#1: Early Black Friday Roomba Deals
Our readers have bought thousands of entry-level Roomba 650s, but today we’ve spotted an all-time low price on the upgraded 690, which adds a few much-needed features.
As far as vacuuming performance goes, this should be essentially identical to the 650; the difference all comes down to connectivity. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to schedule and start the Roomba from anywhere via a smartphone app, or even control it with your voice via Amazon Alexa or Google Home.
I know “smart” features on a lot of products are basically just an excuse to charge more, but as a Roomba owner, I think these make a ton of sense. I can tell you from experience that programming a Roomba without an app is something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy, and the ability to start it remotely means you can run the Roomba while you’re out of the house, and come back to clean floors.
Today’s $275 deal is an all-time low, and a match for what we were expecting to see on Black Friday, so there’s no reason to wait.
Update: The high-end Roomba 980 has also dropped to its Black Friday price of $800 a little early. Needless to say, that is not cheap, but compared to the 690, it’s a significantly stronger vacuum, and has a suite of sensors that can map your house, and even show you on an app which rooms it’s cleaned, and which it still needs to get to.
#2: Sony Headphones
Sony’s MDR line of Bluetooth headphones sold like gangbusters during Black Friday, but if you were holding out for noise cancelling models, Amazon’s rewarding your patience today with the biggest discount ever on the top-of the line MDR1000x.
These headphones have all the features you’d expect in a good pair of Bluetooth headphones these days: NFC pairing, 20+ hour battery life, and even LDAC Hi-Res audio compatibility. But the secret sauce here is noise cancellation, including a special mode that lets ambient voices through either at all times, or just when you cup a hand over the right earcup. $228's still a solid chunk of change, but it’s rare to see these dip below $300, let alone this low.
#3: A $22 Bidet
A lot of people are reflexively appalled by the idea of a bidet, which makes no sense, because they’re amazing. Today on Amazon, you can score one from Oak Leaf for $22 with promo code LRBL9CPC, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on one of these.
That’s basically nothing for a product you’ll use (hopefully) every day, but this deal could sell out any time though, so purchase or get off the pot.
#4: Philips Wake-up Light
Phillips’ insanely popular Wake-Up Light is here to change your life. This is the best model in the lineup, and includes an FM radio and five different natural sounds to wake up to. Grab it right now on Amazon for $99 after clipping the $20 coupon, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen.
Unlike an unsympathetic traditional alarm clock, the Philips Wake-Up Light eases you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. After the light gets you out of your REM cycle and ready to wake up, an audible alarm will finish the job at the time of your choosing. Plus, it also doubles as a very warm and pleasant reading light as you’re getting ready to go to sleep.
#5: A Solid Dash Cam
$38 gets you the Yi Dash Cam today, down from its usual $50 with promo code MAVWC29E. The key feature here is 1080p/60 recording, compared to the 1080/30 you normally see in this price range. That means you have twice as many frames to get a clear shot of a license plate. Its f/1.8 aperture, 165 degree FOV, and 2.7" screen are nothing to sneeze at either.
#6: t op-Rated Christmas Tree Stand
The Krinner Christmas Tree Genie carries a 4.7 star rating and an Amazon top seller badge, and it’s easy to see why. It can adjust to hold trunks between 1" and 7" in diameter, it closes with the press of a foot pedal, and even features a built-in water level indicator so your tree doesn’t dry out as quickly as your holiday spirit.
$80 isn’t chump change, but it is the best price of 2017 on a product that you’ll reuse year after year, so it’s probably something worth investing in.
#7: Men’s Cole Haan Shoes
If reliability is something you crave in a pair of shoes (if it isn’t, you may need to reconsider), I bet you have Cole Haan in your closet. And if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, Amazon is knocking down two classic styles to just $100. Grab a pair of Kennedy Wingtip Boots or the uber-popular ZERØGRAND Oxford in any color you’d like while they’re on sale, today only.
#8: Under Armour Gold Box
Amazon’s running a new fitness-focused Gold Box to help you stay active through the holidays, this time with a solid selection of Under Armour apparel for men, women, and kids all marked down to great low prices.
Head over to Amazon, and you’ll find deals on shorts, tops, sneakers, and more. Just note that lots of the items have multiple color options once you get to their product pages, and that these prices are only available today, so you may want to run.
#9: Yamaha home theatre gear
If you’re still listening to your TV through its built-in speakers, or are just ready to upgrade your sound system to surround sound, Amazon’s got a pair of nice deals from Yamaha today.
I suspect more of you will be interested in this sound bar for $90. It doesn’t have a wireless subwoofer, but it does have two integrated woofers inside the bar, so you’ll get decent bass in a very small package. It is refurbished, but today’s deal is about $60 less than buying it new.
If you prefer building your home theater system the old fashioned way, this 7.2 channel receiver has never been cheaper than $380. It has pretty much every feature you could want in a receiver, including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, plus Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, and some built-in music apps.
#10: Pressure Washer
You might not have an immediate need for a pressure washer, but if you own a home, it’s a useful thing to stash in the back or your garage. For a limited time, Amazon’s marked down a popular GreenWorks washer down to $98 for Prime members, within $9 of an all-time low. Just be sure to get yours before this deal is blasted away.
