving) sale, it’s the perfect time to act.

Advertisement

For a limited time, you get 30% off sitewide, including shoes, apparel, and yes, even already-discounted sale items. Their Semi-Annual sales are also 30%, but are only valid on full-price items, so you can step into some huge bargains if you play your cards right.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t recommend you check out their 2.ZERØGRANDs, as well as the sweater-like ZERØGRANDs with Stitchlite wool, which I just wrote about on The Inventory recently.


It’s not a race, but you should definitely hurry over to Adidas to take advantage of an extra 30% off their already heavily discounted sale section. Use promo code NOVSALE to snag this deal on everything from sneakers to athletic apparel, and feel like you scored a gold medal.


Bar none, Sport-Brella is the ultimate beach umbrella, and Amazon’s discounting the blue model for just $28 today, easily the best price we’ve ever seen. I know it’s cold out, and you have no interest in using this thing right now, but you could stash it in your garage until beach season comes around again, or even give it as a gift.

Unlike a regular umbrella, Sport-Brella leans backwards and attaches to the sand with stakes, creating a kind of semi-private cocoon with enough space for a couple of chairs and a cooler. Best of all, it sets up in about five minutes (once you know what you’re doing), and can provide a full day’s worth of privacy and sun protection. Today’s price isn’t the best we’ve ever seen, but it’s a solid deal if you have a beach trip on the horizon.


There is a light at the end of the seemingly never-ending skincare tunnel, literally. The Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask is a breakout-clearing marvel (and one of our favorite collagen-boosters), and now, it’s available on Amazon for just $21. The mask covers your entire mug, and delivers powerful targeted blue light, effectively zapping acne-causing bacteria, and red light, which reduces inflammation. The whole treatment is gentle enough for daily use, and it’s safe for those who are prone to irritation. Plus, it sort of makes you look like Iron Man.


Winter can really do a number on your skin, so don’t take any chances; take advantage of 40% off a variety of kits and sets from Paula’s Choice, a brand taking the guesswork out of the ever vital, often confusing skincare routine. The kits on sale battle everything from dehydration to redness, plus one set dedicated specifically to combatting common cold weather skin complaints.But that’s not all. Paula’s Choice is also throwing in a full-sized Omega+ Serum on orders of $79 and over with promo code OMEGA. If the kit of your choosing isn’t enough to meet that shopping cart minimum, might we suggest the brand’s Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment, the real MVP when it comes to achieving a flawless complexion? It’s a choice that we—and Paula, apparently—feel really good about.


Urban Decay is known for delivering ultra saturated shades with edgy names, and today, you can pick up a palette’s worth and then some for a steal. HauteLook is taking about 50% off a huge range of lipsticks, eyeshadows, primers, powders, and a lot of shadow palettes featuring a rainbow of bold hues and glittery textures. There are even a handful of offerings from their cult-favorite Naked line. Fill your makeup drawers now before this deal decays into nothingness.


Blunt Classic Umbrella | $63 | Amazon | Promo code ROWXP8JU
Blunt Metro Travel Umbrella | $47 | Amazon | Promo code ROWXP8JU
Blunt Lite UV Umbrella | $79 | Amazon | Promo code ROWXP8JU

Next time there’s a storm, you could spend $5 on a drugstore umbrella that will last approximately 40 seconds before disintegrating into flying shards of metal, or you could invest in a Blunt umbrella for 20% off with promo code ROWXP8JU.

Blunt umbrellas feature rounded safety tips to avoid poking anyone in the eye, include a special pocket for a Tile device tracker, and most importantly, can withstand winds of up to 72 mph (in the case of the standard model, others are lower). For reference, tropical storms become hurricanes at 74 mph, so if your Blunt ever succumbs to the wind, you probably have bigger things to worry about. You can see it in action in the video above, which never fails to impress me.

Advertisement

This deal is valid on the full-sized Blunt Classic, the portable Blunt Metro, and the new Blunt Lite UV. The code should work for any color as long as it’s sold by BLUNT USA – it won’t work on listings sold by Amazon directly, or other third party sellers.


If you’re planning your next outdoor adventure, or just need a gift idea for the most adventurous person in your life, Backcountry is here to help. For a limited time, take 20% off any full-priced item with the code TAKE20NOVEMBER.

If you need any inspiration, check out our reader polls for puffer jackets, raincoats, and socks; many of the finalists and winners are eligible for the sale.


Amazon seemed to go from having zero private label fashion brands to having one for every conceivable style of clothing seemingly overnight, and today, it’s Buttoned Down that’s getting the spotlight.

Advertisement

As you’ve probably guessed, Buttoned Down is a menswear brand that offers button down men’s shirts, as well as pants, ties, and even socks to complete the worker drone look. None of it is exciting, but these sorts of clothes are the backbone of most men’s wardrobe, so it’s nice to have a new, affordable option.

For a limited time, a bunch of Buttoned Downs wares are on sale for about 20%-50% off, including lots of non-iron dress and business casual shirts for under $30 (or even under $20, if you can abide by discontinued patterns), and pants under $50. There are tons of fits and styles available, so surely you can find a few affordable basics that your closet currently lacks.


If you thought one-piece animal suits were only for Halloween, think again. Certain soft varieties of onesie can, in fact, double as very warm, fun pajamas or loungewear, at least. Now, Target is taking 25% off several species of union suits, so you can zip yourself up in the plush pelts of everything from a unicorn to a panda to a flamingo. Just be sure to go wild on this sale soon.


You don’t need a gym membership to have access to a pull-up bar: You just need a doorway. If you don’t have one of those, I can’t help you.

Advertisement

This pull-up bar is only $26 today with promo code B375VEKM, and features a dozen non-slip pads so you can customize your grip. It sure beats going to the gym in this weather.


Daylight Saving Time is over, which means that you won’t see sunlight except through your office window for approximately four months. So if you’re commuting home, going for an evening jog, or doing anything else near roads, you’ll want to snag this Nite Ize magnetic LED clip today for an all-time low $5. The built in magnets allow it to clip onto clothes, hats, or bags, and the four bright LEDs run for up to 70 hours on the easily replaceable CR2032 battery.


Update: This sale is still going strong, but REI just posted a new set of “Peak Deals,” which are discounted up to 50%, but have very limited quantities. Check those out first, then dive into the rest of the sale.

Advertisement

REI famously opts out(side) of Black Friday, but instead runs one of their biggest sales of the year leading up to Thanksgiving. It’s a distinction without a difference, and it’s live now.

As part of their Gear Up Get Out sale, the outdoor superstore is offering up to 30% off on select gear and clothing — including all their best stuff. Our readers’ favorite men’s socks, puffy jackets, and raincoats are just a few of the great clothing buys currently up for grabs. In terms of tech, there’s a $60 gift card available with the latest GoPro, which is the same deal we’re expecting elsewhere on Black Friday.

Don’t wait too long to bring in your haul. Everything from apparel to outdoor adventurers’ must-haves are sure to go quick, and by November19, this sale will be off into the wild blue yonder.


You know Indochino for their reader-favorite custom suits, but they also make really nice blazers and chinos, and both are on sale already for Black Friday.

All blazers (including, somewhat inexplicably, dinner jackets) are $219 with promo code BLKFRI, and the chinos come in at two pairs for $129 with the same BLKFRI code (normally $79 each). The best part? You still get to go through Indochino’s famous customization process, and pick your preferences for everything from pocket angles to hem designs to jacket liners.


Clear out some closet space: Nordstrom ushering in Black Friday with a totally separate, but still very good Fall Sale. The department store is taking up to 40% off an expansive range of items for both men and women, including regular and designer apparel, shoes, accessories, cosmetics, and home goods. But don’t waste any time; just like leaves in winter, this sale will be gone by November 18.


Winter is all about layers on layers on layers — and Patagonia has vests, puffers, pullovers, and zip-ups galore, all of which are great for wearing alone on warmer days or all at once when it’s an arctic tundra outside. Right now, the winterwear purveyors are taking up to 50% off their Web Specials section until November 21. So it would behoove you to pile everything you can into your cart ASAP, so you can pile everything onto yourself in the cold months to come.

EALS

If you have an Akira fan on your holiday shopping list, you won’t find a better gift than this stunning 35th anniversary hardcover comic box set. The 2,500+ pages are the most faithful recreations of the originals that you can buy:

The Akira 35th Anniversary set is the definitive way to read Akira, reproducing the art at better quality than any previous version. It also retains the original right-to-left reading format and Katsuhiro Otomo’s original hand-drawn sound effects for the first time and features a newly-revised translation to get as close as possible to the originally-intended reading experience.

Amazon’s $117 price is solid (it’s the best price since last holiday season, when it got down to $90), but a $6.70 coupon brings it down to $111).


The Amazon exclusive 36-disc Dragon Ball Z: Seasons 1-9 Blu-Ray Collection is rarely in stock. And even more rarely is it on sale, as it as today at $35 off. That comes out to just over 2 cents per minute of content, which is pretty cheap for entertainment. Can a deal be Super Saiyan? Because if so, this one definitely is.


Even if you aren’t usually into anime, it’s worth giving Cowboy Bebop a try, especially when you can get the entire series for a mere $10. This deal is through Amazon’s digital video storefront, and includes all 26 episodes in HD, which normally sell for $3 each.


At $8 per month for Prime members, Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot for new members by offering four months for free, if you have an Amazon Echo device tied to your account.

This is the best deal they’ve ever offered on the service, and it’s even available to non-Prime members. If you have an Echo and you’ve never been a Music Unlimited subscriber, there’s no reason not to sign up.


Love to read but don’t have the time to sit down and actually read a book? Sign up for Amazon’s audiobook service, Audible, during this extended trial offer for Prime members.

Advertisement

For a limited time, Prime members can get three months of the service for free, rather than the typical one-month trial. That entitles you to a new book of your choice each month, plus two free Audible originals of your choice. Plus, every book you choose is yours to keep, even if you cancel. The offer is available to new subscribers only.

Note: After the three month trial ends, you’ll automatically be charged $15 per month, so be sure to cancel if you don’t like it.

For a limited time (probably very limited, as it’s capped at 50,000 uses), new customers can save $10 on any $35 Walmart.com order with promo code ELLEN10.

The code excludes photo, pharmacy, tires, gift cards, grocery pickup and delivery, personalized items and items sold by Marketplace sellers, but it seem that some gift card orders are going through, possibly just email delivery ones.

Email-delivered Nintendo eShop gift cards (or any gift cards, for that matter)? Red Dead Redemption 2? The NES and SNES Classic? They’re all eligible as long as your account hasn’t previously placed any Walmart.com orders.


If you’re in the market for a solid mid-range gaming headset on a budget, the Logitech G430 is down to $30 today, the best price we’ve ever seen.

The G430 works with PS4s and PCs, and its 7.1 surround sound makes a big difference in games like Fortnite and PUBG, because they let you hear which direction people are coming from while you hide in a bathtub.


Expancity | $47 | MassDrop

If you love city-building video games, Expancity looks like a surefire holiday board game hit. A relatively new game with a really solid 7.2 score on Board Game Geek, it’s marked down to $47 on MassDrop today, the first discount we’ve seen from the usual $60.

From the official description:

Collaborate and compete with your friends to build a thriving mega city. In Expancity, the name of the game is to build out and up as fast as possible. The more buildings you have, the quicker you’ll earn points. But be mindful, you’ll have to finish your building projects before you can start any more. You can earn additional points for building near common city features (like parks, banks, and schools) or grab some bonus points for working behind the scenes on secret contract cards.

Just note that for better or worse, it’s not realistic enough to have a “suck city coffers dry with massive tax breaks in exchange for ‘high paying jobs’” mechanic.


Are your NERF battles missing a certain je ne sais quoi? Well, maybe this is the quoi you’re looking for: A $20 collection of inflatable battleground pieces to take your yard arena to the next level.

With the BUNKR Build Your Own Battlezone 3-Piece Set, you’ll have somewhere to take cover from the barrage of darts and plan your next move. Finally, a real life application for all those hours of practice in video game stealth modes! If it seems overindulgent, consider this — you’d pay at least $5 more anywhere else, so really you’re being frugal.


Dads can be difficult to buy for. Be real, when was the last time you gifted your dad with something unique that he really loved? (Of course, he loves everything you get him, because you’re his kid, but you know. Really loved.)

This can be the year that you hit a Christmas home run, with the Star Wars The Black Series Darth Vader Premium Electronic Helmet. It’s $40 off at Amazon today, and hasn’t every man at some point in his life pretended to be a Sith lord? Now your dad can do it better than the rest with this helmet’s movie sound effects and multi-piece, adjustable fit.

Plus, to really stretch your gifting budget, you can add a Mickey or Minnie plush to your cart for just $5. (If there are no nieces, nephews, or children of any kind of your circle of acquaintances — which seems unlikely, but we don’t know your life — Toys for Tots would probably love to have your donation.)

If I’m being honest, I don’t even remember this thing from The LEGO Batman Movie. I probably need to watch it again. But it doesn’t even matter, because you can tell just by looking that The LEGO Batman Movie Bat-Space Shuttle is pretty bat-tastic. I mean, it comes with reggae, space, and firestarter Batsuit figures! And a Bat-kayak! And a Bat-moon buggy! Once $80, it’s dropped to just $56 at Walmart at Amazon. No one’s saying you have to buy it, but… why wouldn’t you?

Are you feeling the Christmas cash crunch yet? Wondering how Santa’s going to make a decent showing without putting you in the poorhouse? Amazon understands. When you spend $100 on a range of toys that covers everything from My Little Pony to Marvel to Hot Wheels to NERF, you’ll get $20 off at checkout. That kind of savings would make even the Grinch feel a little holly jolly, and if you can’t make a dent in your shopping list with this selection, you’re not even trying.

Note: The promotion is limited to toys shipped and sold by Amazon (no third-party nonsense!).


Always a surefire holiday hit, LEGO’s Star Wars Advent calendar features 24 tiny Star Wars-themed LEGO gifts, including brand new ones for 2018 like a snowman in a Rebellion helmet, a Rose minifig, and tons of miniaturized spaceships and speeders. It MSRPs for $40, but Amazon’s got it marked down to under $34 right now. You can start opening it in just a few short weeks, and it might not get cheaper before then.


Like the cartoon shows from your childhood, Paw Patrol is designed to sell toys, and you can make sure your younglings never experience the disappointment you felt about not getting an awesome Castle Grayskull for Christmas by having this 32″ Paw Patrol Tower under the tree. For just $70 (also at Amazon), you can purchase your child’s happiness!

This Toy of the Year Award winner features lights and sounds, and the vehicle launcher means that Paw Patrol can literally be on a roll. Only Chase is on the case with an included car, but most 5.5” and 6″ Paw Patrol vehicles are compatible, so perhaps the truckless Marshall figure that comes with the tower can get fired up in one that already resides in the playroom. Otherwise, he’ll be stuck relying on his Pup Pack.

This Super-Smart Roomba Is Cheaper Than It's Supposed to Be On Black Friday

Best Home DealsThe best home, kitchen, smart home, and automotive deals from around the web, updated daily.   

The Roomba 960 is a bit extravagant, but at over $100 off, it might be worth considering if less expensive robotic vacuums haven’t checked all of your boxes.

The key feature here is an onboard camera that allows the Roomba to build a constantly-updating map of your home, which means it can clean every square foot without wasting an hour ping ponging around the same room. Of course, you’ll also get Wi-Fi for app control, and a more powerful cleaning system than the entry level models.

Today’s $450 price tag is an all-time low, and in fact, it’s $50 lower than listings we’ve seen in Black Friday ad scans, so there’s really no reason to wait.

#1 roomba

The Roomba 960 is a bit extravagant, but at over $100 off, it might be worth considering if less expensive robotic vacuums haven’t checked all of your boxes.

#2 iphone x refurb

Refurb iPhone X | $725-$829 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The new iPhone XS is nice, sure, but is it ~$300 nicer than last year’s iPhone X? I don’t think so. Today only on Amazon, you can get a refurbished iPhone X unlocked for $725 (64GB) or $829 (256GB), in the color of your choice. That’s roughly what you would pay for this year’s XR, and while you won’t have the latest processor, the trade-off is a dual lens camera and a stunning OLED screen

#3 backcountry sale

If you’re planning your next outdoor adventure, or just need a gift idea for the most adventurous person in your life, Backcountry is here to help. For a limited time, take 20% off any full-priced item with the code TAKE20NOVEMBER.

If you need any inspiration, check out our reader polls for puffer jackets, raincoats, and socks; many of the finalists and winners are eligible for the sale.

#4 philips hue refurb

We’re expecting to see quite a few Philips Hue deals on Black Friday, but the prices won’t get anywhere close to what you’ll find in today’s Gold Box.

Advertisement

The one caveat here is that they’re certified refurbished (for the most part). But on the other hand…they’re lightbulbs; you plug them in and forget about them. So should it really make a difference? I don’t think it should when you can get a four-bulb color starter kit for $115, a white ambiance starter kit for $78, or a white starter kit for $51.

If you already have a Hue system, you can grab individual color bulbs for $25, easily the best price we’ve ever seen. There are also LightStrips, LightStrip extensions, and more on sale for incredibly low prices. The deal is only available today, but honestly, I’ll be surprised if it lasts through lunch.

#5 home depot appliance sale

If there’s a day that will make you take a long, hard look at your current appliance situation, it’s Thanksgiving. Is your oven capacity adequate for everything you need to cook? Do you have enough fridge space for all the leftovers? Can your dishwasher handle the massive flood of plates and utensils coming its way?

Advertisement

The more questions you answered “no” to, the more you’ll save during Home Depot’s appliance sale, where buying two appliances will net you $60 off, but a purchase of six or more will save a whopping $500. That means you can upgrade your entire suite at once! (If you need help finding a sixth appliance to add, wine coolers totally qualify.)

Note that some exclusions apply, but many items are already legit deals at Special Buy prices.

#6 urban decay

Urban Decay is known for delivering ultra saturated shades with edgy names, and today, you can pick up a palette’s worth and then some for a steal. HauteLook is taking about 50% off a huge range of lipsticks, eyeshadows, primers, powders, and a lot of shadow palettes featuring a rainbow of bold hues and glittery textures. There are even a handful of offerings from their cult-favorite Naked line. Fill your makeup drawers now before this deal decays into nothingness.

#7 pull up bar

You don’t need a gym membership to have access to a pull-up bar: You just need a doorway. If you don’t have one of those, I can’t help you.

This pull-up bar is only $26 today with promo code B375VEKM, and features a dozen non-slip pads so you can customize your grip. It sure beats going to the gym in this weather.

#8 household supplies gold box

Behind every festive holiday gathering is a heap of cleaning supplies to get the house guest-ready and a second stash to handle the aftermath when the fun’s all over. If you’re planning to have people over at any point during the season (or, uh, ever), take advantage of Amazon’s “household holiday essentials” Gold Box, which is offering discounts on everything from dish soap, Ziploc bags, and Reynolds wrap, to laundry detergent, Clorox wipes, and paper towels. You’ll need this stuff at some point; might as well stock up now.

#9 space pen

There’s an old joke that NASA spent millions developing a pen that could write in space, and the Russians used a pencil. Whatever, it was totally worth it. MassDrop’s selling two-packs of the official Fisher Space Pens for $32 right now, so you too can write in zero gravity, in sub-zero temperatures, or even under water.

Multiple finishes are available at checkout, some of which have a surcharge associated. If you want a brass one, Amazon also has them on sale for $16 each.

#10 Gimbal

If you have Spielberg-sized filmmaker aspirations, but phone-sized camera equipment, consider investing in this reasonably priced YI Phone Gimbal. It automatically stabilizes pretty much any smartphone, so shaky footage is a thing of the past, and you can connect it to your phone via bluetooth for seamless stopping and starting. Plus, it operates on three axes, and offers 360-degree panning, so you’ll get the whole picture at every shoot. The gimbal costs $80 with promo code RM829X7Q, but can you really put a price on the magic of cinema? Get yours before this blockbuster sells out. Aaaand action!
