A few years back, when I was a budding tech journalist just trying to find my place in this world, the “all” in all-in-one stood for “all the rage.” Every PC maker was trying to mimic Apple’s success with the iMac and most of them couldn’t hack it. There’s clearly an audience for a desktop that de-clutters your desk by housing all the guts inside the monitor. If there wasn’t, Apple wouldn’t still be making them. And neither would HP for that matter, one of the few companies that still sells the things. What works for the HP All-in-One 22, currently $100 off for Cyber Monday, is its price point.

Whereas the iMac starts at upwards of a grand for a 22" screen and middling processor, this budget option packs comparable specs for a fraction of the cost: a razor-thin bezel outlines the display, enveloping an AMD Athlon 3150U (similar to an 8th Gen Intel Core i5, which is more recent than the one found in Apple’s base model iMac), a blazing fast NVMe 128GB SSD (presumably for quickly booting up Windows 10), a 1TB SATA hard drive, 8GB of RAM, and—holy shit a DVD drive—haven’t seen one of those in a while, along with a 3-in-1 memory card reader.

If you’re looking for something a little more high-end with more screen real estate, the 27" HP Pavilion All-in-One is on sale as well, at a deeper $150 discount, using the promo code 5STACKBFCM21.


You got the games this weekend. Now it’s time to accessorize. HyperX gaming accessories are on sale today at Amazon, with discounts going as high as 50%. There’s a lot to explore here whether you’re looking for headsets, keyboards, or even Nintendo Switch accessories. We’ve added some noteworthy deals below, including the HyperX Cloud Alpha gaming headset, but I’m especially interested in the joy-con charging station. The handy little accessory can charge four joy-cons at once and features LED indicators to let you know when a controller is done charging. It’s only $15 too, which is a small price to pay for a curiosity.

Earbuds are still very much in fashion when it comes to preferred listening modes. The only downside is they do tend to be a bit more expensive than their tethered brethren. Until Wednesday take 40% off the M5 aptX Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds from Mpow. Just remember to clip the coupon and use code D3O7SXCN at checkout.

I’ve tested a few things from Mpow over the years and I remember them being a great per value option. If money is tight they’re a good brand. The M5 aptX earbuds have been updated with new tech to improve the bass and produce a crisper sound for tunes and clearer sound for calls. The Qualcomm chipset has improved the noise-canceling function on this version too. You’ll get up to six hours of playtime off of a single charge and with the case add another thirty-six. The case will fully charge in two hours, not bad for how much life you get out of it. These little buds are sweatproof so all good for those who plan on working out with them. Easy to pair and switch between calls and music. They connect quickly with your voice assistant to keep you connected no matter where you are.

It also works with a variety of smartphones. The light also works with most devices that support a USB port. The wireless controller lets you switch on the fill light directly, change modes, and light levels. This is a really nice deal and a great starter set for anyone wanting to give their creative endeavors a boost. Remember the #1 TikTok tip is well-lit videos do better all around.

If you want to use a laptop in style, you can’t go further than the take ASUS has been showcasing this year.

The ZenBook Pro Duo is a unique design, with an extra screen between the display and the keyboard, which enables a user to use both of these with the included stylus pen, to better focus on those Photoshop projects.

At $400 off the price it’s at a great level for what it offers. From the 4K display to the latest Intel i7 CPU with 1TB NVMe SSD and 16GB DDR4 RAM, alongside a GeForce 2060 GPU, any needs will most likely be fulfilled with this machine.

An NVMe SSD drive is a great choice if you want to store your Operating system and any important files on your existing PC. Using SSD, the boot-up times are significantly faster, where you will see the log-on screen in under half a minute.

The Sabrent 1TB NVMe variant supports Gen4 PCI-Express 4, so make sure your motherboard supports this.


Anker Soundcore Life P2 | $36 | Amazon

I’ve been using a pair of Anker’s Soundcore Life P2 since January, and they’ve been fantastic AirPods alternatives. They were down to $50 back then, but Anker has dropped the price down to its lowest ever mark at $36, no code necessary.

These buds feature CVC 8.0 microphones for noise reduction, 40 hours of total playtime (seven in the buds, the rest in the charger), an IPX7 water rating, and Bluetooth 5.0 AptX for a cleaner wireless connection.

More importantly, these little bundles of plastic acoustical joy deliver powerful sound from the graphene drivers inside. If you’re new to the true wireless game, the Anker Soundcore Life P2 offers a perfect starting point.


Sonos One (Gen 2) Smart Speaker | $149 | Amazon

A speaker should be able to blend in to any part of your home, alongside being able to generate loud, booming sound when required. The Sonos One achieves that in spades, with a loud but clear volume regardless of any genre chosen, alongside being able to be voice controlled by Amazon Alexa.

If you buy two, you can pair them together, creating stereo sound for one room if you wish. It’s a great design that will fit most homes, and at 25% off it’s an ideal time to look into a smart speaker from Sonos.

If you just picked up a new iPhone, you probably noticed there’s no power brick included this time around. If you have a pile of old chargers lying around it might not seem too troublesome, but even those probably won’t charge your device as quickly as newer options would. You could buy a newer, faster charger straight from Apple, but those are costly and Anker’s options are just as good. Right now, for Cyber Monday, you can get up to 43% off select Anker gear.

If you need a longer charging cable, this 6ft option is down to $20, while the company’s 10,000mAh PowerCore Slim power bank is down to $15. You can also get this nifty four-port USB-C/USB-A wall charger for $18 off.


Anker Nano Charger | $24 | Amazon

Apple decided to forgo having a plug included in their new iPhone 12 line this year, for environmental reasons. However, in order to use their MagSafe charger effectively, one still needs to use a 20W charger, and any plugs you have had from Apple previously won’t fulfil that.

This is where the Anker Nano Charger comes in, where you can easily plug int your USB-C to Lightning Charger, or the MagSafe accessory, and reap the benefits of fast charging.


Anker Soundcore 2 Bluetooth Speaker | $30 | Amazon

For all the music nerds, the Anker Soundcore Bluetooth speaker is down to $30. If you like to blast your music while you’re hiking or even sunbathing in the backyard, this device is perfect for you. It has about 66 feet of range between you and your phone, so all the barbecues you have to pass the time will be filled with dope music. I would hop on this deal before it’s gone!


Case-Mate Clear Case for iPhone 12 and 12 Pro | $28 | Amazon

Sometimes, protecting a new phone means that you will have to cover it up with a case that hides its new colour or camera feature. However, clear-cases have been able to improve in their durability, to protect against sudden drops, which is where the Case-Mate comes in.

Compatible with the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro, the Case-Mate Clear Case also supports wireless charging, either Qi or MagSafe, so you can still use the newer features of the phone whilst protecting it against any drops.

By using the Nixplay app, you can pick and choose which photos will be displayed on this 10.1-inch display, alongside sending a photo by a special email, which will then automatically display on the frame. A nice touch if family members are unable to visit for Christmas.

These can also be hung up or displayed in landscape, so you can cater the photos to whichever room or wall you choose to display these digital frames.


Acer Nitro 5 Laptop | $799 | Walmart

When you hear the words “gaming laptop,” what do you think of? For me, I see glowing RGB lights under the keys that let everyone around me know exactly what I’m doing. The Acer Nitro 5 is a little more my style, opting for a slick red and black color palette instead. The 15.6" gaming laptop is $799 at Walmart, which is $300 lower than usual, and it definitely packs a punch for its price. For the spec heads, it runs an Intel Core i5, RTX 2060, and has a 144Hz refresh rate. It comes with a 1TB hard drive, which will let you store a fair amount of games on the go. It’s a great entry-level device for anyone looking to dip their toes into the wild world of gaming laptops.

A big TV deserves big savings. Best Buy currently has Samsung’s 82" Class 8 $600 off its usual price. Now down to $1200, this 4K TV has plenty of bells and whistles to justify its size. It’s got two 10W speakers and has a 240 motion rate. The built-in V-chip allows you to easily set parental locks on content so your kids don’t stumble into anything. Then there’s the smart features, because of course it’s a smart TV. Streaming apps are integrated into it and you can control the TV. All in all, there’s quite a lot this bad boy can do, making it a solid all-in-one option. Just make sure you can fit it in your entertainment center.

You may use headphones day-to-day that just don’t fit for when you’re jogging or doing weights; you want something that’s tailor-made for these tasks without worrying if they’ll fall off.

This is where the Jaybird Tarah Headphones come in, which are sweat and waterproof for those rainy-day runs, alongside a six-hour battery lifespan.

They also have a remote control attached, which makes it so much easier for controlling your music or even phone calls as you’re jogging away, without having to reach for your phone or your fitness watch.

At $70 off the normal price, they’re ideal headphones to use just for exercise, so you can use your expensive headphones for everything else.


4TB XPG Spectrix RGB Gaming SSD | $400 | eBay
4TB XPG Spectrix RGB Gaming SSD | $400 | eBay

Now that you’ve stocked up on games from Black Friday sales on Steam, EGS, Origin, Uplay, and the like, you need to start thinking about expanding your storage. And while SSDs aren’t sexy, it is necessary to own one—and one with ample capacity for all your favorites. With some terribly optimized games like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War taking up upwards of 100GB on your fastest drive, investing in an SSD with, say, four whole terabytes of space isn’t as bold an ask as it was just a few years ago, nor is it as prohibitively expensive as it once was.

The RGB-ified Spectrix RGB gaming SSD from ADATA gaming brand XPG, for instance, is on sale for just $400 on eBay, down 55% from its $900 list price. Because it’s an M.2 NVMe drive, it can drive “sustained” 3,500/3,000 MBps read/write speeds, according to ADATA, and fits snug in your motherboards M.2 slot, no additional cable management required. By comparison, an older SATA III SSD like the ADATA SU800, which costs half the amount for half the storage, claims read/write speeds of just 560/520MBps. Bang for buck, this price is unbeatable for anyone in the market for storage performance that keeps up with the latest PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles.

‘Tis the season to upgrade your home gaming setup. With tech deals going left and right, you’ll find no shortage of options when it comes to things like monitors. Here’s another one to add on to your list of possible purchases. A pair of 27" LG UltraGear gaming monitors are on sale at Best Buy. The screen is $400, unless you want USB ports on it, in which case it’s $450. Here’s a quick rundown of what you’re getting with this: a 2560 x 1440 display, 144Hz refresh rate, 1 ms of response time, and G-Sync technology to help cut down on screen tear. For gamers who don’t care too much about pushing their games to the ends of the Earth with ungodly resolutions ad refresh rates, the UltraGear is a great balance of the two. making for a solid gaming option.


For a first-gen Apple product, the new MacBook Air featuring the company’s own custom chipset is reviewing surprisingly well, including from our friends at Gizmodo. And, like clockwork, it’s already discounted $100 at Adorama, at least if you’re cool with 8 gigs of RAM and either a 256GB or 512GB SSD. While souped-up versions of the lappy still adhere to their sticker prices, you can score the base model or double its storage for $899 and $1,149, respectively, for Black Friday.

Considering the M1 processor-packed MacBooks just came out last week, anyone planning to pick one up in one of these exact configurations ought to do it before the price hikes back up. While you might think it’s a permanent, artificially discounted price intended to leverage sales of surplus product, it could actually be a temporary, artificially discounted price intended to leverage sales of surplus product. We’ve seen it before, with AirPods Pro and the 4th Gen iPad Air on Amazon, so it isn’t unprecedented.

Here’s what Caitlin McGarry, Consumer Tech Editor at Gizmodo had to say:

... overall, the new MacBook Air is the best overall laptop I’ve ever used. It’s slim, it’s portable, its performance is killer, its battery life will absolutely change my life when I’m doing more work on the go again, and the base price for the improvements delivered by the M1 chip is unbeatable. This isn’t just the best MacBook Air, it’s the best Air by a mile.

I didn’t expect 2020 to be the year of the Mac, but, well, I didn’t expect anything about this year to unfold as it did. If you’re already a fan of Apple’s laptops, buying a new version with M1 is a no-brainer.

Televisions can be tricky game of finding which one suits you and your home best. From the bezel to the type of display it has, it can be confusing to find the right one.

For Black Friday, Sony have seemingly lined up a few of their best televisions from this year, especially as their PlayStation 5 console has now been released.

Featuring a 4K resolution and an LED display with HDR, colours will pop out to their fullest on the X800H, alongside featuring a ‘Game Mode’ that can change the television into a gaming display for your latest console.

It also has Android TV, so you can access all the latest streaming apps, alongside Apple’s AirPlay 2, so you can mirror an image from your iOS device, directly to the TV.

I know that we’re in a bit of a “boy who cried wolf” situation at this point, but Cyberpunk 2077 is actually coming out. No, for real this time: it’ll be here on December 10. Really, I understand your skepticism, what with all the delays that have befallen it this year, but this is a real video game that you will be able to play with your actual hands soon. For those of you who believe me, here’s another fact: if you preorder the game at Amazon, you can save $10 and get it for $50 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. CD Projekt Red’s upcoming open world game promises to be memorable at the very least, so preorder a copy if you’re curious and use the extra $10 you saved to buy John Wick on DVD or something.


Nintendo Switch Fortnite Wildcat Bundle | $300 | Best Buy

Image: Giovanni Colantonio

We’ve got ourselves a Cyber Monday surprise, folks. Nintendo revealed a Fortnite-themed special edition Switch that’s actually pretty neat. You get yellow and blue joy-cons, plus a custom dock with classic Fortnite characters on it, like The Banana Guy. The Switch has Fortnite pre-installed on it (it’s a free game anyways, so not much of a deal there), but it also gives you 2,000 V-Bucks. You’ll also get a download code for The Wildcat Bundle, an in-game cosmetic pack for Fortnite. At the moment, it’s only available from Best Buy and you’ll need to pick it up in-store after ordering online. Walmart had it up earlier and it’s already sold out there, but keep your eye on it for now.

Aw yeah, it’s time to party. My apartment? It’s party central over here. I’ve got all kinds of chips. You name it, I’ve got it sitting in a colorful bowl. Refreshments? Oh, you’re going to be refreshed as hell, friend. Balloons? That’s a thing people have at parties in 2020 right? because I bought 70. Still, it feels like something is missing. Oh right, I need some party games to get this bad boy REALLY going. Luckily, Target has an exclusive bundle featuring Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Party for $80. It’s a perfect package for anyone looking to get a few casual multiplayer games in their Switch rotation. And with that, my party is complete!

If you were tracking game sales this past Blyber Weekend, you might have assumed prices weren’t going to get that much lower on Cyber Monday. Games were already selling for dirt cheap, so surely they couldn’t drop further. Well good news, you and I were both dead wrong. Target has put a deal on top of their deals, creating a sort of dealception on games. You’ll get an extra 15% off on select games, with the savings appearing when you add something to your cart. Let’s do some math real quick to show you what exactly that means. Ghost of Tsushima is on sale for $40, so that means the price drops to $34 at checkout. The Last of Us Part II? $25. Death Stranding? $17. Minecraft Dungeons? $13. I could do this all day, and I will because it’s my job. Check out the list and see how low all the games you just bought this weekend are now.

You’re sitting in the barbershop waiting to get your hair cut. There’s a bin of toys for you to play with while you wait. What’s this? They have VIDEO GAMES? Wow, look at that, you can play a whole X-Men or Transformers game right now! Forget the haircut, this barber shop is an eCafe now! Now, those same Tiger Electronics machines from your past are Amazon’s Deal of the Day. You can grab one for $10, though you can’t really put a price on childhood nostalgia, can you?

You may have bought the Boba Fett LEGO Helmet already, and you may be tempted to add more to the collection, which is where this Stormtrooper variant comes in.

At 647 pieces, it’s another great activity of building it over Christmas, and then deciding just where it will be placed in the home. Subject to your partner’s agreement.

Getting a headset is one thing, but getting a headset that comes with its own mixer is a whole different beast. Today, Amazon has the Astro Gaming A40 headset on sale for $200 and it does indeed come with a MixAmp Pro TR. That means that you can easily adjust your headset and microphone volume without having to go into your computer’s sound settings. The headset itself is fully customizable with removable speaker tags and cushions. You can even remove the microphone and move it to whichever ear you’d rather have it on. Between the mod potential and the mixer, which is just convenient, there’s a lot to play around with here.

No snark here. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is down to $50 at Amazon, plain and simple. Sure, I could get snippy about Nintendo’s reluctance to mark down games, but why bother? It’s $10 off a superb fighting game that’s essential for Switch owners. I’ll take it! This is an especially notable deal for anyone who just bought a Switch during this whole mess of sales we’re living through right now. The game features all your favorite characters like Mario, Link, Kirby, Joker from Persona 5 and he has a literal gun that he uses to shoot people, and more. Grab it at a discount and have fun.

You can also control time across 17 different Marvel locations alongside a four-player Super Hero battle mode for those times on the Switch where you just want a quick match.


12 Months Switch Online + 128GB microSD Card | $35 | Best Buy

So, you’re going to buy all these Switch games on sale this weekend, right? Well, there’s two questions to consider in the wake of a buying spree. One, how am I going to store all of them on the system’s pithy internal storage? Secondly, how am I going to play a game like Splatoon 2 if I don’t have a Nintendo Online subscription? Get ready to kill two squids with one stone, because Best Buy has a bundle up that answers both needs. You can get 12 months of Switch Online and a 128GB microSD card (emblazoned with a happy-go-lucky mushroom) for just $35. That’s an $85 value normally, so it’s an excellent deal for new Switch owners especially.


I’ve been sifting through a never-ending barrage of game deals this Blyber Weekend, but I think I’ve finally found the winner. Dishonored & Prey: The Arkane Collection is $20 right now at Amazon. Why’s that such a good deal? This package just came out in August and usually sells for $60. Sure, it’s a bundle of older games, but what a bundle it is. You’ll get Dishonored, Dishonored 2, Dishonored: Death of the Outside, and Prey for that price. Just about each one of those is worth $20 on their own, so this is a no-brainer if you’ve yet to play any of these standout titles from Arkane Studios.

  • Until Dawn

$45 is a fantastic price for the games you can play on the service, essentially saving you many more dollars if you bought them separately.


We’ve seen Ubisoft slash the price on games like Watch Dogs: Legion, Just Dance 2021, and even Assassin’s Creed Valhalla this Blyber Weekend, but the studio just took things to another level. You can now save $10 when you pre-order its next game, Immortals: Fenyx Rising, at Amazon. For reference, the game doesn’t even come out until December 3, so you’re getting a deal from the future here. Ubisoft’s latest open world game looks like it takes many cues from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with free climbing, gliding, and rune-like abilities that can be used to solve puzzle shrines. Except it’s about Gods. If that sounds up your alley, you can grab the PS5, PS4, Xbox, and Switch versions at a discount now and thank yourself on Thursday.


Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Digital Code) | $40 | Amazon

If I have one blind spot as a gaming fan, it’s anything that involves the prefix “Xeno.” Xenoblade, Xenogears, Xenosaga, you name it, I’ve never played it. The RPG franchise has been running since 1998 and its found renewed success in the 2010s with the Xenoblade series on Nintendo’s systems. Today might be a good time to find out what the fuss is all about, because Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is on sale for $40 at Amazon. You’ll get a digital download of the 2017 Switch RPG with your purchase (sorry, physical collectors). It’s especially good timing, because winter is coming up and I could use a 100-hour JRPG to hibernate with.

I don’t know who exactly this very refined-looking beer pong set was made for, but I have to say: It looks pretty sleek compared to the more familiar red solo cup version of the game. And there is obviously some audience for it since it’s currently Amazon’s number one new release in drinking games.

The Hammer + Axe wooden beer pong set includes a sleek wooden tabletop, 25 cups, two balls, and a bag to store it all in for $17.

Of course, with many of us staying at home this winter due to the pandemic and avoiding the kind of large gatherings beer pong is intended for, maybe it’s better to just challenge someone in your household like a partner or roommate to a one-on-one game of basketball. Loser has to take a shot (or two, or three). The price on this one isn’t quite as nice. But just look how cute it is.

If $29 is too high for your drinking games, this wooden Drinkopoly game is down to its lowest price in 30 days at $17.


Paper Mario: The Origami King | $50 | Amazon

Most of this year’s Nintendo Black Friday deals revolves around games that are a few years old. Games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons have remained at $60 while slightly older titles like Luigi’s Mansion 3 are discounted. That makes this sale on Paper Mario: The Origami King particularly noteworthy. Nintendo’s paper-themed RPG came out earlier this summer and now you can grab it for $50 at Amazon (you may need to add it to your cart to see the price). The Origami King boasts a surprisingly charming story, which features an especially memorable subplot involving a bob-omb companion. If you’re just looking for another game to play on your Switch after a relatively light year on first-party exclusives, it’s worth a peek.


The Wonderful 101: Remastered (PS4) | $24 | Amazon

Here’s a snapshot of how long 2020 has been. Back in February, PlatinumGames announced its Kickstarter campaign to remaster Wii U cult classic The Wonderful 101. The campaign was fully funded within hours and the game got a full release in August. Now, The Wonderful 101: Remastered is 41% off at Amazon (though only the PlayStation 4 version at the moment). That’s three years worth of video game arc in under 12 months. If you’ve never played it, the remaster is a genuinely unique experience that’s almost like Pikmin with superheroes. There’s even some light drawing mechanics built into its combat, because it was a Wii U game, after all. At $24, it’s a great time to catch up on it and make sure that you don’t miss it the second time around too.

Gaming headsets are a big ticket item this Blyber Weekend, as retailers are slashing prices on a variety of options. That’s good news for gamers who just broke the bank getting an Xbox Series X|S or PlayStation 5 and are now scrounging for accessory deals. If you want next-gen compatible sound on a budget, Amazon has Turtle Beach’s Recon 200 headset down to $30. That’s one of the better deals on a gaming headset we’ve seen so far. While it doesn’t include the bells and whistles of a high-end headset, it’ll do everything you need it to do: namely give you surround sound audio and a flip up microphone for talking to your squad. They come in either black or white, so you can conveniently grab whichever one corresponds to your new console’s color.


If you were hoping for a quick Assassin’s Creed Valhalla price drop this Black Friday, your patience has paid off. Amazon now has the brand new release (like, really brand new) down to $48 on PlayStation 5 or PS4, or $50 on Xbox One/Series X/Series S. The price cut is pretty surprising given just how new Valhalla is, but Ubisoft appears to be quick on the price slashes this Black Friday season. Both Watch Dogs: Legion and Just Dance 2021 are heavily discounted at the moment less than a month after their release. Valhalla probably won’t drop to half price any time soon like Watch Dogs, so this might be one of the lowest prices you’ll be able to get it at this year. Happy raiding, Vikings.


Switch Game Sale | $27 - $50 | GameStop

Shhhh, nobody tell Nintendo that GameStop is holding a pretty significant sale on some of the Switch’s biggest first-party games. Considering that it’s rare to see Nintendo games on sale it all, it’s kind of wild that Fire Emblem: Three Houses or Splatoon 2 down to $27. I fear that Nintendo will find out and take this momentary moment of bliss away from us. Just in case that happens, it’s worth scrolling through the list of discounts, because there are some serious hits included. While most of them aren’t 2020 releases like Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it’s still a great way to strengthen your library with games like Yoshi’s Crafted World and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, so poke around and see what strikes you.

Lets’a go! Super Mario 3D All-Stars is down to $50 at Walmart today, a familiar price for anyone who grew up playing the games included in the collection. Back in 2002, I remember getting $50 from my mom so I could go to the mall and gleefully pick up a copy of Super Mario Sunshine. Then there was 2007's Super Mario Galaxy, one of the first games I bought on my own when I went off to college. At the time $50 seemed like a real investment. Seeing that price tag on these classic games is kind of nostalgic, isn’t it? Okay, I’m reaching. It’s a little bizarre that the collection was $60 to begin with, but the price reduction here is a welcome one. Super Mario 3D All-Stars will literally vanish from shelves in March, so if you’ve been hoping for a discount, now might be the time to jump to it.


Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (3 Months) | $20 | Target

It’s sort of cliché to say that Xbox Game Pass is the best deal in gaming at this point, but it continues to be true. Microsoft’s gaming subscription service gives you access to hundreds of games for a monthly fee, which can pay off quickly if you’re the kind of person who buys a lot of games. If you’re looking to try it out, Target is currently selling a three month membership to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $20. Ultimate gives you access to the service on both PC and console, so it’s perfect for new Xbox Series X|S owners who are looking to expand their library quickly. An Ultimate membership also lets you try out Microsoft’s cloud gaming beta, allowing you to play select games on supported devices like Android phones. It all adds up to a pretty sweet deal for Xbox owners that’ll make you into the kind of person who just constantly tells people about why Xbox Game Pass is a great deal. Oh no, what have I become?

If you’ve been working at home as many maybe you’ve still been putting off how to make the environment as agreeable as possible. As we look to not be headed back to offices anytime soon it’s time to invest in good ergonomic furniture. Branch is here to help with that and more. They aim to save your back, your wallet, and the environment. Starting today take up to 20% off ergonomic chairs and desks in their early Black Friday sale.

Now you ask, how are they helping the planet? For every $100 you spend they’ll plant 5 trees. That’s pretty dang cool. It’s not often we get to shop and help Mother Earth. This is a real mind, body, and soul deal if you ask me. Keeping an eye on our globe and keeping your productivity up. You don’t need to be sitting in an uncomfortable chair or hunched over a makeshift work desk any longer.

Upgrade to Branch’s best selling ergonomic chair for $289 (down from $349). You can pick from 3 colors: white, grey, or black.

I’m a fan of a standing desk and while this one is $779 it works for shorties like me (at 5'3”) all the way to essentially LeBron James. I personally feel much more focused when I’m standing and you definitely get into the grove faster in my opinion. This comes in a sleek woodgrain beige color.

You can bundle these together too because there’s nothing wrong with options when the days are long. This set will run you around $940. But look at it this way, that’s also 45 trees you just helped plant.

I have a friend that, as soon as November 1 hits, her tree is up. And this year she told me it’s the one thing she’s been looking forward to and has kind of helped her cope with not being able to see her family. That’s deep. There’s no shame in finding comfort in things like this and if a big ole pine tree is going to bring you joy you might as well buy one that’s deeply discounted. This 6.5 ft. Winchester pine with clear lights is 65% off and needs a good home.

With the lights already on it, half the work is done. I used to have to put a version of this tree up for my mom when would visit. Once you figure out where all the connections are it’s quite a sight to behold. There are 400 pre-strung lights on this one. These trees actually do feel authentic and definitely look real. It’s a pretty full tree and the branch tips are mixed for optimum ornament hanging. I can tell you it is rather easy to assemble and comes with a folding metal stand. If you’re ready for the holidays to be here then hop on this sale.

This will ship for free.

Take $30 off the basic Essential Kit or take $40 off the more comprehensive Premium Kit. Wisdom Panel is the leading canine genetics company and has tested over 1.5 million dogs so the database is vast.

With a simple swab of the cheek, register your kit online, and then send it off to the lab with pre-paid shipping. The whole process will take about two weeks but hey there are 350 breeds to go through. While genetic testing can be scary it is important and can be crucial to pinpoint specific health issues, especially early to create a long-term plan. My best friend got her first dog this year and while puppy Winston is a joy I totally don’t believe the breeds she was told he is. We are totally getting one of the kits to determine that I’m right! But she’ll also get a better scope of what makes Winnie well Winnie. How he got his unique curly locks, his digging behaviors, and his overall wellness. All the info she needs so she can be the best dog mom and give that little fur angel a long happy life.

Both of these will ship for free.

UPDATE: Winnie is exactly 50% Cavalier King Charles and 50% Poodle. So I was wrong. He’s a full-fledged Cavapoo.
