Look, we should all be staying home and staying put for the next several weeks. You know it, I know it— and Best Buy knows it too. This 50-inch TCL LED 4K smart TV is down to only $230 so you can snuggle up on the couch with all your favorite shows, movies, or your console of choice for less right now.

Since it’s a smart TV, it has built-in access to Netflix and all the other popular streaming options. This price is a $120 discount and is lower than you can find it for on Target and even Amazon. Don’t let it pass you by!

Back when Quentyn Kennemer—a certified photography nut—worked here, approximately one week ago, the Sony Alpha a7 III topped off his list of the best digital cameras known to man. So instead of parroting the spec sheet of something I’ve never used, I’ll let him tell you why, posthumously (jk, he left us for Forbes):

The Sony A7-III fits a variety of needs. With a 10fps silent shutter, you’ll be able to shoot sports, children playing, and other fast-motion scenes in a powerful buffer-filling burst. Its impressive autofocus system has up to 693 focus points in its phase-detection system covering about 93% of your screen, and with features like Eye-AF, Sony makes it easy to produce sharp photos. It also has some of the best battery life you’ll find in a mirrorless camera thanks to Sony’s upgraded NP-FZ100 battery.

With that said, the Sony Alpha a7 III mirrorless camera is currently $300 off at Best Buy, dropping its previously collar-tugging $2,200 price tag down to a more digestible $1,900. Granted, the Alpha a7 III is not for casual users, as mirrorless cameras in this range are typically recommended for professionals and aspiring professionals seeking the perfect snapshot of family gatherings, senior photos, and even visual art projects.

For those of us who don’t need all the bells and whistles, e.g., a 22.4-megapixel sensor, up to 204,800 ISO, and a dedicated exposure dial, note the 20.1-megapixel ZV-1 is also on sale for $100 off the sticker price. For $700, influencers and wannabe influencers alike will appreciate its automatic shooting capabilities, dedicated Bokeh Switch (which can be personalized to do other things, if you prefer), and bespoke compatibility with Sony’s Vlogger Accessory Kit, which just so happens to also be on sale, for $150.

Whether shopping for the photographer or rising YouTube star in your life, this is one holiday sale you don’t want to miss. Skip the Black Friday rush and head on over to BestBuy.com for instant savings on two of Sony’s top picture takers.

You probably already have a streaming box of some sort, but maybe not, or maybe it’s feeling a bit long in the tooth. Roku devices still don’t support HBO Max, which is a huge bummer, but if that’s not a priority for you, they offer plenty of streaming options without costing too much. Plus, there’s some pretty great deals right now.

The Roku Ultra, typically $100, is down to $70 right now at Amazon, Best Buy, and Staples. For your money, you’ll get 4K streaming, voice control, Bluetooth streaming, and support for nearly every streaming service you could hope for (aside from HBO Max). If you want something more barebones and don’t want to spend too much, Roku’s Streaming Stick+ is down to $30 right now at Best Buy and Staples, but doesn’t support ethernet connections and lacks Dolby Vision.

You could also get the even more basic Premiere at Best Buy or Staples, but it’s only $5 cheaper than the Streaming Stick+ and lacks voice control and extended wifi range. If you do need HBO Max, there’s always the Chromecast.

I have to get something off my chest. The world gleefully dunked on Microsoft for its admittedly confusing naming convention with the Xbox Series X and Series S, but I’d like to remind everyone that gaming laptops have names like Asus ROG Zephyrus G14. With that out of the way, the aforementioned Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is $250 off at Best Buy right now. The 14" laptop comes with a Ryzen 9 processor and 16GB of RAM, making it an ideal portable gaming device. As an added bonus, you’ll get one free month of Xbox Game Pass for PC with your purchase, so you can take advantage of its power right away. Sometimes it’s just the little things, you know?

If you’re on the hunt for a new tablet, you can save $80 on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab A7. The lightweight tablet features a 10.4 inch, ultra-widescreen display and Dolby Atmos surround sound speakers. Samsung clearly wants you to take advantage of both of those features, so the tablet comes with two free months of YouTube Premium and six months of Spotify Premium. Just don’t get misled by the pricing on the pricing on the page, which displays how much you’d save if you traded in your current tablet on top of the $80 instant rebate.

A computer without any storage space won’t do anybody much good, but that’s no reason to go out and buy a whole new rig. A portable SSD is a great way to expand your computer’s storage without having to pay a hefty upgrade fee when you’re configuring your new computer, and you can carry it with you wherever you go. Samsung’s SSD’s are fast, reliable, and small enough to fit in the tiniest pockets of your favorite bag. Right now at Newegg, you can save $10 on Samsung’s 1TB model, which should be plenty of storage for most people looking to offload a few things from their main drive.

If you’re in need of a microSD card, Samsung’s PRO Endurance is currently on sale. You can grab a 64 GB card for $13 or a 128GB card for $20. The cards are especially useful for video monitoring tools like dash cams and other security options, with 100 MB/s of read and 30 MB/s of write speeds. As an added bonus, the cards come with their own SD adapter, making it easy to plug it into a computer and offload footage. Just make sure not to drop it or you may have a hard time finding the precious, little card.

Apple Smart Keyboard Folio | $120 | Amazon

Here’s my impression of a bad stand-up comedian trying to explain what a smart keyboard is: “Hey, you ever notice how everything’s smart these days? Smart phone, smart TV, smart fridge. All my appliances are smarter than me! Marone! (The comedian is Italian, I guess.) Just the other day, I heard about this new thing: smart keyboards? You guys hear about this? It’s a keyboard you attach to your iPad. You don’t need to charge it, or pair it with your device, or nothing! You just attach it and start typing. Now I can stop pecking at my iPad screen with my big fingers. What am I, a freakin’ bird? Fuhgeddaboudit!”


Anyway, you can grab an Apple Smart Keyboard Folio from Amazon for $120. The keyboard is compatible with the 12.9 inch iPad Pro and has all of the features mentioned in the above stand-up routine. Tip your waiter on the way out.

Are you used to playing games on a regular, flat monitor? A different world is possible. A curved monitor can offer a more immersive experience, putting your peripheral vision to better use. If you’re curious about how that differs from a regular monitor, the GIGABYTE G27QC is $260 at Newegg with the promo code 2BFSTNW257. The 27" monitor features a 2560 x 1440 display, 165Hz refresh rate, and 1500R native curvature. It’s a monitor that’s built with gaming in mind, so it’s a great choice if you’re looking to reshape your PC playing experience.

2 Years + 3 Months Free | $89 | NordVPN

In his roundup of the best VPNs at Gizmodo, Andrew Couts called NordVPN “fast and easy to use,” citing accessibility and affordability as reasons to subscribe. Though it’s almost always marked down from its $287 list price, the 2-year plan is nonetheless the cheapest option to get started with the service and continue using it long-term. For a limited time only, though, it’s not only 68% off, bringing your total to just $89 for 730 days, but it also comes with an extra 3 months, a blessing from the Nordic gods, through November 29.

Couts says in his abbreviated review:

No matter what you pay, you’ll get access to more than 5,400 servers in more than 60 countries, a bunch of features you may or may not want, and, because the company is based in Panama, assurances that your data—or lack of data, as the case may be—is outside of U.S. and European jurisdictions. Like every other VPN on this list, NordVPN claims to have a “strict no-logs policy,” so most of your data isn’t collected, the company says. It does still collect your email address, payment information, and the timestamp of the last time you launched the VPN.

But NordVPN isn’t without its downsides. “...some researchers have found that it sends your email address and Google Ad ID to a marketing company when you register through the Android app and contains some trackers,” Couts explains. “Another downside is that some of NordVPN’s servers are rented, which means another company you need to trust is in the mix. And yes, one of those servers got hacked in 2018.”

Still, if you want one of the most reliable VPN clients, with the budget to support its robust infrastructure, you can’t go wrong with NordVPN. Plus, with availability on virtually every platform you can think of—from macOS to Android TV—it’s equal parts ubiquitous and acclaimed. Endorsed by PCMag, Wired, CNET, Business Insider, and more, it may be time to board the Nord hype train if you’re somehow unwedded to a VPN already.

Google Assistant is built into each model, just in case you want to have a nice chat with your TV (or ask it to turn off the lights for you). Deals start at 50" models and go all the way up to 85", if you’ve got an entertainment center that can fit it.

Microsoft is currently running a staggering sale on Xbox games, which features over 750 titles. It’s an impossible number of games to try and list out, so here’s a few highlights for you to check out instead. First off, you can buy Watch Dogs: Legion and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as a bundle for $91 (though the savings are entirely due to Watch Dogs being discounted individually). Then, we’ve got Star Wars Squadrons down to $24 and Marvel’s Avengers at $30. That’s two big fall 2020 releases for less than the price of one Xbox game. For anyone looking to relive their Halo glory days, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is $26. That’s only the tip of the iceberg too. Think of a game that didn’t just come out in the past two weeks and there’s a good chance you can find it discounted. Go poke around for yourself if you dare, but don’t get lost.

We’re all on the hunt for indoor, socially-distanced distractions that can help us survive the pandemic-boosted winter ahead. LEGO sets continue to be one of the best options: they’re engaging, potentially time consuming, and can work off a little bit of creative energy in the process. And then you get a cool toy to display and/or play with further at the end.

Luckily, Amazon has put a bunch of the LEGO Speed Champions kits on sale right now, letting you build amazing, licensed supercars for a fraction of the price of the real ride. On the simpler end, there’s the 180-piece Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 for just $12 right now or the 275-piece Ferrari F8 Tributo for $16. A Lamborghini Urus ST-X and Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO two-pack sells for $40, as does a larger, LEGO Technic 579-piece Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.

Amazon is running a huge sale on first-party Sony games and everyone is invited. Ghost of Tsushima is here for $40 and it brought chips. The Last of Us Part II is sulking in the corner pretending to have a bad time, but it’s $30. God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn, both available for $10, have been flirting all night and we all know where that’s going. There’s plenty of other classics here too, just living their best life at a reduced price. Look, it’s been a rough year and everyone just needs to blow off some steam right now, so this end of the year bash is a perfect send-off for PlayStation 4 owners who just want to party with some big exclusives they missed over the years.

Ubisoft has been on a role when it comes to software this Fall, releasing huge open world games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion. Of course, those games pale in comparison to Ubisoft’s true killer app: Just Dance. The rhythm series is still chugging along with annual installments, turning family living rooms into dance floors. The latest installment, Just Dance 2021, quietly released two weeks ago as the gaming world was distracted by the PlayStation 5 launch. Today, Amazon Prime users can pick it up on Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for just $30. if nothing else, Just Dance 2021 is a good excuse to introduce your family to Lizzo and force them to dance along to “Juice.”

This year is nearing its dramatic conclusion, which means that 2021 is getting ready to rear its ugly head. For now, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be too different from 2020 for a while, so the stay-at-home gaming marathon will continue. If you’re a PlayStation owner and you want to make sure you’re set for coming year, you can get 12 months of PS Plus and 12 months of PS Now for $45 each. PS Plus is an especially good value for new PlayStation 5 owners right now, as it gives you immediate access to an entire library of PS4 classics via the PS Plus Collection. Even if you’re not planning on playing online anytime soon, having games like Persona 5 and Bloodborne on your new console without having to buy them is a nice touch.

Nintendo is notoriously stingy when it comes to discounting its first party games. Even games that have been out for years will stay put at the $60 price range unless the company decides to rerelease them with a “selects” banner. That makes the recent wave of Nintendo Switch sales happening in the build-up to Black Friday seem special, despite being extremely normal for any other company. This time around, Best Buy has five Switch hits down to $45: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Party, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Longtime Switch owners may already own these (I hear that owning a Switch but not Breath of the Wild is illegal, in some states), but it’s a good deal for anyone who’s looking to pick up a Switch for the first time this Black Friday.

“Looking cool, Joker!” That’s what everyone will say when they come to your house and see the steelbook edition of Persona 5 Royal proudly displayed on your entertainment center. Well, either that or “Is this some kind of anime?” The game is down to $29 at GameStop, which would be a great price for one of the best JRPGs in recent years on its own. Now add in the fact that you’re getting this year’s beefed up Royale upgrade, which adds new content to the game, and a fancy steelbook case that comes with a dynamic PlayStation 4 theme to boot. You truly will be looking cool, Joker.

With the launch of Destiny 2: Beyond Light, I’ve made my not-so triumphant return to the Crucible, the game’s PVP mode. As it turns out, everyone has gotten better at the game, and I’ve gotten much worse. If you want to raise your K/D ratio fast, here’s a tip: all you have to do is log into a match that I’m in and wait for me to shoot hand cannon shots 20 feet above your head, giving you ample time to one shot me with just about any weapon, it seems. If you’re a PlayStation owner and you want in on this easy target practice, you’ll need to make sure you have PlayStation Plus, which allows you to play games like Destiny 2 online. You can get a full year of Sony’s online service for $30 from Eneba, saving a little extra with the code 50PERCENT at checkout. Make sure to wave emote at me before you embarrass me into orbit.

The saga of Cooking Mama: Cookstar’s bizarre release, and subsequent de-release, feels like it happened 20 years ago. But it was only this March when the video game industry was hit with an absolute whirlwind of cooking controversy. Recapping the story now feels like a fever dream, but here are the basics for the uninitiated: the game was quickly removed a day after it launched, with series’ creator Office Create threatening legal action against publisher Planet Entertainment for releasing an “unauthorized” game. It turned out that Office Create did not sign off on the game’s final release due to quality issues, so Planet Entertainment released it anyways without seeking the company’s final approval. On top of all that, the game became the center of a tinfoil hat theory that it was being used as a way to mine cryptocurrency from the Switch.

All of that made Cooking Mama: Cookstar an immediate collector’s item for fans who just wanted a piece of history. The game was impossible to come by after its failed release, but now you can add it to your Switch collection for just $30. Consider investing in a secure vault where you can keep the game safe for decades.

Available on PS4 and Xbox One for $30, it’s a great price to try out something new!

If you’re looking for a great gift for an Animal Crossing fan my favorite Switch bag is 20% off right now. This beautifully constructed bag can be used as a wristlet or a shoulder bag. Heck, I’ve actually used this as a purse because it’s so cute. It fits both the Switch and Switch Lite and has 4 cards slot in the front pocket so you have options on the go. The quality of the bag really is tops and I was impressed by the high-quality canvas. The strong material protects both the inside and the outside of the bag and obviously the contents within. Your Switch is safe and sound from scratches and damage-causing bumps. The zipper moves smoothly and keeps all contents snuggly within.

It comes in 4 colors/patterns. There is a green, a pink, or a white/teal with the classic Nook leaves as an option. And a white color with colorful little bugs, fossils, and fruits on it too called “Island Pattern.”

I have a terrible habit of starting to drink a La Croix and then forgetting it somewhere in my apartment when there’s about 1/4 can left. That’s a wasteful habit I’d like to break, and I really am trying to cut down on the amount of waste in my life and budget these days.

One way to solve that dilemma (or the issue of the expense of canned sparkling waters and sodas) is to make your beverage of choice yourself, and a limited-time Black Friday week deal on Amazon is here to help you do just that.

Happy Hours seems like a thing of years gone by, well at least ones in person. If you’re still participating in zoom get-togethers with coworkers add a little sneaky snack to the mix. This 5 pack of Happy Hour Candy combines the fun of a gummy with the fruity flavoring of some of your favorite cocktails.

Yes, these are non-alcoholic so it’s only mimicking a saucy experience. But you can totally crush these while on the clock and have no worries of running into booze laced mistakes. These 5 boxes are just $19 and each have their own theme. The Celebration Bag (2 of these) has 4 bags each of Passion Fruit Mojito, Berry Daiquiri, and Spring Paloma. That’s quite a tropical combo. The Party Bag (also 2 boxes of this one) has 4 bags each of Watermelon Margarita, Moscow Mule, and Gin & Tonic. A little more traditional. And then there is the Bubbles Bag (just 1 of this box) with 4 bags each of Berry Royale Mimosa, Pineapple Bellini, and Mandarin Spritz. As a prosecco lover, that box sounds divine. These could be the perfect afternoon treat or even the ideal adult-esque stocking stuffer.

I have a very sweet senior terrier. And while he’s still got some pep in his step he does like to just chill on his cozy donut most days. I discovered Wolf Spring a few months ago and decided to see if Benny would like it. After a rather long day at the agility course, my Jack Russell got treated to a bottle of the Senior formula. It was a hit. If you have an active fur baby or even an older doggo keep Wolf Spring Dog Water on hand. This 12 pack is $5 off with the clipped coupon and is a must for pupper owners.

Wolf Spring is basically dog Gatorade and when do you drink Gatorade? When you work out a ton and/or you are sick. (Hangovers too but I hope your dog doesn’t have one of those.) That’s what this is for. If you take long walks, runs, hikes with your fuzzy best friend toss a bottle in your bag for them too. I bought a pack for my friend who just got her first dog ever. There’s been some learning like when the pup ate something questionable and was sick for a day or so. Since he couldn’t keep anything but water down this was a great solution to replenish those lost electrolytes. Wolf Spring was formulated by vets and is all-natural, plant-based, and full of vitamins. No need to mix with water, just pour into a bowl or even mix with their food. Just pick from Puppy, Adult, or Senior and add this to the “just in case” box.

Segway Ninebot ES4 Electric Scooter | $500 | Amazon

Contrary to what the haters might tell you, electric kick scooters are a badass substitute for public transit amid a pandemic. For upwards of $5,000 you could buy a private car OR you could spare the environment and your wallet a little extra hurt by spending 90% less on a Segway Ninebot ES4 electric scooter, now 35% off on Amazon. On a normal day, you’d spend $770 on this bad boy, which is more than $500. In fact, do the math and you’ll find it’s $270 more.

The ES4 is one of Segway’s higher-end scooters, boasting a maximum speed of 18.6mph in Sports Mode, with a maximum climbing slope of 15%. Inexplicably, you can travel 28 miles at a time for up to 7 hours on this thing, more than the length of a marathon, thanks to its 374 watt-hour battery. That is significantly higher than the next step down, the ES2 that costs $89 more than the marked down ES4 right now and can only travel 15.5 consecutive miles at 15.5mph at its highest setting. Its slope climbing abilities are also 5% less, and it only lasts half the amount of time on a single charge.

Those desperate for a more efficient way of getting around to pick up a light load of groceries or travel back and forth from the laundromat may want to consider this deal while it’s still on the table. Who knows how long it will last or whether you’ll otherwise be able to snatch it up in time for the holidays.

Keeping an eye on a puppy or an active doggo if you need to be out of the house puts a lot of minds at ease. I’ve seen it even within my own group of friends since a few quarantine pups joined the furry crew. The Furbo Cam is one of the best on the market and today only you can save well over $50 on it.

Monitor your pooch right from your phone no matter where you go. The HD camera has an excellent 160-degree wide-angle view even in low light. I pet-sat for a pal of mine ages ago not knowing he had one of these and was scared senseless when he used the 2-Way Audio to say hello to me. He does have two very vocal border collies so the barking alert sent a million messages to his phone when I’d visit them. There is even a treat tossing feature that also gave me a bit of a fright at first but is actually very cool. These cams are easy to set up as you just plug it in, download the app, and hop on your Wi-Fi. A strong and steady internet connection helps keep the feed stable so you get alerts within seconds. But all in all a quality cam to keep in contact with your fur-baby throughout the day.

Normally this would be the time of year where I’d buy new towels for my cousin who stays with me when she visits from England or for my old roommate who crashes on the sofa on her way up to Boston.

Sunham’s soft spun cotton bath towels are just $3 and the hand towels are $2. So you can have a set for only $5.

Dyson V7 Fluffy | $200 | Newegg

Let me tell you, the Dyson V7 is a game-changer, and I’m not just saying that because it’s on sale for $200 and we get a commission from each purchase. I bought one myself back in June and haven’t regretted it. Mounted to our wall, it’s much easier to store than a larger upright floor vac you might tuck away in a closet and rarely touch. I use mine almost every day to pick up kitty litter as my cat explodes from his spaceship. For smaller spaces, the canister yields a sufficient enough capacity that you can go about a month without emptying it out. Not to mention the actual process of dumping out the dirt and dust only requires the simple pull of a lever.

A $150 discount is not nothing, especially considering I paid $20 more for mine back in June. While it may not have the longest battery life in the world, clocking in at just 30 minutes, those living in quaint apartments or rancher-style homes shouldn’t take more than that to give their place a nice sweep. Oh, and even though this discount is pretty great already, it’s covered by Newegg’s Black November price protection, so if the price drops any lower before November 22, you’ll get a refund for the difference.

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. mixed pine tree with clear lights is 71% 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 for lighting it’s quite a sight to behold. There are 400 pre-strung lights on this one. These trees actually do feel pretty real and definitely look authentic. It’s a little slimmer 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 this is what will make it feel more like the holidays for you then hop on this sale.
