If you’ve been meaning to buy yourself some noise canceling headphones, there’s no time like the present. These Sony XB950s are all the way down to $113 today, a match for the best price we’ve ever seen. They would also make a great gift for anyone that spends a lot of time on planes or trains.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
- One month for $6 | Usually $7
- One year for $35 | Usually $40
- Three years for $90 | Not offered to the general public at all
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.
The oven is a hot piece of real estate on Thanksgiving day, which inevitably means some of your painstakingly prepared dishes will get left out in the cold as dinner preparations all come together. Or, you could invest in these Salton stainless-steal warming trays, now $75 for one that accommodates four-plates and $64 for one that holds three. They promise to keep your food nice and toasty as the meal gets underway, or use them to keep a plate warm for any Thanksgiving stragglers who are late to the party.
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.
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 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.
Amazon’s Black Friday deal on Blink Indoor Home Security Camera Systems has already gone live! Kits start at $67, so if you’ve ever been curious what your pets do at home while you’re gone all day, now you can afford to find out. Other potential uses: Keeping footage of mundane conversations so you can win the next argument about whether or not you said a certain thing; a motion-detecting alarm system; bringing truth to the claim that Santa “sees you when you’re sleeping” and “knows when you’re awake.”
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
